I was extremely surprised to read this article, albeit in the longer paper edition of the newspaper.
Weirdly, the paper edition was quite different to the online one and only put British buyers just ahead of the Russians, by about one percent or so. The paper edition also had an article where a Spanish politician at local level (Valencia) believed only the Russians and Chinese could save the housing market, which didn’t make the digital version either.
It’s as if the publishers of the biggest expat newspaper in Spain, the one you have to pay for, are sanitising the online version for their Spanish readers. Or Censors?
