      The Auken Report was voted for this morning at the EU Petitions Committee Meeting in Brussels. It was Accepted, & the final voting will be at the next meeting in March, which I’ve been invited to. Our Petition deals with several aspects not covered by this excellent Report, which also need to be addressed.

      Suzanne, that’s really good news. Dare we hope that walls will begin to crumble at last?

      I wish you good lobbying in March – that invitation couldn’t be better.

      Terrific!

      Only the right walls, hopefully ❗ 😆

      Thanks for the support Roots & Goodstich.
      And Roots, do you think you may have an answer from the Bank of Spain in the next few weeks? If they haven’t responded, I can add this point specifically into Our Petition going to the EU, if you’d like me to.
      I suppose that asking the BofS to respond within a timeframe may be asking too much ❓

      Thanks very much for the offer Suzanne. I hope the BoS will respond in good time. They have a very ordered complaints process which has to be gone through according to their website. How they view a petition has yet to be seen.

      I’ll certainly post any news as soon as I get it.

      Hi Roots
      Pretty much covers everything. Certain issue are specific & others are fall out from other main issue. I am of the opinion that no serious action will be taken by the Spanish. Some paper shuffling will be carried out & it will be business as usual. I hope I am wrong.

      Shakeel – I disagree that the Auken Report “covers everything”. As does the EU Petitions Committee.

      Hi Suzanne,
      I used the word “pretty much” As we all know that the problems have many tentacles, dimensions & facets. No one report can cover all the issues,

      The report covered Illegal builds, environment, Judiciary, lenient sentencing, buyers rights etc.

      European Parliament votes in favour of the Auken report which calls for EU funds to Spain to be frozen until real estate abuses are corrected (not binding yet).

      Votes: 349 in favour, 110 against and 114 abstentions from the Spanish PSOE and PP members.

      Step in the right direction. I would like to know who voted against and the abstentions by Spanish MEPs is curious for reasons to protect the status quo and the gravy train for Spain.

      have just heard an interview with Auken on BBC world service. She mainly refered to the Valencia land grab and said 100,000 had been affected. She did have to pop in a comment that the report did not include the buyers who had illegal houses through their own stupidity. This was then picked up on by the BBC’s correspondent in Madrid. After saying that no-one from the Spanish Government was available for comment, he waffled that some British had bought knowing that they were illegal 🙄 It also said that it is unlikely that Spain would lose any of it’s funding. Positive that it has actually happened though, another example of the third world country it is. A Spanish man commented in the local news today that they would finish up with a country like Turkey in the Worlds ratings….bit of a racist insult to Turkey really 😉

      I doubt it.
