Iron Maiden - Eddie Flag Rocks Spanish Town Hall


Eddie the Head, the demoniacal mascot of the British heavy metal group Iron Maiden, has made his way into the debating chamber of a Spanish town hall. Eddie's cadaverous face appears regularly at council meetings in the town of Villava, in Navarre, as part of a war of political symbols between local parties.

Basque separatist councillors insist on hanging the Basque flag on their desks during debates, upsetting other politicians at the town hall. Most dislike the idea of the Navarre region being treated as part of the Basque country.

The Socialists have responded by hanging an Iron Maiden flag on their desks. The Socialist leader, José Luis Uriz, said: "The Iron Maiden flag means a lot to me. If I have to put up with their flag, they'll have to put up with Eddie's face."

The conservative Navarrese People's Union party has joined the protest. Its councillors now hang the flag of the local La Liga football club, Osasuna, from their desks.

I don´t think is that funny what he has done. He made a circus from a serious political protest. I´m an Iron Maiden fan but i don´t like what he did.

If you want a better place to live in spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave
Or you children of today are Children of the Grave."

It would be funny if these separatists wouldnt be terrorists who are legally earning money from all Spanish contributors. They all must be not only out of the SPANISH councils but in jail for many years. They take information of all the rest of politicians who are against their radical thoughts and give info to ETA in order to kill innocent people.
Thousands of people have died in Spain by guilt of these terrorist organizations.
