Gold Mercury President meets with Alex Salmond and Carles Puigdemont

Nicolas De Santis, President of Gold Mercury International, met the former First Minister of Scotland, Mr Alex Salmond, and the President of Catalonia, Mr Carles Puigdemont, at Gold Mercury House in London.

Gold Mercury hosted a radio programme led by the leading Spanish radio channel Cadena SER as part of its work to discuss and debate the future of Europe.

BRITAIN’s exit from the EU could have a knock-on effect prompting the Spanish region of Catalonia to launch its own independence bid. The future of Europe and the EU includes discussing and understanding separatist and independence movements, especially in key nations such as the UK and Spain”

said Nicolas De Santis, founder of BRAND EU (The European Union Brand Centre) and President of Gold Mercury International.

Mr Puigdemont, 53, was elected as President of Catalonia in January 2016, following an agreement between the pro-Catalan independence parties Together for Yes and the CUP.

The upcoming EU referendum in the U.K. will be carefully monitored within the Spanish region of Catalonia, we will monitor any reaction and digest what that could mean for Catalonia’s own separatist ambitions”

said President Puigdemont.

For its part, the EU has said that it should not be taken for granted that an independent Catalonia could even stay in the EU as it does not want to set a precedent for other separatist movements in Europe.

The U.K. referendum on June 23 is just three days before a national election re-run in Spain on June 26 (following an inconclusive election in December last year). Puigdemont believes that the recent political situation in Spain – one of stalemate and indecision with parties refusing to work with each other – would be repeated and that the Catalonia issue would remain unresolved.

Nicolas De Santis Live On CNBC On Consequences Of Brexit

Gold Mercury President and BRAND EU founder, Nicolas De Santis, was interviewed on CNBC Italy by anchor Angela Antetomaso to discuss the key issues related to the upcoming EU referendum in the UK.


BRAND EU is the independent brand marketing champion of the EU, acting as a research and communications centre to promote the EU brand in Europe and the world. On the upcoming UK referendum on the EU, Nicolas De Santis said that via its BRAND EU programmes, Gold Mercury International will do everything possible to change the negative image of the EU in the UK.

The negative repercussions of a BREXIT are global and far reaching. It will destabilise economies, international security. BREXIT benefits no one except our enemies. So far we have been successful with BRAND EU in creating a communications base to build a campaign from. Brexit is a possibility as the issue will be put to the vote of the public. One of the biggest issues is that in the UK we have a brutally Eurosceptic media which will stop at nothing to sell papers and influence people in a negative way towards Europe. Hopefully the British public will be able to make their own mind up, do their own research, otherwise, we could be sleepwalking out of the EU and into oblivion. We will do the impossible to avoid it”.

De Santis had previously forecasted in the same CNBC programme in June 2015 on the impossibility of a Grexit saying:

Greece has been lent €240 billion so far and is in a technical bankruptcy, or let’s call it a ‘controlled bankruptcy’. Its lenders need to keep flowing funds into Greece while giving it more time to get its house in order and agree a payment schedule that allows the country manage its internal politics and funding needs. The world does not want a Grexit and neither do the majority of the Greeks”.
