A satirical take on Spanish national news

My Tailor is Rich

Francisco Camps, the handsome, suave ex-president of Valencia, resigned a few months ago from office in order to face down charges that he had accepted several expensive suits as gifts. In turn, one supposes, the free suits guaranteed someone or someone’s certain favourable treatment.

Just as consumers are getting used to the idea of monthly electricity bill, it has now been decided to switch back to two-monthly ones. Gone, then, will be the ‘estimated readings’ so that you will only be charged for what you have actually used.

Three Spanish National Articles

Three national articles from the January edition. Including interesting stuff about Argentina declassifying papers relating to the ‘disappeared’ Spaniards. Monetary union discussions and amendments. And finally Hot Hot Hot about the overall yearly temperature in Spain for 2011.

Three Spain Articles

Three Spain articles from the December edition, including a conman who was kidnapped by his victims and two articles about the rather bristly Britain/Spain/Gibraltar relationship.
