Some things never change

Well, it has been over a year since my last posting and so much has happened: the right-wing government in Spain was kicked out at the elections in March 2004 (a few days after the train bombs in Madrid) after lying to the public and manipulating the public broadcaster corporation in a massive scale. They tried to blame ETA while they knew fully well it was not them.

There is now a labour government (centre-left) in Spain but some things never change. The right wing press continues to incite hate of all things Catalan and Basque; their behaviour would be classified as xenophobic, fascist and incitement to hatred in any other western democracy. The conservative party, now in opposition, still shows no remorse about their disgraceful behaviour in March 2004.
Catalanophobia in the Madrid-based press is rampant and shows no signs of diminishing. Some things never change.
