Have you seen him? Manhunt after expat murder suspect vanishes

70 billion litre perk AN upcoming Costa del Sol drought order might not be as harsh as feared. It comes after heavy rain swept the area for much of the week, with local reservoirs receiving an estimated 70 billion litre boost. And Environmental minister Jose Fiscal has already taken the bold step of announcing that there will be no restrictions on domestic supply on the Costa del Sol.

EXCLUSIVE by Matt Ford Investigators are hunting for the ex-boyfriend of an expatriate mum who is suspected of killing her in southern Spain. Spanish police have reportedly issued an arrest warrant for Simon Corner, 36, who was last April freed from an Algeciras prison on bail. But he reportedly broke the terms of his agreement by failing to present himself at a Costa del Sol police station last month. “As far as we know he’s just vanished,” said Lisa’s sister Helen Jordan, speaking exclusively with the Euro Weekly News. “He was in Spain but the police told us he has broken bail and he could be anywhere as he has access to boats and is most

Helen. “We just need to flush him out again now. “Every day is a struggle, but we’ll keep doing this as long as it takes.” Scottish mum-of-one Lisa, who was 32 when she vanished, was last seen at her

home in Guadiaro near San Roque on November 4, 2015. The alarm was raised when she failed to collect son Marco, then aged eight, from school.

Expat drugs bust Brit sold ‘cannibal’ to holidaymakers A BRITISH expatriate has been held on the Costa del Sol on suspicion of dealing an experimental designer drug that can ‘turn users into cannibals.’ The unnamed 46-year-old was reportedly caught redhanded as he tried to sell the stimulant - also known as MDPV or cannibal - to revellers in a well-known party district of Fuengirola. Investigators seized a bracelet in which the suspect would apparently hide the drugs while on the streets. They later raided his home where they found 14 grammes of cannibal, 50.5 of amphetamines, 48 of cocaine, seven of MDMA, around 20 ecstasy pills plus more of the drug in liquid form, four cylinders of nitrous oxide (laughing gas), a precision scale and €900 in

cash. The arrest comes after detectives were tipped off that a British man was peddling drugs to holidaymakers, especially fellow Britons. He had seven plastic bags containing cocaine in the bracelet at the time, police said in a statement.

NO DEAL: The suspect was held in Fuengirola. MDPV is made from amphetamines and has been blamed for turning users into

cocaine addicts while being linked to a series of vicious biting attacks.

Runaway for second time Investigators have said they believed a ‘violent episode’ had taken place prior to her disappearance. Originally from Alexandria in Dumbartonshire, Lisa worked in Gibraltar and detectives suspect that she was killed, but her body has never been found. Liverpool-born yacht dealer Corner was held in Denmark on a European Arrest Warrant and extradited to Spain after fleeing the country. He was reportedly born Dean Woods and changed his name after repeated brushes with British police, but he has to date maintained his innocence in the case. Lisa’s family have taken their plight to the Scottish government and recently met with justice secretary Michael Matheson. They have amassed substantial funds via their Go Fund Me page, with a reward on offer for any information. Anyone who thinks they know the whereabouts of Mr Corner should contact Spanish National Police on 091 or +34 915 822 900 if outside Spain.

TOP GIRL POWER: The strike will be followed by demonstrations. SPANISH women are set to make their biggest ever stand against Spain’s macho culture. It comes as hundreds of thousands of women will hold their first national one-day strike to demand equal salaries and tougher action against domestic violence to mark International Women’s Day today (Thursday). Organised by The Commission for March 8, a collective of feminist groups, the strike takes place under the motto ‘if we stop, the world stops.’ While the action is legal and women are permitted to down tools for the whole day, national unions CCOO and UGT have suggested a pair of two hour slots - from 11-1pm and 4-6pm - since workers will not be paid while they are on strike. The walk out will be followed by demonstrations and rallies in Spanish towns and cities, most of which are scheduled to begin at 6.30-7pm. And the protest is not restricted to working women, with housewives urged to join the strike, or at least hang kitchen utensils or aprons in the

windows of their homes. Purple bracelets will also be worn throughout the day, and women are being pressed to avoid buying any non-essential items, particularly feminine hygiene products which critics say are subject to a ‘pink tax’ in Spain, while boycotting companies considered to exploit the female image. Men are encouraged to support their partners by assuming responsibility for housework and other domestic tasks, or by joining the protests and marches. Women in Spain earn an average of 14.9 per cent less than men per hour, while there is a recognised career glass ceiling, with the majority of managerial and directorial positions in the country occupied by men. Domestic violence also remains a major issue in the country, with 48 women killed by their partners or ex-partners in 2017. For more information on the strike, see the website feministas.org.

A BRITISH expatriate had to be saved after a river burst its banks. The dramatic rescue came after Storm Emma caused chaos in the Serrania de Ronda. The level of the River Guadiaro that flows through the towns of Benaojan, Jimera de Libar and Cortes de la Frontera rose suddenly, inundating riverside properties. Firefighters and Guardia Civil officers rescued the Scottish woman from a Jimera de Libar property in darkness as flood waters swirled around it. Town halls implemented local action plans, with many properties evacuated, while a rockfall and landslide onto a railway track saw the local train out of service for several hours. The landslide happened on the stretch of track between Benaojan-Montejaque and Jimera de Libar stations alongside on the well-known ‘Walk of Mr Henderson’s railway’ route that was famously trekked by former UK prime minister David Cameron some years ago.

SPAIN’S feminist strike is to be applauded. The decision by Spain’s working women and housewives to take a stand against issues including domestic violence and salaries is a brave one in a country with a strong male bias. Whether or not today’s industrial action and demonstrations spark genuine change remains to be seen, but the Spanish government has been wise not to contest the strike. And if the turnout is anything close to the inspiration for the event it will undoubtedly be a resounding success. In 1975 the women of Iceland decided to strike for equal rights. Around 90 per cent of the female population took part, and the event brought about a seismic shift in the way women were viewed, placing it at the forefront of the fight for equality. It was known as the Women’s Day Off and five years later Iceland elected Vigdis Finnbogadottir, the world’s first democratically-elected female leader. In Spain, women simply hope to be seen as equals. Heavily over-represented in part-time and temporary jobs, women also spend double the amount of time on unpaid work such as caring for family members of household chores than men, according to the National Institute of Statistics. While progress has been made since the 1970s, when women were unable to vote, obtain a passport or buy property without their husband’s permission, there is still a long way to go. And today could mark an important step along that road.

LOCAL LEGEND: Francisco de la Torre.

THE mayor of Malaga is the second longest-serving council official in Spain. And Francisco de la Torre, 75, has revealed that he intends to again stand for office in the next regional elections, scheduled for June 2019. The Popular Party politician has been in the hot seat since May 2000, with only Miguel Antxo Fernandez Lores from Pontevedra in Galicia having served longer after being appointed a year earlier.

lice’s Central CID, Frank Cox, told British media: “This was a really huge seizure and it is amazing that these offenders thought they would get away with it. “They were bringing cannabis into this country with the intention of selling it to street dealers who would spread it across the streets of the North East. “Not only is cannabis an illegal drug but it brings with it a lot of associated crime, which can have a devastating impact on many of our local communities. “With dealings of this scale we almost always find associated violence and disorder so it is important that we take illegal drugs off the street at the source of the problem. “I want to thank our colleagues at Newcastle International airport and the UK Border Force who ultimately stopped this huge haul of drugs hitting our region.”

The unnamed Italian man, 40, also tried to sell a second home owned by his landlord after stealing the keys and making off with sports equipment worth ‘thousands of euros,’ according to reports. Police launched a probe after the owner reported that the two apartments had appeared on the market. Investigators then swooped on the culprit’s home, where they found eight sets of skiing equipment and 10 golf clubs stolen from the other property, plus €2,100 in cash.

Not ‘a place in the sun’ Rain affects filming for C4 show

PAIN IN SPAIN: A Place in the Sun called a halt to filming. THE popular British television series A Place in the Sun has taken a battering from the weather this week while filming in Spain. The Channel 4 TV programme that helps British couples swap the grey skies of Britain for sun, sea and sand abroad came unstuck when the crew encountered bad weather bringing production to a halt. Presenter Jasmine Harman, who has worked on the show

since 2004, took to social media as the crew retreated indoors on the Costa del Sol. In a series of posts, the TV star even joked, “I’m sure it says ‘A Place in the Sun’ on my contract! This is not what I signed up for! I might just have to have a diva strop!” She went on, “The rain in Spain falls mainly on... us!” Before adding, “Whoops! This weather is bonkers! I’ve been feeling left out of all the

extreme weather posts, but now we’ve had torrential rain, gale force winds, glorious sunshine and pea soup fog all within half an hour...!” And then she went on, “It’s not snowing, but just to let you know, it’s not all sunshine and roses here in Spain either!” The popular programme first aired in 2000 and has seen spin-offs including an overseas property exhibition.

Pension fraud discovered A WOMAN in Malaga faces a potential six-year prison sentence after allegedly defrauding more than €130,000 by receiving her

dead father’s pension money. According to reports, the woman had a joint account with her parents, where her father would receive his Navy retirement pension. It has been alleged that between January 1997 and June 2016, the woman received an estimated €130,230 after she failed to notify Social Security of her father’s death in 1995. The Prosecutor told the court: “Once entered into the account of which she was the sole owner, after her mother had died before her father, she had (received) the amount over 21 years, making Social Security continue to pay the pension, in spite of the fact that those who were entitled to such a benefit no longer lived.” As a result, the Public Prosecutors’ Office has reportedly asked for the woman to pay back the money in full to the Social Intitute of the Navy as well as a €4,320 fine and a prison sentence.

‘POSITIVE’: Fabian Picardo welcomed the change in the Spanish government’s tone over Gibraltar.

By Joe Gerrard FABIAN PICARDO, the head of the Government of Gibraltar, said the news that Spain’s statements on the territory had softened was “positive”. The Chief Minister, who spoke during a meeting with Mayor Juan Franco of La Linea, added the change in tone was welcome but needed to be backed by action. “We have to balance the change of tone with the reality of the action that we are seeing. Until we see that action pass and ensure that the political and legal danger is gone for the people of Gibral-

tar we will not be satisfied,” he said. “The change in tone has to actually materialise into action which is positive for the communities that live on both sides of the frontier. “It must recognise and respect the role the Government of Gibraltar has in representing the people of Gibraltar as a distinct and relevant voice,” he added. Picardo said the authority was still concerned over the inclusion of Clause 24 in the draft agreement between Britain and the European Union on the former’s withdrawal from the bloc. The clause would allow

Spain to veto Gibraltar’s status in the transitional period that would follow Britain’s exit from the EU. “It is under [current Spanish Foreign Minister] Mr Dastis that we have seen the inclusion of Clause 24 in the EU’s negotiating guidelines. The Government of Gibraltar considers the clause to be contrary to European law,” he said. Mayor Franco said the foundations were being laid for a new position on the Gibraltar question. “This is a situation that we have to find a solution to, but while doing so we must think of the public that will live with the consequences,” he said.

British Consul comes to town THE British Consul for Andalucia, Charmaine Arbouin, was in the Axarquia region on Wednesday to meet with local healthcare staff and volunteers who work with British residents in the area. Arbouin and representatives of the consular team were presenting the new British Consulate and University of Birmingham website service Support in Spain (www.supportinspain.info), designed to help British residents over 50 find useful in-

formation to help them avoid social exclusion or vulnerability while living on the Costa del Sol. The consul was welcomed to the Axarquia hospital in Torre del Mar by Axarquia area health service director, José Pinazo Luque, and area customer service head, José Luis Checa. Also attending were Teniente Alcalde of Torre del Mar, Jesus Carlos Perez, several members of the AVISA volunteer interpreters group,

the Red Cross, Lux Mundi, local town halls and from other groups. Both the Consul and Hospital directors praised the work of volunteers in supporting vulnerable British residents and hoped the website would be a useful new tool. The team from the Consulate also emphasised the importance of British residents registering on the local town hall ‘padron’ to reduce the risk of vulnerability and social isolation in the future.

THE family who sparked a manhunt when they took their son from Southampton General Hospital to Spain without doctors’ permission three-years-ago has said he is now ‘clear of cancer.’ Following a disagreement with doctors regarding his treatment, parents, Brett and Naghemeh, abducted their young son Ashya from the NHS hospital in the UK so that he could get pioneering treatment in Europe. After a huge manhunt they were traced to a hostel in Axarquia, Malaga, where they were arrested by police and detained for 72 hours. Ashya had a brain tumour which was successfully removed through surgery on July 24, 2014. He received further neurosurgery on August 22. His parents wanted their son to be treated with proton therapy, which they felt was less harmful than conventional radiotherapy. At that time the NHS did not provide proton therapy in the United Kingdom, although it has funded treatment abroad since April 2008 where evidence has shown there to be benefit. In Ashya’s case the doctors did not support moving the boy so that he could get proton therapy, and in

hospital without telling the medical team and got a ferry to France.

An international manhunt was launched and just two days later,

on August 30, they were found in Spain. Ashya’s parents were arrested and he was sent to a local hospital for urgent treatment. The parents were released when the request to extradite them to the UK was withdrawn. The case was taken to the High Court and, on September 5, 2014, the court ruled that Ashya could receive proton therapy in Prague. After the proton beam therapy, Ashya completed his recovery at the HC International Hospital in Marbella. In June 2015 the family told the Euro Weekly News how the cancer was in remission. Father, Brett, said, “It was the right thing to do, I’m glad we did what we thought was right for Aysha. “Look at him now, happy and enjoying the day. “If we had stayed in Southampton, it’s quite possible he wouldn’t be here today,” he said.

DETAINED: Seven arrested for the sale of the girls.

Sister act Girls ‘sold by sibling’ freed TWO girls aged 16 and 17 have been freed by the National Police after their sister sold them for €20,000. Both girls had, according to the police, been sexually assaulted by their Romanian father and had fled to the home of their elder sister for safety. Once there, the sister and her husband negotiated with other local Romanian families to sell the girls for €10,000 each to be married to members of these other families. The first girl was sold to a local family close to the sister in Zamora (Castile and

Leon) and when rescued by the police was found to be ill and had received no medical treatment because the matriarch of the family didn’t think it necessary. The second girl was sent to Valladolid also in Castile and Leon - and when released advised the officers that she had been sexually abused by the husband of the sister who had sold them. In total seven people were arrested for their involvement in this matter and the two girls are now being looked after in a youth centre.

are planned around six months in advance. He said, “When you begin to realise that you’re no longer going to have cheap holidays in Portugal or Spain or Italy, you’ve got to drive to Scotland or get a ferry to Ireland as your only holiday options, maybe we’ll begin to rethink the whole Brexit debate. “You were promised you could leave the EU and everything would stay the same.

Gun control Arms dealer held in raids IN an investigation that has taken almost seven months to complete, officers from the Guardia Civil have arrested an illegal arms dealer and seized a number of firearms. Having becoming aware of a number of transactions involving illegally held firearms, a squad was formed to track down the arms dealer and the investigation concentrated on the area of LogroĂąo in La Rioja. The main suspect was a 52-year-old local man who it was believed had at least 20 guns obtained in Spain and more recently from the Czech Republic with authorities in that country confirming their belief that the dealer had taken delivery of at least three firearms from sources there. In addition to the guns, the investigation revealed that the man had acquired

Pop art on both sides of the Atlantic THE Arts Society Costa del Sol welcomes Ray Warburton to give a talk on ‘Pop Art on both sides of the Atlantic’ at the Salon Varietes Theatre, Fuengirola. The talk will be held on Monday at 4.30pm. Visitors welcome, entry is €10. Pop art arose simultaneously in the UK and the USA. While British Pop Art was heavily influenced by the consumer boom and the film and music of the USA, it had its own identity, which was often ironic and selfreflecting. American Pop Art had the superstars including Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. This lecture will explain the differences between British and American Pop Art and why some British artists, after trying it, distanced themselves from it. This lecture will be jargon-free with audience engagement, backed by high quality slides. Visit www.theartssocietycostadelsol.org for more information.

TOPS present a posh frock event FOLLOWING the success of the country evening at the end of February, TOPS is now presenting an evening of entertainment consisting of two plays and a three-course dinner. This will take place at the Carolina Restaurant in Alhaurin El Grande on Friday March 23 and Saturday March 24. The first play is Say Something Happened, by Alan Bennett about an elderly couple who have an unexpected vis-

it from social services. This is followed by the three-course dinner. Then there is a comedy, Don’t blame it on the Boots, by NK Warburton about an amateur acting group putting on Hamlet. Both plays directed by Marjorie Arthurs, who has successfully directed plays for TOPS before. Tickets are on sale at Martin’s and Cristina’s Bookshops in Alhaurin El Grande at €17 each.

THE current group/activity leaders do a great job balancing personal life with U3A. Therefore they have decided to make this appeal. Do you have work and life skills that may be of interest to our members? Following some basic guidance could you run a course or manage a group that our members would find interesting? Courses/activities can run between October and late May. Volunteers need to give a few hours a week, or fortnightly or monthly depending on the course or activity. Occasionally the group leaders need to take a short break for personal reasons and they may need a backup leader to cover or take over for a while. As you will see from the prospectus, the courses and activities are very varied, but if you have suggestions for additional courses or ac-

tivities that match your personal skills please let them know and they may be able to include these if they have sufficient interest from our members. They are currently busy planning for our courses and activities that begin in October 2018 through to late spring in 2019 and would like to continue the many varied courses available to their 400 plus members. For this they need to ensure they have enough group leaders who are willing to volunteer their time to assist them. Please read the 2018 prospectus for the current year (http://u3afuengirola costadelsol.com) and then if you are able to offer your help please get in touch with jeangrange61@gmail. com, the group leader coordinator, who will be happy to give you more details of what can be a very satisfying role and an enjoyable social life.

BRITISH holidaymakers are bargain hunters while the Spanish are ‘memento shoppers’ according to a new survey. The study by American market research consultant Horizon Consumer Science saw more than 22,000 globetrotters from 37 countries quizzed over their shopping habits while travelling. And the results showed that British tourists tend to overlook premium brands and local products in favour of items that they can pick up more cheaply than in the UK, including tobacco and alcohol. They also spend little time planning

Air fares set to plunge in Spain SPAIN will soon have the cheapest air fares in Europe. It comes after Development Minister Iñigo de la Serna revealed that national air navigation manager Enaire is to lower tariffs by 12 per cent. Rates have been frozen since 2012 and were expected to fall by 4 per cent this year. But by tripling the cutbacks, officials expect the price of flights to tumble. Mr de la Serna said that the

scaling down of tariffs will “make the European navigation service more competitive,” adding that he expects carriers “to maintain a policy of co-responsibility with the effort that is being made” and transfer a portion of the savings to ticket prices. Secretary of state for infrastructure, Julio Gomez-Pomar, added that the government is “pushing” and “insisting” for airlines to slash ticket prices.

SPAIN’S TV duopoly has strengthened its grip on the market. Media group Atresmedia, owner of channels Antena 3 and La Sexta, reported a profit of €142.1 million, a 10 per cent increase on 2016 and its best result since 2008. Meanwhile Italy-based Mediaset, the country’s leader in audience ratings and advertising revenue through its channels Cuatro and Telecinco, among others, raked in €197.5 million profit for an increase of 15 per cent.

According to Dutch professional services firm KPMG LLP, foreign residents of France, Spain, Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands earning average salaries of €250,000 per year now fork out less tax and social security than those living in the UK. In Spain, expatriates receiving their salaries from companies registered outside the country pay a special rate of 24 per cent on income up to €600,000.

Gender equality boost FOUR major Spanish companies have been included in Bloomberg’s Gender Equality Index 2018. Electricity firm Iberdrola, and telecommunications behemoth Telefonica plus banking groups Santander and BBVA all appear in the business media specialist’s latest ranking of the world’s 104 most gender diverse businesses. Spanning 24 countries, the report comes as thousands of women strike across Spain to mark International Women’s Day today (Thursday). Chosen companies demonstrate diversity from director level and most have developed a ‘structured strategy’ aimed at ensuring diversity in the workplace. Marta Garcia-Valenzuela of Madrid-based consultancy firm Talengo explained that the Spanish quartet do not yet have such initiatives in place, although plans are reportedly on the table. “There is less discrimination against women because they are mothers… but companies have to realise that talent and leadership have no gender, whereas the usual model in Spain corresponds to a male aged over 40 and born into a particular family,” she said. Talengo is working alongside companies keen to break these established patterns including Telefonica, where president Jose Maria AlvarezPallete has introduced several initiatives aimed at promoting multiculturalism, gender equality and ‘generational inclusion.’ A special committee has been charged with implementing the schemes, and in 2017 the number of women contracted by the firm increased by 12 per cent, with 42 per cent of current managers female. Elsewhere, BBVA Culture and Communications director Enrique Gonzalez said that his company is also committed to boosting women via in-

ternal promotions, manager training and changing the way in which internal vacancies are listed. Iberdrola is the only energy firm included in the Bloomberg Index and has five women on its board of directors, while the total number employed has increased by 50 per cent in the last decade and the company’s recently-appointed chief executive officer is female. But Roberto Martinez, director of the ‘family protection’ foundation Masfamilia said that more must be done. “Women are discriminated against because they are mothers, and worse, because of their capacity to be mothers in the future,” he said. “There is no magic solution, only determination and the need for the government to help companies.”

STAFF TO STRIKE OVER CONTRACT DISPUTE EMPLOYEES at American e-commerce giant Amazon’s biggest warehouse in Spain are to go on strike. The decision comes after more than 74 per cent of the 1,100 staff working at the multinational’s depot in San Fernando de Henares, Madrid, voted in favour of the move. It follows months of talks over disputed working conditions during which the two parties failed to strike a deal. The previous agreement expired at the end of 2016, but a revamp proposed by Amazon officials sparked outrage among workers. The main bone of contention is reportedly the decision to switch from a bespoke agreement (convenio in Spanish) to a standard version designed for logistics companies by Madrid’s regional government. Under the terms of the new agreement, salaries for existing staff would be frozen indefinitely while new employees would earn less than before. In addition, workers would continue to only have one in every five weekends off, and supplementary payments

PRIMED TO STRIKE: The warehouse in San Fernando de Henares, Madrid is Amazon’s biggest Spanish facility. for sick leave would be slashed. Ana Berceruelo, an official responsible for collective bargaining for Spain’s largest trade union, the Workers’ Commissions, said: “The company says it has a problem with absenteeism, but we say it is directly related to workload.” She went on to explain that working in the warehouse involves walking up to 20 kilometres per day, with the unions slamming the ‘musculoskeletal

diseases’ and occupational risks involved. Under the current agreement, Amazon pays staff 100 per cent of their salaries when they are off sick for the first time, and from the fourth day of any later periods of illness. But the firm aims to reduce the payments to 50 per cent. “They say that people go on the sick because of these payments,” said Ms

Berceruel. “They are also branding local doctors as liars.” The staff are happy about one of the suggested changes, which would see many of the 800 people currently employed on a week-by-week basis handed permanent contracts, since the new agreement only allows a maximum of 25 per cent of the workforce to be temporary. Amazon said in a statement that its salary packages are “in the high range for the logistics sector, with a complete package of benefits including private health insurance, a pension plan, and life insurance.” But an attempt to make peace by calling ‘friendly and concerned’ meetings with groups of 30 employees backfired and led to the strike call. “They tried to influence us by speaking to us in smaller groups… I do not know if this has been done in any other company but it was grotesque and had a rebound effect,” a source told Spanish media. A date for the strike is set to be announced shortly.

An official from the embattled brand said that its stores in Spain will stay open after announcing that its 106 UK stores will be shut down, with around 3,200 staff facing redundancy. The firm’s American parent company last September filed for bankruptcy protection in the UK and Canada after racking up debts of more than €4 billion and failing to make a profit since 2013. Jean Charretteur, Toys ‘R’ Us director in France, Portugal and Spai n, sai d: “Our stores are being transformed and modernised while we seek new and better locations to expand our network in the Spanish market.”

The future of commuting? AN international technology firm headquartered in Spain has bagged a €2.8 million development contract for a futuristic train. The civil works division of Carbures has been commissioned to design and engineer a prototype passenger ‘capsule’ for the proposed Hyperloop One project to link Dubai with Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Chaired by Virgin tycoon Sir Richard Branson, Hyperloop One is an American company that aims to move travellers at airline speeds for a fraction of the cost. The prototype is earmarked for delivery by the e n d o f t h e y e a r, a n d w i l l consist of a 700-metre tube which will be equipped with thousands of intelligent sensors allowing the system to be tested.

THE BEAUTIFUL FRAME: The painting was sold at Sotheby’s in London.

MASTERPIECE RAKES IN MORE THAN €55M

Picasso piece breaks record the time the painting was completed Marie-Therese was vying with Dora Maar, the model for The Weeping Woman, for Picasso’s attention. The brightly-coloured 22inch high painting had never appeared on the market before, with the former owner having acquired it from the artist’s private estate, according to Sotheby’s catalogue. London-based art adviser Gurr Johns - which buys and sells artworks for moneyed clients - landed the piece plus the sale’s three other Picasso paintings, splurging £73.8 million (€83.4 million) in the process.

A MASTERPIECE by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso has smashed the British record after selling for £49.8 million (€56.2 million) at auction. The Malaga-born painter’s Femme au Beret et a la Robe Quadrillee (Marie-Therese Walter) was bought by a telephone bidder at Sotheby’s London. It was the prize piece in a 47lot sale of impressionist, surrealist and modern art, and obliterated its £35 million (€39 million) estimate to become Europe’s second-most expensive artwork after Giacometti’s Walking Man sculpture, which sold for £65 million (€73.4 million) in 2010. Painted in 1937, the same year as other Picasso masterpieces, including Guernica and The Weeping Woman, it depicts the head and shoulders of his French mistress and muse Marie-Therese Walter. The couple met 10 years earlier, when he was 45 and she just 17, and their daughter Maya was born in 1935, but by

million) at Christie’s as it snapped up at least nine other Picasso works. It remains unclear whether the purchases were on behalf of a single or multiple clients. Sotheby’s first major auction of the year raked in £136 million (€153.6 million), down on last year’s £150 million (€169.5 million) but still a sign of market strength, according to an official. But despite including the most expensive artwork ever sold on British soil, it was eclipsed by Christie’s total of £149.6 million (€169 million). The sales come ahead of the opening of the Tate Modern exhibition ‘Picasso 1932 - Love, Fame, Tragedy’, which opens today having transferred from the Musee National Picasso, Paris. It includes the masterpiece Le Reve, an earlier portrait of Marie-Therese Walter which was bought in 2013 by American billionaire hedge fund manager Steven A Cohen for $155 million (€127.2 million).

Spain’s Ibex firms reveal profit boost SPANISH businesses have been reaping the rewards of an economy that has grown for 17 consecutive quarters. It comes as accumulated profit for 34 of the 35 firms listed on the Ibex 35, Spain’s principal stock exchange, reached €40.1 billion in 2017 according to new data from national security watchdog the Comision Nacional del Mercado de Valores. The total represents a 16.2 per cent year-

on-year increase. And the companies also brought in 7.6 per cent more than in 2016, with revenues approaching €474.2 billion, equivalent to the combined expenditure of all of Spain’s public agencies. Banking group Santander topped the Ibex 35 net profit chart with €6.6 billion, while mining company ArcelorMittal pulled in the greatest revenue of just over €56 billion.

I’m sure it will all sort itself out LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT WELL, the Finns may have been calling it ‘just another Wednesday,’ but when I found myself heading for the Piccadilly underground station, in a temperature of minus four degrees centigrade, (with a wind shear of minus 12!), it certainly felt like the ‘Beast from the East’ to me! Yep, the ol’ boy’s in Blighty again and, with his usual impeccable timing, found himself experiencing one of the coldest March days to hit the auld country since records began. Talk about brass monkeys. Once more I was reminded of one of the main reasons I moved to balmy España all those years ago. On this occasion I was ‘in town’ to accompany my son David on his first fashion shoot (don’t ask!). It all actually went rather well. In fact, as I have now been promised a new Bentley and a villa when he ‘makes it,’ I am delighted that my future, which has al-

‘UNRECOGNISABLE’: London shivers in 2018 and (inset) Leapy’s son on his fashion shoot. ways been somewhat precarious, is now completely assured and I can now relax a bit, dream on Leapy! ‘Course nothing has really changed from my last visit. London is still completely unrecognisable from my particular days of yore, both in skyline and diversity. To me one of the saddest aspects is still the suppression of free speech. On one visit to a well-known large West End store, when I quietly,

but truthfully remarked that the experience reminded me of a mid-east bazaar, my horrified niece fearfully urged me to keep my voice down, before we were arrested or suffered actual physical damage. Ah well, I’m sure it will all sort itself out, one way or another. I could hardly believe one report I read this week. It concerned a young girl of 11 who had been turned out of a

McDonald’s into the snow; apparently for no better reason than the fact that she was wearing a school uniform! In the report McDonald’s proffered no better explanation than it was now their policy to ban any youngster dressed in this manner. Unbelievable? Yes I thought so too. So I delved a bit. It was actually my 17-year-old Goddaughter who came up with the reason for this seemingly unacceptable policy.

Apparently school uniforms are looked upon as a way of rival factions identifying themselves. It appears after experiencing a number of altercations and violence between children of opposing schools, McDonald’s had decided to ban uniforms altogether. Is that a sad reflection of our day and age or what? Finally, to really take the biscuit on all this feminism and ‘me too’ onslaught we’ve been experiencing of late, I cite the utterly moronic American university feminist, who has seriously begun a movement to eradicate the word ‘Man’ altogether! In fairness she was subsequently shot down in flames by her interviewer, who suggested that, among other things, if her quest were to become a success, she herself would become merely a ‘Wo’! Yep, she would also become a ‘Hu’ of course. Manfred Man would become plain old Fred and the baby Jesus laid in a ‘ger.’ I dunno, what a load of old ‘ure.’ Keep the faith.

S itu ate d in th e c e ntre of the town and having been in business since 1989, these opticians are highly professional, use the latest equipment and are able to speak to clients in English, Spanish and Danish, which is very important

Their opticians are skilled in using their entire range of equipment to carry out eye tests, tonometries (determination of the intraocular pressure) and retinographies (photographic images of the fundus of the eye). Eye tests do more than measure

eyesight, but are also a fundamental health check which can point out a number of potential problems such as diabetes, hypertension, thyroid activity and in some cases even cancer. Happily most tests simply measure the strength (or otherwise) of eyesight and then the experts at Dan Optica can advise on whether

From editorial to design, sales to production, accounts to HR, every single member of the EWNMG team has performed above and beyond the call of duty - often under extreme pressure - over the last 12 months. And while massive thanks is of course reserved for all who read and advertise in the final products, it is those at the sharp end who merit special praise for securing a second consecutive national award after emerging from an especially challenging year. Congratulations to all, you deserve it.

THE EURO WEEKLY NEWS has done it again. After scooping the 2018 Professional Trajectory gong, Spain’s leading English language newspaper has now picked up back-to-back wins at the Spanish Periodical Association (AEEPP) Awards in Madrid. The latest honour comes after the paper was in 2017 voted Best Free Publication at the same event. It follows a ground-breaking year for the paper and parent company EWN Media Group (EWNMG), with sister brands RTN newspaper and Sol Times joining the company’s portfolio after last year’s win. According to the organisers, the award is won by a company “for its successes and outstanding professional journey.” And the EWNMG are justifiably proud after being recognised by an international panel of judges from the upper echelons of European business and media. Having started life in a tiny Fuengirola flat more than 20 years ago, the group now produces 10 newspapers per week from its modern headquarters on the Costa del Sol, with readership thought to be pushing a million. In the past year alone the company has acquired two additional brands, given away a car in a prize draw, raised money for two major appeals, sponsored a motor racing team and moved into its stateof-the art new offices. But what most clients and readers don’t see is the endless commitment of all in-

Many congratulations to Euro Weekly News for this fresh recognition on their work and achievements. It is fantastic to see an English language newspaper thriving in the Spanish media landscape.

THE #MeToo movement is too focused on isolated incidents of male misconduct and must do more than simply ‘collect scalps,’ the historian Mary Beard has said. And I can’t help agreeing with her. The pendulum is swinging, but I suspect it could swing too far the other way thanks to a hefty push from the likes of Twitter. Without due care, #MeToo could become #Allmenarerapists which couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a serious subject that’s at risk of tipping into trial by Twitter - a torch-carrying, pitchfork-wielding witch hunt. Why not concentrate instead on something really meaningful in the interests of protecting women rather than the: ‘He may have touched my knee, but it was difficult to tell, it might have been the tablecloth, but I’m still a victim’ claims that

SNOW JOKE: The ‘Beast from the East’ sparked hysteria. GRID GIRLS: Demeaning, empowering, or neither? make up much of what we’ve seen so far? From another perspective, I don’t quite understand why being a hostess at the Presidents Club or a Formula One grid

girl, for instance, is demeaning, but a photo of a female celebrity posing naked is ‘empowering.’ Admittedly, for decades, women were routinely groped in the workplace, but why carry

on waging a war against men? Surely a better solution is to work with them to help them understand what’s going on and how best to deal with this. Otherwise aren’t we simply storing

up resentment from men when we just single out their bad behaviour? Surely none of us want young boys to grow up in a world where men are scared of putting a foot wrong and no allowance made for tactless mistakes? We shouldn’t be putting all behaviours in the same bucket.

Finally, what about the Beast from the East? The snow that caused road chaos, cancelled trains, closed schools. Ridiculous! It's not like the UK’s never had snow in February/March before, but the media nonetheless went into full disaster-predicting mode. But of course it’s all caused by global warming, or Brexit.

Over recent years Neater Heaters have become the first choice of many expats living in Spain BEHIND our stylish Scandinavian designs are a modern state-of-theart convector heater that can match any on the market for economy and efficiency, and beats all the serious competition hands down on price. The real secret of these heaters is the computer-age technology in the form of extruded aluminium in the construction of the heating element. This material and the design creates a huge surface area for heat transfer, which means more air can be heated for less cost. Neater Heaters use convection principles and are designed so that the electricity you put into the heater is converted to heat as cheaply as possible. When you turn on the heater the element warms up rapidly and heats the air around it, this air rises and draws more cold air into the heater. Because the element is extremely efficient and is designed to have a huge surface area, a large quantity

of air is heated very quickly. If your room has the correct sized heater it will take about 20 minutes to warm up from cold, after which the heater eases off and works at about two thirds capacity, (depending on various external influences). Our heaters are not only efficient, effective, and economical, they are extremely stylish and practical. There is a model that will suit anyone, whether it is the standard Adax Heater, the stylish Beha Heater, or the trendy Neo with digital controls and a choice of colours and, if you are limited for wall space, then available for purchase are factory designed feet to enable the heater to be freestanding. However, last year we went one stage further. We are now sole agents in Spain for the Turkish made Vigo Heater. This heater shares the design technology and

ethos of the current Neater Heaters, but it has differences. The Vigo comes with a carrying handle, wall bracket, and feet included in the price; the larger Vigo models take up less wall space and go up to 2.5kw. They also have a digital display that indicates the reduced wattage that the heater regulates once the room has reached desired temperature, thus saving more money through reduced running costs.” NEATER HEATER DISTRIBUTORS: COSTA DEL SOL CALAHONDA: The Bed Warehouse Spain.

Nick Horne The Rich Pick Freelance correspondent, London, England THE 88th Geneva International Motor Show opens once again today (Thursday). There will be more than 110 World and European Premiers paraded at this year’s show. Over the last two days at 15-minute intervals the world’s press has been briefed by top designers, professional race drivers and the prestigious brand ambassadors of the exhibiting brands. Nearly 10,000 members of the world’s press have swarmed over the exhibition halls close by Geneva Airport where 900 cars are exhibited over more than 77,000 square metres of exhibition halls with more than 700,000 visitors expected to attend over the next 11 days. Among the luxury and bespoke manufacturers exhibiting are three British Brands. Rolls Royce Motor Cars, Aston Martin and McLaren. The Rolls Royce ‘Phantom’ was confirmed by the world’s media as the ‘Best Car in the World’ on the shores of Lake Lucerne six months ago. Rolls-Royce will show why by showcasing three very different Phantoms models each pitched at a different potential buyer of the marque. Aston Martin has returned to Geneva buoyed as the fastest growing automotive brand, with swelling profits and the announcement last week of the highest

TV COUCH CRITIC BENIDORM, ITV1 Wednesdays, is back for another season of fun in the sun. I’m still not sure that the hour-long format works, I think the writing was much punchier with a 30minute slot, but for a show celebrating a significant telly milestone someone is clearly doing something right. The season 10 launch saw Joyce TempleSavage (I would love to know the back story here, is there a Mr Temple and/or Savage in her past and was she ever at Butlins Skegness, maybe 1974?) getting married to Monty. John Challis plays a wonderfully shady Monty and is a great addition to the cast, but one of the reasons I continue to watch is Tim Healy in various states of excessive make-up and figure hugging clothes, including a wedding dress at Joyce’s big day. Episode two saw Jacqueline panic about Kenneth going missing, but of course he returns safe and sound. I’m pleased Joey is back, Nathan Bryon plays this part so well, but I’m not sure about his new friend Callum, who seems to be a taller version of Tiger who has hit the gym. Critics of the show will say the once present comedy edge is slipping, but I think the format is sufficiently robust to withstand

Petrol head heaven eleven days only revenue performance in its history. At the centre of a bullish Aston Martin exhibit is the new Vantage, which is making its global show debut. Still to be tested by the world’s media, this is the first

opportunity to get up close to Aston Martin’s thoroughbred twin-turbocharged V8 sports coupe. McLaren is exhibiting what it bills as the ‘ultimate road-legal track car’; the ‘McLaren Senna’ debuts at

Geneva and sets hearts racing. Solar Yellow and Laurel Green detailing echoes the helmet livery of the legendary Ayrton Senna F1 driver and three times World Champion at the wheel of a McLaren. Just 500 examples will be produced and all are already ‘assigned.’ Each ‘McLaren Senna’ is priced at €839,715 and if further individualised at McLaren Special Operations the price will soar by an extra €335,856 to the price. Legalised for the road but designed for the track the aggressive looks are a powerful expression of McLaren’s philosophy, ‘form follows function.’ Choose from the endless torque of the select Rolls Royce ‘Phantom,’ the heart-stopping excitement of the Aston Martin ‘Vantage,’ or the stark headbanging exhilaration of the ‘McLaren Senna.’ Geneva is a petrol head’s haven once again.

Does the Benidorm holiday need a break after 10 years? FUN IN THE SUN: Benidorm. even the terrible weather we have been having on the Costa del Sol, although I hear the weather is better along the coast and further north. Another show recently starting a new run is Mum, BBC2 Tuesdays. The second season kicked off with Cathy’s 60th birthday celebrations in the local gastro pub, followed by Cathy playing Easter Day cat and mouse with Michael, but it’s a game I enjoy. The show would surely stall if these two ever did manage some time alone? This week Cathy hosted a BBQ and the cat and mouse game with Michael continued. But the stars this week are Cathy’s in-laws, Maureen and Reg, who should have their very own hashtag #sayhowitis. There were some predictable and deliberate misunderstandings on their part but some kinder touches too. The through line here is quite dark and for me, works really well. I need to mention 100 Years Younger in 21 Days, ITV Tuesdays. I’ve no idea where this mess of a show was dreamed up, but I wish the producers had taken a duvet day when

they commissioned it and simply not bothered. The celebrity ant-agers look just fine as they are and wouldn’t be themselves if they were a little less portly, had smoother skin or lived on a liquid diet - unless that liquid was Rioja and they lost a few ounces with some tapas in the sun. The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes, BBC2 Wednesdays continued its look at, well homes which are extraordinary, in Switzerland this week. Caroline and Piers (you are right, I’ve no idea who they are either) walked

us through homes made of concrete, a house with vintage cars in the basement and prison cell bedroom. I think the team should come to Spain, I could show them some truly extraordinary homes on the Costas and if we threw in the people who live in them, now there’s a show. You know some potential participants, right? Next week the team are in Japan... Happy viewing. Critique: Adam Whalley-Lewis, Casares, Costa del Sol

Unfortunately, this one never gets old Marbella Moments by Nicole King THE saying ‘a lie can run around the world before the truth has even got out of bed’ is way too true. Scandalous information is spread as quickly and viciously as wild fire - it’s quite a phenomenon. This is why it is so frustrating to see how hard it is to get helpful information out to people who need it and why I hope you can help, please. Many of the foreigners who live here are not well integrated with the local Spanish community, so if they suddenly lose a husband or wife, or one is unwell and needs care or to be put in hospital, they may very well face a serious problem. The Spanish system is dependent on the patients’ family stepping in to actually participate in the care for them, so if no family or friends are around a person could literally starve to death in hospital. The Spanish social workers don’t understand why the patient’s family don’t fly over to rescue them. In Spain family, children and the elderly are cherished and they spend quality time to-

This is the helpful website for all UK expatriates. gether so the thought of not being at a loveone’s side when in need is unthinkable. It is this love and unity that inspired me to raise my family in Spain; it’s nice to see fathers and sons hugging instead of shaking hands and to see that children are welcome everywhere with their parents, day or night. It’s precisely all the things they do together that make them such a tight knit unit, which also

provides this inbuilt support system for all eventualities. Even if we foreigners have families they are often in another country so the questions come up like do we move or do they? Unfortunately it’s never that simple. There are actually many support groups already in existence but until you need something you don’t know where to look and if the Span-

ish authorities don’t know they exist either, what a waste of goodwill and possibly even lives; just due to lack of communication. Again this is one of the main issues to be addressed at the third year of the United Nationalities of Marbella Summit #UNMS2018 (24/04/18) and is also on the top of the list for the British Consulate. Their concern for our ageing international community is such that a website has been launched to compile all information about the support services that are available for all foreign residents who may need help or advice. This website www.supportinspain.info, in both English and Spanish, is for healthcare professionals, individuals and voluntary organisations offering contact details for support with financial matters, social care, benefits etc. Launched just before the end of last year there is a long way to go before it’s complete which is where you come in. Please visit the website, check and add information and if appropriate, send your comments, feedback and suggestions. Please also share this website with everyone and anyone you know. One day I think we’ll all be grateful we did because maybe the lack of communication problem may never get old, but we hopefully will! @marbellanow

CAN it really be 40 years since LPL Commercial Services started collecting overdue accounts and is still going strong? How quickly the time goes. Have things really changed… well many seem to think that the cataclysmic change seems to be the dreaded Brexit! But I’m not really sure that change will be as life affecting as some may think. As far as debt collection is concerned and the recovery of Community debts from owners living outside of Spain, wherever they reside, our success rate has not diminished, neither do we anticipate it doing so. Wherever owners reside there are Statutes in place to protect and assist Spanish Communities and always will be. So when it comes to collection has anything over the years really changed… perhaps it is embodied in the way that our wealth in real terms has increased; personal income, value of property and of course the overall cost of goods and services. Many Communities in Spain, most not more than 25 years established,

Time to be less patient with debts

LPL COMMERCIAL: Help IS at hand to collect debts. have seen costs rise enormously, whether it be heat and power, gardening fees, pool servicing and the general obligations to local taxes and rates. This, in turn, has put an increasing burden on all property owners who are left juggling between income and

expenditure; not helped by the daily threat to expatriate pensions, brought on by pension fund collapses as well as the threat on currencies by the usual trends of commerce, not to mention the perceived threat of future trade agreements.

But somehow we all manage to survive, a little penny pinching here and there and perhaps engendering a little more skill in how we look after our Communities. I think the days are gone when we could sit back and wait a few more years until we get pay-

ment from the debtor that we have not seen or heard of for the last five years. Do we really need to settle for €50 a month when the debt is increasing by €60 per month and do we really need to be generous with time to pay when we see renters enjoying the benefits of a property where thousands are still owed in management fees? So if I am really honest, from a Community point of view, I think the biggest change over these past 40 years is simply the fact that we should not be as patient as we were for the fees to come in, costs rise too quickly and personally I am greedy to enjoy the time I have left in more comfort than I had before, not less!!

Hotel coat hangers...

LEGALLY SPEAKING Motorbikes will save lives

Mike Senker In my opinion

WE answer some common driving questions, kindly provided by members of the Guardia Civil based in Torrevieja, Costa Blanca, who set up the N332 website and Facebook page to help break down barriers.

THE latest two-wheeled addition to the Guardia Civil fleet sees a return for BMW, with the acquisition of nearly 300 BMW R1200RT motorbikes, set to replace the previous R850RT model, which had already started to be phased out by the powerful Yamaha FJR 1300. As well as the move towards more powerful and purpose designed motorbikes, the latest fleet sees the addition of high-visibility colours, fluorescent yellow, required by new European regulations that recommend its use in police vehicles. BMW Motorrad, owned by the BMW consortium, delivered the new motorbikes recently to the Guardia Civil, with the specific role of improving the safety of the officers who patrol the roads and motorways in Spain, and to make the roads safer for all. The motorbikes will be used on the Iberian Peninsula, in the Balearic Islands and also in the Canary Islands and will serve to replace the previous BMW R850RT. In this regard, the R1200RT ‘includes all the elements of safety and comfort’ and have specifications required by the Traffic Department in order to carry out the tasks for which they will be used, such as the installation of a siren and emergency lights, amongst other elements. Francisco Javier Molano, Chief Lieutenant Colonel Guardia Civil in Galicia explained, “The new motorcycles allow the officers to perform speed controls and alcohol and drugs checks, without having to wait for the arrival of other patrols”. The motorcycles provide greater autonomy on the roads and with the new portable

WHEEL OUTLAY: The Guardia Civil has invested in 291 new motorcycles. radars, the officers will be able to set up checks and controls in more areas, and faster than ever before. The new radars are small enough to be carried in the motorbike’s compartments, and can be set up on a tripod or used by hand. The new alcohol and drug testing kits are also small enough to be carried on the motorbikes, allowing for instant checks to be carried out at the roadside at any time, day or night. The Director General of Traffic, Gregorio Serrano, explained that the bikes are also intended to avoid the influence of applications and social networks that warn of alcohol controls. “With motorcycles, these monitoring devices for alcohol and drug consumption will be much more dynamic, since the motorcycle has a greater versatility of use than cars, and the controls will be much more agile”.

Lawyer won’t respond Four years on from completing our house purchase we have paid no IBI, despite numerous visits to the council offices. We do, however, receive IBI bills addressed to the previous owners. The solicitor who dealt with the conveyancing does not return my emails or answer my calls. I have spoken to another solicitor, who tells Stop threatening and act. First, find a Spanish abogado to act for you. Step one should be to approach your provincial Colegio de Abogados, the law society, with all the documents relating to your case.

me that our original solicitor held money back and should have got everything changed into our names. I was told to threaten to take legal action. I have done this and still he won’t respond. What do I do next? I do not want to pay the previous owner’s bills. PB (by email)

They have a department of intermediation, which can require your original abogado

to defend his case. Spanish lawyers have been disbarred and even sent to jail for appropriating their clients’ money. Also, pay the IBI bills. They are really yours, as you own the house even if it is not registered.

IT used to be that supermarkets carefully placed products near the till so us, the punters, would pick them up on the way out. Then there was a hoo ha that, for instance, it wasn’t fair if they put sweets there, kids would start kicking off if their parents wouldn’t buy them some so many shops stopped the practice. To be fair the worst thing that could happen is you’d come home with a) a couple of sulky ankle biters or b) some scrummy chocolate. Then Aldi and Lidl came along and the whole art of shopping changed. Rows and rows of cheap groceries with unpronounceable names. So the wife pops out for some bread and milk and you get a phone call saying, ‘Err have you got the phone number of a van hire company?’ ‘Why.’ ‘I’m in Aldi - I got the bread and milk then strolled down the middle aisles and bought a drum kit and a canoe.’ I exaggerate slightly but recently I’ve found myself the proud owner of a cover to put on the back seat of the car so the dog won’t moult all over the place, pots and pans I don’t need and a padded jacket. This means that all the

money saved buying hurdy gurdy brand products is blown in the middle aisles. It’s the equivalent of a jumble sale come boot fair. I know the answer is ‘don’t’ look’ but I just turn in to the kid having a strop because mum won’t let me look at the sweetie counter. I’m thinking of starting a group called MAA Middle Aisle Anonymous - so all addicts like me can go and get support. Hotel coat hangers? Who decided that instead of the traditional household ones they have the things that are just a stem that you then have to try and get into a fiddly little hole. They would be more at home at a fairground than a wardrobe. Now it’s probably worse for me because of my leg problems but even Mrs S says they are a nuisance and if she says so then it’s written in stone. Do hotels get that many nicked? I mean, they sometimes have the little satiny ones which are no good to man nor beast which are obviously more expensive than the wooden ones, but those can be removed easily. I’d happily pay a tenner hanger deposit for normal ones or just give me plastic ones that they give me if I ask for more. Mind you it’s not as bad as one hotel I stayed in in New York in the early 90’s where they had the ashtrays in the room screwed to the table but that’s another story for another time. columnists@euroweeklynews.com

TECH FOR THE TIMID SOME 22,000 people recently agreed to clean toilets for 1,000 hours after failing to read the fineprint on a phone app. Quite a few diners agreed to give up their firstborn in return for using a restaurant’s free Wi-Fi. They were of course victims of pranks played by software designers, who perhaps need to get out more. But there was method in their madness: making people aware of what they might be giving up by simply clicking ‘I agree’ to get past the Terms and Conditions of whatever juicy software or service being offered. Hands up if you ever read that fine print? In the early days I used to, until it became the length of a Jackie Collins bonkbuster and twice as tedious. Now developers can sneak virtual-

Malaga Expat Consulting here to help your relocation ANY expatriate who moves to Spain is required, after three months, to apply for residency. Many prefer to keep ‘a low profile’ for a number of reasons, one of the most common being that they don’t speak Spanish and are worried about the perceived bureaucracy of the Spanish system. This is where Malaga Expat Consulting (Mexpat) can be exceptionally helpful, as founder and owner Irina Saltmarsh has herself relocated at least five times and lived in many different countries including Russia, Sweden, Germany and Switzerland before arriving in Spain in 2009 to make it her permanent home. Although NIEs and resident’s permits are an important part of the service that it offers, the company is happy to assist in all matters associated with life in Spain, so that clients who started with relocation assis-

FOUNDER: Irina Saltmarsh. tance still use Mexpat for such things as driving licence exchange, car transfers, social security registration and even local doctor’s appointments. The Mexpat team is happy to communicate in English, German, Russian and Spanish, so they see themselves as your trusted consultant and a point of contact to expatriates from their office in Alhaurin el Grande,

covering the area from Malaga City to Marbella as well as inland, in any matters, big or small, requiring help, assistance or simple advice related to living in Malaga Province. Knowing the rules and making sure that you comply with them is becoming increasingly more important with the impending finalisation of Brexit for British expatriates, and the time between now and the actual divorce date means that there will be a whole raft of new legal procedures published at short notice. To find out more about the Mexpat service visit www.malagaexpat.com, call or WhatsApp +34 687 733 743, email malagaexpat@gmail.com or visit the company Facebook page. Office hours are flexible and enquiries are always responded to quickly.

took another 35,000 words of his life. And who knew when buying a Kindle book from Amazon, that it’s not actually yours, as thousands of people found out suddenly a decade ago when the company remotely deleted users’ copies of George Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm from their devices without so much as a how’s yer father, because of a copyright dispute. The supreme irony was of course that it involved 1984, the dystopian novel where Big Brother controls everything. But as long as there are lawyers there will always be fine print. Which we will rarely, if ever, read. Unless of course it’s something along these brief lines: ‘I don’t claim this software is good for anything. If you think it is, cool. If it doesn’t work, that’s too bad. If you don’t like this disclaimer, that’s too bad. I reserve the right to do the absolute minimum provided by law, up to and including absolutely nothing.’

Reading the EULA-gy LAWYERS are divided on whether the typical T&Cs none of us read are actually enforceable. These ‘end-user licence agreements’ (or EULAs) are certainly contracts, usually considered to be legally binding. But our inability to negotiate them violates common law principles of fairness, so they may not be worth the pixels they’re written on. In an ideal world we’d know what we’re agreeing to. Those days evaporated when we all discovered the pressing need for a way to tell everybody online exactly what we had for breakfast. To show how ridiculous it all is, a bored Apple iTunes lawyer once sneaked a prohibition into the music service’s T&Cs, forbidding using iTunes for the design, manufacture or production of nuclear or biological weapons.

Fear and loathing in La Linea AS the year passes so there seem to be more and more reports of drug dealers taking over the border town of La Linea de la Concepcion. In fairness it always had a reputation of being a bit rough around the edges, but recently the storming of the local hospital to ‘rescue’ a major dealer, attacks on police officers and a brick through the window of a reporter ’s car shows things have got worse. The Spanish authorities seem to be able to find plenty of Guardia Civil and National Police officers to man the border with Gibraltar, many of whom

REGARDING Our View 14 to 21 February, I would like to enquire where you got your information regarding the stats which you quote stating that it has become clear the majority of expats voted to stay in the EEC? This is quite clearly false information, in fact you will find out if you do a proper survey that most expats voted to leave, the other false information which you seem quite happy to band around and quote, having found the time to force through the referendum bill, total rubbish and more false information. Isn’t it bad enough living abroad having to listen to the constant drip, drip, drip, of left wing socialist rubbish from the BBC, Sky, Channel 4, the list goes on and on, you need to let it sink in that the vast majority of expats are not stupid. We left the UK because of EEC rules and regulations which here in Andalo are mostly totally ignored unless they suit. I have lived in Spain when it was not inundated with EEC rules and regulations as well as the UK and we were far better off. Colin MacGregor, address withheld

Brain tumour boy ‘clear of cancer’ They definitely did the right thing - any normal loving parents would try to do their utmost for their children no matter what sacrifices they had to endure to give their children the best possible chance of life. Gillian Evans They were on a UK programme this week. He is now in school, riding a bike etc, like all other children. Parents should always research when their child’s life is at stake, even if the doctors don’t approve. They wanted to zap his brain with radiation. The chances of him living a normal life was minimal, if he had survived. Great admiration for the parents. They were very well informed about the treatment their son could get elsewhere. Pamela Doyle Fantastic news, the parents did the right thing. So pleased for them all. Vivienne Mallinder

Editor’s note: Colin thank you for your letter. Our View allows for the newspaper to comment on a range of different matters. In this case, we have a huge pool of expatriate readers and a large number have expressed their opinion that the vote was a mistake. You are of course welcome to your opinion which is why we are happy to publish your comments.

Comments from EWN online Tenant from hell ‘blackmailed’ landlady At least in Spain there are mostly no carpets. Floors you can clean. I had £8,000.00 worth of carpets ruined plus a skip of rubbish left outside. Plus writing on all outside walls. Garden totally left to go to ruin etc etc. In just half a year. Husband was high earner in the city. Proves you never know! Disgusting how some treat other people’s property. Edith Farminer How is it possible to make and live in such a mess? Jenny Dodd He needs to be caught and jailed then sent back to the UK. We don’t want scum like that over here! Ken Officer Tenants have been given every right under the sun which includes ripping off the landlord. I am a landlord myself and

had good tenants when there was an equilibrium in the law in regards to rights of both parties. Today if the tenant doesn’t want to pay that’s fine. If tenants trash your house that’s ok as it’s the right to do anything to your home at your expense as long as there’s a tenancy agreement. The moment the landlord gets a tenant in then in effect the landlord has given up this right to expect his house to be looked after. That is the reason why I sold all my house and that is one of the reasons rents will increase. Jo

Spain demands shared control of Gibraltar Airport Nobody cares what Spain ‘Demands,’ it should start paying its own way first, it’s in no position to be demanding anything. Carl Glover It was almost guaranteed Gibraltar was going to be Spain’s bargaining power! Tina Sexton Gibraltar voted 96/4 to stay in the EU. So to share with Spain under EU rules is no big deal. John Lionel Trailor

IN reply to David from Nerja (Issue 1702). Roger Federer is a gentleman and gracious in defeat, just because he shows emotion does not mean he is a cry baby. He is a man who is not afraid to show how he feels, he never makes excuses if he is not playing well and always praises his opponent. I enjoy watching Rafa as well and have seen him cry also, there is no shame in a man crying with emotion. They deserve to be praised for their genius, not criticised. I suggest if you don’t like it, don’t watch it. Jan Lemon, Mojacar

Glamorous grid girls I THINK we should keep grid girls provided they are not forced to be there As grid children will be all boys that will start another argument as grid girls will come under the ban. Anyway, the grid girls provide a touch of glamour to a male dominated sport. I am a F1 fan and vote for the status quo. Derek, La Marina

Likes Leapy HI LEAPY, I read your article today in Euro Weekly and want you to know that despite your closing comment that ‘that should offend just about everyone,’ it did not offend me in the least, in fact I found myself agreeing with everything you said, as I did a couple of weeks ago with your piece as an immigrant in Spain. I am a UK national and live down here for about three months in the winter and I thoroughly enjoy your column; keep telling it as it is Leapy, so few do these days. David O, UK and Spain

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Awkward situations usually bring out the best in you and this week proves that. In the longer term, you will be grateful to those making things difficult now. Midweek sees you turning the tables, which gives much satisfaction.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) Be determined not to be intimidated by someone who thinks that they are superior. Decide who you will take advice (or orders) from and stick to it. You are not the person that you were in the past and others need to realise it.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Outside influences and pressures make it hard to concentrate. However, finances in particular need attention, so do not be distracted by others trying to put a finger into your 'pie'. Do not be concerned about making changes in your social life because this, in turn, will sort out some of your more immediate practical problems.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) 23

7

Let others whinge if they will. Being determined to get your own way, they will stand little chance. Recent disagreements have left a sour taste. In the best of worlds, things will not always go your way. Life would be boring if that were the case. What you need now is a good dose of realism washed down with some sound financial planning. Be likeable and you will be liked. Simple, isn't it?

Being unusually uncertain of yourself this week could throw confusion into your ordered life. There is a partnership problem to be sorted out. Links with personal matters, however, make this tricky. Let some time pass so that someone close can get the message without feeling pressured.

LEO (July 24 - August 23) Some loss of control over a project is irksome. A new start that seemed so promising seems to be going off course. A real injection of time and effort will make all the difference, however. Midweek, you see things going in the right direction again. Keep finances simple and try not to combine business with pleasure. That way lie complications.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) You are holding a good hand. Deal with the right people and the rewards are high. There is potential for being cheated out of something that is morally yours, so it may be necessary to be 'difficult' or 'awkward' to get what you deserve.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) Being a brave and forthright soul, it is easy this week to dispel the negative thoughts of others. A relationship that makes you hesitate could be of great benefit to you. There is little to lose by 'going for it'. The outcome could be beyond your dreams, something that you have not had many of lately.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Hidden forces are working away in the background. These give good and bad influences but life will not be dull this week. Sometimes you wish others would leave you alone. Not that you are being anti-social. We all reach a point when we need space to think.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Petty arguments should be forgotten. More important things are afoot. Have you heard about fiddling while Rome burns? This may be you at the moment. Avoid wasting time with certain individuals and projects. A little extra effort in other directions, however, yields great results.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Avoiding a decision will not help this week. Who will deal with this matter but you? A relationship is threatened if you do not make a move. Will loved ones always be there for us no matter how much we neglect them? Why take such a chance? We only get out of life what there is willingness to put in.

The science of lying ACCORDING to scientists, most people are generally quite bad at recognising if someone is lying or not. As visual cues vary depending on the person and the situation, they are often unreliable and considered too subtle to be distinctive. Research reveals that we each tell dozens of lies on a daily basis, but that we’re only detected about half the time. Physical cues such as avoiding eye contact and having a higher pitched voice are often unreliable as skilled liars know how to control or disguise them. A study from the University of Granada revealed the area around your nose often gets warmer when lying, which has been appropriately named the ‘Pinocchio Effect’. This tick is easy to detect as the flow of blood to the cheeks usually increases when this happens. Meanwhile, psychologists have claimed it is easier to detect lies from language and speech than body cues. Liars allegedly distance themselves from the subject subconsciously (‘that man’ instead of using their name) and will also use a disproportionate amount of first person pronouns such as ‘me’ and ‘I’, as well as more formal language.

When knee surgery doesn’t work RECENT evidence suggests that as many as 20 per cent of patients who have a Total Knee Replacement (TKR) continue to suffer chronic pain after surgery. That’s a lot of risk, cost, lost time and rehab for no progress. So if you’ve still got knee pain and you aren’t making progress perhaps there’s more to it? Referred pain Everything in the body is connected. And it should all work together as a team. If one part is out of balance than this can cause other parts to work harder, become lopsided... in other words it can cause pain elsewhere, this is called referred pain and is a huge factor that is often ignored as we much prefer to treat the part that hurts! This is why the first step in ANY treatment programme is a full, clinical assessment of the patient. Not just your knee but all parts connected to your knee as well so that’s your foot, ankle, hip, lower back AND the other leg! If you’ve been compensating and overworking your left knee since an accident 10 years ago in your right knee...

By Estelle Mitchell www.thebodyworksclinic.com your left knee is going to start complaining about doing twice the work! You operate on that loud left knee but... no one checked that right knee and now your recovering left knee is still doing twice the work! The three S’s of a ‘happy’ knee: 1. Straight 2. Strong 3. No Swelling Before surgery Dr Donald K Shelbourne, an American surgeon who pioneered the ACL reconstruction also developed the ‘Accelerated ACL Reconstruc tion Rehabilitation Protocol.’ His patients returned to full, daily activities four weeks after surgery! And sport eight weeks after surgery! What makes his process so different? Before surgery the three S’s must be met.

After surgery If you’ve had surgery the three S’s are the focus of your recovery. And need to start the first day after surgery. The longer you wait the more the muscles waste and the harder it is. Use crutches properly, do your exercises and bring the swelling down. Why is straight important? If you aren’t straightening your leg correctly: 1. You aren’t using your foot, ankle, knee or hip correctly. 2. You have a limp and this can cause back pain as well. 3. The joint position is not correct which speeds up cartilage damage (aka arthritis). 4. The quadriceps muscles lose ‘control’ of the knee. 5. Ligaments don’t work properly. 6. The hamstrings are no longer stretched correctly. 7. Puts incorrect pressure on your foot causing ankle and toe problems. What to do? Get your knee, Straight and Strong with no swelling. And if you’re still in pain get checked and get support.

The power of mint FRESH, soothing and relaxing, peppermint has apparently been used for medicinal purposes longer than most other herbs in Europe. Peppermint oil has a calming effect on the body and helps to soothe the skin. This makes it great for treating sunburn or any irritations, as well as soothing sore muscles. It also has antimicrobial properties, which means it can help relieve digestive problems and freshen bad breath. The oil also has antinausea effects because it reduces muscle spasms in the stomach.

Ask the Optician - How can I look after my eyes? Amrik Sappal, Store Director from Specsavers Opticas Fuengirola THIS month we’re looking at just one very important question and sharing our top tips for taking care of your eyes and protecting your vision. We have two sets of tips, one for adults and one for children, so you can share this advice with the whole family. What adults need to know about protecting their eyes: • Stop smoking and eat a diet full of vegetables, fruit and nuts containing Vitamin A, zinc and antioxidants as this may protect against macular degeneration. • Take frequent breaks when you’re working on the computer to avoid eye strain. Every 20 minutes, move away and focus your eyes on something that is at least 20 feet away. • Wear eye protection when you play sports. This is important for children too as in the UK, sport and recreational injuries are the biggest cause of accidental eye injury in children. • Wear safety goggles when undertaking DIY, there are more than 20,000 eye accidents every year and some of these can result in blindness. • Protect your eyes from the sun with the right sunglasses. When buying sunglasses, al-

ways look out for the CE kite mark and ensure that your sunglasses are marked UV400. Cheaper glasses not bearing these marks will not provide adequate protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. What to tell your children about their eyes: • Never poke things into your eyes, not even fingers. • Never play with strong chemicals, like washing-up liquid, washing powder or bleach. Getting these in your eyes can be very dangerous. • Never throw sand or dirt in anyone’s face. • Never look straight at the sun - not even through dark glasses. The bright light from the sun can burn your retina. • If an optician suggests you need to wear glasses - wear them! • Always wear sunglasses in bright sunshine.

To maintain the highest standard of vision and check the overall health of your eyes, it is recommend you book an eye test and visit the opticians at least every two years. Our opticians carry out thorough eye tests that provide professional, comprehensive checks of your eyes and vision. The test lasts about 20 minutes and includes the use of specialist equipment to examine eye health and to determine the correct lens strength and type for you. If necessary, the optician will refer you directly for further medical examination by an Ophthalmologist or GP. Visit specsavers.es.

Hear, hear! RECENT research from GAES, a company that specialises in hearing correction in Spain, has revealed that only one in 10 Spaniards get their ears checked from time to time, while 20 per cent revealed they have never had an ear exam. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there are about 350 million people who suffer from hearing problems globally, and it has been estimated that 8 per cent of the Spanish population suffers from hearing loss. However, 89 per cent of Spaniards said they pay little attention to their ears and 70 per cent consider it a problem associated with old age. However, Juan Royo, a hearing specialist, revealed that there are an increasing number of young people who suffer from hearing problems. Bad habits such as listening to music at a high volume and going to loud nightclubs

are reportedly to blame for the issue, so Royo recommended protecting the ears against loud noise and regularly checking your hearing. The first symptoms of hearing difficulties are: having problems when following a conversation, not understanding some words and listening to the TV or music at a higher volume than usual.

To help keep your ears healthy, you should treat ear infections early, listen to music at a low volume, especially when using headphones and try to keep water from getting into your ears as much as possible.

LISTEN UP: Keep music at a low volume to protect your ears.

EACH year, the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers (SABS) hosts a convention which attracts quartets from all over the world. This is a convention that is only open to delegates but as usual, SABS has organised a special show ‘A Cappella Magic!’ which will be open to the public so that they can get an idea of the exquisite vocal harmony that these barbershop quartets can achieve. It will take place at the Sala Fortuna, Hotel Torrequebrada in Benalmadena on Thursday April 5, starting at 8pm and tickets which cost €15 may be obtained online from www.ticketsource.eu/sabs. SABS has flown in two fabulous a cappella groups from the USA and the UK to wow audiences at this event. Hailing from the USA, Crossroads is a world champion a cappella men’s quartet made up of four versatile, award-winning vocalists. Though steeped in the tradition of Barbershop Harmony, Crossroads enjoys singing a wide variety of musical styles including vocal jazz, blues, gospel, pop classics, and classic American standards. From the UK and appropriately shortly after International Women’s Day, they have the 2017 UK and European champion ladies’ quartet, SoundHouse.

BOOK NOW: The pretty Salon Varietes cast of SPAMALOT.

Always look on the bright side of life BOOK now for SPAMALOT at the Salon Varietes Theatre in Fuengirola from March 16 to 25 before it sells out. Whether you are a Monty Python fan or not you are guaranteed an irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend that will have you laughing until tears run down your cheeks. Adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT is a musical comedy that differs from the film in many ways. Monty Python and the Holy Grail was written and directed by the Monty Python Comedy team

- Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gillian, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. Thirty years after the film Eric Idle’s SPAMALOT (lovingly ripped off from that film) opened on Broadway and won three Tony Awards, including Best Musical while the advance sales, made Broadway history. The show proved equally successful in London and again after the high advance ticket sales, the show’s run was extended before it opened.

His stage name which translates in English to ‘I Bite’ sums up much of his music as well as his ability to become involved in controversy in social media. After the success of his third album Viento Sur he is getting ready to release his new album La Mano En El Fuego and has just embarked on a 15date tour of Spain which brings him to Malaga City this Friday at La Cabaret Club. His music mixes urban and modern rhythms with mestizo and sounds inspired by folklore from both the Mediterranean and Latin America.

Please pass the port PORT, a fortified wine similar to Marsala and Madeira, is produced exclusively in the Douro Valley by Lorenzo in northern PortuBarbareschi gal. Though typically red and sweet, port - taking its name from the city of Porto - also comes in dry, semi-dry, rose and white varieties. Rich and sweet, it is also high in alcohol content due to the addition of neutral grape spirits, known as aguardente. This is done to halt fermentation, leaving residual sugar which boosts the alcohol level prior to storing and ageing in sealed glass bottles or barrels. More than 100 varieties of grapes, all suitable for long-ageing wines, are sanctioned for port production, although only five - Tinta CĂŁo, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional - are widely cultivated. The four main styles of port are: Ruby: Bright red with full bodied fruitiness; the most extensively produced and generally does not improve with age. Tawny: Sweet or medium dry, made from

BACCHUS CELLAR

PORT: Comes in many varieties. red grapes. Can be aged for years in wooden barrels and as a result of the oxidation gradually mellows to a golden-brown colour and gains a caramel, nutty flavour. White: From white grapes, can go from dry to very sweet. When matured in wood for long periods the colour can darken substantially. Rose: A new style made like rose wine, with flavours of strawberry and caramel. Apart from white port, which can be served chilled, port should be served at around 16ÂşC. Vintage ports need to breathe and require decanting. Once opened they are best consumed within a short period although aged types may keep for several months. Happy tasting.

THE home gardener has many advantages from the development of gardening techniques, tools and machines to help ease the work in the garden. Modern technology has contributed greatly to increased production of food as demand for improved methods to increase quantity overshadows the need for quality. Many are now questioning what we can do to improve quality. There is great demand from many people to have better quality food as can be seen by the flourishing of organic product stores and availability in supermarkets of ecological products. Along the way to having increased production through streamlining and controlling the environment many traditional techniques have been lost due to not being economical or their influence is not relevant with the powerful effects that environmental controls from chemical treatments can provide. A home gardener can take advantage of modern knowledge and the ancient gardening techniques that has sustained us for thousands of years. In the Spanish countryside you can find many people that still follow traditional tech-

niques to grow their gardens. Usually they have just been brought up gardening in this way and the knowledge is passed from generation to generation. A neighbour of mine had a flourishing garden based just on compost and had never learned about the use of chemicals in his garden as he had solutions for most problems in the way it had always been done. When he did look at chemical solutions he just thought it was too expensive to solve things he could resolve in natural ways. Of course most natural solutions take time, patience and work that commercial growers could not do and retain a competitive position in todays world. If you have time to adopt more wholesome methods in your home garden you can be rewarded with far more nutritious and health promoting results. One technique that is followed by many traditional gardeners in Spain and around the world is the lunar calendar. It is used to determine the best

timing to plant and harvest different types of plants and other activities in the garden. Many traditional gardeners just know the times for the various activities, having done it all their life but there are calendars available that explain in detail the best timing for different jobs. Booklets on the information of traditional methods are often called farming or gardening almanacs. Usually they need to be specific for your time zone to be accurate for the timing of the Moon phase but you can adjust the time from another zone. They are available in Spain in Spanish and you may find information on the internet. From my experience the climatic and weather conditions are of course a greater influence than the lunar influence but if you are able to really refine your gardening practices to align with moon phases as well, then it can be an additional influence to successfully create an even healthier garden without so much dependency on chemicals.

The healing herb

AS well as becoming increasingly popular in gardens, Echinacea is also becoming more widely known for its medicinal properties. Used as a healing herb for hundreds of years, the Native Americans used Echinacea for more medicinal purposes than any other plant. Echinacea is great at treating colds and flu and has no known side effects. It can also be used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and urinary tract infections and reportedly acts by triggering the immune system which helps to fight off disease. Echinacea is a member of the aster family and grows mainly in Europe and the United States. It is the perfect plant for the Spanish climate as it thrives in hot weather and is relatively unbothered by pests and diseases. It attracts bees, butterflies and other insects helping to make the garden more eco-friendly. The flowers are also good for cutting and can really help to brighten up the house, especially as you can get so many different colours and varieties these days.

A dog is not a human baby David THE Dogman columnists@ewnmediagroup.com

ANTHROPOMORPHISM (not for those that love their dog!) is the word that is used when we believe dogs have the same feelings and emotions as humans and they understand our language. A mistaken belief, of course. Dogs are not small, fur-clad human beings. They are canines. True, they are man’s best friend and companion because their natural instincts and hierarchical society blends into our own, and because they show loyalty and devotion to the hand that feeds them. As we have seen in wolves, this bonding between man and dog happened thousands of years ago when both man and wolf lived similar nomadic lives as hunters, roaming the

MAN’S BEST FRIEND: Dogs do not operate in the same way as humans. country to seek food. The dog’s adaptation to our way of life was assisted and accelerated by man using selective breeding to develop the most desirable features, first to work for us and then to turn them into pets.

Even so, there remain of course fundamental differences between us and our dogs. To take just one example, dogs live totally in the present moment. They do not worry about the past. They do not dream about the future.

was feeding from its mother along with the rest of the litter. It is true the dog is enjoying a pleasurable experience but it is not pleased in human terms. Another example of anthropomorphism is when we believe our dog is ‘sulking’ when it returns home from a stay in kennels, or is grieving over the death of a member of the family. In the latter case, what it will be feeling is the loss of a higher member of the ‘pack’ and the anxiety caused by no longer knowing its position in the family hierarchy. It will also be confused by the vibrations of distress it picks up from the family. Once the ‘pack’ has settled down again, the dog will make a quick recovery, for it lives in the present and doesn’t mourn the past. So please do not attribute dogs with human emotions. Try, instead, to understand their simple canine minds, which are untroubled by so many of our emotions.

Looking for petsitters to care for a cat and a dog this summer ONE of our homeowners in Buckinghamshire in the UK is looking for pet-sitters to care for their gorgeous cat and their dog Nuka. Can you help? Keeping pets safe at home in their own environment These homeowners prefer to have their pets cared for at home when they go on holiday. They like the house-sitters to arrive the day before so they get to know them, show them the routines, the best dog walks and meet the neighbours. For the pet-sitter this is like a working holiday, you choose the person or couple you want to house-sit and prepare a list of things for them to do and they look after your home and pets while you are away. How do you benefit? By registering on our HouseSitMatch network it means you can get to know people

They are not endowed with imagination or feel grief, hate, jealousy or greed or other emotions that bedevil our human society. They do have a high sensory ability which is often mistaken for a kind of sixth sense. They will understand that certain words like ‘Sit’, ‘Stay’, ‘Down’ require the right reaction if they are to be rewarded with a tit-bit or praise. They will understand whether your tone of voice and your facial expressions are good or bad when you are talking to them, in whatever language, but they will not understand longer phrases. We often attribute human emotions to dogs when, in fact, they are reacting instinctively. We assume our dog is happy to see us when we return home and it looks pleased and wags its tail. All it is doing is reacting in the same way a wolf puppy reacts when the pack returns with food from a hunt. It behaved in the same way when it

PUPPY REPLICAS: Barbra Streisand with her cloned dogs. LEGEND of stage and screen Barbra Streisand recently revealed she had cloned her late dog Samantha before she passed away last year. Her two new dogs, Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, were reportedly cloned from cells taken from Samantha’s mouth and stomach. Ms Streisand told Variety magazine the two pups “have different personalities. “I’m waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her brown eyes and her seriousness,” she said. Since the revelation, PETA has come out to criticise Ms Streisand’s decision, with PE-

TA’s president Ingrid Newkirk stating “We all want our beloved dogs to live forever, but while it may sound like a good idea, cloning doesn’t achieve that. Instead, it creates a new and different dog who has only the physical characteristics of the original. “When you consider that millions of wonderful adoptable dogs are languishing in animal shelters every year or dying in terrifying ways when abandoned, you realise that cloning adds to the homeless animal population crisis” Newkirk went on to say, “And because cloning has a high failure rate, many dogs are caged

and tormented for every birth that actually occurs”. If you want your dog’s DNA to live forever, it will set you back at least a whopping €40,000.

We desperately need foster homes and adoptants for our many dogs, especially the small ones and puppies who do not do well in a big shelter. We are grateful for any help offered, including donations of food and blankets. Visiting times are from 13.00 to 15.00 and you can always turn up or make an appointment by calling Denise on 669 018 736. Our website is www.ace-charity.org where you can view all the dogs in our care. (93320) ADANA THE ANIMAL SHELTER IN ESTEPONA.

AT SOS ANIMAL REFUGE we have dogs, young and old looking for homes. Some of our dogs have been with us for some time and would love to find a cosy spot to curl up in and a knee on which to rest their heads. If you have room in your heart and home we 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. If you would like to know more about re-homing, please call 653 257 875.

The top speed at the world’s first real automobile race in 1895 was just 15 mph.

Jaguar reveal new electric I-PACE JAGUAR has revealed its first battery operated vehicle, the I-PACE, reportedly as a direct competitor to the Tesla Model X. First debuted as a concept in 2016, the I-PACE made its official public debut at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday. T h e b r a n d n e w I - PA C E from the British car giants can reportedly accelerate

from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds while one full charge provides a range of 480 km (298 miles) which the company claim can be topped up from 0-80 per cent in just 45 minutes. There are five full seats, innovative storage and a substantial rear loadspace, while the I-PACE also delivers all-surface, allweather drivability.

Its 90 kwh battery is made up of high energy density lithium-ion, which supports longevity as well as periods of sustained maximum power with the car ’s total output registering at 395 bhp and 696 Nm of torque. T h e I PA C E a l s o f e a tures a ‘Touch Pro Duo infotainment system’ which makes it simple to control

all the car’s technologies. 4G WiFi capability is standard and a host of connectivity additions m e a n i t ’s e a s y to keep in touch with the digital world. J a g u a r ’s d e s i g n d i r e c t o r, Ian Callum, told Top Gear:

“What I immediately saw as a designer was opportunity. We’ve done the long bonnet, big engine thing, quite a few times actually, and we’ve done all these sports cars. I’ve got that out my system now. “The shape of this has been in my head for a long time. How could you do a mid-engined family car? We l l y o u c a n ’ t b e c a u s e

Tanks for the memories! A TANK said to have been used in the Gulf War during the early 1990’s is going up for sale online. The Sultan Armoured Command Tank, which has reportedly seen active military service in the last 30 years, will be put up for sale on eBay for just €19,000 (£17,000). Built in 1979, the tank is fitted with a Jaguar XJ6 5.9-litre petrol engine and has a top speed of approximately 77 km/ph (48 mph). Named the ‘Ypres’ after the famous Belgian town from the Second World War, the tank weighs more than 8,300 kilos but can be driven on the road; provided the driver completes a two-day H licence course for tracked vehicles. Seller, Gavin Mayall, told British media: “As tanks go the Sultan family is considered to be very manoeuvrable and agile... and can be accurately driven by almost anyone, all that is required to drive on the road is a two-day course for an H licence.

MOTORING Classic Car Club of Andalucía

www.euroweeklynews.com

Springing forward with the CCC of A Motoring correspondent Ian Giles reports on the latest news from the Andalucia Classic Car Club, the most successful such society in the area and probably in Spain with over 600 members. USINESS as usual for the CCC of A. Always busy the Club has just had its March dinner at Treetops Restaurante at El Chaparral which, as always, was excellent. Well attended and with great food, wines and amazing service. This coming Saturday, the Club has a classic car run and lunch to look forward to. Organised by Stuart Sandon and Rob Walker this promises to be a great day out. The start will be from Venta Los Morenos, just on the outskirts of Alhaurin El Grande, opposite the BP garage there. The finish will be at Simbads beach restaurant near Elviria which is always excellent and a very good menu has been selected by the guys. Cars will depart at 11.00am with signing on and registration done beforehand. Non-members are most welcome to come along and see the cars and enjoy coffee or breakfast.

Changes to Motoring Law in Spain I have tried to keep readers ‘up to speed’ with changes in motoring law in Spain, especially when it applies specifically to classic cars and classic car owners.

Thanks to our friends at Lifestyle Group we have regular input of such useful information. There is some particularly useful information here that will be music to the ears of owners, and more important to future owners, of American classic cars. This is what they have to tell us:

Motor & Driving Law Changes in 2018 Last year several changes to traffic rules were proposed aimed at reducing road traffic accidents, and the risk of serious injury or death. Many of these will be coming into effect in May this year, and we’ve picked out a few which may affect owners of Classic Cars in Spain.

TEMPTING TROUBLE: For any budding Steve McQueens.

ITV This could make things easier for Classic Car owners. When Classic Cars need repairs, owners can find themselves restricted with choice of who they can go to and may have to take the car to a specialist who might be some distance from where they live. In the unfortunate event of an ITV fail, if you need to send your vehicle to a non-local specialist to fix the issue

MINTY FRESH: An oldie but a goodie.

causing the fail, the vehicle re-test can now be done at any ITV station. Not having to take the vehicle back to the original ITV station it failed for the re-test, provides flexibility and convenience for anyone needing to retest their vehicle, and for Classic Car owners being able to have the retest done local to the garage carrying out the repair work, also makes it easier to have their specialist mechanic or vehicle technician close to hand when the re-test is done. Useful in the event of further issues arising.

Historical vehicles Classic ‘historical’ registered vehicles will be allowed to carry a maximum of five occupants, and those that do not have seats belts are to be limited to 80km/h. ‘Historical’ vehicles with lateral

There is also a useful website you can visit: http://lifestyle group.es/classic-car-historicalrules-change. That’s all from me for now, you might be interested to know that I am writing this from a ho-

(side facing) rear seats, are to have the use of those seats prohibited when the vehicle is moving. A variation of this rear seat use restriction will specifically apply to auto caravans, and in some cases will restrict use of seats in these types of classic vehicles, to the driver and front passenger.

American Classics

to ‘Historical’ plates in its original form, ie no EU conformity modifications, such as changing the lights will be required. The dropping of the conformity requirement, makes the import and registration of American Classics a lot easier and also removes what is currently a significant part of the cost. If you have any questions regarding any of these pending changes and your Classic Car in Spain, feel free to get in touch.

A potentially very useful change here for American Classic lovers. You will be able to bring an original American Classic to Spain and register it on-

Las Palmas held on for a memorable draw against Barcelona last week, but were beaten by a last gasp goal against Celta Vigo on Monday, to remain in La Liga’s bottom three just a point behind Levante. The Gran Canarian side could drop to 19th place before they kick off if Clarence Seedorf’s Deportivo La Coruña manage to pick up three points against Girona tomorrow.

Derby day could decide second place by Ben Park MANCHESTER UNITED will look to continue their good run of form as they host red-hot Liverpool on Saturday in a match that may determine second place in the Premier League. Second placed United produced a stunning comeback on Monday as they came from 2-0 down to secure a lastgasp 3-2 victory thanks to Nemanja Matic’s world class winner. While Manchester City continue their march towards the Premier League title, the race for second is still very much in the balance, with bitter rivals United and Liverpool both in the hunt, with Tottenham right on their tails. After returning to second, following their dramatic win over Crystal Palace, another win on Saturday for United would see them move five points clear with just eight games left to play, but they will undoubtedly have one eye on Tuesday’s second leg Champions League fixture against Sevilla at Old Trafford, having drawn 0-0 in Andalucia two weeks ago. Fourth placed will look to keep up the pressure on their north-west rivals as they head to Bournemouth. Bournemouth have lost just one in their last six but have also only won one during that time, whereas Tottenham

Barcelona look to continue title march in Malaga BARCELONA travel to Malaga on Saturday as top meets bottom of the table with just 11 games of the La Liga season left to play. The Catalan giants moved eight points clear after securing victory in their top of the table clash with Atletico on Sunday but will have one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Chelsea as they head to La Rosaleda. A stark contrast to Saturday’s opponents, with Malaga currently finding themselves rooted to the bottom of the league, eight points adrift of safety and without a win since December 10. The race for European football continues as fourth placed Valencia travel to fifth placed Sevilla. Sevilla, who currently sit eight points behind Valencia, kept their faint hopes of a top-four finish alive with a 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, and will look to increase their hold on fifth with a win against their rivals in the race for the Champions League. That is provided that Villarreal fail to

Game, set, match! Bautista Agut wins first ATP crown SPANIARD Roberto Bautista Agut claimed his first ATP 500 series title after a 6-3, 6-4 win over Lucas Pouille in Dubai. Bautista Agut, who came into the match having recently won New Zealand’s ASB Classic, took the upper hand early on in the match as he converted his fourth break point in the third game of the first set. The Spaniard had only dropped one set en route to the final and continued to control the match, fighting off a break point before securing the first set in just 34 minutes. And despite dropping a break in the second set, Bautista Agut battled back immediately to secure a

break of his own and dominated his own serve from then on to end the match. Speaking to British media, the World No 16 said: “I was a bit nervous to close out the match. I have been working a lot this month and I was prepared to manage all the emotions and I did very well in the last game,” said Bautista Agut. “This tournament is very special. It is for sure going to be (always) in my heart and I am so happy I have won a 500 event. “Lucas is a really great player, he has a great future and is playing unbelievable tennis in the last month. I want to wish him good luck for the rest of the season.”

From bad to worse MALAGA’S slim hopes of being in La Liga next season took another dent as they suffered their sixth successive defeat in a 2-0 loss to Leganes. Second-half strikes from Javier Eraso and Watford loanee Nordin Amrabat were enough to succumb Los Boquerones to their eighth defeat in the last 10 games. Malaga, who have only scored three goals since the turn of the year, remain rooted to the bottom of the table, eight points adrift of safety, having picked up just 13 points all season. And the situation may only get worse this weekend as they host runaway leaders Barcelona at La Rosaleda on Saturday. The Catalan giants, who moved eight points clear after a 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Sunday, will undoubtedly have one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League second leg against Chelsea and may rest a few of their key men ahead of the fixture.
