It was a coincidence that could well have come from a script by Aaron Sorkin. Last Thursday, Pablo Iglesias had a visit to the Rivas-Vaciamadrid animal recovery center (Madrid) scheduled in his pre-campaign agenda. There he announced early in the morning that Unidos Podemos wants to withdraw all public aid to bullfighting if he governs in Madrid after the May 4 elections. Almost at the same time, the PP candidate, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, held a pre-election ceremony in the Las Ventas bullring. “We will dedicate the money to animal welfare,” said candidate Iglesias. “Bullfighting is culture, tradition, countryside and freedom,” said the Madrid president. Since last March 15 the former vice president announced your jump to top your party list, and Ayuso responded by changing his motto, both have become the great polarizers in Madrid in all those matters that the right has always defended culturally and that is not finding an answer, at least for the moment, in the other candidacies of the progressive bloc.
