Of Bulls and Ballots

There's an article in the Economist on the political situation in Catalunya that's worth reading:

     The future of Catalonia: Of bulls and ballots

On one hand it's very good to see a forensic article on these subjects, but I don't think it is all that well informed, and certainly think it is making a false connexion between independence and the issue of banning bullfights. Those who are campaigning for the ban have always said that it is about cruelty and suffering to animals rather than anything to do with national identity, autonomy or independence ... and the Canary Islands (also part of Spain) voted to ban bullfighting some years ago without it being linked to these things.

I wrote a comment [# 47] and others might want to follow or join the debate.
