WORLD NEWS - 11th HOUR TALKS EXPECTED TO FAIL

All eyes on Athens as fears of euro exit grow Greece continued to dominate the headlines on Tuesday even as hope sprang eternal ahead of the meeting between newly inaugurated French President François Hollande and German chancellor Angela Merkel, who is still swallowing the bitter pill of her party's defeat in a regional election on Sunday. Tuesday's talks in Athens came in the wake of Monday's discussions between the leaders of the centre-right New Democracy, Pasok and moderate Democratic Left parties which ended in failure after just an hour. The left-wing Syriza bloc – the second largest in parliament – did not attend Monday's talks, saying it would not join any coalition making further cuts. It rejects the terms of the latest €130 billion EU/IMF bailout, which demands more austerity. Meanwhile, Democratic Left, which could have

used its handful of seats to cement a majority government, instead insisted it will not join any coalition which does include Syriza. But all four attended Tuesday's talks, as did the Greek Independent party – meaning only the Communists (KKE) and far-right Golden Dawn were absent. As Thursday's deadline looms, the chances of success at this 11th hour are slim. If the talks fail, as expected, it would mean fresh elections which polls indicate could be won by a Syriza-led government intent on turning its back on a bailout. This would

probably lead Greece to default on its debt and hasten its departure from the euro. The political turmoil has spooked markets around the world. Heavy losses in Europe and the US on Monday were followed by falls in Asia on Tuesday morning. However there was some relief for the European markets on Tuesday following the news that the eurozone managed to avoid recession, recording zero growth in the first three months of the year. The worst scenario – of Greece leaving the euro –

could unravel the whole ideological framework which governs monetary union. This scenario was rejected as "nonsense" by the chairman of the eurozone group, Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, who said on Monday "I don't envisage, not even for one second, Greece leaving."

As promised last week, you can see the rest of the winners from last week’s PAd dog show on page 14. These are pictures of the winners that were mostly brought in by their owners and were lucky enough to have wonderful homes with people who care about them. However, there were some exceptionally beautiful PAd dogs there that were still looking for homes of their own including Kiara that you had a picture of last week. There was also a standard Yorkie who had just three legs. Most people will just walk by this little dog but, he wasn’t phased at all by having one of his legs missing and was a real little character so, if you can give a home to one of the PAd dogs, do pop along to the shelter and choose one that suits your particular lifestyle. There is everything from puppies to older dogs, huge to tiny little things, in fact every type you could possibly want so call lisa on 658 351 642 to arrange a visit and find out more. So.... we’ve gone from snow on the mountains a week-and-a-half ago to downright scorchio! And if you’re wondering where “Scorchio” comes from, it was a rather large chaplet who was a TV weatherman in Greece a few years back. It was so hot all the time that he just slapped huge magnetic suns all over the country “Scorchio! shouting Scorchio!” with each new one that hit the map. Well, it used to amuse the knickers off me anyway!

Visitors to Lorca this week could be forgiven for thinking that the earthquake that devastated the town, killing nine and injuring more than 300, had happened only recently, and not on May 11th last year. There are empty spaces where 250 apartment blocks once stood, and many of those still standing are propped up by scaffolding. Saturnina Martínez, the councillor in charge of coordinating the reconstruction, said an assessment of the full extent of the damage revealed that more buildings than were originally believed have been damaged. She admitted that only three permits to build apartment blocks have been issued in

Lorca after the earthquake

the past year, as well as 30 for individual houses. But work has yet to begin as residents cope with the nightmare of getting permission from the bureaucrats to repair their homes. Out of the original residents of 90,000, 7,000 are still homeless and some 10,000 have moved away. Two schools have been knocked down, 11 others are under repair. And the town's two hospitals are still not functioning properly. Local shopkeepers are facing bankruptcy, with some 10 per cent of stores closed permanently.

Most of the city's historic buildings suffered serious damage and are closed, as are all but one of Lorca's 16 churches. As a result, a once-thriving tourist trade has been reduced to a trickle. Inmaculada García, who heads the commission set up by the government in Madrid to oversee reconstruction after the disaster, told reporters: "We have been working very hard and we have achieved a lot, but I'm sure that we could have done a lot more than we have and we could have done it more quickly."

The latest opinion poll carried out by Metroscopia for El Pais newspaper shows that Spaniards criticise both the government and the opposition for the current economic crisis, and feel that the Socialist government has to take the larger share for not implementing austerity measures when it should have. That said, they believe an emergency pact between the government and the Socialist Party is the only solution to the current economic situation. Paradoxically, while Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's popularity has dropped, the survey showed that if there were

an election today, the Partido Popular would win it with a comfortable majority. However, the real villains are the banks. A majority of those questioned in the survey were strongly against any government help for the banks and a large number would be in favour of their nationalisation.

Getting tougher on the banks The government announced last Friday that it will force the banks to take on an extra €30 billion of capital to cushion themselves against loans going bad. Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria told reporters at her regular Friday press conference that the banks will have to raise the

money or borrow it from the government at an annual interest rate of about 10 per cent. She said the government is determined to take the necessary measures to restore credibility and trust in the financial system.

of these toxic loans into separate companies. The government also

intends to liberalise property rental rules to make it easier for the

banks to sell their portfolios of property debt.

Earlier in the week, the government partially nationalised Bankia, and has already forced banks to make provisions of €54 billion to cover bad loans, most of them related to the collapse of the housing boom which left many small lenders holding mortgages they may not be able repay. Under the new regulations, the banks will also be forced to put some

Thousands of people started to congregate in the main squares in the country’s cities and towns on Saturday in the lead-up to the first anniversary of the M-15 movement on Tuesday. Madrid's Puerta del Sol square continued to be the heart of the movement. Authorities have permitted protesters to use the square for a fixed number of hours each day, and Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria said the government would ensure those hours were respected. A few hundred protesters who defied the curfew were cleared out by police in the early hours of Sunday and Monday and a few arrests were made. The square is a focal point for the movement of so-called "indignants", which erupted in response to

In the final quarter of 2011, the eurozone shrank by 0.3%, and many analysts were expecting further contraction but the stronger-than-expected performance was in large part due to a growth of 0.5% in the German economy.

country's economic growth was due to a rise in exports and higher domestic consumption. Spain's economy shrank by 0.3% in the first quarter of this year, the French economy recorded zero growth in the same period while the Italian economy contracted by 0.8%. ` Some analysts believe that the first quarter may prove something of a temporary respite as many eurozone economies continue to struggle amid weak demand, high unemployment and dramatic cutbacks.

Final victory in Penal code Urdangarin’s Odyssey case changes to fight father dies corruption

Spain’s long legal battle with Odyssey Marine Exploration over the 500,000 silver and gold coins recovered from the Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes which was sunk by the British navy off the coast of Portugal in 1804 is finally over. On Monday, the US Supreme Court rejected a petition by the Tampa, Floridabased shipwreck experts to review the case, which included petitions by the Peruvian government and some of the descendants of the ship’s passengers, who said they were the rightful owners of the treasure. Odyssey had surreptitiously taken the coins to Florida in early 2007 and the ownership battle has been waging since then. Spanish military cargo planes brought the coins

The government announced last Friday that it intends to introduce stiffer penalties for tax evaders and Social Security cheats, to lower the amounts of money involved before the offence is considered a crime and raise maximum sentences from two years to six.

back to Madrid in February this year after the Supreme Court refused to stop the transfer while it was considering the appeal. The Culture Ministry has said the coins and other artefacts will be displayed at different museums around the country. Spain’s lawyer, James Goold, said on Monday: “All the team is very pleased by the decision, which makes our victory absolutely final.”

The Cabinet will send a bill to Congress to change the Penal Code and create a new type of crime involving tax fraud on amounts over €600,000, aimed at organised crime groups or people who hide their money in offshore accounts to avoid paying tax. The government also wants to raise the statute of limitations for tax fraud cases from five years to 10 years to help fight public corruption. This will avoid situations as in the so-

Infanta Cristina , Urdangarin and their children attend the funeral Cayman National Bank

called Gürtel kickbacks-forcontracts scandal, in which prosecutors could not file charges against some Partido Popular (PP) officials because the statute of limitations had run out. Government prosecutors are currently trying to retrieve some €6 billion from tax fraud cases.

The Infanta Cristina and her four children made a rare visit to Spain last week to attend her father-inlaw’s funeral last Saturday. Juan Maria Urdangarin died of a cerebral haemorrhage last Thursday. He was 79. His son, who is currently facing charges of embezzlement, in Palma de Mallorca, travelled to Vitoria in the Basque Country last

Tuesday when his father’s health worsened. Queen Sofia and the Infanta Elena went to Vitoria on Friday to offer their condolences to the family but did not stay for the funeral. In addition to family members and friends, the funeral was attended by representatives of the Basque Nationalist Party (BNV), to which Sr Urdangarin belonged.

Fifty years go uncelebrated The uproar over the King’s recent visit to Botswana to hunt elephants was forced out of the headlines by a bigger bombshell last week – King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia had no plans to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on May 14th either in private or in public. This only added fire to the rumours that have been abounding since the illfated elephant hunt that the King is romantically involved with a German baroness he met five years ago. The first hint of any trouble in the Royal marriage was when Queen Sofia did not rush back from Athens to be at her husband’s side when he was brought home from Botswana with a displaced hip after tripping on the stairs at the hunting lodge. She went straight to the Madrid Clinic from the airport but only stayed half an hour. She returned the following day for a threehour visit, which one newspaper described as the first time the Royal couple had been alone for so long. The decision not to celebrate their 50th anniversary only revived speculation that theirs had been an arranged marriage

all along. When Franco decided he needed to find a princess for his successor, he dismissed Princess Sofia of Greece because she was not a Catholic. However, Queen Federica was set on finding her eldest daughter a husband who would one day sit on a throne and the most likely candidate was Prince Juan Carlos who was tipped to restore the monarchy in Spain after Franco’s death. That would only become official in 1969 so Queen Federica was taking a chance when she organised a cruise in 1954 for all the young European Royals, which included Prince Juan Carlos. The two apparently did not hit it off until 1961, however, when Prince Juan Carlos and his family holidayed in Corfu in 1961 at the invitation of the Greek royal family. The Prince’s letters to his

1962

friends at the time seemed to indicate that he had actually fallen in love with Sofia and that the marriage had not been arranged by his scheming soon-to-be mother-in-law. And there seemed to be no doubt that she was head over heels in love with him. After much wrangling between the two families over the religious ceremony, the couple were married in Athens on May 14th, 1962, first in the Roman Catholic cathedral from whence they went

straight to the Orthodox Greek Cathedral to repeat their vows there. Sofia formally became a Catholic after the marriage. Rumours of the King’s dalliances have abounded since then but the Spanish media have discreetly avoided going into any great detail. Despite the rumours, the couple seemed perfectly happy – some say because Sofia was determined that her son would one day sit on the throne of Spain. The King himself has always said

Present Day

that his wife has been the best adviser he could have had. The scandal caused by the King’s hunting trip – although it’s not known if he actually did kill an elephant this time – seems to have encouraged the Spanish media to take the gloves off and it is possible that the country will find out all about this latest rumoured romance in the not-too-distant future. Sources close to the Royal family claim the King

has been devastated by the furore over his trip, which came hard on the heels of the scandal involving his son-in-law, and is looking for ways to get back his popularity. Polls show that a majority have forgiven the King but most have said he chose the wrong time to indulge in a pastime that only the very wealthy can afford. Meanwhile, the popularity ratings of the Queen, Crown Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia have risen.

Kidnap in Pakistan was 'plotted in Spain' A court on Monday heard how a married couple planned the kidnapping of a five year-old UK boy in Pakistan from their home in Tarragona. Sahil Saeed, of Oldham, was snatched during a robbery on March 4th, 2010, while he was visiting his grandmother's home in the Punjab region. He was released 12 days later after his family paid a ransom of £110,000. Zahid Saleem and Muhammad Sageiz, from Pakistan and Saleem’s wife

Gianina Monica Ms Neruja, from Romania, were living in Tarragona before their arrests. They have been in custody awaiting trial since being arrested on 16th March 2010. Appearing in the Tarragona court, they denied charges of kidnap, conspiracy, robbery and trespass as well as eight charges of unlawful arrest in connection with the case.

Prosecutor Maria Jose Osuna said that the three, together with at least four other people of Pakistani origin, designed, organised and carried out the kidnapping of the British minor Sahil Saeed. They were betrayed by a phone call to the boy’s uncle which was traced to a phone box in Constanti, near Tarragona on the afternoon

Hollande sworn in as president Franςois Hollande was sworn in as president at an inauguration ceremony at the Elysee Palace with outgoing President Nicolas Sarkozy. After laying a wreath at the Arc de Triomphe, travelling in an open-top car down the Champs-Elysees and naming his cabinet, he set off to Germany to have dinner with Chancellor Angela Merkel. The visit underscores the importance of the German-French relationship in Europe amid the continuing political vacuum in Greece and predictions that it may be forced out of the euro,

stoking fears that caused the single currency to tumble in trading on Monday. Mrs Merkel openly supported Mr Sarkozy in the election battle and on Monday Mr Hollande admitted during a television interview on Monday that "we don't think the same on everything". He has criticised the German-led focus on austerity as the way out of

the European economic crisis. As the eurozone's two biggest economies and biggest contributors to its bailout funds, Germany and France are key decision makers over the strategy supposed to pull Europe out of crisis. After his German trip, Mr Hollande will hold his first cabinet meeting on Thursday followed by a visit to Washington to meet US President Barack Obama.

elections due next year, even though political analysts have said many voters rejected Mrs Merkel's tough line on fiscal discipline as a cure for state debt on Sunday and predict that the trend will continue.

Reforms to allowances Six children People receiving the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) could lose out under planned reforms to slash the cost of such benefits by £2.2 billion while implementing the new Personal Independence Payment.

It has been reported that some ex-service personnel who have lost limbs fighting for the UK could be among those affected but Works and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said of the new system: “It’s not like incapacity benefit, it’s not

Not, 'You have lost a limb'." He told The Daily Telegraph that there had been a 30% rise in the number of claimants over recent years and around two million claimants would be reassessed in the next four years. The annual cost of benefits at the moment reaches almost £13 billion and in the future only those considered to be in need of support would qualify. Ministers are consulting on the new eligibility criteria for the disability benefit system, which will be announced in the autumn.

die in arson attack

A dramatic appeal has been launched by Derby police for any information in connection with the house fire that killed six children on Friday. Jade Philpott 10, John 9, Jack 7, Jessie 6, and fiveyear-old Jaydon all died when the fire swept through their home in Allenton, Derby. The children were asleep upstairs. Their 13-year-old brother Duwayne was seriously burned in the fire and died in hospital after his parents took the decision to switch off his life support machine on Sunday evening. A 38-year-old man and 28-year-old woman had been arrested on suspicion of murder but were released without charge on Saturday. Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cotterill thanked those that had already come forward but expressed surprise that there were so few of them, adding that he strongly suspected that there is

someone who knows a lot more than they are telling. Their father, Mick Philpott battled the flames trying to save them. In 2007 he hit the headlines after demanding a larger council house to share with his wife, Maired, girlfriend, Lisa, and their 17 children. A resident of the estate, Bobby Sutherland said he felt inspired to create the charity Catch Me When I Fall and they have received cash donations from fellow residents to help pay for the funerals of the children. Father Alan Burbridge from St George’s Roman Church Catholic described Mr. Philpott as “a good, caring, family man. He looked after his children well, he was devoted to his children even though he’d got so many.” A service was held in the church on Saturday in memory of the children.

Brit or scot? ancient documents have revealed the birthplace of Jeremy Clarkson, doncaster in Yorkshire, was signed over to Scotland in a treaty 900 years ago as part of the Treaty of durham after King david successfully stormed large areas of northern England. It remained in Scottish hands for 21 years until Henry II appeared to reclaim the town under English rule in 1157. But experts have now found an official pact wasn't ever signed – meaning strictly speaking the South Yorkshire town still belongs to the Scots. Charles Kelham, who discovered the oversight, said: "King david coins dating from that time have been found in doncaster, so the links are there." UK

The people of Melksham, a small town in Wiltshire are fed up to the back teeth with constantly having to put up with delays getting anywhere due to roadworks so one local card has changed – just ever so slightly – one of the roadworks signs in the area with the labourer sitting on a pile of debris having a cup of tea and a smoke. Lib Dem councillor Jon Hubbard said: "Melksham has had a lot of road works taking place and there has been a lot of annoyance at how long it is taking. It doesn’t come across as a shock that someone has done this, it is a real problem in the town with roadworks seemingly taking forever. I’ve seen a

lot of workers sitting around and I’ve raised the issue. Recently there was a case when workers were redoing a road and there were terrible problems. Lanes were closed but there was no one doing any work. Residents certainly haven’t been given the appearance of anyone being hard at work." Maybe this will get the local roadworkers off their rear ends and inspire them to get the job done at last!

Boating tragedy leaves two dead Julian Mynott, 42, and his three-year-old son Freddie died after their rowing boat overturned on the River Avon on Saturday afternoon at around 5.30pm and went over a three-metre-high weir on a stretch of the river at Barford in Warwickshire. Two other children were pulled from the water alive by a local resident and a police officer shortly after the accident happened. One of the surviving children had suffered a cardiac arrest and was given CPR. The child remains seriously ill in Warwick Hospital. The second child is described as conscious but poorly. All three children had been spotted earlier wearing life jackets.

victims who died were pulled from the water some hours later. One local resident, Ali Bonner-Evans described the river level as “very high at the moment and the current is very fast. I think the boat just got to the weir and the boat just went straight over it, and there could have been nothing they could have done to stop that happening.” She added: “Everybody is devastated. This is not the kind of thing you expect to happen on a sunny Saturday afternoon in a small Warwickshire village.” Air and land ambulances, the Hazardous Area Response Team and a number of paramedic officers attended the scene.

MoD black hole plugged According to Defence Secretary Phillip Hammond the black hole of £38 billion in the MoD budget has been plugged and they are out of debt for the first time in its history.

Nicknamed "Granny Nav", the technology is being developed as part of a £12 million programme by the UK's Research Council to help the elderly better navigate while driving.

Huge cuts and compulsory redundancies within the armed forces, equipment cuts the details of which have been described as a “grand announcement” yet to be released, plus the early retirement of HMS Ark Royal and the selling off of the whole of the UK’s Harrier Jump Jet fleet to America has finally balanced the books.

The core programme has a fully funded budget of £152bn over 10 years. The overall defence budget over

However, the Royal Navy and the RAF will have lost five thousand jobs each by 2015, the army will have seven thousand less soldiers and the Ministry of Defence will have shed 25 thousand jobs. There is still another wave of redundancies to be implemented which may mean that some famous regiments will no longer exist having been amalgamated with others. Mr Hammond told the Sunday Times: "We hugely value the regimental system, and nobody, as far as I know, is suggesting dismantling it." Mr Hammond said the U-turn on the type of plane to be bought for the Royal Navy's new aircraft carrier, which will result in a substantial saving, was "the last piece of the jigsaw. In terms of reducing the size of the civil service, the army and the air force, we shouldn't have to do any more over and above what we've already announced," he said.

“For many older people, particularly those living alone or in rural areas, driving is essential for maintaining their independence, giving them the freedom to get out and about without having to rely on others," Professor Phil Blythe who led the research said in a press statement, "but we all have to accept that as we get older our reactions slow down and this often results in people avoiding any potentially challenging driving conditions and losing confidence in their driving skills. The result is that people stop driving before they really need to.” Blythe said his research team has been looking at ways to keep people driving safely for longer to help boost independence amongst the elderly and keep them socially connected. Giving up driving is one of the key reasons for a fall in health and well-being

To figure out the best ways to help keep older people on the road, the Intelligent Transport team at Newcastle University converted an electric car into a mobile laboratory called DriveLAB. The car was decked out with tracking systems, eyemotion detectors and bio-monitors to help researchers understand the challenges faced by older drivers as well as night vision systems and intelligent speed technology. Edmund King, AA president said: "The car is a lifeline for many older people as it helps keep them mobile, independent and connected to friends and family. The pioneering work of DriveLAB will help with technological solutions to ensure that older drivers stay safer behind the wheel." The research will be presented at an Aging, Mobility and Quality of Life conference in Michigan in June.

Guardia asked to help Former Casares end illegal building mayor freed on bail Mijas town council has asked the Guardia Civil for help in controlling and inspecting building works in the municipality, many of which are illegal. The council has stopped work on 50 illegal constructions in the past month alone.

Town planning councillor Manuel Navarro said the new illegal constructions are complicating the process under way to regularise the situation of illegal houses which were built more than four years ago. He said the council was not willing to tolerate people building without a

licence, who face fines of between 600 and 10 per cent of the total amount spent on the construction. They also have to foot the demolition costs.

Wanted Briton arrested The Guardia Civil arrested a 34-year-old Briton in Manilva last Friday, wanted in the UK in connection with the kidnapping of a 22-year-old man and drug trafficking in Newcastleunder-Lyme. The Spanish authorities said he fled the

country last year when he found out the British police were after him. He had been living under a false name in Manilva, and only left his home at night. He finally went out during the

daytime last week to buy something at a Chinese shop and the Guardia, who had been following him for some time, were able to arrest him. They said the woman he was living with did not know his true identity.

Asked to work for half pay Estepona town council has sent a letter to all its workers asking them if they would be willing to work part time for just half their salaries. Those older than 63

have been asked if they would be willing to take early retirement. This would save the council €6 million, which it needs to be able to start paying off the €60 million it owes the government in Madrid.

If the council cannot start paying the debt, the central government can step in to administer its finances in accordance with the recently implemented “Adjustment Plan”.

The Guardia Civil detained former Casares mayor Juan Sánchez, his wife, a lawyer and a woman with alleged lings to organised crime after searching the town hall and several private homes, as well as offices in Marbella and Estepona, in an investigation into money laundering that began in 2010. After being questioned, the former mayor left by the back door of the court in Estepona at 2am on Tuesday morning and his wife left by the front door minutes later. The judge had released Sr Sanchez pending payment of bail of €200,000, although the prosecutor has asked for him to be jailed until the bail money was paid. The searches were carried out in connection

with urban planning irregularities committed when Sr Sanchez was mayor. He resigned the position in 2009 but stayed on as a councillor. He had been mayor from 1979 with a five year gap from 1995 to 2000 when the GIL party governed. He belongs to Izquierda Unida (IU, United Left), as does the current mayor Antonia Morera.

The Estepona court investigating the case has blocked 165 bank accounts, closed 236 offices and seized 19 vehicles. “For the moment” the authorities said on Monday, the mayor, his wife and the other two who were detained are charged with accepting bribes, money laundering and links with a criminal organisation.

Poet 'could have fled Spain' Documents have recently turned up that could explain the mystery of why Federico Garcia Lorca – a gay left-wing supporter of the Second Republic – went to visit his family in Granada just days after the Civil War broke out, instead of fleeing the country. The reason seems to have been found in a collection of papers belonging to Juan Ramirez de Lucas, a journalist and art critic who kept his relationship with Lorca a secret until his death, aged 91, in 2010. The papers have only recently come to light. Ramirez was a 19-year-old student when he met the 38-year old Lorca. They fell in love and according to Mr Ramirez’s diaries, they had talked about leaving Spain together. Lorca went to Granada to bid farewell to his family

Memo from

Voice Madrid Muriel Pilkington

Martin Delfín Writes for the English language version of

Nothing but bad news

His honourable ostrich

I

hatever this Partido Popular (PP) government plans on doing to avoid a European rescue plan doesn’t look good. It appears each day we are headed more and more towards a bailout. The Spanish banking sector is where all the bad bugs seem to be hiding. IMF officials fear that the banks have “masked” hundreds of millions in bad real estate loans that have been put on their books as good performers but are actual ly refinanced credits they know that their troubled customers will never be able to pay back. Economy Minister Luis de Guindos has already asked the European Central Bank (ECB) for help to conduct an independent appraisal of its private financial sector. This could only uncover more bad news for Spain because all the loans, whether already in default or not, make up 300 percent of the sector’s GDP, or some €3 billion euros in credits.

t used to be more fun writing this column when Zapatero was around – at least he gave me lots of ammunition for the occasional lighthearted piece making a mockery of him. I recall them with longing now that the headlines are just about more cuts and more marches protesting the cuts. Even the marches are dull these days. Apparently the hard core anti-system troublemakers really believe the authorities are going to go after them with all (figurative) guns blazing to make sure there are no repeat performances of the violent episodes that ended the general strike in Barcelona on March 29th.

M

ass protests since then have been less well attended – a lot of people steer clear because they fear the troublemakers – and even the May-15 (M-15) movement seems to be running out of steam if its first birthday celebrations are anything to go by.

C

ould it be that people are beginning to realise that the real problem is not the state of the economy but the corruption, both private and public, that has brought us to this pretty pass. Successive opinion polls are beginning to reflect this. More and more people are saying they’re worried about the politicians’ seeming inability to solve problems and a few are beginning to voice the thought that it’s the corruption at high local, regional and national levels which could be the cause. The real problem is – just how do you put an end to this scourge which has such deep roots in the Spanish psyche? Even the United Left (IU) – my current bête noire – is in on the act, as the recent arrest of the former mayor of Casares shows. The IU acts holier-than-youand-me but this isn’t the first case involving it in economy hanky-panky.

H

aving lived in an extremely corrupt South American country – Venezuela – for many years, I can understand the despair the average Spaniard must be feeling right now. When I arrived in Caracas in 1977, one of the most corrupt presidents – Carlos Andres Perez – was in power. It’s because of him that I’ve always been wary of former Spanish PM Felipe Gonzalez, who was always visiting his good friend in Caracas – birds of a feather flock together, and all that.

W

hen Perez and his Social Democratic party were ousted by Luis Herrera Campins and the Christian Democratic Party in the 1978 election, everyone said “well, they can’t be any worse than the last lot”. I went along with them saying the same every five years until 1998 when failed coupster and current president Hugo Chavez first ran for president. I suddenly thought “no, he can be worse than the last lot because every lot so far has been worse than the one before it”. I then started trying to dissuade all the people I knew from giving him their votes “because he’ll get rid of corruption”. I wish I had €100 for every time one of them later said to me “you were right, Muriel, I wish I hadn’t voted for him”. He’s still around, having destroyed the last vestiges of the far-from-perfect democracy that Venezuela once enjoyed and it looks as if only a fatal illness will get rid of him, seeing how his people are so good at rigging election results.

T

hey don’t rig elections here – I think – but the situation is even worse because Spaniards from time immemorial have wanted power not to do something good for their country but to enjoy all the trappings of power and end up with a healthy bank account – in the Bahamas of course. You see, it’s their God-given right. Your average Spaniard deep down believes that the laws only apply to others, not to him. They pay lip service to the law but when it comes to the crunch they trample all over it, while they criticise others for doing the same. At the same time, they want to be all things to all men yet cling on to power and the easiest way of achieving that is to throw money around as if there were no tomorrow. You’ll make a lot of people so happy they’ll love you forever and – more importantly – they’ll owe you not one but many favours.

I

t’s this anarchic cast of mind which has plunged this country into so many little civil wars and local disturbances until the 1936-39 civil war put an end to all that under the iron hand of Franco. The first couple of decades after his death were exciting – as everyone seemed to pull together to make sure the transition to democracy was a success.

U

nfortunately the old anarchy mindset seems to be resurfacing, but more on that next week.

W

team do all the talking. It is incredible how a leader of a country that is doing a tightrope-walk on the brink of a possible collapse isn’t out there telling us that everything will be okay – at least for psychological pur poses. We have come to expect a little more from our political leaders, but then again Rajoy has shown us that all he was good for was to constantly badger the previous Socialist government with contentious criticism that didn’t serve this country any good but certainly helped him get where he wanted. If this nation tanks no doubt there will be calls for early elections, and I expect these calls will come ju st before Christmas. It will be another sign that our political institutions have been weakened by this economic mess.

T

hen we have De Guindos’ not-soassuring comments on Monday when he told reporters that Spain has “done everything we needed to do from the standpoint of a new government” and “from now on, what we need is the cooperation of all of the euro zone”. What that cooperation entails doesn’t sound to be a positive approach. Spain’s risk premium already reached a new record high this wee k as investors keep on telling us that things are well out of shape. It is important to note that through it all, the Economy minister has assured reporters that no one has come out and mentioned the word bailout – at least not publicly – for now. The concerns, of course, are centred around Greece as it is no longer taboo to believe that Athens may have to exit the euro zone, which could be the Greeks’ real and only chance for survival. But there are those who are quietly fearing that a Greek pull-out will only spell disaster for the euro’s biggest member, Germany, where banks hold as much as €100 billion in Greek debt.

ext week, Iñaki Urdangarin will have to face more sour music when his former business partner-turned-bitter enemy, Diego Torres, is expected to testify before a Palma de Mallorca judge about information he says he has that demonstrates that King Juan Carlos may have intervened to help his royal sonin-law drum-up business. I say expected because there are some behind-thescenes manoeuvres being undertaken by the defence counsels for both Torres and Urdangarin to win plea deals and avoid what could be more embarrassment for the royal household. Prosecutors insist that there are no such discussions in the works and that they are prepared to go to trial. But no doubt something is cooking. If Urdangarin avoids jail time by just paying a €2 million euro fine – chicken feed by the monarchy’s standards – there are certainly going to be lots of people clamouring for greater justice and perhaps new calls to get rid of the royals.

Community News e best of the rest from last Cudeca quiz week’s PAD annual dog show, as promised! Best dog over 9 years old was won by this beautiful elegant greyhound called Selva.

Best puppy went to Lilly whose owner reckons she’ll be in the over 30kg class by next year!

Best adult small dog was Lexie who you saw last week as she also won Best In Show.

Chico won the category looking for the Best medium sized adult dog. What a cutie!

Last month, La Fishita held its first quiz night in aid of Cudeca. Guests began the evening served with drinks and Thai fishcakes, followed by a portion of delicious La Fishita fish and chips, before the quiz master, Geoff Bromige, started firing off questions to the eight teams of families and friends.

The evening went swimmingly and the event raised €460 for the charity, which La Fishita more than doubled, bringing the final donation to a grand total of €1010!

Angel won the “Best Dog of 30kg” category. Her first time in the ring and she was soooo good!

Daniella’s little dog, Ellie, won dog most like its owner – they had the same T-Shirt and shorts!

Best six legs was awarded to Labrador cross Monty who had the same ribbons as his owner.

And last but by no means least Drago won best fancy dress dog as the dragon with owner “George”!

These funds will help Cudeca to continue Giving Life to Days to people with advanced non-curable illnesses and support to their families. If you missed out this time don’t worry, La Fishita plans to hold regular quiz nights throughout the summer.

DAVID THE DOGMAN Are dogs to blame? part 2 Breed characteristics

The “friends” on their trip The Friends in Focus camera club has just returned from a highly enjoyable coach trip to the west coast of Spain where they stayed in a 4 star hotel in the beach resort of Matalascanas. The party of 33 people consisted of members and their guests who visited the lovely city of Seville en route to the hotel. From there during the

next three days they visited and photographed the famous Rio Tinto Mines and Exhibition, the fascinating walled village of Niebla, and took a very interesting jeep safari within the Parque Nacional de Donana. Further trips are planned for the future so keep an eye on what's happening by visiting their web site www.friends infocuscameraclub.com

It is difficult to determine just how much a dog's genetics determine his behaviour, just like it's hard to know how much of a person's personality is nature and how much is nurture. It's true that some breeds were bred to perform tasks that require more aggression than others. Pit bulls, for example, were bred to fight dogs and other animals for sport. Some people theorise that pit bulls' genetics make them more prone to violence than other dogs, and pit bulls have in fact

been involved in more fatal attacks than any other dog over the past 20 years. But breeds that are not bred for aggression, including Golden Retrievers, Cocker Spaniels, and Yorkshire Terriers, have been involved in fatal attacks as well. It's also true that some breeds simply have more ability to injure people than others do. Though it's no more likely to bite than a smaller dog, if it does bite, a Great Dane can do much more damage than a Maltese, for example. (Even very small breeds can be dangerous to children, however.) More next week

Charity Dinner Down’s Syndrome With a fabulous dinner lined up, plus entertainment from Gary Combes, the charity dinner in aid of animal charities PAD and El Refugio del Burrito is set to be a sell out as usual. To be held at Restaurante Taberna de Mar – “The Singing Chef” – in Calle Hernan Cortez, Fuengirola, this Saturday May 19th starting at 7.30pm you’ll need to book your tickets pretty quickly. The dinner comprises a

welcome drink followed by a starter of either prawn cocktail or melon with Serrano ham, then for your main course you can choose between pork tenderloin with a pepper sauce or grilled salmon with a hollandaise sauce. The price of the tickets is just €15 each of which €4 goes to the charities. Call the restaurant on 952 477 695, Maiken Saalby on 645 367 383, or Inga Yvon Brüning on 654 513 380 to reserve your places.

“Knit and Natter” group, Gibraltar The knit and natter group, which has been meeting on Tuesdays, 11am to 3pm, will now also meet on Thursdays, 5.30pm to 8pm, to accommodate those crafty people who can’t make day times. The group is informal, free and international, with members from Turkey, Germany, Poland, Scotland, China, England and of course Gibraltar. There is a wide range of ages and backgrounds, but a common interest creates friendly and supportive vibes. Activities include knitting, crochet, drinking tea or coffee and nattering! Much of the craft work is for charity in which case you do not pay for yarn or,

if you wish to use some for your own projects, you can purchase at a discount. Charity Work – the craftspeople make blankets and baby clothing for ‘Women in Need’ in Gibraltar, Mother Teresa’s mother and baby home in Tangier and for ‘Rifcom’. ‘Rifcom’ helps people in the Rif Mountains in Morocco – an area where erosion has had a devastating effect on farming and where villages with no road or telecommunications access are isolated and lacking medical and other provisions. Help from outside, including warm blankets and children’s clothing can be a lifeline.

16 n Advertising Features How do insurers determine what your motor insurance quote should be? As part of the recent launch of its new and improved motor insurance policy, Liberty Seguros, the leading expatriate insurance provider in Spain, has compiled an informative list of factors taken into account by insurance companies when determining insurance rates. While some are general, others are specific to the vehicle and its owner. Here are some of the general and personal factors that affect insurance rates: People Have Accidents – over 40 million accidents around the world each year. Cars are Expensive to Repair – sometimes replacement parts alone can cost about three times as much as purchasing the same car new. Medical Treatment for Accident Victims is Expensive – rising health care costs means upward trends in medical treatment costs in the event of an accident. People Steal Cars – as car theft continues to rise, so will the cost of car insurance. Some People File Fraudulent or Inflated Claims – these people believe an accident is an opportunity to make money. Your Car – The more expensive a car is to repair or replace, the more it costs to

will be replaced without any hassle. Plus, if you have a tracker device installed in your car you may be eligible to receive a sizeable discount. As Liberty Seguros works only with the best brokers, customers receive premier service with the flexibility to tailor a policy to suit their specific requirements. If you need to buy quality car insurance at an affordable price and want to deal with a reputable, secure company in your language, visit www.libertyexpatriates.es or call 902 255 258 to find the name of your nearest broker.

insure. It’s important to highlight the car’s safety features as it can help lower your car insurance quote. Your Address – Where you live and whether or not the car is kept in a garage will affect your quote. Your Driving Record – Having fewer accidents, violations or claims in your driving record will also help lower your car insurance quote and might make you eligible for a noclaims discount. The new and improved car insurance policy from Liberty Seguros means customers now get more for their money. The policy is designed for specially expatriates and some of the covers included are: 24 hour Roadside Assistance Key Loss Cover/Replacement Up to 65% No-Claims Discount Tracker Device Discount Extensive Breakdown Cover 10% Named Driver Discount Courtesy Car/taxi No matter what time of day your car breaks down or if you lose your keys, “don’t panic” as the new ad campaign denotes. Liberty Seguros will be there to help. A courtesy car or taxi will be provided to keep you moving if your car is being repaired and if your keys get lost they

Well, maybe you’ve just arrived in Spain and don’t know the systems or what you need to get done to make yourself legal here or, maybe, you’ve been here for years but have found the routes through all the bureaucracy impossible to work through so you ignore what you really do need to do and hope there’ll be no consequences. Sounds familiar? We’ve all received letters from the electric and telephone companies that we don’t understand. Then there are the ones from the council or the tax or IVA people. They’re, of course, in Spanish but they look like you’re in trouble about something and you have absolutely no idea what it is so. So what do you do? We all react in one of three ways: 1. We know someone who speaks enough Spanish to try and translate it for us. Now you know what it says but do you know what you have to do about it? 2. We take it to a lawyer that will cost us a fortune to find out what it’s about. 3. We put it in a drawer and hope it will go away! The problem with two of the above is that you are still stressed out about it all and, no, it isn’t going to go away and now, maybe, you really are in trouble! It’s simply the same as in the UK. If you know the systems and speak the language there’s rarely a problem if things are dealt with properly. For instance, if you got a letter from BT, you’d phone them and sort it. Here, it’s in Spanish, they don’t speak English apart from if you hang on for around half an hour waiting for the person they say speaks English and then – guess what? – they don’t understand what you’re on about. We all know it’s a pain but we have chosen to live here and this is what we have to put up with if we’re not fluent in the language. On the other hand, even if you’ve done all the language courses available and are pretty fluent, do you know who to go and speak to and which hoops you have to jump through or work round to get to the right people who can sort it all out. Now, that’s where we come in. We have over 45 years experience in dealing with everything from Telefonica to Sevillana Endesa to the water people, from importing cars from abroad and re-registering them to checking that there’s no charges outstanding against them before you even buy them. We can help you with translations to do with hospitals, town halls, police etc., and we can even help you with getting your kids into school. Want to make sure your house is legal and if not, make it so? Come to us. Want to purchase a property and make sure there are no outstanding bills on it? Come to us. We can help you with practically anything you can think of and, if we can’t, we can refer you to a trustworthy expert in whatever field you need that can. So, when it looks like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel, come to us and we’ll turn the torch on for you! Call The News Help Desk: Duncan Burrell 607 590 977, Abigail Tyler on 654 854 668 or 952 454 491 at The News Help Desk Office for an appointment. The help desk is at the offices of The News, 1st Floor, Local 6, Sierra Chica, Coin. We’re opposite the La Trocha Commercial Centre on the Coin to Cartama Road (A355 km1)

In a secret world, a family's code of honour is under threat and an ancient way of life is knocked off its axis by one boy's act of grace ...

While the Marx brothers made many movies, “A Night at the Opera” is their first one without Zeppo, and many Marx brothers fans claim that the films they made without Zeppo were not as good. Personally, I think “A Night at the Opera” was by far their best, sorry Zeppo, and though many people do not agree with my articles, the fact is that “A Night at the Opera” was the Marx brothers’ biggest grossing movie.

Claypool (Margaret Dumont) into high society – and romancing her to get her money. He figures opera is the best way and gets involved with Chico, Harpo and rising opera singers Rosa Castaldi (Kitty Carlisle) and Ricardo Baroni (Allan Jones).The scenes that I loved in this movie as a kid, I still love today, as if I was watching it for the very first time. o be honest, I am not a Thumour, great fan of slapstick but the Marx

brothers fast paced script is hilarious – they were so ahead of their time. llan Jones sings some A great memorable numbers. “Alone” became a massive hit after the film was released and I really enjoyed “Cosi Cosa” – it’s not really the song that much that I enjoyed, but how all the Italian immigrants are travelling to the US in full traditional costume. After Jones sings “Cosi Cosa”, Chico gets on the piano and gives one of the most memorable piano solos ever. Chico makes shooting the keys look easy, I get mesmerized by his fingers when he’s playing, his fingers look like rubber, it’s quite amazing. Of course, no Marx film would be complete without Harpo’s harp number, but before I get to that, Harpo was quite the pianist, I know he always plays the clown, but lots of time at concerts Harpo would stand in for Chico, and without the blond wig, you couldn’t really tell them apart. Now, back to the movie – there is a shot of Harpo just before he starts to play the harp, he has his arm around it and looks up, as if he is in a church, there is this look of worship and adoration on his face, you can tell just how much he loves the harp – every time I watch that scene it makes me want to learn how to play! nother brilliant scene is A when Harpo ends up running up the scenery during the opera, and if this scene was not amazing enough, Harpo did his own stunts and he was 47 when they made this film. All in all the Marx brothers were geniuses and “A Night at the Opera” is one of their best. This is a must have for any movie enthusiast!

Although some things have been tedious lately your attention to detail and the finer things in life are starting to pay off, it has been the careful follow ups that have helped to secure some footing. Some of the dust is starting to settle and life may feel as if it is a little less rocky. There could be a feeling of certainty arising within key relationships and you may feel that you are committed now for the long haul. It has been a battle but one worth fighting for. There is the potential to achieve great progress this week or by the same token you may opt to take a break, whichever, is the most pressing. A new set of rules are waiting to be actioned by you as you take charge of your life and if you use this window to negotiate sensitive communications you can tailor the outcome to suit your needs. A problem could be solved that will open the financial flood gates at long last. Your patience is going to pay dividends this week as you stay rooted to your vision of your ultimate future. Even though life is far from perfect, this week gives you a break and the universe helps you in your personal pursuits, granting you some justice when it really counts. Headaches become a thing of the past as your mind strengthens and you become full of fierce focus and determination in a certain arduous process. You are full of feeling and no one can quite understand how you inwardly function as there are no words that can describe the way you feel about certain things. Others are just not wired in the same way. A more stable emotional base is on the cards as Saturn and Venus connect offering a more solid and earthy base for you to spring from. From this new found inner strength you can put bottom lines in place allowing you to feel more comfortable with your lot. The worst part of this week is having to be the one to deliver the news, on the other hand the reward comes with the respect you gain from walking the one road others fear to tread. Just remember that no matter what life throws at you, we are never given more than we can handle and your consistency and persistence is going to produce results in all the profitable areas. Networking with like minded individuals brings content and satisfaction. You are emerging from the dust like a warrior becoming full of power and energy after a long hard battle. There is hope again resurfacing as you move into a different gear, you are stepping up to the mark and your vision is widening. This week you deliver some communication to another that has been a long time coming but you do it with courage and care. This is no time to take a back seat but to shine brightly where others can see you.

At long last your time has come. Someone finally puts their money where their mouth is and helps you find a way of communicating the right message that will move mountains. All may not play out perfectly but the signs will be there and it will certainly come to fruition by the first week of June. Your faith in people is September 23rd - restored as someone steps in and helps out. Look out for financial bargains as you October 22nd have a keen eye at the moment.

October 23rd November 21st

This week you get a load off your chest, freeing you from a mass of unwanted baggage. It is essential that you consider all parties’ feelings as well as your own in the confrontation, noting that a simple give and take keeps the peace all around. Your personal needs when looked after give you the power to be of service to others, but until then, you scrabble around in the dark searching for what you need. A weight lifts and you feel a sense of freedom. So much in life lately has kept you in the moment and this is a place in which you

SAGITTARIUS thrive, it is quite healthy for you in order to regain proper perspective. There will be no getting ahead of yourself now as you will be humbled and mindful and in ways methodical about your current reality and you will find as you carefully take care of business a multitude of rewards ensue. You connect effortlessly to like November 22nd minded others and they prove to be anchors of support during these st December 21 unpredictable times.

CAPRICORN It has been a long hard slog and even though you have been tired you have

pressed on and somehow amidst all the sleepless nights and stressful days you look stronger and more impressive for having stuck in there. This week you prove your strength to those that mean the world to you, you are hungry December 22nd - for validation and recognition right now and this is fed, bottled and stored for January 19th the future.

What goes up must come down, it is all about the law of cause and effect that suggests that what we put out there really does come back to us. You will reach dry shores this week and an old restlessness fades away leaving you feeling at ease, a feeling that perhaps you have forgotten you can experience. Keep going with that creative endeavour, it will pay dividends and allow you shine in more ways than one.

Recent months have all been about clearing the closets and sweeping away toxic connections with those who are not benefitting the process that your soul is undertaking. There has been some tough love necessary along the way and if you have not found the courage yet to deliver or express what you must, this week is your week. Say what you need to say and make no apologies for it, you need to be direct and deliberate in your communications, speak up Pisces.

Only one in five eats five a day Just one in five Britons eats the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, a poll for World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has found. The Department of Health first launched its five-a-day campaign nine years ago but the WCRF’s survey of more than 2,000 UK adults showed people still find it too difficult to achieve that goal.

Here are some pointers, which apply to people in their 50s and over but should not be ignored by those in their 30s and 40s. lGet lutein for clarity. The world can get blurry for a lot of older people. The experts’ advice is to up lutein intake during middle age to save your eyes from age-related macular degeneration or cataracts. Studies have also shown that the nutrient, which is related to beta-carotene and vitamin A, may also help fend off cognitive decline. To do this, eat more green, leafy vegetables like spinach and

broccoli, fruits like grapes and oranges, and egg yolks. lFibre intake is vital for normal bowel function and may lower the risk of gastrointestinal inflammation. It can also lower cholesterol and blunt the rise in blood sugar that occurs after eating. Prunes are a good source of fibre but it’s also present in vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains. lLimit saturated fat. Most of the fat in an older person's diet should be good fats, such as polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat, which come from foods

like soybean and canola oil. These oils can also be a good source of vitamins E and K. Low-fat dairy products, for example, are rich in nutrients such as protein and calcium without adding unnecessary fat or calories found in fullfat dairy.

To mark its awareness day, "Fruity Friday", being held on May 18th as part of Cancer Prevention Week, the charity is urging people to eat "just one more portion" for a healthier diet, which would increase cancer protection.

lCut out unhealthy carbs by limiting foods high in sugar. As we grow older we need to keep a healthy weight, rest the pancreas (the insulin-pumping organ whose functioning goes awry in diabetes), and maximize the intake of healthy nutrients per calories consumed.

The YouGov survey for the WCRF found that, on average, 17% of lower income households (social groups C2, D and E) eat at least five portions per day, compared with 27% for those in higher income groups. Fruit and veg consumption levels were lowest in the north of

iPad linked to neck strain As more and more people get hooked on tablet computers like the iPad, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health

studied 15 experienced tablet users in their natural viewing positions to see if using a tablet can cause head and neck strain.

They found that using a tablet on your lap for extended periods may raise the risk of neck and shoulder discomfort that could lead to musculoskeletal problems. They said placing a tablet on the lap created the greatest strain because it forces the user to look down at a steep angle, causing head and neck flexion – a particular hazard for users who are doing a lot of typing. One way to minimize the problem, they said, is to use a case that props up the screen to a better viewing angle when you don’t need to type. Even better would be to prop it up on a table. The

more elevated the tablet, the less you have to strain your neck to see the screen.

England, where 18% had five or more portions daily.

A Department of Health spokesman said it was aware that more had to be done to encourage people to eat their five a day and help prevent diseases like cancer: "That is why, through our Change4Life campaign, we invested around £10m last year on encouraging healthier lifestyles.”

Britain’S got talEnt narroW Win for thE adoraBlE dog and hiS oWnEr

Every dog has its day … and last weekend belonged to Pudsey The phones must have been going mad over the weekend that saw the final of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent series. And the question in everybody’s minds must have been “How on earth can I choose between Pudsey and the favourites – singing duo Jonathan Antoine, 17, and Charlotte Jaconelle, 16. However, once the voting was over Pudsey was declared the victor and his 17-year-old owner Ashleigh Butler was beyond delighted with the result.

Their routine on Saturday night with a great “Mission Impossible” style show delighted the audience. Simon Cowell has fallen in love with the little dog who clearly is devoted to his owner and loves to learn new tricks and routines, and no doubt so will the Queen be when they appear on the Royal Variety Performance. With a standing ovation from both judges and audience Pudsey narrowly won the competition with the public phone-in vote. Ashleigh and Pudsey also win the top prize of £500,000. Ashleigh was

crying with joy when Ant and Dec broke the news of her win saying she was “so proud of Pudsey”. And Simon described them as one of his “favourite ever acts”. There should be huge advertising and publicity opportunities to follow. The show’s latest series has been described as the “most successful ever” having seen a whole range of great acts. Judge Amanda Holden said that the addition of Little Britain’s David Walliams had brought out “a whole new side of Simon Cowell”

What a fabulous pair

Pop-Opera singers – and favourites to win – Jonathan Antoine 17, and Charlotte Jaconelle 16 were runners up in this year’s Britain’s Got Talent. At their audition, Simon Cowell suggested that Jonathan “dump” Charlotte but he refused and at the semi-finals Cowell said “that was probably the best decision he’d ever made”. Their performance on Saturday night’s final was flawless. Gone was the Jimi Hendrix T-Shirt for Jonathan and casual trousers and jacket for Charlotte and, in their place, Jonathan was in full

black dinner suit and sparklingly white shirt with Charlotte in a beautiful long white gown. The pair who performed “The Prayer” are already set to be recording stars and looked every bit the international stars they are sure to become. Frock and tie aside though, their performance saw both audience and jusdges on their feet with a standing ovation and Simon Cowell punching the air at the end in sheer delight. In an earlier show, he had said “I think we’ve just found a new Pavarotti” and he’s not wrong.

Jonathan’s age of just 17 belies his fabulous voice, Charlotte complements him perfectly. Throughout their performances it was noted how Jonathan – who it has to be said is a large lad – looked to Charlotte for reassurance, and every time he got just that. What a fabulous pair these two are. We will be seeing a lot more of them we hope. They will encourage people who have, in the past, said they disliked opera – much as the three tenors brought the art to the masses not that many years ago.

that the public rarely see. Cowell said of the finals: “This is the greatest final we have done. I have absolutely loved it.” Holden added that she had enjoyed working with Alesha Dixon who Cowell had poached from her role as judge on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. Alesha said that: “ Britain’s Got Talent is amazing. It’s end of the pier crazy and incredible,” adding that she would love to be included in next season’s show. “I’ve had the time of my life,” she said.

Ashleigh and the delightful Pudsey

e Voice plummets While Britain’s Got Talent enjoyed a ratings figure of 14.5 million viewers, The Voice’s ratings plummeted to a new low of an average throughout the show of just 5.9 million – a major drop from the 8.2 million the previous week. Having been rescheduled to an earlier slot of 6.10 pm, so it wouldn’t clash with the BGT final that started at 7.10pm, the show still failed to pull in the viewers. It will remain at the earlier time of 6.30pm next Saturday to avoid a clash with the BBC’s showing of the UEFA Champions League final and will remain at an earlier slot the following week so it doesn’t clash with the Eurovision song contest followed the next week with the live final. During this weekend’s show, one artiste on each of the two teams, Tom and Will.i.am, were saved by

public vote while the two mentors had to send two of their three remaining acts home. Frances Wood and Joelle Moses plus Adam Isaac and Matt & Sueleen were sent home by their mentors. Tom Jones chose to save Leanne Mitchel while his Ruth Brown was saved by the public vote. Will.i.am saved Tyler James and Jaz Ellington, who has been the bookies’ favourite to win since he first appeared, was saved by the public. Next week it’s the turn of the other two teams.

Shelby dies Race car driver and automobile manufacturer Carroll Shelby, who created the best known US sports cars of the 1960s – the AC Cobra and the Shelby Mustang – has died at age 89. One of the top race car drivers in the United States after World War II, Shelby turned to building cars starting in the 1960s, when he wedged a huge Ford V-8 engine into a lightweight British-made AC roadster to give birth to the AC Cobra. This combination of power and speed tore up the racetrack, enabling the Cobra to win in its category in the 24 Hours Le Mans race. Shelby was also the father of the special Ford Mustang series, the GT350 and the GT500, which were built at the end of the 1960s. Regularly updated, the Shelby Mustang GT500 is still the top of Ford's line of sports coupés in the United States.

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

Benjamin Theaker While reading your “virtual newspaper” on the Web, I noticed that G. Robinson states they had read “just two” of the columns by Amy Thomas, so I think it unfair to criticise her negative opinion. Granted, Ms Thomas makes no bones about airing her personal dislikes, but on the other hand she enthuses with gusto and humour about those she does like. The column always makes for entertaining reading and does not purport to be an official movie review. Frankly, I find it refreshing to read a column that refuses to gush over much of the overblown mind-numbing garbage that Hollywood throws at us and

Per R Dewer Like your correspondent Brian Dellar (Edn 173), I was trained by the RAF Technical College nearly 60 years ago; we were subjected to discipline far removed from that obtaining today. So I can well understand his frustration at the seeming lack of enforcement of the nonsmoking and other laws, (untaxed hence illegal Britregistered vehicles come to mind), especially here in Downtown Manilva. I don't think the Local Police

Tony Byford Like many charities, SOS dog refuge works in difficult circumstances and relies solely on voluntary help and donations from our

Stratford-upon-Avon, UK

often making a point of showing us some older and lesser known gems. G. Robinson questions where Ms Thomas’s “warmth of feeling” is, I would question where is G. Robinson’s sense of humour is – surely you must realize that much of her writing is with her tongue planted firmly in her cheek. It is, after all, a lighthearted piece of writing. Oh, one last comment – as for the Titanic romances, though I don’t dispute some dalliances may have been formed during those few short days at sea, they would certainly not have been between a first class and a steerage passenger.

And as for Potter fans, the Sir Frederick Ashton and the Royal Ballet´s interpretation of her tales on film is outstanding. Editor says: We have had many letters from readers praising Amy Thomas’ column since G Robinson’s comments last week so, not to worry, Amy will be with us for some time yet! Also, the columns we run are the opinions of the people who write them and readers are, of course, able to agree or disagree as they see fit. Keep those letters coming in!

Manilva deserve much blame however, for although they are well intentioned, they are 'thin on the ground' and are mostly from families of what was a generation ago an impoverished fishing community which the property barons and greedy tourism have turned into something close to a concrete jungle. Their salaries and benefits are provided in turn by a cash-strapped Ayuntamiento, itself a victim of the property barons.

Parts of this jungle are rented out to countless unregistered people {non-'empadronado'); if they were, perhaps we would see Manilva with enough legal residents to warrant a Policia Nacionale establishment and more Guardia Civil, in line with our grown-up neighbour Estepona, where the laws are obeyed. Until that frubjious day arrives I suggest your correspondent is 'Farting into a Windmill'!

SOS co-founder. By email supporters. Readers of The News will recall that we are currently searching for a new refuge, and relying very heavily on foster homes plus other help – you all know who you are and thank you! So it was very worrying to hear last week that SOS has closed down and put to sleep all the dogs in its care. This is a malicious lie, and we do have some idea who might be spreading it. In recent weeks we stepped in after a Labrador and her seven pups were abandoned, when 5 puppies were found in a ditch, when two puppies were found cowering at the side of the road, next to the dead body of their sibling, and when two puppies were thrust into my hands at the La Trocha Sunday market, with the threat that if I did not take them the man holding them would take them to the nearest field and dump them. All these animals are now

being cared for. So this is a message to News readers – rest assured that we have not closed down, and we would never put to sleep a healthy animal. Do please visit our stall at the Sunday market if you would like to hear more about the dogs in our care. We believe that the person(s) behind this rumour are also behind the cruel assertions that Kim, who also has a stall at the Sunday market and is well known to many, has been sending dogs to Switzerland for vivisection – untrue and a slur on her and the Swiss charity dedicated to finding new homes for Spanish dogs. May I also extend a big thankyou to your readers for responding to our appeal for bric-a-brac, clothes and household goods. It’s ongoing, and we will happily come to you to collect any unwanted items! Just give us a call on 952 960 202 or 665 682 919.

Stargazing By Ken Campbell

Annular Eclipse of e Sun Next Sunday and Monday there will be an annular eclipse of the Sun. But what is an annular eclipse and why does it take place on two days?

A

n eclipse of the Sun occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon line up exactly and the Moon passes in front of the sun blocking out its light for a few minutes. By sheer coincidence, The Sun is 400 times bigger than the Moon but it is 400 times further away and so they appear almost exactly the same size in the sky, so during a regular eclipse, the Moon just fits nicely over the Sun’s disc covering it completely.

B

ut two weeks ago I told you about the super-sized full Moon, when the Moon was at its absolute closest point to the Earth making it appear about 1/3rd bigger than normal. Now that the Moon has completed half an orbit around the Earth it will be at its most distant point from the Earth when it eclipses the Sun and so it will appear about 1/3rd smaller than normal. This reduction in the Moon’s apparent size will make it too small to cover the whole of the Sun’s disc so during an annular eclipse a ring –or annulus – of sunlight will appear all around the Moon. An annular eclipse is essentially a partial eclipse in the sense that the Moon never blots out the sun completely.

U

nfortunately the eclipse will occur mostly over the Pacific Ocean on the other side of the world to us and so won’t be visible from Europe. The first point of contact will begin in southern China, then head east over Japan crossing the Pacific Ocean until it reaches the west coast of the United States of America crossing the International Date Line on route. So for people watching it in Japan it will occur on 20th May while for people in the USA it will occur on 21st May.

W

e tend to think of eclipses as being a very rare event but they occur much more frequently than you would think, there will be a total eclipse of the Sun occurring on November 13th this year but again it is on the wrong side of the Earth to us and will favour Australia this time. The next time that Europe will see anything of an eclipse will be in 2015

C

when a partial eclipse will be visible. The problem with eclipses is that the path of totality i.e. the path on the Earth where the Moon will cover the whole disc of the Sun is very narrow indeed, sometimes only a few dozen miles wide and so anyone standing outside of the path will only see a partial eclipse. A total eclipse of the Sun will pass directly over southern Spain on August 2nd 2027.

T

here can also be a hybrid eclipse which means that parts of the Earth will see an annular eclipse and other places on the path will witness a total eclipse. Because the Earth is round then if the eclipse is seen when the Sun is either just rising or setting then the Moon is further away from the observer than when it is directly overhead making it appear too small to cover the whole of the Sun.

I

n 1970 I was 11 years old and went to a lecture given by Sir Patrick Moore; he told me that the next eclipse visible in England would be on August 11th 1999. That was 29 years away! During that time I sat my ‘O’ levels, left school, completed an electrical apprenticeship, got married, had two children and watched them growing. And all this time I had remembered what Patrick Moore had said. When the date for the eclipse came closer my wife booked a trip for us to Reims near Paris to watch it. And I can understand why ancient humans would be terrified when they occur; a total eclipse of the Sun is the most awesome natural sight that you can imagine!

Tanker drivers vote to end dispute by just 1% The threat of a damaging fuel tanker strike has been averted after drivers voted by the narrowest of margins to accept a peace deal. Six weeks after the government was shaken by panic buying of petrol across the country, hauliers voted by just 51 per cent in favour of ending the dispute. In four out of the seven firms involved, tanker drivers rejected the offer on safety standards and training – but overall the deal will go through.

Masterful Maldonado takes maiden win in Barcelona

The start went as most expected, Maldonado got a good start, but Alonso's was better – the skill of a seasoned double world champion at the top of his game. Maldonado tried squeezing him as tight as he dared, Alonso’s right wheels were actually on the grass, but the Spaniard didn't flinch. As they swept through the first corner, Alonso inched ahead and finally took track position. The deed was done, and the race was won. Except, Alonso wasn’t pulling away, and Maldonado wasn't panicking, and instead was perfectly happy staying with the Ferrari and maintaining a smooth clean line. While it didn't exactly look like he was in any position to go for the lead, he looked a certainty for second. Sir Frank must have thought that even this scenario was almost beyond his wildest dreams. Faced with this scenario Williams immediately changed its pit stop strategy in anticipation of Alonso’s, and that enabled Maldonado to regain the lead after 27 laps. He then held on to the lead through the following pit stops. But by Lap 50 of the 66-lap race, Alonso trailed him by just 0.8 seconds. Then suddenly, Alonso had a problem he

could not identify that cost him grip on his Ferrari. While Hamilton showed off all his

pushed so hard, and I knew this was going to be a tough race, but to have my first podium and my first win – you can just imagine the emotions," said Maldonado. The celebrations at the Circuit de Catalunya were short-lived, however, with the team's garage gutted by fire after the race and Venezuelan Maldonado carrying his 12-yearold cousin to safety in a smoke-filled pitlane.

talents by

carving his way through the field from last place on the grid to eighth, the battle at the front was on a knife-edge right to the very end. With 10 laps to go there was less than a second between Maldonado and Alonso while Raikkonen was taking huge chunks out of their lead lap by lap, but Finland's 2007 champion Raikkonen had to settle for a disappointing third, taking the chequered flag 3.8 seconds behind Maldonado after just running out of laps in a spirited chase for a possible victory.

them out of the race. The race stewards decided Schumacher had caused a collision that took Senna out of the race. Schumacher had initially claimed that the incident was the Brazilian's fault for moving in the braking zone. The incident and penalty will pile more pressure on Schumacher, who in the third year of his comeback to the sport has had the worst start to a season in his career.

Team founder and principal Frank Williams, in a wheelchair, was pushed hurriedly from the garage to safety as thick, acrid smoke billowed over the paddock. Nine people from three teams who had battled the flames were taken to the circuit medical centre, mostly suffering from smoke inhalation Michael Schumacher has been hit with a five-place grid penalty for the next race in Monaco after ramming into the back of Maldonado’s team mate Bruno Senna.

Pastor Maldonado started from pole position, after the stunningly harsh overnight decision by the stewards to strip McLaren's Lewis Hamilton of his qualifying times for a technical infringement after his car ran too low on fuel after its final flying lap, and sending him to the very back of the grid. But even starting at the front seemed no assurance of race success for the Williams team, especially not when Maldonado found himself facing off against the formidable Fernando Alonso in the Ferrari in the run down to the first corner once the lights went out.

Fiesta of Fords fills Beaulieu Rain held off for this year’s Simply Ford event, held in the grounds of the National Motor Museum. The event is now in its third year and a firm fixture on the Beaulieu calendar. Over 1,100 people attended and 500 Ford cars, from early models to custom and modern classics, were on display in the Beaulieu Arena and surrounding parkland. Clubs attending included the Ford Car Owners Club, Obviously Ford, the RS Owners Club and the Mark Three Owners Club. In addition, there were a number of trade stands selling Ford related parts and accessories. The Ford Motor Company supported the event for the second year, bringing along a Ford RS200, an Escort Cosworth WRC and a Lotus Cortina. Also making a welcome return was the Ford Supervan 3 which has a top

speed of around 150mph. It is built on a Ford C100 race car chassis and was originally powered by a mid-mounted FordCosworth 650bhp ‘HB’ F1 engine. A People’s Choice trophy was awarded to Mark Hudd from Devises for his pristine 1995 Escort Cosworth. Runners up were Paul Love from Bath with his Sierra Cosworth 4×4 and Jim Watson from Eastleigh with a 1959 Popular 100E. The prizes were presented by the National Motor Museum’s Manager and Chief Engineer, Doug Hill. The Managing Director of Beaulieu-based Vintage Tyres, Chris Marchant, presented a trophy for the best Cortina, in celebration of the 50th anniversary this year of both Vintage Tyres and the Cortina. The winner was Mark Taylor from Clevedon, owner of a Mk III Cortina Savage.

International Rugby Fiesta Axarquia Rugby Club Colts U17 team welcomed the famed Welsh rugby club, Cwmbran, at the Fernando Hierro stadium in VelezMalaga on Saturday 12th May 2012. This was truly an international event with young players from Wales, Spain, Italy, Argentina and the UK supplemented by a 100-strong crowd including 10 American tourists keen to learn more about the great sport of rugby. The Americans were amazed at the ferocity and speed of the game (and the lack of body armour and helmets worn by the kids!), but were even more amazed at the camaraderie at the end of the game when both sets of players hugged and shook each other’s hands – all friends after the battle. This was an exhibition of the true spirit of rugby. Cwmbran, a club steeped in 130 years of history, showed why they have just won their championship league in Wales, with some technically superb rugby, a well drilled back line and they ran in numerous tries during the first half. The Axarquia boys never gave up and as the heat took its toll on the Welsh in the second

half, the brave “Wild Boar” boys from Axarquia started to gain strength, running in a great try and nearly scoring a second, much to the enjoyment and appreciation of the crowd. While Axarquia lost 57-5 at the final whistle, the president of Cwmbran, Robbie Evans, praised all the players after the match. He stated, “Cwmbran were founded 130 years ago and all of our boys have been playing since the age of five or six years of age. For Axarquia Rugby Club, which was only formed six or seven years ago, and with players who have only started playing this year (and one player, Kieran Jones, who has played his first ever game today!), this was an amazing performance. They gave our lads a good fight

On Friday the 4th May The Calahonda District Darts League held their annual presentation night at Henry’s Bar in Torrenueva. The league combines 16 teams into two divisions of over 200 players in all competitions, leagues and cups. In past seasons, honours have been dominated by the Tony’s Bar team from La Cala and in particular the Ray’s Bar team of Doña Lola, but this year there has been a greater spread of winners meaning success for everybody which shows the rise and change in standards. Division 2 runners up were Oscar’s Stars of Doña Lola and the champions were Tony’s Tornados of La Cala. Division 1 runners up were Henry’s Jagerbombs

and making it three years as champions the Ray’s Rascals team captained by Richard Walker. The Kate Clark gold cup was won by Bunker’s Rangers, who have had a great season. The silver cup was won by Dempsey’s Dynamos who have also had an excellent season winning the Memorial silver cup as well. The Memorial gold cup was won in great style by the team of Henry’s Jagerbombs. Women’s player of the season is singles gold champion and silver cup doubles winner Nina Hilton of Zoco Zulus from Our bar. Deano Moseley of Tony’s Tornados was men’s player of the year as singles gold cup champion. There are

Only time will tell whether Manchester City’s 3-2 victory on Sunday against relegation strugglers Queens Park Rangers, eking out the narrowest of triumphs in a season-long contest with Manchester United for the Nº1 spot in The Premiership marked the start of a new era – or a temporary blip – in the dominance that Sir Alex Ferguson, has achieved by winning 12 titles in the 20 seasons since the Premier League was founded. Despite the advantage of an extra man after Queens Park Rangers’ often-

pugnacious captain, Joey Barton, was sent off for striking Tevez early in the second half, City were trailing, 2-1, at the end of 90 minutes. Needing a win to finish ahead of Manchester United in the league standings, City scored twice in 125

Man City forced to apologise to Fergie Manchester City have apologised after striker Carlos Tevez was pictured with a sign saying "RIP Fergie" during his side's Premier League title parade. The former Manchester United forward poked fun at former boss Sir Alex Ferguson, as City paraded their trophy on an open-top bus through Manchester.The sign was thought to refer to a 2009 response by Ferguson, when asked if United would ever be City's underdogs.Ferguson said at the time: "Not in my lifetime".

Matt Kuchar wins e Players Championship American Matt Kuchar held his nerve on a tense final day to win the Players Championship at Sawgrass by two shots. The 33-yearold, who started the round one shot behind leader Kevin Na, dropped a shot at the opening hole but hit four birdies for a 13-under total. Kuchar's previous best finish this season was joint third at the Masters in Augusta Scotland's Martin Laird and American trio Zach Johnson, Ben Curtis and Rickie Fowler were joint second. Na, who is looking for his second PGA Tour title,

was given a slow play warning by tournament referees on day three, over the length of time he was taking before shots with a ritual which included a remarkable number of practice swings before striking the ball.

At last year's Texas Open Na took 16 at one hole. Despite the problems, his golf was often stunning but he admitted afterwards he was struggling with his balance over shots.

Luke Donald, needing a top-four finish to take over from Rory McIlroy as world number one, finished sixth. Donald had started the final round back in 27th, eight shots behind Na, but battled hard with a round of 66 for a nine-under total. He also equalled the record for golf's richest event, with a back-nine 30 containing six birdies.

"There's a lot going on and I know the whole world's watching," he said. "It's really frustrating for me and I'm screaming at

League qualification for the first time. The atmosphere was fantastic and it was Malaga who started in dominating fashion, dictating play and creating chances at will. Eliseu was the first to test Pablo in the Sporting goal and minutes after a Rondon header came back off the upright. Isco and Cazorla were denied by Pablo again and Demichelis headed over from the back post as Malaga pressed for the opening. After half time the one way traffic continued and once again Pablo in the Sporting goal was a thorn in Malaga's side saving from Joaquin and Camacho. On 49 minutes Malaga made the deserved breakthrough, Rondon 'Malaga's leading goalscorer again' headed home to send the Roselada into raptures. And it was Rondon again who missed

Van Persie off to Man City in Mega Deal Robin van Persie is set to join Manchester City this summer in a deal that will make him one of the bestpaid players in the world, according to Tuesday's papers. The Daily Mirror and The Sun both report that City will offer the Dutchman £250,000-aweek to move to the champions, trebling his wages and putting him in the same earnings bracket as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.Arsenal's objections to selling the player will apparently be answered by a £25 million transfer fee - an astonishing amount considering that he has just one year left on his contract. the Mirror claims Van Persie will tell Gunners chiefs on Wednesday that he is off to City.
