  1. Don’t you just love a bad story tedious Fred (as usual). Noone has ever said the crisis is over. What a stupid thing to say (as usual). Maybe houses selling more in certain areas. Tonto. (as usual)

  2. The region of Andalucia has been the architect of its own downfall to a large extent and needs to take responsibility for it. The PSOE-led Junta de Andalucia have run the region badly for over 30 years, syphoning off vast sums of money that was meant for job creation and skills training, creating the so called illegal property situation scaring off potential investors and being about as business unfriendly as you can get. The only hope is that the business friendly C’s will have a positive influence since forming a pact with the hopeless PSOE. Spain as a whole has some way to go on this issue too.

  3. Derek, you are badly out of touch. Rajoy, in his recent State of the Nation address, congratulated himself and his government for taking Spain out of the crisis. Truth is, Spain still has severe poverty issues. Rajoy has been berated several times for saying the crisis is over whilst people are still suffering, and he even had to correct one speech to correct that statement. You have clearly not been keeping up-to-date with these reports.
