The former leader of the Balearics, Jose Ramon Bauza, seems intent on re-opening old wounds. Bauza, who was ejected from office two years ago, has been running for the leadership of the centre-right Partido Popular. He was back on his soap box calling for local schools to teach in three languages - English, Spanish and Catalan. In fact, he allegedly feels so strongly about the issue he gave his campaign speech in three languages. One of the reasons why Bauza lost the election was over his three-language teaching plan which led to one of the largest protest marches ever seen in Palma.
