Thought the Same, never one to miss a name drop though our Stevie...and of course a chance to come in all guns blazing to attack me

Why is it hatred against a whole country I have Spanish relatives not to mention friends.

Stevie, have you been down to one of those Tappas bars this afternoon?
J2 made a fair comment reference the funding given by the EU for bull burning!
Surely the only funding should be from the freaks that enjoy such activities!

I notice yet again your defence of J2 - are you related?

But hey, yes, thread creep must be stamped out!!!!
You really need this paranoia of yours looking at SD, it can't be healthy.

Even the wifi router you use (if from BT) could well be supplied by a company Fon from Madrid.
When the Spanish devote their energies to something (see football) they have the talent and dedication to become world beaters. Yes the Brits (well English) have a lot of money in their Premier League, but what good has it done their national team?
I think the real resentment is that Spain has turned the corner in the recession by exporting more and becoming more competitive, whereas the UK has used Quantitive Easing and stoking up a house price bubble. Still very effective..but in the long run??

Omg.

The thread was jogging along along nicely, then you have to post irrelevant things, just to heat things up.

Then the accusations of 'hunting in packs' and 'talking Spain down' start.

You are the poster that takes offence most easily, and is often the instigator.

Bull fighting to footie, I don't see the connection either.

Sorry but I see that post full of hate.
Are Zara, olive oil, Ribera wine, Fon, the football teams, etc all examples of only doing something when getting money from Brussels.
Lest we forget, when British banks were going bust left,right and centre, it was a Spanish bank Santander that was asked to help out by saving the likes of Abbey National, Bradford & Bingley, the Alliance & Leicester etc.

Yes, nothing to do with bullfighting, but I don't see why a general jibe at Spain (from one of the haters here) is staying to topic either? Good and bad in all countries..

Good to see you here jumping in too. Yes "hunting in packs" is an apt word.

Have you read what you have written, maybe then you could see yourself how others do.


According to you, the posters on here are not thinking of the terror and suffering the poor animals go through, they are against it because Spain has turned a corner and is coming out of recession, and they are bitter about it.


they don't like it that Zara and DEsigual are doing well, so snipe at Spain using the bulls as an example, according to you that is.

You really do have a problem.

You are one sick puppy.

Nope, I'm not the one getting personal, I'm refering to this post which (to me) is full of hate. It does not specify just one activity - bullfighting - it specifies ANYTHING Spain does.


Yes, does Spain ever do anything without getting money from Brussels to foot the bill

And the post you have given as an example, shows HATE in your opinion?

If so you really need to MAN UP.

Good to see looking at recent posts from, guess who ladies , that the usual standard of debate is being maintained.

The suggestion that Bull fighting is Spain is an EU sponsored or supported activity is just plain nonsense .
Apart from one poster ( not Stevie ) no one else who has contributed to this thread has posted anything but condemnation of bullfighting and similar activites.

Could some kind poster please tell me what he is referring to, and what this answer to my post is actually saying, I can't figure it out.

Twisted logic what..you don't reckon a certain person might have lit the charge or are you so biased against us you can't see the wood for the trees
