When I say sleepy, it was a sleeping giant, five times bigger than the UK.
I know you refuse to use the Internet to find out facts, but can you look at a map and see that Spain is NOT FIVE TIMES BIGGER THEN THE UK.
Spain is TWICE as big as the UK, and it cannot be called a giant. Besides anything else, its only has the same amount of water as the UK so its growth prospects are limited.
OK Peter, I stand corrected, twice as big. With a smaller population, it has plenty room to expand, to double its population to get somewhere near to the UK standards, and the rest of the crowded EU.
That means it has got room for another 60 million people. That’s the point I was clumsily trying to make.
