Bus drivers and Catalan social democracy.

While his friends were sharing out public assets amongst themselves, Josep Jordi Pujol authored inspirational tracts calling on his fellow-Catalans to show the same sense of honour and justice that apparently inspires the Anglo-Saxons (his preface to the Catalan edition of Churchill’s The Second World War is a treat); bizarrely, he also apparently described himself as a Nordic-style social-democrat, leading Josep Pla to ask just how many Swedes there were in Catalonia.

Yesterday, on the public bus service back from the mountain, we were treated to a Eddie Murphy formula flick, The Haunted Mansion, in German with Danish subtitles. This probably says less about Catalan social democracy than about the state of war that exists between bus drivers and complex technology. No one seemed to mind.
