ISSUE NO. 1555 // 23 - 29 APRIL 2015



When justice fails Exclusive interview by Steve Walsh A MOTHER has been left distraught after the two men who tortured and killed her grown-up son were convicted of manslaughter and not murder. After agreeing a plea bargain, Dubliners Wayne Lennon, 38, and Brian McConville, 30, admitted punching, kicking and stabbing Paul Fether, 31, to death. They were sentenced to 11 years each by a Malaga court, not the life sentences that his mother Beryl Fether, 67, felt they deserved. Beryl came to Spain in midApril, not for a holiday, but to find answers and justice for her son who was “brutally tortured and killed” at the hands of his ‘friends’ in the apartment he shared with his girlfriend in Benalmadena on April 21, 2010. The coroner’s report showed that Paul, who moved to Spain

from Ongar in Essex, UK, died over a period of one-and-a-half hours as a result of beatings combined with 44 stab wounds caused by various implements. Clutching a photograph of her

dead son in one hand and a folder full of court paperwork in the other, quietly-spoken Beryl (pictured) explained her frustration over the court trial that never was. Turn to Page 4

TOWIE bling set for the Costa! LA CALA de Mijas is about to get a touch of Essex bling as TOWIE star Elliott Wright has confirmed to Euro Weekly News that he has taken over one of the coast’s best-known venues. “I’m keen to get going,” he said, “I’m really looking forward to the new project.” Elliott, who will be spreading his time between the restaurant and his UK TV career, remarked: “If it was up to me, I would open it in June, but that’s up to the builders and how fast they can get it finished.” So far the theme is being kept a secret and the name has yet to be decided. Old Mijas Playa freehold owner, Gerry Coleman, said: “He is totally revamping it. It is fantastic news for La Cala, it will bring

Promising summer bookings THE Costa del Sol is gaining ground against international competitors for summer holiday bookings from the UK, Germany, France, Italy and other parts of Spain. While tourists from abroad are reportedly choosing the Costa instead of other sun and sea destinations due to the stability and relative safety it offers, increased

confidence in the economy in Spanish homes is leading more national tourists to book up too. A total of 920,214 visitors stayed at Costa hotels between November and February, giving signs of hope for what is to come this summer. Confederation of Spanish Hotels and Tourist Accommodation (Cehat) president Juan Molas stated that the summer is certain to be a

good one as bookings are already up by 7 per cent compared to this time last year with the UK and other European countries confirming 2 to 3 per cent increases. Molas added that travel agents had reported a 20 per cent increase in Spanish tourists over the Easter period, which could well be a sign of increased last-minute bookings to come.

More building THREE construction projects for homes in Las Lagunas and La Cala have been approved by Mijas Council and are expected to provide work for local builders.

Firstly the Romans, and later the Muslims adapted the typical design of the popular house to their needs, making the home centre on an inner courtyard (or patio), normally with a fountain in the middle and often a well to collect rainwater. The Muslims made further adjustments, giving the house an entrance from the street which passed through a porch, and filling the courtyard with plants to give the sensation of freshness. A visit is indeed worth the effort, but bear in mind, nearly all the patios close between 2pm and 6pm. For more details and routes, see the website at

No justice for murdered son, says mother From Front Page “If it was in England, they would have got life for murder,” she said. “I was told to expect a five-day trial, where witnesses would testify and all the evidence would come out against them. But on the first day in court, they were told to apologise and they would get a reduced sentence for manslaughter instead of murder. It’s not fair. It’s not justice!” Beryl made it her mission to find out as much as she could from Paul’s old friends and colleagues. She had been kept in the dark for five years being told nothing by the Spanish authorities, and little more by the Foreign Office. She said: “Apparently, the two guys were mates of his, and went over to his flat at 6am that morning after being in 24 Hour Square all night. It was normal for them to call for Paul to go for breakfast. “That’s when it all happened. At 7.30am a phone call was made to one of Paul’s friends by

the chief witness, Paul’s girlfriend, who was tied up and held in the flat along with him while the assault took place. The call told them that Paul had been killed. “Why was she not made to testify?” asked Beryl. “She made three separate statements to the police telling them exactly what happened, then she was moved to a witness protection programme. She told them things that would have proved it was murder.” Beryl continued: “In England she would have been made to testify, even if only by video link, but because she wasn’t here the judge wouldn’t try them for murder, so they were convicted of manslaughter instead. It’s not fair. Paul was no angel, but he didn’t deserve to die, and he deserved justice.” With tears in her eyes she told me: “I just want to know if he was happy living here before he died. If I knew he was happy, I could be content with that.”

Migrants: To help or not to help?



A CYCLIST aged 72 had to be airlifted to hospital in Malaga on Sunday, April 19, after being injured in a traffic accident on the A7 motorway near Manilva.

Our View

OW desperate would you have to be? What could convince you to risk the lives of your children and spouse, not to mention your own? It must be one of the most difficult decisions anyone would have to make to uproot family and place them in the hands of human traffickers, in the hope of reaching a safer country. But that’s the decision thousands of families take every year, often with the tragic outcome witnessed this week when more than 700 people drowned off the coast of Libya. The problem that Europe is facing at the moment with the influx of migrants landing on our shores is not so much: “Should we help them?” But rather: “What is the best way to help them and us at the same time?” There seem


to be two main camps of thought. Those that say: “Keep them out.” And those that say: “Let them in and never mind the consequences.” Australia would be the perfect example of how zero tolerance works well. PM Tony Abbott said: “If you want to stop migrants crossing the Mediterranean, don’t let them set foot on land.” And although it sounds harsh, we cannot deny it has stopped the boats heading for Oz. But European refugee groups say: “Forget the future, save them now and sort it out later.” Which on the face of it is the most humane response. Hopefully common sense will prevail at the emergency EU meetings this week. Maybe a mix of both camps will be the answer. Save them all now! Then stop any more boats leaving port.

The report has forecast that unemployment will fall by approximately 70,000 people in the region.

Taking the insurance companies for a ride By Steve Walsh EVER wondered why your holiday insurance premiums are so high? David Klein did, until his holiday to Las Vegas turned into a nightmare. When the 78-year-old and his wife Susan left Spain for their dream holiday in Las Vegas, like all smart travellers, they made sure their medical insurance was in order. Little did they know that within a week, David would be struck down with pneumonia. Susan was woken by David gibbering and hallucinating, and after checking with the insurance company, she called an ambulance. She said: “David was covered for up to $30,000, so I thought all should be OK.”

David and Susan

She started to realise things might be a little costly when the emergency services explained to her that this could cost

upwards of $1,000. Her second awakening occurred at Valley Hospital main entrance, where the administration demanded $2,500 before they would let them in. Only then was David rushed to ER and then to Intensive Care. During his recovery over the next two days Susan was not permitted to stay with him. He wasn’t alone, however! From the moment he arrived in the ICU, he was hounded by the hospital accountant demanding money. The fact that the 78year-old disabled man was in Intensive Care didn’t deter the young bureaucrat trying to make David sign over $5,000 at every

opportunity. He said: “The insurance payments are slow from Spain, so we need some money.” David was distraught, and a decision was made to move him to a standard room. They discovered the room was uninhabitable. “The toilet had broken and there was mess everywhere.” They had to wait until maintenance fixed the problem later that evening. Meanwhile, David was left in the corridor. The next morning, the room still hadn’t been cleaned. When Susan arrived, she was again pressured for money, the bill was now $39,000. That was the last straw for David. He removed his tubes and mask, and left the hospital still wearing his gown. The whole experience proved to them that the American medical system is taking the insurance companies for a ride. “It’s a huge scam,” he said. “As soon as they see the insurance limit on your policy, that’s what they’ve already decided your treatment will cost. And more!”

In fact, while population figures dropped almost everywhere in the country, Malaga registered the highest increase, with a total of 1,627,584 inhabitants registered on January 1, 2015. Although the increase was minimal, it has relaunched the upward trend of the past, which was broken in 2013 as expatriates began to leave the area.

Municipal workers and electrical company representatives had reported that due to certain problematic individuals in the area they were afraid to carry out their tasks or read electricity meters, and many reports of burglaries and animal cruelty had come in. The police operation included raids on a number of properties, resulting in six arrests and confiscation of cocaine and stolen goods. Two fighting cocks and four dogs in a bad state were also discovered and taken to an animal refuge. Three arrests were made for suspected drugtrafficking and one for theft and cruelty to animals, and another two people were also arrested after officers discovered they were wanted in relation to past crimes. During the raids, officers found that many of the homes were illegally connected to mains electricity, leading 16 people to be charged for electrical fraud.

Over 10 million homes in Spain are underinsured FOR most people their home is their biggest financial investment and one of their most important assets. Therefore it is essential that your property and all its possessions are properly and comprehensively insured. Simply being insured is not enough. Check your insurance policy, ask your provider about potential loopholes, make sure everything is comprehensively insured, or you could face costly repairs should something go wrong. Deciding between a spanish or UK based insurance company If you live in the UK and rent out your property in Spain, then it makes sense to use a UK based insurer. If you live in Spain then it may be easier to contract your home insurance from a Spanish based insurer. Línea Directa is a Spanish based insurance company that offers comprehensive insurance for your home, with a dedicated expat customer service centre in English or German. Whether you’re asking for a quotation or filing a claim, our customer service staff will guide you through the process and explain everything in your language. Protecting your home: Buildings insurance Buildings insurance covers the actual structure of your home and includes garages, swimming pools, gardens, tennis courts, gates, patios and fences. Cover includes the cost of repairs from damage caused by fire, storm, flood and earthquake. Buildings insurance also covers the permanent fixtures and fittings in your Spanish home and includes fitted kitchens, bathrooms, oil and gas pipes, etc.

It’s important that you check your policy carefully. The sum insured must cover the cost of rebuilding the property, and not the current market value. Protecting your home: Contents insurance Contents insurance covers all the general contents within the home such as furniture, furnishings, electrical equipment, paintings and other valuables. It needs to cover all those items that you would take with you if you were moving house. To calculate the value of the cover, you need to work out the cost of replacing all those items. It’s important not to undervalue your contents, as this will reduce the amount you can claim. Understanding your policy and its cover Understanding exactly what your policy covers and exposing any loopholes can be a challenge. When you choose Línea Directa we help you decide on the best insurance for your home. We are committed to providing all our expatriate customers with comprehensive home insurance for their total peace of mind. We hope the information provided in this article is of interest.

ter and electricity, recycling and taking care of nature. Calendars, cut-outs, stickers and educational material will be distributed at schools across the country.


New Mijas guide and app MIJAS visitors are now able to discover the village’s attractions in six languages via a new, multimedia guide created by the local tourist office.

Ask the optician – The effects of sun damage on our eyes Leighton Griffiths, Store Director from Specsavers Opticas Marbella SPRING and summer are upon us and after a long period of rain we’re now enjoying lovely bright sunshine and warm temperatures. Yet although the sun is one of the things that attract people to Spain, many don’t realise it can damage their eyes. These are some of our most commonly asked questions on the subject: Q: Can the sun really damage my eyes? A: Yes. The same as our skin, our eyes can also be damaged by UV rays and can lead to various problems. Children under 10 in particular should be protected, as their eyes can’t block as much UV as adults’ eyes can. Q: What are the effects of sun damage

on eyes? A: Exposure to UV rays can cause a number of problems including Cataracts, Macular degeneration, Eyelid skin cancer, Pinguecula (small, yellowish, slightly raised lesions that form on the surface of the white part of the eye that can cause irritation and dry eyes) and Pterygium (scar tissue that can grow over the surface of the eye and impair vision). Q: What can I do to protect my eyes? A: The best protection is to wear sunglasses with total UV protection

and a hat. When choosing sunglasses we recommend that you: • Check sunglasses comply with UNE-EN 1836:2006 + A1:2008 or bear the CE kite mark and are marked UV 400. • Consider polarized lenses to decrease the amount of glare and choose large or wraparound glasses Specsavers’ sunglasses offer the maximum UV protection and are now on offer until the end of June.

FLYING THE NEST: Spanish men wait until they are nearly 29.

Slow to leave

THE latest study on youth trends by Eurostat statistics office has revealed that young adults in Spain are amongst the slowest to leave home in the EU. While the average age for moving out for all the member states combined was 26.1, in Spain an average age of 28.9 was reported. While Spanish women were in a bit more of a hurry with an average age of 27.9, young men take another two years to budge. Scandinavian countries were reported as those where youngsters spread their wings the earliest, with Swedish youths leaving home at an average age

of 19.6, Danish at 21 and Finnish at 21.9. They were followed by Holland at 23.5, France at 23.6 and Germany at 23.9. Yet youths in Spain were not those who dragged their heels the most. Croatians were reported as the latest nest-flyers with an average leaving age of 31.9, followed by Slovakia (30.7), Malta (30.1), Italy (29.9), Greece (29.3), Bulgaria (29.1) and Portugal (29). Across all EU member states females were reported to take the leap earlier than their male counterparts.

Press conference protester A PRESS meeting at the European Central Bank was interrupted last week when a woman rushed across the room shouting and climbing onto the table in front of ECB President Mario Draghi. She scattered papers and threw confetti all over the Italian banker while screaming: “An

Spain’s recovery not successful OLIVIER BLANCHARD, Harvard and MIT professor and the IMF’s chief economist since 2008, has both criticised and praised Spain’s performance as it emerges from financial crisis, but on the whole says its recovery “is not a success story.” Speaking from his office in Amiens, France, Blanchard remarked that Spain’s high levels of unemployment have still not been addressed effectively. When asked whether he thought that, despite Spain’s high unemployment levels, it had nonetheless come out of recession, he responded: “Can you say that a country has successfully emerged from recession when it still has 23 per

cent unemployment? Competitiveness and exports have certainly improved and are getting stronger, behaving reasonably well. They are very good news compared to a year ago and can continue.” He went on: “How do you define crisis? The country has been left in growth, but unemployment is too high. Therefore Spain is not cured. Unemployment can only go down through reform. “For me, the key is the duality of the labour market and the need to remove large differences between temporary and permanent workers. Spain should not be living with 10 per cent or 15 per cent - or 23 per cent unemployment.”

Josephine Witt had gained entry to the conference by posing as a reporter. She was dressed in a black tshirt bearing the slogan: ‘End ECB Dick-tatorship’. The meeting was suspended for a few minutes while the table was cleaned up.

Banking on moral investments Loose change A look at finance for females

Jane Plunkett

THE simple mention of banks, bankers or ex-bankers these days sends a chill up the spines of many. Corruption and dodgy practices, along with the aiding and exercise of tax evasion are just some of the nasty things that some banks and people like former IMF chief Rodrigo Rato have been knee-deep in over the years. Historically banks have been viewed solely as financial institutions and morality has not entered the equation. Traditional banks thrive on a thirst for profit, and as we have seen from various news reports over the years this is often at the expense of

SOLAR POWER: Ethical banks invest in ‘quality of life’ projects. morals, the environment and customers. You may also be surprised to find out that the money you put into your typical bank is often used and invested in projects that many might find offensive. Would you consciously support a massive weapon-producing establishment? Or donate to an energy project that plans on actively destroying the environment? Probably not! But indirectly

through your banking choice, you could be doing just that. Current profit-focused behaviour means that the typical big banks finance everything from weapons’ manufacture to the most polluting fossil fuel projects on the planet, as well as causing asset bubbles and financial crises. However, not all banks have profit as their overriding objective and there are other approaches

that are becoming successful. Several banks make it their mission to create social and environmental benefits, by carefully choosing which companies and projects they provide finance to. These are called ‘ethical banks’. Ethical banks still prioritise capital and seek to maximise returns, but in doing so they promise to align their money with their values, by using their capital to help finance ‘real economy’ businesses selling products and services, not speculative ventures. They adopt transparency principles to give public insight to how their money is being used. They consider the long-term impact of their lending decisions, in projects that support quality of life for all. Traditional banks have long embraced a profit-over-people mentality, so maybe it’s high time we looked at where our money spends the night and if we’re not happy, take our money elsewhere.


Fraud arrest FORMER IMF chief and ex-Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Rodrigo Rato was arrested for alleged tax fraud, concealment of assets, and money laundering after his home and office were searched.

Party funds THE Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development welcomed the legislative package on democratic regeneration recently approved by the Spanish Parliament in order to fight corruption and promote integrity and transparency.

Slow progress THE Eurozone crisis was an economic nightmare for many, not least the property sector. While there are signs of growth across the bloc, prices in many countries remain low, according to Eurostat.


Can Hacienda claim back taxes? Q. I read your article on Spanish tax returns. I am 72 and have been a resident here for 12 years. When I became an OAP in 2008, I was informed that (as you pointed out) as a pensioner, I did not pay tax. This year I received a letter from Hacienda. According to the letter, and my accountant, it would appear that on November 27, 2014, a law was passed and my accountant now informs me that I will have to send in my complete bank records of pensions received for the last five years. This is two

You and the Law in Spain By David Searl

A. It seems that you are being audited by the Tax Agency. In Spanish this is called ‘inspección’. And the picture does not look good. Let us clear up two points. First, I never said that Old Age Pensions are

OAP pensions from England and Scandinavia, plus a small private pension, which total about €12,000 per year. My accountant now tells me that according to the new Spanish tax laws, OAP residents are liable to taxation. I am now confused and worried, as I may be facing a back tax payment of several thousand euros. Where do I stand? F W T (Costa del Sol)

not taxed in Spain. It is only Civil Service or other government service pensions that are taxed in their country of origin. Old Age Pensions are treated as normal income. Second, there is no new Spanish tax law which affects you. Yes, the tax reform package for 2015 was issued in November 2014, but there is no change regarding Old Age Pensions. They are liable for tax in Spain, as I

have written various times. If your accountant advised that you were not liable for Spanish tax, he was in error. And you are not liable for fines and penalties because the law has changed, but because you were misinformed. You must now present your records to the Tax Agency. At your level of income, you probably owe little tax, so the charges and interest should not come to much.

Not everyone was born equal LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT


HE idea that all man/womankind are born equal is complete and utter claptrap. We are not all equal. Even as far as limbs and bodies are concerned, many of us are of course different. The levels of human intelligence and intellectualism are also tremendously varied. Some of us couldn’t hammer a nail in; others are capable of building machines which can bring together proton beams at rates approaching the speed of light. The majority of our human race are followers; leaders are in the minority. Without the leaders, we would all wander off into some New Age state of oblivion. It is therefore my opinion

LEADERS: From corner-shop owners to big business entrepreneurs. that those who are capable and willing to utilise their superior intellect to create companies and occupations for the followers, should reap just rewards for their efforts, not find themselves penalised. From the corner-shop owner

who employs one sales assistant to the entrepreneur who creates jobs for thousands, all should be reimbursed accordingly. So what if the man or woman who employs large numbers has a big yacht or a mansion?

Without their expertise and incentives, many of those they employ probably wouldn’t be able to afford a mortgage, or to clothe or even feed their children. So what if the corner-shop owner can afford to purchase a nice car? Because of his efforts, his sales assistant can no doubt live in a comfortable bedsit and enjoy a relatively stressfree existence. The truth of the matter is that we need these leaders. Outside of themselves, the Labour party do not agree. The Lefties, with their politics of envy, would like to see the back of them all. The powermad, dysfunctional leaders of the Left want the whole country reliant solely on them and their party. They want to kill free enterprise, nationalise just about everything, buy future voters by handing out benefits to all and sundry, and discourage and alienate anyone with

the initiative to think or act otherwise. Have no doubt, if, heaven forbid, Miliband and his awful cronies are elected in a couple of weeks’ time, the brains, entrepreneurs and investors will haemorrhage from the country like blood from an opened jugular vein. This left-wing approach has of course all been tried before and always failed. It’s called Communism, folks. Pure and simple. Do we really want to see the wonderful country of our birth commit suicide by adopting the doctrine of Lenin? Vote for Cameron. You know it makes sense! Lovely mistake in the TV auto descriptions this week when a somewhat average singer told us of the thousands of songs she had ‘sunk’ over the years. Yep! Keep the faith Love Leapy Web:

Spot on about health tourism and illegal immigration I TOTALLY agree with Nora Johnson’s spot on recent articles about health tourism, scams and, especially, illegal immigration. It’s all too clear the UK can’t continue being the world’s destination of choice. I don’t have a problem with immigrants moving to the UK if they ’re decent, honest, hardworking people. However, I think the way in which successive governments have abandoned all control of immigration is downright irresponsible. No one really knows how many immigrants have entered Britain, where they’re from, who they are, or what they’re doing there. Britain’s a tiny island in the grand scheme of things, and none of its infrastructure is suited to deal with this massive influx. Housing, transport, education and health services are all buckling under the strain. Surely it needs to shut the doors and get its own house in order before anyone else can settle there? Andrea Turner (Alicante)

Shady deal AFTER reading in the Euro We e k l y N e w s a b o u t s h a d e b e i n g p r ov i d e d fo r h o r s e s ( Costa del Sol issue 1553 ), I wa s s o p l e a s e d . I c a n o n l y hope this will be done soon before the long awaited summer arrives. We all look forward to a good summer but the horses that pull the tourist carriages really do deserve some shade in between their trips around Fuengirola. Mavis Lloyd, Fuengirola (Malaga)

Just send an email (or a letter) to the relevant Tax Office in the UK stating you no longer want to pay any UK Tax and they will, in a very short time, send back a confirming note together with any Tax Rebate due (I received £18.64p - not much, but every little helps). HMRC will also at the same time issue a new Tax Code for you which exempts you from any further tax obligations to the UK. Brian Maddox, Beniarbeig (Alicante)

Knee-jerk HAVING read the opinions of those interviewed in the Street Talk last week, could one of them please explain to me how extra security checks and delays to passengers will ensure that some suicidal pilot will not fly me into the side of a mountain. This must be one of the best knee jerk solutions ever. Perhaps they hope that if the flight is delayed the pilot might think his p a s s e n g e r s h ave s u ffe r e d enough for one day.

What rights? I MUST reply to Bill’s letter re t h e M u s l i m s : h av i n g g o n e back to the UK and spent 15 months of hell there. I can tell him that the problem is not the Muslims but the government’s attitude to them.

Racial prejudice has backfired into prejudice against British people returning to their land of birth.

At Christmas the councils used to have a nativity scene outside - I found it was true that they no longer did - it would upset the Muslims I was told. ‘Harry’ told me they loved Christmas as it came just after their most holy time in November, they got their kids a small present and had a special meal.

H ex a g r a m

Based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 60s. He earned notoriety with his popular paintings of waifs with big eyes, however, the truth was they were all created by his wife and not by him. The film centres on her awakening as an artist and her tumultuous relationship with her husband. Directed by Tim Burton and starring Amy Adams, Christoph Walz and Terence Stamp. Run time: 1 hr 46 mins. Rated: PG-13 TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) You have been learning about certain people very fast. Do you feel as though you are in the middle of a soap opera? In the spring sunshine, it is possible that passions will fire up. Everything seems to revolve round one person and it is upsetting everything else. Try to spend more time with people who have a warmth and generosity about them. GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) This is your week to sparkle and show how clever you are. Why be modest? Let others know what you are capable of; your talents will come out sooner or later. Don't be embarrassed when paid a compliment, for it is richly deserved. You have put on a jolly good show of late and it is now time to listen to the applause. CANCER (June 22 - July 23) Something that you had set your heart on, although still coming, is terribly slow. This is not a time to be a pessimist. Please don't, however, allow your tendency to put all your eggs in one basket trip you up. It is not necessary to go about things the way that you normally do. Remember that variety is the spice of life. LEO (July 24 - August 23) You are moving on in an important area but do not burn bridges before you have others to cross. You will know why I mention this later in the week. You are able to influence others far more than you realise, but with your wish to keep things on an even keel you may be giving away too much. You need to keep a balance. VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Is there a chance that you are burying your head in the sand? It is likely that something happening right in front of you is being overlooked or ignored. You are able to deal with this more easily than you think. Just take one step at a time and stick to your plan. LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) This is not a time to take anyone for granted. At this time of the year people tend to look at their situation and ask if they are getting enough out of it.

Neglecting someone now could store up a lot of problems for the future. Avoid doing anything that could lead to you being blamed later. SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Now is your chance to go straight for what you want. The shock of having this opportunity could cause you to hesitate. Do bear in mind, though, that he who hesitates is often lost. The temptation to keep something for yourself is not selfish but sensible. You may not have the chance again in the near future.

That does not mean that your attitude towards them could not change. Indeed, unless you want to continue to be upset, it must. Luckily, you have mostly had your own way recently. Try to be a good loser when you have to accept second best. AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) You have a chance to give someone great delight, so why not go ahead? Your insecure side tells you that it is too good to be true and there must be a catch. Why should there be? This is a situation that you may relax into as only you know how.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Don't look for spooks in the closet when there are none. Not only does it look silly but it also wastes good time. Basing your actions on past disappointments can only lead to more of the same. Show confidence in others and they will show it in you. Sometimes, your patience wears thin but it is in your best interests to remain calm. ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Is someone that you are closely involved with trying to drive a hard bargain? Are you surprised at the amount of time and energy that they are throwing at it? It could be that they are more passionate about it than you realised.

For solutions:

1. Houska Castle, Czech Republic Most castles are built to repel invaders, but this one, deep in a forest, was supposed to keep something in - it’s claimed it’s built over a bottomless pit from which demons escape hell. The Nazis took up residence of the castle in the 30s to conduct occult experiments. Ghost sightings, naturally, are many.

A unique healing gift

A freak accident reveals a secret that 13-year-old Ava has been hiding from the world. She has a unique gift in that she can heal others of their physical ailments. This book tells her sad tale when in an unguarded moment she saves her dear friend’s life after an accident. KIM TRAYNOR/WIKIPEDIA

4. Dragsholm Castle, Denmark Apparently haunted by 100 ghosts, in part because of its role in the 16th and 17th centuries as a prison for criminals from the nobility and the church, one of which was Mary Queen of Scots’ husband, the fourth Earl of Bothwell.

News quickly spreads of a miracle worker and the press bombard her home. We get fascinating glimpses of her early childhood and that of the friend she saved. But her power comes at a cost, as she grows weaker with every healing and she has to decide how much she is

2. Edinburgh Castle, Scotland Imposing over a city with a grizzly history, 900-year-old Edinburgh castle has so many ghosts, a team of more than 200 volunteers spent 10 days investigating in 2001. A headless drummer, Lady Glamis who was burned as a witch, a spook in a leather apron, and even a ghost-dog have all regularly made their presence felt. 3. Bran Castle, Romania Dracula’s lair is the stuff of stories, but this 14th century castle is thought to have been the home of Vlad the Impaler, or at least that’s what the marketing claims. The ghosts of Vlad’s countless torture victims still stalk the halls.


9. Chillingham Castle, England More haunted by ITV2 programme makers than ghosts, previous spectresightings include ‘the blue boy,’ who stopped appearing after the remains of a man and young boy were found inside the walls. willing to sacrifice in order to save those she loves most.

10. Parador Jaen, Spain Boasts two ghosts - a woman who died of heartbreak, who screams and bangs the door of what’s now a guest room, and the Terrible Lizard, a prisoner who died of hunger.



5. Dunluce Castle, Northern Ireland The ruins of the Norman Castle on the Antrim coast are haunted by servants who went to a watery grave when the kitchen collapsed into the sea in 1639. 6. Berry Pomeroy, England This castle’s ‘White Lady’ is said to be Lady Margaret Pomeroy, who was locked up and starved for 20 years by her jealous sister, Lady Eleanor.

Sacré bleu! Names to drive you nuts... and you could end up being in a jam! Nora Johnson

Breaking Views Nora is the author of popular psychological suspense and crime thrillers and a freelance journalist. To comment on any of the issues raised in her column, go to columnists/nora-johnson


FRENCH court recently banned parents from naming their baby girl ‘Nutella’ after the hazelnut spread, ruling that it would make her the object of ridicule. The judge ordered the child be called Ella instead. French parents can choose whatever name they want, but local prosecutors can report what they consider to be daft names to a family court. Like the couple who wanted to call their daughter ‘Fraise’ (Strawberry). The baby was renamed ‘Fraisine’ (err, Little Strawberry).

In another instance, a father took legal action to try to stop French car makers Renault from using the same name as his daughter, Zoe Renault. Cedric Renault argued that if Renault named a car model ‘Zoe,’ it would make his daughter’s life a ‘nightmare.’ lain and Sophia Renaud in 1999 saw off legal action to prevent them from naming their daughter ‘Megane,’ even though prosecutors said it sounded too much like the car. Choosing first names can be a headache in the UK too. So, where can you go for inspiration? Well, there are beautiful names from nature at least for girls - like Holly, Hazel, Cherry. But then you have to be so careful with surnames, don’t you? Holly Tree, Hazel Wood, Cherry Pye, anyone? There are enough unfortunate first/ surname combinations around

CHOOSING NAMES: So where do you go for inspiration? like Sidney Harber, Joe King, Chris P Duck, Chris P Bacon and Wendy House. Plus a policewoman in Tasmania, Lauren Order. (Incidentally, there was a girl a couple of years ahead of my mother at school called Primrose Lane. Luckily she married a man with a boring, run-of-the-mill

surname - and that was the end of Primrose Lane.) As for Hollywood and its celebrities, they’re sophisticated and savvy enough not to choose something really naff, surely? How about: Moon Unit (Frank Zappa, also father to Dweezil and Diva Muffin); Kal-El (Superman’s original birth name

courtesy of father, Nicholas Cage); Destry (Steven Spielberg); Aurelius Cy (Elle Macpherson); North West (Kim Kardashian/Kanye West); Apple and Moses (Gwyneth Paltrow). Just imagine how one of those names would go down in your average British school playground. When the next celebrity pregnancy’s announced in Hollywood, may I suggest a national primary school competition to choose the name? After all, the winning entry couldn’t be half as daft as the ones given to the previous lot.

21 gun salute for Queen’s 89th

Superyacht Casino Sunborn

HM The Queen’s 89th birthday was marked with a 21 gun salute on Tuesday, April 21. The salute formed part of an exchange, which saw the Royal Gibraltar Regiment conduct the prestigious salute at Cardiff Castle. The 104 Regiment Royal Artillery, from Newport, fired the salute at Grand Battery House.

The casino operator Paf and the Finnish hotel company Sunborn are in the process of opening an international casino on board the five-star superyacht hotel Sunborn Gibraltar. Subject to the grant of a licence and regulatory approval, the planned soft launch will be on April 29 with the official launch planned for May 16. They say this may create up to 75 new jobs for the local community.

Jose Molina Marcos, David Gilson and Joseph Rocca are charged with conspiring together to defraud the Ministry of Defence by falsely representing invoices and submitting them for payment. Two of the defendants were MoD employees. David Gilson and Joseph Rocca have both been charged with abusing their positions as government procurement cardholders.

easyJet go to Bristol GIBRALTARIANS will now be able to fly easyJet direct to Bristol. April 19 saw the inaugural flight bring 147 passengers from Bristol to Gibraltar on the A319 aircraft. They believe that the new tri-weekly service will attract some 39,000 visitors per year. Return flights will start around £40. Ali Gayward, easyJet’s Head in Gibraltar, said: “We’re delighted to have added this new route to our network from Gibraltar and services between the two destinations have now commenced. We will have more than 19,000 seats available on the new service this summer alone.” While the inaugural flight brought 147 people to the rock, 108 took the first flight from Gibraltar to Bristol on the same day.

They add, the vacancy for a Special Representative of the Chief Minister in the UK was not announced. Although in informed circles there were rumours for some time that he would be leaving his post and Gibraltar, the public at large got to know yesterday, but not from the government.

ars are such gross failings of humanity the only way to cover the shame is to dress them up as noble. People don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed. One of the great myths is that our system owes much to the Red Army that sacrificed 20 million dead. This figure deserves scrutiny. Let Soviet tyrant Josef Stalin explain. “It takes a brave Russian soldier to attack the Nazis, a braver one to retreat.” Get my drift? The Red Army glorious? When in 1939 Bolshevik Russia invaded Finland the Red Army was routed by this small nation of farmers. In 1940 this hapless army brutally occupied the tiny Baltic States and Poland. Mass murder and deportation on an industrial scale commenced. How did Westminster applaud Soviet repression? It rushed to defend Bolshevism when Germany, to escape a similar fate, preemptively attacked Bolshevik Russia in June 1941. Again, the Red Army was ignominiously licked; the much smaller armies of the Reich reached the Russian capital in just 10 weeks.


Inconvenient history Mike Walsh Mike, based in Mediterranean Spain, is an international journalist, author and professional writer.

Should the pathetic Red Army be credited with turning things round? Without British assistance Bolshevism would have been destroyed 45 years earlier. Britain’s Murmansk 78 convoys totalled 1,400 ships. Its Merchant Navy lost 85 British ships, the Royal Navy 16 warships. Three thousand sailors died. The aid carried in these convoys replaced Red Army equipment abandoned to the advancing Germans as the Red Army fled. Britain supplied the 6.8 million strong Red Army with over 15 million pairs of Army boots. Whilst Britain’s largely undefended Far East was overrun by the Japanese, Westminster supplied Bolshevik Russia with 7,056 tanks, 14,795 aircraft, 1,550 RAF trained pilots and

WAR MEMORIAL: In memory of the sailors who died. ground crew. Philip Wilkinson, Chairman of the RAF Russia Association: “There is no doubt we were under pressure. We could have done with 40 Hurricanes going anywhere else but across the seas to Russia.”

Britain, at great cost to itself and Empire, went into overdrive to rescue the Red Army and Bolshevik Russia. The Murmansk convoys delivered 470,000 vehicles, 8,218 artillery pieces, 131,633 machine-guns. 345,735 tonnes of explosives.

Tragically, many of the free of charge 1,981 locomotives, 11,155 freight cars and trucks were put to use dispersing fellow Europeans throughout Stalin’s network of prison camps; few returned. Also to be included, the equipment needed to build the transport infrastructure to supply the insatiable Gulag with 20 million slaves including captured European prisoners-of-war. These lost souls were written off as ‘war reparations.’ Reading the complete inventory of British aid to the Soviet Union is depressing and wearisome. Alexander Solzhenitsyn: “Shame on those who sided with this monstrous regime. Shame on those who put to the backs of their minds such horrors and most of all shame on those who even today, knowing the truth express indignation about unproven German atrocities whilst glorying in or covering up the blood-soaked tyranny of Marxism.” Now, this is a Russian I will toast on May 8.

Puppets should all be strung up Colin Bird Each week, Colin brings his slightly off-the-wall view of the world to the pages of EWN in his own irreverent style.


AM not so sure that modern technology and advanced filming techniques have necessarily made television programmes more enjoyable. I am thinking here of the new Thunderbirds series currently showing on television. Technically it is light years ahead of the early puppet shows on TV that themselves were hailed as milestones in animation technology. This new applied science was called ‘Supermarionation’ and we had the likes of Four Feather Falls, Supercar; Fireball XL5 and Stingray hitting our screens. Then their creator Gerry Anderson upped the game again with the amazingly popular Thunderbirds - you could barely see the strings on those suckers - and my own favourite, Captain Scarlet & The Mysterons. With the latter, here at last were puppets that looked close to being human and did not have oversized heads

CAPTAIN SCARLET: Puppets who looked close to human. perched on their arthritic looking bodies. The reason for those disproportionate craniums, I later found out, was that they carried solenoids in order to be able to lip-sync the voices. With the advance in electronics and miniaturisation, this problem was overcome with the Captain Scarlet series. So good was the modelling in fact, that the young spotty girl living next door to us

thought that the puppet character Captain Black was an absolute doll. I felt the need to point out to her, that’s exactly what the git was. It was easy to see why these new groundbreaking children’s programmes were so popular because they superseded such puppet series as The Adventures of Twizzle; a double jointed little oik who could extend his arms and

legs and open a door in Bristol while standing in Swindon. Also Torchy the Battery Boy who sported a lamp in his head that shone a magic beam. Poor old Torchy’s batteries gave out after 52 episodes but then, this was in the days before Duracell Plus. The sad part is that I can actually remember all this stuff. Sadder still, is the fact that I can scroll back even further to the days of Muffin the Mule and The Flowerpot Men, but in my defence hastily add that this was enforced viewing as a mere toddler when my Mum would take me next door to watch their OXO cube sized television. Muffin was a very lucky mule; if a real horse looked that knackered he would have long since been sent to the glue makers. And interestingly his presenter, Annette Mills, was auntie to Hayley. Bill and Ben progressed into politics of course and formed a coalition government with Weedy Ed still squeaking away between them. So yes, the new Thunderbirds series will undoubtedly be popular with the young generation, but for us old hands you can’t beat the original.

Magical date of last chemo session is fast approaching Erica Russell Watson: My journey – and I’m driving

16th April LESS than a week to go now before my last chemo session! Hard to believe, but it seems that the magical date is in sight and approaching fast.

I have been extremely positive throughout my treatment and have, for the most part, been spared the majority of the serious side-effects associated with chemotherapy. I have to say that the cumulative effect is starting to take its toll though. The most irritating thing is a constant watering eye and very dry skin. No hair, eyebrows or eyelashes make you look odd but it’s not the end of the world. In the week immediately after my treatment I notice that I have a very dry mouth and a white tongue (but no ulcers)

which affects how food tastes. This all passes and apart from a tremendous thirst and a slightly achy body life carries on. So once I have my last treatment, I move into a different phase. I imagine that I will be given a CAT scan to see how I have responded to chemotherapy. Before starting treatment, I had three shadows on my lungs in addition to the removed tumours. The doctors wanted to keep an eye on these as the lungs would be a typical place for breast cancer to extend to.

It is the hope that the chemo has eradicated these shadows and that should be that. I will then have to wait for the call to start my radiotherapy. I have been marked out in preparation with tiny tattoos and have to prepare the area to be radiated with some intensive hydration! Being pale, my skin is likely to be more sensitive to the effects of radiotherapy. I am not sure how many sessions I will be given but I imagine around 20 or so. We shall see. In the meantime, life ticks along. The children seem to be

more grown-up by the day. I am convinced that they are visibly taller each day. We seem to be experiencing a little calm after the storm, although it is meant to be the other way round normally, in our case we’ve dealt with a mini tsunami so calmer waters are most welcome. Less tears and a slow acceptance of the situation and even some laughter is a great relief. Let’s see what next week has in store for us all. One thing is for sure… life never fails to surprise!

Breakthrough in how Alzheimer’s disease is caused

HELP AT HAND: A new treatment could soon be possible.

A BREAKTHROUGH could have been made in Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers say they may have discovered how Alzheimer’s is caused and say it could lead to new treatments. The new study showed that the immune system, which protects bodies from foreign invaders, plays a part in the debilitating disease. Using mice, they found that in

Alzheimer’s disease, certain immune cells that normally protect the brain begin to consume an important nutrient called arginine. The scientists looked at ways of blocking this process and found that it prevented the characteristic memory loss in a mouse model of the disease. It is hoped this finding could now lead to a human trial.

Barcelona University produces AIDS vaccine AN AIDS vaccine has been produced in Spain. The University of Barcelona (UB) is the first centre in Spain accredited by the Spanish Medicines Agency to produce advanced therapy drugs for the HIV and AIDS virus, which will begin trials on 36 patients at the Clinical Hospital of Barcelona in September. The drugs have been produced at the Unit for Research and Development at the university’s Faculty of Medicine. Doctors Josep Maria Canals, who heads the research unit, and Felipe Garcia, who co-ordinates the clinical trial to be held from September, said the accreditation allows UB to perform all the production processes at all stages of cell vaccine for

AIDS VACCINE: Trials will begin on patients in September. the treatment of AIDS. Canals said the accreditation to produce the drug “is necessary to make a qualitative leap from basic research to clinical trials. It opens the door to other re-

searchers and companies to undertake the whole process of manufacture of another drug of any of today’s advanced therapies, including gene therapy and regenerative medicine here.”

The university says Spain, with about 50 drugs in clinical development, is at the forefront in the field of advanced therapies. Garcia explained that advanced therapies and, in particular, gene therapy or therapeutic vaccines including those used in the study, are the focus of new experimental technologies which aim to achieve the cure of the HIV infection and to eliminate the risk of contagion. The trials will last a year and will involve taking a blood sample from each patient, working to isolate and purify the virus. Scientists are hoping to achieve 99.9 per cent efficiency of the new cell vaccine and what doctors call a ‘functional cure’ in patients.

Lack of sleep for toddlers can cause later problems TODDLERS who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to develop emotional and behavioural problems. Norwegian researchers found toddlers who slept less than 10 hours a night or woke frequently, had more emotional and

behavioural problems by the age of five. The results come from a study of 32,662 pairs of mothers and children in Norway backed by the Norwegian Ministry of Health. The mothers filled out questionnaires when they

were 17 weeks’ pregnant, when the child was 18 months old and again when the child was five, rating their child’s behaviour and how long they slept. At 18 months, almost 60 per cent of toddlers were sleeping for 13 to 14 hours per night with a

Woman’s stress of divorce DIVORCE often causes heartache and pain to both parties, but scientists now believe that women are more susceptible to the biological and psychological effects of the separation from a partner. Researchers found that divorced women are more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who are happily married. Nearly 16,000 people aged 45 to 80, who had been married at least once, took part in the study and were interviewed every two years from 1992 to

2010 about their marital status and health. Around one-third had been divorced at least once during the 18-year study and although men are generally at higher risk of suffering a heart attack, the findings of the study revealed women fared worse in the wake of divorce. The study revealed that men who had been divorced had a similar risk of heart attack, as those who stayed married.

smaller amount sleeping for less than 10 hours per night and waking regularly. The study’s authors found early sleep issues may be part of the reason for later emotional or behavioural problems but other factors, like child temperament and parental mental health, may be important as well. “This study does suggest that inadequate sleep in early childhood increases the risks for later emotional and behavioural problems,” said Michelle Garrison of Seattle Children’s Research Institute in Washington, who analysed the research. She added: “Inadequate sleep at night leads to trouble the next day with handling emotions, impulse control, and reading emotions.”

Electricity: Time to shop around? HOUSEHOLDERS are paying 12.7 per cent more for their electricity this year in comparison to 2014. This has led to consumers’ association FACUA asking for government intervention so that users are not victims of restricted choice. Do you shop around for better suppliers? Samantha Warren of Fiesta Crafts in Javea (Alicante) said: “Actually we have been quite pleased with the price levels so no, we have not felt the need to shop around for alternative suppliers. We are invoiced by Iberdrola; there are efficient systems in place for paying bills promptly and we have always had a prompt service.” Luz Trango of SGB Beers in Mijas Costa (Malaga) thought some clarity should be brought to bills. “A lot of people do not understand the breakdown of the electricity bills. They are so confusing to many, even the native Spanish. We have changed suppliers for the business in the past, but in the long run you don’t save Luz Trango of SGB Beers, Mijas Costa.

money with all the additional costs that you have to pay, and you may be cut off during the transition. I know many individuals who did the same and now stick with their original supplier to save the headache. I think there is not much difference in the choice,” she remarked. Anne Hernandez from The Presidents Club, Marbella (Malaga), commented: “Having been President of a large community for many years this is a subject that has cropped up. I have heard of the difficulties my members have ex-

perienced through changing their power supplier and it has not been good. Bearing that in mind, it would seem it is of no advantage to change as many have gone back to their original supplier.” Pascale Michiels from Costa Blanca Sales has recently bought a new house and has had no electricity for several weeks as she waits for paperwork and a meter to be sorted out. “At the moment to have any electricity would be nice whatever the price!” she joked, “But when Iberdrola have sorted it I will definitely be shopping around and looking for another provider. You just cannot justify these price increases. I will also get a night meter. They cost around €11 and when I installed one at my last property I was saving around €60 on bills.” Anne Hernandez from The Presidents Club.

Is Sanchez on to a good thing? A weekly look - and not entirely impartial reaction to the Spanish political scene

FELIPE GONZALEZ , former president of the Spanish government for nearly 13-and-ahalf years, called on the PSOE to support Pedro Sanchez. Gonzalez admitted he did not vote for Sanchez during the primaries to select the party’s secretary general. He voted for Eduardo Madina, he said, because he knew him but not Sanchez. And there’s the rub: the party grandees did not know Sanchez either and it rankled that he pipped Susana Diaz, their first choice, at the post. They and Diaz herself rejected Gonzalez’s advice to cluster round him, preferring to wait until after the elections. They would be wiser to take Felipe’s astute advice now because if Sanchez does

De Cospedal, with territory to defend, would hardly spare kind words for the two new political parties poaching PP votes. But by quoting “The gods send young kings when they want to punish humans,” she tacitly agreed that the PP’s frontman Mariano Rajoy is vulnerable to competition from younger rivals. Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias is no oil painting but he’s young and the ponytail scores points in some quarters.

To teach a young dog to growl, pull and persevere brings the reward of winning, or to engage in a rough and tumble and then to give up, are not lessons that we should be teaching him.

They are certainly not the game we allow him to win. Similarly the dog is a predator; therefore, food is of prime importance. A client told me her husband worked odd hours. Sometimes, they ate their evening meal at 5pm, sometimes at 7pm. The dog was always fed at 6pm. What she couldn’t understand was when they ate early, the dog never

begged from the table. When they ate later he always begged, despite the fact he was never given food. Think dog; the Alpha dog eats first and the pack have what is left unless he or she decides to have some more. When the family ate second, he was promoted and his instincts told him that he was entitled to the leftovers.

THE TEAM: Specialists in manufacture, supply and fitting of glass curtains, stainless steel, windows and doors. Advertising feature

Your winning team RDMC’S - specialist manufacturers, suppliers and fitters of glass curtains, stainless steel, windows and doors and pool surrounds. RDMC’S is a family run business with over 190 years of combined experience in the glazing, construction and steel industry. We are specialist manufacturers of glass curtains, stainless steel and windows and doors. We use only the highest quality materials including 316 marine grade stainless steel so as not to cause corrosion problems. We have our own glass toughening plant which means the complete glass curtain system, including the glass, is manufactured under one roof. We also manufacture UPVC and Aluminium windows and doors, the aluminium windows now come with thermal breaks for extra insulation and the profile is ideally suited for lift and slide mechanisms on larger patio doors etc... We manufacture pool surrounds with stainless steel and glass, we have completed many urbanisations and know all the regulations in heights and self closing gates for safety. We can manufacture roofs including sliding (electric or manual), com-

GLASS CURTAINS: Using the highest quality material. plete steel structures, acoustic glass for bars, mirrors, table tops, sealed units, splash backs, shop fronts, shelves, walk on glass, stairs, glass balustrade, pool surrounds, in fact we can assist you with all your glass needs. The glass curtain system that we manufacture is a German system and much time and thought has gone into the system, making it one of, if not the best, system available on the market today. The system is completely different in that it is top hung which means the weight of the glass is distributed evenly and not all sitting on the bottom. Other companies will claim a bottom hung system is better, however as glass manufacturers who make our own glass and understand the weight involved, we know the best way for a system to func-

tion correctly is to hang the glass so as not to impose such weight and strain onto the system below. The system has undergone many tests in Germany including an opening and closing test of over 10,000 cycles and also a wind test of up to 2,000 Pascals, all the test documentation can be viewed at our offices. We also recommend that anybody looking to install glass curtains or stainless

steel, visit the factory, its always best to see where your products are being manufactured. With this financial climate many companies on the coast have filed for bankruptcy, unfortunately you will find that these companies are still trying to trade without proper premises and licences and merely change their company names.

Tax consequences of community rentals OFTEN a community committee will decide to rent out some part of the community not in use to generate extra income. For example; an empty apartment previously but no longer occupied by a concierge, part of the roof to a mobile phone mast company, an empty local previously used as a sales office, an unused sports facility or a community parking area. This is quite common and on the surface would appear to be a good idea but there are consequences for both the

community and the owners that may easily be overlooked. The community is actually conducting business and as such is required to make a tax declaration and pay tax, specifically IVA (VAT). Any income from any rental, with the exception of income from the rental of a domestic dwelling i.e. a house or apartment, must include IVA, currently charged at 21%. A 303 tax declaration form must be submitted every quarter to the tax office and any tax due paid. In addition in February of the

Community Law Corner By José Luis Navarro Solicitor for Intercala Administration

with Pete Woodall, Woody’s Los Boliches

following year, a final declaration on Form 390 showing the total annual rent received must also be submitted. Furthermore, if the rental income received by the community in any one year, be it for roof space, an empty local, parking or an

apartment (domestic dwelling) exceeds €3,005.06 - the Euro equivalent of 500,000 Ptas - an additional declaration has to be made on Form 347. Plus another declaration on Form 184; declaration number 184 should not only include

the details of the community but also the names and NIE or NIF numbers of each and every one of the owners, as well as their percentage share (cuota) within the community. Consequently, each owner should then show on their own personal tax declaration their percentage share of the community rental income, regardless of how small it is. Although €3,000 (3,005.06) sounds like a lot of money it is only equal to a rent of just over €250 a month. Even an annual rent of €4,500 in a community of 150 owners would only produce an income of €3.00 per owner. Failure to file this or any other tax declarations, could result in a fine for either the community, the owners or both. To complicate things further, some owners up until this point may not have even been required to make a tax declaration. Now theoretically they do and even worse, all of the above declarations are usually best compiled and presented by an asesor (accountant) who will understandably charge for their services. So it is all looking to be possibly nothing

short of an own goal. What started out as a good idea to generate a little income for the community may well end up as quite a complicated puzzle with some owners unwittingly breaking the law for what is usually a relatively small amount of money. This is not necessarily so, this is only an example of how, through simple unawareness, things can easily get out of hand especially with rentals. There are however serious fines for not complying with tax regulations which means administrators must be very careful to ensure that community accounts are kept accurately, tax declarations made properly and that all the owners are kept in the picture as far as their tax obligations are concerned. As usual we the solicitors for Intercala Administration advise the readers of our monthly article to seek competent advice in all matters relating to the law. Many of our previous community law corner articles published in the Euro Weekly News are now available to read online at www. communitylawcorner. weebly.

Spain issues reward stickers for green cars THE DGT General Traffic Authority in Spain has announced that it will be sending out stickers to owners of electric cars, which will enable them to obtain special privileges. Displaying the new sticker will allow the owners of non-polluting cars, of which more than 10,000 are now registered in the country, to be able to use specific carpool and bus lanes without carrying extra passengers and also to apply for local tax reductions from their town halls. The DGT explained in a statement that this would be the first time that these stickers would be issued in Spain, allowing green vehicles to be identified and rewarded.

Harley-Davidson show

Boys and their toys… By Wendy Ann Cowham LAST Friday and Saturday some mean machines took to the streets of Fuengirola. Heads turned to see the fantastic display of Harley-Davidson and other bikes parade. This extravaganza is always a crowdpuller and Euro Weekly News was there to photograph some of the most beautiful machines. Many had travelled from afar with their owners decked out in jackets emblazoned with the insignia of their ‘chapters’. As the bikes paraded along the streets, they stopped at various rest points on the Paseo Maritimo and met up afterwards to line-up outside Hotel Las Palmeras. The second ride on Saturday began leaving from Fuengirola port at 11am, moving past Terraza Bar Latino, Parque Flaval and later returning to the port at 1.30pm The port was alive with music and additional bars had been set up in the square as well as stalls selling biker goods. The atmosphere was electric as these guys really know how to put on a show.

BIKER BROTHERS: Arnold and Dita. Inset: MAGNIFICENT MACHINES: Line-up in Fuengirola.

The crowds were eager to photograph the magnificent machines and the riders were only too glad to pose with their bikes. To many, events like these bring an atmosphere of comradeship, maybe because it is a gathering of like-minded people with a passion for bikes that they just want to share with others. There were chapters from Malaga, Alicante, Norway, Ger-

many, and others that congregated together to discuss their bikes and experiences. The beers flowed as the day was one of those where the heat was on and those clad in leathers needed to quench their thirst. The afternoon turned into evening when there were live performances on stage by Javi Morena, Concierto Kridens (Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute), and an AC/DC tribute band. The port was rocking until late, and like always a bit of heavy rock goes down a treat with bikers.

Cross border motoring offences FROM May 2015 a change in EU law will compel all EU countries to comply with cross-border rules. This means a driver who commits an offence in any EU country can be pursued in his own country. It is suggested up to 500,000 offences a year are committed by British drivers and motorcyclists in France alone and there are concerns the legislation will place a significant burden on UK courts. The problem foreseen is, the UK courts will be compelled to take the word of the authorities in

the issuing country. A case cannot be argued in the UK, it can only be fought in the country where the alleged offence took place. In Spain, with all the hire-car companies, it is already the law that they have to submit all driver details upon request to the DGT when a vehicle has been caught on camera or stopped for speeding. The DVLA database will be used to trace the keeper of the vehicle, and they will be compelled to reveal the driver, just as is the case in the UK.

Science fiction becomes fact

IN the world of James Bond, we have amazing vehicles that can be driven remotely from your iPhone and become invisible, or have gesture- activated controls with laser positioning sensors, but that’s just fiction right? Wrong! The new Land Rover Concept is here. Showcased at the New York Motor show, Land Rover prove the future is here with their Discovery Vision Concept. It boasts remote drive, an ‘invisible’ bonnet that allows the driver to ‘see through’ the car to the ground, laser positioning sensors, and ‘gesture-controlled’ doors. Other features include a laser positioning sensor system to map the terrain in front of you and relay to a display on the dashboard. Land Rover’s latest concept car might not look radical from the outside, but inside it boasts a range of out-

landish gadgets that would make James Bond proud. The most Q-like advance in the Concept is remote-control drive, which allows anyone to drive the vehicle ‘at very low speed’ using a smartphone, tablet or the car’s removable console while not actually seated inside it. The ‘see through’ bonnet meanwhile combines cameras in the grille and jet-fighter style head-up display technology on the windscreen. The idea being that while driving up a steep rocky incline, you will be able to see what

is directly under your front wheels. Other features include a laser positioning sensor system which will effectively map the terrain in front of you and relay that to an onscreen display on the dash board. This system also includes ‘depth’ so that mud holes and rivers can be judged before entry. The new Discovery is the latest model announced by prolific Jaguar Land Rover, which is experiencing its greatest ever period. Sales and profits are increasing thanks to mod-

MGM Marbella behind Derry Mathews MARBELLA has a world champion after boxer Derry Mathews claimed a version of the world title in Liverpool. It was a rollercoaster week for Marbella gym MGM’s Mathews who had his opponent for Saturday night’s fight in Liverpool changed for the third time. Originally he was supposed to be fighting for Richar Abril’s WBA belt, but the Cuban pulled out for the second time. Venezuelan Ismael Barroso then stepped in at short notice to compete for the Interim WBA World Lightweight Championship, but unfortunately his visa to the UK was denied. So Mathews eventually squared up against Canadian Tony Luis, the WBS Continental Americas champion and WBA ranked number nine. In a hard fought match Mathews triumphed on a unanimous points descisions to take the interim WBA lightweight title at the Echo Arena Mathews was handed a 114-112, 114-112, 115112 decision after making the brighter start and keeping in control of the fight throughout. Luis was not there to simply make up the numbers and gave a good account of himself, but Mathews was the deserving winner.

llistic, Rossi and orious again! VICTORY: Valentino Rossi wins in Argentina.

GENERAL ROUND-UP FOOTBALL - The FA Cup final on May 30 will feature holders Arsenal, 2-1 winners over Reading, against Aston Villa, deserving 2-1 victors against Liverpool. It will be the Gunners’ 19th final appearance, Villa’s 11th. Falkirk (who beat Hibs 1-

0) and Inverness Caledonian Thistle (3-2 winners over Celtic) will contest the Scottish Cup final. Super ‘Caley’ have eight part-timers and an average home gate of 3,600. In the PL, champions-elect Chelsea beat Manchester United 1-0 (my ‘Footballer of the Year’ Eden Hazard on target) and there were also wins for Leicester, Everton, Manchester City, Stoke, WBA and Tottenham, who won 3-1 at Newcastle with Harry Kane’s 30th goal of the season... the first Spurs player to reach this landmark since Gary Lineker 23 years ago. And 5,000 home fans stayed away, protesting against owner Mike Ashley as United lost their sixth game on the bounce. Watford and Middlesbrough (at Norwich) enhanced their Championship

promotion chances with wins while Bournemouth, Brentford, Derby (4-4 at Huddersfield) and Ipswich v Wolves all drew. Lionel Messi scored his 400th goal for Barcelona who beat Valencia 2-0 to stay two points clear of Real Madrid (3-1 winners over Malaga) in La Liga.

Do your homework Jordan Gibb (European Challenge Tour Player)

TOUR PERSPECTIVE Your weekly guide to better golf

MY name is Jordan Gibb and I am a professional golfer based on the Costa Blanca. I have competed across the globe on the European Tour, Challenge Tour and the Alps Tour over the past four years. I also compete locally and was the Order of Merit winner for the 2014 Comunidad Valenciana Circuit. I have agreed to write a weekly column for Euro Weekly News’ readers, sharing my views on various aspects of the game as well as some of my experience as a touring professional. I will also offer advice I feel can help you improve your golf and increase your enjoyment of the game. Readers are welcome to submit questions through my personal website and I will devote one article each month to answering as many as possible. Given the slightly lengthy introduction, this week’s offering will be short and sweet. While I know that most of our new year resolutions have gone out the window by this stage, the reality is our golfing dreams aren’t subject to the constraints of the calendar year. The game of golf takes us on a journey that can last a lifetime and

it is up to you to decide what you want to get out of that experience. So let’s start to look at why we play the game and what we want to achieve. You wouldn’t get in a car without knowing where you want to go so let’s not make that mistake with golf. I believe we get more satisfaction from any activity if we feel we are improving and moving towards a goal. In your career that may mean a promotion or a raise. If you are learning a musical instrument, it may mean the prospect of being able to play your favourite song. In golf, your goal may be to break 100 or to get down to a single-figure handicap or maybe it is simply to go an entire round without threeputting. These goals motivate us to practice, work well and ultimately lead to more pleasure and greater learning. You know where you are going, you don’t have to know how you’re going to get there yet. So this week, have a think and try and write down at least five things you would like to achieve in your golfing lifetime with three of those being goals for this year. Good luck and thanks for reading. Sorry for giving you homework in my first week. Have fun. Jordan Jordan is available for Private Instruction at Vistabella Golf.

THURSDAY’S individual stableford game was played at Cabopino, and was kindly sponsored by Bob Sawyer. As always the course was in great condition, although it had been set up quite tough with the tees in most cases a long way back. The winner was Richard Littlewood with 31 points playing off 18.2. Second was Sue Cobb with 30 points playing off 20.9. Third was Tim Hemming also with 30 points. Nearest the pin in one on hole 13 was

Tony Sidebottom, with Bill Giles nearest the pin in two on hole 4. The order of merit is getting very interesting; with only 28 points separating the top 10 places. Sue Cobb is now in the lead with 175 points closely followed by Simon Waby and Bob Sawyer. Once again our thanks to Bob and Svitlana for sponsoring the day and the great prizes.

Rounding off the bowling season THE final events of the season at Mijas Bowls Club were the completion of the Handicap Singles.

Mijas League players reached the final of the League Cup in which they met the team from Benalmadena; it had to be played on two days, as on the first it rained heavily and the players were trying to bowl through standing water. Benalmadena came out on top. Mijas team did not win, but it

The Champion of Champions has also taken place. The two represen-
