Even one of the parties governing currently Catalonia has said some days ago that they long for a state, the Catalan state. I have nothing in favour or against that option but I just want to point out that this also should be told to the American millionaire who wants to build Eurovegas in Spain. He should be told that building Eurovegas in Madrid he can be sure that Eurovegas is been built in Spain. If he builts Eurovegas in Catalonia it may happen that, who knows, in the future, he has built Eurovegas in a state that is different from Spain. I don’t see nothing wrong about if we are really serious about a transition to our own state then the least we can do is to tell that to the ones who want to invest in Catalonia.
Mr. Adelson should also take into account that the language of Catalonia is the Catalan language so that only building Eurovegas in Madrid can he be sure that he is building Eurovegas where people have the words Las Vegas as their own: Castille. Only building in Castille Mr Andelson is building the new Las Vegas where Las Vegas where born … Las Vegas are related to Castille and not Catalonia. Las Vegas is a Spanish name.
Building the new Las vegas in Madrid is like returning to the origins: people who spoke Spanish created a city called Las Vegas and now Mr Adelson may bring back las Vegas to the place where people have the Castilian and not the Catalan as their original language: Madrid.
