Coronation Day for new King of Spain


PAIN is set to have a new king today (Thursday). Crown Prince Felipe, 46, (pictured with his daughters) was due to be enthroned as the new King of Spain at 10.30am. In what has been planned as an austere and low-key ceremony, in keeping with the country’s frugal stance amidst the economic crisis, he will be crowned without a religious ceremony. No foreign dignitaries have been invited. The king-in-waiting himself had reportedly requested that his proclamation be a simple affair. Turn to Page 6

MIJAS MOUNTAIN: Suitable for bee keeping.

Bee keeping and cone collecting

MIJAS COUNCIL is opening a public adjudication for anyone who wants to use the mountains of the Sierra Blanca and Bermeja (Mijas mountains) for bee keeping. For an annual fee of â‚Ź97, a licence can be obtained for commercial bee keeping in the

following areas which have been reserved by the council: CaĂąada Los Jaenes, Los Hoyos and Fuente las Adelfas; Angel Nozal, mayor of Mijas, has commented that the aim of this initiative is to bring back local traditions which were being lost and to, possibly, provide some

sort of income for those who wish to make a business of it. This bee keeping initiative goes along with the other council offer of collecting pine cones from the mountains for their sale to the public. Anyone interested can apply to Mijas Council before June 24.

Money laundering in Mijas NATIONAL POLICE in Malaga have embargoed five financial products and €50,000 from three people all accused of crimes in Switzerland and Holland. One of the accused, a Swiss man, is being investigated for embezzlement and money laundering while the other two suspects, both Dutch, stand accused of counterfeiting

currency. In a joint operation, with the police forces in Switzerland and Holland, the National Police in Malaga started the investigations when they were alerted to the presence of the Swiss suspect in the Costa del Sol village of Mijas. They managed to locate him and embargoed his financial

products and all cash on the premises. They then went on to locate and arrest the other two components of the gang, a man of 44 and a woman of 46 - both from Holland, who are wanted internationally for counterfeiting crimes. The police investigations are ongoing.

15 per cent BEACH BONFIRE: The local way to celebrate.

Summer solstice and San Juan THE summer solstice happens when the tilt of the earth, in either the northern or southern hemisphere, is most inclined towards the sun. Solstices happen twice every year and this year the summer solstice will happen on June 21. At exactly 10.51am the sun will reach its highest position in the sky as seen from either the North or South Pole. In Spain this means ‘La Noche de San Juan’ (The Night of San Juan) which is a pagan festival whose principal rite consists of building a bonfire in order to give the sun more intensity, but in reality means that entire villages will spend the night on the beach having a party, setting off fireworks and barbecuing

Amy’s stepdad to visit Spain for vigil THE stepfather of missing Irish teenager Amy Fitzpatrick is due to travel to Spain despite being accused of killing her brother. David Mahon, who is accused of murdering Dean Fitzpatrick, is set to visit Spain for a vigil and attend Mass for Amy. Dean Fitzpatrick is the brother of the 15-year-old Irish girl, missing from the Costa del Sol since 2008. He was found fatally stabbed last May, in an apartment at Burnell Square in Northern Cross, Dublin. The Irish High Court announced the decision to have Mr Mahon’s bail conditions relaxed, and have his passport returned to him between December 17 and January 5, 2015, so he can organise and attend a vigil and Mass for Amy during Christmas. The siblings resettled in Spain with their mother, Audrey and her partner, Mr Mahon in 2004. Amy Fitzpatrick went missing near midnight on New Year’s Day 2008, while walking home from a friend’s house on Mijas Costa on the Costa del Sol.

Felipe ascends to throne From Front Page Nevertheless, a military procession has been scheduled, and the new king and queen are expected to present themselves to the public from the Royal Palace’s balcony in Madrid. Prince Felipe will ascend to the Spanish throne following the unexpected abdication of his father, King Juan Carlos. Juan Carlos’s coronation took place in 1975 after Franco’s death. The abdication sparked calls throughout the country for a

referendum on the future of Spain’s monarchy and for a new republic to be established. Demonstrations with tens of thousands of

people taking part were staged in cities across Spain, calling for a public debate on the future of the monarchy, with republican organisations

to the fore. Others have frowned on the low-key coronation, instead wanting more pomp and ceremony, saying it would give the country a boost.

Resident shot in Guadalmar NATIONAL POLICE have detained two men for a shooting in Guadalmar. The two men, 23 and 27, are being held on suspicion of stealing €1,000 and then shooting a resident in Guadalmar. In a joint operation between the Guardia Civil and the National Police two have been detained - one of them has gone straight to prison - and a third person has had a European search and arrest warrant put out in their name as they are suspected of fleeing to Romania. The two detainees allegedly broke into a house in Guadalmar wearing balaclava helmets, stole €1,000 and then shot the resident in the shoulder. Police were originally called to the scene of the crime when the injured man’s assistant called them after finding her boss had been shot in

After a joint investigation, National Police and Guardia Civil were able to identify and locate the three alleged perpetrators of the crime. The victim, who rented out rooms by the hour to couples, had received a call from unknown persons booking a room for the next night. When the two potential clients arrived they pretended to be

The first detention was the 23-year-old who was found in Pizarra and stands accused of violent robbery and falsifying official paperwork. He has been sent to prison with no possibility of bail. The second detention was the 27-year-old; he was found in Villfranco del Guadalhorce and stands accused of robbery with violence.

Beware of bogus landlords as prospective tenants swindled BOGUS landlords in Marbella have swindled a couple out of €600. “Central flat, near amenities and beach.” This is the advert that Ezequiel Eduardo Bruscagin and his partner Natalia Taboada answered when they were looking for temporary accommodation in Marbella in May.

Bruscagin and Taboada both live in Granada but spend their summers working in Marbella and, as such, needed somewhere to live. So they answered the advert and were met by ‘Fernando’ and his son who professed to be the owner of the studio. After seeing the space and talking with ‘Fernando’ the

couple agreed to rent the studio. They put down a deposit of €150 and two weeks later they laid out another €150 towards the deposit and the first month’s rent; in total they paid out more than €600. The problem was that ‘Fernando’ was not the real owner of the studio and had no right to rent it out.

Bruscagin and Taboada lost all the money they put down and never saw ‘Fernando’ again. The actual owner of the flat has come forward and stated to the authorities that he had nothing to do with the couple being swindled. After a complaint was lodged with the police,

officers immediately recognised who they were dealing with as ‘Fernando’ was well known to them for various crimes committed in his past. Bruscagin commented that in future he would always ask to see the deeds of a property before handing over any money to an alleged owner.

Her daughter, Claudia, was discharged from the emergency room three times in the 48 hours previous to her death from septicaemia in November of 2010. Her mother then started a judicial war which she continues to wage today. The original complaint that Fanny lodged with the authorities was dismissed by a judge who considered that there was no penal responsibility on the part of the health service. The family is now trying to sue the SAS, for €114,482, through the civil courts and Fanny commented “the money is not important. I want someone to investigate what happened.” She says a lawyer for the SAS called her and asked her how much she wanted but she was so shocked by their attitude that she decided not to accept any offer made out of court. Her current complaint lodged against the SAS includes the whole story of how she went to the hospital repeatedly and how they kept telling her that her daughter had gastroenteritis and sending her home - the girl continued to get worse and eventually she took her back only to receive the same answer of gastroenteritis. A day later she took her back to the emergency room again and received the same answer again despite the girl getting worse and worse. Finally she took her to the hospital in Malaga but it was too late as the girl died the next day in the ICU.

Copper cable thieves caught NATIONAL POLICE in Malaga have caught two people who now stand accused of the theft of

more than 1,500 kilos of copper cabling stolen from a quarry in Igualeja, Malaga.

Drugs hidden in toys AN organised crime group which sent drugs from Argentina and Colombia to Spain, some hidden in toys, has been arrested. More than eight kilos of cocaine have been confiscated in the police operation. The gang would use the postal service to send the drugs and camouflage them in random objects including children’s toys, clothes, coffee or bottles of beer. Seven people have been detained, among

them the leader of the gang. The drugs would be sent to Madrid, Alicante and Malaga where they would be ‘cut’ and sold on in smaller amounts. The investigation started last year when police became aware of an increase in the amount of drugs being sent and received through the post. After a surveillance operation, the police were able to identify and arrest the group responsible.

The cabling was found at an abandoned farmhouse along with the stolen vehicle which the thieves used in the course of their robberies and to transport the cabling. The investigation started when the owner of the abandoned farmhouse called the police to let them know that his house was being used by two individuals to store items which he knew nothing about, among them a lot of copper cabling. The police then put surveillance in place and waited until someone turned up. They didn’t have to wait long as the very next day they observed two people unloading more items into the

She said that, as well as the parents, they had been asking about the park for some time but had never received an answer. She did admit some of the flooring had been “patched up,” but that this was not enough as the La Muralla Park was the only children’s park in the village.

Road tax scam leads to 10 arrests for fraud NATIONAL POLICE have detained 10 people for falsifying road tax paperwork so that they could transfer ownership of vehicles.

Hillside crash SEVEN people were injured when their van crashed into the side of a hill in Mijas. Six of the occupants were only slightly hurt and did not need to be taken to hospital. The remaining passenger was taken to the Costa del Sol Hospital suffering from bruising. The accident happened on the A-7 as it passes through Mijas.

After carrying out two searches, one in Malaga and one in Arroyo de la Miel, the 10 were arrested on suspicion of falsifying official paperwork and making money from falsifying bank documents to ‘prove’ that the road tax payment had been paid on any particular vehicle. Investigations started when the DGT (traffic authorities) noticed that they had not received the relevant payment corresponding to at least 10 vehicles which were in the process of being transferred. But they were all accompanied by the correct paperwork declaring that the payments had been made. However, an analysis

of their files revealed that all of the cars in question were being dealt with by just two administrative agencies, one in Malaga and the other in Arroyo de la Miel. Fraud officers were able to discover that the accounts, from which the payments were supposed to have been made, did not even exist and the names of the people on the paperwork were all false. Investigations concluded with the arrest of the 10 people; eight were working in the administrative offices and another two were selling the cars. All 10 have been released on bail conditions while waiting for their cases to be heard.

Not such a sweet reason SOME parents of children who go to the Maria del Mar Romera de La Cala del Moral school, in Malaga, are extremely angry that their children were given political propaganda by the PP (Partido Popular). Alberto Perez, father of a student at the school, said that it was a great surprise when he saw his four-year-old coming off the bus and asking him “What does PP mean?” and asking him to open a little blue sweet with the initials prominently displayed on the wrapper. He went on to explain that many of the children on the bus had the sweets and many of the parents were confused as children that young should not be the target of political propaganda. Perez went on to comment that it did not matter what the political persuasion of the parents was; neither PP parents or PSOE parents or any other kind of political group’s parents would want their young children to be prey to propaganda from any party. The children say that the driver gave them the sweets they were in a big bowl at the

GRANTS: For language studies abroad.

55 grants for the best Malaga students THE 55 students, from the University of Malaga, with the highest pass grade on their recent ‘access’ exams will receive grants to go to foreign universities for the summer of 2015 to improve their language skills. The first 25 are destined for those who want to study architecture or engineering and the other 30 will go to students studying any subject so long as they are

at the top of their class. Applications for the grants have to be in by September 15, the destination universities will be published in February and in April the amount of places will be finalised for the students to go abroad in the summer of 2015. The amounts of the grants will vary, depending on destination country, but should be between €2,500 and €3,000.

Roads are a slippery problem MALAGA City Council is to oblige the religious processions to take special precautions so that they do not spill wax on the roads. The spillage is not only difficult to clean up but the main problem is that it makes the roads dangerous for traffic for several days, and even weeks, after the procession is long gone. Most of the Easter processions, and any religious procession regardless of time of year, have an element within them that demands the carrying of candles. It is these candles which are causing the problems on the streets by making them extremely slippery for traffic despite having been cleaned up by the council workers. Wax is difficult to get off the roads and cannot be removed 100 per cent. Raul Jimenez, councillor for the Environment, has announced the council is going to oblige the processions, through the associations of brotherhoods, to come up with some sort of solution to minimise the after effects. Jimenez went on to underscore the fact that the Corpus Christi procession, due to go out this Sunday, will be among the first to use these precautionary methods as the last procession left the Calzada de la Trinidad street with severe problems and several cars had minor collisions due to the slipperiness of the road surface. These precautions will not have to be taken in Easter as the council is happy to keep them traditional and clean up after them but these rules will apply to all processions that are held outside this time.

Handing over the cheque for €1,300 to David Mantle, President of Age Care, he explained the Lodge is supporting Age Care because “Age Care is a local charity doing such a worthwhile job with the local older community. As we all know, money is very hard to come by, so we are happy to do all we can to help. Also, we are not getting any younger and

someday we may need the help of Age Care.” David Burns also said: “The Lodge is not a social club; our aim is to raise funds for local charities. However, we have a full social calendar including dinners, quizzes and race meetings and new members are always welcome. This year we raised over €3,100 for local charities” David Mantle thanked David and the members of the Masonic Lodge saying how grateful Age Care was.

By Pete Woodall THE recent controversy over British passports has taken a turn for the better. As from Monday June 23, expats fearful that unexpected delays could affect their travel plans, can ask for a 12 month extension to be added to their existing passport.

Passport extensions The extension is free of charge and is available from the British Consulate but conditions apply. Those who have already sent off for their passports but are still somewhere in the system, can pay for an

emergency travel document, an EDT. For others the normal passport renewal process is still in place but it is slower, a standard renewal taking up to six weeks at the moment, lost and stolen passports longer. An EDT can be issued at short notice and is usually valid for up to five different destinations including return to Spain, provided the applicant is a resident or there are sufficient grounds. An EDT does not automatically guarantee the same entry rights into a country, as a full British passport would, some countries will not accept EDTs or in cases like the USA the holder will also require a visa. Mindful of the potential rush, for extensions and EDTs the consulates will try to attend to the most urgent cases first, especially those with immediate travel plans starting in the next couple

In both cases for extensions and ETDs, applicants are advised to contact their nearest British Consulate, preferably by phone or via the website and make an appointment rather than just walk in. Passport holders with the new extension should probably replace their passport as soon as the crisis has blown over to avoid creating a similar scenario in 12 months time.

Reportedly the FCO gave due warning to Her Majesty’s Passport Office in January that moving passport renewals back to the UK could and probably would cause painful delays.

Police union calls for bulletproof jackets THE UFP (Police Union) is suing Malaga’s provincial police superintendent, Pedro Garijo, for not handing out bullet-proof jackets to officers. Following the tragic death of the policeman who was stabbed in Malaga, the union is demanding that bulletproof jackets be distributed – apparently there are more than 100 of the jackets “gathering mould” in warehouses which have not been handed out due to the “laziness and lack of interest” at headquarters. Garijo is being sued for not obeying the laws of risk prevention at work.

Local man helps shark give birth JUST before nine in the morning, Antonio Carillo was on his way to work when he had one of the strangest experiences of his life. He saw what he thought was a dolphin in trouble on the beach and, being an animal lover, went nearer to see if he could help. The nearer he got the more amazed he became as he realised that it was actually a shark giving birth. His first reaction was to drag the animal, which was more than two metres long, by its tail back into deeper waters thinking it would be more comfortable there. “It seemed to be tired but didn’t look hurt,”

commented Antonio. As he was in the process of getting hold of the shark’s tail he noticed another, smaller, tail coming out of it and it was then that he realised what was happening. “My first thought was that if the mother dies then at least the young will survive,” he said. He then set about helping the young sharks out of their mother’s belly by pressing down on it. Ten tiny sharks came out, all, apparently, in good health. He placed a call to the Guardia Civil’s animal protection service (SEPRONA) but as it all happened so quickly they did not

arrive in time to help with the birth. “The more tiny sharks came out of her the stronger she seemed to get,” recalled Antonio. Once all the babies were born, Antonio and a Guardia Civil officer helped the mother and her offspring to get to deeper water and then the young family swam away.

Scandinavians eye Spanish property OVER the first three months of 2014, more than a fifth of all Spanish residential sales were made by foreign buyers, according to Knight Frank’s Global Property Search 2014. Spanish home purchases by foreigners reached 11.15 per cent in 2013 compared to only 4.24 per cent of sales as seen in 2009, as reported by the General Council of Notary Offices.

Scandinavians, particularly those from Sweden and Norway, now make up over a fifth of buyers in Spain - a huge increase on previous years. Freezing cold winters, stable economies, greatly improved flight routes and a love of the Spanish lifestyle - it is little wonder that Scandinavians are now one of the fastest growing groups of foreign buyers of Spanish property. According to Knight

Frank’s Global Property Search, online searches for properties in Spain increased by 29 per cent over the first three months of 2014 compared with the same period in 2013. With more than a fifth of all Spanish residential sales 55,187 transactions - made by foreign buyers. For the first time in several years, demand is outstripping supply in the Spanish second-home property market.

The website includes Spain’s Government assistance to victims, several legal resources available to them, as well as Spain’s collaboration with other world organisations. It also contains detailed information about the social, educational, labour and health-related measures taken by the Spanish Government to support the victims of terrorism. The Spanish Government closely works with associations, foundations and nonprofit organisations which represent and defend the interests of victims of terrorism. Moreover, the Ministry of the Interior grants subsidies to those institutions to both promote their creation and maintenance. In addition, Spain has created a terrorism assistance unit, which includes specially trained personnel in psycho-social, medical and financial areas. Furthermore, the Spanish Ministry of Justice set up an Office of Information and Assistance to Victims of Terrorism at the Audiencia Nacional.

Proving Spanish Residency: a British tax resident of Spain THE title of the post is confusing, contradictory and appears to make little sense; I will admit to that. But at times, the idiosyncrasy of Spanish bureaucracy lends itself to these situations. The case relates to a client who was selling his property, had been a resident of Spain for 20 years but, because he was not legally obliged to file annual tax returns (he was retired) he did not exist for the Spanish Tax Office and so, he would not be given a Tax Residency Certificate, necessary to avoid the 3 per cent CGT retention on the proceeds when a property is sold. And because he was so adamant Spain was his place of retirement, and of

his tax residency, he was not going to let the Tax Office get away with it. So in the knowledge that in the Costa del Sol, if you submit a query to three different tax/legal professionals you end up with four different opinions, we told him about Hacienda’s Binding Consultation Service, the ultimate official opinion on a tax matter; the case was duly submitted to Directorate General of Tax (DGT) for confirmation of what he had read on the subject.

And their response was: 1. The main document that proves tax residency in Spain is the Tax Residency Certificate. 2. The issuance of an individual Tax Residency Certificate is subject to the applicant proving his/her residency in Spain. 3. Where the above certificate cannot be obtained, the onus of proving Spanish residency lies with the taxpayer who will be able to submit, in support of his claim, alternative evidence: Certificate of ‘empadronamiento,’ children’s school enrolment applications, rental payments, water and electricity receipts etc…). 4. The Spanish Tax Office, based on the widely accepted judicial ‘principle of free evaluation of the evidence,’ will determine whether the applicant is, or isn’t, tax resident in Spain. By experience, I will add a fifth item: a certificate of non-residency from the Tax Office of the country of origin. We have submitted it on a prior case and adds considerable weight to the application. Finally, it is worth noting the Spanish Tax Office has not commented on the EU residency forms issued by National Police Stations.

MOTORWAY: A warning to holidaymakers to watch out.

Highway robbers warning to tourists THE British Embassy in Spain is warning holidaymakers to watch out for ruthless gangs of modern-day highway robbers who are preying on people driving foreign-registered vehicles and hire cars. Police in the Catalonia region of Spain have dealt with 126 British victims of robbery on the AP7 motorway between the French border and the Valencia region over the past two years. British Consulates across mainland Spain say they are receiving regular reports of roadside robbery occurring along the coast between Barcelona and Alicante, across Andalucia in the south, and in the Madrid region. Consular staff estimate that 1 in 20 of all emergency passports issued last year as a result of theft were following motorway robberies. A new video produced by the Foreign Office - ‘Don’t let thieves drive you to distraction’ viewable at - shows real-life footage of some of the most common tactics. Highway robbers flag their victim down by indicating there is a problem with their vehicle, then one gets out to distract the occupants’ attention, whilst an unseen accomplice robs passports, money and other valuables before the gang makes a fast getaway. In a second case, the robber tricks a victim into thinking they have a problem

with their parked vehicle, whilst another opens the door and removes valuables. Other tricks include throwing something that creates a sudden noise, or puncturing a tyre at a roadside rest stop. Will Middleton, consular regional director for Spain, warns: “Distraction is the most common technique used by highway robbers in Spain. They will try to worry you about the state of your vehicle, and then whilst they point out the supposed problem, an accomplice is robbing you. “So be wary of anyone attempting to stop you when you are driving, or trying to point out a problem or offering assistance. They may not be the good Samaritan they appear to be. “If someone points out a supposed problem whilst you are on the road, keep going until you reach a service area. If you have to stop, make sure one person stays in the vehicle. Keep valuables out of sight and out of reach. “If you do notice a problem with your vehicle, call your emergency breakdown service for help. “We are working with the Spanish police to alert British visitors to how these gangs work, so that holidaymakers can avoid becoming victims. Police statistics indicate that these robberies are largely non-violent.

How much money is in prostitution? Spain is to include data in statistics STARTING in October, official statistics in Spain will include data from illegal economic transactions, including prostitution. The decision comes after the European Union required all member states to measure their annual GDP the same way. The European budget is allocated depending on the size of a country’s economy. Austria, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, Holland and Sweden already take into account illegal economic transactions when calculating their economic size. Spanish economic experts are putting the finishing touches to a method aimed at quantifying illegal transactions. However, Spain’s Professional Organisation Of State Tax Inspectors (IHE) said that prostitution and soft drug

LEGAL PROSTITUTION: Legalising prostitution would increase public income. trafficking may be legalised to better combat their adverse effects and increase public income.

The IHE estimates that if these sectors paid 30 per cent in taxes, the Spanish Tax Agency could collect close to

Briton’s killer jailed for just three years A MALAGA court has jailed the Spanish killer of father-of-three Stephen Mallon for just three years after finding him guilty of manslaughter. Mr Mallon died during a bar brawl which also left his twin sons with severe injuries. According to local witnesses, the incident started over a girl who used to date one of the accused, outside a disco-bar called La Estrella in the Axarquia village of Cómpeta. Stephen Mallon was subsequently dazed when a beer bottle was smashed over his head. After being hit, he fell against a terrace balcony before being pushed from a 13-foot

ledge to the ground. The Scottish holidaymaker, 49, died 11 days later due to severe bleeding on the brain suffered during the bar brawl. “During the fight, all the defendants attacked the injured Britons with the intention of physically harming them,” State Prosecutor Cecilia Solana told the court, adding: “All the defendants were willing participants. The wronged Britons could only defend themselves against the blows they received.” Mr Mallon’s sons said they were attacked by more than 40 men (of which only 15 took the stand as defendants) armed with belts, irons

bars and flowerpots. Both suffered broken bones. The defendants claim the tourists were the aggressors, provoking the ‘fight’ when one of the twins danced with the girlfriend of one of the men. Two men were found guilty of assault with dangerous weapons and jailed for two years, but in Spain prison sentences of two years or less are normally suspended for first-time offenders. The judge also ordered the main accused, Jose Jimenez Martin, to compensate Mr Mallon’s three children with €90,000 (£72,000) each and his widow Teresa with €120,000 (£96,000).

€6 billion. The 2006 ESCODE report of the Labour and Social Services Ministry looked at

the potential repercussions of legalising prostitution and analysed its viability. It took into account several variables, including the value added tax, the corporate tax, local taxes and the overall tax impact. It concluded, for instance, that legalising prostitution would increase the percentage of the income tax collected in Spain, which generally represents more than 50 per cent of government revenues. Furthermore, it estimates that the overall positive impact of legalising prostitution would amount to 0.53 per cent. Eurostat, which provides detailed statistics on the EU, devised guidelines to regulate these illegal activities and does not consider prostitution or soft drugs to be commercial goods.

A note from the


A new King


PAIN will today have a new King. The increasingly unpopular Juan Carlos I has stepped aside to allow Felipe VI to be crowned. It is a deeply symbolic moment for the country. New blood to lead Spain into a new era, it is to be hoped. It must be remembered that Felipe’s father as a young man brought the country together at a dangerous moment in Spain’s history. Dictator Franco, who had used an iron fist to prevent the social and regional divides from splitting the country, was dead. Who then would keep the country together? Juan Carlos, together with the politicians of the day managed to do just that, but without most of the sinister, violent and politically repressive methods of dictatorship. Now Spain faces a different type of crisis. The social divides and gap between rich and poor seem to be

as wide as ever. People rely on soup kitchens. Tens of thousands of children only get one square meal a day - that provided at school. A new start is needed to bring the country back from the economic and social brink. It is to be hoped that Felipe can symbolise that start with fresh ideas and a sense of leadership in a country that desperately needs both.

Price of life STEPHEN MALLON died after a brawl outside a pub in a quiet Spanish village. He and his sons were set upon and battered in Competa, Axarquia by a mob of 15 young men. He died after the unprovoked assault. Of those 15 men just one will serve time - three years for manslaughter. Mr Mallon has been let down by Spanish justice.

STAT OF WEEK DESPITE slowly improving unemployment figures, openended full-time work contracts have gradually declined since 2007. They now apply to just 49.7 per cent of Spain’s 12.2 million salaried workers.

SPAIN can begin repaying its bank bailout thanks to Bankia. So said junior Treasury Minister Iñigo Fernandez de Mesa as he praised the nationalised bank. The unexpected turnaround was possible thanks to the loyalty of existing clients to the almost ruined but now-

restructured bank, claimed Bankia chairman Jose Ignacio Goirigolzarri. The bank’s 14,000 employees contributed, as did its board of directors who risked their reputations after the government had to step in two years ago, Goirigolzarri added.

The grey area of car-shares SPANISH employees, once officially encouraged to carshare, have been warned that they could be breaking the law. Under transport regulations, people or companies who ferry passengers in private vehicles in return for money must first obtain official permission, the ministry of Public Works warned. Failure to do so could result in a €600 fine for individuals and up to €6,000 for groups. In ‘exceptional circumstance’ repeat offenders could face fines of up to €18,000. The ministry announcement is seen

as a response to protests from bus companies and cab drivers who claim they are losing out to associations like Uber. Much-used in Barcelona, Uber charges users unlike Blablacar which puts passengers wanting a car-share in touch with each other. Costs are shared and no laws broken. Sharing a car is not illegal, but problems arise when a private activity becomes professional public transport, ministry sources said. Insurance in the event of an accident is another consideration, they added.

He was speaking at Ecofin’s Titanes 2014 prize where Fernandez de la Mesa presented him with the Financier of the Year award. Bankia still had many challenges to meet but would continue “working its fingers to the bone” to reach its goals, Goirigolzarri pledged.

The American parent company signed an initial 10-year contract, renewable to 20, in March. CocaCola Iberian Partners, now sole bottler, is the result of a merger between Cobega, Colebega, Casbega, Rendelsur, Began, Norbega and Asturbega.

Coca-Cola has a net turnover of more than €3 billion, marketing 24 brands and 69 products in Spain and Portugal, reaching more than 400,000 distributors. Coca-Cola Iberian Partners now awaits a High Court ruling on its ERE redundancy plan that affects 1,190 jobs and led to the closure of plants in Fuenlabrada, Asturias, Palma de Mallorca and Alicante.

THE Guardia Civil’s UCO unit, which pursues money laundering, is investigating Lionel Messi’s charity football matches. The crack Guardia Civil unit is investigating bank transfers totalling €950,000 from at least two of six ‘Messi and his friends vs The rest of the world’ fundraisers played in the US and Latin America between 2012 and 2013. Money raised from the matches was transferred to a company registered in Curaçao, the offshore tax paradise in the Dutch Antilles. The words ‘G Marin-Messi’ on the counterfoils point to Guillermo Marin, a friend of the Messi family in charge of the matches, UCO alleges. The investigation is parallel to another case brought against Messi by AEAT, Spain’s tax agency, for hiding income from image and advertising rights. The player has now deposited €5 million to offset penal responsibility in the court case that awaits him in Barcelona. In this latest case, Guardia Civil investigators are examining an alleged Colombian connection which, with the cooperation of individuals in Spain, used

CHARITY QUIZ: police investigating matches

Maxisport /

Finances getting messier still for Messi as Guardia Civil investigate the charity matches to launder profits from drugs trafficking. As well as Guillermo Marin, Harisson Gonzalez and Andres Barco - respectively president and vice-president of Total Conciertos - are also in UCO’s sights. Barco recently acknowledged that money was still owed to the charities supposed to benefit from the matches. Messi and his father admitted knowing Marin but denied making any personal profit from the matches. Asked who was in touch with Marin, the player answered: “Not me. My father is the one who makes contact,” echoing an earlier statement to a Barcelona judge when he claimed: “My dad sees to the money.” The player’s Barcelona teammates who played in the matches, including Javier Mascherano, Dani Alves and Jose Manuel Pinto also denied profiting from the matches, although their travel and accommodation were paid for. The Guardia Civil has asked for judicial permission to start new proceedings to establish who is behind the account.

WHEN years ago the UK telephone service, a Post Office monopoly, was deregulated, it opened the market to rivals. The world’s oldest telecommunications company faced competition. The emerging BT did get its act together. It had little choice. Intruders were taking business off them like sweets from a kid. I was one of them. The Australian Red Telephone Company built a commissionbased network of agents placing payphones in restaurants, hotels, retailers, public houses. Anywhere the imagination of resourceful sales staff would take them.

DON’T MISS OUT: Sell yourself first and your service second. Getting the pad scratched was a bit of a struggle. Payphones were a novel concept, took up space and made peanuts. What clinched the deal was my explanation that a payphone attracts new customers who buy profitable things. No matter how good your

service there will be a haemorrhage of lost clients, which is why household name brands advertise. Never miss an opportunity to set your stall out. Having already dined we visited a Mijas patio-restaurant and ordered wine. Although it was quiet we were told wine was

served only with meals. Snubbed, neither we nor our guests ever returned. A lost opportunity to sell their service. On the business ball are typically those who provide space for Euro Weekly News. Duncan, my affable entertaining barber, chats with those calling in for their copy. A great opportunity to build relationships and business. Trained sales staff know you sell yourself first, your service second. Why not find a reason for a special ‘Meet the Staff’ day? It could be a ‘Thank our Customers’ Day. Till takings take second place but don’t worry, they will catch up. Provided your enterprise is within the law all customers, their family and friends, will be treated. This may be little more than wine, delicacies, don’t forget small gifts for children. The small outlay will provide fun and profits. Why not support a charity. Doing so reflects well on your business and attracts a whole new tranche of clients.



Spain does the business abroad SPANISH companies secured 832 foreign contracts worth €45 billion last year, 118 more than in 2012. Despite this increase total international earnings fell by €5 billion, according to the Economy ministry’s Directorate of International Commerce and Investment. The reduction was principally due to the absence of big moneymaking operations like the Mecca to Medina AVE high speed line, won two years ago and worth €7 billion, ministry sources explained. Latin America continues to be the most profitable area for Spanish companies, accounting for 33 per cent of all foreign contracts. The European Union with 23 per cent of contracts came next in importance, followed by the Near East and the Gulf states with 17 per cent. North and SubSaharan Africa are increasingly profitable fields for Spanish firms and the number of contracts increased 100 per cent last year compared with 2012, the ministry revealed. Operations in Australia and New Zealand also grew, with a 66 per cent increase. At the other end of the scale, contracts dwindled in North America, falling from 15 per cent of the total registered in 2012 to just 4 per cent in 2013. Fifty-three per cent of Spain’s international contracts centred on transport and infrastructure, bringing in almost €24 billion. Things are looking good for 2014, the Economy Ministry said.

Loose change A look at finance for females

Jane Plunkett

FOR final year university students there is excitement and lots of nerves in the air. It’s almost time to pack up the books and start out on a journey to see what the future holds. But whether plans are to travel the world or begin looking for a job, after the caps are thrown in the air and the celebrations are over, it is vital that graduates think about the diligent and disciplined use of money. Setting off on the right financial foot and starting as you mean to go on is the best advice for a less bumpy ride in the course of a lifetime. The first most important piece of advice is don’t get into debt. It’s easy for fresh new bait to


What all graduate students need to know about money get lured into attractive bank offers, but money owed is never a good offer. View credit and credit cards with caution and avoid them as much as possible. For those that feel they are disciplined, one credit card that is always paid off at the end of the month is more than enough plastic in your wallet. Your parents may have told you this, but once you become employed start saving immediately. “But I have my whole life to save,” you may protest. I know I did. Getting into the habit of saving is a great routine to get into. And the more it is postponed the harder it is to actually start.

CELEBRATIONS: But it’s vital graduates be disciplined. As a recently employed graduate your expenses are lower than they will ever be, so take

Can the Community seize rental income? Q. The administrator of our Community on the Costa del Sol has sent out an e-mail to the You and the members, which suggests that the problem of Law in Spain non-payment of Community fees can be By David Searl successfully addressed by obtaining a court order for a rental tenant to pay his rent directly to the court instead of to the landlord. The Community would then receive this money from the court until the back fees are paid. This idea seems novel to me and I wonder if such a procedure will indeed be effective. K.S. (Costa del Sol) A. It certainly is effective. Your enclosed e-mail from the administrator does more than ‘suggest.’ He points out the Community has already obtained a judgement against one debtor, in which the tenant has been ordered by the court to pay the court instead of the owner, and another case is under way. People often seem at a loss as to how Community debts can be recovered. The Community President can be authorised to bring a normal lawsuit against the debtor or he can use a procedure called ‘Proceso Monitorio’ which is designed to be simpler and faster for small claims. The court will order a lien against any assets the debtor has in Spain, such as bank accounts or, in your case, rental income. The debt will include the Community’s

legal costs. It takes more time than it should, but the system does function.

advantage of this and put at least 10 per cent of your pay-pack away in a savings account each

month. You’re an adult now so don’t get dazzled and hypnotised by all the shiny new things your friends have. Bets are that they may not be as rich as you think. Most of them are buying this junk on credit - getting into debt for fancy gadgets, jewellery or new car. I can guarantee you that there is nothing luxurious about owing money to the bank. Life and money doesn’t generally tend to get easier as we get older, but by starting off wisely and cautiously you will help avoid some of the financial pitfalls that so many of us have fallen into and are still struggling to climb out of!

Imperial floats Logista distribution company THE Imperial Tobacco Group confirmed that its subsidiary Logista will be quoted on the Spanish stock exchange. Imperial gained control of Logista in 2008 on acquiring Altadis, owner of the Fortuna and Gauloise brands, for €11 billion. According to Bloomberg estimates, Logista is at present worth around €1.8 billion. Logista also works with other companies in the consumer goods sector, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals and publishing. It delivers to the company’s 300,000 delivery points in Spain, Portugal, Italy and France at kiosks, petrol stations, hospitals, pharmacies, hotels and restaurants. Altadis expects to sell Logista shares to a number of institutional investors although Imperial intends to retain a majority stake, the company revealed. Imperial, which has the fourth-largest share of global tobacco sales, is currently combating harsher regulations, a diminishing number of smokers and a weakened consumer market. The Bristol-based business reported September to March pre-tax profits of

Logista had maintained a solid operating performance over the three financial years, said Logista’s CEO Luis Egido Galvez.


Mojacar is reborn as town comes back to life… IN early 2010 we had to sell our holiday apartment in Mojacar due to ill health. We still continued to holiday there over the following years and it was quite sad during our last visit in late 2011 to see that the lovely Mojacar we knew had become a place of empty shops and cafés and was generally not looking good. However, we have just returned from a three-week holiday and what a difference! The seafront area had been smartened up and landscaped and looked really inviting. Then, as we settled into our holiday, we saw new shops and cafés and felt energy and freshness all around. It all added up to making our holiday so wonderful, reaffirming to us that Mojacar is truly the loveliest of places to visit. Well done, Mojacar, and our thanks to all who have helped to make it such a wonderful place. Ron and Linda (by email)

Driving motive THE article on women drivers in Spain (Street Talk Issue 1509) made me laugh. All I can say is that those quoted are obviously not very good drivers, full stop! I am 76 years of age and have driven since the age of 21 on a regular basis. Fortunately, I have never been involved in an accident. I have lived here for 14 years and was widowed four years ago. Yes, perhaps my husband drove more when we were out together but I know I would not still be living here if I did not drive. In fact, I probably prefer driving here, with less traffic, to driving in England. I would say to all those women drivers who let their husband take the wheel: “Don’t stop driving!” If anything happens to him it will be the first thing you need to do. Janet Richards (by email)

Trade gap WHERE are all the extra tourists that your paper mentions? Come to that, where are the tourists? I live in Montemar and all we are short of is tumbleweed. Over the past week we have had maybe 20 people walk by and the roads are very quiet. There are no tourists in this area, the seafront is quiet and all businesses are suffering. There is nowhere for people to park and the sidewalks are littered with dog poo. Spain is slowly tightening the noose on itself by restricting people from parking or charging them a lot to park miles away from where they want to be. Many different nationalities have invested money in this country as well as many Spanish residents and who benefits? Not the locals. Only the government has a stable income - from us.

Bank hold-up Round the bend I LOOK forward to your paper each week but quite often get annoyed by the Letters’ page. It is usually full of complaints about how the Spanish do things wrong and upset expats. The one that really gets to me is the constant griping about driving and in particular how to use a roundabout. Officially a roundabout in Spain is treated as a bend in the road. You can go around it in any lane and if you have to cross a lane to exit it, it is up to you to do so safely and not for other drivers to keep out of your way. If you want to live here, learn the rules before griping about them. If you don't like the rules, easyJet have some very good flights back to the rain and the coalition. Leave those of us who love it here to get on with our hosts. John Maclennan, Benamocarra (Malaga)

Sand storm WHY are Orihuela Costa’s beaches and streets in such a disgusting state in June?

La Zenia is cleaned daily, but not very well. Cala Capitan and Campoamor haven’t been done at all and there are large holes in the sand at Cala Capitan. None of them have walkways even near to the sea: how can the disabled access the water? There are no beach loungers, no cafés, no pedal boats and the sand is filthy. The streets are filthy, too, and weed-ridden. As a tourist I would not return to Orihuela Costa. Given that the restaurants, cafés, shops and apartment owners rely on a few months of tourism to survive, how many will be here in 2015? Name withheld (by email)

Cowboy victims MY wife and I recently returned to England from Alcoy and were recommended someone who was cheap and offered a personal removals service. When our belongings arrived we were horrified at the amount of damage. A brand new fridgefreezer had dents in the top and down the door, which he said were there when he collected it. He handed me a four-inch splinter of wood he had broken off the top of a pine dresser. A Tiffany lampshade which he promised to take great care of will cost in the region of €175 to repair. Finally, the handle of my power washer was broken in two. Due to arthritis I told him at the outset that I was unable to assist in carrying heavy things. When he turned up at our UK residence he was alone, meaning I was forced to endure the pain of lifting heavy items. Let this be a lesson. Cheap he might have been, but was not a member of the BMA. We don’t stand a chance of recouping our losses. Gordon Randall (by email)

I HAVE to disagree with Kate Ferry’s letter about Nora Johnson’s article on the recession. She states that over 50 of her friends were pushed into taking out credit by their banks and clearly thinks that individuals have no responsibility for their actions. The banks forced them to do it!

Rape law will help no one





AN anyone tell me exactly what this Angelina Jolie/ William Hague antirape escapade is actually supposed to achieve? Do they honestly think that by making rape some kind of war crime, their efforts are really going to make any difference whatsoever? When some big buck Neanderthal is razing some township, do they consider a ruling, introduced in a far off land, is going to make the slightest difference to his rampant intentions? Are these people truly of a mind that some despot general is going to instruct his troops to kill everyone, including the women and children, but not to rape anyone or they could all be in real trouble? Give us a break! This whole thing is yet another exercise in showbiz personalities, bored with their pampered lives of stardom, endeavouring to show us all just how much they really ‘care’.

JOLIE: Anti-rape crusade. Couple this with sorry, starstruck politicians, hob-nobbing with these tinsel town twits in an effort to raise their own pathetic profiles and you’ve got the whole sorry debacle in a nutshell. Personally I wonder

just how much this utterly useless exercise is actually going to cost; because believe me, somewhere down the line, the poor, beleaguered taxpayer will be well up this piffling project’s expense ladder. And that’s fer sure. Another thing that struck me this week was the Boris Johnson/Theresa May water cannon affair. When asked what she thought about the whole suggestion, Ms May remarked that there were a number of issues which had to be considered before any OK was given for their introduction. The main one was - wait for it, ‘ealth an safety issues! Ha, well of course it is. Can you imagine the jobsworth brigade getting their teeth into this one? I bet they find it positively orgasmic. I mean, the mind boggles. Only demonstrators wearing goggles, crash helmets and over 18 can be ‘zapped’. Knee and elbow pads must be made available to all rampaging


mobs. Water pressure must not exceed X amount per square inch. All water must be filtered and tested for impurities before use. I mean the list goes on and on. The poor old operators will be petrified of using the machine in case they finish up in court for GBH. No, I shall be very surprised to see the introduction of water cannon onto the streets of GB. Talking of jobsworths, was it not also interesting to be reliably informed that it took top scientists four days and 30 attempts - in controlled temperature laboratory conditions - to make an explosive from mixing liquids together? (Apparently it has to also be dried to a powder before use.) Not much chance of some toe rag managing that after a few minutes in the loo of a 747. Mmm!

Plots that abuse us.. WELL done! You are so right regarding the people that we are all supporting who abuse our hospitality, plot against the very country that has given them sanctuary, with the determination to change us into the filth and degradation of the countries they have come from. God forbid someone is overheard mentioning Muslims or other ‘vulnerable groups’. It has to fall at the feet of the governments over the years that have put votes before immigration and an urge to suck up to any group of people to enhance their chances of winning... well now they reap the whirlwind, and I’m afraid it’s too late to go back.

A weekly look - and not entirely impartial reaction to the Spanish political scene

SUSANA DIAZ is the only one in the PSOE with her head screwed on the right way. She does not want to be national secretary general and can do a better job for the party as regional president of Andalucia, she said. She is probably right. Andalucia is the PSOE’s votes’ reservoir and the

only autonomy where support has not plummeted: it should be nurtured, not deserted, at this stage. Regardless of the sentiments of nonPSOE voters, Diaz has been good for the party in Andalucia, prompting the present secretary general Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba to believe that she would be good for Spain. Neither his strategy nor tactics have ever proved successful and he is wrong to believe that one size fit alls. Unlike the party grandees, Diaz suspects that what fits Andalucia would not necessarily suit Spain.

Gagging order SPAIN’S judges dislike Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz Gallardon’s Universal Justice law and they loathe the Judicial Power law. Celebrity judges will lose much of their shine but even those hiding their lights under bushels complain that it curtails freedom of speech. They may no longer comment in the media on pending cases although politicians are not subject to the same prohibition, they complain. They are selling themselves short, obviously forgetting that most people turn deaf ears to politicians, whose bellies tend to rumble when they open their mouths, but generally have a healthy respect for - or fear of judges.

Kings in waiting THE abdication arrived at the right time for everyone, with the possible exception of King Juan Carlos. His reasons - new times, new blood, new energy - were valid although according to ‘a courtier’ quoted in the foreign press, the king did not want his son Felipe to wither away

like Prince Charles, waiting to take over the throne as an elderly man. Both the leak and the courtier could be spurious, as the old guard have always reproached both the king and queen for shunning the old ways. There is no court, little intrigue and those close to them keep mum. But the lined face of the Prince of Wales is increasingly melancholy, especially at events also attended by his mother. That could have seemed as good a reason as any for Juan Carlos to call time on his own stint.

Summer respite THE Spanish are not noticeably monarchist although republicans and communists became Juan Carlistas during the Transition to democracy after Franco’s death. Pro-republic demonstrations are possibly a sign of things to come, but meanwhile summer is here and the politically fickle will soon be thinking of other things and reading ¡Hola! or Marca on the beach. But come the autumn Felipe VI must persuade not only republicans but also voters, taxpayers, the unemployed and eviction victims that they are Felipistas.

Pessimistic about England’s chances A FIFA survey has shown that England fans are the second most pessimistic fans at the World Cup with just 4 per cent believing their team will win. Fifty-three per cent of English said they don’t care if England win or lose. Are they right to be pessimistic, and are you surprised so many are not bothered - are you?


EE BROWN, aged 40, owner of Ananda’s bar in Urbanisation La Marina, Costa Blanca, is surprised that over half of those questioned in the survey are not bothered about England’s World Cup result: “I thought people would be more patriotic than that, but I’m not surprised at not many people thinking they will win.” Speaking after England’s first match of the tournament, he said: “I think they may get to the quarters; it was still a good performance despite their first loss.” Billy Anderson from Northern Ireland disagrees: “I was not impressed, they are simply not good enough.

players are overrated and overpaid and they are just not good enough. I think the supporters know that. In the past they have just

been built up by the media.” Bob Wood, 63, from Albanchez said: “I would like England to win, but I am pessimistic whether they will.” Bob who runs boarding kennels and a cattery, added: “It’s sad when you think how much money they earn. I will be watching the games, though.” Proudly wearing his England shirt was Andy Nesbitt, a 50-year-old retiree from Albox. Andy and his wife said: “We would like to see them win, but after watching Holland we don’t think they will. We have had too many disappointments watching England. It doesn’t surprise us that people aren’t too bothered; 1966 (when England won the World Cup) seems a long time ago. Hopefully, we will do better this time.”

T’S that time of year when Brits, after months of rain, are making their getaway to the sun, having buffed and polished their bodies so they’re ‘beachready’. Or not. Believe the media fluff and they’ll have been priming their bodies since the New Year to get rid of that post-Christmas flab, constantly bombarded with images of svelte skinny models to emulate. At the same time, ironically enough, bombarded with reports of increasing obesity in adults and children alike. Take one recent report that’s caused outrage concerning the arrest of the parents of an 11 yearold 15-stone boy. Parents who allegedly believe there’s “nothing they can do about it.” According to the boy’s mother: “His weight isn’t that much of a big deal.

And would overweight children really be better off in care than with their own parents? This is an area where it’s questionable if the police should be involved at all. Doubtless, they themselves would rather not - and are simply a last resort when GPs and Social Services have nowhere else to turn. At least, the spotlight’s now been directed at the problem. And,

hopefully, a much needed wake-up call for those irresponsible parents who sit their kids in front of the TV each day, don’t ensure they take long walks or exercise, and allow them to eat endless junk food. By all means let medical experts, teachers, even Social Services be proactive in dealing with the condition of such a child. But the police? No, I don’t think so.

19 - 25 June 2014 / Costa del Sol



Some ghostly encounters... Mike Walsh Mike, based in Mediterranean Spain, is an international journalist, author and professional writer.

GHOSTS: Some people are attuned to a spiritual plane, some are not.


HEN five successful British writers revealed their belief in ghosts they based their stories on personal experience. Did they open themselves to ridicule? Apparently not. Studies show that 48 per cent of Americans believe in ghosts. Given that Britain is more ghostfriendly, I would expect the British percentage of believers to be higher. I never had a problem coming to terms with apparitions or the supernatural. This may be due to their being self-evident. As a child, mother would say, “it is the living, not the dead who harm you.” An Ordinary Seaman on the MV Grecian, I recall a night time

passage approaching Gibraltar. Entering the tool room far below the waterline two engineers chanced upon an Arab sitting cross-legged on an oil drum. Presuming the youngster to be a stowaway the pair approached. It was then they realised that the figure was an apparition. Horrified, both men fled to the upper deck. I can testify to their extreme shock. Only when the ship reached

London did the captain reveal that the spectre was evident during earlier voyages. It was that of a youngster who, on stowing away in Tripoli, was fatally sealed in a hold. A ship’s lookout will ring the fo’c’sle bell once if a ship is seen to starboard, twice if to port and three times if ahead. Through the stormy night the bell constantly rang accurately as we approached the English Channel.

Spain is for ‘living,’ not simply ‘retiring’ TRADITIONALLY, many of us ‘mature’ people are expected to be shuffled off to a nursing home, then spoon fed semolina by nurses originally trained as prison wardens. Well not any more! Jive Spain dance club was recently referred to as “a bunch of grown up delinquents!” WHAT A COMPLIMENT! At JiveSpain they teach ‘Modern Jive’ five nights every week at venues along the Costa del Sol such as Restaurant TikiTano, El Campanario, El Goleto in Duquesa and Miraflores Restaurant. They dance to music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s as well as to the best new music. Modern Jive is a blend

JIVE SPAIN: Come along and learn modern jive.

of popular Jive moves and the best Salsa moves. Come with or without a partner. Existing dancers always make new ones feel welcome. Fifty per cent of dancers come alone, causing romances to spark.

Newbies can cut out the ‘FIRST LESSON - FREE VOUCHER’ on this page. Lessons last 2½ - 3 hours, admission is €10. They have more than 1,000 members. For more information visit for directions.

Only at dawn was it realised the lookout was nowhere near the bell but was on the upper bridge. Sent to tie the maverick bell the lookout returned to say that it had been disabled the previous night. Who then had been tolling the bell’s warnings? Before retiring to Spain I lived in an old manse. Think of the sitcom, ‘To the Manor Born’ and you have it. The apparition there made no

secret of its presence. We accepted each other and I christened her Casperette. Rarely did I mention her to visitors but many guests were startled by her unexpected presence. One night, using the guest room, a lady colleague stayed overnight. Just as we settled down we were shocked by an atrocious banging on both our bedroom doors. Running to the landing we found it to be empty. Neither of us made a big deal of it. However, I am convinced that Casperette was consumed by jealousy at the presence of my female guest. On several occasions I stayed at Widdecombe Manor in Chagford, Devon. R. D Blackmore’s classic, Lorna Doone, was based on the manor’s 17th Century romantic tragedy. My experiences whilst a guest would make your hair stand on end as they did mine. I have never questioned life on a spiritual plane. Some are attuned to it, some are not.

Spanish dog gives birth to green puppies A PAIR of Spanish dog breeders based in Valladolid, Manuel and Aida Molina, were shocked after one of their dogs gave birth to two green puppies. Dog breeder Aida Molina said: “I thought the puppies were dirty and tried to clean them, but the colour wouldn’t come off.” The animals were smaller and weaker than the other pups in the litter; unfortunately, the female pup died shortly after birth. The cause of death is now being investigated by local vet Daniel Valderde, who added: “There are no other recorded cases of this happening in Spanish scientific literature. I am carrying out virological and bacteriological tests to try and find an answer. Although a possible explanation could be the exposure to a substance called biliverdin, which is found in the placenta.” The surviving male puppy has begun to gradually lose his colouring, although according to experts the animal’s health is not related to its unusual fur. Although unknown in Spain, a similar case was reported in the UK in 2012. A Golden Labrador gave birth to a green puppy. In that case, as appears to be happening to the Spanish pup, the colour faded within a few weeks to leave a more natural colour.

SO often on our radio show we warn you not to use a flexi lead/line. This is a lead which extends and allows the dog to have more running space. The flexi was really designed for those living in apartments to take their pet downstairs to have a pee and do its business. But over the years more and more people are using this type of lead. Only this week a lady was at a road crossing waiting to cross, not paying attention or realising her dog was in the road and not on the pavement. A car came by and ran the dog down, killing it, and continued to drive on. The lady had

Epilepsy in Spain EPILEPSY is one of the most common neurological diseases in Spain. According to the Spanish Society of Neurology (SEN), each year between 12,400 and 22,000 new cases are detected and diagnosed. “Thanks to advances that have occurred in both diagnosis of the disease and pharmacological arsenal, the prognosis of patients is much improved,” said Dr. Juan Mercade Cerda, coordinator of the Epilepsy Study Group of the Spanish Society Neurology (SEN). “In general, patients can control their disease and seizures well with medication, or achieve a spontaneous and prolonged remission not requiring chronic treatment, but it is estimated about 25 per cent of epilepsy is not controlled completely. “It is these patients who require more effort to find new targets for action.” According to data by the White Paper on Epilepsy in Spain, conducted by SEN, epilepsy is one of the diseases affecting the quality of life of patients with 70 per cent believing their illness affects them or their quality of life.

Tips for perfect summer hands, feet and nails

NAILS suffer a little more in summer than winter due to the heat and dry atmosphere, so here are some tips to keep yours healthy throughout the summer season. Hydrate your hands and feet daily. This is the first commandment when dealing with nails, be they finger or toe. Use a good moisturiser and massage it in really well all over your hands and feet, it will reach the nails in good time. Oil your nails. Nails are made up of dead cells and contain a lot of keratin and, as such, it is essential to keep them well oiled if you want them to grow evenly and strongly. Pay attention to your cuticles. Your hands and feet will automatically look much better if you push back your cuticles - just remember to oil them first or you may hurt yourself. File your nails frequently.

PERFECT NAILS: Should be almond shaped this summer.

Follow the line of the finger or toe and always file in the same direction, try and avoid filing the sides of your nails too much, it will make them weaker. The fashion this summer is for finger-nails to be almond shaped and not too long - gone are the rectangular talons of last summer. When painting your nails remember to apply a base coat as this will make your nail varnish last much longer, also if you apply

colour directly to the nail it often makes it look yellow when you remove the colour. Another fashion this

summer seems to be texture - not just colour. The ultimate trendy look consists of having matching colour palettes with

different textures. These can be achieved by using a contrast of matt and shiny. Paint one of your nails a different, but complimentary, colour from the rest of them. It makes for a funky look that has been on the catwalks for some months now. Match your nail colours to your lipstick. It may seem old fashioned but that look is back.

MALARIA: Spread by infected female mosquitoes.

GM mosquitoes could help wipe out malaria A GENETICALLY modified mosquito could be key to wiping out malaria. The disease is spread by infected female mosquitoes which pass on the disease as they bite humans. Now, British scientists at London’s Imperial College say they could have found a way to wiping out the disease by developing a genetically

modified species that produces just male offspring. The researchers looked to genetics to disrupt the breeding of mosquitoes so fewer females are produced, which should see mosquitoes die out within a few generations. In lab tests, they modified mosquitoes to produce sperm that will only create males.

What are BB creams and what do they do? EVERYONE is talking about BB creams but what exactly are they? Correctors? Moisturisers? Base coats? The BB in BB cream stands for blemish balm which basically means that it corrects and moisturises at the same time while diminishing the appearance of any blemishes and imperfections. They make your skin luminous but not too made up - they are the new ‘must have’ in any make-up bag. The original BB creams were used by German dermatologists to calm and soothe the skin after a facial peeling. From there they went to Korea where celebrities converted them into what they are today - a multipurpose cream which saves women all over the world a lot of time out of their beauty regimes.

The effects of BB cream are many: they correct the micro-surface of the skin eliminating imperfections, they hydrate the top layer of skin, they illuminate thanks to their high vitamin C content, they give the skin a matt look to make it look more uniform, they feed the skin with natural ingredients and they protect it from the sun. They really are an all-in-one miracle! BB CREAMS: A multi purpose miracle.

1941: Hitler invades the Soviet Union. The German army takes Joseph Stalin by surprise when it starts its advance on Moscow. 1945: American troops take the island of Okinawa. The Japanese island falls to the US after a long and bloody battle. 1953: John Christie hangs for his wife’s murder. The killer is sentenced to hang for murdering his wife and then hiding her under the floorboards of their Notting Hill home. 1975: Missing Earl found guilty of murder. In his absence Lord Lucan is found guilty, by an inquest jury, of murdering his 29-year-old nanny - he has never been found. 1976: Westerners are evacuated from Beirut. Hundreds of Americans and British are taken to safety in neighbouring Syria by the US military following the murder of their ambassador. 1978: Cricketer Botham makes history. Ian Botham becomes the first cricketer in the history of the game to score a century and take eight wickets in one innings of a Test match. 1980: Gun battle at the British embassy in Iraq.

You see, women are like fires, like flames. Some women are like candles, bright and friendly. Some are like single sparks, or embers, like fireflies for chasing on summer nights. Some are like campfires, all light and heat for a night and willing to be left after. Some women are like hearth fires, not much to look at but underneath they are all warm, red coal that burns a long, long while.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) When your feelings are so positive, which they should be now, it is hard to remember that they have ever been any other way. You may have a plan in mind for a new activity to get the adrenalin flowing. How much more enjoyable, though, to find someone to share this with you. Book that course and maybe you will meet them there. LEO (July 24 - August 23) After a few recent excesses, bad habits can prove hard to shake off. Remember that any time of the year is a good time to make a fresh start. Don't put off looking after your health any more than you would put off stashing a cheque in the bank. Use it or lose it? You know it makes sense. Think about combining health with a holiday.

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK: Having closed a chapter already this year, it now seems that another is set to close, too. There is a kind of momentum to all this, pushed on by Jupiter. You have control but only if you are flexible and expect nothing to be black and white.

June 19: Boris Johnson, 50. Politician. Popularly known as BoJo this mayor of London was the editor of the Spectator, a weekly British conservative magazine, from 1999 to 2005.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) It happens that energy is sometimes low. Take the chance to read up on why this could be. You may think that you know it all, but in this world there is no chance of that. Maybe you are out of touch generally, or just out of touch with your own needs. Give building your strength priority. How much better you will cope with extra energy.

This can be good but can also be overdone. You know how good you can feel. Increase this by simply not accepting second-best treatment.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) With so much going on, you are in danger of burning yourself to a frazzle. You won't realise until you have done it, so make a point of getting some peace and quiet, preferably both of them at the same time. Relax and don't even think about things that are unchangeable. Time will sort out most things for you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Your tendency to see yourself through the eyes of others can lead you to undervalue your worth. This could see you going pear-shaped, emotionally. Try not to believe everything that you are told because there are always at least two ways of seeing things. Be positive. You are capable of so much. Take care of your needs on a daily basis.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Leave nothing to chance when it comes to your health. Although you are feeling good now you will soon have problems because you are more concerned with others than yourself.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Concentrate on your physical needs this week and spend much more time on yourself. There will be plenty of opportunities to look after others when you are feeling 100 per cent

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) There are so many things to do or try that you should be spoiled for choice. No, don't settle down in front of the TV. Get out, make some friends and aim to learn something new every day. That may only be the name of your neighbour on the bus but it counts. You are charming and urbane, so don't keep it all to yourself.

yourself. Stay in control of day-to-day plans. . AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) Keep up the pace this week so that you have plenty to discuss and 'write home about’. With your mind so active, you are capable of doing in a day what would normally take a week. By-pass those who try to slow you down. There will be plenty of time to be a plod later. PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Others may be changing their minds, and generally being a bit of a pain. That may irritate you but it is no reason to change your plans. Both you and your colleagues will be glad that you did in the longer term. You may need to find some peace and space for yourself come the weekend.

He rose to fame in the 80’s with Wham! and then pursued a successful solo career releasing albums like Faith which rocketed him to mega-fame.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Looking back over the past few months you will realise that fine adjustments are needed. Both your working life and diet need attention, so be determined that progress made will continue apace. Certainly, you have no qualms about facing any problems straight on. You thrive on responsibility and there is no shortage of that at the moment. TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) Now that you are feeling much better, it will be tempting to put aside your healthy eating and exercise, but if you remember what a difference it makes it would be silly to stop now.

WE all do it and have done it since the day we were born, we just don’t think about it very often as it happens automatically - in most cases. By the end of our life we will have slept for around a third of it. Here are a few facts about sleep that you may not know: 1. There are many legends based on sleep paralysis. This is when a person wakes up but cannot move therefore blurring the line between the conscious and the unconscious; in this state some people claim to see demons 1 and most people say they felt they were not alone. 2. Sleepwalking is evolving. People used to just sleepwalk but now they can also sleep text, sleep e-mail and some people even sleep eat! Doctors say that these actions are so ingrained in our subconscious that they cross the boundaries between sleep and wakefulness.

A boy’s troubled story BOOKS

BRITISH expat Carol Macfie Lange is hoping for success with the publication of her debut novel, Invisible Child, which tells the harrowing and troubled story of a boy’s survival in Franco’s Spain. Isandro is just 13-years-old when his parents are denounced and Franco’s Nationalists take them by force from their village home. The boy’s unusually keen

sense of hearing warns him of the soldiers’ approach and his father just has time to hide him. One of the attackers returns stealthily and Isandro watches him through a crack in the floor boards. It is a face he will never forget. Aone and distrustful of the villagers, the boy escapes to a cave in the high Sierra of the wild Alpujarra mountains. His survival, his journey into

3. Counting sheep doesn’t work. This idea is an ancient one and the theory behind it is that the repetitive action will bore your brain into submission; unfortunately anyone who has tried it will know it’s just too boring to work. A better idea is to imagine something relaxing. 4. Sleep deprivation can be dangerous. Pulling an all-nighter can make even the most equanimous of us a little cranky the next day. Do this for a few days and you could suffer hallucinations and even die. 5. Smell will not wake you up. This is the basic premise behind safety equipment like smoke alarms. Your body’s ability to react to smell is almost nil - unlike sounds, smells won’t wake us up.

Alcohol can even worsen some conditions like sleep apnea or insomnia. 8. People have been theorising about sleep forever. The first recorded theories of sleep come from the Greek writer Alcmaeon whose theory stated that sleep happened when the flow of blood was going towards our core and we would wake up when the flow was reversed. A hundred years later Aristotle thought we needed sleep to digest and would wake up when finished. 9. Our bodies are programmed for two sleeps a day. Until the 17th century humans had two sleeps - the first at nightfall and lasting until about 1am at which time we would get up and eat, read, pray or even visit friends. We would then go back to sleep from around 4am to dawn.

7. Alcohol won’t help you sleep. It might make you drowsy and help you fall asleep but the quality of sleep you will get is terrible as you will not achieve REM sleep which is essential for the brain to rest.

10. Nobody knows why we sleep. Modern science hasn’t progressed much further than Alcmaeon or Aristotle - there are many theories but they are just that. Sleep is considered essential for the brain to get some rest but that is as much as modern medicine has worked out.

Costa del Sol’s best guide to local restaurants


Four after dinner drinks everyone should try

JAGERMEISTER: Not just for college students.

THEY not only round off a meal to perfection but they could have some heath benefits too digestifs are the way to end a meal on a healthy note. Dessert isn’t the only after dinner option, known as ‘digestifs,’ some drinks actually

can help you digest your meal more efficiently. These drinks have their origins in the 10 and 11th centuries when people used herbs and spices for their healing properties as well as their tastes. Here are a few digestifs to get you started.

Use a microwave correctly MICROWAVES have a really bad reputation for making everything soggy, tasteless and zapping all the nutrition out of food, but here are some tricks you can use to avoid these pitfalls. Choose your dish carefully. Steam your veggies. Nuke your meals at a low setting. Stir frequently. Defrost as a last resort.

Chartreuse. This is a classic. It is sweet and spicy and tastes vaguely of aniseed and fennel both thought to aid digestion. French monks first came up with the secret recipe and it remains the same to this day. Jagermeister. Not just for college students to get slaughtered on, this drink dates back to the 1600’s and contains ginger and cinnamon which can help digestion. Fernet Branca. This liquorice tasting drink is a little bitter but it contains more than 100 herbs and spices, among them cardamom which is a well

known stomach soothing agent. Zwack. This is almost the national drink in Hungary, where it comes from; the 200-year-old recipe boasts liquorice, cardamom and clove - all of which could boost the production of digestive enzymes. All of these drinks should be served in small portions in order to gain any benefit from them.

Five different side dishes to boost your summer barbecues WE can’t live on meat alone, even barbecued meat which is more delicious for having been cooked over charcoal. Variety is the spice of life so include some veggie dishes to make you feel healthier and provide your palate with a necessary change of scene. Here are a few suggestions on what to make to accompany the perfect summer barbie. Tortellini and broccoli salad - this combination is not only cool and refreshing but also healthy and may even help protect men from prostate cancer according to the University of Illinois. Grilled mixed vegetables - throw on a colourful mix of anything you have to hand and don’t forget that the more colourful the healthier; the mix of different vegetables will give you a wider range of nutrients. Baked beans - always a staple of the summer barbecue, you can jazz these up with different flavours or simply drain off the excess sauce and put them in a salad with some fresh

Pink Floyd Tribute in Mijas By Pete Woodall


O celebrate 50 years of the British psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd there will be a tribute performance on Friday, June 27, in Mijas Auditorium. A sound and light musical extravaganza will mirror the elaborate live shows that made Pink Floyd a global musical phenomenon, still followed by millions today. Dedicated to the masters of the concept album, this tribute performance by Andy Claridge and Steve Nelson has grown to include drummer Paul Skelton and vocalist Denirichar (Denise) Delay. The expanded Mijas concert incorporates new lasers and a more powerful sound system, designed to boost the presence, clarity and quality of the music rather than the volume. It is

the product of months if not years of hard work and rehearsal. Anyone who has seen their previous shows, especially the sell-out Pink Floyd tribute at the Salon Varietes in Fuengirola, will tell you this is a great opportunity to experience the authentic progressive psychedelic

‘allegedly’ LSD-inspired rock sound, unique to

Pink Floyd. The two-and-a-half hour tribute starts after the sun sets and is centred on the album, Dark Side of the Moon, with extracts from The Wall, p-u-l-s-e and now two additional tracks from the double album Delicate Sound of Thunder. Dark Side of the Moon recorded at

Abbey Road in 1973, sold over 50 million copies, remaining in the charts from 1973-1988 for a record-breaking 741 weeks; it is recognised as one of the most successful albums ever. Doors to the 900-seat open-air Mijas Auditorium open at 8pm. €12 and €20 tickets are available online at and from the six local business venues listed online. Tickets on the night are €15 and €25. Tel: 952 661 819. Parking for €1 is available in the multistorey car park just below Mijas Town Hall and there is a €1 shuttle bus for those with walking difficulties unable to make the walk to the auditorium, where there is a bar selling sandwiches, an authentic New York City hotdog stand and toilet facilities. All you have to do is kick back and wait for the goose bumps.

AH, holiday - at long last. Having been as busy as a boisterous bee, some tranquil time was sorely needed by Ted the Tourist and his family: wife Tina, and twins, Trix and Tony. They had booked Thailand, but with the coup and curfew they thought better of it and changed it to Spain. Tina had notions of quaint little tapas bars on endless nocturnal outings, Trix and Tony appeased with games on their parents’ phones. So she had packed her entire wardrobe and booked a nice little hotel, apparently ‘near the city centre’. After much ado, and darting through a jam-packed Heathrow Airport, they made their flight with seconds to spare. All was

going swimmingly, all luggage accounted for, until they reached the car rental queue - an unmoving feast of resigned frustration. Finally the family reached their hotel, La Vista del Mar Lejano, which appeared to be more in a suburb than centre, to talk to other guests who had got a better internet deal. Tina stormed off to their room in a huff to unpack, only to find her t-shirts and tunics marinating in a pool of what used to be the contents of her toiletry bottles. Promptly, Ted was sent off to find a dry cleaners, which he managed to do by showing the bemused locals the terrible stains on his wife’s clothing. A kindly woman finally understood and pointed out the nearest dry cleaners, in town, on the map in his guide book, ‘The trodden path.’ Feeling pleased with his navigational skills yet exhausted from the walk, Ted decided to wait out the cleaning in a café. Upon paying, he found that neither his credit card nor his sterling cash was accepted. The bar owner pointed to a cash point opposite and off Ted trot, the owner’s

A few weeks after returning, Ted will find that the credit card charged an extortionate amount for the withdrawal, only trumped by the bill for the phones, to which the twins were glued for the duration of the trip. Walking back, Ted is feeling increasingly stressed. A few minutes into the long trek, one of his flip-flops flips.

Bare roof top and rock Dick Handscombe

Gardening Corner By Dick Handscombe Spain’s best known expat gardening author about to start his 26th winter cut back.

I HAVE visited two types of new properties with major gardening challenges, but great potential, this week. The first was a house on a 600 square metre plot cut out of a mountainside so that the back boundary is a shear wall of newly blasted and trimmed rock and likewise half the length of the two sides of the plot, and the level plot is a slab of rock with no earth. But the views from the front of the house are great middistance sea views. The second was a penthouse 100 square metre apartment with 400 square metres of terraces surrounded by metre high solid walls on three sides and four metre high walls

APARTMENT TERRACE: A good opportunity to create somethin on the fourth. Obviously a similar challenge to the house except that there are strong afternoon winds from the sea on every day of the year. Again the views were great, but 360 rather than 120 degree views from the house. In two directions was a

mid-distant perennial herb covered mountainside, in another direction mature trees with an interesting sea view through a gap and on the fourth side a view over the tiled roofs of an old town centre. The two properties have similar gardening challenges and opportunities and a good start point would be to buy and study the

Each have the need to mix up good planting mediums using bags of a good compost, bags of worm compost and sacks of dried sheep or goat manure from a local agricultural cooperative.

Since unglazed terracotta containers dry out quickly plastic containers painted in attractive colours or placed in terracotta containers with pleasing designs are called for. Also growing tables would be useful for growing collections of succulents, culinary herbs and vegetables. The rock walled rear garden of the house and the two side terraces with high back walls of the apartment can be developed in traditional patio styles separated from the more open front garden and terrace by evergreen leaved and citrus fruit trees in large containers. As neither property has the benefit of the natural shade of mature trees, the natural shade at various times of the day needs to be established before fixing awnings, planning any plants and indeed where to locate a number of tables

and chairs. Beyond that climber glad gazebos could be considered alongside the walls or free standing. Re plants, it would make sense to only use drought

resistant plants from day one to reduce watering needs and losses during the hottest weeks of the year. Naturally in both situations drip irrigation

systems can be used, but the tuning of a system to water thirsty and drought resistant plants is not easy. With careful pre-planning and dedication both owners

will, I am sure, end up with delightful living spaces.

Common queries regarding proxy votes ALL communities throughout Spain have to hold general meetings, to elect their president, approve their community budget and vote on different issues. Invariably some owners cannot attend the meetings and choose to vote by proxy; this is where one person delegates their voting rights to another who votes in their absence. Article 15:1 of the Law of Horizontal Property regulates this situation as follows: the attendance at a general meeting of owners will be in person, or by legal or voluntary representation, an authorisation in writing signed by the owner

Community Law Corner By José Luis Navarro Solicitor and Property Administrator for Intercala Administration with Pete Woodall, Woody’s Los Boliches

being sufficient to certify this. Fairly straightforward but from this statement all manner of questions arise. Here are some of the most common: 1. Can a proxy be given to someone who is not an owner? Yes, the proxy can be given to anyone an owner chooses. 2. What is the correct

documentation for a proxy? The law only requires the proxy to be in writing and signed by the owner. 3. Would a proxy by fax, email or a photocopy of a signed document be acceptable? Yes, the law does not demand to see the original document nor does it specify a format for a proxy. Generally speaking communities

Information missing on most real-estate websites in Madrid

MOST real-estate agencies in Madrid omit obligatory information on their websites. According to an advertising control campaign launched by the Community of Madrid, nine out of every 10 websites for rentals do not provide information about the final price of their services. A third of the websites include questionable clauses, including disclaimers. The advertising control campaign looked at 28 real-estate companies, 17 of which are based in Madrid and 11 in other municipalities. More than half - 57.7 per cent - of the websites do not comply with

the obligation to provide their clients with all the information required by law. Fourteen of them failed to provide their value added tax identification number, eight did not give their registered name, while four had no information about their corporate address. It was also discovered that 92.3 per cent of the house advertisements found online lacked a proper floorplan. Furthermore, 11.54 per cent of the websites contained erroneous information. In the first five months of 2014, 50 complaints were made to consumer services.

should interpret the law according to modern-day practices. 4. Is a proxy acceptable when sent by email but not signed? Provided the email address coincides with the one for the owner in the community’s data base then it should be accepted. It is a criminal offence for someone to claim a proxy and vote if they are not authorised to do so by an owner. 5. Are proxies sent by WhatsApp or as text message acceptable? No, although they could be considered acceptable for the same reasons as emails and faxes; however, they are not acceptable because they are not printable and the law stipulates that proxies are to be in writing and (Article19:4) kept for five years. 6. Is there a limit to the number of proxies a person can hold? In some

associations one person cannot hold more than a given number of proxies. However, at a community meeting there is no limit as to how many proxies one person can hold. 7. Is a debtor to the community, who holds a proxy for another owner who is not a debtor, allowed to vote at a community meeting? Yes, as a debtor they cannot vote themselves but they can vote on behalf of the other owner. 8. How many votes does one person have who holds proxies from several owners? They have one vote for every debt-free owner that they represent. Where an agreement by double majority is required, that is, an agreement made by the majority of owners, owning a majority (as a percentage) of the property that forms the whole community, then

the proxy also represents the voting coefficients of the properties as well. 9. Is a proxy vote valid where the issue demands unanimity from all the owners? Yes, proxies count as if the actual owner were present. 10. Is the voting at a general meeting valid when one person’s proxies outweigh the voting power of the other owners present or represented? The law does not prohibit this possibility and the vote is valid. Owners should be aware of giving a proxy to someone who could easily vote with their own interests in mind and not for the benefit of the owner or the community. As always we the solicitors for Intercala administration strongly recommend our readers to avail themselves of competent advice regarding all matters concerning the law.

CHEAPER TO BUY: Second-hand property.

Second-hand home prices continue to decrease GOOD news for prospective home buyers willing to invest their money in Spain. According to the Spanish real-estate website Idealista, the second-hand home prices in Spain decreased by 0.2 per cent in May. The average price is now €1,649 per square metre. This represents a year-onyear decrease of 5.7 per cent, compared to May 2013. Nevertheless, prices have increased in the Balearic Islands and Catalonia.

Home prices in those autonomous communities have increased by 0.4 per cent. On the other hand, in Andalucia and the Community of Madrid prices have remained stable. The Basque Country is still the most expensive autonomous community in Spain, in real-estate terms. There the average home price is €2,795 per square metre.

How to love Ryanair (and other low-cost airlines) Peter Fieldman London-born journalist and author, Peter spends his time between Paris and Madrid. His novel ‘1066 The Conquest’ available on Amazon or


Michael O'Leary credit

ICHAEL O’LEARY, boss of the people’s favourite airline everyone loves to hate, has finally succumbed to the mounting criticism of his company’s policies. This is good news for expats. While some of the bad publicity and complaints have been more than justified, others are unfounded and often due to passengers failing to understand the terms and conditions or navigate the internet. As a regular user of the low-cost companies I have experienced both the good and bad sides and the changes are welcome. Both Ryanair and easyJet’s policy of not allotting seats was doomed to fail. It caused log jams at the gates as well as boarding the aircraft. Too much time was wasted getting everyone in their seats while people struggled to lift heavy cabin baggage into the lockers. This is a consequence of the policy of charging for hold baggage so people attempt to cram everything into hand baggage which results in a shortage of locker space. One piece of advice is never to put your hand baggage in a locker too far behind your seat. I once managed to get a front seat but the cabin staff took my small case as there was no space and put it in a locker further back.

BUDGET TRAVEL: Travellers have good as well as bad experiences. Since people always jump up ready to get off within seconds of the aircraft coming to a halt, there was no way to force my way through the cabin so I had to wait for everyone to shuffle past before being able to retrieve it. Having to pay extra to reserve a seat might annoy some passengers but they have a choice and so far I have always been happy with my unpaid seat. On a European flight it does not really make much difference where one sits especially if there is hold baggage to wait for on arrival. At long last Ryanair is allowing a second piece of hand baggage. I never understood this idea since it made no difference to the aircraft’s weight. This is good news for female passengers who normally carry handbags and for those with computers or

cameras. It will end the sight of travellers grovelling on the floor at the last minute using their knees to squeeze items into their already bulging hand baggage. Priority boarding is another extra but hardly worth it now that seats are allocated. I remember on one flight gleefully watching as priority passengers were allowed through the gate first, only to end up on a bus as the aircraft did not have a slot. By the time everyone got on the bus the priority passengers were squashed in the back and when the bus reached the aircraft they were last to get off. Navigating the internet sites and printing out boarding cards can be daunting at first and the cause of many complaints. They are designed by clever computer programmers to catch the unwary with all the options, products and services the airlines offer and would like you to purchase. But once you know where to click, it is very efficient and nice Mr Leary will now not punish passengers for errors. The other major problem, which leads to confusion, if not passenger revolt, is weight. Passengers always complain about having to pay for hold baggage and other items. But what travellers should look for is the total cost of the journey and not each item, and the low-cost airlines are unbeatable with or without the extra costs. So compare the final price before complaining. Too often I have watched passengers open their cases by the check-in desk to remove belongings to reduce the weight

or try unsuccessfully to push oversized hand baggage into the holders provided, which then get stuck. True, these measures can be strict and I have seen some very irate passengers being obliged to pay extra on the spot. However, the terms and conditions are clearly spelt out and if they are respected, travellers have no problems. Perhaps what travellers detest most is leaving and arriving late or not at all. Of course, any airline can experience delays and cancelled flights but I believe the lowcost airlines generally have an excellent record. That said I have an ongoing claim for a six-hour delay at Pisa for a flight to Madrid last June on a glorious sunny day, which according to Ryanair was due to fog (the company is Irish). I am still awaiting the outcome from an Irish court. Nevertheless, the fact is millions of travellers regularly use low-cost airlines, which take them where they want to go in modern aircraft at very reasonable prices. They have been a boon to the travel industry, opening up routes to a large number of desirable locations providing considerable economic benefits to the airports, resorts, cities and countries concerned while enabling expats, tourists and business passengers to visit places they previously might not have been able to afford or reach with ease. So just take time to read the terms and conditions carefully and enjoy your flight. (c) peter fieldman

would love to hear from you. We do not put our dogs to sleep - no matter how old, they are safe with us. For day to day needs and to pay for veterinary care, we much appreciate the support we receive. We desperately need items to sell on our market stall to help raise funds and are happy to come and collect. So if you are having a clear-out, please contact us on 605 227 155.

THERE are vanity number plates, then there are vanity number plates. If you have the cash to spare - £10 million (€12.5 million) to be exact - then you could have the racing fan’s dream plate of F1. That is the price tag put on the number plate in the UK six years after Yorkshire based owner Afzal Kahn bought it for a trifling £440,000 (€550,000). At the moment the plate is registered on a Bugatti Veyron hypercar. The plate is valued at 10 times the price of the car. Apparently Kahn has already turned down an offer of £8.5 million for the plate from a potential buyer in the Middle East. Kahn bought the plate from Essex County Council which had it registered to a Volvo S80 used by its chairman. The council sold it off to raise funds to train young drivers. At the time it was a record price for a private sale.

MG doubles 2013 sales MG has been reborn and new life breathed into the marque since the demise of MG Rover. Following the brand’s sale to the Chinese it has started a programme of expansion based round its Longbridge assembly plant. MG has sustained dramatic growth in 2014 as the Midlands based manufacturer doubled 2013 total sales volumes in just the first five months of the year. MG’s 90th anniversary year continues to be one of unparalleled success for the iconic marque, said the company. Figures recently released revealed that MG once again leads growth for the UK automotive industry. It posted a 1,754 per cent increase month on month, and an exceptional 842 percentage increase year to date compared to this time last year in cars sold.

SUCCESSFUL: MG3 supermini. Sales for the iconic manufacturer continue to improve as MG has posted recording-breaking sales every month so far in 2014, including the best Q1 sales in the company’s history. This year is already MG’s best ever sales year, surpassing

previous best sales success in 2012 when 782 units were sold. Success has been put down to the recent launch of the MG3 supermini and expansion of the MG6 diesel powertrain family, with a new 129g, 350 Nm performance diesel recently added. Voted by customers as the winner of Best Handling and sixth overall Best Car to Own in the 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Awards, the MG6 is already a favourite with MG owners for its drivability, affordability and exceptionally high levels of equipment included as standard. Now the MG6 is even more appealing as all specifications are available from just £15,455 to £19,995 in the UK. The MG3 is priced from £8,399 to £9,999 in the UK.

Audi unveil revamped A7 Sportback AUDI has spared no effort in revising the A7 Sportback. The spacious five-door coupe is now even more powerful and attractive - thanks to new engine configurations, new transmissions, new headlights, tail lights and new infotainment systems. The new A7 Sportback combines the emotional appeal and sportiness of a coupe with the comfort of a sedan and the functional benefits of an Avant, says the German manufacturer. Back when the A7 Sportback debuted in 2010, Audi was aiming to set new standards in car design, embracing an athletic aesthetic and elegance in grand style. Its long engine hood, sporty, flowing C-pillars and the sharply dropping rear end were designed to create a dynamic overall impression. The revised version of the five-door model, measuring 4.97

A7 SPORTBACK: The spacious five-door coupe is now even more powerful and attractive. metres in length, now has additional striking, sporty

features. The most striking changes are to the Singleframe grille, bumpers, tailpipes and headlights. LED technology is now standard; upon request, Audi can supply Matrix LED headlights, which light the road optimally without causing glare for other road users. Combined with the Matrix LED headlights, dynamic turn signals are also installed at the front; they come standard at the rear. The body of the new

Audi A7 Sportback consists primarily of aluminium and high-tech steel grades. It is extraordinarily lightweight and designed for maximum comfort in terms of noise. The cargo space under the long, electrically driven trunk lid has a base capacity of 535 litres. When the rear seat backs are folded down it grows to 1,390 litres. The sporty style of the exterior is echoed in the car’s interior. The dominant element is the horizontal line

surrounding the driver and passenger. The dashboard gives an impression of lightness and elegance. The new interior materials, including the aluminium/Beaufort walnut inlay and Valcona leather, are impressive for their finish. The colour palette has been redesigned, offering five colour options even for the seats. The new Audi A7 Sportback is confident and relaxed to drive. The front seats can be optionally equipped with ventilation and massage functions, and there are four seat versions to choose from. The MMI radio operating system comes standard; it can be supplemented as an option with a head-up display that projects all important information onto the windshield. To start out, Audi is offering the new A7 Sportback with a choice of five powerful and highly efficient engines: two petrol and three diesel units. Their power rating ranges from 160kW (218hp) to 245kW (333hp), and all of them

comply with the Euro 6 emission standard. Many aspects of the 3.0 TDI clean diesel with 200kW (272hp) have been newly developed. In the ‘ultra’ version with 160kW (218hp) and front-wheel drive, the three-litre V6 uses an average of just 4.7 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. The top-of-the-range engine, the 4.0 TFSI, is available in the Audi S7 Sportback. It delivers 331kW (450hp) of power and uses innovative COD (cylinder on demand) technology. The 3.0 TDI biturbo clean diesel, which delivers 235kW (320hp), works with an eight-speed tiptronic transmission; all other engine configurations have a sevenspeed S tronic transmission. The Audi drive select dynamic handling system is standard. Options include dynamic steering, two sport suspension versions and adaptive air suspension; on the S7 Sportback, the air suspension has a firmer setup. The new Audi A7 Sportback will begin arriving at dealerships later this year. Its base price in Germany will be €51,300. The Audi S7 Sportback is available starting at €82,300.

Rolls-Royce in epic charity rally A ROLLS-ROYCE Phantom Coupé stopped off in Edinburgh as part of an epic 3,000-mile journey from Miami to Ibiza that promises to

raise a six-figure sum for charity. Rolls-Royce owner, Garreth Wood, founder of the Edinburgh-based Speratus Group, his wife Nicola and schoolfriend William Rhind are taking part in the Gumball 3000 Rally, a star-studded event that sees an array of the world’s most exotic, luxurious and often outlandishly decorated cars cover remarkable distances in just seven days. Mr and Mrs Wood have taken the opportunity to

raise vital funds and awareness for ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’, a charity that has granted the wishes of over 14,500 children suffering from life-threatening illnesses since it was founded in 1990. Throughout their journey they will perform 50 Random Acts of Kindness with Garreth’s company promising to donate £2,000 (€2,500) for every act, the Gumball Foundation will then match the money raised. Every penny of

the £200,000 (€250,000) is committed to sending a group of children and their helpers on a journey to Lapland to meet Father Christmas. In preparation for the rally, the couple has commissioned a specialist wrapping company to decorate the car in a red chrome and black velvet finish complete with a Scottish flag motif on the boot. “It’s a great honour to support ‘When you wish upon a Star’, said Garreth.

Lampert accepts Challenge The sunshine island of Tenerife was certainly to Moritz Lampert’s liking as the German claimed his second win in three weeks on the Challenge Tour. Lampert was among a high-class field of players from the European Tour’s second tier, who headed to Tecina Golf for the Fred Olsen Challenge de España, just a 40-minute ferry ride from the Tenerife mainland. The 22-year-old started the

last day two strokes adrift of Italian Matteo Delpodio but carded a superb final-round 63 to come charging through the field and win by two shots from Belgian Hugues Joannes. In addition to playing the par-71 Donald Steel layout, the international field also had the privilege of staying and enjoying the facilities at the nearby Hotel Jardin Tecina. The venue won widespread praise from the Win a round of golf, dinners for 2 at recommended restaurants & more...

His only bogey of the day at the sixth was sandwiched between further gains at the fifth, seventh, eighth and ninth holes. With Delpodio struggling, Lampert took a firm grip on proceedings when he holed a huge putt for birdie on the 11th green and his ninth birdie of the day at the penultimate hole allowed him to close out victory in comfortable fashion.

La Sala Group’s super talented shareholders AS World Cup Fever grips the globe, La Sala Group is proud to offer its support to two of its super talented shareholders, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Raheem Sterling who are both currently making a splash in Brazil as they play their first World Cup for the England squad. Raheem Sterling, 19, is having his first taste of competing in the World Cup. The Jamaican born winger, who plays for Liverpool, has impressed the football fraternity with a fine first performance in England’s opening match against Italy, and has been touted as arguably the best player in Roy Hodgson’s squad. The young player, who grew up with Wembley stadium in view from his London home, is disciplined about his game, and his dedication is about to pay off. His club will reputedly double his weekly wages when he returns from Brazil.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain

Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, 20, who is currently signed to Arsenal, is also doing England proud in Brazil. He has been hampered by a knee injury, but he’s expected to be fit for play in time for the England squad’s all-important match against Uruguay tonight (Thursday). Oxlade made a name for himself as the youngest English goal scorer in UEFA Champions League history by scoring twice in his first three games for the club. Nicknamed ‘The Ox’ for his physical tenacity and powerful game, his debut in the England squad was in a friendly against Norway in 2012. As La Sala UK prepares for kick off in Chigwell, Essex in September 2014, for Sterling and Chamberlain, it looks like success in business as well as on pitch is all but guaranteed.
