Dublin.– Language learning has the potential to build empathy between groups in conflict and help revise destructive understandings of history, according to researchers in Trinity College Dublin, who have conducted a study of the Turas Irish-language centre in East Belfast.

Editorial:

As more former members of the Partido Popular’s hierarchy are falling from grace (Zaplana, Juan Cotino and Fernández de Moya so far this week, and Pablo Casado under investigation for his fake master’s), the biggest story in the right-wing news remains the house that the Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias has bought with his wife (Podemos speaker Irene Montero) and their unborn twins. The house is rather grand (pictures here), with a pool and a garden and is located on the edge of Madrid in an expensive neighbourhood. It’s not so much the price – 600,000€ – that’s galling or even that they have taken out a huge mortgage to pay for it, but the duplicity of a leader of the masses buying a palace rather than living in a garret in a poor part of Madrid.

It seems that every week we have polls. The latest ones of interest are those of the type that foresee ‘the intention to vote if elections were held now’. Nationally, the latest poll gives the two new parties (we quote El País) the leadership, with C’s (Ciudadanos) with a nine point lead over UP (Union Podemos), but both of these are in front of the PP, lying in third place, and just behind them in fourth, the PSOE.

Are the European foreigners leaving... or staying? Are there more of us or less? Can you trust the official numbers handled by the Authorities as ‘Gospel’? Of course, no one knows the answers to any of these except for the last question. The National Institute of Statistics (the INE) provides an exhaustively detailed (and hopelessly wrong) number of foreign residents by adding up the information found on the town hall census (the padrón). Here is the information, by nationality, for January 2018. There are, for example, 240,934 Britons registered in Spain... and 673,017 Romanians.

As we see elsewhere, the threat of new technologies or services is sometimes met head-on in Spain. The taxi drivers and the hoteliers both angry with their new competitors Uber and Airbnb, and both able to do something about it (by which we mean, talk to the legislators). Another business that is fearful of new forms of competition is the daily newspaper. This, again, thanks to technology. Why read one source (for a euro fifty), with much bulk that is inevitably left unread anyway, when you can read as many sources as you want, of things that interest you, on your computer or Smartphone, for free?

The Partido Popular are now looking for a replacement for Cristina Cifuentes following the scandal surrounding her master’s degree – sometimes known by the press as ‘Mastergate’. Cifuentes was the clean broom that swept away the years of corruption in the party, with her job as president of the Madrid community.

Editorial:

The story of whether Cristina Cifuentes had somehow claimed a fake master’s degree from the Juan Carlos University leads the news this week. Cifuentes is the President of the Community of Madrid since 24 June 2015, following on from the disgraced Ignacio González. She is a ‘clean brush’ after the González wave of corruption.

Such a mess in Catalonia. Following a document sent to the United Nations human rights committee stating that the Spanish government has “violated Carles Puigdemont’s right to participate in political life by forcing him to be in exile” (here), news comes that the UN has accepted the complaint and has asked Spain to answer. The whole performance could be dragged out for another twelve months. Puigdemont was arrested at the Danish/German frontier this Sunday and his car was found to have a geo-locator fixed to it by the Spanish secret service. This whole situation is understandably raising tensions in Catalonia.

    Feijoo y Mar Sánchez Sierra convierten el viaje a Argentina en una burla a los gallegos/as y "cortinas de humo" para losastilleros de Galicia. En países donde la política se parece mas a la “cosa nostra” como México, país que bien conocen Mar Sánchez Sierra y Feijóo  por sus idas y venidas relacionadas con los contratos navales de PEMEX, donde las cortinas de humo se utilizaron como  distractores para "mentir" a Galicia y los Gallegos/as que ahora no solo investiga la Fiscalía de Mexico, si no que también  se sumó la Fiscalía de EE.UU en la que aparecen presuntamente implicados los altos cargos de la Xunta según diversos medios  de comunicación... El líder gallego lanza su "última carta marcada como clavo ardiendo " con el único propósito de afianzarse 4 años más en el  poder de la Xunta de Galicia, ( Feijóo según las encuestas pierde la Xunta..+) burlándose literalmente no solo de Galicia y lo que representa, también de sus ciudadanos/as  que nunca en sus 10 años de gobierno han visto cumplir una sola promesa desde que llegó al poder, destruir sí, comenzó por la sanidad-sergas y así está...+Solo[…]
