Spexit, the Spanish anti-EU neologism that made an impact on social media late last year, has returned to the lists of trending topics today after a Belgian justice ruling to suspend the European Arrest Warrants against exiled Catalan president Carles Puigdemont and minister Toni Comín.
As soon as the Belgian court decision was released, Twitter was flooded with comments calling for Spain's withdrawal from the European Union.
Here are some of the tweets:
"For Spain's departure from the European Union."
(Song lyrics (over images of Spain's Socialist and Podemos party leaders) include: "For the disappearance of the nation... immunity for murderers...")
La justicia belga suspende la euroorden de Llarena contra @KRLS y Comín por considerarles inmunes.— Cristina Seguí 💚 (@CristinaSegui_) January 2, 2020
Bélgica, protectorado de etarras y yihadistas, cargándose de un plumazo la soberanía judicial española.
Alfombrado el camino hacia el #SPEXIT https://t.co/pimJ51ovdv

Belgium, protectorate of ETA terrorists and jihadists, destroying Spanish judicial sovereignty at a stroke.
The carpet has been unrolled along the road to #SPEXIT."— Cristina Seguí

Un país extranjero como #Bélgica decidiendo que las sentencias españolas no valen nada
Si esto es la UE, o la reformamos junto al legislativo español (parte responsable) o #SPEXIT
