Andalusian anti-eviction law suspended by Constitutional Court

The CC has suspended the daft anti-eviction law of Andalucia. See, the Junta de Andalucia came up with a mad idea to boost popularity by pretending to help the unemployed who were about to have their homes repossessed.  (See Junta will repossess people’s homes to save them from the banks). The idea, forced through by the communist wing of the IU, coalition partners in the Andalucian government with the PSOE, is that if you have Continue reading Andalusian anti-eviction law suspended by Constitutional Court

Andalucian hotels: Staff levels will be “key” to star rating with new law

The Junta has announced a new hotel law for Andalusia in which star ratings will be awarded by points, instead of the current law which determines ratings by the services offered. The new law, says the Andalusian Minister for Magic, I’m sorry, Tourism and Commerce Rafael Rodríguez, has at its heart “quality and good service” and a key factor will be the number of employees a hotel has. “You cannot have good quality with robots, Continue reading Andalucian hotels: Staff levels will be “key” to star rating with new law

IU wants to up utility bills to pay for the poor in Andalucia

Commie Andalucian coalition partners the IU a proposing a bill which will tax utilities in order to pay for free water & elec for the poor. The idea is to tax the utilities (who can then pass the tax onto the consumers, ie, you and me) and the money will go into government coffers. Then, when Perico’s last burro shuffles off the mortal coil (possibly by stepping on his last egg producing hen), meaning he Continue reading IU wants to up utility bills to pay for the poor in Andalucia

Andalucia refuses to allow ranking within schools

Coz in Socialist Andalusia, we all have to be equal [ly poor, that is]. See, Madrid bought out a new law which aimed to shake up the educational system in Spain, which is run and organised by the regions. One of the changes was to allow the ranking of schools by performance, and within schools, ranking of students and teachers, so that bright students could, in theory, be fast tracked, and bad teachers sidelined (you Continue reading Andalucia refuses to allow ranking within schools

IU-Andalucia wants to expropriate land not used for 2 years and give it to the poor

The IU, the communist coalition partners of the PSOE in the Andalucian government, have proposed a new law that will allow for the expropriation of any “productive land which has not been used for its assigned social function” during the last two years. Such land, explains the proposed law, would be that should be dedicated to productive uses such as forestry, farm or ranching land. Or, indeed, my back garden. As a cited example by the IU, they Continue reading IU-Andalucia wants to expropriate land not used for 2 years and give it to the poor

Andalucia’s new President sworn in

Democracy was the only loser after Susana Diaz was voted in as the new President of Andalucia yesterday, during a confusing meeting in the regional Parliament where accusations of lying, corruption and blatant theft hang heavy over those present. The PSOE’s coalition partner, the communist Izquierda Unida, showed their normal firm grasp on things important by attempting to hijack the vote to force the region to vote against the use of military force in Syria. Continue reading Andalucia’s new President sworn in

Andalucian democracy was another pipedream – Griñán to quit by September but no elections!

President Griñán of Andalucia is expected to announced his resignation as leader of the PSOE party in Andalucia, and a timetable in which he will retire as President of Andalucia, as he becomes ever more mired in scandal over the Andalucian ERE slush fund allegations. He’ll “probably step down in September” says El Mundo, although we’ll know more later today. It’s generally accepted that since he’s about to be called to court to testify, and Continue reading Andalucian democracy was another pipedream – Griñán to quit by September but no elections!

Andalucian Democracy, PSOE style

So, for the first time ever the PSOE in Andaucia (the buggers who win every single election here) decided to hold elections to decide who would be the next leader to take them into the elections, after President Grinan announced he would step down then. Grinan was appointed by his predecessor, Chaves; who in turn was appointed by his predecessor, etc etc etc. For some reason, Grinan announced he would allow his party to hold Continue reading Andalucian Democracy, PSOE style

Where I see overdevelopment, the Junta sees opportunity!

The Junta has discovered that the golf capacity of Andalucía is for 1,14 million tourists a year, although the annual average of visitors is just 425.000. So, instead of saying that we’ve got three times as much golf courses as we need, the Junta has bravely stepped up and said “here’s an opportunity to cram another 700.000 tourists a year into Andalucía”. The report says it should be possible to play 5,24 million rounds of Continue reading Where I see overdevelopment, the Junta sees opportunity!
