No election announcement - National news

State-of-the-nation speech let-down The economic crisis which has dogged the last years of his administration inevitably dominated Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's last stateof-the-nation speech to Parliament on Tuesday. Sr Zapatero announced only two new measures – greater protection for people who cannot keep up their mortgage payments and a ceiling on regional government spending. He spent the rest of his one hour 15 minute speech defending his economic reforms and called on all parties to support them “whoever may govern”.

stressing that despite some violent incidents the protests of the “indignados” (indignant ones) had been democratic, responding to “the concern and general malaise generated by the economic crisis”. He said that while “we might not agree with some of the indignados' demands, they deserved a hearing and should be respected”.

He gave the Real Democracy Now movement a nod,

WORLD Bruises & planes

By Kym Wickham k.wickham@thenewsonline.es

On Saturday I went to see our Sue who is at home recovering from her recent hospital forays. She is, of course, exhausted by it all and the bruising she has been enduring is a phenomenal array of colours. From dark purple, through apple green to banana yellow, she has them all! We sat and gossipped for a few hours about what has been happening in the outside world and, at least she hasn’t lost her sense of humour. We are hoping to see her gradually coming back to work in the near future, depending on what the doctor says on Thursday, of course. She says she’s bored sick but her husband, Mick, has been an absolute star throughout it all so, well done Michael, you’ve done her proud! On Monday night we had to do the airport run to pick up some friends that were coming in quite late so we were trying to think of something to do to use up the time between leaving work and picking them up. We had a look at what was on at the cinemas in its original version. Quite fancied Pirates of the Carribean but that started in Fuengirola at four o’clock in the afternoon. Kung Fu Panda 2 might have been amusing - yep, big kid at heart - but as we hadn’t seen the original version there would have been “in” jokes that we just wouldn’t have got. Then there was something that I couldn’t even understand the title of so that was hopeless. In the end we went to dinner at Las Islas on Torreblanca - great - and I’ll tell you all about it next week.

Prince presides at soldiers' funeral

Continued from FRONT PAGE

State-ofthe-nation speech letdown

Crown Prince Felipe presided over the official funeral ceremony on Tuesday of the two soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan last week when a bomb exploded under their armoured car 20 kilometres north of Qala-i-Naw near the border with Turkmenistan. The bodies of Sgt Manuel Argudin Perrino and Pte Niyireth Pineda Marín were flown to the General Aleman Ramirez army base in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, on Monday, where the funeral ceremony took place. At the end of the ceremony, Prince Felipe pinned the Cross of Military Merit to the flags

covering their coffins. Among those present were minister Chacoin, Canary Island regional premier Paulino Rivero and members of his government, military top brass and local officials. The remains of Sgt Perrino will be taken to Valencia for burial, while Pte Pineda will be buried in her native Colombia.

the two Spanish soldiers and wounded another three. The government announced last week that it would be scaling back its 1,500-strong presence in Afghanistan from the beginning of next year and that all troops would be home by 2014. In the past ten years, 15 Spanish soldiers have died in attacks in Afghanistan, while another 81 have died in accidents there.

Defence ministry sources have said Spanish troops stationed in Afghanistan have limited their movements to only those most essential to their mission. This order came after the death of Osama bin Laden in May, but has been reinforced after a Taliban attack last week which killed

When the PM sat down, opposition leader Mariano said there had been nothing surprising in the PM's speech. Later that afternoon, Sr Rajoy criticised Sr Zapatero on all fronts, and asked why he insisted on prolonging “this calamity”. He said the PM was hiding behind “excuses, frills, promises and false hopes” in order to avoid facing up to the crisis. He said the state-of-thenation debate was not about whether Spain was well or ill “because it is so evidently ill”. The majority of the parties represented in Parliament agreed on one thing – the PM's speech had been disappointing. Convergencia y Union leader Josep Antoni Duran said the PM's speech sounded “like the parting of a person who feels remorse about the situation”. Basque Nationalist Party spokesman Josu Erkoreka said the PM was right to concentrate on the economic crisis, “which is what everyone is worried about”, but found him too optimistic, grasping at the slightest sign of economic recovery. Catalan Republican Left spokesman Joan Ridao commented: “Zapatero came to power with the votes of the workers and is leaving to the applause of the bankers”.

the Seychelles gained independence from the UK

Turbulent first week of Basque coalition By the end of its first week in power, the Basque left-wing coalition, Bildu, which swept the board in several parts of the Basque Country and Navarre in the May 22nd municipal elections, had removed the King's official portrait from the council meeting room in San Sebastian and proposed a reduction of the police and military presence throughout the Basque Country to reduce spending and because “the majority of Basques do not identify with them”. By law, the King's portrait must be hung in all government buildings and

only the Basque regional government in Madrid can order a reduction of the forces of law and order. The mayor of Andoain had already refused to allow councillors' bodyguards to enter the town hall. Many councillors belonging to the Socialist Party and the Partido Popular have been assigned bodyguards for years now as they are considered prime targets for the Basque terrorist group ETA. Last Friday, the mayor of Zarautz, Guipuzcoa province, confronted members of the Ertzaintza (Basque police force) when

they entered the town hall's reception hall to remove a poster featuring ETA prisoners and photos of known members of ETA. The mayor demanded to know why they were doing so – it is in fact against the law – then tried to stop the

Ertzaintza from entering the room. As they forced their way in, they were insulted and jostled but no arrests were made. By the end of last week, Deputy PM and Interior minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba had warned several times that

the government would not hesitate to enforce the laws in the Basque Country. He also said that Bildu was losing credibility with every passing day that it did not condemn ETA’s violence and call on the group to disband.

Check out girls to smarten up

Protesters start marches on Madrid Hundreds of activists from cities across Spain began to march towards Madrid on Monday as part of a demonstration against the state of the economy. The protest marchers started off in Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia and Cadiz and will converge in the capital next month. Similar marches are due to start from other cities in coming days. Two years of recession have left the country with an unemployment rate of 21 per cent, rising to 35 per cent among those under the age of 30, and protests against the government's austerity measures and a lack of jobs have been increasing in recent weeks.

Pope's programme announced The Vatican has released the programme of Pope Benedict XVI's visit to Madrid, from August 18th to 21st, to attend the 26th World Youth Day events, which begin on August 16th. It will be his third visit to Spain. His three-day visit will be spent mostly in the company of young people at a series of events in

Madrid plus a visit to the El Escorial, Philip II's sombre palace 50 km away from the capital, to meet more young people. The Pope will be received by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia on the 19th but there are no official meetings scheduled with members of the government or opposition politicians.

The country's leading supermarket chain, Mercadona, has asked its check-out girls to wear make-up in addition to their uniform. From now on, a touch of lipstick, eye shadow and blusher will not be frowned upon, as long as it is not “too excessive”, a spokesman said. And it's not a case of discrimination – male employees have also been asked to smarten up. The news might provoke criticism from feminists but Mercadona has excellent company-staff relations. After a trial period, workers are given indefinite contracts and get six months maternity leave. It is also one of the few supermarkets that always closes on Sundays and public holidays, the only exceptions being at Christmas and New Year. And despite the recession, all Mercadona staff received a three per cent wage rise last year. Absenteeism is well below the national average and productivity rose five per cent last year – all signs of a contented staff.

Beggar tries to sell baby

Young German entrepreneur Felix Finkbeiner raised a laugh last week in Girona at the end of a meeting of the Forum Impulsa, a group which focuses on creating new companies, sponsored by one of Crown Prince Felipe's foundations. Now aged 13, Felix created the “Stop talking and begin planting” movement four years ago, for young people like himself who are trying to convince their governments to plant a million trees each to ensure their future. Felix drove the point home during the line-

EWS

up for the final photo – he covered the Prince's mouth with his hand, and told him to “stop talking and start planting”. In a more serious vein, the Prince had told the meeting earlier that the desperation felt by today's young people was unacceptable, for them and

for the future of their countries. He said it was necessary to stop young people from feeling excluded, “materially, socially and emotionally” but regretted that so many of them did not have access to the technological resources that would give

them a better future. “together we must seek solutions to our problems, overcoming disappointment and discouragement, to project our countries once again towards the future with strength, security and confidence,” the Prince said.

Police arrested a 27-year-old woman who had been offering to sell her one-month-old baby daughter for a “small amount of money” to passers-by last Friday. They received several calls from people in the central area of the city but when they arrived the woman had moved on. But a photo taken by a passer-by enabled the police to catch up with her begging another area of the city. The baby is now in the care of the city council's social services. MADRID

Anti-pollution measures studied Given the high pollution level in most of the country's large cities, the Environment ministry is studying the possibility of limiting access to city centres by car. One solution on the table is to introduce poll charges for the most polluting vehicles. Another is to impose an 80 kph speed limit in the suburbs of the most polluted cities. Both Madrid and Barcelona city councils have been studying ways to reduce their high pollution levels in line with an EU air quality directive. MADRID

110 km/h speed limit axed Last Friday, the Cabinet lifted the temporary speed limit of 110 km/h on motorways introduced in March to cut fuel consumption because of

rising oil prices. Now that petrol prices have fallen again, motorists can go back to driving at 120 km/h as of July 1st. Oil prices spiked after uprisings in

Libya and elsewhere in the Arab world. Spain is heavily dependent on imported fuel and 13% of its oil usually comes from Libya. Deputy Prime Minister

Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba said the measure had provoked "strong debate" but added that it had saved Spain €450 million in its balance of payments.

Chinese criminal gang busted The Guardia Civil have arrested 34 people and seized goods worth more than €11 million in one of the biggest operations against Chinese organized crime in the country since the late 1990s. An interior ministry spokesman said the gang was making millions of euros from contraband tobacco and clothing, among other illegal activities, in Europe and sending the money to “capos” in China. Operation Long was carried out last week in Madrid, Valencia, Cádiz, Sevilla, Huelva, Barcelona and La Coruña.

General strike starts amid cuts debate

Actress Michelle Yeoh, a former Bond girl who stars as Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in a forthcoming film, has been barred from entering Burma.

Yeoh portrays her life in “The Lady”, directed by Luc Besson and released later this year. The 48-year old Malaysian actress starred with former Bond Pierce Brosnan, and in Ang Lee's “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon”. In 1990, Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy won the Burmese election by a landslide. She then spent 15 of the next 20 years under house arrest, and was finally released last November.

SOMALIA

Libya has rejected a warrant issued by the International Criminal Court for the arrest of Col Muammar Gaddafi, saying the tribunal had no authority because it was "a tool of the Western world to prosecute leaders in the third world". The International Criminal Court(ICC) issued an arrest warrant on Monday for Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi, accusing him of crimes against humanity. The Hague-based court also issued warrants for two of Col Gaddafi's top aides - his son Saif al-Islam and intelligence chief Abdullah al-Sanussi. In a statement, the court said there were

most public services, with doctors, ambulance drivers, journalists and even statefunded actors taking part. Flights from Athens airport were cancelled. The unions say the measures will impose taxes on those earning the minimum wage, following months of other cuts which have seen unemployment rise to more than 16%. Prime Minister George Papandreou said his €28bn austerity programme was essential.

Three Britons, an American and two Kenyans caught illegally bringing more than £2m in cash into the country to pay a ransom to Somali pirates have been pardoned, six weeks after they were arrested shortly after flying into Mogadishu airport. All six, who have not been officially named, were sentenced to jail but after the president pardoned them, they left the country without the money which the government confiscated. It was the first time Westerners have been sentenced for involvement in delivering ransoms. AUSTRALIA

Tobacco giant Philip Morris has threatened to sue the government over its plan to ban logos and branding on tobacco packaging and introduce plain, brandless packets. Based in Hong Kong, Philip Morris Asia said the legislation violated an investment treaty between

On their return, the Russian sleepers were met by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, and given Russia's top honours by President Dmitry Medvedev.

Clash over new high- FACTORY Offer speed rail tunnel Police clashed with demonstrators in the Italian Alps on Monday This week only! over the construction of a new high-speed rail link with France. Tunnelling is set to start for a line from Turin to Lyon, which will cut the travel time by nearly half. Local residents built barricades to prevent heavy machinery from starting work in the picturesque Val di Susa, in northern Italy. They fear that, despite safeguards built into the multi-billion euro project in a deal signed in 2001, an

area of outstanding natural beauty is going to be spoilt. Demonstrators sat on fire barricades erected to keep out intruders, but failed to halt the works. Police used fire hoses and tear gas to disperse them. They had to escort the contractor's bulldozers to the high Alpine site where work is due to begin.

Despite environmental objections, the Italian government is determined to go ahead with the project, which is heavily backed by EU money and is estimated to cost €15bn. If the work does not start by June 30th, the country risks losing the hundreds of million euros the EU is contributing.

Emperor penguin back on its feet The young emperor penguin found washed up on a New Zealand beach is eating fish again after having endoscopic surgery to remove sand from its stomach. The penguin was found last Monday by a dogwalker on Peka Peka beach, about 37 miles north of Wellington, after swimming off course some 3,000km from its home in Antarctica. The bird's

plight has attracted worldwide attention, and hundreds of people gathered on Monday to watch a leading gastroenterologist from Wellington Hospital perform an endoscopy on the bird at Wellington zoo. The penguin's swollen stomach and intestines were flushed to remove some of the sand and small pieces of driftwood it ate after coming ashore on

UK News Dead would-be burglar already on bail after previous arrest in same month The 27-year-old would-be burglar stabbed to death by the owner of the home he had attempted to break into last Wednesday around midnight, was on police bail after being arrested on suspicion of another burglary earlier this month in Tamworth, Staffordshire. John Leonard Benell, who was from Hyde, Greater Manchester, died from a stab wound to the chest after home owner Peter Flanagan, 59, caught four men wearing dark clothing and balaclavas trying to smash their way through the back door of his house in Ethel Avenue, Salford . Also arrested at the time was Mr Flanagan's son, Neil, aged 27, with whom he shared the house, and a 21-year-old woman. Both had been released without charge on Friday. Peter and Neil Flanagan ran a construction company in Manchester together until it was disolved in 2007. The woman made a frantic 999 call as Benell's accomplices carried him away as they tried to flee

the scene and a second call alerted police to an area nearby where they found the victim who was then taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police are appealing to the public to try and find his three accomplices. Mr Flanagan’s wife Valerie, who was not at the property at the time, said: “It’s such a terrible incident. How anything like this can happen to anyone I don’t know. My husband is a great man and a great father – it’s such a shock.” Neighbours and friends expressed their disbelief at what had happened, describing the Flanagans as a normal hard-working family. The incident comes after David Cameron promised stronger support for people protecting their property from burglars. “We will put beyond doubt that homeowners and small shopkeepers who use reasonable force to defend themselves or their properties will not be prosecuted,” the prime minister said.

An Essex postman was spared jail yesterday because he blamed a Disney Rollercoaster ride for his thieving ways. George Ramplin, now 43, from Harwich told the judge that he had been involved in an accident in a

minibus when he was tenyears-old in which his teacher and seven of his classmates had died. The ride, Thunder Mountain, at Disneyland in Paris, caused him to have flashbacks to the accident, he claimed and the post

Chief Superintendent Kevin Mulligan, Salford divisional commander for Greater Manchester Police, said yesterday: “Clearly this is a shocking incident and a man has lost his life.” Asked whether the case raised issues over how far residents can go to protect themselves, he said: “We are investigating this matter within the legal framework as it stands and I don't want to speculate on political matters at this stage. If somebody was confronted by a burglar tonight, I would tell them to ring the police and use reasonable force to protect themselves.” But Shami Chakrabarti, director of civil rights group Liberty, said: “This is a problem not of law but the public understanding of it. Of course people facing intruders can use reasonable force to defend themselves. But saying that “burglars leave their rights at the threshold” is a recipe for vigilante execution and mistaken killings of family members returning home after dark.”

He had spent weeks in hospital after the 1978 crash with serious head injuries and Judge Laura Harris at Chelmsford Court said she was prepared to take account of the “exceptional circumstances and spare him a jail sentence. Ramplin must serve a six month community service order and has to stick to a six month curfew between 7pm and 7am. He has also been ordered to pay back £350 towards the Post Office’s legal and investigative costs. He had been a postman for 22 years and has lost his £30,00 a year job.

Protesters prevent eviction About 100 people belonging to the Mortgage Victims-Stop Evictions platform, which sympathises with the Real Democracy Now movement, prevented an unemployed woman from being evicted from her home in the Añoreta urbanisation in Rincon de la Victoria last Friday. The protesters began to arrive at 9am, an hour before the judicial committee was expected to arrive to reclaim the woman's

apartment for the bank. However, when the committee arrived at 10.30am, escorted by agents of the Local Police and the Guardia Civil, they were informed that the eviction had been postponed and the woman was being given more time to pay off her €130,000 mortgage. The Real Democracy Now movement has blocked several evictions in recent weeks, mainly in Madrid and Barcelona.

Andalucia's Superior Prosecutor's Office said in its report for 2010 that “the province of Malaga is, without doubt, the one which persistently presents the highest risk of criminal activity linked to extremely serious international criminal organizations”. It said the groups engaged in hashish trafficking were the worst, followed by cocaine traffickers and money launderers. However it noted a drop in the use of violence by such groups, which has been replaced by a great capacity for corrupting those in authority. The report said

Mijas town council has said it intends to ask Endesa for a moratorium on the removal of electricity meters from illegally built properties. A recent law requires the electricity company to ask for proof that a house or apartment is legal and if this is not forthcoming within 30 days, it is then required to remove the meter. A council spokesman said new mayor Angel Nozal (Partido Popular) intended to present evidence that these illegal properties are in the process of regularisation and that the

In September 2009, the Telecinco programme Salvame diario broadcast a taped telephone conversation between the couple which, the court said, was “purely personal and affectionate” and “of no public interest whatsoever”. It added that broadcasting of this kind of information did not respond “to the general interest in a democratic society” and only sought “to satisfy the unhealthy interest of those people who have a morbid curiosity about the private lives of famous people”. After studying the case, the court concluded that the “programme had the manifest intention of ridiculing the couple and their relationship”.

Hen and stag parties cause concern removal of the meters would seriously harm the many families living in them. He said the company had already removed “a considerable number of electricity meters”.

The tourism sector is viewing with concern the growing number of hen and stag parties being held along the Costa del Sol. Some hotels, bars and discotheques actively encourage the celebrations, with one hotel offering five different packages ranging from €79 to €171 per person for a three-day stay. However, other members of the tourism sector think the short-term economic benefits of such packages do not compensate for the negative long-term effects that these usually rowdy celebrations may have on the Costa del Sol's image.

Agricultural exports struggling A spokesman for the association of farmers and livestock breeders, Asaja, said that Malaga's exports of fruit and vegetables were slowly recovering but at prices up to 50 per cent below the average for this time of the year as a result of the so-called Spanish cucumber crisis. Benjamin Faulí said the products affected were not just the cucumber, lettuce and tomatoes that were originally boycotted by Germany, Russia and other EU countries, but also included peppers, melons, potatoes, watermelon and onions.

More than half of last year’s traffic fines – 83,131 – were for speeding. Road deaths had dropped 15 per cent since the lower 110 kph came into force three months ago.

It said the major problem continued to be the construction of promenades, jetties and marinas, the open sea disposal of sewage and pollution from ports and industries close to the coast. For the 13th year running, Ecologists in Action said the situation in Malaga province was “bleak”, because the areas behind the beaches were so built up.

Meet Keeping focused Pillaging and plundering for the RBL! Survivor T.O.P.S. (The Occasional Performance Society) recently held not one, but two, fundraising evenings for the 90th anniversary of the Royal British Legion poppy appeal. The original intention of just one evening had to be quickly extended to two, as tickets were sold out in just under two weeks! Over two hundred and fifty people attended the event which was held at a private house in Las Lomas, Alhaurin el Grande. The theme on both nights was centred on “pirates and the South Pacific” and the performers wowed the audience with their costumes and singing. Many of the guests entered into the spirit of the evening and turned up dressed as pirates, sailors, and island girls. The show started with some rousing 60s songs

from the excellent Andy Ross Singers, then with the audience suitably warmed up, was followed by the T.O.P.S. “pirates” with a couple of challenging Gilbert & Sullivan numbers included. The final part of the show featured the great songs from “South Pacific”, complete with sailors and island girls. The audience was treated to a mouthwatering hog roast during the interval and although

everyone was thoroughly into the “pirate” theme at this time, they were allowed to use knives and forks! There were some innovative pirate-themed games with appropriate prizes including rum, a framed and signed photograph of Johnny Depp from “Pirates of the Caribbean”, and a deck chair. A memorable and fun-filled couple of nights for a very worthy cause.

The Friends in Focus camera club members and their guests visited and took photos of the picturesque sunflowers fields and after a good lunch went to Fuente de Piedra and photographed the magnificent flamingos.

Youngsters at the Andalusian Horse Rescue Charity (ARCH) garden party on Sunday met the latest arrival, Survivor, a severely undernourished grey mare rescued from a gypsy in Fuengirola. The party, hosted by Sue and Alan Barns at their Rio Grande finca, attracted around 80 guests and raised sufficient funds to pay for 250 bales of hay which will feed the horses and donkeys for six months.

Further day trips are planned for the rest of this year and on October 19th the club is going on a coach trip staying in a 3 star hotel in Trujillo for four nights and exploring the interesting province of

Extremadura. If you would like to join them please contact Lyn Carter for further details on 605 423 985 or visit the web www.friendsinfocuscamer aclub.com

Good Companions Club The Good Companions Club,which is dedicated to raising funds for CUDECA, has just taken the penultimate day trip of a very busy season to the Nuñez de Prado organic olive oil estate in Baeña and then to a club lunch at Priego de Cordoba. This trip proved so popular that a

larger coach than usual had to be ordered. The last trip before the club closes for the summer will be on July 13th and will go to the Malaga lakes and El Chorro gorge with lunch arranged. The club will re-open at its usual venue, the Manila Bar,Los Boliches on September 6th when bookings will be taken

for the next season. The first will be a break to Madrid in October by luxury coach staying at a four star hotel and including trips to Cuenca, and the Escorial,last resting place of Spanish royalty and Franco's tomb.Contact Tony White on 952 494 730 for more information.

Daylight Seruya in robbery debate A total of seven homes fitted with ordinary Yale type locks instead of the more sturdy Spanish style bolt type locks in the Laguna and Glacis Estate areas have been targeted by burglars operating during daylight hours over the last eleven days. The apartments have had their locks and doorframes damaged in the attacks on the properties but the wouldbe burglars failed to get access to a further three. The thieves are going after jewellery and money, leaving laptops and other easily traceable items alone and seem to be attacking properties while people are out at work between 9am and 3pm. The police have asked neighbours to be extra vigilent and report anything suspicious to them where they have said they will act upon any information promptly.

TOURIST OFFICES

In talks about La Linea and the high unemployment figures, well known Gibraltarian business man Solomon Seruya said that more talks were needed between the businesses of Gibraltar and La Linea. He suggested that the two areas could collaborate in a tourism campaign in the UK to bring more British into the areas. In a radio interview on Radio Campo de Algecieras he also urged the resumption of trilateral talks in respect of border crossing to speed up the entry and exit to the Rock. More talks are also needed regarding the airport and flights over Spanish territories. Gibraltar Airport came 5th in a recent poll of the most dangerous airports to fly in and out of in the world due to crosswind, beating such places as Hong Kong.

Muriel Pilkington

Martin Delfín Writes for the English language version of

Falling out

Arrogance in theBasque Country

B

O

ne of the most shocking results of the May 22 regional and local elections was the fall of the Socialist stronghold, Extremadura. Of all the country’s 17 regions, Andalucia and Extremadura have been the most faithful to the Socialist Party. Even before the civil war broke out, both regions were hotbeds of revolution largely because their small upper classes were extremely rich and determined never to throw a crumb to the hideously poor masses. As a result, communism, socialism and anarchism were rife in both regions, which suffered greatly at the hands of the Franco’s troops, especially the Moroccan contingent, when they overran them in the first months of the war.

B

oth regions reverted to their left-wing ways when the first free elections were held after the dictator’s death and have been governed by the Socialist Party for the past 32 years in the case of Extremadura and 30 in Andalucia.

S

o you can imagine the magnitude of political tsunami that occurred when the most voted party in the May 22nd regional election in Extremadura turned out to be the Partido Popular.

B

ut all was not lost. The Socialists turned to their handy allies, the Communist-dominated Izquierda Unida (IU, United Left), which had helped save Zapatero’s bacon when he failed to get an absolute majority in the 2004 general election. That partnership ended acrimoniously. The Socialists have a nasty habit of being nice to you when they need you and then refusing to return the favour. Zapatero threw the IU a few crumbs, like the Historical Memory Law, which allegedly had the objective of righting the wrongs of the Franco dictatorship. It was admittedly a big crumb because the IU has been using it mercilessly to keep bitter civil war memories alive which it seems to believe will eventually lead to its most cherished dream, the installation of a Third Republic.

H

owever, IU-Extremadura (IU-E) decided not to play ball this time around. The Socialist Party had won absolute majorities until the 1995 regional election, forcing the then premier Juan Carlos Rodriguez Ibarra to turn to the

IU, promising them the sun, moon and stars if they would help him stay in power. (He was first elected in 1983 and retired in 2007.) The IU swallowed the bait and eventually managed to get the regional parliament to pass several of the laws it proposed. An IU-E spokesman said recently that Rodriguez Ibarra boasted for years that none of those laws were ever enforced. So this time, IU-E decided to sit back, arms crossed, and let the PP take power. This simply means that when the three parties in the regional parliament vote sometime in early July on who will lead the next government, the IU will abstain and the PP will win.

I

U general coordinator Cayo Lara – a perfect little Stalin if ever there was one – rushed off to Merida, the regional capital, to try to convince local IU leader Pedro Escobar to throw in his lot with the Socialists – even stirring up the worst memories of the massacres carried out by Franco troops during the Civil War – but to no avail. Escobar insisted that the grassroots members would decide – and they voted not to back the Socialists. The latter's sins had finally come home to roost.

L

ast Sunday, Sr Rodriguez Ibarra showed just how much of a political opportunist he had been when, commenting on events in his former fief, he said “Socialists and communists are bitter enemies”. What cynicism!

I

n fact one good thing may come out of the debacle in Extremadura – it could be the death knell for the IU. The party picked up a lot more votes all over the country on May 22nd – but only because it fielded more “green” candidates. Seeing how well the strategy worked in the local elections, the IU is now cuddling up to the Greens in the hope of doing better in the next general election than it did the last time around, when it lost three of its parliamentary seats. The Greens and the IU have even less in common than the IU and the Socialist Party had. The Greens want to save Mother Nature while the IU wants to impose a political ideology, so it will be interesting to see how long this latest opportunistic alliance lasts.

M

eanwhile, the Socialist Party continues to head into its long dark night of defeat.

ildu is showing us that it is not above pressing all the wrong buttons when it comes to governing. The pro-independence coalition that was swept into office in Guipúzcoa province and municipalities across the Basque Country and Navarre has taken a radical posture in dealing with administrative affairs. First, Bildu officials began prohibiting the bodyguards of certain counsillors from entering town halls in a bid to show that there is no longer a need for politicians to have paid armed escorts to protect them. Then in San Sebastián, where Juan Carlos Izagirre took over as mayor, the Bildu-led council took down a portrait of King Juan Carlos from the town hall’s main meeting room.

M

artin Garitano, a journalistturned-Bildu politician took control of the administrative duties in Guipúzcoa province after the Basque nationalist party (PNV) and the Socialist failed to agree on a partnership to keep the radical coalition from governing in San Sebastian. During his swearing in, Garitano sparked an outcry when he wore a badge with the prison number of Arnaldo Otegi, the jailed former leader of the outlawed Batasuna party. Politicians also complained that Garitano, as well as other Bildu officials, have not made any public demands for ETA to disband.

I don’t like it,” said Prime Minister José Rodríguez Zapatero when asked on Friday about Bildu’s new positioning in the Basque Country. “They will have to respect the law.” What Bildu hasn’t done since it began winning control of the northern municipalities is working just above the law. The Partido Popular (PP), for some reason, believes that it is the Socialists’ fault for allowing Bildu to come into existence. But indeed it was Zapatero’s government which tried to keep Bildu off the ballot on May 22nd by unsuccessfully seeking a court order.

B

y showing its cards, Bildu is demonstrating arrogance and complete disrespect for Spanish institutions. The judiciary was correct in giving the Basque abertzale radical left a chance to earn voters’ approval by letting them field candidates on the May 22 ballot. What is not correct is allowing Bildu to make its own rules in a region that has been afflicted with tension and violence for the last 50 years. The people at Bildu have been given a golden opportunity to come up with a blueprint for the future without ETA. Unfortunately, Bildu’s contemptuous attitude is starting to gnarl on Spaniards.

Childish ploys

E

very country has them – crazy laws that are on the books that sometimes verge on the hypocritical rather than a legal argument. Take Spain ’s juvenile protection laws, for instance. Newspapers, television and other media are forbidden to show a minor’s face unless they have strict permission from the child’s parents. Yet, for some uncanny reason, images that come from overseas are exempt from this rule. The law is intended to protect Spanish children not the rest of kids around the globe.

T

hen last week, the Spanish Cinema Academy announced that actors under 16-years of age will no longer be eligible for Goya awards. According to the president, the aim is to avoid "pressures and obligations" that are being imposed on young actors. The move comes after unprecedented awards for new actress and actor were given this year to Marina Comas, 16, and Francesc Colomer, 15, for their remarkable performances in “Pa negre” (Black Bread), a harsh drama about Catalonia in the post-Civil War years. There was some controversy when the two teenagers won their Goyas. A move was initiated among academy members – according to some sources, the sore losers who believe the award should have been theirs – to keep children out of the running. This type of child’s play isn’t right when it is applied on certain occasions for the benefit of some and not all. Minors’ protection laws are more than just disguising a kid’s face or keeping a child from entering the artistic job market at an early age. They should focus on getting the children to school, ensuring that juveniles are afforded the same rights – to some extent – as their parents, and keeping them safe and healthy. It is time to re-examine which laws should be thrown out and which ones need to be revamped.

A walk around majestic Olvera Written by Gary Dearden

Just off the road between Campillos and Jerez, Olvera is one of Andalucia’s finest white villages perched high on a rocky outcrop thrust into the eye of a railway-building ´tornado´, although unfortunately the line was never finished.

Andalucia that few others will have seen. The Via Verde is a walking treasure to savour for a long time afterwards.

M

uch of Olvera’s current popularity and appeal as a place to visit arises out of a remarkable piece of good luck dating back to the 1920s when, in a time of unprecedented economic difficulty, the government decided to invest in the town as the location for a key station on a new railway track being built to ferry grapes and olives from Almargen to the thriving and prosperous sherry town of Jerez. For a few years, Olvera found itself

A

last word of caution – you shouldn’t expect to hear English being spoken when you visit Olvera - this is the real Andalucia, not the Costa del Sol, so, if in doubt, take a phrase book and enjoy!

he going is fairly easy throughout, even for inexperienced walkers, but if you should decide to take on the entire route, the total linear distance will almost certainly mean you’ll need to arrange transport back to your starting point from whichever end you choose to finish. It’s certainly a full day’s walk so you may even decide to make a weekend of it, as those stiff legs will be calling for a good soak afterwards both inside and out!

ccording to the museum, the town’s historical roots sink deep in a region that has, over many centuries, been the target of successive conquerors, including the Visigoths, the Romans and later the Moors who, in the 9th century, laid Olvera’s foundations on what, for their purposes, was clearly the most easily defensible site for miles around. And they were right, as it stood unchallenged for almost 500 years until the early 1300s when the Christian forces of Alfonso XI took it back. For so long, indeed until the 1800s, the town was completely out of the reach of the Spanish authorities and became known as a notorious haven for outlaws and fugitives, to be immortalised in an old Andalucian saying, “Kill your man and flee to Olvera”. Happily these days, the locals are less controversial, preferring instead to focus their attention on the many hundreds of thousands of olive trees that stretch away from the town’s boundaries on all sides and make up the mainstay of its modern commercial development.

he Via Verde de la Sierra, to give its full title, is surely one of Andalucia’s most enjoyable and easily accessible outdoor routes. It runs from Olvera to Puerto Serrano, has six viaducts, more than twenty tunnels most with lights, but not all, so take a torch - two restaurants and a delightful small hotel formed in the original railway station building at Olvera. Car parking is free and bikes - and even horses! - can be hired at either end of the route. As it is mainly flat with a level, tarmac surface in places, wheelchair users and/or parents with buggies should be able to cope with the route without too much trouble, although there are some dips and troughs where assistance may be necessary. However, the real pleasure of the Via Verde is in walking the entire 38km (just under 24 miles). If this distance is off-putting, an option would be to drive to Coripe, from which point the distance is only 26km, and there is also the benefit of a pleasant bar/restaurant.

The lovely white village of Olvera is very conveniently located for prospective visitors. It’s just off the A382 Campillos to Jerez road; or a perfect, if somewhat off the beaten track, second stop on a round trip via Ronda, from where it is some 35km to the northeast on the A376 heading for Seville, then turning right onto the A382 near Algodonales.

July 4th USA Style BBQ for Dreamboats & Petticoats The American International Club of Nerja (AICN) has rapidly grown from 38 members to 100 plus in just a few years. The Club's democratic procedures and motto may account for much of that: "If it isn't FUN, we don't do it!". Again this year, the American Club of Nerja will celebrate the unique American holiday of separation from Great Britain on July 4th, with a multi-cultural AmericanSpanish BBQ EXPLOSION on the Playazo Beach, Nerja.

charities. Yearly, significant donations are given to charities to say “thank you” to Spain as host country. Members donated over 1,000 euros to Ciudad de los Niño’s, Taller de Amistad, A.N.A.B.E. and ANAC which supports the Nerja Cultural Centre. At Nerja's “Resident’s Day” members generated charity funds by selling coffee, cake, sangria and hand-made crafts. The Club hosts regular cultural/scenic outings, petanque, walks, tapa tours, lunches, dinners, and informal coffee meetings for members. The fast growing membership enjoys a great selection of activities. For the July 4th “Explosion”, American Club member's price is 22.50 euros, 27.50 euros for guests. Those joining before July 4th benefit from club member's discount.

MOVIES TO WATCH OUT FOR

Bridesmaids BY PAUL FEIG, Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph

Annie’s life is a mess. And when she finds out her lifetime best friend Lilian is engaged, it brings it all home. Annie (Wiig) is a thirty something singleton who is going through a bit of a bad patch. Her bakery business has folded and she is sharing a flat with two weird and plump Brit men ( watch out for Matt Lucas) and her love life is hopeless. She has a friends with benefits relationship with Ted ( Mad Men’s Jon Hamm) but he calls all the shots. Things start to liven up when her best friend Lilian

(Maya Rudolph – daughter of singer Minnie Ripperton) announces that she is going to get married and asks Annie to be her Maid of Honour. Lilian’s “new best friend” Helen (Rose Dyer) is definitely an organiser who reckons that she knows best so cue some tense moments between her and Annie as they fight over the wedding plans. So far so rom-com. Yes, there

are the set pieces you would expect – all the bridesmaids and the bride to be hit the booze at the engagement party, have a terrible time at the dress selection day caused by mass hangovers, and head off for a never to be forgotten hen party. It sounds a bit like a girly version of The Hangover, but hang onto your hats. There are some gross out moments true, but this

comedy has had even the sniffiest of critics lauding it for its laugh out loud moments. It’s a comedy with a heart, with some poignant messages about friendship and rivalry and is set to be the runaway big laughter hit of the summer. So put Sex and The City behind you and head off for a laughter-fest which will have guys and girls alike enjoying a feast of humour.

top as Hollywood’s finest A listers try to out-pout each other but for me the real fun came from checking off the list of bloopers and plot failures.

recently spent an enjoyable couple of hours watching what should have been a tense, thrilling disaster movie from 1976 about the prospect of an instantly infectious plague devastating central Europe. During the first half of The Cassandra Crossing, a train full of unsuspecting travellers gradually become infected with a biological warfare agent that the American government just happened to have stashed away in a secret laboratory in Geneva. While the all-star train passengers wrestle with the unfamiliar super-bug, the second half of the film sees tension rise as they realise that their more immediate fate lies not in the jaws of some ferocious pathogen but in the hands of an American General trying to hide the evidence of the infection by sending their train hurtling over a rickety bridge and into the deep canyon below.

irstly, the train is a modern, electrified machine running between European capital cities. That is, until the plot calls for someone to climb on the roof or to be rescued in a helicopter cradle. Then all of a sudden, our electric train is a diesel engine, able to nip through tunnels and along open countryside without the hint of an overhead cable. In another glaring error, the young Martin Sheen is trying to climb along the outside of the train, stretching his legs far apart to gain purchase on the slippery metal windows which are a couple of feet apart from where he is standing and yet only four inches apart on the inside.

F

ow, while I may have spoiled the plot for myself by checking out the film on Wikipedia as I watched it, my enjoyment was no less diminished as I was lucky enough to come across a page of continuity errors and plot holes that were wider and deeper than the river valley the General was aiming the train at.

S

ophia Loren; Ava Gardener; Martin Sheen (looking very very young); Richard Harris and Burt Lancaster were all on board. There was even a cameo for super star American Football player, O.J. Simpson and the story loosely held together all of the necessary ingredients for a good seventies disaster movie. There was the divorced couple looking to get back together, the rich woman of advancing years with her significantly younger toy boy and a perfectly matched, beautiful young couple that represented love’s young dream and everything wholesome in the world. Obviously one of the young lovers dies a tragic, ugly and painful death. Luckily though, despite the cute Basset Hound being the first to catch the plague-like virus from ‘patient zero’, half way through you do get to find out that the dog is recovering and will probably pull through.

earing an international outcry about the discovery of U.S, biological warfare on the shores of Lake Geneva, Burt Lancaster, as the wily American General, plots to send the train off its original course to a disused section of trunk line that leads to the afore mentioned rickety bridgr - the Cassandra Crossing. In a moment of pure serendipity for the General, this stretch of track has been unused since World War II and so the bridge over the canyon has not been maintained for years. Also, fortunately, it leads to Poland, away from civilised Western Europe and into the unpopulated and unimportant hinterland that lies beyond the Iron Curtain. But most fortunate of all has to be that this unused and forgotten section of war time railway line apparently seems to have been blessed with a modern electrified makeover that no-one mentions, and the power is switched on, allowing the (once again) electric train to continue towards the Cassandra Crossing at a pace. Now, it never said on Wikipedia if the Basset Hound lives or dies, so that was still something to keep me glued to the end but I have to say that there was a little twist that I hadn´t seen coming. All in all it was a brilliant piece of dated tat that kept me from gardening, decorating and washing the car for a couple of hours on a Sunday.

Once you get used to the idea that letting go of something gives you the change that you have desired for a long time - you could be faced with a feeling of wanting to hold on. You could have fears that once you let go you will never be able to go back again. Courage will find you and in the end you will realise that you have no other choice but to go for what your heart truly desires. Although you feel soft inside you are also very strong. The truth has a stabilising effect on you this week and even though there are problems waiting to be solved the scenario is no different to many other situations you have faced in the past. You may be the one who wishes to try a different approach, however, and take more of a risk of expression to see how it is received. Larger forces are at work and this can leave you feeling slightly unsure of your next move. Events are unpredictable. Finances become the focus of this week and you are being given a real advantage to sort out a situation that has been getting under your skin. With a mind as razor sharp as yours you will be able to tell the real value of a thing and not be conned or dissuaded by anyone. If a big purchase needs to be made then this is the time to go out and get that bargain. By the weekend you will have the gumption to follow through confidently on something you have initiated. Things are accelerating with warp speed and you may have a hard time keeping all the balls in the air but keep your centre and hold your ground, keeping hold of the vision of the final destination. You are in the process of launching into the brand new; it is time to move up and out of the old. There is a certain status and a key piece of respect you may have finally earned granting you entrance into a new level of life experience, the kind of living you have imagined for yourself. What a difference a few days make – there is a fresh new wind of understanding and heart fluttering that elevates your spirit and gives you a sense of purpose. For a while now confusion and frustration regarding an ongoing issue have plagued you and this will slowly simmer down as time progresses. Do not be a shy pussycat this week and commit to having that long planned conversation you have been meaning to get round too. A wonderful surge of confidence is rising up within, there is a feeling of knowing who you are and what you are willing to put up with and what you no longer need in your life. You can demand a lot of attention this week and any conflict that occurs will find others fighting in your corner - all those around you seem to be on your side and cheering you along. Finances are slowly looking up but do not become complacent, keep an eye on your balance.

Kym’s Kitchen ...you don’t have to be a chef!

Phew it’s hot! So this week, what better than a yummy ice cream cake for the first recipe. It’s good for you because it has fruit in it too..... honestly!

Banana Split Ice-cream cake Ingredients:

Makes 8 servings (or 4 in my house!)

● 3/4 pack Digestive or Chips Ahoy biscuits, bashed into crumbs ● 60gr unsalted butter, melted (The biscuits are quite salty enough!) ● 2 bananas, sliced ● 1 litre vanilla or strawberry ice cream, slightly softened ● 500ml can crushed pineapple, drained ● 8fl oz double whipping cream ● 40gr chopped walnuts or almonds – you can leave these off if you're allergic and use grated chocolate instead! ● 50gr maraschino type cherries ● 65gr dark chocolate, melted (optional)

Directions 1. Mix the biscuit crumbs with the melted butter then press into a 9-inch pie plate. Once it has cooled, you can drizzle a layer of the optional melted chocolate over the top if you want. This goes crispy and adds extra oomph to the whole thing – lousy for the diet though of course!

cream and spread over top. Sprinkle with nuts and / or chocolate.

3. Place the pie in the freezer for 4 hours or until firm then garnish with the cherries.

And then enjoy....

2. Arrange the bananas over bottom of crust (and chocolate) then spread the ice cream in an even layer over the bananas. Top with drained pineapple then whip the

Fear has been known to get the best of people. At times it can spiral and soar within like a bird in flight never knowing when or where it will land. You are being asked to acknowledge the inner chaos you feel, even though it may feel as though it has come out of nowhere. It is time to look at it objectively in the hope of uncovering what has ignited these feelings in the first place. Once September 23rd you do you will find a space you feel happy in and you will rise above the fear. October 22nd

Things are not what they once were and you may have some concern that you are not making the impact that you once did. You could be worried that you are losing your touch. You may have the feeling of “why should I bother?” or you simply may not care about something as much as you once did. Bridges have been crossed and in ways your role has changed. You are about to experience validating after-effects of some recent dedicated efforts.

Marrow & Ginger Jam Ingredients:

Makes about 4 lbs (2 kg) of jam.

● 1.5 kg marrow ● 500 gr cooking apples ● 50 gr root ginger ● Juice of 2 lemons (or 4 tablespoons of bottled lemon juice)

SAGITTARIUS Sometimes in life if we are not pushed, then we don’t grow, we don’t rise to

● 1.5 kg jam sugar

the heights that we were destined to reach. If we are not tested in life, then we do not know what we are made of or how much we really have within us. There has been a lot of pressure on your shoulders lately and it has taken an almighty effort to keep it all together. As the days progress every piece of November 22nd December 21st effort you have invested will make its way back to you like a boomerang.

Directions

CAPRICORN Whenever you have held yourself steadfast and stuck to your guns, living honestly and being true to yourself, going against the grain even when others did not align with your way of thinking then you are about to experience the results of your diligent pursuits. It will feel like you are an observer of the great gains you have actually made and are able to see objectively a greater vision nd December 22 of where you now wish to be. January 19th

PISCES

February 19th March 20th

A lot in your life may feel uncertain, things may seem eerily quiet too as a certain silence deafens a part of you, creating the feeling of having nothing to hold onto, as if your innermost desires are slipping through your fingers. Sometimes in life things are cut down in order to rebuild something better from the ground up. This is a time to wipe a slate clean and to start anew, to rebuild with fresh energy and intention. Your heart is telling you to go for something and your head is telling you to let it go. You could want something that is just not any good for you. There is lingering emotion within you that you may not be able to shake this week linked with desire, but as you work through your fixation and create a new channel for the energy to be nurtured and fed, you will find it starts to flow with a freeing ease. It will all be clear soon.

1. Peel the marrow, discard the seeds and cut into cubes. 2. Peel and core the apples and cut the flesh into cubes. 3. Place in pan and steam until tender and then mash. 4. Add the lemon juice. 5. Bruise the root ginger and wrap in a piece of muslin and place in the pan. 6. Add the sugar, simmer and stir until

dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally as the pulp thickens and setting point is reached. 7. Pour into hot sterilized jars immediately and cover. (Be careful – if the jars aren't hot, they'll explode with hot jam and glass all over your kitchen! Pop the jars in an oven on low heat for about 20 minutes)

There seems to be a glut of marrows about at the moment and, once you've stuffed them with a spicy mincemeat and covered with white sauce, or used them in pesto you're still left with what seems hundreds of these good-for-you vegetables. I'm assured by my neighbour that you can make a wonderful rum out of them using brown sugar but as I'm not sure exactly what the law is here for making what is hooch,I'll keep that one to myself for now. Perhaps someone would like to clarify this point of law for me, then, if I'm not going to be taken to the Alhaurin Hilton, I'll give you the recipe! So, for now, why not try this delicious marrow and ginger jam.

TAN IS TOP

Sales soar for tan tights Tan coloured tights used to be the preserve of the 60s and 70s – but now they are a top fashion accessory. They are not called American Tan any more – the fashion tag du jour is “nude” and they are everywhere. Celebs like Cheryl Cole and Carla Bruni have helped put them back on the fashion map and they adorned many legs at

the recent Royal Wedding, complementing the uber fashionable nude shoe. Soaring sales have confirmed that the tights that our mums wore are now back in style. Overall, sales of nude hosiery rose

by up to 85 per cent over the past year. And leading hosiery firm Wolford says sales of its tan tights in Britain are 29.5 per cent higher compared to the same time last year. "A spokesman said:”Tan

tights are particularly popular in the spring and summer as our customers do not want to go straight from winter opaque tights to bare legs.” And the head of lingerie design at Marks and Spencer, Soozie Jenkinson, said:” Whether its

down to the celeb bare leg effect or the recent weather, British women have embraced the trend of tan tights.” Sales of M&S “suntan” shade tights were up by more than 50 per cent on the year and “nude” tights up by 85 per cent.

Peacocks have also reported soaring sales in the past two months – its customers bought 130,000 pairs in April and the first half of May, and the chain put it down to the Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Middleton effect.

Super-cream Tiny Tom plays it big internet sell-out Hardly a week goes by without a new super anti-ageing face cream hitting the shops – and last week a new “guaranteed or your money back” product caused an internet stampede. Just 300 Olay Professional Anti-Wrinkle Kits were available on the Boots website on pre-sale and they sold out in 39 minutes. Independent tests showed that the kit was better at reducing the depth and appearance of wrinkles around the eyes than a prescription drug alternative. The kit costs £44.99 and includes a day and night cream and an anti wrinkle complex and it sold out in 17 minutes

Charismatic Tom Cruise may be – but the one thing he ain’t is tall. The diminutive actor is only 5ft 7in (and some say that’s in heels). So fans of author Lee Child’s detective hero Jack Reacher have been staggered to hear that the Cruiser has been chosen to play the character in a new film called One Shot. Reacher is described as being 6ft 5in and weighing 18 stone. Blogs and social media have been buzzing

when it was launched in the US. So to find out what the fuss is about prospective purchasers need to register with the

with the news of the supposed miscasting. Reacher has appeared in 15 of Child’s books, which have sold more than 40 million worldwide.

In One Shot the detective investigates a case in which a lone sniper murders five people. In one book Reacher is described as “built like a brick outhouse...with a face like a catcher’s mitt”. Not like Cruise the last time anyone looked. Child has defended

the choice. He said that Reacher’s size was a metaphor for an unstoppable force, which Cruise portrays in his own way.

'New drugs' offset cocaine and heroin gains

Diabetes: good and bad news Type 2 diabetes, which affects millions of middleaged people in Europe alone, could be wiped out by

cutting calories severely for just two months, researchers at Newcastle University have said. After a small-scale trial, they found that diabetics who consumed just 600 calories a day – the amount many people would eat at lunch alone – were able to throw away their tablets. Eighteen months on, some are still free of type 2 diabetes, which is linked to obesity and usually occurs in middle age.

many sufferers eventually need tablets or insulin injections. A spokesman for Diabetes UK, which funded the study, warned that no one should go on such a drastic diet without speaking to his or her doctor.

Diabetes rate has doubled The number of adults with diabetes in the world has more than doubled since 1980, researchers from Imperial College London and Harvard University have concluded after analysing data from 2.7 million people across the world. They said the total number of people with diabetes - which can be fatal - has risen from 153 million to 347 million and called for better detection and treatment to combat the rise. Seventy per cent of the rise was due to people living longer.

The researchers described the result as remarkable and said it proved that the condition need not be a life sentence. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas does not make enough insulin – a hormone key in the conversion of sugar into energy – and the insulin that is made does not work properly. The condition is often controlled initially with a stringent diet and exercise regime, but

Gains made in tackling the use of cocaine and heroin are being offset by the rising consumption of synthetic and prescription drugs, according to the UN’s annual report on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). A number of new synthetic compounds have emerged, which were commonly marketed as "legal" substitutes for drugs like cocaine or ecstasy, the report said. These include synthetic drugs, as well as drugs based on cannabis, cocaine and opiates, which are often designed to evade regulations or law enforcement, or to replace

drugs that are being supplied in lesser quantities. Some contain unregulated substances and are known as "legal highs". In addition, the non-medical use of prescription drugs was reported to be spreading in developed and developing countries. In Europe, which the UN described as among the most "innovative" regions for new drugs, 40 new substances were notified in the European earlywarning system in 2010, compared to 24 in 2009. The seized drugs included piperazines, cathinones, synthetic cannabinoids, tryptamines and

phenethylamines. Piperazine was developed for the treatment of parasitic worms and as an antidepressant. Derivatives of piperazine are often sold as ecstasy. Other examples of "new drugs" are mephedrone, often touted as a legal alternative to amphetamine or cocaine, and "spice", a synthetic product that emulates the effect of cannabis. Overall, the UN estimated that between 149 and 272 million people around the world used illicit substances in 2009.

Opinion & Comment n 27

the

“THE NEWS”WANTS TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS Send letters to the editor as part of an e-mail text to editorial@thenewsonline.es

Roy Hughes Open letter to Foreign Office minister Mr Jeremy Browne M.P. Dear Mr. Browne, First I must declare an interest. With others my wife, Rachelle, is a founder member of British Pensioners Abroad (B.P.A.) who are supported by The Pension Forum U.K. Their joint aim is to unite all U.K. based and expatriate pensioners in a campaign for a decent living pension for ALL pensioners both at home and abroad. I'd like to start with a couple of quotes which I believe should be borne in mind when reading this letter: 1. Prime Minister David Cameron M.P.: "Pensioners deserve security, dignity and quality of life in their old age." 2. Pensions Minister Steve Webb M.P.: “Today's pensioners will always be my first concern.” I have read with interest the reports in the local English language press of your recent consular road show in Spain. I fully agree with your comments about the need for fuller integration by expatriates living here. As for learning the language, I trust the Spanish translation sent of the gist of what I have to say bears reading! All three of your recommendations are valid. but whilst it is, of course, free to register on the padron, a lack of money restricts access to learning Spanish - not all ayuntamientos offer free lessons and text books are not cheap. Volunteering, too,

Torremuelle usually involves travel and other costs as my wife and I know from supporting CUDECA and an animal rescue centre. Like the U.K. petrol/diesel prices are exhorbitant. Spain is no longer the cheap place to live that we moved to. Many of us now have to watch the pennies/cents. I expect your talks with vice consul Steve Jones and local organisations like Age Concern have left you in no doubt of the dire financial straits many British pensioners here are in. The prime minister talks of "dignity". What dignity is there in going cap-in-hand seeking charitable handouts from the local authorities? Most of us have friends and aquaintances amongst the other expatriate E.U. citizens retired here. When we tell them how little we receive in U.K. (after a full working life's National Insurance contributions, remember) they look at us in disbelief and ask "But how can you live on it? “ The answer is we no longer can. The poor everywhere cannot participate fully in society. Just a couple of examples of the monthly state pension for a single person: Spain €601.40(14 payments a year equates to €665 per month), Holland €1,200. Again, I have no doubt that you are fully aware of the following facts, but for those pensioners who still may be unaware of them, I think they are worth repeating here:

1.

Britain has almost the worst state pension in the developed world. It comes third from bottom of 46 countries. This from a country that spends billions on unpopular wars and millions on aid to countries wealthier than our own whilst it leaves its own pensioners in poverty. 2. If the U.K. paid its pensioners the E.U. average of state pensions it would equate to 11.2% of G.D.P. This would give every British pensioner £300 per week. 3. The current state poverty level in Britain is £174 a week(£754 a month) yet the full state pension is £102 a week(£442 a month). A married couple gets £160 a week. 4. A percentage of pensioners, some of them servicemen and women who are veterans of campaigns from W.W.2 to the Falklands War, do not receive even the above currently inadequate amounts. And, British expatriate pensioners are denied any top-ups such as the winter fuel allowance. Unbelievably, from certain politicians now in government, who promised justice and fairness for all during the last general election campaign, existing pensioners and those retiring over the next two years, will be excluded from the proposed non-means-tested flat rate state pension of £155 per week. Some justice! Some fairness! Throughout the E.U. and beyond, (not to mention the current 14,000.000 in the U.K.) there are hundreds of thousands of British pensioners, many of whom retain the right to vote in British general elections. Considerable voting potential you'll agree. I predict that for starters those votes will be going to the party that ensures that existing pensioners are not excluded nor discriminated against when the proposed flat rate pension of £155 per week, per pensioner is introduced. Furthermore, the party that pledges in its party manifesto at the next general election to work towards providing an E.U. average state pension of 11.2% of G.D.P. or £300 p.w. per pensioner will get our votes. Finally, my wife has asked me to let you know that Laura Geddes at the consulate was really helpful and provided much sound advice when she contacted her last year.

e Scorpion As we move through the year, the winter constellations make way for a whole new view of the night sky and we get to see the summer constellations.

N

ow, I don’t think that many of the constellations look very much like what they are supposed to represent but now and then one of them appears that really does look like its namesake.

O

ne of these cannot be fully seen from the UK and until I moved to Spain I had never really seen it properly. But at this time of year and at this Southerly latitude Scorpio the Scorpion is dominating the southern part of the sky and I’ve got to admit, the star pattern really does look like a huge Scorpion climbing up the sky. From the UK it is too low down in the sky and the lower half never rises above the horizon.

I

f you want to find it, go outside after dark and look due south quite low down near the horizon and you will see a bright, red coloured star called Antares. Antares makes up the red eye of the scorpion, above and slightly to the right is the head of the scorpion with its two pincers either side of the head. Now follow the head star back down through Antares and continue following the line of stars that point down to the horizon and you will see that before they reach the horizon they curve up to the left and form the tail of the scorpion’s ‘sting’.

N

ow it is quite a big constellation, it covers a large part of the southern sky. But once you have found it you will be surprised at how much it really does look like a scorpion!

A

ccording to Greek mythology, Scorpio was sent by the Goddess Hera to kill the hunter Orion after he had boasted that he could kill any animal in the forest. The scorpion crawled unseen up to Orion and stung him in the ankle. Orion and Scorpio were then placed on opposite sides of the heavens and never appear in the sky together lest the battle continues. Don’t you just love these Greek stories?

B

ut there is a sad story attached to this constellation. Antares, the giant

red star, is over 600 light years from us and is truly a giant. It is over 700 times bigger than our Sun. If it was placed in the centre of our solar system then its outer edge would be between Mars and Jupiter. If there ever were any habitable planets orbiting Antares then they were long ago swallowed up as it expanded.

A

ntares is a dying star. It has used up all of its fuel of hydrogen and is becoming a super red giant. Eventually it will explode into a cataclysmic supernova. As it is 600 light years from us then this may already have happened and we are simply waiting for the light from the explosion to reach us.

T

he tail of Scorpio lies close to the centre of our galaxy the milky way so is a fine area to scan around with your binoculars. It contains several cluster groups of stars that are easily picked up with either binoculars or a small telescope. In particular a tight group of over 100 stars known as Messier 7 (named after the 17th century French astronomer Charles Messier) M7 can be found just to the left of the star that forms the ‘sting’ in the tail of the scorpion. In reasonably dark skies M7 can even be seen with the naked eye, through your binoculars you should be able to see past the stars that make up M7 and directly into the myriad of stars behind that form part of the Milky Way.

P

lease note; I will not be holding the astronomy sessions on the Benalmadena Mountain this year, I have to return to the UK for a while. For more info go to www.kencampbell.info

Boullier: Renault keen on Webber Lotus Renault GP team boss Eric Boullier has issued an open invitation to Mark Webber by revealing he is keen to sign the Australian if he decides to leave Red Bull Racing at the end of the season.Webber's latest twelve month deal with Red Bull comes to an end at the end of the current season, with the Australian yet to put pen to paper on an extension that would keep him with the team into 2012.

First ever MotoGP victory for Texan Ben Spies Former World super bike champion Spies gave a dominant performance in Saturday's Dutch TT at Assen

That incident put clear air between Spies and world championship leader Casey Stoner, one of many riders to struggle with a lack of heat in the rear tyre this weekend. While the Repsol Honda rider was still building up grip in the cool conditions, Spies was able to maintain flat out pace - and held a 3.5sec lead after just three laps. Stoner later began to match the pace of Spies, but by then the Factory Yamaha rider - in his second season

of MotoGP- was able to keep the Australian at bay. Spies, who previously had only taken one podium from the first six rounds of the year, guided his special red-andwhite M1 to victory by 7.697sec over Stoner at the

next year's (1000cc) chassis and a new seamless transmission gearbox - saw the Italian megastar rise from eleventh on the grid to fifth at the end of lap one. The seven-time MotoGP

Vettel dominant again at the Valencia F1 Euro GP Sebastian Vettel didn't leave it long to return to winning ways with his sixth win of the 2011 season in a European Grand Prix that failed to deliver as the previous two races had, but still secured a place in the F1 record books.

end of the 26 laps. Stoner's Repsol Honda team-mate Andrea Dovizioso quickly dropped away from Stoner, but his third place was never under serious threat. Valentino Rossi's first race on the Ducati Desmosedici GP11.1 - which combines this year's 800cc engine with

Marco Simoncelli and Jorge Lorenzo race to re-mount

champion then passed Cal Crutchlow for fourth, a position he held for the rest of the race, finishing threeseconds behind countryman Dovizioso - but over 30sec from victory. Rookie Crutchlow, riding in his first race since breaking his collarbone two weeks' ago at Silverstone, was forced to pit from fifth with a front tyre problem. The Englishman rejoined to finish 14th and last. After the first lap incident, reigning world champion Lorenzo mounted a charge through the field, reaching sixth by the flag - but he has dropped from 18 to 28 points behind Stoner. Simoncelli was slower to restart, but eventually fired his RC212V back into life and was credited with ninth place.

All 24 cars that started the race were still running at the finish, making it only the fourth time that an F1 race has been completed without a retirement while the race also had more classified finishers than any other in the history of the sport. Aside from that, Valencia 2011 will be remembered for little other than another masterclass from defending champion Vettel, who seems able to defend his lead at will and control proceedings from the front, extending his championship advantage to 77 points – the equivalent of more than three race victories. Vettel gradually pulled away from team-mate Mark Webber through the opening laps of the race as the Australian found himself defending against the Ferrari

of Fernando Alonso – the Spaniard having made up a place at the start to get ahead of Lewis Hamilton's McLaren. Having said prior to the race that he was confident of challenging for a place on the podium, Hamilton's hopes all but ended at the start as his slow getaway also allowed Felipe Massa to jump ahead, with the Brazilian briefly holding third going into turn two before slotting in behind Alonso as the field headed into turn three. As Vettel continued to lead, Webber came under increasing pressure from Alonso but despite

maintaining his position in the first round of stops, the Australian was powerless to stop Alonso diving down the inside at turn twelve on lap 21 to move into second place, sending the Spanish crowd into raptures. Alonso wouldn't stay ahead for long however as Red Bull's decision to bring Webber in for his second stop a lap earlier helped him jump back into second. The pair then ran together, with Vettel a few seconds down the road, until the final round of stops when Alonso jumped back ahead having been able to run three laps more on his soft compound Pirelli tyres.

Spies became the first former World Superbike rider to win a MotoGP race since Troy Bayliss in 2006, by converting his first front-row start of the year into the lead at turn one, then bolting away from the field. Spies' cause was helped when pole sitter Marco Simoncelli's nightmare run of race-day incidents continued as he highsided at the fourth turn - while passing Jorge Lorenzo for second place at the hairpin taking a furious Lorenzo down with him.

C.O.G.S: make an early ‘ish’ start TeamSky name The early start was made by all to beat the summer heat and we teed off at 10.00hrs, at the repaired Santa Clara following the storm damage some weeks ago. The course was in good condition as always and the scores reflected that. I spoke to the starter who told me about the damage that had been caused by that Wednesday storm, and that was very apparent when you went around the course. The river area and the surrounding areas have been severely damaged - it has to be seen to comprehend. They had one metre of mud on the 18th green, which had to be removed by hand and now you would never know. Well done to all the staff for their hard work in presenting the course in

such good condition. Once again thanks must go to Mike, Andrea and all the staff at The Bistro for the much appreciated snacks and a warm welcome and Andy and Dave for all their help as always. Results for the day: Nearest the pin: Ian Thorne, Nearest the pin in two: Charles Randell and the longest drive: Chris Spoakes. The winning team any two from four was Dell Allwood, Chris Spoakes, John Bamber and Mark Willman with 83 points. In

the main competition of the day third place with 31 points on countback, went to Andy Macfarlane, in second place with 33 points on count back Gerry Owens and in first place with 33 points also on

Baa!

count back Chris Spoakes. Terry Birtles nearest the pin competition results are as follows: Geoff Heading, Andy Macfarlane and

‘Joking’. Joint winners with 10 points were, John Bamber and Mark Willman. Our next outing is on July 16th at Santana Golf tee off time is at 10.00hrs, all details on our board in The Bistro. Myself and all the members of C.O.G.S would like to wish Martin Randall all the success on the opening this Thursday of Ye Ole Butchery In Alhaurin El Grande, and hope he makes plenty of money so he can buy me a drink for this mention free of charge.

The recent successful Caritas Charity Golf Tournament at La Cala was a clear demonstration that ‘charity begins at home’.

Over 60 golfers played on the Campo America golf course. The overall winner of the tournament was Javier Cuevas Quero with an incredible 46 points playing off a 20 handicap. Javier also qualified for the National final of the World Golfers Championship which is being held at La Cala on August 27th and 28th. The prize giving ceremony was attended by

Cortés, along with the new mayor of Mijas Ángel Nozal. Also present were Jose Navas, leisure director of La Cala Resort, Juan Jose Arias, the tournament coordinator and Francisco Sepulveda, President of the association of Santa Teresa de Jesus.

Their partnership lasted 13 overs but such was the tightness of the bowling they were able to score only 45 runs in that time. Mr Extras with 22 was the only other double figure. Sidhu made an important contribution as Tanveer’s spell came to an end. In the space of three overs he took a running catch at backward square leg to dismiss Ashan, almost exactly repeated the feat, but with added juggling, to see the back of Amir then

came on to bowl Sameer. Shaheed’s two spells for figures of 7 overs 4 for 21 were impressive too. With three overs left Combined Colleges were all out for 110, which looked a long way short of a competitive total. Needing to score at around 3½ an over Fuengirola were not content to poke and prod but went for the jugular. After eight overs Fuengirola were nearly half way home, having 52 runs on the board without loss. By the time Brian trapped Rai LBW with the score on 93 everyone had accepted the inevitable. Next over Combined

Colleges brought on an occasional bowler (common decency demands anonymity be maintained at this point) only to see Shaheed (yes, he of the 4 for 21) smite mighty consecutive sixes off the first three balls to bring the game to a merciful end. Combined Colleges’ total had proved to be a long way short indeed. The question is - does a six wicket victory for Fuengirola with 14 out of 35 overs remaining count as a rout? The Man of the Match award can only go to a Fuengirola player. For his whole hearted fielding and bowling which, while taking

Murray demolishes Gasquet in straight sets to reach quarters Frenchman Richard Gasquet was given a right royal thrashing on Monday as Andy Murray, watched by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, eased through to the quarter finals for the fourth time, 7-6(7-3) 6-3 6-2 Murray produced another sumptuous performance to prove there is no reason why he cannot lift the Wimbledon trophy in 2011. First onto the Centre Court on Monday, Murray beat Frenchman Richard Gasquet in straight sets to the satisfaction of the mainly home crowd. If he continues this form, there isn’t a player out there who won’t be very apprehensive in playing Murray. Whether Nadal, Federer or Djokovic, Murray will be looking forward to pitting his exceptional grass form against any of them. Defending

surprise of the men’s tournament, the 18-yearold Australian qualifier Bernard Tomic. Tomic’s latest victim was Xavier Malisse, an unseeded 30year-old Belgian who reached the semi-finals here in 2002. It was a wild Monday for the women at Wimbledon, with the Williams sisters and No. 1-ranked Caroline Wozniacki losing in the fourth round. In the top half of the draw, Maria Sharapova, the only former Wimbledon champion still in contention, will face Cibulkova, a big-swinging Slovak seeded 24th, who is nicknamed the Pocket Rocket for the baseline power she generates despite her diminutive size (5 feet 3 inches). Also in the top half, the ninth-seeded Bartoli will face Sabine Lisicki, a hugeserving, unseeded German who required a wild card to play.

Sergio Garcia loses out in play-off Pablo Larrazabal beat Sergio Garcia in a dramatic play-off to win the International Open in Munich. It took five extra holes until Garcia threeputted to hand the title to Larrazabal. The Spaniards had traded the lead throughout the final day, but Garcia's birdie on the 18th tied the pair at 16 under. Garcia has been without a tournament win since November 2008 and has slumped to 64th in the world rankings. But the former world number two has at least qualified for next month's Open Championship thanks to this result. A seventh place finish at the US Open last week inspired hopes of a return to form, and his display in this tournament has seen that momentum continue.

England go through at the fIfa U-17 World Cup in Mexico. England qualified as winners of Group C in Pachuca, playing a patient and controlled brand of football that brought them to the top of the section. Two wins and a draw were enough to see the team, led by Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling and creator Nick Powell, edge Uruguay on points. Their win over La Celeste in the last contest of the group settled any doubt and the two passed through to the knockout stages.
