Is the Lady for turning after all?

WITH the despatch of Article 50, the gauntlets have been thrown down, the opening cards played, the warning shots fired (mainly over Gibraltar). Now there is the lull before the storm as we await the response of the remaining 27 EU member states as they confer over dinner after dinner.…

I feel this is only the beginning

I CERTAINLY didn’t expect my gloomy forecast regarding the Gibraltar dispute to manifest quite so quickly. In a recent edition I stated that the idiotic statements of Lord Howe, coupled with the British underestimation of the Spanish passion for Gibraltarian sovereignty, could bode very badly for British citizens. My memories…

Testing the constant bragging!

D JUAN RIBO was renting my brother’s large old house just up the road from me. He not only was a diplomat but also seemed to know anyone that walked on earth and had something worthwhile to say. He knew everything about everything and everybody too. So, when he asked…

Are you a dirty beer drinker?

DON’T GET ME WRONG! I’m not accusing beer drinkers of being ‘dirty’! We are actually talking about the beer itself. I am not a beer drinker as such, but admit in the summer to be able to sink a couple of draught Mahou or Alambra and watching the cooling effect…

Bueno, bonito and barato

WHEN I was about 12 we had to draw and colour the map of Africa. Although I enjoyed the art aspect of the assignment I clearly remember my lack of general interest, as I’d never be going there.I couldn’t have been more wrong. When trying to get my first work…

Ready to cooperate

THERESA MAY’S ‘dear John’ letter to Brussels activating Article 50 and Brexit was achingly polite. But May did not get off to the best of starts as every member of the remaining EU family homed in on a barelyveiled warning about cooperation on security and terrorism and compared it to…

STOP PRESS! The story behind the headlines

IT’S not often I’m left speechless, but that’s precisely what happened during a recent appointment with my gynaecologist in London. As soon as all the medical stuff was over, his next words were: “That novel of yours could have been about me!” As I said, I was speechless, having no…

Give us all a well-deserved break

I AM not, never have been, and hopefully never will be, a racist. I challenge one reader to show me a single example of any writing or column comment to disprove this statement. Well, I’ll save you the trouble. You won’t find one. Sometimes I feel like Enoch Powell. David…

Living with the good life

THE frugal will ever suspect flamboyant spendthrifts and Eurogroup president Jeroen Dijsselbloem accused Spain of squandering Brussels money on “wine and women.” Speaking in the national parliament Ciudadanos leader Albert Rivera agreed that money was wasted, but it went on corruption, empty motorways and closed airports. Admittedly, the population once…

Teaching new words to the Spanish ambassador

I HEARD a light tapping on my front door. Unusual for a sunny morning to have visitors. I peered out the window flap and saw that it was my new neighbour. “Don Juan, please come in. Sit and have some coffee. What can I do for you?” “Ricky, I’ve been…
