I hold my hand up. I am the one who wrote. I had my first response this morning from Robert Kilroy-Silk, one of the MEPs in my region (East Midlands). He replied by return to say that he is forwarding a copy of my letter to the Spanish Ambassador for his comments. I’ll post here what he says – and any other responses I get.

I mailed my own MP, the 6 MEP’s for my region, the Governor of the Bank of England and the Spanish Ombudsman.

I think it would be good if more of us would write because:
it raises awareness amongst people who may be able to put pressure in the right places;
it names and shames;
and it makes me feel better because I’m doing something. I can’t bear the powerlessness of this situation.
