Rule that male workers should wear ties and female staff ribbons is discriminatory, officials also say

Burger King workers in Barcelona will be able to lay down their razors after Catalan authorities decided the fast food giant’s prohibition on beards, moustaches and stubble violated employees’ constitutional rights.

The regional government’s labour inspection committee also determined that rules stipulating that male workers should wear ties and female workers ribbons amounted to sexual discrimination.

On shibboleths, secessionism in the EU, and education


As I wrote at the time: “The European Union is in effect subsidizing nationalism in Belgium and across the Continent. As the EU assumes more of the responsibilities of states — regulations, the economy, currency, possibly even defense — the cost of independence becomes lower.”

The EU seems to understand the phenomenon, which is why it takes such a hard line against regional separatism. There are 276 distinct regions within the EU, and if even a fraction of them go down, the secession route the EU is doomed, because if membership in the EU means dissolution of nation states, it is a political suicide pact for national governments.

Anyway, this story has brought back a lot of that resentment. It’s not personal, really, but that only makes it more sweeping. As I write in my book, higher education is like a training academy for the New Class. It is a giant shibboleth factory for a new caste and class system. Even if it were working properly, the meritocracy ... Show more...

On the Ciudadanos' directional crisis


It will be about the unity of Spain and it will be a contest between the Socialists on the one hand and a three-headed block to the right of centre in which Ciudadanos has lined up with the pp and Vox, a new ultra-conservative party.

The Economist has a strange comprehension of what conservatism actually is. Because Vox surely are not conservative, let alone ultra-conservative.

From nowhere, Vox took 11% of the vote in a regional election in Andalucía in December, helping to eject the Socialists from the regional administration they had run for almost 40 years. Mr Rivera’s vetoing of Mr Sánchez is thus a “defensive move” to stop Ciudadanos voters moving to Vox, says Mr Llaneras.

a real #democracy does not admit #politicalprisoners as it permits a range of ideas, political views and opinions, dissidents and freedom of speech. The fact that #Spain has people in jail for their ideas, nine Catalans wrongly accused of rebellion and sedition, shows that Spain is not a democratic country.
This morning, 1st February, the Catalan political prisoners are on their way to #Madrid. The countdown to the trial against democracy has begun. We accuse the Spanish State of violating people rights and freedoms.

Sanchez rants about Catalan separatists


"With Brexit we face a movement which goes against history and also against reason... Brexit and the Catalan separatist movement advance on parallel paths and with similar rhetoric.

Do you have any evidences? Because the separatist movement dwelled during the Rajoy government administration. it might have improved partially since then, but still, you will have to deliver some facts before you start ranting about the separatist movement which wants nothing but its freedom from the central government. There are, as far as I'm concerned, no stats that claim Catalunya could live autark and self-dependent, in the EU.

Analysts say Sanchez has dropped his conciliatory tone in response to the strong losses his Socialist party suffered earlier this month in regional elections in Andalusia, a southern Socialist stronghold, and the gains made there by conservative parties.

To insult people because they are fed up with you will only confirm them in their views. Trampling upon someone because he called you... Show more...
