"The EU is opposed to countries fracturing"

Where on earth did you get that from?

The "nation state" is the absolute bane of the EU and the Commissions aims. They want to get rid of the troublesome nations states that keep getting in its way.

The EU doesn't give a toss for a "wounded Spain" - Just think how easier it would be to control a whole bunch of interdependent regions than it is to control "nation states" that hold referendums and veto what the EU Commission sees as being necessary for their project Europe.
