  1. Hope he can put some pressure regarding the pending demolitions of ex-Brits villa’s in Spain.

    This would be an opportune moment for a minister of the British government to voice it’s views regarding demolition and to apply pressure on the Spanish government and on the Junta de Andalusia to waver the demolition and to grant legal statues to villas concerned. But don’t hold your breath too long.

  2. He won’t be speaking with anybody from the Spanish administration. So, difficult to see what “pressure” he can apply. Maybe he can stand at the border with a megaphone ?
