  1. I give this cunt the benefit of the doubt, as maybe her claims are about her problems of mobility and the travel agency not booking the correct hotel. And the fact that she's as old as Tutankhamon and maybe she is losing her mind. If not... she's a cunt. Nanna, 81, claims Benidorm holiday was ruined because there were 'too many Spaniards' 13 August 2018, 13:23 By Emma Gritt 6K The OAP was left in tears as there were no English tribute acts at her hotel. A fuming British OAP claims her Benidorm holiday was ruined because her hotel had 'too many Spaniards in it' - and there were no English tribute bands. PUBLICIDAD inRead invented by Teads Freda Jackson, 81, says she was left in tears at the end of her two-week trip because of the "rude" Spaniards, and has questioned why they don't holiday elsewhere. The Retired care assistant said: “The hotel was full of Spanish holidaymakers and they really got on our nerves because they were just so rude. “One evening a Spanish guy nearly knocked me flying and he just walked off without even apologising. Freda has gone public after Thomas Cook failed to refund her holiday from hell (Image: SWNS) "The entertainment in the hotel was all focused and catered for the Spanish - why can’t the Spanish go somewhere else for their holidays?” Grandmother-of-six Freda and her 61-year-old friend paid a total of £1,133 for the all-inclusive stay at Benidorm's Poseidon Playa hotel, but claim that they were not informed it is a predominantly Spanish hotel. They also claim that the hotel is on an incline when they had specifically said their mobility issues meant they needed a hotel on a level surface. In a move that wouldn't seem out of place in ITV comedy Benidorm, the furious OAPs demanded a full refund or a free trip from Thomas Cook to make up for their overly Spanish trip to Spain - but were horrified to be just offered a £75 gift voucher each. The hotel is popular with locals - much to Freda's rage (Image: Thomas Cook) Freda, who lives in Blackburn, said: “I have never complained about a holiday before - but this one was a disaster from start to finish. “My friend and I paid for it from our pensions and it was a struggle trying to fund it over 12 months and the holiday was totally ruined - I cried after. "We wanted to go somewhere on flat ground and not in the hills because we have mobility issues. “To top it off once we got to reception they told us we had been put on the 14th floor, thankfully we were moved to the second floor, and that it was 42 steps down to the hotel’s swimming pool." The pair travelled 1,500 miles from Manchester Airport to Alicante on May 10, after not being notified by Thomas Cook that the dates of their flights had changed. The Poseidon Playa was 'teeming with rude Spaniards' (Image: Thomas Cook) Freda, who has previously visited Greece, Turkey, Portugal and Tenerife, claims Thomas Cook ‘mis-sold’ and ‘ruined’ her dream holiday. She said there were no reps on the holiday who they could complain to about the trip - so instead Ms Jackson submitted a letter of complaint to Thomas Cook. Thomas Cook bosses initially offered Freda and her friend a £75 holiday voucher as compensation for the ‘disappointing’ trip abroad. But after declining the initial 'goodwill gesture' made by the travel company, they made an improved offer of £566 to be split between Freda and her friend.
  2. I guess this is a cultural thing? In Europe this is normal.
  3. It's very dangerous as now it's proven that it works. And it works big time. You spread lies on immigration and refugees and terrorists and you get millions of votes from stupid racists citizens. It's worked in Germany, UK, Italy, Hungary, France, USA... In Spain the conservative party is at its lowest and since last month the campaign against immigrants is full force. In only this month racists people are appearing everywhere!!!!
  4. The moment this happens, many problems will be solved. I don't understand why media outlets take responsibility for inaccuracies and harmful material and social platforms don't, especially when those pages have been active for YEARS.
  5. Well, it happens in times with extremist ideas. Look at Europe in the 30s, when the Nazis labelled themselves "socialist" and claimed to be towards the workers. While in fact they just wanted to get richer and richer stepping on weaker population. In Spain we've been like this for 5 years with all this Catalonian mess and corruption junk. Now the conservatives, who are the most corrupted group, is blaming migrants for our problems! Any visceral idea that gives a blind vote is used. It can be immigration now, because it is the easy target, but it can go towards any minority. ANYONE OF US can be the next. It may be gays, or people from certain religions, or nationality, or ethnic background... Women too. It is a dangerous time that is leading to some "uncharted" (if we don't count those horrible 30s) territory.
  6. Well, I am trying Scotland too. And Wales! I even sent a CV to Perth To be fair, I guess i'm wasting my time, as my experience is very valid but no precisely to find a job abroad. I think I have to get used to the fact that I'm stuck in my city and my own country. My profile and age is absolutely uninteresting for international markets. Regarding elites having media, it is called DESPERATION. Never in human history have been such a big amount of news being published, we are overflowed with information but it is getting more and more difficcult to control it. People under 25 years old NEVER open a newspaper and barely go to some big media outlets. They share news, get influenced by Twitter or find information through Google. That makes SEO incredibly important but what for? How do you control what people want to search? That, coupled with the amount of fake news and lies intentionally spread through social media make elites and traditional press DESPERATE to control whatever they are still able to control. That means that newspaper, radiostations and televisions are embarassing themselves each day, mantaining an agenda that is uninteresting for most of citizens or that is not portraying the real issue. I mean, I was precisely listening to the BBC last week and they spent 20 minutes in a report on how the rising of card payment in nordic countries is affecting the coins given to beggars. I mean, can you be MORE ELITIST? I was appalled 20 munutes! Meanwhile, real problems are swept under the carpet everywhere.
  7. The hate speech against migrants and such is hitting hard now Spain and, frankly, I am appalled at how stupid people can be. I am sure that those who voted yes to Brexit for xenophobic reasons still would do the same, as they don't care of consequences or simply think that "leftists" are overreacting. I hate this situation nowadays in all countries where we seem to be in the extremes of ideas, as if there was no common place. I feel sad about many things in the political landscape of the world right now...
  8. So today, after a motion of censure stupid corrupt extreme conservative Rajoy is finally GONE and socialist Pedro Sanchez is our new president!!!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Let's hope Sanchez can make decisions, as his only support are leftist Podemos (good!!!!) but selfish separatists who are always messing around and the main reasons why out of fear people are still supporting Rajoy. If we're lucky maybe now the Catalonia mess can finally be solved politically and Spain is again a modern country with fresh ideas as we were untill 2010.
  9. Somehow when it comes to watching domination between two men, it seems as if both of them had agreed. While in the case of women, it recalls all those other situations where the women are intimidated and opressed. I guess that is the question. In Tumblr now there is that trend of pages with gay porn that focus on stright men being superior and calling gay "fag" and "inferior" and posting violent scenes (that in fact are just porn scenese, but are posted in that context) and it gets equally uncomfortable. Many demons comes to mind when you suddenly get to that post in your feed.
  10. Well hetero porn is shockingly prone to degrading women to an extent that even me, and I'm not a woman, find it incredibly violent.
  11. No wonder. Nobody knows how he could pass all the Law exams in only 2 years. The second he stepped into the political party, he magically passed all exams at the university What about his degree in Harvard that later was in fact done in a village near Madrid? The Conservatives in Spain are THE WORST OF THE HORRORS!!!!

    But now is different. You have that as a pretty piece. Back then it was THE ONLY way to enjoy it. I had such a bad experience with Watermark that when The Celts was finally reissued I bought the vinyl and the first listen I recorded it in cassette, so I knew I could enjoy the album without the horrid sounds that would came in time.
  18. Oh dear journalism is gone to the fucked pits for so long!!!!!
  19. So what is happening, guys??? Are they resigning because they want May to fall, so there's a new general election and the new PM will support a harder Brexit? Or are they resigning because this is a mess and nobody wants to be near the shit? What's really happening????????
  20. I'm planning on moving to the UK, guys. It all depends on my husband. We have a friend there and he may get a job in South London. He would go there and I may go with him, depending how BAD the newspaper where i'm working is going. Things are so bad with traditional press that I'd rather get some negociation with the firm and get some payment and leave. I would go with him to South London if I can't find anything else (after more than one year trying different things with EU agencies and such, I think my profile as a professional is completely uninteresting to everyone). That said, Brexit is coming. Maybe we go there and after the end of March they kick us out!

    I like Enya It's absurd to have her in vinyl though! Back then the worst album in vinyl were the ambient ones because all the atmosphere disappeared if the needle started to do weird sounds. I recall my joy when I could replace The Celts and Watermark from vinyl to CD.
  23. Are singers in Russia arrested for giving the finger???
