Prime minister's Rajoy's party took a hammering, its worst ever result and lost most of their seats to the unionist Catalan centrists,  an obvious message in there of disapproval.
Most important outcome of this election is that there is still a comfortable majority of deputies elected that support a referendum, 78 out of 135 and  the slender majority of declared separatists still held firm.
Imo it's Rajoy's party who have been the catalyst for the surge in Catalan separatism with their strutting of extreme  Spanish nationalism and persistent sniping away at Catalan autonomy with their legal challenges.

The Catalans might be better off. The Brits won't.
