The British government is to trigger the infamous Article 50 on Wednesday 29th of this month. This is the mechanism to begin the UK’s departure from the EU. It should apparently take two years to achieve. Maybe.

Irelanda and Spain: Literary links

17 Agosto 2017  Sección; Especiales 808 votos

IT IS a commonplace that the Irish-Spanish connections is venerable and persistent, although one suspects that it barely surfaces in the consciousness of the Irish tourists who for the last quarter-century have been descending on the Costa Brava and the Costa del Sol.  In this century alone the literature links are of surprising profusion and I propose for a month or two to consider some of them.

Following on from last week’s editorial on ‘turismofobia’, we look at the difference between short term tourism and long term residence. Where the average tourist is in Spain for five days, where his holiday spend is largely retained by his tour-operator in his country of origin and where his loyalty towards Spain is low. By contrast, we who live in Spain as foreigners know full well that we are here for the long term, that we are more valuable to the economy and, as well, far more loyal to our locality than the tourists.

Tourism brings untold wealth and a huge number of jobs to Spain – yet there are now some voices raised against this summer onslaught.

Two weeks holiday in Portugal has made a pleasurable break from Paradise. Spain is a wonderful place to live, but a short time away can help put things in better perspective.

We are often guilty of putting ourselves in the imaginary position of the dogs and the cats here, or even the bulls. So many pious remarks about how they are mistreated, or tied up, or end up facing a matador in his suit of lights. It’s a rare community that doesn’t have an animal protection society staffed by volunteers and we even have an animalist political party, the PACMA, which currently enjoys the support of around 300,000 voters. Animals are without a voice and perhaps they need more protection, and a champion to defend them. Especially those poor superannuated hunting greyhounds.

New Research highlights the extent of women’s homelessness

 

July 11th, 2017 – Growing numbers of women throughout Europe are experiencing homelessness according to new research published by Trinity academic, Dr Paula Mayock. In the Dublin region, 47% of individuals who are currently homeless are women, a figure well above the European norm, which stands at between 20% and 33% in most countries. Nationally, women comprise 42% of the total adult homeless population. Women’s homelessness is now a major social problem in Ireland. Homelessness policy, however, has largely failed to engage with the notion that women who become homeless have distinct experiences.

With monoculture – the practice of planting a single, extended crop – comes a higher profit, but at the same more risk. The gigantic and extended olive tree population of Spain could become the next cash-crop to be in danger. As Iberia Nature says, ‘...Spain is by some way the country with the highest number of olive trees (more than 300 million), in the world and is nowadays the world's leading olive and olive oil producer and exporter.

In the eighties, a bumper-sticker plastered on the back of a number of vehicles in the USA’s most intriguing state would read ‘Welcome to California, Now Go Home’. Behind the wheel of the old rust-bucket bought from a dealer in Detroit (where else?), This Writer felt a bit of an interloper driving around The Golden State with his travellers cheques, his snappy British accent and his half-empty jar of Ovaltine.
