‘Intransigence Of Madrid… That’s The Only Word To Use?’

France 24 is beyond belief in its biased presentation of news!

That bald berk Doug Herbert just dismissed the Spanish Government’s position on Catalonia with the words in my headline, above.

Many might agree with him that the Rajoy regime  is guilty of ‘intransigence‘ but many won’t.

Clearly, as an employee of a state-funded channel, he is totally out of order to tell us that it’s the ONLY word to use!

Many, maybe most, Spaniards, would say Madrid is behaving entirely correctly to defend the integrity of the kingdom.

I have been asked by a commenter why I haven’t made any comments myself on Catalonia. I will, soon enough. I’m no admirer of Rajoy, who grovels to Brussels rather than defend Spain from invasion by primitive savages…

The EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom, said she was “very concerned” about Spanish police firing rubber bullets to deter migrants.  She added that the actions of any EU state protecting its borders should be “proportionate”, and should respect fundamental rights and human dignity.

Invasion! So Brussels Stabs Spain in the Back! 

…and I have no time for his government’s hostility to self-determination in Gibraltar.

Rotten Rajoy, Eager To Grab At British Gibraltar

As it happens, however, I rather like Spain. So it’s important to think about the current crisis.

But I am a blogger. Herbert is allegedly there to make objective reports.

That’s the difference!
