Introducing the flamenco police…

It seems that the subnormal baboons who pass for constitutional lawyers in Spain’s regions have smuggled an article into the new Andalusian regional statute declaring knowledge of flamenco the exclusive right of the autonomous community. Although the declaration does have the potential advantage of ending embarrassing arguments about whether flamenco is gypsy or Moorish heritage, or merely an invention of Franquista tourism officials, it’s not yet clear how forbidden knowledge will be punished outside the borders of our favourite new national surreality. Or will Barcelona’s flamenco stars suffer the same fate at the hands of the Andalusocrats as Catalan champagne producers at those of the French and simply be forced through the courts to rename their product?
