By Keith Nicol TORREVIEJA’S ‘looky-looky’ men were once again the target for the Local Police on Monday. This task force has been assigned to tackle the growing number of counterfeit goods on sale in tourist areas. In similar fashion to the raid two weeks ago, when tempers ran high on the waterfront area, the Guardia Civil were once again called in to calm the situation resulting in them detaining five people suspected of assaulting law enforcement officers. The incident occurred at about 1pm on Torrevieja’s Juan Aparicio promenade when a patrol conducting surveillance proceeded to identify themselves to a group of Senegalese men who were offering

goods for sale. According to the police, much excitement ensued, resulting in the pushing and shoving of the agents, and apparently two pedestrians also stepped in to try and calm the situation and help defend the officers. After arresting the assailants, two other Senegalese citizens then began to ‘rebuke and attack the officers’, according to the police report. The detainees were taken to the Guardia Civil barracks in Torrevieja to await an appearance in court. News of the arrests soon spread among the Senegalese community and friends and family, numbering about 80 in total, made their way to the front of the courthouse where they blocked the street by staging a

peaceful, sit-down protest. The Guardia Civil called for back-up, but it was not required. The new Local Police Unit, tasked with taking counterfeit goods off the streets of Torrevieja, has constantly been at odds with the Senegalese community, who seem to the main protagonists when it comes to offering ‘trademark’ items for sale. These include such brands as Gucci, Rolex, Tag, D&G, Ray Ban and Polo. While these luxury goods’ manufacturers would claim that they are losing hundreds of thousands of euros on sales due to this illegal copying, since Ray Bans sell for €6 to €10 for example, the reality of the situation is that some • Turn to Page 4

Night of the bonfires: Get set for beach fun By Nicole Hallett THE ‘Hogueras de San Juan’ midsummer bonfire festival takes place this week and weekend. On Saturday night, people will gather at different venues along the coast for various rituals, including jumping over fires, to banish demons and bring good luck for the next year. In many towns, larger than life effigies made of wood, paper and cork, often comically depicting politicians and/or celebrities, are burnt to the ground on Sunday evening This year the effigies are located in Barrios de La Punta, El Acequion and Molinos del Calvario in Torrevieja. One of the tallest is 10 metres high. The bonfires will take place at around midnight. On Saturday night most of the activity will take place on Paseo Juan Aparicio, close to the artificial pools on the waterfront.

LEAP FOR LUCK: Jumping over the bonfire. The fireworks display set to music called ‘Grand Castle of Fireworks’ will start at midnight. Last year more than 5,000 people attended the event. It is traditional for families and friends to gather on the beach

Due to cuts in the festival’s budget, the amount spent this year in Alicante was €557,000, €40,000 less than last year and the prize fund for the best effigies was reduced from €28,750 to €17,000. However, the city will still offer processions, music and light, good food and concerts. Security forces have been stepped up with 352 local police officers, 160 firefighters and 120 Civil Protection volunteers on duty. Due to the festivities, around 300 roads are cut to traffic and bus routes modified until Monday. The town hall has urged people to use the buses to get to the various festivities.

Fake ID criminals living high life in Alicante A GANG of criminals, who had been living a lavish lifestyle in plush villas in Alicante, have been arrested and sentenced by British Metropolitan Police. From the Costa Blanca base the gang were operating a business specialising in fake IDs and documents, as well as providing tips on how to commit fraud. The online ‘business’ was called Confidential Access (CA). The heads of CA

handled the running of the operation from Spain, while UK staff monitored the website and produced the fake IDs and documents. According to Metropolitan Police, CA’s ‘authentic-looking documents’ were sold in bundles, offering full credit profiles, including wage slips, credit history printouts and a postal address. One of CA’s most exclusive packages was called

the platinum profile. At a cost of £5,500, it offered detailed instructions on how to commit identity fraud. These fake bundles made it possible for CA customers to defraud companies out of thousands of pounds. Police, who spent two-and-a-half years investigating CA before making their arrests, are now concentrating on trying to track down the gang’s 11,000 clients.

For British ace Lewis Hamilton and his McClaren Mercedes at present top the 2012 Formula One driver standings with 88 points, immediately followed by Spain’s Fernando Alonso who has amassed 86 points so far this season in his Ferrari. Both former world champions, each will be keen to gain the honours this weekend with Alonso able to

look back to finishing in second place in the same race last year, two places ahead of Hamilton. By the end of the 2011 championship season Alonso finished fourth in the overall standards, one place ahead of Hamilton. The current world champion is Sebastian Vettel, the German driver who drives for Red Bull, and who is at present standing third overall this season, just one point behind Alonso. In the last Forumla One race - the Canadian Grand Prix held earlier this month - Hamilton took the main honours while Alonso finished fifth.

Pedlar arrests From Front Page tourists are quite happy to spend less than ₏10 on an impulse buy on a fun item, but less likely to drop ₏100-plus on the real thing. Thus the actual loss to the trademark holders is minimal, next to nothing, as those purchasing these items are well aware that they’re not the real thing. However, local shop owners quite rightly complain that the money spent on these illegal items on the seafront is potential revenue that they lose out on.

Electronic billing to save the planet introduced By Keith Nicol IT is well known that Torrevieja has one of Spain’s best-managed, recycled waste water systems. As far back as 2004, Torrevieja earned national distinction as a ‘Sustainable City’ in the field of Integrated Water Cycle for their use of sustainable management of water resources. This week the city took this process even further when the Miguel Hernández University (UMH) in Elche signed a collaboration agreement with Aquagest Levante, Aguas del Arco del Mediterráneo (AGAMED) and Aigües i Sanejament d’Elx, which will develop compost derived from sewage sludge. The Group of Applied Research in Agrochemicals and the Environment (GIAMMA) of the UMH conducted the study to obtain this organic fertiliser to be used in reforestation campaigns with forest trees and shrubs in the Mediterranean. The agreement aims to carry out a study to develop a compost that can be used to improve the surroundings when planting species to repopulate green areas of the municipality. This type of product ensures the proper

Reforestation activities will take place in the landscape of Lo Albentosa in Torrevieja and the Clot de Galvany in Elche and part of the Programa de Factura Electrónica (Electronic Invoice Programme), adopted by the signatory companies. The goal is to repopulate these areas with more than 5,000 specimens of native species.

Aguas del Arco Mediterráneo (AGAMED) and Aigües d’Elx will plant a tree for every customer who signs up for the paperless billing service with the slogan ‘No pases factura al planeta’ (Do not pass your bills to the planet). This environmental initiative is to reduce the CO2 footprint by decreasing the volume of paper consumed and the energy cost of distribution to increase the forest.

NEW ZONES: Drivers can park in designated areas.

Park free for an hour By Keith Nicol

AN extra 100 parking places have been temporarily created on Torrevieja’s downtown streets. The new parking zones allow drivers to park for an hour in designated areas between the hours of 10am-1pm and from 5pm-9pm each evening. The new regulations apply to Calles Bazán, Orihuela, Rambla Juan Mateo, Ramon Gallud and a zone on Paseo de La Libertad. However, many drivers are still unaware of the new regulations especially on the main thoroughfare of Ramon Gallud, where parking has not been permitted for many years. The parking restrictions are being monitored by Torrevieja’s camera system.

A BLOTTO binman in Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony, could be fined €1,000 and lose his job after doing the rounds for more than three hours, nearly 10 times over the legal alcohol limit for driving.

Bank worker held for ‘stealing’ €450,000 A BANK employee who allegedly stole €450,000 from Caja Mediterraneo (CAM) in Yecla (Murcia) in

April has been arrested and sent to prison. Officers were only able to recover €100,000.

He was found at a property in central Badajoznear the border with Portugal - the day after his accomplice was arrested in Molina de Segura (Murica). An international arrest warrant had been issued for him as investigators believed he may have fled to South America. Meanwhile, the investigation into another

case of a bank employee making off with money is still open. Investigators believe that Santiago Pelayo Sanmartin Carbon, an employee of Caixabank, could be in Brazil. The exact amount ‘stolen’ is not known. Initially there was talk of €1 million, but later said to be €48,000.

‘Clocking scam’ FIVE people were arrested for allegedly clocking back the mileage on cars and selling them in Alicante Province. Investigations into ‘Operation Estepona’ began in October after someone in Estepona (Malaga) reported they had been sold a car for €4,500 that had mileage of 112,000 kilometres, but the previous ITV inspection showed that the car had registered 241,369 kilometres. Investigations revealed that the seller had bought the car for €3,000 through an advert on an internet site, in which the car was advertised as having more than 200,000 kilometres on the clock.

A GRANADA hospital is investigating leaked photos of surgeons operating on a man whose penis was wedged in a metal cylinder. The images were made public without his consent, said a statement from Virgen de las Nieves hospital, and 'seriously violated his honour and right to privacy and confidentiality.' Doctors contacted the Granada fire brigade after they were called in to help the man after he trapped his penis in the cylinder. They requested specialist equipment to avoid having to amputate. No pictures of the operation were taken or disclosed by medical staff, the hospital emphasised. Neither did any member of staff give permission to take photographs. As well as causing the hospital 'profound distress,' media treatment of the incident showed little respect for the patient, continued the statement. It was an unprecedented case, the hospital admitted.

Four face â&#x201A;Ź360 fine THE prosecutor has asked for a â&#x201A;Ź360 fine for four of the six people denounced for disobedience by the National Police. They participated with dozens of others in the February 10 protest at Miguel Hernandez University in Elche during the visit of ex-president of the Valencian Regional Government, Francisco Camps, to read his doctoral thesis. Six people at the protest were arrested for refusing to identify themselves

when asked. All of them denied any â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;disobedienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and one of them maintains that at all times they were â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cooperativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with the officers, but claimed that officers had chosen who to arrest in the protest; mainly members of the CCOO union and 15M movement. One of the arresting officers reported that some of the protestors had â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tried to move the security barrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;incited the crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; against the officers.

He must answer to a complaint of alleged crimes of corruption and forgery in a prosecution case led by the Green Party through their spokesperson Jose Manuel Dolon. The case was originally filed in 2007, but has faced objection and appeal ever since. He faces charges relating to the case involving the award of municipal waste collection services in 2004. The Torrevieja Los Verdes (Green Party) has reportedly called for a five-year prison sentence and disqualification for 14 years for the former mayor.

Unfortunate accident A BRITISH woman reportedly crashed into a police car. The patrol car was stopped at a red light on the CV-945 in Los Montesinos.

Using the real steering wheel and chassis of a Ferrari Formula One car, the FI Simulator reproduces the feel, sound and look of driving a real Formula One car. The virtual drive has been created to replicate a real F1 car, down to the smallest details. The chassis comes from Ferrari’s factory in Italy, while the steering wheel is made entirely from Formula One electronics. Even the pedals are the real deal. In fact, Fernando Alonso was invited to test the simulator during its construction and ultimately it was Alonso who decided on the settings and pressure of these pedals. The Simulator, which professionals use to practice, also recreates the movement of the car on a F1 track.

Civil servant sold false papers A CIVIL SERVANT working in the Foreigner’s Department (Extranjeria) in Alicante was sentenced to two-anda-half years jail for providing false residence permits to illegal immigrants. The official provided false papers to Chinese and Ukrainian illegals through a Chinese owned immigration bureau in Benidorm. The convicted man’s girlfriend was sentenced to 15 months for her participation in the racket, and the agency’s owner received an 11month term. The girlfriend worked in the records department of the immigration office,

and acted as an intermediary between her boyfriend and a Ukranian national, who was found to have paid her €2,380 for falsely processing applications based on family reunification. The main defendant was found to have received more than €44,000 in bribes over a six-year period. An investigation by the National Police uncovered irregularities in processed paperwork which led ultimately to the above arrests as well as two customers of the Benidorm agency. Police discovered in the home of the civil servant blank documents and original papers used in the fraud, as well as cash receipts for purchase made by the defendant, markedly out of line with his purchasing capacity of his salary. In addition to the jail THE six councillors from the Socialist PSOE sentence and party in Orihuela will leave the council next disqualification for seven Friday, one day before the extraordinary and a half years from plenary meeting.

Bluffing or boasting? Big 4 say no to cash

ROB WILSON / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM

FOUR Spanish banks Santander, BBVA, Sabadell and Popular - claim not to need any of the Eurogroup’s €100 billion bailout money. Economic experts are divided regarding their stance. Some regard it as bluffing, others as boasting. Spain is still in an ‘extreme’ financial situation, they say, which medium term could affect banks now considered in good health. The spectre of future risk prompted ratings agency Fitch to downgrade 18 Spanish banks, including the four now saying they do not need cash assistance. The findings of the external audit of Spain’s banks will play a vital part in deciding which banks need bailout funds, said university professor and financial analyst David Gonzalez. “Right now, any analysis can be biased by what the banks themselves say and which might not be true,” he explained.

DANGER AHEAD? Cyclists heading to work.

With branches in 10 countries and 100 million clients, Santander is the Eurozone’s biggest bank. It makes most of its money outside Spain, including Latin America. This is why it has been less exposed to Spain’s economic and financial deterioration, with a net profit of €5,351 million in 2011. Its assets, which include unpaid loans including mortgages, amount to €337,831 million. It has core capital funds guaranteeing the bank’s viability in a worsecase scenario - of 10.02 per cent, compared with 8 per cent required by the government. It has a 3.89 per cent default rate on loans. BBVA has assets of €597,688 million which as with all four banks include property loans and mortgages, but has fewer clients; approximately 45 million worldwide. It has fewer branches and is less focused on exterior expansion. • Turn to Page 25

European health card is for urgent care only

Q

I recently visited a Centro de Salut on the Costa Blanca and asked for an appointment to see a doctor under the old E-111 scheme, now replaced with the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for tourists in Spain. I showed my EHIC, passport, gave the address where I was staying, UK address, and my UK driver’s licence. But they told me that while it would have been possible to see a doctor with this card a few months ago, the rules have changed and now two documents are You and the needed. Law in Spain Please make clear what is By David Searl needed, not only for me but also the many UK tourists who visit this area. I suspect that I was just being ‘got rid of’. P G (UK)

A

No, they were not merely getting rid of you! With today’s cutbacks in all areas, including healthcare, Spanish officials are keeping a closer eye on expenses and this means that they examine foreign applicants for medical treatment with more care. The EHIC is designed for European Union citizens to obtain emergency medical care in another EU country. While it shows that the person is entitled to healthcare in their home country, the EHIC on its own does not entitle the holder to routine medical care in another country, only urgent treatment that cannot be delayed. Indeed, you may need other documents. A UK pensioner on holiday in Spain can obtain a ‘Proof of Pensioner’ certification which is valid for three months and this along with an EHIC will help the holder obtain services as well as medicines at reduced cost. If ongoing treatment or an operation is needed in Spain, then tourists should apply for an S2 Form from their UK local healthcare trust. Keep in mind also that practice varies from one region of Spain to another. Andalucia may have different regulations from Valencia, for example.

Perhaps the time is ripe for Spain to oppose EU THE rescue plan for Spain’s beleaguered banks was hammered out in the hope that the new money would encourage the provision of loans to businesses, allowing them to expand and take on more staff. This would be a double blessing which would re-boot Spain’s faltering economy and reduce unemployment. But haven’t we been here before, with the European Central Bank’s 2011 one-off programme of cheap loans to national banks so that they could ‘kick-start’ economies, and get trade moving again? Unfortunately, on that occasion, bankers, in employing copy-book practices, used the money to invest in ‘safe-haven’ bonds instead of business loans. Therefore, one can only hope this latest exercise in bank recapitalisation will receive better oversight. But financial correspondents, having initially had time to study the few details available, were less than enthusiastic. Mariano Rajoy insisted that, as a banking recapitalisation exercise, the plan incurred none of the strict EU conditions imposed upon countries receiving full-blown bailouts, but there remains doubt about the source of the money. Is it from the European Financial Stability Facility, or the European Stability Mechanism? The latter comes into force next month, with the question being: will investors wait? Then again, despite Rajoy’s protests, this loan will adversely affect Spain’s deficit, and with Finland demanding collateral before agreeing to anything, little wonder that the markets are nervous. Rajoy must be tearing his hair out. The banks are bowed down under debts accrued during the property boom when ‘bottom-line-profit’

obscured anything beyond the chimerical Eldorado and politicians appeared to be equally myopic. They additionally seemed incapable of realising where the uncontrolled spending and borrowing was leading, or perhaps they were just unwilling to apply the brakes, fearing that a construction industry slow-down might mean eventual electoral defeat. With Spain employing the European Electoral System, coalition governments, with the concomitant ‘horse-trading’, are the norm. Small parties wield power out of all proportion to their actual voting strength, and finding themselves able to hold the government to ransom, make demands, often financial, to benefit their autonomous region. Spending beyond the regions’ means was considered unimportant, with central government often having

no choice but to bail them out. Rajoy, inheriting the banking sector problems, has been saddled now with the regional debts, all adding to the national deficit. The voters, who are worst affected by austerity and the ‘cuts’, have short memories, blaming those presently occupying Moncloa for their hardships, but with the media, including newspapers, radio stations and television channels now blindly supporting the EU and its collapsing single currency, what other point of view is possible? There is a kind of censorship that air-brushes away any contrary opinion, leaving the Spanish people, ordinary men and women as well as those engaged in business, unable even to conceive of any alternative. The euro must be saved they are told, and believe, but when pressed for arguments and facts supporting this view, they (and I include many friends) tend to frown, hum and hah, and swiftly change the subject. Spain needs an active opposition to the EU, and perhaps the time is ripe for the inauguration of a Partido Indepentista de España.

Is the bailout the same as Portugal, Greece and Ireland’s? The loan to Spain is not to bailout the government, but rather to recapitalise its banking system. Before the 2008 financial crisis, the government had relatively little debt and was running a budget surplus. Its problems do not stem from excessive state spending but from the banking sector which was left with huge amounts of ‘toxic’ loans when the property market crashed. Banks need to raise even more money to recapitalise to meet international requirements and cannot afford to do so themselves. The Spanish government cannot either because its borrowing costs have

www.euroweeklynews.com AFTER the Spanish government finally admitted that it needed help to prevent its banking sector collapsing, at an emergency discussion on Saturday 9th June, Eurozone finance ministers agreed to lend Spain up to €100bn to recapitalise its banks. The Eurogroup statement explained that the €100bn total would be to cover estimated requirements and provide an additional safety margin. The loan will be scaled to provide an “effective backstop covering for all possible capital requirements”. The situation is fast moving, but here’s a summary of the key facts after the first few days.

The Spanish Banking Bailout – Q&As

l by Bill Blevins, Financia Correspondent, Blevins Franks

soared with the uncertainty over the peripheral Eurozone states. Borrowing from the EU’s rescue funds means they can borrow at much lower rates. Where will the money come from? The money will be provided by the Eurozone’s bailout funds. One concern for investors is that the Eurogroup statement was not clear on which one, simply saying ‘the EFSF/ESM’. The European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) is the current temporary fund. It is due to be replaced in July by the new permanent European Stability Mechanism (ESM). Loans from the ESM are senior to other creditors and must be repaid first. Germany believes it would be ‘more efficient’ for the loans to be made by the ESM, while Madrid would probably prefer to use the EFSF. Either way, it is ultimately paid

by taxpayers across the Eurozone. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) cannot contribute funds to this particular bailout as its rules prevent it from participating in a rescue solely focused on the banking sector. It will still play an advisory role. Where will the money go? The loan will be given to the Fund for Orderly Bank Restructuring, which acts as an agent for the Spanish government, which will then distribute capital to the financial institutions as needed. The Spanish government retains full responsibility. Will there be supervision? Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy initially claimed the rescue deal was a victory for Spain and that it will not be subject to the same level of supervision as Portugal, Greece and Ireland. He said his decision to seek the funds was ‘the opening of a line of credit’ for the banks rather than a bailout with strict external supervision. However, EU and German officials have since said that it will be monitored by the European Commission, European Central Bank and the IMF – the ‘troika’ – the same as the other bailouts. The Eurogroup statement had also said that progress will be

closely and regularly reviewed, also in parallel with the financial assistance. Is €100bn enough? The €100bn offered is much more than expected. EU finance ministers wanted to take preemptive action and send a clear signal to the markets and public that they are ready to take ‘determined action’. An IMF review into the Spanish banking sector, released just before the bailout request, looked at how Spanish banks would cope with an economic situation where gross domestic product fell by 4.1% and house prices by 20% this year. It calculated banks would need a €37bn injection – much less than the €100bn now on the table. The Spanish government and regulators have so far underestimated the problems facing the sector and the amount of fresh capital needed. Only time will tell if €100bn is enough – investors do not seem entirely convinced. Will this mean more austerity measures? So far it does not look that way, as the conditions should apply to the banking sector and not the whole economy. With regards to Spain’s budget deficit reduction plan, the government claims the goals and premises

are realistic, and the tough measures already imposed will be decisive in returning to a strong growth path. It aims to consolidate public finances to the tune of €27bn this year. Income and savings taxes have been hiked as part of the measures, and a tax ‘amnesty’ is being introduced to collect unpaid tax. If it does not meet the deficit target we cannot rule out further tax rises. Does this mean bank savings in Spain are now safe? They are safer than they were. However, all this has reminded us that cash savings are not an entirely risk-free investment, and not only in Spain. If you have savings amounting to more than the national guarantee scheme, perhaps even if you have less, you may want to take advice from a professional wealth management firm like Blevins Franks on more secure options for your money as well as how to avoid higher taxation. Summarised tax information is based upon our understanding of current laws and practices which may change. Individuals must take personalised advice.

From Front Page Its net profits of €3,000 million last year were €1,000 million down on 2010 but its core capital is high at 10.3 per cent. It has a 4 per cent default rate on loans. Sabadell is smaller with 2.8 million clients. With assets of €105,321 million in 2011, it reported a net profit of €80 million for the first three months of this year, 5 per cent less than during the same period in 2011. Its core capital is 11.8 per cent but the default rate on loans has increased to 6.02 per cent since taking over nationalised CAM. It is precisely because of this that experts believe the assertion that it will not require bailout money is ‘optimistic’. Banco Popular meanwhile has assets of €172,902 million and, together with Bankinter, is less exposed to the effects of property speculation. It had net profits of €590 million last year, has core capital of 9.82 per cent and a 6.35 per cent loan default rate.

LOVE IS BLIND: Beware of con-men who are only after your money. So what are the signs to look out for so that romance doesn’t end up in expensive tears? Con-men know how to tell a good sob story. You’ll hear about their sick mother, their charity work with orphans, and health problems. Everyone has baggage, but con-men really like to play on your sympathies. No honest dater would ever ask for personal information, like bank or credit card numbers. If these sorts of questions ever arise early on in a relationship, virtual or faceto-face, move on fast. If there is too much romantic talk right at the start, alarm bells should start ringing. No one makes such declarations of love so quickly. Daters who are well balanced and looking for a meaningful relationship don’t do this type of thing. Listen to your instincts. Don’t ever let flattery make you do something you’ll regret. Because once the money is handed over, neither Romeo - nor the cash - will ever be seen again.

MORE British families are seeking expatriate life in Australia. While Spain has become home for hundreds of thousands of Britons over the last three decades, Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booming labour market and improving exchange rate is making it an ever more popular destination for UK workers seeking new opportunities. With the ongoing Eurozone problems - including high unemployment - many British families seeking a new life are no longer focusing on elsewhere in Europe, including Spain, but looking further afield, including Australia. There has been a 70 per cent increase in the number of British breadwinners looking to emigrate, often ahead of their partners with the intention of setting up and finding a place to live before their family follows, says Visafirst.com. Australian employment grew by 38,900 in April to beat all expectations as heavy investments were made in engineering projects.

Disabled Chris walks tall with second book A frequent visitor to Spain, multiple-sclerosis sufferer Chris Hales has achieved his ambition to write, with his second book now available in paperback and on Kindle. Nicole Hallett reports. Why do you write? I had to get the stories in my head out and I enjoy researching and the writing process. After first writing while at university, my first book was published in 2009. What is your second book Templar: Call to Arms about? The desruction of the Knights Templar. The action-packed thriller took eight years to research and has already sold more than 1,250 copies on Kindle. Influences? Screen writer and novelist William Goldman, two university lecturers for providing insight into writing, and my Polish wife Aleks, my proofreader.

Looking forward? Writing the Templar trilogy and having children. Other jobs/activities? Money collector for magistrates’ court. Involved with the Masons. Scariest experience? Being told I had multiple sclerosis five years ago provided immense relief of finally having a diagnosis but also a fear for the future. I am now largely confined to a wheelchair and need a large monitor screen to write due to sight problems. Favourite memory? My wedding four years ago. Despite balance problems I managed to walk down the aisle. Book review Page 54

EWN COMMENT Bailout blues SPAIN’S government claims the €100 billion bailout will affect banks more than citizens. Greece is allegedly ‘infuriated.’ But Greece merely waited for funds, assuming that everything would then continue as before, with trouble starting only when cuts arrived. Spain has slashed

spending since 2010 with cuts affecting everyone. It has fought rescue while preparing for the worst. And unlike Greece, nobody expects something for nothing.

Thinner fat cats STRICTLY-REGULATED Spanish banks could not dabble in derivatives and avoided the 2008 sub-prime mortgage catastrophe. Instead, their greed fed on property. But like them or not, banks must be kept solvent for the country’s sake and now they will be. Rajoy’s promise that they must repay their bailout could be a sop. Nevertheless, few won’t relish seeing fat cats put on a diet of Whiskas, not caviar.

L etters OPINION & COMMENT

EWN

I WAS shopping in Iceland supermarket when I had my wallet stolen by a pickpocket. I did not realise this until I got to the check-out and had no money or card. As I explained what had happened to the supervisor, a very kind lady paid for my goods. When I offered to take the money to her home she refused, saying it was a gift. It has made me realise that there are angels around us as well as thieves. Hal Rockliffe, Torreblanca (Malaga)

Acrobatic alternative IT is ridiculous that €30,000 of council funds was voted by the majority of residents in Caceres village to be spent on bullfights rather than employment (Almeria, Issue 1405). It is bad enough this barbaric pastime is still allowed, let alone choosing it over providing jobs for people. The majority of the world is against the torturing and killing of bulls in the bullring. I think instead of doing away with bullfights they should take the example of the ancient Minoans and turn it into an acrobatic show with the men in the ring having to somersault over the bulls who live to see another day. This would take skill and courage and earn those in the ring respect rather than disgust. Nicola Rand, Roquetas del Mar (Almeria)

Sad memories I FOUND the article about the treatment of hunting hounds very upsetting (Issue 1406). The horrific picture brought back memories of when I first found my now much-loved Galgo (greyhound) roaming the campo in much the same state. It saddens me how these hunters can be so cruel, though I am not tarring all hunters with the same brush as I know some dogs are treated fairly. Galgos are so gentle and placid and great with children. Like all dogs they need exercise though actually Galgos are quite lazy. Anybody thinking of getting a dog should consider this breed as they make wonderful pets E Waterman, Mojacar (Almeria)

21 - 27 June 2012 Costa Blanca South The second was that the country has already started on the selfreinforcing downward spiral that leads to a crisis, and there is no-one big enough to reverse the spiral. However, I think that if Spain goes back to the peseta, almost everybody would take their euros out of the country. That is what is happening already in Greece. Or, they might change their money to Swiss francs or pounds Sterling. Max Rueter, by email

Loving retirement Spike the cat snuggles up to his new canine friends

Doggone thought on people ADANA staff members were amused on arrival at the kennels to find snuggled up together in the outside holding pen a cat with the pups. They were even joined briefly by a pair of fearless mice. Anyone of a thoughtful disposition seeing the harmonious way these animals were able to cohabit, albeit for a brief period, could perhaps be forgiven for drawing some unflattering comparisons with our own seeming inability to live peacefully with our fellow humans. ‘The more I see of people, the more I love my dog’ may not be as outrageous a slogan as some might think...

WHEN YOU WRIT E

All letters, whether by email or post, should carry the writer’s postal address, NIE and contact number though only the name and town will be publishe d. Letters may also be edited. Readers who have mi ssed earlier correspondence can see all letters posted on:

Courageous voice READING Harvey Mann’s letter (Issue 1405) regarding slovenly-dressed British tourists I feel so vindicated. Everything he wrote I have thought but did not have the courage to voice. I too get offended at the sight of displays of total disregard for what is suitable to wear on which bodies. I am disgusted by some people’s lack of respect for their appearance and sometimes feel like telling them what to wear. Surely the summer heat in Spain is not reason enough to be slovenly and not care about general appearance, caring merely about layers of false eyelashes and mascara just because they have seen a celebrity in a magazine use it. C P, by email

Far from healthy I WAS horrified to read that 17 pharmacies in Alicante Province are not getting medications (Costa Blanca South, Issue 1406). This is because the Valencia Government has not paid its €160 million debt to them, despite

receiving €110 million from the state to pay the pharmacies. While I understand that there are debts to be paid, surely the money should be given to where it is supposed to be destined for? No wonder there are so many protests going on with all the cuts to the healthcare system. Jay Rogers, Torrevieja (Alicante)

Instilling discipline C CRUMMINGS’ letter (Issue 1406) in which he complained about unruly children disturbing a theatre production brought up an interesting topic. If children are well-mannered and have been taught how to behave in public then there is no problem. However, with the lack of discipline in today’s world this is very difficult to do. Not being allowed to smack their children means many parents are at a loss of how best to instil discipline. Without discipline, some children grow up as menaces to society. Perhaps parenting skills should be taught to mothers-to-be as part of pre-natal sessions. A J, Calvia (Mallorca)

Cashing in on € IN the article ‘No one big enough to reverse downward spiral’ (Issue 1403), Michael Pettis gave two reasons why Spain will leave the euro. One was that Spain had a stronger fiscal position and healthier bank balance sheet than many of its peers when the crisis began.

I RESONATED with Mike Walsh in his article on life after retirement (Issue 1406). After retiring from a highpowered career, many of my counterparts were surprised that I was not at a loss. Instead I love my retirement. I still get up early and now fill my days with what I want to do, whether it is reading a book, pottering around in the garden or meeting friends. However, while my wife enjoys going off on holidays to other countries I am perfectly content to stay in Spain and never travel far again, as this is what I had to do all my working life. N H, Mijas Costa (Malaga)

Alcohol concerns THE article about the two Brits who tried to swim to Benidorm Island and nearly drowned (Issue 1405) portrays the dangers of alcohol. Not only does it take away reasoning power and provide a sense of false power, but also dangerously combines with youth. When I was 20 I visited the US and was appalled to discover the age of consent for drinking is 21. However, I now realise that this is a good thing as the teenage brain cannot cope with alcohol and it has lifelong effects. If anything the age of drinking should be raised to 25! Here in Spain I see children younger than 15 out at clubs and pubs drinking. Brian Low, Benidorm (Alicante)

Top of the pole THERE is a phrase that is often used to finish conversations that drives me mad. It can be heard on TV and radio interviews.The phrase is ‘you know’. Football players are perhaps top of the pole. This has now become a little game I play to see how often this phrase is said in interviews. Top of the league I am keeping was 18 in a 20-minute radio interview. Ray Campbell, Fuengirola (Malaga)

MP in a vest who asked me to take over in the bedroom

LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT

POWERFUL SEAT: A great leveller is to imagine people sitting on the loo!

begging me to take over in the bedroom with his girlfreind as he â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t copeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. No, Leapyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rose-coloured celebrity specs were put back in their case long ago. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found that one great way of levelling people is to imagine them sitting on the loo! Get the picture? It always works for me. One thing emerging from the Leveson Inquiry is that in the light of conflicting stories (under oath, I

may add) some are lying through their teeth. To me the most believable has been John Major. How he must have relished the opportunity to get back at the man who virtually put him out of office. Did it not show the unbelievable arrogance of Murdoch when, according to Major, this Aussie told him he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with the Toriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; European policies and if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change, his companies would not be able to support them?

When Major treated his threats with the contempt they deserved, all hell was unleashed on him. From the sneering Kay Burley on Sky News, to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;grey manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; caricatures in The Sun and other Murdoch publications, he was pilloried for months in what I believe was one of the most relentless hatchet jobs unleashed on a politician. Although there were certainly other factors involved in Major losing the next election, the real damage was done by this powermad media baron, who recently swore under oath that he had never asked any MP for anything in return for the backing of his media empire. Blair told the inquiry much the same story. Give us a break! Do these people think we are all still wet behind the ears? If the inquiry does prove them all to be economical with the truth, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see them all pay the price. Dream on, Leapy!

ONE thing truly enjoyable about the Leveson Inquiry saga is how it is managing to make a number of those previously â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;untouchablesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suddenly touchable. All too often people in high places give the impression they are a different breed than us mere minions; this is why we are inclined to trust and put our, often blind, faith in them. The truth, of course, is that they are no different to the rest of us. Plenty are in fact a great deal worse. I stopped putting these people on pedestals many moons ago. During the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s I often found myself rubbing shoulders with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;upper crustiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The Christine Keeler/Astor scandals began on my Bayswater doorstep, so to speak. Lord Boothbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philandering was also fairly common knowledge in the area. My association with Diana Dors resulted in my observing some VIPs in extremely compromising situations. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget one wild-eyed MP staggering up to me in nothing but a string vest and

Crimes go undetected I

F politicians cannot decide on the rights or wrongs of prostitution God forbid they are let loose on the economy. Being on the game is no longer an opportunity to earn pin money; it is run by international racketeers on an industrial scale. It is a major contributor to the black economy, disease, crime and drug taking; not to mention abduction, blackmail, paedophilia and exploitation.

Images of Spain By Mike Walsh www.michaelwalsh.es

To these infamies can be added a class of murder, which for the large part goes undetected, because the victims are ‘off the radar.’

What regime can monitor hundreds of thousands of girls and boys shipped here from all over the world to fuel this sordid trade? Reliable figures are of course difficult to come by but the best estimates suggest 200,000400,000 women are ensnared, most by mafias. Yes, if the government sanctions that, what on earth else do they nod through their hallowed chambers?

Bending the law A UNIVERSAL malaise seems to be incompetence, corruption and heavyhandedness in uniform. Bent bobbies or bobbies who bend lampposts when drunk seem to epitomise a culture of do as I say, not as I do. A uniformed Police Chief Inspector from Ceuta’s National Police is also

the co-ordinator for services after nightfall. Identified by the initials JLG, the police officer, when driving, failed to co-ordinate his own behaviour. He was first seen colliding with a traffic bollard before picking a fight with a lamppost. He was found to have an alcohol level of 0.90mgs.

Tech-NO

EMPTED to throw my useless laptop against the wall I found myself bemoaning the fact that I can no longer write using a pen and notebook. I have become reliant on and enslaved to technology. Creatively I find it difficult to put my thoughts on paper, preferring to tap away at the keyboard. At what point in my life did the pleasure of opening an expensive El Cortes Ingles notebook and applying ink to a virgin page become redundant? At which point did I stop finding pleasure in such simple tasks. I do not paint using a computer Suzanne has a degree in Fine Art from Goldsmiths and an program and MA in Writing from Lancaster University. She is currently the joy of teaching in Alicante and writing a book for teenagers (which doesn’t have a vampire as its central character). using charcoal or smudging oil pastels has never left me. The feel and smell of a new book will never be COMPUTER ISSUES: What is it about an inanimate object that creates such irrational anger? replaced by a nifty little Kindle (well not yet anyway). The City. At least if a pen breaks it screen on my laptop. And try machines if they rose up in issue is that to replace my only costs a couple of euros at as he might he has never battle against us as in the laptop (which I fear is the Chinese shop. succeeded in making me wish Terminator Films? Perhaps inevitable) will be expensive What is it about an to hurl him out of the window Arnie had had enough of being and my disquiet has more to inanimate object that creates which is what I am sorely thumped and abused for do with the money that will such irrational anger? Even my tempted to do with this stupid freezing momentarily, or float out of my account and teenage son doesn’t annoy me machine. Computer rage is all taking too long to answer a into the cash register at PC as much as the purple fuzzy the rage. Who would blame question.

Costa Blanca South Tentatively and in purple I continue to write in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds (made more difficult as my fingers are crossed). Will I be able to last the summer without having to spend my hard earned cash on a new machine, or can I take that break to Castilla de la Mancha (home of Don Quixote) throw caution to the wind and stay in the 16th century convent of Santa Clara? Will it really hurt me to write on a fuzzy screen? Will the god of electronic devices intervene and miraculously fix my laptop? Or will I spontaneously combust and leave a nasty mess not only over the wall and ceiling but also over the computer which will continue to blink benignly as the firemen scrape up all the burnt bits and comment on the mad woman who wrote articles on a purple, fuzzy screened laptop (still better than being eaten by cats)? On a cheerier note: what is it about firemen? A recent visit from the Alicante bomberos created quite a stir amongst the female staff at school. Perhaps it’s the whole white knight thing, or perhaps it’s the thought of a man who can handle a 30 foot hose without breaking a sweat.

Snow White on Facebook Cinderella on Twitter? S UDDENLY we seem surrounded by fairy tales. This year we’ve got two new film versions of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a romantic comedy Mirror Mirror, and an adult fantasy, Snow White and the Huntsman. Also scheduled is a re-telling of Jack and the Beanstalk (Jack the Giant Killer), Cinderella, The Snow Queen and a Tarantino-style Hansel and Gretel. Add to this two re-imaginings of Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood and a highschool comedy version of Beauty and the Beast, called Beastly. Despite Hollywood’s in-jokes and gender changes, the moral truths underlying all these fairy tales remain. What they offer is a black or white world where good is good and bad is to be punished. And what a modern world, too! Snow White and the Huntsman is rated 12A, because it contains suggestions of sexual abuse, addiction and bloody violence. And just look at how Hollywood could rework some other modern-day issues. In Hansel and Gretel, for instance, the rise in homeless families (didn’t Hansel and Gretel originally go into the woods because their family

through the use of social media and texting. They get so lost and confused that they think having loads of friends on Facebook is the same as having real friends to go out with. They don’t realise their danger until it’s almost too late (obesity, diabetes, heart issues). In the nick of time, the hero sweeps in and gets them out to see the world with activities like swimming, sport... You get the idea. The original Grimm Brothers’ fairy stories were neither gentle nor ‘fluffy’. They were about empowerment and dealing with the bad things that happen in life. In other words, they’re the perfect entertainment for these days of austerity when there’s a longing for a simpler world of good and bad. Small wonder fairy tales are in demand. We need our villains (bankers, politicians, dictators) or heroes (the ‘sleb’ of the moment) now more than ever. A Grimm thought? No, truly, it’s the stuff of fairy tales.

Social networking sites are profoundly transforming society for the better, according to Jim Killock of the Open Rights Group, which campaigns for a free and open internet.

Torquemada, ‘the hammer of the heretics,’ is said to have witnessed thousands of deaths but his legacy of sadistic torture methods gives this man a gruesome historical reputation. Many of us know little more about The Inquisition other than Monty Python’s memorable phrase from the Flying Circus, “nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.” In Mel Brook’s film History of the World Part I, parody

Costa Blanca South and word-play is used to lyrically introduce Torquemada: “Torquemada? – do not implore him for compassion! Torquemada? – do not beg him for forgiveness! Torquemada? – do not ask him for mercy! Let’s face it folks; you can’t “talk-him-out-da” anything!! One of the last roles played by the late Marlon Brando was a cameo appearance as Torquemada in the 1992 film Christopher Columbus. Critics blasted Brando’s performance as uninspired and somewhat distracted. Ironically, the actor agreed with his critics stating that as a method actor, playing Torquemada took him to a dark sinister place that he, Brando, found disturbing. “What is it about Tomas Torquemada which compels the artistic community to keep his legacy alive? Why does Torquemada strike such a nerve? The answers, if there are any, are certainly subjective. Perhaps it is because the gold standard for creative people has long been free speech and unfettered expression. Putting the chains of censorship and restrictions on the impulses of artists is anathema to the creative process. Artists in the fields of literature, and comedy are especially vigilant to the restrictive forces of censorship. The aforementioned artists’ sense in Torquemada a force which is monumentally intolerant, controls thought, physically resorts to torture, and never once doubts the righteousness of his cause.

Abolition: A licence to kill Mike Walsh vwww.michaelwalsh.es Mike Walsh. Based the Costa Blanca, international journalist, author and professional writer: ex-business assessment executive Guild of Master Craftsmen. European correspondent Boston Revolutionary Radio.

C

APITAL punishment, if it doesn’t put a noose under the collar, certainly makes people hot under the collar. The abolitionists call it state murder, which it is of course. I call abolition a licence to kill. A visit to meet prison warders engaged in prisoners’ training once took my feet on a tour of Manchester’s HMP Strangeways Prison. Included was sight of the condemned cell and the final few yards a prisoner took to his doom. I chose to turn my back on the door to the execution chamber; countless others never had the chance to do so. I still recollect the sombre mood on the morning a convicted murderer was to be hanged at Liverpool’s HMP Walton Prison. I think the general feeling was that capital punishment was a necessary evil, and so it was accepted. Abolitionists smugly hold the moral high ground but is it an illusion? Their consciences should be weighed down by the



CAPITAL PUNISHMENT: The final deterrent. appalling deaths of thousands of slain victims likely to be alive today if the final deterrent had not been removed. Murder in the 1950s was so rare an event that the Liverpool Echo, then a broadsheet, put entire pages aside to cover the case over three days. A single murder was discussed in detail by nearly everyone. In my youth one could and did get several years for grievous bodily harm (GBH); this could be no more than a punch-up in a pub. Today, two years in prison, if you discount the statutory two years for good behaviour, is considered the norm for murder. Depressingly, these days, it is not unusual to see several murders reported each week in that one city. As I write, one man killed, another on life support after a shooting in Liverpool. Merseyside has the lowest crime rate of the five metropolitan police regions. Goodness knows what is going on in other UK police regions! If so many murders in any one

city merit only a few column paragraphs, how are we likely to learn what is going on elsewhere? The statistics will be massaged in order that murders most foul fall under the lesser category of manslaughter. Not much comfort for the victim or their loved ones to know the executioner hadn’t actually intended to kill their victim. How many killers would have thought twice before slaughtering their victim had the shadow of the noose occupied their thoughts? A great many, I would have thought. There is an added irony to the consequences of abolition. In New York City it was learned that many victims of violence, including rape, were unnecessarily murdered for two reasons. The penalty would be no more severe if the victim was murdered. And, there was a better chance of getting away with the crime if the witness, the victim, of course, was silenced through murder. Wouldn’t this apply over here, too?

OWNSIZE, upsize or simply plod along; life in Mallorca exposes the weight of our wallets like few other places in the world. Yacht or not, life here is expensive. A small apartment in Palma or the South West coast will set you back a kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ransom; cars are about double what they would be in the UK, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even get me started on the taxes; as you may recall, they are a taboo topic. During my first few days here, I learned the answer to the poignant question: How do you become a millionaire in Mallorca? The answer, I am reliably told, is to arrive a billionaire. So Russian oligarchs can calmly stop reading

now, but feel free to share and spread the joy. For the rest of us, a few options remain. Allegedly, senior government roles on the island come with outstanding, albeit debatable, benefits. You probably have to be local, or at least Spanish, to plump for this one and be good at subterfuge.

LUXURY LIFE: Available for a few in Mallorca. Hefty sales commissions have long been the bane of property ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives here, but have, conversely, set up small empires for the more cunning estate agents. But with business as dry as the Gobi Desert, I suspect they

need to sharpen both nails and elbows to earn enough for a private jet, or island for that matter. As for the property owners, the crisis has seen off any real hope of hitting the big time with any capital gains.

So, what remains? Your bank account basically pays negative interest by the time charges and inflation are levied and the money may or may not be available come tomorrow, despite assurances that the Spanish banks are A-OK. Never has stuffing your mattress with cash seemed such an attractive and safe investment. My idea of setting myself up as a fully-fledged drugs baroness was met with some disapproval by my husband, so I guess I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be going down that lucrative road. Just as well, since I have an aversion to severed horse heads in my bed. And should all else fail, I can alway do a house-to-house search for a suitable Russian oligarch.

Who do you love more? Your familyâ&#x20AC;Ś or the taxman? Fact: Most people make no plans to eliminate or even reduce their potential liability to Inheritance Tax in Spain. Many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think they need to pay Inheritance Tax in Spain. Wrong! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like welcoming the taxman into your family, inviting him to become a beneficiary to assets you have taken a lifetime to accumulate. Of course, no one intends to die, but unfortunately, everyone does. By putting off until tomorrow what really needs to be done today, you run the risk of leaving your loved ones with a truly memorable legacyâ&#x20AC;Ś a whopping great Inheritance Tax bill! But, by doing something today, it is possible to reduce your potential tax charge by 99 per cent! Did you know thatâ&#x20AC;Ś? Inheritance Tax in Spain is levied on the beneficiary, not the deceasedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate, as it is in the UK. Unlike in the UK, there is no exemption between husband and wife.

property is used only for holidays. You could be liable to pay Inheritance Tax not just in Spain but also in the UK. You could be liable to pay Spanish Inheritance Tax on any worldwide assets left to you by your spouse. The Spanish Inheritance charge can be as high as 81.6 per cent. Any jointly held bank accounts that you have with your spouse in Spain could be frozen following death. The house in Spain cannot be sold by the beneficiaries to pay for an Inheritance Tax liability. A beneficiary has six months to settle the liability before a possible surcharge, interest or even fines are incurred. But, with a bit of planning... Your beneficiaries could avoid being charged Spanish Inheritance Tax. You could retain access to your assets during your own lifetime.

Strength games

O

NE of the most popular games to play with any young dog is tug-of-war. In fact there are tug-toys available in pet shops which are designed to give both the human and the dog their own end to hold. These games are invariably won by the dog. We usually allow them to win, because we admire the tenacity and dedication to succeed that they put into the game, despite what we see as our superior strength. Similarly, rough and tumble games are great fun to play, until the youngster starts to get a bit aggressive and then we give up before it gets out of hand. Being a predator and part of a hunting unit, the instinct not to get

injured is very much to the fore. It is for this reason that all dominance/submissive levels are decided through play. To teach a young dog to growl, pull and persevere brings the reward of winning, or to engage upon a rough and tumble and then to give up, are not lessons that we should be teaching it. They are certainly not the games that we allow it to win.

THE great Orders of the Church continued after the crusades, to this very day. The Knights Templar have become the most powerful and respected of the modern world. BUT some want to destroy the order and take their wealth. The American president is this villain. Travelling to meet the president to protect his

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) All may not be what it seems this week and you need to be a little more realistic. This is particularly true when it comes to romance and close ties. Having the wool pulled over your eyes is not desirable and could even see you trip up. A different kind of trip, possibly over a long distance, may bring you face to face with an old friend or relative

LEO (July 24 - August 23) Being at odds with someone close has given you pause for thought. This would be a good time to change the situation for the better. Offering the olive branch is your best approach, but be sure that you are sincere. Sometimes, you are a book easily read.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Such a time of expansion comes rarely, but now you are being handed opportunities. Be sure to make the most of them by being organised enough to take full advantage. With your energy high, you are in a position to steam ahead with plans. Should others feel left out you can find a place for them.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) Having had such a busy time recently you may be craving a quiet period. I am afraid this will have to wait at the moment. Small snatches at tranquillity are possible but the pressure is still on.

Just joking A woman came home, screeching her car to a halt in the driveway, and ran into the house. She slammed the door and shouted at the top of her lungs: “Honey, quick, pack your bags. I just found out that I’ve won the lottery.” The husband said: “Oh my God! That’s really great! What should I pack, beach stuff or mountain stuff?” “It doesn’t matter” she said, “just get out.”

IF ITʼS YOUR BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK: Romantic interests are great but should not be allowed to take centre stage because there are other things that need your attention. Should loved ones feel neglected, try to involve them. Be a little selfish for the rest of this year and it will benefit all later.

order, the Grand Master hopes to prevent their destruction. But the greedy powers of the president will stop at nothing to steal the Templars’ most prized possession: the Holy Grail. A young knight, Sir William, is

charged with the protection of the Grail and of his fellow brothers. It becomes his job to ensure the survival of the Templars. But can the Templars survive? Based on actual events that led to the destruction of the Templars in the 14th century, this is a story with much resonance for our world today.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22)

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20)

PISCES (February 20 - March 20)

Have you been too busy to spend time on yourself? Get your looks and health back on track by using this week to good effect. Revamp your diet and exercise as required. Spend time with people who are supportive and share the same interests.

Meetings and travel dominate this week. Being with those who stimulate and inform will be even more worthwhile than usual. A trip that you are not looking forward to can bring added bonuses. Looking to further education at this time, could see you starting a course.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21)

AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19)

A recent journey has revealed possibilities. It is in this week that you will realise their potential. Nowhere is this truer than your romantic life, which is on the up. Someone who would not normally attract you comes into your sphere or may have done so last week.

Some difficulty in your love life will need to be handled carefully. Unforeseen developments could take you by surprise (especially if you haven't read this in time). Your need is to avoid telling white lies to get out of a situation. Given time, most situations in this category will ease.

A meeting involving business with a senior person brings great benefits. You are wrong to be afraid of asking for what you want because it is necessary. Do not bottle things up. Consider that you have little to lose. When dealing with legal matters, you are well advised to read the small print and look at the timescales involved.

A strong romantic flow to your week could be interrupted. This is because there are some business matters that really do need your attention. Although it is not a particularly good time to make firm financial commitments, there are areas to work on. These are mainly associated with saving money and reorganising.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) This really is a week to get to grips with any healthy eating or exercise regimes. Owing to the influence of Mars, you are in a vigorous and determined mood. You find that your added confidence and healthy glow are attractive to the opposite sex.

HOW TO PLAY Fill the grid so that every row, every column and every 3X3 box contains the digits 1-9. There’s no maths involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)

LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION

This is a spiritual week and you will be likely to want comfort. Give yourself time alone to look at the world around you and enjoy what it has to offer. As the weekend approaches, you will be able to get more into the mainstream and enjoy the company of others.

Drama

BASED on a true story, In Darkness tells the story of Leopold Socha, a sewer worker and petty thief in Lvov, a Nazi occupied city in Poland, who encounters a group of Jews trying to escape the liquidation of the ghetto. He hides them for money and what starts out as a straightforward business arrangement turns into an unlikely alliance as the enterprise seeps deeper into Socha’s conscience. The film is also an extraordinary story of survival as they try to outwit certain death during 14 months of ever-increasing danger.

Afghan charity PERFORMING: Indiana Highway.

U

K BASED Afghan Heroes Charity is organising a fundraiser in Guardamar to assist wounded returning troops and their families. The Highway 4 Heroes will take place in Los Rosales Restaurant, Guardamar, on July 7, from 8pm, playing classic rock and pop hits. Indiana Highway will be performing hits by Blondie, Queen, Status Quo and the Kinks. Tickets cost €10 and include evening supper. There will be a raffle plus merchandise will be available to buy. Funds will go towards providing rehabilitation to thousands of troops. Event co-ordinator Jax Lawson previously won an award for her fundraising efforts, her husband serves in Afghanistan. “It is a nerve-racking job being safe at home when you don’t know whether you will be a widow when you wake up. It must be even worse for the families of troops that are on the front line. They are all so young and have small children to worry about, too,” she said. “So many troops have lost

The Vibe’s top tip... • Ed Sheeran – Small Bump: is the next single to be released from Ed’s debut, and triple platinum album ‘+.’ The track is typically in the style of Ed Sheeran, mainly acoustic with bass drum beats, as his smooth voice glides over the tune singing “You’re just a small bump, in four months you’ll open your eyes.” The single, written by Ed himself, is about his close friend who was pregnant and miscarried at five months; although the song is sung from a first-person perspective. Small bump is currently available to download digitally, and will be officially released as a single this week.

on to reveal that a man was left stabbed and wounded, which left her fearing that she may have jeopardised her singing career, which was only in its early stages. She recalls that she contacted her then manager, Jonathan Shalit, as soon as the altercation took place, and she was eventually arrested and forced to stand at a court trial. Her ex-boyfriend, Adam Bailey, was accused

of dangerous driving and wounding with intent. Magazine The People have published an extract of her autobiography, in which Sean Smith writes: “Incredibly, the arrests of Tulisa and Adam never made the headlines. At least she had the common sense to call her manager at the time of the event. That could never happen the same way today, as she is a much bigger star.”

The Olympic soundtrack playlist is leaked The Coronation Street theme tune, Tiger Feet and Food Glorious Food are just some of the songs that have appeared on the soundtrack listing for the opening of the London Olympics this year. Also featuring is The Eton Boating Song, the Sex Pistol’s hit God Save The Queen, and Prodigy’s ever-famous Firestarter. London Calling by The Clash and Simon May’s Eastenders are there for obvious reasons, as the event is in London, and the Dambusters March and The Land of Hope and Glory to give that natural patriotic feel. However, some of the tunes have caused concern, as the public are not so sure that Her Majesty will take to officially opening the ceremony in front of a global TV audience with the likes of Radiohead’s Creep and once-banned

The V8 powertrain delivers 461bhp and is fitted with a five-speed automatic transmission

featuring both steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and Auto Stick on the floor. The SRT model achieves benchmark performance of 0-100km/h in five seconds and a top speed of 250km/h. The new Grand Cherokee SRT also features Brake Traction Control System (BTCS) on the front differential and a rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential (ELSD).
