Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Don't ask me why people call Catalans Polacos [Poles], it's one of those Spanish things...

Perhaps for the same reason those ion Barcelona call the Arab slum the Barri Xine, trans. Chinatown.

Arab, Chinese, once you cease to be white Europeans, the rest all look the same. Bleck!

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg

The Barcelona slum has been called Barrio Chino before there were any Arab immigrants in it.
