The big stick

MARIANO RAJOY wants to complete his full four-year term at the head of the Spanish government. He avoided a third general election in the interests of stability, he says in self-sacrificing tones. Rajoy’s huge overall majority has shrivelled into a minority government obliged to negotiate on all sides, so why…

What exactly is a proxy vote?

Q. I am not able to attend the coming Annual General Meeting of my Community of Property Owners, but I am told that I can assign my vote to another person, who will cast my vote at the meeting. Do I need to specify how I want him to vote…

2016: The good, the bad and the bonkers

I WROTE last time about 2016, the year of the political earthquake, and pollsters, pundits, bookies - you name it - getting everything wrong! Well, this time, let’s look not at events of 2016, but at some of the people who made the headlines. We saw David Cameron stepping down…

The good, the bad and the bizarre of 2016

And goodwill towards everyone here!

IT might be just momentary, this peace on earth and goodwill toward man, but here in this corner of Camelot it has been a long year to endure—and, a much needed respite is required. Plenty of good friends have passed, world famous personalities have exited too. It’s a little darker…

Speak out but watch your step

JUAN PEDRO YLLANES, a judge by profession, is on voluntary leave because he is also a Podemos MP.
