Today the most popular news story on the BBC News Website is this one about Bullfighting. Some would argue that it wasn’t Bullfighting but rather a show with lots of guys teasing a bull to make it chase them round an arena but that’s a difference only the Spanish would care about.
So why is it the most popular story? Well I’d guess that without any shadow of a doubt, it’s because we British love it when the underdog wins. I’m sorry some people got injured but then if they hadn’t been there in the first place, they wouldn’t have got hurt. Anyway, well done to the bull I say. They might have killed it later that day but for a period he was the most famous bull in the world and a martyr to the cause of banning this cowardly sport.
