      Love it, from which ever angle you want to come.

      The real worry may be that until last week, Mr Lewis held the rather more modest title of Councillor for Animals, with responsibility for any matters pertaining to cats, dogs and other creatures in the town
      Still, he can’t be worse than his corrupt predecessor/s. Maybe more Town Halls should follow suit. Ex-pats for Mayors! Is it worth a poll? 😉

      the bugger is he’s been here for 25 years. I’ve enough people who have been here for years, and when it comes to brown envelopes and such they treat it as a “when in rome” situation. I hope not in this case.

      If i remember there was a thread here a while ago and the elections. It one of those little villages where they built a mostronsity of an urbanisation nearby? More people in the urbanisation than in the village or something like that?

      Yes. I think the article described the urbanisation as a British ghetto 😯

      The town was founded in the 18th century, but the new development has been described as a British ghetto.
      Bars like EastEnders and Dreams serve all day English breakfasts and British beers.

      Your worse nightmare…at least it would be mine! Why are spanish developers ruining Spain. What’s more why are they allowed to do it?

      Think of San Fulgencio as a city-state, where there are 2000 Spanish speakers and 8000 English speakers. Our indignation should not be against the Councillor for Pets (who can probably say ‘sit’, ‘heel’ and, above all, ‘beg’ in various languages), but for the erstwhile mayoress who had never bothered to learn the language of the vast majority of her fellow sanfulgencianos.

      Good point! seeing as the local economy depends on the British.

      A balanced view lennox. 😀 I hope the guy remains Mayor for quite sometime. It may be the answer to the corruption problems at the Town Halls, to have an ex-pat Mayor.

      -(who can probably say ‘sit’, ‘heel’ and, above all, ‘beg’ in various languages)

      – so should be able to deal with the developers just like the people being replaced…

      and alothough i don’t disagree. It could be argued that the newcomers should learn the native language maybe.

      Well, if some creature from another planet were to land in the middle of the no-doubt charming town of San Fulge, they would weigh the odds, consider their options, and in due course ask to be taken to someone’s leader… in English!
      In the old times, Felipe of Spain would no doubt have sent thousands of unwilling settlers from some place like Aranda del Duero to address the imbalance. These days, the government could consider relocating a few thousand ecuatorianos there… and giving them the vote…
      Hang on, come to think of it, they’re way ahead of me.
