    But, but, they are SPAIN!

    How the mighty land bubble burst, mainly due to the crooks in the local government in concert with crooked lawyers, laying waste to the money of expats of all varieties.

    This was done by selling them land for building which was zoned 'green' and could not be built on. Of course when the expats built their dream homes on the site they were (after a legal fight) bulldozed into the ground.

    38,000 of them have been caught in this. It is estimated that 15 years is required to run through all the legal twists and turns before they will get judgement. Many will never live to see that come about. Even when judgement is made in their favour and a court order obtained to receive reparations there will probably be no money to pay them.

    And then people asked us why we were going to Uruguay and not Spain.

    Yes I'm afraid any sympathy I may have had has been completely removed by their bullying of the Gibraltarians. Stuff them and I hope they bring the Euro crashing down with them.

    You dodged a bullet there.

    The problem is that if the Euro crashes we are all in for a rough time.

    6, you may be correct, but as we in deep fry right now, it will make little difference,
    But our trade would pick up,
    The commonwealth would be happy for British trade,
    And Europe can go west. politely.

    Europe will destroy everything british.

    “Europe will destroy everything British.”

    We are very close to that at present, but 'call me Dave' and his bitch Clegg do not want us to know that.

    As for the referendum: very little chance indeed.

    A winch is a mechanical device that is used to pull in (wind up) or let out (wind out) or otherwise adjust the “tension” of a rope or wire rope (also called “cable” or “wire cable”). In its simplest form it consists of a spool and attached hand crank. In larger forms, winches stand at the heart of machines as diverse as tow trucks, steam shovels and elevators. The spool can also be called the winch drum. More elaborate designs have gear assemblies and can be powered by electric, hydraulic, pneumatic or internal combustion drives. Some may include a solenoid brake and/or a mechanical brake or ratchet and pawl device that prevents it from unwinding unless the pawl is retracted.

    Whinge (Read more:
    intr.v. Chiefly British, whinged, whing•ing, whing•es.
    To complain or protest, especially in an annoying or persistent manner.

    More than two hundred years ago 'winching' was used as WINCE. It has not been in common use since around that time.

    An example: “your lack of intellect make me wince”.

    BTW My kind of English originates from England, not some mongrelised Spanish, Italian and German shithole of a ‘nation’. Yes, you are in Australia, mi culo.

    Try the Oxford Pocket Dictionary if you can get it in the paradise formed by TMBOA.
