Legal challenge on exclusion from EU Referendum

A legal challenge has been launched over the rule which prohibits UK ex-pats, who have not lived in the country for more than 15 years, from voting in General Elections and the forthcoming referendum on EU membership.

Full details at: http://www.thelocal.es/20160316/british-expats-challenge-voting-block-in-eu-referendum-brexit-spain

There is also a petition to be signed at: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/112142.  This requires 10,000 signatures to trigger a formal response from the government (the total is presently almost 15,000) and 100,000 are need to prompt a parliamentary debate.  Please sign!



Sad End to the Story of the Pig

I thought some readers may be interested in hearing about the fate of the pig, the following is as related to me by some Spanish acquaintances, these people having become concerned about the welfare of the pig called the police who duly arrived and found  the pig in a distressed condition and informed the owner that they were calling Animal Protection and left, before the protection people arrived if I understand the gesture correctly the pig was killed , they suggested two reasons why this happened firstly that the owner did not want to pay vets bills and secondly that he did not want officials looking too closely at his horses ? Whatever the reason the pig is no longer there, the horses remain and appear to be healthy and are cared for .   Hayden


Amazon Fire Stick  – Can anyone help?

My son sent me an Amazon Fire Stick from the U.K. which he had loaded with the appropriate programmes.  I have followed the instructions and plugged it in to the T.V. and typed in my Jazztel clave.  I am getting a notice on screen saying

Jazztel DBC8 signal strength very good, scaning”.  Then another notice pops up saying “Not in Range,disconnected”.

Can anyone tell me if I am doing something wrong and offer any advice?

Replies to Digame please, just in case someone else is having the same problem.  Mike


Response to  Chicken George
Sorry to hear about your distress!!
You kindly provided me with a organic chicken for me to make my life saving bone broth Thank you. One good turn deserves another so I can offer my husbands services in purchasing the medication, with sweaty woman on front of box, from the uk as he is going next week for 3 days. He will only be visiting the Trafford centre Manchester, so if it is there he can get it.
Hope this helps.

He does not speak  English, but sorted me out in about 15 minutes, with a further check up in the afternoon. His office is not grand, he doesn’t wear a white coat, but he really knows his stuff!

All dogs, large or small, good or badly behaved welcome.
Also, if you are experiencing particular difficulties with your dog,
we can offer One to One Private sessions, to help owners deal with
more specific problems such as :
Aggression – towards other dogs, people & other animals.
Possessiveness – over food, toys & bed etc.
Greeting – barking or jumping up at you, visitors or people you meet on the street.
Excessive barking – this could be due to territorial, guarding behaviour, boredom, frustration or separation anxiety, or a combination of any of these.
Stress / Insecurity – following you or another family member constantly, destructive behaviour when left, barking or howling when left, constant licking or chewing of their own feet or legs, whining, shaking or hiding.
Toileting in the house (excluding young puppies) – scent-marking, urinating or defecating in the house. These are normally signs of stress, anxiety or dominance.
Fear – examples include: walking near traffic, loud noises (thunder / fireworks etc.), strangers, travelling in cars.
Obsessions – examples include: tail chasing, balls or toys, stones or sticks, vacuum cleaners,  brooms, mops, household sprays etc.
