I`ve meet a few Spaniard`s who believe Spain is the arse of the world, Portugal being the said arse`s pile`s.

I do not own a property on Costa Esuri, nor do I like anywhere that has urbis full of Brits (and yes, that includes Benalmadena). By the way I visited CE a couple of years back so my opinion is an informed one.

Never been stung by a solicitor as Spanish OH prohibits me from using them.
See you are making the same mistake as a lot of the yuppies on Esuri made about Benalmadena.
Come and visit my little white Spainish village sometime. ;-))

Actually I think you are right. I forget how the saying goes exactly.....something along the lines of if Europe is a dog, then Spain is the dog's tail. Portugal is the pile of crap that gets left behind.

Again, Cleri, not my words.....just trying to remember how the saying goes!

Yeah, and the Irish are stupid, the Scottish tight, the Germans invade people, the Japanese have slitty eyes, the Chinese walk funny, the Welsh bugger sheep, all Muslims are suicide bombers and ALL Americans are fat...............


Just because the Spanish say something about someone don't make it right, they insult Roma day in day out, but if you ask the VERY few people on this forum who have first hand experience of the Roma they will tell you a very different story of them................

Good to see you took your Daily Hate attitude to Spain with you, I bet the Spanish love you!

They love me so much one decided to marry me.

I know not all sayings are true. Did I say that somewhere? It just so happens that I can see where the Spanish are coming from with their doggie analogy. You are entitled to think differently.

Despite this, you used it not only to high light an opinion but also to back one up..................

I met people like you the length and breadth of Spain, in fact, as many know on here, its one of the central reasons why I left a country I absolutely loved.
