Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why would Zapatero (or the PSOE for that matter) sigue toreándolos (great word, by the way) on this issue?

We need a diary on the cowardly Law of Historical Memory. It's all about not rrocking the boat.

Any suggestions on how to translate 'torear' in this context?

I'll ask Etólogo to write a diary on it.

I've been meaning to write on the Law of Historical Memory and about the common graves of the Civil War.

But that is going to be some time, I've been meanining to write a lot, but I'm taking an econometrics course, and that seems to consume something like two full days to complete the assignments for.

"continue delaying tactics" was inspired, much better than my dictionary's:

(c) (fig) to keep at bay; to tease, draw on; to put off, keep guessing.

PS I look forward to that diary. I can't think of anything I feel more strongly about than "historical memory." The U.S., for example, wouldn't be in Iraq today if we weren't too sclerotic and brain-damaged to remember our debacle in Vietnam. And I've long thought that both Germany and South Africa should have permanent seats on the Security Council for the examples they've set the world on that score.
