Benny has been ruffling the governing party in Almuñécar over the state of Cotobro Beach, which has been mangled by waves.
This has become probably the most-used headline in the Gazette, as no matter how many cases are brought against the Ex-Mayor of Almuñécar, Juan Carlos Benavides, he’s always acquitted.
The XVI edición del Vino Nuevo, organized by Benny’s party each year, went down well, as did the wine in the hamlet of Los Martínez!
OK, so it’s a flippant translation of the name of this small hamlet above La Herradura: Pago de Guerra Alto, but it had you guessing, eh!
People often ask me if I think that Benny will get back in and I answer that I think he will, but rather thanks the decline in the PP and PSOE, than to a massive swing in his favour.
The provincial law court has just confirmed the ex-Mayor’s acquittal by the local court in Motril, together with the other five councillors that stood trial with him over the illegally-built sports hall in the Rio Jate vega.
