The Lockdown Rumour Mill: There is a lot of talk going around on radio programs and Fakebook suggesting Andalucia is headed back to Home Confinement. Do not believe the rumours, only the National Gov’t can declare home confinement. That requires a vote, so we will have advance notice if such a vote is scheduled. There should be an official update later this week, or early next week when they must review/renew the curfew.

Online streaming giants face rise in tax to fund Spanish productions: Spain is preparing legislation that would impose a 5.0 percent tax on streaming giants like Netflix with the funds used to boost Spanish cinematic production, the government said on Friday. (Of course these companies will simply pass on the expense to their customers, so expect a rise in your IPTV bills next year. -Ed.)
Global giants such as Amazon, Google and Netflix often pay very little tax in nations where they are not physically present, presenting a major challenge for many countries.
Early last month, the Spanish government gave final approval to a 3.0 percent tax on revenues generated by digital giants such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon which will come into effect within three months.

US Presidental Election 2020- The Press Declares Biden The Winner, But Will The Electoral College Agree? {by Naythan} Regardless of who you support for US President you’ll need to be patient. The media giants are prematurely claiming a Biden victory before a single Electoral College vote has been cast. This is the same mistake that occurred in the last US presidental election, when Hillary Clinton was declared by the media giants to be the winner based on the popular vote, which turned out to be incorrect as the Electoral College elected Trump. Four other presidents have won the Electoral College vote after losing the popular vote: Bush (2000), Harrison, Hayes and J.Q. Adams. Remember, in the American system’s Electoral College, 18 states still have not passed laws requiring Electoral College members to follow the popular vote! In any case, there are recounts, fraudulent voting software and still uncounted votes remaining to be sorted out. Votes may be disqualified in areas where there were more votes cast than registered voters. Postmark fraud has been alleged. Registered official voting observers, with court orders allowing them access in hand, were denied access to vote counting rooms and have filed in court to have those unmonitored ballots rejected or recounted. At least one court has declared mail-in votes uncounted by the end of Election Day be isolated for analysis. So many loose ends remain. Biden may well have won the popular vote, but that still is yet to be determined, and it certainly does not make him the President Elect. So when will we know the results of the Electoral College vote? On January 6, 2021 at the “Joint Session of Congress to Count Electoral Votes and Declare Election Results”.
