I don’t like joining in with the professional gloom watchers and would dearly like to post something to rock their dreary lives. I thought this might be a start:

Being bearish on the Spanish economy or investment in Spanish property is not doom watching, merely an attempt at common sense analysis on the wisdom of buying property in Spain in the current climate
I could be bullish on investment elsewhere in the world such as Australia but what relevance would that have to this forum.
A 1.2% reduction in Spain’s foreign debt levels is on the face of it good news. Until you understand it still remains at €174 trillion and 164% of GDP down from 167%. Rejoice!
Suggesting posters have ‘dreary lives’ is simply descending to the behaviour of the playground.

I’m wary of commentators who quote a tiny part of a previous post and then comment on that tiny part. I believe they are just as selective in most of their writing; your speciality is highlighting any negative news about Spain, consistently, over and over again.

You obviously stopped reading after finding the two lines you urgently wanted to comment on, had you read on, you would have discovered that I was more than critical of the Spanish banking system, property developers and some other matters frequently discussed on this forum.

I believe my views to be reasonably balanced, yours aren’t.
