I've read some crap on here over 10 years but I await the comparison between Teresa May and the Grand Inquisitor of Valladolid.

I've read some crap on here over 12 years, and the notion that the British Foreign Office isn't anti-Semitic is about as rational as Carter's decision to push Iran to accept Khomeni's return in the late 70s. But you'll come back to reality at some point, just as Carter did.

Until he was attacked by that giant swamp rabbit!

Hadn't you heard.

The Middle East is so passé in for your chances of the Halliburton production line starting up again.

North Korea's the new gravy train for those military supply chain jobs in Texas. Great margins on cluster bombs.

Ah "understanding"

you are right, I have little understanding of why people would win any pleasure out of a one sided "fight" between a mob of humans and an injured single animal.

Yes I sit in judgement because that is what an honest, kind, gentle person should do. To sit back and just nod wisely that "it is cultural" is a poor act.

And that some sickos should travel across the pond to see this travisty of a festival is terrible.

Why not go to the Faroes and watch the natives (born in on the islands) use their traditional fibreglass boats and their traditional outboard engines to haul whales up onto the shore to stain the sea red.

No, such things are disgusting and people have the right to know.

That others feel these things should be done for entertainment leaves me very sad.

Or to Canada to see baby seals being clubbed to death?

But when I was in Spain first time I went to see this blood bath and appreciated the pageantry and at that time local enthusiasm for the sport. Good to see once.

We now have a “Running With the Seals” festival in Canada. Better for older people and very safe.

I've anticipated liberals trashing another country's culture. It's just entertaining to watch these responses. At least I got one or two actionable intels for my upcoming trip. Cheers!

Those "liberals" are also living in Spain. Hence why some regions have band the events. So Spaniards can "trash" their own culture.But I doubt if I would hazard a guess from which political spectrum they were or are from.
So may be you should live and let live?

only in the USA is "liberal" seen as an insult, luckily for the rest of us it means "freedom".

trashing someone else's culture... only since 1726, meanwhile in the USA .....

Since when is liberal an insult in Amerika?>

All or most of my friends are proud 'liberals' - say that in say California and see what reaction you get. Bernie Saunder and ilk are proud liberals - well Bernie a self-professed socialist - forever dooming his chances to become POTUS - liberals could be elected but never a socialist - not even for dog catcher.

To oppose bull fighting is not just for liberals but anyone who is humane. Soon bull fighting will be a footnote in history when the state sanctioned such blood baths.
