LIFE in Spain : Iran: Doing things in Spain : & Editing

LIFE IN SPAIN: Fed up of being assailed by the people they fail, the country's driving inspectors have gone on strike. Given Spain's low levels of violence, this is a tad surprising. Unless the problem is confined to certain parts of Andalucia. Where people do occasionally shoot each other.

IRAN: I wonder how many people, looking at its ambitions for regional hegemony, realise just how large its empire was before Alexander the Great destroyed it. As with Putin and Russia, of course. If you see what I mean. One can understand, if not sympathise. The Brits next?

DOING THINGS IN SPAIN: Around 2000, John Hooper asked if the Spanish, in the age of the internet would give up their preference for doing things face to face. I have to say that's not my impression. Others may differ, of course, but I still seem to need more time than I should in solving problems.

FINALLY: Reader Q10 kindly provides me with a free editing service. So it is that that I have to confess it wasn't a cartoon in El Pais which lampooned President Rajoy as catatonic but an article below it.

Correction re. The Saudi high-speed train – Thank you.

Eamon said “Speak your mind and don't beat about the bush by trying to ask questions when you already know what the answer is.” Sound advice – Couldn’t agree more.

My view is that the prelates are less interested in the wellbeing of families than in the imposition of their dogma and doctrines on them. One hundred percent concur Colin. Bravo.

Furthermore, I regard the church as iniquitous and pernicious. One hundred percent concur Colin. Bravo.

I have no objections to your comments, Eamon. Nor to your beliefs and your freedom to express them. Well said I say, each and every person has his\her own beliefs. Which must be respected always.

Your confession is accepted my friend, even though you have not addressed the three insane reasons why she thinks Sr. Rajoy is sleeping. But I am sure you will have your own, more valid, reasons. I must take a break. Long may your blog continue – Absolution is yours – Go forth into the light and sin no more.
