So the despicable Spanish Government wants to make bullfighting a “cultural heritage” activity.

Giving something a respectable sounding name does nothing to change the fact it is to be reviled. Did you know the Spanish (etc) Inquisition is still around, but now called “The Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office”?

The Inquisition’s most enduring feature was its barbarity; the same is true of bullfighting – or torture for fun. It’s on the decline even in Spain – a country that seems to have a thing for enjoying animal suffering – and it does not belong in a nation that wants to be part of Western European.

A makeover of image does not alter the fact that bullfighting should be a matter of shame, time for it to be consigned to the history books.
