AN OLIVE Press investigation has found that the British love affair with Spain is still going strong.
Our research contradicts a heavily-documented poll of 250 expatriates which concluded that 74 per cent of Britons in Spain were considering returning to the UK.
“It is difficult to get a clear conclusion from a survey of just 250 people, when an estimated one million Britons live in Spain. I could ask 250 people and get a different result every time.”
Indeed, in a survey for the Olive Press some 80 per cent of expatriates said they were still happy living in Spain.
Only 21 per cent said they wanted to go home.
Meanwhile, the British Consulate, as well as official tourist bodies confirmed our findings.
British Consul Steve Jones explained: “It is difficult to get a clear conclusion from a survey of just 250 people, when an estimated one million Britons live in Spain. I could ask 250 people and get a different result every time.”
