Metro strike bring Madrid to halt Practically all workers on Madrid Metro joined the strike yesterday due to salary drop.


National News

Civil Guard dies in explosion The breaking news on Tuesday morning that there had been an explosion at the Civil Guard Training School in Valdemoro, Madrid, aroused fears that the Basque terrorist group ETA were on the rampage again. It turned out that a still unexplained explosion in the school's Explosives Deactivation Service brought down an area on the first floor of the building where some young Guardias were training. At least twelve were injured, none of them seriously. However, the explosions had started a blaze in the basement, where Semtex and explosive materials recovered from terrorists

are stored and it was there that the badly burned body of 61-year-old 2nd Lieutenant Francisco Morcillo was discovered under the rubble. One office worker told reporters that she had heard at least eight explosions. The fire was brought under control quickly and damage limited to lower floors – administrative staff have offices on the upper floors. One office worker, who

refused to give reporters his name, said it could have been a “real catastrophe”. He said office staff should never have to work in a building where explosives are stored. One of the Guardias, who also refused to give his name, said: “We spend our time fining people for not wearing they safety belts, but we are literally living and working on top of an arsenal. Some 200 Guardias live at the school.

An inside source said there had never been routine safety inspections. He added that the building had been used for storing furniture until it was bought by the Guardia Civil to store explosives. The school is located on the edge of the town, which was unaffected by the explosions. Only a huge cloud of smoke indicated that anything untoward had happened there

Victims of terrorism honoured

NEWS Spotlight Pictures provided by readers

To celebrate Victims of Terrorism Day, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia presided at a special ceremony in Parliament on January 27, attended by members of all the political parties and representatives of several victims' associations. By Kym Wickham

Yep, we are right at the end of June and once again the locals in the Campo are still having bonfires. Quite apart from the fact that at this time of the year it is totally ILLEGAL, this practice is so dangerous it is beyond belief that anybody with a single brain cell could even think about starting up a fire. One of my Spanish neighbours told me it was “natural” to have a fire and that he was only burning his garden rubbish and because it was behind his fencing, couldn't possible set the area alight. Rubbish is exactly what that statement is. A fire that is started by a person is not a natural thing, it is a man-made piece of arson at this time of year and don't even think that if you have a hose handy it'll be alright – it won't be. One spark and the whole of the area can go up. That is why Spain has fire bombing aircraft working flat out at this time of year. Apart from the trees, ground and houses that go up in flames, what about people’s pets and the wildlife, let alone the danger to other humans. Every year huge areas are wiped out by either stupidity or fire starters. So please everybody, don't you be the stupid ones by mistake. Take your rubbish to the tip or up the bins and let us all live in safety and peace.

The date was chosen because it was on June 27, 1960, that the first bomb attack by the Basque terrorist group ETA killed a 20-monthold girl at a railway station. In response to the King's call for the political parties to unite against terrorism, another event was held in Parliament on Monday, when the spokesmen of all the parties represented there – the

the families of those killed and to the survivors. In the case of death, families will receive a minimum of €250,000 and up to a maximum of €500,000. A person invalided by an attack will receive a sum between €500,000 and €750,000 in compensation, while people who are wounded but not incapacitated will receive a minimum of €100,000.

View towards the fire on Sierra de Mijas on Monday afternoon

'Savage' metro strike continues The Madrid Metro provided a skeleton service on Monday after only 38% of its workers responded to their union's call for a strike. It came to a standstill on Tuesday when almost all the workers joined the strike. At a meeting Tuesday morning, their union agreed to continue the strike on Wednesday. The strike action came in response to a drop in salaries announced by Madrid's regional government last week.

Meanwhile, commuters were left totally in the dark after the Metro's website went down early on Tuesday morning. Those hopeful commuters who turned up on Tuesday to see if a skeleton service was running were turned away and by mid-morning all the stations were eerily empty. Those few which stayed open to provide information did not allow commuters past the entrances. Buses provided by Renfe were full

to overflowing and there was not an empty taxi in sight anywhere. As soon as their passengers alighted, taxi drivers had the pick of desperate passengers. Union leaders said the strike had been a “total success”. A spokesman for the Madrid regional government called it “totally irrational” and said sanctions would be applied: “We are going to apply the law with all its consequences.”

The fire which broke out on a hillside above Mijas on Monday afternoon was finally put out Tuesday morning, after destroying some seven hectares of vegetation. People were evacuated from five houses and the A-387 road was closed in both directions between kilometres and 7 and 9. It took nine helicopters and ten firefighting teams to put out the blaze, which was the first forest fire of any importance so far this summer.

Catalans called on to defend Statute Catalan regional premier José Montilla has called on Catalans to demonstrate en masse to defend their amended Autonomy Statute which was drafted and approved by referendum more than four years ago. The original text called for Catalonia to be given the status of “nation” rather than autonomous region and it was this, among several other amendments that led the main opposition party, the Partido Popular, to ask the Constitutional Court to declare the document unconstitutional. Four years and several examining judges later, the Court finally decided on Monday to eliminate 14 amendments, but left around 95% of the original text untouched. However, the amendments to be scrapped include the

preamble which describes Catalonia as “a nation” and a clause that gives the Catalan courts judicial independence from Spain’s legal watchdog, the CGPJ or the General Counsel of the Judiciary. Another clause which proclaims Catalan the “preferred language” to be used by all public institutions was also declared unconstitutional. All three issues are very dear to Catalans and on hearing the Court's decision, Premier Montilla declared he would abide by it, but did not agree with it, and would continue to press the region's claims.

Scottish 'cow' heads to Pamplona A van converted to look like a Highland cow will be driven by Mechanic Mikey Sandison, 29, and electrician Gordie Mackay, 25, from John O'Groats to Spain for Pamplona's Running of the Bulls. They will take part in the Ramshackle Rally across Europe during their twoweek trip, which started last Saturday. The 22-year-old vehicle was bought for less than £150 to comply with the rally's rules. After gluing fur used for cushions to the

Abortion figures 'worrying' Health experts are concerned about the latest abortion figures issued by the National Statistics Institute (INE) which show that there was one abortion for every five births last year. They have said this is a cause for concern in a country where the older population is growing rapidly and the birth rate has started to fall again after rising continuously for the past ten years. Even immigrant women – who helped reverse Spain's falling birth rate ten years

ago – are having fewer children. The experts point out that all this has happened before the new abortion law comes into force on July 5th. As the law will makes it easier to end a pregnancy, the experts fear it will trigger a sharp rise in abortions. The main opposition party, the

Partido Popular, has already asked the Constitutional Tribunal to declare the law unconstitutional and more than 60 pro-life associations and groups plan to meet outside the Tribunal in Madrid on Saturday, July 3, to support their demand that it should hand down its decision urgently.

Electricity price agreement

van, they carried out a road test to make sure it stayed stuck on. Mr Sandison said they hoped to raise thousands of pounds for the Alzheimer's Society along the way. The pair also said they hoped to join the bull run while wearing kilts.

Industry Minister Miguel Sebastian and Partido Popular economics spokesman Cristobal Montoro have reached an agreement to suspend an

electricity price rise which was due to come into effect in July. The planned price rise ranged from 5% for medium-sized industries to 10% for households and

small businesses. Despite the decision, the price of electricity will still go up on July 1 which is when VAT will be increased from 16% to 18%.

former Finance Minister Rodrigo Rato, as well as sports stars such as Real Madrid's Raúl, flamenco dancer Sara Baras and bullfighters Francisco and Cayetano Rivera Ordoñez. Most are practising Catholics but not all – David

Hatchwell is the deputy chairman of Madrid's Jewish community. The letter praises the Pope's stand on issues such as religious freedom, parents' rights in their children's education, abortion and paedophile priests.

Corruption harms democracy

EWS IN BRIEF Got a story? Send your stories and pictures to The News

The quality of democracy in Spain has dropped by half a percentage point in the past two years, according to the Fundacion Alternativas' annual report. The foundation was inspired by the Democratic Audits set up in 1993 by the University of Essex to assess the quality of democracy and political freedom in the UK. A spokesman said the main cause of the drop was the corruption scandals

affecting the political parties. He said that for the first time since democracy was restored after the death of General Franco Spaniards now rate corrupt politicians as one of their three main problems. The spokesman said the

scandals were closely linked to urban planning and public sector contracts at local, regional and national levels. He said another cause was political party financing, and mentioned the so-called Gurtel case as an example. The

Foundation said solutions involved limiting election spending, more internal democracy in the parties, and greater independence for the entities responsible, among other things, for controlling political conflicts of interest.

ETA suspect rearrested Fermin Vila Michelena, a suspected member of the Basque terrorist group ETA, was rearrested by police in Belfast last Saturday under a European arrest warrant issued by the Spanish authorities, after being arrested and released two days earlier. A spokesman for the Spanish interior ministry said he was the subject of three arrest warrants. He said that Michelena was part of ETA's

Madrid cell which carried out four car bomb attacks in 2001 and had been on the suspected terrorist list since December 2001. Earlier this year, former ETA member Jose Ignacio de Juana Chaos jumped bail in Northern Ireland. De Juana Chaos had served 20 years for the killing of 25 people in 11 attacks and is wanted on charges of terrorism. A court in Belfast

ordered the extradition of Michelena who was last seen in Spain in April.

Spaniards ignore crisis

MADRID. The Policía Nacional have issued detailed recommendations for people who want to go on holiday and not have to worry about having their home broken into. As well as the usual advice – lock up homes well, hide objects of value, etc – the police say “don't post holiday dates on Facebook or similar because thieves read them too”.

MADRID. Official figures show that despite the current economic crisis the number of Spanish emigrants returning home has remained stable. Last year, 31,689 came home, 300 more than the previous year. Half of them had been living in South and Central America which have been even harder hit than Spain. A third had been living in other EU countries.

Refuges are not included “for security reasons”, a ministry spokesperson said.

World News Police numbers not sustainable President of the Association of Chief Police OďŹƒcers Sir Hugh Orde told senior oďŹƒcers from England, Wales and Northern Ireland at ACPO's annual conference in Manchester on Tuesday that current police numbers are not "sustainable" in the face of budget cuts. He said it is "misleading in the extreme" to claim otherwise, and urged ministers to make structural reforms, rather than "salami slicing" the police to save money. Sir Hugh also said chief constables would face "hard choices" over where to make savings, and the government must take the lead. He said forces

may look at merging units and back-office functions, or at sharing expensive equipment, but warned that the idea of any police force mergers is always unpopular with voters who are afraid of losing their "local" police. Speaking after Sir Hugh, Home Secretary Theresa May announced plans to cut

police bureaucracy by scrapping Labour's 10point Policing Pledge. This includes commitments to respond quickly to calls and to keep victims informed about their case. Last week, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson said his force would "shrink" as a result of budget cuts.

Belgian abuse panel quits

Dr Death sentenced Jayant Patel, a US surgeon, dubbed "Doctor Death" by the Australian media, has been found guilty of the manslaughter of three of the patients in his care at a hospital in Queensland between 2003 and 2005. He was also convicted of grievous bodily harm against a fourth patient. Patel will be sentenced on Thursday. After 50 hours of deliberation, the 12-man jury at the Brisbane Supreme Court reached the guilty verdict after hearing evidence of botched and needless operations. Patel, 60, had pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of Gerry

Kemps, James Phillips, and Mervyn Morris, and causing grievous bodily harm to Ian Vowles during his time as director of surgery at Bundaberg Base Hospital. Prosecutors told the court that Patel had been criminally negligent when he had performed two oesophagectomies and two bowel operations on the four men. They argued that Patel's operations were well below the standard of a competent surgeon. Patel was detained by police in the US in 2008 after Australia launched extradition proceedings against him.

A Catholic Church-backed commission of inquiry into clerical sexual abuse in Belgium has announced it is shutting down in protest at police raids, which were carried out last Thursday at the request of the Brussels prosecutor's office. The commission's offices were searched and 475 case files removed, many of which contained confidential information from alleged abuse victims. Commission head Peter Adriaenssens, who only took over eight weeks ago, expressed concern at the motive for the raids. The Belgian Church was shaken in April when the Bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, resigned after admitting to having sexually abused a boy. Pope Benedict XVI denounced the raids as "deplorable".

Cabinet meets outside London

EWS IN BRIEF Got a story? Send your stories and pictures to The News

David Cameron took his coalition cabinet to Bradford in West Yorkshire on Tuesday for its first meeting outside London He was continuing the practice of away-day meetings revived by Gordon Brown in October 2008 when his cabinet met in Birmingham – the first cabinet meeting not to be held in London or at Chequers since 1921. The day included visits by ministers related to their areas of responsibility, and the main themes of the

visit were boosting regional economic activity and helping businesses grow. Speaking to a conference of chief executives on Monday, Mr Cameron warned that Britain had to learn to "earn its way in the world" again if it was to remain prosperous. He said: "I think too many people in this country are living under the delusion

that a prosperous past guarantees a prosperous future." Tory MPs attacked Gordon Brown over the bill for his regional cabinet meetings, estimated to cost up to £200,000 a time. Labour MPs are now expected to return the favour – but with an added edge. They will ask how, when claimants are facing cuts to their benefits,

departments are having to make savings of up to a third in their budgets and public sector workers are having their pay frozen, can the coalition justify spending so much on cabinet away days? No 10 insist the costs will be kept as low as possible and that the government is keen to listen to the views of the public.

US Supreme Court extends gun rights The US Supreme Court ruled by 5-4 on Monday that a ban on the ownership of handguns in the city of Chicago was unconstitutional. It also restricted the rights of state and city governments to enforce controls on gun ownership. Justices said the US Constitution protected the right to keep and bear arms for the purpose of self-defence. Two years ago,

the court ruled a ban on handguns in Washington DC was unconstitutional – declaring that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess guns, at least for purposes of self-defence in the home. But Washington is a federal city, with a unique legal standing. The latest ruling could potentially change laws on gun ownership in many of the

other US states. Debate over the exact meaning of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms has raged for years in the US. The amendment reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed." The Supreme Court's ruling is quite narrow – it upholds the

right of individuals to keep handguns at home for the purposes of self-protection but makes it clear that this does not mean that all laws governing gun ownership in America are now in doubt. However, for the first time, the US Supreme Court has offered a clear definition of national significance of these 27 much debated words written in 1789.

VAT upped to Landmark euthanasia ruling 24% GERMANY. The Federal Court of Justice has ruled that it is not a criminal offence to cut off the life support of a dying person if that person has given their consent, and acquitted a lawyer who had advised the daughter of a comatose woman to cut off her feeding tube.

ROMANIA. Prime Minister Emil Boc has said he plans to raise value-added tax (VAT) to 24% in an effort to curb the country's deficit and secure a $20bn International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan. The increase puts Romania just below those states with the highest VAT rate in the EU – The patient had expressed 25%. The average rate for her wish not to be kept alive European countries is now artificially. 20%.

Local News Councils must control noise CCTV not The Junta de Andalucia ruled last week that municipalities both large and small throughout the region must introduce an anti-noise ordinance if they have not already got one. The proposal about this new obligatory regulation on noise pollution will be approved at the Junta’s Cabinet meeting in October. For the period of one year following the meeting, the Junta’s environment department

will help the smallest municipalities to draw up the regulation and all municipalities will have another year in which draw up and approve their socalled “noise maps” marking out areas where higher decibels are allowed,

to meet an EU move to harmonise noise pollution regulations throughout the Union. The regulation will focus on “coches discoteca”, drivers who play music full blast, and will also regulate the use of emergency sirens in certain parts of towns.

effective A study on the effectiveness of the CCTV system installed in ten streets in Malaga’s historical centre has shown that the cameras have simply driven pickpockets and muggers to nearby streets without surveillance. It also showed that people in the area do not feel more secure nor have the number of fights and brawls been reduced. Local shopkeepers said more police patrols would be a more effective way to reduce robberies, although they would also like to see more streets included in the CCTV system.

Guardia Civil wants motto changed The Unified Association of the Guardia Civil (AUGC) in Malaga has requested that the motto “Todo por la Patria” (All for the Fatherland) be removed from the facades of their barracks because they consider it has unfortunate political connotations. The motto dates back to 13th October 1937 when General German Gil y Yuste had it emblazoned on all Guardia

Civil barracks in the areas of Spain dominated by the military rebels during the civil war. It was extended to all Guardia barracks after the war ended. The request comes as three barracks in Malaga are about to be refurbished. The AUGC has suggested that something along the lines of “Todo por la Constitucion” would be more in keeping with the times.

Orthodox Church East,West, home's best seeks plot BENALMADENA. A representative of the Russian Orthodox Church visited the town last week to look at a 300 m2 plot on which it would like to build a church. Mayor Enrique Moya said there were at least 5,000 people belonging to the Russian Orthodox Church living on the Costa del Sol, “enough to give them their own church”.

MALAGA. A spokesman for the Andalucian Travel Agents Association said the crisis is forcing “Malagueños” to forget the Caribbean and stay closer to home for their holidays this summer. While most of them have opted for the Costa del Sol or the country's eastern Mediterranean beaches, others were heading for less wellknown destinations inland.

Pedestrian bridge planned

Banderas to be town crier

MARBELLA. The Town Council plans to ask the Development Ministry to build a pedestrian bridge from the Benabolá roundabout to Puerto Banus because the underground tunnel cannot cope with the number of pedestrians needing to cross there and is frequently flooded during the rainy season. As a result too many people are endangering their lives by crossing the road.

MALAGA. The president of the Association of Religious Brotherhoods, Rafael Recio, has announced that Antonio Banderas will be the “pregonero” for Easter Week next year. The pregonero, or town crier, makes the official speech to open the Easter pageantry. Banderas belongs to the San Juan Brotherhoods Association and returns home every Easter to take part in the processions.

New Foundation of Friends calling success

The annual Peter Stock Memorial Week held at La Cala Resort, Mijas, recently was another outstanding success, once again being blessed with beautiful sunny, if breezy, weather and large entries. The fourball, played over two days on two courses, is one of the highlights of the competitive calendar and one of the most sought after titles. This year’s winners were the UK pairing of Danny Rees and Gordon Edwards. This was the last event in the week of competitions organised by Joan Stock in memory of her late husband Peter, who himself was a great fan of the fourball format. This was the 16th staging of the week and all funds raised go to the pallative care organisation, Cudeca.

Rev. Don Spence, the founder and pastor of the Calahonda Baptist Church resigned at the end of 2008 and now has a new call on his life. From Sunday July 4th , he will be taking an 11 a.m. service at the Faith Baptist Church in San Pedro. He is now looking forward to many years of service in the area.

Clarification from Midas Midas Telecom would like to point out that, further to their advertorial in The News last week, their services are achieved by using your existing Telefonica network but with all the advantages of Midas Telecom services in your own language.

n 10 - Political Update

The Local Voice

Muriel Pilkington

Memo from Madrid

Martin Delfín

Writes for the English language version of El Pais


Lofty dreams of independence



ollowing up the dire warning by European Commission president José Manuel Barroso that the economic crisis could mean the death of democracy in Spain, Portugal and Greece, it must be remembered that the death of democracy is never sudden. There is always a build-up with plenty of clues to warn people of its coming – if you are on the look-out for them. Today, many Spaniards are under the impression that the coup attempt on February 23, 1981, was nothing more than a flash in the pan but tensions within the military had been building for some months before the bunch of Guardia Civil stormed into Parliament. And the cause of their discontent was to be found in the Basque Country, where ETA had re-emerged with a vengeance in the second half of 1980, declaring it would unleash total war on Spain if the province of Navarra was not included in its dream of an independent Basque homeland. As usual, they blithely ignored the fact that most Navarrese wanted to stay as part of Spain. In an effort to browbeat them into submission, ETA started targeting tourist resorts and Guardia Civil barracks in the province.


he claim to Navarra infuriated senior Army officers because the region, apart from being an inalienable part of Spain, was a symbol of patriotic values for them. Navarra had provided Franco with the Requetes, the ferocious militia that had played a crucial role in his war effort. And the draft military amnesty law presented to Parliament in June 1980, which opened up the way for the reintegration into the ranks of the officers who had fought for the Republic during the Civil War, outraged the military even more than the legalisation of the Communist Party. To make matters worse, both ETA and GRAPO (The First of October Anti-fascist Resistance Group) had carried out a series of assassination attempts on senior generals during the spring and summer of 1980. So the military were not at all happy and conspiracy was rife.


he situation on the political front didn't help matters either. The first freely-elected post-Franco government was beginning to run out of steam. Between them, King Juan Carlos and the then Prime Minister Adolfo Suarez had steered the country through the most dangerous period – from November 1975 to June 1977. Suarez’ centre-right Union Centro Democratico won the general election in June 1977 and during the next three years, with the king keeping watch in the background, he brokered the 1978 Constitution and the autonomous statutes for the country’s 17 regions, working closely with the opposition parties, especially the Partido Socialista Obrero Español (Spanish Socialist Workers Party).


ut Suarez had become increasingly isolated from the cabinet, his party and the press. Socialist leader Felipe Gonzalez withdrew his support, claiming that Suarez no longer had a meaningful contribution to make. Unemployment had risen to one and a half million. And the

government was dragging its feet as regards the transfer of powers to the regional governments, especially those of the Basque Country and Catalonia.


nd the conspirators were quite open. By October 1980, the press was mentioning the so-called “Operación De Gaulle”, a reference to General Alfonso Armada, a great admirer of the French general, who was floating the idea of a coalition military-civilian government to solve the country’s problems.


eanwhile, several senior generals visited King Juan Carlos to complain bitterly about the situation. The King listened to them and tried to make them see reason, making it clear that “in no circumstances should they rely on me to cover the slightest act against a constitutional government like ours. Such actions, if they took place, I told them, would be considered by the King as a direct attack on the crown.”


earing that the military were finally running out of patience, Adolfo Suarez resigned on January 29th, 1981, because he believed his effective removal from power would placate them. But while Parliament was meeting to confirm the appointment of Leopoldo Calvo Sotelo as his successor on February 23rd, just after 6 pm groups of Guardia Civil stormed into the chamber through its several entrances, fired shots into the ceiling, where the bullet holes can still be seen, and declared the military had taken over. In fact, only Valencia had been taken by General Milans de Bosch, while the King was in the Zarzuela Palace ringing , all the military posts in the rest of the country to demand their allegiance to himself and Parliament.


he rebels imposed a news blackout – but overlooked one RTVE camera sent to record the acceptance of Calvo Sotelo as Prime Minister. Meanwhile, the news team at RTVE’s television studios had defied the military by 10 pm on the 23rd and gone on the air, knowing that another RTVE news team was on its way to the Zarzuela Palace to film the King’s condemnation of the coup, which effectively ended the uprising. Those film clips are shown frequently on TV today, a constant reminder of what might have been if the coup had succeeded.

he people of Catalonia remind me of a certain small sector in Puerto Rico who favour independence. The Caribbean island is a US territory and home to 3.8 million people who have the right to come and go to the United States as much as they please without a visa. In truth, they have been US citizens since 1917. This special relationship began in 1898 when Spain lost the island, along with Cuba and the Philippines to the United States in the brief but disastrous SpanishAmerican War declared by Queen-regent Maria Cristina of Hapsburg. Cuba and the Philippines were eventually granted independence but Washington decided to hold on to Puerto Rico because there had never really been any significant push for independence much less separation from Spain. As historian John Bergamini put it in his excellent 1974 book “The Spanish Bourbons: The History of a Tenacious Dynasty,” Puerto Rico “with more local selfgovernment than Cuba, had shown little inclination to be freed.”


n Catalonia, people are calling for mass demonstrations to protest the Constitutional Court’s decision Monday to scrap 14 amendments of the so-called Estatut – the region's governing body of bylaws approved by voters in a 2006 referendum. The bench majority considered them incompatible with Spain’s Constitution. Among those struck down are the preamble which describes Catalonia as “a nation” and a clause that gives the courts in the northeast territory judicial independence from the Spain’s legal watchdog, the CGPJ or the General Counsel of the Judiciary. There is also the statement in the autonomous statute that proclaims Catalan the “preferred language” to be used at all public institutions that was also declared unconstitutional. The Catalan nationalist party bloc (CiU) called the Constitutional Court’s decision a “serious one,” and said it would not have accepted anything more than a carte blanche approval of all of the more than 200 clauses that make up the statute which Catalans voted for during the referendum.


ince 1967, Puerto Ricans have been offered three plebiscites to chose their own political future – whether they want to be independent, become a US state or keep the status quo. The current relationship with the United States, adopted in 1952, is commonwealth status. Loosely based on the British system, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (or Estado Libre Asociado) affords islanders many US benefits. Besides travelling to and from the mainland, they can tap into many health and federal retirement benefits. They use the dollar, but don’t pay federal income taxes. They are disallowed to vote for president and cannot make their own bilateral treaties. The island has three major parties: Popular Democratic Party (PPD), New Progressive Party (PNP) and the Independence Party (PIP), whose respective pole positions should be centreleft, centre-right and far left but are actually defined by their status positions they support – commonwealth, statehood and

Puerto Rico

independence. In all three plebiscites held in 1967, 1993 and 1998, the current status quo has won hands down with independence getting less than 5% of the vote and statehood coming in second.


he majority of Catalans believe they are perhaps better off on their own rather than being attached to Spain. Jose Montilla, the Socialist regional premier, said Monday night he didn’t like the Constitutional Court’s ruling but “just because I am going to respect it, doesn’t mean I agree with it.” And if it were up to Josep Duran i Lleida and some of his CiU forces, a coup would be in the offing with a separatist militia operating from the Pyrenees.


rime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero gave Catalonia a chance to obtain broad autonomy in 2006 when the Socialists supported thenregional premier Pasqual Maragall’s bid to draft his own set of bylaws. But the term “nation” and the seemingly forced upon Catalan language has scared many, especially those in the main opposition Popular Party which took the challenge to the Constitutional Court. Catalonia, as opposed to other regions such as Galicia and Castilla-La Mancha, had been given a chance to become a Spanish commonwealth but it still wants more. The Catalans believe they can make it on their own if they declare their independence from Spain saying that they can survive on the region’s industrial power base. But do the most educated Catalan independence supporters really believe that those companies and firms which actually serve a large Spanish consumer market will remain inside a budding nation? Kosovo is Europe’s newest nation, recognised by some countries – Spain excluded – but it hasn’t made any headway in helping nurture a financially wracked continent back to health.


n Puerto Rico, supporters of independence are mostly romantic, with lofty dreams of a one-day Republic of Puerto Rico that hinges on a scary reality – cutting ties with the United States would mean a drastic plunge in living standards, the closing of almost all American companies, which employ hundreds of thousands of islanders, and the loss of federal benefits. I think perhaps the Catalan nationalists should have a heartto-heart with members of the Puerto Rico’s Independence Party.

Opinion & Comment - 11 n


The News wants to hear your views Send letters to the editor as part of an e-mail text to

Arthur Cliveden by email I don’t know if you think this is worth inclusion in The News but I have been seeing on the Internet what appears to be another injustice about to occur in the London area. Your research will obviously be able to connect Clr. Robert Bailey of the BNP with an event during the recent election canvassing where he was confronted with some Asians, one of whom spat in his face. Now I don’t know if you are into the art of dirty fighting, but if you are then you will know that once someone is spat in the face the automatic reaction is to push one’s hands directly to wipe the spit off, at which stage the assailant then kicks out as hard as he can between your legs. Unfortunately for this poor Asian he was obviously unaware that Clr Bailey was an ex-marine and well aware of this trick. Clr Bailey retaliated and downed the Asian but will now appear in court in July charged with GBH (we should also now introduce a new charge SWITCA Spitting With Intent To Cause Aids - but of course to what ethnic race only would that law apply?

I sincerely hope the judge’s summing up will not be something like “It was fortuitous for the members of the jury that a person with a camera just happened to be on the scene when the incident occurred and was able to record it all”. Pity the spitting couldn’t have been edited out because then Clr Bailey could have been sent to the gallows without the need for Shi-ite law to come to the fore in the UK. Editor says: This incident is on Youtube for all to see and it appears there was a slanging match between the parties beforehand. Obviously in an ideal world this kind of behaviour on both sides would not happen and people of authority should endeavour not to get involved in such incidents be they MP’s of any party, football managers etc. However, once things get as low as physical abuse in all its forms - whether it being spitting, throwing an egg à la Preston, or actual punching or kicking, a person should have the right to reasonably defend themselves without fear of prosecution.

Per R Dewar

Sabinillas Edition 78 has the inimitable Muriel Pilkington stating, in as many words, that young people are more interested in cell phones, Ipods and computers than in revolutions. She omits one other factor: today’s ‘opium of the people’, football. Editor replies: I doubt many of the English football youngsters will be that interested in the game at the moment after the English side's pitiful performance in the World Cup! Personally I think sports managers have a very poor “pool” to pick new up-and-coming players from right now and that the playing of competitive sports in schools should be brought back without delay. People have to learn that in life, sometimes you lose and the sooner kids get used to that basic fact, the better. Young people need guidelines not namby-pamby pussyfooting around and adults need to be taught how to communicate with children again, a skill sadly missing in a lot of them. Parenting is not about sticking your kid in front of a computer or telly telling it to get on with it. And it should bother all of us how few parents “know” their children.

Stargazing By Ken Campbell If you would like to be kept up to date or take part in any of the events then go to

The Summer Nights As we move into the beginning of July you will get a chance to witness the motion of the planets as they move in our Solar System.

If you look to the west just after sunset you will be able to spot the planets Venus, Mars and Saturn all forming a perfectly straight line with one another and all very close together. Venus is the very bright ‘star’ closest to the horizon. Iit is now so bright it looks like an airplane’s landing lights. Mars, which is very red in colour, is above and to the left of Venus and yellow coloured Saturn is about the same distance again up and to the left of Mars. But if you watch them throughout the rest of July you will see a noticeable difference in their positions each night until the last few days of July, when all three planets will have moved extremely close together in a very nice conjunction. Of course the planets are not really close together, they are in fact millions of miles apart, and it is simply a line of sight effect

that will make them look this close. It was this movement of the planets through the background stars that puzzled ancient astronomers and so the name planet comes from the Greek word Planetès meaning wanderer. The Sun, Moon and the planets all move across the sky in a very narrow band called the ecliptic and it’s because they all stay within the ecliptic that we sometimes have this close grouping of planets. The ecliptic is so called because it is here that eclipses occur. There will be a total eclipse of the Sun on July 11th when the Moon will pass in front of the Sun but unfortunately it will occur on the opposite side of the Earth from us so we won’t get to see it. Early risers will also get a very rare opportunity to see the Planet Uranus during July as it too will be so close to another bright planet, this time Jupiter,

that you should be able to see them both together in the field of view using a pair of binoculars. Uranus is so far away that it is only just within the range of being seen with the naked eye under perfect conditions so it is usually very hard to find. But because throughout July it will be within a degree or two to the right of Jupiter it will be easy to find. Jupiter will be the bright ‘star’ that you can see in the south east in the early hours of the morning. Through binoculars or a small telescope you should be able to make out the blue/green disc of Uranus as well as the four brightest Moons of Jupiter. So all in all a very busy month ahead!

Iznajar – the largest lake in Andalucia WRITTEN BY Jean Joss

In the valley of the river Genil, hidden among seemingly endless rolling hills covered in olive trees, lies Lake Iznajar, an inland “sea” about thirty kilometres long. he small hill town of Iznajar, was originally a prehistoric settlement, flourishing in the eight century after the invasion of the Moors in 711AD when a castle called “Hins Ashar” was built on the highest point. Today it has been transformed by the creation of the lake. Driving from the south, the approach roads swoop down into the valley and across the bridge underneath the town itself which perches high above on its rocky promontory, earning itself the title Mirador del Genil.


turning on the right after the bridge, park at the bottom and walk up to the top. Parts of the fortified town walls can be seen in the old streets below the ruins of the Moorish castle. The Iglesia de Santiago is worth a visit, as are the labyrinthine lanes of the Barrio del Coso in the older part of the town. Particularly attractive (and a complete surprise) is the tiny Patio de las Comedias adorned in true Andalusian fashion with masses of blue plant pots lovingly watered each day by the ladies living there.



ross over the bridge and turn right climbing up the hill into the village itself. At the top there is limited parking at the Mirador across the lake, a “must” for photographers. If (like me) you prefer not to drive through the narrow pueblo streets, take the second

urn left over the bridge and you may find Valdearenas Beach. In earlier years this was a long stretch of sand but this year, after the torrential rains of the winter, the water level has risen so high that in early June the beach had disappeared completely. And tracks

used by the fishermen had vanished.But if you can't walk or swim on the beach then you can at least visit the newly opened Hotel Rural Caserio de Iznajar which has a swimming pool, relax on its terrraces – and take photographs from this side of the lake too!

Have you seen TAPAS’ Dr Branovic? Emma Tyler mourns the sudden and unexpected death of her husband, Joe. But all is not as it seems and, deep in the bowels of a nearby hospital, something stirs. Enter Detective Inspector Monroe - a man who knows a thing or two about the unexpected. Last memorably seen in "Forget-me-Knot", the grumpy, beleaguered detective soon finds himself right in the middle of another mystery which threatens to unhinge his sanity.

Brooklyn's Finest BY ANTOINE FUQUA Starring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke Three cops at the end of their tether are trying to do the right thing over the course of one explosive weekend - the movie cuts between the three without them ever meeting as it reveals what happens to the boozy burnt-out veteran (Gere) who is on

the point of retirement after 22 years of keeping his nose clean, the Catholic cop (Hawke) tempted to steal money from the crooks he is chasing so he can help his sick wife and five children and the ambitious cop (Cheadle) who is working undercover

so he can show his bosses he is worthy of promotion but finds himself under pressure from his superiors and a ruthless FBI agent - a good turn from Ellen Barkin. Expect a huge body count and a lot of action as the three find their way to redemption.


The Princess and The Frog BY RON CLEMENTS, JOHN MUSKER Voices by Anika Noni Rose, Oprah Winfrey Disney returns to traditional handpainted values in this toe tapping fable set in Jazz-age New Orleans, in which young Tiana

fatefully kisses the frog prince, who yearns to be human again. A beautifully crafted tale that fits the family entertainment bill.


Avatar triumphs Blockbusting Avatar last week made up for its poor showing at the Oscars by dominating the 36th Saturn Awards. It scooped ten trophies at the annual science fiction and fantasy ceremony. It picked up the Best Science Fiction Film award as well as trophies for director James Cameron

and the leading actors. In the meantime Hollywood studios are searching for the new Avatar - the movie they can produce in 3D, that will draw in huge audiences and earn an absolute fortune. It was reported last week Fox have optioned Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles.


enerally sequels are often regarded as a sly way of Hollywood capitalizing on the success of a film and simply pumping out 90 minutes of follow-up that can keep the box office tills ringing with faithful viewers. Occasionally however films that do well can spawn sequels that are even better than the originals.

Meet the Fockers’ is a funny, stylish comedy that builds on the story of ‘Meet the Parents’, a film that itself was heralded as the best comedy of 2002. Following the story of a clash of cultures as Jewish male nurse Gaylord Focker (Ben Stiller) and his fiancée Pam Byrne (Teri Polo) visit her ultraconservative, Protestant parents, Meet the Parents drags out all the usual comedy clichés but it does it well. Robert De Niro plays Pam’s father Jack, who is really a CIA agent but has been posing as a retired florist. He takes an instant dislike to his future son-in-law and sets about finding out as much as he can as his distrust of the daughter’s suitor grows and grows.


n Meet the Fockers, the tables are turned and the Byrne’s family find themselves in unfamiliar waters as they meet the cosmopolitan Jewish in-laws and Jack Byrnes finds himself floundering in the sexually open and liberal minded home of Gaylord’s parents, played by Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand. Once again the comedy touches on cultural differences but largely the laughs come from the exceptionally talented cast and the very physical gags you see when respected actors play unrespectable characters. Hip, sexy and very believable together, Streisand and Hoffman are the perfect foils for the repressed and uptight De Niro. In the end he has to admit defeat, accept Gaylord as the father of Pam’s unborn child and finally takes intimacy lessons from Miss Streisand, mainly for the benefit of his long

suffering wife. I like Meet the Fockers because it showcases the talents of mature actors and the humour doesn’t rely on dense youths calling each other ‘Dude’.


f course the ultimate sequel to beat all of sequels has to be Aliens. Although the manic shape-changing bitch monster from outer space became the storyline that kept on giving (where are we now? Aliens Six or something?), the best of the run so far has to be number two.


et fifty-seven years into the future from her last brush with the crazy bugs, Sigourney Weaver again plays space veteran Ripley, not looking a day older of course as she has been in hyper sleep, which must be a bit like having your own Hollywood make-up artist gently moisturizing your mug on a daily basis while you concentrate on never getting bed sores or succumbing to musclewastage.


nyway, Ripley pops out of hypersleep and is promptly asked to go back to planet Alien on the grounds that she is the sole survivor of round one. After three or four whole seconds of deliberation she takes on the task and heads up a team of expendable bug-fodder grunts to go and hunt down the aliens. The genius of the film was in the pitching of evil queen bitch alien against hard as acrylic nails Ripley, in an oestrogen fueled female mud wrestling match that eventually sees the alien pushed into an airlock and blasted out into space, never to been again, until Alien 3 was required. The image of Miss Weaver shifting 15 tons of wriggling alien with a strap-on cargo loading suit/machine has become sci-ficonic and as yet unmatched in the Alien franchise. But then we are only at number six or whatever, so the 7th could be the best one once that hits the silver screen.

You are busting to break out of yourself, there is a well of pressure and energy that is building within, it is like you have grown too big for your own body. There is emotional pain behind all of this, urging you not to remain in the same place any longer. All that is coming up will be showing you where you need to focus your energy and put changes in place. If you put a little effort in now you can move mountains, go beyond the apparent obstacles and the bigger picture will become clear. A small change to your circumstances or outlook can make all the difference to a plan. Lately you have been brought to the edge of your emotions and are willing to succumb, it seems, to what your heart is telling you. It is time to make a move. Some aspects of a situation have changed and an open door that was once closed stands before you. This is a whole new ball game with a choice to be made, trust your instincts, listen to your heart and say goodbye to the restrictions of the past. Let the wind blow those cobwebs away as resentments that you didn’t even know you were harboring are welling up from the depths. Acknowledge their existence, don’t deny they are there and take your learning from a past situation. Tie up loose ends, even though you feel stuck in a situation A great expansion is due to take place soon; your whole horizon is due for an enthusiastic boost. Very different experiences from those which you are used to are just around the corner. This is prime time for you to make significant rapid changes in your life, even with so much uncertainty in the air, you have had enough. It is your time to step in and direct a situation that is suffering from stagnancy. You will be propelling yourself out of any relationship issues that have held you back in the past, determined to re-balance the scales of injustice so that you can move on. Seeking advice from those that have your best interests at heart can help spur you on. Opportunities are only there if we recognise them, perhaps you have been looking to the left when the answer and movement was occurring to the right. Optimism will help you unlock your luck; it will draw these opportunities to you and allow you to ‘look’ further and more deeply into things that you would normally dismiss. You have been emotionally anchored to one place for too long and now you are just about prepared to do what is necessary to get you out of a sticky position. You are a sign full of courage and vitality this week, feeling in a strong position to take charge of the direction of your life, it is your turn to take centre stage – about time too. Be the leader, the inspirer, the motivator. What you thought you wanted you may now realize was more an ‘ought’ than reality. With renewed clarity and insight you now feel happy with the conclusions that you are now forming. Be bold, be brave and muster onwards and upwards.


You care a lot what others think of you and it is hard trying to stay out of a certain drama that is knocking on your door. Some acquaintances are pushing your buttons and you may feel out of control when it comes to this situation. Make sure you look after you and keep yourself as relaxed as possible and don’t allow anyone to make you feel uncomfortable. Stay relatively cool and rd September 23 - detached, take a step back and respond instead of reacting to this person. A nd October 22 cautious approach will make all the difference.


October 23rd November 21st

The person on the end of your message will be left in no doubt as to how you really feel. It is going to be loaded with everything you now seek to change or feel is not working within this interaction. This is an intense time for you and you could be wrestling with awkward decisions. The longer you leave things the more uptight you will become. Words need to be said, your voice needs to be heard. Don’t waste time worrying over what might be, speak up and go for what you know you need.

SAGITTARIUS You are willing to fight for what you believe in and this is one of those moments when you are compelled to go for it. There is a reason for you to be confident in your understanding of the ‘truth’ of this matter but many changes are going to occur in rapid succession that could alter the approach you eventually take. All that you value most including the things that mean the nd November 22 - most to you will become more and more obvious. There will be no hidden st December 21 surprises, all is out in the open.

CAPRICORN The more you think about something in your life the less sense it seems to make to you. There just seems no logical explanation, so stop thinking about it, let it go on the back-burner, as someone else could do with your attention and assistance right now. You will be able to find common ground with another person whom you have been at odds with and will re-find some of December 22nd that trust in human kind that you thought you had lost.

You would rather ignore an issue instead of tackling it head on. Perhaps you are hoping it will go away or things will just right themselves but in your heart you know you have to make a stand. A situation is draining you of energy. Fears are heightened and you may be worried about your health or that of someone close to you. Imagine how light you will feel once the heavy burden of your past has been lifted and then you will be able to energise the outcome that you want. This is a ‘think on your feet’ week and if you can keep up with the turbulent and crazy things that are happening, you will benefit. You could be having an influence on someone’s life, there is a powerful connection with this person and a story is in the process of unfolding. Try not to question this involvement or wonder too much if you would be better apart, your eyes are about to be opened. Emotional barricades are tumbling down that have been getting in the way of progress.

Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Serrano Ham Ingredients:

(serves 6)

● 750gr medium-thick asparagus ● 400gr Serrano ham, medium to thinly sliced – enough for an equal number of asparagus spears and slices of ham. ● Parmesan cheese, optional. ● Warmed butter to drizzle over the top.

Method ● Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Cut the bottom 1 to 1½ inches off the asparagus spears. If the spears are thick, peel them. Wrap a slice of Serrano around each spear spiraling upward, with the fatty stripe of the ham at the bottom creating a barber’s pole effect up the spear. Line an oven tin with a 1½ cm lip with aluminum foil, covering it lightly with olive or sunflower oil.

● Put the prepared asparagus on the tray and put the tray in the oven. Leave for 5 minutes, then shake the pan vigorously to turn the spears. Roast for another 5 minutes and shake again. At this stage you can sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese over the top, but be careful not to overcook the cheese or it will taste a bit bitter. Continue roasting for about 15 minutes until the

asparagus becomes tender. You can drizzle a little melted butter over the top just before serving if you wish. ● Serve as a starter, double the quantities for a main dish, or serve as a vegetable side dish to other meals. Goes great with grilled chicken!

Gardening (Part 2) I suppose that when one wants plants one can simply go to the garden centre (vivero) and point or fill up a trolley but you will need to be able to ask a few basic questions. Most of these will revolve around sun - sol, shade - sombra and water - agua. ¿A esta planta le gusta el sol? - Does this plant like the sun? ¿A esta planta le gusta la sombra? - Does this plant like the shade? ¿A esta planta le hace falta mucha agua? - Does this plant need a lot of water? ¿Necesita mucho abono? - Does it need a lot of fertiliser? If you need to be more specific, saying what you need, you can use the expression Me hace falta - I need. Me hace falta un árbol para un sitio con mucho sol I need a tree for a place with full sun. Me hace falta un arbusto para una maceta grande I need a bush for a big flower pot. So we see that macetas are flower pots. Necesito macetas para el patio - I need flower pots for the patio. Necesito macetas para el balcón - I need flower pots for the balcony. Quiero cultivar tomates en macetas - I want to grow tomatoes in flower pots. Quiero cultivar hierbas en macetas - I want to grow herbs in flower pots. Perejil - parsley, albahaca - basil, romero - rosemary, tomillo - thyme. Ya está - That's it Hasta la próxima - Until next time Valerie Valerie runs the Centro Idiomas Language School in Coin.

Beauty Tip

Watch those weights

Age-proof your body (part 2)

Weightlifting is an increasingly popular form of exercise – but some weights land up where they shouldn’t.

Obscure unsightly veins with spray-on leg makeup or a body-bronzing mist. Stand in the tub or shower, as the spray will travel. After the first coat, pat legs lightly with a paper towel to take off any excess, then let the spray dry for a few minutes and apply a second coat if you need more coverage. To avoid clothing stains, make sure your legs are completely dry before you get dressed. Bulging varicose veins should be evaluated by a vascular surgeon, but spider veins - which are small, dilated blood vessels - can easily be treated by a trained physician. A technique called sclerotherapy dissolves veins with a quick injection of saline or glycerine but it is not cheap. Support hose will help keep veins from expanding, but don't look good with shorts. One alternative is to elevate your feet whenever you can. And exercises, such as rolling up onto your toes to work your calf muscles and keep blood flowing (repeated throughout the day), will also help. Avoid sitting with your legs crossed because the pressure makes the body try to correct the cut-off circulation by creating new blood vessels, and those can become spider veins.

An American study has found that between 1990 and 2007, 970,000 people ended up in emergency rooms with weight-training injuries. About 82% were men, but the study found the number of injuries in women has risen dramatically as more and more take up weight training. Women were more likely to injure their feet and legs, while men’s injuries were more common in the trunk and hands; men had more sprains and strains,

and women had more fractures. The most common injuries were caused by weights being dropped, crushing a body part between weights or hitting themselves with the equipment. Overexertion, muscle pulls and loss of balance accounted for about 14% of emergency room visits. More than 90% of the injuries occurred while using free weights rather than weight machines. Less than 2% of the injured needed

hospitalization, but a few were fatal: the researchers estimate that 114 deaths were related to weight training over the 18-year period. The researchers said before taking up weight training people should receive proper instruction and use proper techniques for their lifts.



When tanning becomes an addiction Despite decades of campaigns warning people that too much sun can lead to skin cancer, millions continue to abuse the ultraviolet rays that in small doses help maintain health but in larger doses can destroy it. Dermatologists are frustrated by their seeming inability to deter tanning behaviour, particularly among adolescents and young adults. There are many explanations for this failure, including the widespread belief that people look better with a tan. But in recent years another explanation has emerged for which there is now considerable scientific support: some people are addicted. As with alcohol, not everyone who is exposed

becomes dependent on the sun. But various studies have shown there are enough UV abusers to warrant a new medical diagnostic category: tanning addiction. Many people think a tan protects them by helping block the damaging effects of UV radiation but in fact it damages the skin. Even brief exposure to ultraviolet light can cause mutations in the DNA of skin cells, including the melanocytes, the host cells for melanoma. Accumulate enough of those mutations and a cancer can result. Even those who escape cancer will eventually experience the ageing effects of repeated tanning: loose, wrinkled, leathery skin that can make people look decades older than they are. In a recent study a team of US researchers administered two tests of

substance abuse to 145 people sunbathing on a Texas beach. One was a modified version of the socalled CAGE test for alcohol addiction, consisting of four questions: Have you ever felt you needed to cut down on your tanning? Have people annoyed you by criticizing your tanning? Have you ever felt guilty about tanning? Have you ever felt you needed to tan first thing in the morning. They found that 26% of the beachgoers met the CAGE criteria for addiction. And in a second test, a modified version of the psychiatric profession’s official diagnostic criteria for a substance abuse disorder, 53% of the respondents scored positively.

Ice craving linked to anaemia Fatigue and weakness are the familiar symptoms of the blood disorder anaemia, but in recent years cravings for ice have emerged in the medical literature as a puzzling and increasingly documented sign of the condition, especially its most common form, iron deficiency anaemia. Some scientists suspect that the compulsive consumption of ice — called pagophagia — relieves inflammation in the mouth brought on by iron deficiencies. In extreme cases, people with undiagnosed anaemia and pagophagia have been known to go through several bags or trays of ice in a single day. The problem usually clears up after treatment with iron supplements, unlike sickle cell anaemia, which cannot be treated with these supplements.

= SANDAL-READY FEET Painting toes with an iridescent neutral varnish is a great way to make feet look more attractive immediately. Golds and other shimmery nudes work with any skin tone or shoe colour. If you have calluses which are uncomfortable and tough to file down, see a podiatrist to have the skin build-up safely removed. Once they're under control, use a pumice or foot file regularly to prevent another callus from forming. Remember that foot files work better on dry skin. Podiatrists also recommend rubbing olive or coconut oil on to rough spots, then donning socks and leaving the treatment on for at least an hour a day. To control the build-up of skin, regularly massage your feet in an alpha hydroxy acid that contains cream. = DAILY SUN DEFENCE Protecting your face with SPF may be a daily ritual, but you probably don't slather sunscreen on your body every morning. Enter SPF body lotions. They claim to provide both hydration and UV protection in one bottle, without sacrificing skin comfort, though they aren't meant to replace your sunblock during prolonged exposure.

Posing pouch set for revival

Mick not impressed either!

Practically the whole of the population of England can be described Fashion experts reckon that skimpy is in this summer - and as “Gutted” after the disastrous efforts made by their football team. that means a resurgence of interest in one of fashion's most unforgiving items... itsy bitsy Speedos.

According to price comparison website Ciao, there has been a 400 per cent increase in the number of internet searches for the tiny trunks in the first six months of this year compared to the same time last year - which means that the scene is set for a revival. Now it may be all actor Daniel Craig's fault as he looked pretty cool as James Bond stepping out of the sea clad in a pair of budgie smugglers - or banana hammocks - take your pick. And David Beckham appeared to perfection in a

pair of white trunks, although they did look worryingly like a nappy. Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has been seen sprawled across magazine covers in his pair of trunks flexing his well oiled muscles. And there's the rub. For a lot of British men a six pack is the thing you find on the bottom shelf of the fridge. And post World Cup there may be a few beer bellies that will need toning to avoid an overhang. Even the model names sound intimidating - Pellet (hmm), the Herculean

Placement - crikey. Speedos were invented by Australian Peter Travis in 1961 and the first time a man wore them on Bondi beach he was arrested - but sadly the magistrate threw out the case. So, for all the guys who plan on spending their time in the sun sporting the skimpies and who are not professional athletes or Olympic swimmers, don't forget the essential lessons - and try not to use Rod Stewart as a role model because you will have to invest in a gold medallion as well.!

But apart from blubbering fans, Mick Jagger also looked none too pleased by the pathetic performance, seemingly having to take a photo as he couldn’t believe what he was seeing with his eyes. During the match against

Germany fans makeup was streaming down their faces along with their tears. The WAGS that did turn up were seen either throwing their hands in the air in utter despair or covering their faces, determined not to watch as yet another goal went into their net.

Coleen Rooney had more sense than to travel all the way to South Africa and was spotted at Chester Races looking after fivemonth-old son Kai, who at least should put a smile on the face of his father when he gets home.

Hermione Grainger is a dog Potter witch Hermione Grainger, AKA Emma Watson, will be seen in a new music video for her boyfriend George Craig’s band, One Night Only, which was formed in North Yorkshire seven years ago

but only secured a recording contract, with Vertigo, in 2007. The video to go with their new single, Say You Don't Want It, sees 20-year-old Emma as a pedigree dog running with George

through New York. Problem is, until they see their reflexions in a window, they don't know they're dogs. Watson's owner turns up and takes her home just as they are about to kiss. Aaaaah.............

The Red Bull driver somersaulted and landed upside down after running into the back of Heikki Kovalainen's Lotus. “The car did a great job” said Webber after the race.

I was coming round turn one and literally as I got to the safety car line I saw that the safety car was pretty much alongside me. I thought I had passed it, so I continued and that was it.”

Some sections of the international press are unimpressed with Ferrari’s attitude; Daily Mail writer Jonathan McEvoy said it “smacks of arrogance and desperation”. “They are the grandest team in the sport, but they are just one of the players. Nor the referee. Perhaps if the season

Ducati's Casey Stoner arrived on Pedrosa's rear wheel just a few laps later.

Ricky Ponting accused his batsmen of wilting under pressure after England wrapped up their one-day series at Old Trafford in Manchester. Inspired spells from fast bowlers Shaun Tait (3-29 off 10 overs) and Doug Bollinger (3-20 off 10) almost pulled off a dramatic victory as England lost 6-18 from 39 balls late in its run chase. In pursuit of 213 for victory, all-rounder Tim Bresnan (14 not out off 15 balls) lifted his side over the line with five deliveries to spare by edging James Hopes for four to hand England an unbeatable 30 series lead. But Australia's bowling performance and

Australia’s fielders trudge off after their loss

England's late wobble shouldn't be allowed to mask the shortcomings of the touring side's highly regarded middle order. Australia's batsmen have been providing declining returns in the series, setting England respective targets of 268, 240 and 213 on good batting decks. "That sort performance was

of a

reasonable bowling performance, a poor batting performance again, and at the end of the day you look back and it's happened in three games, so it's a series gone," Ponting said. "What we have to do now is show a bit of pride in our performances in the last two games and try and salvage whatever we can out of the series."

Welshman Geraint Thomas will help Team Sky take on the Tour de France in July after winning the men's British Road Race Championships in Pendle on Sunday. But fellow Welsh Olympic gold medallist Nicole Cooke relinquished her nine-year hold on the women's crown as she was beaten by Emma Pooley. Thomas held off the challenge of team-mate Peter Kennaugh in the final sprint and Ian Stannard completed a one-twothree on the podium for the British team.

Pironkova beats Venus Williams Tsvetana Pironkova produced a brilliant display to shock second seed Venus Williams in the quarter-finals. The unseeded Bulgarian continually returned almost everything Williams threw at her and won 6-2 6-3. Williams had seemed out of sorts during the match several times throwing the ball up and then delaying before starting her service action again.

Murray getting closer

DAVE’S DRIVES Hello again The fantastic run of British success on the U.S. P.G.A. tour over the last few weeks has certainly grabbed the attention with firstly Justin Rose winning, then Lee Westwood and finally Graeme McDowell’s amazing capture of the U.S. Open last week. This week Rose again led the way with two fantastic rounds of 64 and 62 to be the halfway leader of the Travelers Championship held in Connecticut. Rose’s third round effort however was rather tentative, but a two-under score of 68 still left him with a three shot lead going into the final round. Sadly his form deserted him in the last few holes of the final day and he dropped vital shots to lose his way, but the encouraging thing is that European professionals are more than holding their own in the States in this Ryder Cup year. I played a friendly game this week at Calanova Golf Club and as usual found the staff to be very helpful and the course much improved. The greens were really exceptional and the course as a whole was in fine condition (you can tell I had a good round) and hopefully this very friendly course will soon be back up in the top echelon of our local venues. After the bitter pill of England’s elimination from the World Cup perhaps we will have some good news on the golfing front at the Ryder Cup this coming October and restore some much needed pride. Until next time. Keep your head down Dave.

For the third summer in succession, Murray is into the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, but he has never played so well in making the last eight. Of the men's quarterfinalists, Murray is alone in being the only one who is yet to concede a set at these Championships, the only one to have won 12 from 12, after he dealt with the power of Sam Querrey, at 6ft 6in a dangerous American who was trying so hard to cuff the ball through the Centre Court grass. Whilst the other seeded players are having to endure the chaos and fivesetters this summer, Murray just keeps on winning his matches in straight sets, and if Murray can continue to strike the ball with power and poise when he plays France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, there is every chance that he could make the semi-finals on an unbroken run of 15 sets. It has taken Murray only seven and a half hours to make the last eight, and John Isner and Nicolas Mahut

match with far greater experience at the back end of Grand Slams. The Scot was looking to reach the quarter-finals of a major for the sixth time, while Querrey was playing in the last 16 at the highest level for only the second time. Someone once said that tennis in Britain is not a sport, it is a fortnight, and all those who only dip into Murray's world for two weeks every summer will probably not know, or even

No one was about to fling programmes and Pimm's cups on to the grass, not with Murray playing so well, including hitting one extraordinary forehand volley that had so much sidespin on it that it bounced, curled around the net post and came back on to his side. It was a pity that a replay was not shown on the video screens as everyone inside Centre Court, probably even Querrey, would have liked to have seen that one again.
