    For those of you who missed Denise Holt, our ambassador to Spain, being interviewed on BBC 1’s Breakfast programme yesterday morning you can find a transcript of the whole thing at:

    I suspect she may have been wheeled out in response to Suzanne’s petition. I hope you will all put pens to paper (or fingers to keypads) and let her know what the real situation is!! Go for it.

    “And other problems have come along……..some property rights but it’s important to keep it in context that even though these may amount to one or two thousand or five thousand…..”

    Some property rights? one, two or five thousand ??

    Just the Land Grab petition alone had 35,000 signatures on it.
    Don’t these overpaid, incompetant, ignorant Gov. officials do any homework before they open their mouths?
    I think they spend more ‘homework’ time studying the ‘rules’ to see how they can best fiddle their expenses. If only they were as good at their jobs as they are at fiddling.

    Another worrying comment:
    ‘Spain is a big and complex country and different regions have different legislation, so if you go and live in Valencia different rules may apply from if you go and live in Murcia…’

    This idea that each region can do their own thing, is exactly what is causing many of our problems & mirrors the words of those we are battling with. But she got the ‘complex’ bit right.

    And just to rub salt in it – click this link and you can hear her gaily talking about what a wonderful posting she has as Ambassador to Spain – no worries at all.

    This was on Woman’s Hour yesterday morning as I was driving to Nottingham doing my voluntary bit for humanity in my own small way. I nearly drove into the hedge…

    “‘Spain is a big and complex country and different regions have different legislation, so if you go and live in Valencia different rules may apply from if you go and live in Murcia…’ “

    So is the USA from one end to other. Irrespective consumer is King & his fundamental rights are protected. To think the regional differences can be attributed to overt & endemic corrpution is a lot of nonsense.

    My opinion about the Foreign office is well posted. This is the same office that had advised no danger of General Galtieri was planning to invade the Falkland Island & he did exactly the same in less than 24 hours.

    I have friends who work for the foreign office. I would not employ them to clean the streets.
