IT’S A NO FROM THE UK JUDGES UK Supreme Court decision ends voting hopes for thousands In a case that has been followed by many hundreds of thousands of British migrants living across the EU for months, the two Britons living abroad fighting the case have lost their Supreme Court battle over the right to vote in June's EU referendum. The UK's highest court upheld the recent decisions of both the High Court and Court of Appeal. Despite all the hopes to the contrary, UK citizens are officially not eligible to vote on 23 June if they have lived outside the UK for more than 15 years. The challenge was brought by World War Two veteran Harry Shindler, 94, who lives in Italy, and lawyer and Belgian resident Jacquelyn MacLennan, 54. Mr Shindler, who has lived in Italy for 35 years, and Ms MacLennan, from Inverness, who has lived in Belgium since 1987, argued that the 15-year rule acted as a penalty for them having exercised their rights to free movement, and was an infringement of their common law right to vote. But five Supreme Court justices - Lady Hale, Lord Mance, Lord Reed, Lord Sumption and Lord Hughes - unanimously rejected the lastditch legal challenge. More than two million British living across the world that are estimated to be affected by the decision, which marks the end of the legal battle for an expat's right to vote. There are no official figures to show the exact number of British migrants that have lived in Spain for more than 15 years out of the 283,000 that are registered on the Padron. Ms MacLennan, who had travelled by train from Brussels to be at the hearing said: "I thought our arguments were very compelling. I feel we have tried our best but, having got to this stage and been able to make our arguments before the Supreme Court, we have not been able to change this law, which is so manifestly unjust." Both Mr Shindler and Ms MacLennan wanted to vote to oppose Brexit. Mr Shindler, a UK passport holder, was in the World War Two landings at Anzio and still pays taxes on his pension to HM Revenue and Customs. He is worried that leaving the EU could seriously disrupt his way of life in Italy. Mr Shindler's lawyer said the test case was being watched by many other expats, who fear a vote to leave the EU will lead to them being deprived of EU citizenship and the rights that go with it. Downing Street welcomed the Supreme Court's ruling, saying the matter was discussed as part of the passage of the Referendum Bill and debated at length. "The result of that discussion in Parliament and the vote was that people who left the UK more than 15 years ago would not be eligible to vote. We welcome the fact

that the decision has been upheld," the prime minister's official spokesman said. The formal decision taken from the website of the UK Supreme Court is reproduced below: R (on the application of Shindler and another) (Appellants) v Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and another (Respondents) UKSC 2016/0105. On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales) The Supreme Court held an oral hearing of the application for permission to appeal, with the appeal to follow immediately if permission to appeal was granted. The appellants challenged the lawfulness under EU law of section 2 of the EU Referendum Act 2015 in respect of its exclusion from the EU Referendum franchise British citizens who, in exercise of their EU free movement rights, reside outside the UK and have been resident outside the UK for a period of more than 15 years. The appellants claim that their disenfranchisement constitutes a unjustified restriction of their EU law rights to move and reside within the territory of the Member

States and separately that the common law affords protection to their right to vote as British citizens and full members of the United Kingdom. The Supreme Court has refused permission to appeal and the Court of Appeal judgment will therefore stand. Giving the Court's decision, Lady Hale (Deputy President of the Supreme Court) said: "We should make it clear that the question is not whether this particular voting exclusion is justifiable as a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim. The question is instead, firstly, whether European Union law applies at all, as only if it does so is there any possibility of attacking an Act of Parliament; and secondly, if so, whether there is any interference with the right of free movement. Assuming for the sake of argument that European Union law does apply, we have decided that it is not arguable that there is an interference with right of free movement, for the reasons given by the Divisional Court and the Court of Appeal. We do have considerable sympathy for the situation in which the applicants find themselves and we understand that this is something which concerns them deeply. But we cannot discern a legal basis for challenging this statute. Accordingly the application for permission to appeal is refused." At a one of the recent events where the BBC were in attendance to discover the British point of view on the Referendum, The CoastRider spoke to one or two concerned residents the day after the decision from the UK Supreme Court was announced. Sylvie, a recently widowed pensioner who has lived in the area for 18 years said: “I can’t believe the Conservative government didn’t ensure that their commitment to scrap the fifteen year limit wasn’t part of the Referendum Bill in the first place! Most people I speak to want to Remain; and as it’s official government policy too, surely this was a chance to secure even more votes?” Another couple, Helen and Jack also retired and into their 21st year on the Costa Blanca raised their concerns but coming from a different angle; one which is rarely expressed among the current discussions on social media or in the news. Jack said: “If we had known all those years ago that our status as British people living in Spain might be affected, we may have reconsidered selling up in the UK entirely and investing a significant amount of our money into our home and life in Spain!” His wife was nodding was a resigned look on her face. “I know it was a risk,” he continued, “but we were only taking advantage of the law as millions of others did. If that law is likely to be changed, I feel that we should have a say in that. It’s disgusting!”

THE BEEB WERE BACK IN TOWN!

There are still more questions than answers... Not for the first time since the announcement was made at the end of February, members of the UK based media have made their way to various parts of Spain to find out what British immigrants think of the forthcoming EU Referendum. Renowned journalist Matthew Engel from The Guardian was in the Orhuela Costa a couple of weeks ago addressing a group of concerned residents, and the BBC Breakfast show had a live link up with Gavin Lee to the same area last Thursday morning. Cafe J’s Bar in Urbanisation La Marina were the latest venue to be featured when a crew from BBC Look North

were on filming duty on a beautiful, sun-drenched Wednesday evening. It was all part of a package to be featured as part of the regional programme where opinions of those that had their roots in Yorkshire have made the permanent move to live in Spain. Barry & Margaret from Leeds, Mick & Michelle from Halifax and finally Mick & Desna from Sheffield shared their thoughts and concerns as to how they believed a potential Brexit would affect their day to day lives in this area of the Costa Blanca. Needless to say, might their future status in Spain and would they still continue to enjoy one of the benefits of free movement within the EU – free treatment using the Spanish NHS – continue as the status quo? In the case of the couple from Leeds, they’ve been living in La Marina for more than 15 years so even though they have their views, like many others across the EU they’re unable to express them at the ballot box. The series of informal chats preceded a specially re-arranged Quiz Night hosted by popular and veteran quizmaster Darren James who is now into his 25th year of presenting such

evenings. Darren told The Coastrider: “It was a great experience seeing how a filming schedule takes place and reading out questions with a cameraman inches from your face! The fifty quizgoers were mainly on their best behaviour!” Local quiz nights were the background to both of the filmed reports and those that took part were given the correct answers to all the questions asked on the evening. IF there is a vote to Leave the EU – just 23 days to the 23rd - an overwhelming number of the British migrants living in Spain are going to have to wait a little longer for the answers to some of the most important questions on their mind. BBC Look North plan to show the report from Urbanisation La Marina as part of the Wednesday edition shown at 7.30pm on 8th June on BBC1.

PM TELLS SUGAR “YOU’RE HIRED!”

In a move which has been seen as the final snub to the Labour Party that he previously supported, and was a member of from 1997 until last year, Lord Sugar has been appointed enterprise tsar as part of the Conservative government’s drive to get more young people to consider starting their own business or undertaking an apprenticeship. He had a similar role with New Labour from 2009 under the then Prime Minister Gordon Brown. In a very public move within days of the 2015 General Election, Lord Sugar announced he was leaving the Labour Party with the following statement: “In the past year I found myself losing confidence in the party due to their negative business policies and general anti-enterprise concepts they were considering if they were elected. I expressed this to the most senior figures in the party several times. I signed on to New Labour in 1997 but more recently, particularly in relation to business, I sensed a policy shift moving back towards what Old Labour stood for. By the start of this year I had made my decision to resign from the party whatever the outcome of the general election.” As well as championing enterprise and apprenticeships among young people, he will encourage businesses to take on apprentices themselves. Lord Sugar is one of the best known names

in British business, and having built up two successful computer firms – Amstrad and Viglen – after leaving school at 16, he is ideally placed to champion the cause of both entrepreneurship and apprenticeships. He will be undertaking a series of roadshow events across England, speaking to local school leavers and businesses. He will be provided with support by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Department for Education. Lord Sugar said: “I’m delighted to be taking on this challenge. I built successful businesses with the support of hundreds of talented young people who learned their skills on the job – exactly the kinds of skills you learn in

an apprenticeship. But not enough of our young people know about apprenticeships and what they offer, and too few feel empowered to set up their own business.” He continued: “I’ll be travelling the length and breadth of this country to tell young people why apprenticeships are a great way for them to build their skills – and talking about the opportunities for starting their own business, hopefully instilling some entrepreneurial spirit.” Following the original announcement from No10 Downing Street, Skills Minister Nick Boles expressed his delight at the appointment: “We want every young person in Britain to get on and build a great life for themselves, whether it’s by starting an apprenticeship or setting up their own business. Lord Sugar has huge credibility among young people and I am delighted that he has agreed to help the government bang the drum for apprenticeships and enterprise.” Lord Sugar’s role will contribute to the government’s drive to deliver three million apprenticeship starts in England by 2020. In last year’s summer budget, the government announced the introduction of the apprenticeship levy to increase the quality and quantity of apprenticeships in England. An employer-led Institute for Apprenticeships will begin work next year and will have a mandate to regulate the quality of apprenticeships.

TORNADO - THE NEW “TERROR” MITICA RIDE

Did you hear screams coming from the Benidorm area yesterday? They probably came from people trying the new attraction that was open to the public for the first time at the Terra Mitica theme park. Now into its 16th year, Terra Mitica is always looking to bring new rides and experiences to its customers and for the new season they are proud to present “Tornado”! Standing at an imposing 80 metres high (262 feet) flying chairs spin around a tower endlessly rotating at different heights and speeds. Tornado is situated in the ancient Rome area and takes its inspiration from the gladiatorial battles which took place in the

arena below. Amongst the weapons used by the armed men doing battle to the death were sling shots which were spun around at high speed above the slinger's head – very much like the chairs on the Tornado. More than 6 metres of foundation and 600 cubic meters of reinforced concrete have been used to build the attraction which is covered by a dome weighing more than 4,500 kg. In addition to the "Tornado" Terra Mitica will also add another important development with the opening of its first theme hotel, the Grand Luxor Hotel, located in the area of Egypt with 300 rooms.

DISHARMONY ON THE SEAS

The world’s biggest cruise ship is a “construction site”, its first customers have claimed. The £800 million Harmony of the Seas left Southampton for Rotterdam on a four-night trip on May 22 but customers have protested about ongoing work and closed attractions. Annoyed customers have tweeted pictures of overflowing urinals, uncovered drains and muddy carpets. Retired David Mitchell, 73, who paid around £1,000 for his four-night stay, told The Telegraph: “I am an ex-hotel manager so I really notice this kind of thing. It was totally chaotic – they were overwhelmed and underprepared. There were workmen crawling all over and lots of the features and amenities were closed. There were queues at the bars, queues to get into the dining room and there were so many people lining up at guest services to complain they had to put up barriers.” Another said: “Urinals blocked and overflowing on our cruise to Rotterdam. Ship NOT ready but took our money”. Around 6,000 passengers joined the ship’s first outing. It

has 20 restaurants, 23 swimming pools and took more than twoand-a-half-years to construct. A spokesperson for the Royal Caribbean Cruises added: "We can assure our passengers that the incidents reported have been isolated incidents, most occurring more than three days ago, and they were all immediately dealt with. We are taking every measure to guarantee passengers that their time aboard Harmony of the Seas is the exceptional experience that was billed."

Harmony of the Seas’ official maiden voyage will sailed from Southampton to its summer base of Barcelona where it arrived on Sunday.

LEADERSHIP, EXPERIENCE & COMMITMENT

THE NEW PIPN!

It’s almost one year to the day since the Partido Independiente Por las Nacionalidades (PIPN) doubled their council seats in the municipality of San Fulgencio. The time has come to look ahead to the next local elections in May 2019; three years is not a long time in politics! There have been many changes in the PIPN in the past twelve months, especially with the new additions to the team and with the revived commitment and vision for the locality as the President of PIPN, Samantha Hull explained: “The Party has drawn a red line under

what has gone before. This is a fresh start with a new team around me whom everyone will get to know very soon. I’m very excited about the future of the PIPN especially as we have the support of some very experienced and highly respected and principled members of the local Spanish community. I also want people to get away from the perception that we are “the Brit Party.” Samantha continued: “The job of an opposition party anywhere is not only to always hold the Council to account when they are able to do so, but to continually develop policies

and initiatives whilst in opposition, unlike the national parties, in consultation with residents, local business and tourists, and to develop a plan for the future. We have to show that the PIPN are not just an effective opposition party but a Council in waiting. We need to reinforce the message that we are the only truly independent party in San Fulgencio who do not have to answer to Alicante, Valencia or Madrid. We only have the best interests of the residents at heart” The PIPN are in the process of arranging regular surgery meetings in a number of venues in the municipality of San Fulgencio and the Urbanisations over the coming months. These will give the opportunity to residents of San Fulgencio and the Urbanisations to discuss their concerns with a Councillor and get an immediate and helpful response to their questions. If necessary the PIPN Councillor can legally voice any concerns or questions to the current council at a plenary Council meeting. Nobody else can do this. Within these regular surgery meetings there will be other members of the PIPN from

different nationalities there to help promote the benefits of registration on the local Padron and on the electoral role, as well as a few fund raising events including a very exciting evening to look forward to in the very near

future. Please keep a look out in the area for details and also on the dedicated Facebook page. Just type in PIPN and you’ll see the link to the page. Like the page, and send a message for details on how to join the party

CONNECTING PEOPLE

Facebook and Microsoft have announced a partnership to lay the highest-capacity subsea internet cable to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean, starting with hubs connecting Northern Virginia to Bilbao, Spain. The cable, called "MAREA" after the Spanish word for "tide," will be capable of 160 terabits per second of bandwidth and will stretch more than 4,100 miles of ocean in a submarine cable system. The two companies have hired Telxius, the infrastructure company owned by global communications giant Telefónica, to manage MAREA and expand network hubs from Europe to Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Construction is slated to begin in August of this year with a goal of October 2017 to complete the cable. "In order to better serve our customers and provide the type of reliable and low-

latency connectivity they deserve, we are continuing to invest in new and innovative ways to continuously upgrade both the Microsoft Cloud and the global internet infrastructure," Frank Rey, Microsoft's director of global network acquisition, said in a statement. "This marks an important new step in building the next generation infrastructure of the internet." Even with Telxius onboard, this new operation marks a turning point for tech companies, which have in the past joined telecom consortiums that already operate undersea cables rather than financing new cables outright. The ultimate goal here is to help both Facebook and Microsoft move information around the world — to their vast and expanding networks of data centres — at higher speeds using more reliable equipment.

MORE CHANGES @ TWITTER Twitter has announced that it will make a series of changes to how users compose their tweets and while there will still technically be a 140 character limit, the service will be more flexible. The micro-blogging company has notified developers ahead of rolling out the changes publicly “over the coming months”. Dealers should look out for changes which include: ● Replies: When replying to a tweet, @names will no longer count toward the 140-character count ● Media attachments: When you add attachments like photos, gifs, videos, polls, or quote tweets, that media will no longer count as characters within the tweet ● Retweet and quote tweet yourself: Twitter will allow users to retweet their own tweets, so users can easily retweet or quote tweet themselves when sharing content again ● The end of .@: new tweets that begin with a username will reach all followers (that means users no longer having to use the ”.@” convention, which

people currently use to broadcast tweets broadly.) If a user wants a reply to be seen by all their followers, they will be able to Retweet it to signal that they intend for it to be viewed more broadly. Twitter’s official blog said: “In addition to the changes outlined, we have plans to help you get even more from your tweets. We’re exploring ways to make existing uses easier and enable new ones, all without compromising the unique brevity and speed that make Twitter the best place for live commentary, connections, and conversations.”

ERNIE BONDS PRIZE MONEY CUT

The number of Premium Bond prizes is to be reduced, and National Savings and Investments (NS&I) is also cutting savings rates on a number of its products. From next week, the chances of winning a Premium Bond prize will change from 26,000/1, to 30,000/1. The savings rates on Direct Isas, Direct Saver, Income Bonds and the Investment Account will also be cut. NS&I said the new rates would still be competitive with other savings rates in the market. Direct Isa rates were previously reduced in November 2015.

Danny Cox of Hargreaves Lansdown said: “This is another serious blow for savers who like the absolute security offered by NS&I, but now face even lower returns on their cash.” However, NS&I defended its decision to cut savings rates, which follows a continuing reduction in returns to savers from banks and building societies over the past seven years. “The majority of the new interest rates on offer are either at, or above, average market rates,” said Jane Platt, the chief executive of NS&I. “We believe they present a fair offer to customers, who will also continue to benefit from our 100% HM Treasury guarantee on all holdings, as well as tax-free prizes for Premium Bonds.” Premium Bond Changes Current rate Prize fund 1.35% tax free Winning odds 26,000/1 Total value of prizes £67.5m Number of prizes 2.3m No. of £1m prizes (per month)2 No. of £100,000 prizes 5 No. of £50,000 prizes 12 No. of £25,000 prizes 22

NS&I has been told by the Treasury to raise less money for the government in 2016/17 than it did in the current tax year. One reason is that it is currently cheaper for the Treasury to raise money by issuing government bonds than through NS&I. HISTORY Premium Bonds were introduced just over 60 years ago by Harold Macmillan in his budget of 17 April 1956, to control inflation and encourage people to save after the war. On 1 November 1956, in front of the Royal Exchange in the City of London, the Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Sir Cuthbert Ackroyd, bought the first bond from the Postmaster-General, Dr Charles Hill, for £1. Premium Bonds were based in St Anne’s-on-Sea until they moved to Blackpool in the late 1990s. The first “ERNIE” was built at the Post Office Research Station by a team led by Sidney Broadhurst. The designers were Tommy Flowers and Harry Fensom and it is based on Colossus, the world's first digital computer. It was introduced in 1957, and generated bond numbers based on the signal noise created by neon tubes. ERNIE 1 has been on display in the Science Museum since 2008. ERNIE is an acronym for "Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment".

GHOST STATIONS, NOT TRAINS

The AVE high-speed railway is no doubt a proud addition to the infrastructure of Spain, but concerns have been raised as to passenger use at some of the rural stations. For example, the station at Villena, one of three stops on the route between Madrid and Alicante, opened in 2013 at a cost of €11.5 million, is among the eight least-used of the system. In fact, one in four of the total of 31 AVE stations throughout the country is used by less than 100 passengers a day, The most recent figures for Villena, for 2014, show that 25,850 people (just 70 per day on average) bought tickets at the station in 2014. Renfe, the country’s state-owned rail operator, says that for the same year, 35,129,000 passengers in

total used the AVE system. But as the company registers passengers twice, for the outward and return journey, the real number of passengers was 17,564,500. At Puente Genil, in Seville, its 250space car park has no problem dealing with the 69 passengers that use it each day. Huesca (99), Guadalajara (92), Villanueva de Córdoba (23), Segovia (14), and Tardienta (1) are the remaining eight stations used by less than 100 people a day. Despite attracting growing numbers of passengers (up 9% between 2014 and 2015, says Renfe) the AVE is still underused. In March, some 50 million people took the train, of whom only 3.4 percent, or 1.7 million, travelled on AVE routes.

A VERY HOT INDIAN

As the summer temperatures begin to rise on the Costa Blanca with 32.5C recorded in Elche last weekend already, spare a thought for India where they have suffered extreme heat in the run-up to the Indian monsoon season with life-threatening temperatures. The Wall Street Journal reported that, “sweltering temperatures lasting for weeks have led to at least 160 deaths,” as India’s hottest day on record was recorded with an incredible 51C busting the mercury in Rajasthan. The regions of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat also experiencing the unusually high temperatures. Much of South Asia has recorded temperatures between 3 to 5 degrees above the average, with the worst of the heat being felt across Pakistan and northwest India, with daytime highs

around the 50C mark as the premonsoon heat returns to the region. The new record was set in Phalodi in the desert state of Rajasthan with a maximum temperature of 51C on the afternoon of 19th May. That beats the previous record of 50.6 set 60 years earlier in the northern town of Alwar. Churu in West Rajasthan had a high of 50.6C on the same day. The weather was even hotter for some across the border in Pakistan. Jacobabad had a top temperature of 51.5C, while Bahawalnagar and Sibi both reach an even 50C. May and June tend to be the region's hottest months as temperatures climb ahead of the south-westerly monsoon. Maximum temperatures often pass 40C but 50 degrees is exceptional. The rains are not expected across southern India before the start of June.

ADIOS JOSE...EVEN MARIA LOSES TO SPOT!

Maria del Carmen and Maria are the two most common names for women in Spain. In fact, in the case of Maria del Carmen, 683,000 women have that name. The 20 top names on the list follow Spain’s Catholic tradition with Maria being part of nine of the names and four others being biblical names. As far as men’s names are concerned, the most common is Antonio and whilst they still remain at the top of first names on the census across the country, others which were practically unheard of 10 years ago are now becoming par for the course. As for new born children in Spain between 2010 and 2014 and according to recent figures issued by the Spanish Institute

for Statistics (INE), the most popular for girls are: 1. LUCIA, 2. MARIA, 3. PAULA, 4. DANIELLA and 5. SARA. For the boys, it’s: 1. DANIEL, 2. HUGO, 3. ALEJANDRO, 4. PABLO and 5. ALVARO. There was a time when Spanish families would never

dream of christening their offspring with the weird and wonderful first names as has been an increasing trend in the UK. Latest data suggests that is slowly changing. Baby boys are being called Neymar, after the Barcelona FC star player from Brazil and fellow footballer and Spanish goalkeeper Iker. Girls called Arya, after Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, are not unheard of nowadays. It’s not just the world of sport and fantasy TV that has influenced the choice of many new parents. 107 Spanish girls on the census are named Rihanna, after the Barbados-born R&B singer. The increase in immigration, in particular the Muslim population, is also reflected in

the most common names in Spain. In the case of the male population, names like Mohamed or Mohammed are found in the top 30 most common names. The most common surnames among foreign residents in Spain remain mainly Latino: Rodriguez, Garcia, Gonzalez, Lopez, Sanchez and Perez, however names such as Chen and Singh are now beginning to appear among the top names on the list. Seeing the surname Garcia on an ID is not unusual. In fact, Garcia is the most common surname in Spain (and has been for many years), followed by Gonzalez and Rodriguez. Having García as a surname is nothing special it would seem, as more than a million and half people have it as first name, another million and a half as a second surname and to top that off, just over 82,000 people have it as both names, according to data from the last census, dated January 2010. Plus, if this is preceded with the already listed popular names

Pets in Spain Molly is a Poodle cross and was born on the 30th March. She has started her vaccinations and will be medium size when fully grown. Molly is great with other dogs and cats. Call: 645 469 253 www.petsinspain.com info@petsinspain.com

of Maria del Carmen or Antonio, this makes up the most frequently found names in this country. In Spain, people have two surnames (apellidos) – the first being the father’s surname and the second from the mother and on occasions they are the same so someone could have a full name, for example, of Jose Maria Gonzales Gonzales. Over the years, there have been some amusing real combinations of surnames that resulted in a competition being held on Spanish TV during the 1990s inviting people to send in their favourite names which had to be backed up with proof as to their existence. Those on the final list included Rosa Cortada Del Rosal (Rose cut from the Rosebush), Juan Carlos Rey Del España (Juan Carlos King of Spain), and the winner Dolores Fuertes De La Barriga (Strong Stomach Pains). There was also a recent Basque Region politician called Jaime Mayor Oreja (James Big Ear)...judge for yourselves...and possibly the best of the newer and real ‘strange’ names belongs to Francisco Jose Folla Doblado (Francisco Jose F**** Bent Double)!!

ONE PERSON – ONE ROOM

Anyone that has had the misfortune to have to stay in hospital in Spain, will agree that one of the benefits is being able to enjoy the comfort of a single room with all the luxury and privacy that brings. However, that isn’t the case, at the moment in the Orihuela (Vega Baja) Hospital. The Partido Popular (PP) party in the local area responsible for the hospital will be proposing a motion for discussion at a

future Council meeting to demand that that a single room policy be adopted by the hospital. The co-ordinator of the PP in the Vega Baja, Adrian Ballester, told the Spanish press that, “the PP also reflects the feelings of the people of the region” who are already supporting a platform of “One person per room” The motion also urges the Department of Health "to provide the necessary space, to purchase medical equipment and to provide the necessary personnel to the Vega Baja Hospital so it is treated in the same way as the rest of the region." Sñr Ballester went on to say that “the inhabitants of Orihuela should have the same kind of facilities as other parts of the area. We defend the region, their needs and the infrastructure.”

YES, WE ALREADY KNOW...

A Spanish woman has been fined €100 for carrying a handbag saying All Cats are Beautiful because police thought the initials meant 'All Cops are Ba***rds'. Ms Belen Lobeto was quietly walking back to her home in Madrid when during the Copa del Rey final between Barcelona and Seville when she was stopped by riot squad officials. Her bag (pictured) containing the initials ACAB had been allegedly mistaken as being the accepted derogatory term used against police. Ms Lobeto said: 'I tried to explain that it was just a picture of a kitten but they wouldn't listen so I had to shut up for fear of being arrested.' The fine was nevertheless still handed out even though the real intended phrase of “All Cats Are Beautiful” was clearly embroidered under the picture. The offender told the Spanish press that the violation order was issued under Spain's controversial gagging law and could lead to a fine of between €100 and €600, but she says she has no intention to pay and will instead choose to appear

before a judge so he can decide whether to proceed or drop the case. Police sources said that although the bag did show the face of a cat, 'everyone knows what the initials ACAB really stand for.' However, it is not the first time football supporters have been fined due to their clothing. Back in 2011, three Ajax fans were fined for wearing shirts with the numbers 1312 on them. Police in Amsterdam believed the numbers corresponded to the letters ACAB.

Back Stage with Mister X Who are you and what do you do? I'm Mister X - a professional magician, who does general magic, illusion manipulations and illusion with large equipment. How did you start in the business? I started as a circus variety artist in variety shows venues around Bulgaria, since I graduated at the Unique Circus School in Moscow, Russia. What would you be doing if you were not an entertainer? For me the stage is everything and I love to perform on it! I love my job as a magician! Anyway, I'm also a civil engineer, so I do have an alternative job. As an entertainer who has been your biggest influence? I was mostly influenced by the son of the legendary Bulgarian magician Miti, called Julian. I got attracted by his tricks and illusions and that determined my future life.

Do you ever get nervous or have you suffered stage fright? When I started, I was concerned about my first appearances on stage about how the audience would react, and worried that if someone in the audience is illusionist with more experience than me and what would he say. But with the time I was seeing the audience's reaction and become more confident. I love the stage and the audience and have no worries now whatsoever. Even when I run a new magic trick I'm not worried as I know I have practised it many times and it has been refined in order to make sure that everything would run smooth. What was your best moment? For me, the best time is after every applause of the audience. This is the criteria for each artist. What has been your worst moment? At the first Balkan Festival of Magicians I had to open the festival. When I got announced, I appeared on stage and the wrong music was playing which threw me for a moment, I looked at the show director and I nodded to the audience, and invited my assistant on stage. My correct music started with my performance. The audience didn’t notice that. Later on I’ve found that the director had had informed the sound master about the problem which was solved within seconds. What’s the best piece of advice you have received or would give someone starting out in the business? I've received a lot of advice from colleagues and show directors. I'd share them with younger colleagues – the magic tricks have to be performed in front of an audience only after one is 100% sure and confident that the performance would run smooth. The hands have to do the magic trick instinctively, otherwise the audience would notice that the magician is not prepared.

Any little anecdotes or interesting stories? A. I was working in a variety complex with a live orchestra, playing with real cigarettes and throwing them on the floor. One cigarette’s spark fell on the magical towels on my table, so they got on fire. When I turned around I saw the guitarist trying to extinguish the burning towels stamping them with his feet. Mister X is available for table magic, magic and illusion shows as well as grand scale illusions. Take a look at his web page on ArtistsDirect – Spain.com and phone to book him direct.

AFTER HOURS AT The Inn @ The Green After Hours with Chris & Nicky at The Inn @ The Green, Entrenaranjos Contact them on TEL: 634 887 889 Tell us about yourselves We both decided to move to Spain last year when Chris retired from the fire brigade after doing 30 years of service. Nicky had worked the past 12 years as a mental health worker in Bristol and previously to that in maternity in theatres and in the delivery suite. “Our children have grown up and fled the nest and we saw this as an opportunity to move to the sun.....”

What made you open a bar? Even though Chris has retired and we had decided to live in the sun neither of us are ready to give up work yet so we decided we would like to run a bar. We looked at several bars to buy and choose the Inn @ the Green because it was already a well-established business on a friendly urbanisation. What was the inspiration for the name? The Inn at the Green has been running for the past 7 years, and the name is really well known on the estate so we decided not to change the name.... This bar was the first bar to open on this urbanization and it is a well-established watering hole with locals and tourists alike – we try to have something different going on every day. Mondays, dominos, Tuesdays quiz, Wednesdays Bingo, Fun and games night on Thursdays with a variety of live entertainment

over the weekends. Who does the cooking? We do it between us at the moment and try to stick to no nonsense pub grub, all the old favourites. We have a very popular pick n’ mix breakfast menu where you build your own breakfast rather than buy a set breakfast which is available 10.30-12.30. We offer bar snacks and more traditional meals. What’s your favourite dish on the menu? Nicky’s absolute favourite is butchers ham egg and chips. What is your favourite day of the week? Our favourite day of the week has got to be on a Thursday when Stevie Spit does our quiz and games night – We have never laughed so much. We also enjoy the weekends with some fantastic artists working for us and entertaining our customers.

Any interesting tales? We have so many funny and interesting moments but one particular one that tickled us both is when one night, a long line of people were queuing for a photo after the Stevie Spit show, and one particular chap, being a bit tipsy, stepped up demanding to know if Stevie was really a woman or a man and then grabbing his fake boobs only to be very disappointed lol. The whole place erupted with laughter.

The Health Benefits of Fruit

While you probably know that fruit is good for you, you may not realize just how farreaching the health benefits of fruit can be. Fruit and vegetables are the ultimate body protection and performance foods. If you want to live a long and healthy life, upping your fruit and vegetable intake could be one of the best changes you make to your diet. Fruits are rich in: • Vitamins — they’re particularly good for vitamin C and folic acid. • Minerals — many are a great source of potassium. • Other phytochemicals, such as the antioxidants that defend our bodies’ cells from damage. • Natural sugars • Water • Fibre Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables has been shown to: • Reduce cancer risk. • Reduce heart disease and stroke risk. • Reduce cataract risk. • Reduce Alzheimer’s risk. • Reduce type-2 diabetes risk. • Help prevent birth defects. • Help keep your digestive system working smoothly. • Help you to maintain a healthy weight.

• Help you to lose weight. • Improve your lung function. • Possibly slow down skin ageing. It’s true that all fruits are good for you, but there are a few which offer some specific and quite impactful health benefits. You may already know about some of them, but others may surprise you! Let’s take a look at these special fruits offering the most bang for your buck: 1. Cranberries Cranberries do more than help prevent urinary tract infections. There is evidence that the anti-bacterial chemicals they contain can help prevent gum disease and tooth decay and their antioxidant action may help to raise levels of HDL, the

good cholesterol that can help maintain healthy arteries. Cranberries are rich in flavonoids. These phytonutrients have been shown to inhibit certain types of cancer. Polyphenolic compounds found in cranberry may help to protect against neurodegenerative diseases, and the memory and coordination losses often associated with aging. 2. Raspberries Raspberries come in various colours. Although primarily red, raspberries may also be black, purple and even golden. There are over 200 known species of raspberries, and interestingly enough, raspberries form part of the rose or Rosaceae family, together with strawberries. There are two types of raspberries that are commercially available, the wild type summer bearing and the double or ever bearing plants. Raspberries are rich in vitamin C and may contain potential anti-cancer agents. Raspberries have also been linked to a positive promotion in cardiovascular health and cancer. A study published in the Journal of BioFactors reported that raspberries contain almost 50% more antioxidant activity than strawberries. These antioxidants have been shown to fight off cancer cells. 3. Apples Apples are not bursting with vitamins and minerals like other fruits, though they do provide a bit of vitamin C and potassium. However, without a doubt apples are amazing for controlling blood sugar, says Dr. Barry Sears in his book The Top

100 Zone Foods. “Apples are a good source of soluble fibre, especially pectin, which helps control insulin levels by slowing the release of sugar into your bloodstream. Pectin also helps reduce cholesterol levels by lowering insulin secretion.” We now also know that apples fairly shine in antioxidant phytochemicals; the principal ones identified so far are phenolics and the flavonoid quercetin. Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant, a natural anti-histamine, and antiinflammatory. Studies have shown that quercetin reduces cancer risk of prostate, ovary, breast, gastric and colon cells. Don’t peel your apples, as quercetin is found only in the skin. 4. Pineapple Pineapple, Ananas comosus, belongs to the Bromeliaceae family, from which one of its most important health promoting compounds, the enzyme bromelain, was named. Bromelain is a mix of enzymes which has been shown to lessen inflammation and reduce certain types of swelling. Pineapple is also an excellent source of the trace mineral

manganese, which is an essential cofactor in a number of enzymes important in energy production and antioxidant defences. In addition to manganese, pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin B1, copper, dietary fibre and vitamin B6. Among the many benefits of vitamin B1 is its ability to increase blood circulation and provide a greater supply of oxygen to the blood cells. In addition, vitamin B1 is known to help with the proper metabolism of carbohydrates, making it vital to good digestion. 5. Blueberries Scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Center have found that blueberries rank No. 1 in antioxidant benefits, compared to 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help neutralize harmful “free radicals” that can lead to cancer and other agerelated diseases. The total antioxidant capacity of blueberries (24 mcgmol Trolox equivalents per gram) is twice that of spinach and three times that of oranges. This extraordinary fruit is also rich in pectin. Blueberries are available yearround in many forms including fresh, frozen, juice, puree, concentrate, and dried. Fresh blueberries are higher in vitamins A and C than frozen or canned. A cup of blueberries provides nearly a third of the RDA for vitamin C. It would appear that most of the vitamin C is lost as a result of freezing and canning.

What is Ginger Root? Ginger is one of the oldest spices, originating in tropical Southeast Asia. It has been cultivated for more than 3,000 years. The cuisines of Asia are perfumed with its essence, as are the sweetbreads of northern Europe. An ancient food with medicinal properties, ginger contains gingerol, shogaol and zingiberene, which have antioxidant properties. It is a good source of dietary fibre, vitamin E, vitamin B6, iron, magnesium, potassium and selenium, and a very good source of manganese. Ginger root is very low in cholesterol and sodium. Ginger has been revered for thousands of years as a universal medicine, especially in areas such as China and India. It has been said to help provide relief for conditions as diverse as asthma, painful menstruation, migraines, indigestion and infection and is said to promote vitality and longevity. Ginger root is full of natural antiinflammatories, and anything that helps keep levels of inflammation low is good for your heart. Ginger is also good for headaches. Chew a piece for half an hour to alleviate the pain, advises herbalist Rosita Arvigo. Now new research by scientists in America suggests that symptoms of knee osteoarthritis can be significantly reduced with concentrated extracts of ginger. By comparing ginger with a placebo in a randomised control, they found that knee pain on standing and

after walking were all reduced by ginger and that the amount of painkillers needed was also reduced. Ginger is also good for the stomach. Japanese researchers found that the gingerols in ginger block the vomit reflex. “Ginger will help settle your stomach and calm nausea after drinking, or anytime you have an upset stomach,� says dietician Leslie Bonci of Pittsburgh University. However, high doses (6 grams or more) may damage the stomach lining and could eventually lead to ulcers. Allergic skin reactions are also possible, but in recommended doses, ginger causes no side effects. Massive doses of ginger can depress the nervous system and cause heart irregularities. If you suspect an overdose, seek medical attention immediately.

Spanish-style prawns Pan-fried hake, white bean & chorizo broth with fennel Ingredients • 2 cloves of garlic • 1 bulb of fennel • a few sprigs of fresh flat-leaf parsley • olive oil • 750 g ripe cherry tomatoes • 1 large wineglass of white wine • 10 large raw prawns, from sustainable sources • 1 lemon

Method Peel and finely slice the garlic, then trim and slice the fennel. Pick and roughly chop the parsley leaves, and roughly chop the stalks. Heat a good lug of oil in a saucepan and gently fry the garlic till golden. Add the fennel and parsley stalks, then reduce the heat to low and sauté for 10 minutes, or until softened but not coloured. Halve half the tomatoes, leaving the rest whole, then add to the pan with the wine. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thickened. If it’s too thick, add a splash of water. Peel the prawns, leaving the tails on, then butterfly them by cutting along the back of each one and opening them out like a book. Add to the pan and cook for 4 minutes, or until they’re cooked and pink. Stir through parsley leaves and season. Serve with lemon wedges and nice bread.

This gutsy soup has a Spanish tone and works with other white fish like cod - layer the flavour up with garlic and paprika Ingredients • 450g dried white beans, such as haricot or cannellini, soaked overnight in water • 4 garlic clove, 3 left whole, 1 crushed • 2 bay leaf • 1 tsp thyme leaf, chopped, plus extra to serve • 6 tbsp olive oil • 100g good white bread, diced • 100g cooking chorizo, skinned and chopped into small chunks • 1 onion, sliced • 3 tsp paprika • 1l chicken stock • small handful parsley, chopped • 6 hake fillets, about 125g/5oz each Method 1. Drain the beans, then tip into a large pan with 2 litres of water. Simmer with the whole garlic cloves, bay leaves and thyme for 30 mins or until cooked and tender. Remove from the heat and set aside. 2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Fry the bread with the remaining garlic clove. When golden and crisp, scoop out and drain on kitchen paper.

Add the chorizo to the pan, fry until crisp, tip out and keep warm with the bread. 3. Add another 2 tbsp oil and the onion to the pan, and cook for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the paprika. Drain the beans and add to the onions with the chicken stock and 2 tsp salt. Cook for 5-10 mins. Stir through the parsley and keep warm. 4. Season the hake and heat the remaining 2 tbsp oil in the frying pan. Put the hake, skin-side down, in the pan and cook for 3-5 mins over a medium high heat to crisp up the skin. Flip the fish over and cook for a further 3-5 mins until cooked through. Spoon the white bean mix into bowls, place the hake on top and finish with the fried bread, chorizo and a little more thyme.

Spanish meatballs with clams, chorizo & squid Smoky pork meatballs go perfectly with the salty seafood. Enjoy with a large hunk of bread Ingredients • 25g butter • 3 small shallot, diced • 1 heaped tsp smoked Spanish paprika (we used the sweet, or dulce type) • 3 garlic clove, 2 crushed and 1 sliced • 2 tbsp dry sherry • 50g fresh breadcrumbs • 300g pork mince • 1 egg yolk • 50ml olive oil, for frying • 300g chorizo, either mini whole ones or a large sausage, cut into bite-size pieces

• 300g cleaned squid, cut into rings • 100ml white wine • 300g chopped and squashed tomatoes (squeeze to a pulp using your fingers) • 400g clams • handful flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped • extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling Method 1. Melt the butter in a heavy-based casserole, then soften the shallots for 5 mins. Add the paprika and crushed garlic and cook for 1 min until the paprika becomes fragrant. Splash in the Sherry, then pour the whole lot into a bowl with the breadcrumbs. Season and cool. 2. Add the pork mince and the egg yolk to the bowl, then beat well. Shape into 18 small meatballs. Wipe the pan,

put on a medium-high heat, then add the oil. Fry the meatballs for 5 mins, just to colour, then lift onto a plate, but keep the oil in the pan. Sizzle the chorizo with the sliced garlic. Add the squid and fry to give a little colour. Now tip in the white wine and bring to the boil, scraping the bottom. Stir in the pulped tomatoes, bring to the boil, then add the meatballs and the clams. Cover and cook for 5 mins until the clam shells open. Discard any that stay shut. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley, drizzle with the extra virgin oil, then serve with crusty bread.

Infiniti Fastest Growing UK Car Brand After Sales Double

Infiniti's prestigious range is now so popular that it is the fastest growing automotive brand in the United Kingdom, the manufacturer confirmed. Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders figures show that between January and April 2016, registrations increased 111% compared to the equivalent period the previous year. Furthermore, April 2016 new vehicle registrations increased 91% compared to the same month in 2015. Barry Beeston, Country Director for

the United Kingdom commented: “It’s great to see such strong growth. Leading the market in terms of percentage increase during the first 4 months of 2016 shows Infiniti’s continuous momentum.” He added: “As we grow, we naturally push further into all channels in the UK to gain market share. Early signs show we have an even sales split between fleet and retail, which is a good indicator that Infiniti is heading in the right direction for future growth.”

Reborn Vauxhall Viva still value for money Motorists under the age of 40 will struggle to remember the Vauxhall Viva on the roads of Britain in any great numbers, as production ceased in 1979. The car, which was first introduced in 1965 at the princely sum of £528, gave way to a new generation of frontwheel-drive cars in Britain when Vauxhall introduced the new Astra. But in its day the Viva represented good valuefor-money family motoring, an adage which is just as true of the new generation Viva which is on sale now. With an on-the-road price of just £7,995 the latest Viva is a nononsense, what you see is what you get, good looking fiveseater hatchback. It’s cheap to run, comfortable, drives well and its 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, 75bhp engine punches above its weight. Even with a full compliment of passengers on board it still pulls well, although you do have to work the five speed gearbox

on very steep hills. Surprisingly, despite its small engine the Viva is a very quiet, civilised car and its firm but comfortable suspension ensures an impressive ride. Even the entry-level SE model is well equipped, boasting electric front windows, cruise control, lane departure warning, steering wheel mounted audio controls, multi-function trip computer and front fog lights which illuminate the corners as you turn. There’s even a city mode

button to make the speed sensitive steering super light for easy parking. And what is surprising is the space inside the Viva considering its compact dimensions. There’s generous room for two in the back – three with a squeeze – and anyone sitting in the front will find more than enough head and leg room. Luggage space is limited and you would struggle with a large suitcase but it’s more than adequate for the weekly family

shop and folding the rear seatbacks down to increase the capacity from just 206 litres to more than 1,000 should suffice for holidays. Highly manoeuvrable, the Viva is one of the easiest cars on the market to drive. The five-speed gearbox is smooth and creamy to use and you get a conventional rather than electronic handbrake. There’s a tendency to assume that small cars with small engines will struggle on motorways but the little Viva is more than happy to mix it with the big boys in the fast lane and

noise levels remain low. Vauxhall bosses have done a great job with their new baby and I really enjoyed my week with the Viva. The latest one is certainly a credit to the old name and you would be hard pressed to find better value for money. Fast Facts Model: Vauxhall Viva SE Price: £7,995 Mechanical: 999cc, 75 bhp three cylinder petrol engine driving front wheels via 5-speed manual gearbox. Max speed: 106 mph 0-62mph: 13.1 secs Combined mpg: 62.8 CO2 emissions: 104 g/km Insurance: 3E BiK: 17 % Warranty: 3 years/60,000 miles

THE UNKNOWN MEMORIAL The greatest trick an enemy can play is to make everyone believe everyone else is their enemy!

The Russian artist, Zurab Tsereteli, was in his home in Moscow on September 11th 2001, and like many across the world was glued to the coverage of the attacks on the Twin Towers. Their subsequent collapse moved him to tears. That day, he went to work at the Academy of Art driving on a route that takes him past the American Embassy where people were gathered outside the gates to pay their sympathies. He saw a mass of crying people and decided to use the image of a tear in a memorial. He set to work that day on a proper and appropriate form through which to express his feelings over the attack and went through many various sketches and forms until finally deciding on the style of the monument. Zurab went to New York shortly after 9/11 and went to Ground Zero. The ruins were still smoking. He decided that he wanted to create a memorial to the victims but not on the site itself; he began to look for an appropriate and fitting site for the memorial. Zurab spoke to friends and colleagues who were in NY during the attacks and heard stories about how boats and ferries were used to shuttle survivors away from the Twin Towers. He also learned about the New Jersey residents who worked in the towers and thus decided to look for a suitable site there where the monument could be on the waterfront on settled on a never before seen area of the peninsula at Bayonne on a site that had been decided to convert into public park space. It has previously been a military installation. Like many, you’re probably thinking “what memorial on Bayonne?” Don’t worry; you’re not alone, as many millions of American’s aren’t even aware of its existence. Why? Possibly because the Teardrop Memorial was an official gift to the American people from the government and people of Russia? In September 2005, Russian President Vladimir Putin was present in Bayonne, New Jersey, for the groundbreaking that launched the oneyear construction project. The entire structure was designed and built in Russia, transported in pieces to the US, and assembled in Harbour View Park on the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbour. The remarkable view from this beautiful two-acre public park on the New Jersey side of New York Harbour includes both the One World Trade Centre in downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. The completed sculpture was dedicated on September 11th 2006 in a ceremony attended by President Bill Clinton, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, Governor Jon Corzine, Senator Frank Lautenberg, Senator Robert Menendez and family members of World Trade Centre victims. Grammy award winner Leann

visit New York every year and more than eight million live there but no one seems to have heard of The Teardrop...which is odd because it is a 100ft tall, 175-ton memorial to those who died on the city's blackest day.” He goes on to say that, “I tried to discover more from locals at Ground Zero, where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre stood until September 11, 2001, and was met with blank expressions. The one person who did know was an official guide but he said: 'I bet 99 per cent of New Yorkers haven't a clue where it is!” Even when he arrived on New Jersey, he followed some vague instructions before arriving at 34th Street in Bayonne and simply asking around. A local, who had never heard of the Teardrop, eventually offered to call a local taxi firm on his mobile who did know of its location. “Nobody ever comes here,” the taxi driver said to John Craven. Indeed, they were the only visitors, and even John himself mused that surely it hadn't been snubbed because it was from an old enemy? The subject of The Teardrop exploded across the internet during the middle of August, with many thinking it was one of many hoaxes. But it’s not a hoax or a myth; it’s true, and many are up in arms as to why its existence has appeared to have been covered up for so long. A lady from Brooklyn commented: “I live in Brooklyn, New York City, and I never even knew about this thoughtful, emotional gesture presented to us by Russia honouring all the victims of 9/11. It is a beautiful Teardrop shining through a crack in the wall evoking the sadness that the Russian people felt for us because of the terrorist attack! Why were we New Yorker’s never even told or shown this monument? Because if came from Vladimir Putin and the Rimes was on hand to sing the National Anthem. The Tear of Grief or the Teardrop Memorial is a 10story, 100 feet (30m) sculpture made of steel and coated in bronze, split with a jagged opening through the middle. Inside the opening hangs a large stainless steel teardrop, 40 feet (12 m) high, in memory of those whose lives were lost during terrorist attacks in the United States. The eleven sides of the monument's base bear granite name plates, on which are etched the names of those who died in the September 11 attacks AND the 1993 World Trade Centre bombing. Have you seen it before in the press or on TV? Even everyone’s favourite television uncle, John Craven, on a visit to the USA learned of the existence of the Teardrop by pure chance. In an article in the Daily Mail published in November 2012, he says that “about 50 million people

Russian people?” The more I read and look into this story, the more it looks like a deliberate attempt to prevent the world seeing the generosity of a person and a people that are always portrayed as an enemy. Propaganda at its worst, and another example of the oft quoted “Mushroom world” we live in when it comes to politicians with the back up and support of the controlled media. Kept in the dark and fed manure...or other words that fit and found in Roget’s Thesaurus! As he stood next to the memorial, John Craven said that he was struck by the thought that when passengers sail into Manhattan the first monument they now pass is not the Statue of Liberty but The Teardrop. And none of them will know what it is for. They will now.....

ONLY ONE WINNER – THE CITY OF MADRID

The Real half of the capital win title for the 11th time Real Madrid confirmed their status as aristocrats of the European game by winning their 11th European Cup/Champions League, defeating city rivals Atletico Madrid 5-3 on penalties after normal time and extra time finished a goal apiece in Milan. It was Madrid’s second title in three years after beating the same opponents 4-1 in the 2014 final in Lisbon. Portuguese striker, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning penalty after Atletico’s Juanfran hit the post with his team’s fourth spot kick. Yesterday’s game started with Real Madrid applying the early pressure by taking advantage of their aerial prowess. Within ten minutes, Atletico keeper Jan Oblak was called upon to save off the line with his left foot. On fifteen minutes, Real drew first blood via a set piece. Toni Kroos floated in a free kick which was nodded on by Gareth Bale before Sergio Ramos scrambled in from close range. The goal was deserved despite suspicions of offside from Ramos. Replays also cast doubts on who scored the goal with no visible touch from Ramos but Real could care less. However Atletico got a foothold as the game progressed and by the half hour mark were the more dominant team. Against all expectations, Atletico – who

got to the final averaging 30 per cent possession in their previous four matches – bossed possession as Real were content to sit back, soak up pressure and counterattack. The second half started with Atletico manager Diego Simeone using one of his trump cards by throwing on Belgian winger, Yannick Carrasco, in place of defensive midfielder Augusto Fernandez. The substitution paid immediate dividends as Atletico started the second half on the front foot and within three minutes, Fernando Torres conned Real’s Pepe into conceding a penalty. However, Atletico’s standout player of the season, Frenchman Antoine Greizmann, thumped the spot kick

against the crossbar to the relief of Real fans at the 70,000-capacity San Siro stadium. Not long after, missed Stefan Savic somehow missing the target from six yards after Diego Godin and Griezmann had kept a corner alive. Real should have made sure of victory when Benzema was thwarted by Oblak after Luka Modric had impressively sent him through on goal. They came even closer when the otherwise quiet Ronaldo was denied by Oblak twice in quick succession, with Bale’s goal-bound attempt from the rebound cleared off the line by Savic. Atletico kept pressing on though and with ten minutes left of normal time, Carrasco finished off a smooth Atletico move by converting Juanfran’s cross. Extra time followed, with Atletico keeping the ball better but Real looking very threatening on the break. Thirty minutes of extra time couldn’t separate the two teams, so it was down to the lottery of penalties to decide of Real won their eleventh European trophy or Atletico their first. Real chose to play first and Lucas Vazquez, Marcelo, Bale and Ramos were successful, while Greizmann, Saul NIguez and Gabi all converted for Atletico before Juanfran’s miss handed Ronaldo the chance to win it for Real with the final penalty.

TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP...AND BACK! Hull City return to the Premier League

Burnley and Middlesbrough had already won their promotion to the Barclays Premier League via the traditional route of finishing in the top two positions of the Championship. The third and final place was confirmed over the weekend as Hull City secured their passage back to the top level of English football with a 10 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley on Saturday. One second of pure quality from the right foot of Mohamed Diame is all that was needed 72 minutes into a tight contest, albeit a contest that the Tigers enjoyed the better of, and it was the sweetest of strikes as the Senegal international curled home a shot from 25 yards. Steve Bruce’s side had had their chances before that – Abel Hernandez seeing a header cleared off the line and another first half effort brilliantly saved by Keiren Westwood, and Diame had also tested the strength of the woodwork – but in the end it only needed one to be taken and Diame duly obliged. Unsurprisingly, Bruce named the same starting eleven that had tackled Derby County over two legs in the semi-final, meaning Eldin Jakupovic continued in goal in Allan McGregor’s injuryenforced absence. Tom Huddlestone fired an early shot straight down the throat of Westwood, although it was Sheffield Wednesday who did much of the early running with Fernando Forestieri forcing Michael Dawson into a tenth-minute challenge that brought the Tigers’ captain a yellow card. Forestieri’s free kick was pushed over the bar by Jakupovic. Another Owls’ free kick brought another save out of Jakupovic, the goalkeeper beating away Ross Wallace’s effort before the Tigers really began to grow into the game midway through the first half.

First Hernandez saw a header from a Robert Snodgrass corner blocked on the goal-line by Kieran Lee before penalty appeals were turned down when Dawson’s follow-up effort appeared to strike a Wednesday hand. Hernandez then brought a fine save out of Westwood after latching onto Diame’s clever pass, the striker seeing his shot brilliantly turned over the bar and Diame himself then fired against the post after some fine footwork had seen a shooting opportunity open up. Moses Odubajo sent a shot wide from 20 yards before the right back found himself through on goal, but a heavy first touch allowed Westwood to rush from his line to block. A late Wednesday set-piece brought a far-post chance for Tom Lees but his header was well saved by Jakupovic. Into the second half and Curtis Davies was forced into

a making a well-timed challenge on Forestieri inside the box while at the other end, Dawson controlled a Snodgrass cross at the far post before seeing an effort saved by Westwood. The Tigers really should have been in front just after the hour mark when a quick counter-attack had Odubajo away down the right. He crossed low into the centre where Andrew Robertson was arriving, but he could only balloon a shot high over the bar. Hutchinson fired over at the other end before Diame’s match-winning moment arrived 18 minutes from time. Collecting a Snodgrass pass after the Scottish international had seized on a poor clearance, Diame turned and curled an absolute beauty over Westwood and into the top of the net from 25 yards. Wednesday now had to throw men forward which meant they were leaving gaps at the back and Odubajo almost exploited that when running onto Huddlestone’s chipped pass but a half-volley only found the side-netting. Hernandez saw a shot well blocked by Glenn Loovens, but it soon became about making things rock solid at the back. Hernandez, Diame and Snodgrass were all withdrawn as David Meyler, Sam Clucas and Harry Maguire entered the action. There were still half-chances for the Tigers in the final ten minutes as Davies headed a difficult chance wide and Huddlestone dragged a shot across goal, but it was an aerial bombardment that Bruce’s men had to withstand, and they did. A final corner deep into added time, which saw goalkeeper Westwood pushed into the attack, was defended and cleared and the final whistle signalled a return to the big league.

THIS IS LOOKING MESSI...

Following three years of accusations and rumours that have dogged him and his family since June 2013, Argentina football star Lionel Messi, one of the world's highest-paid athletes, goes on trial in Barcelona today (Tuesday) for allegedly defrauding Spain of over four million euros in unpaid taxes. After winning a league and Cup double with Barcelona, the five-time World Player of the Year and his father will have their day in court. The trial will run until this Thursday, June 2 - the day when Messi is due to testify along with his father. The court appearance comes just days before he joins his Argentina teammates for the Copa America in the United States. Argentina take on defending champions Chile in their first game of the tournament in California on June 6. Messi and his father, Jorge Horacio Messi, are accused of using a chain of fake companies in Belize and Uruguay to avoid paying taxes on 4.16 million euros ($4.7 million) of Messi's income earned through the sale of his image rights from 2007-09. They have been charged with three counts of tax fraud. Spanish prosecutors are seeking a jail sentence of 22and-a-half months for Messi and his father if they are found guilty, plus fines equivalent to the amount that was allegedly defrauded, but any such sentence would likely be suspended as it is common in Spain for first offences carrying a sentence of less than two years. Under Spanish law, a defendant is not obliged to attend the full trial if prosecutors seek a jail sentence of

less than two years, which means Messi may only show up on June 2 for his testimony. The football star and his defence team have argued that the player's father handled his finances without reporting to him, and that the striker was not aware of any wrongdoing. "My dad handled the cash," Messi said in September 2013 when he was questioned by a judge investigating the case at a court in Gavia, a town on the outskirts of Barcelona where the footballer lives. The player's father agreed. "He has nothing to do (with these issues), he only plays football," Jorge Horacio Messi said. State prosecutors initially asked that the case against Messi be dropped, arguing the player only followed the instructions of his father who he "trusted fully and blindly".

But the judge in charge of the case in October 2015 rejected the request, arguing in his ruling that "there are rational signs that the criminality was committed by both accused parties". The income related to Messi's image rights that was allegedly hidden includes endorsement deals with Banco Sabadell, Danone, Adidas, Pepsi-Cola, Procter & Gamble and the Kuwait Food Company. Questions over the player's finances increased after Messi and his father were among those named in April in reports by international media who received a vast trove of data and documents leaked from a law firm based in Panama. The two men opened a company in Panama in June 2013, just after the allegations of tax fraud broke, to continue to hide income earned from image rights from Spanish tax authorities, Spanish news site El Espanol reported. The Messi family acknowledged the existence of the company but they said it was "totally inactive" and never had any funds. The scandal appears not to have dented the popularity of the footballer whom Forbes magazine says was the world's fourth highest paid athlete last year with earnings of $74 million. Both Barcelona and the Argentine Football Association have supported the player, who is loudly cheered whenever he appears on the pitch at the Spanish club's Camp Nou stadium. Barcelona managers have even insinuated that there is a conspiracy to tar the image of their star player, who has been key to the club's success on the pitch in recent years.
