THE number of people out of work in Spain has risen to more than 5 million people for the first time.
The government said there was no quick fix, with the economy expected to slump even further this year.

Why are you speaking in a foreign language - 'traffic congestion'? 'rush-hour'? We don't have those around here in this part of Andalucía although Manolo and his mula sometimes cause a bit of delay, it is normally no more than half a minute!

Hey ! We're not all over here on a permanent holiday, kicking back with a San Miguel and a paella you know!

Some of us (admittedly fewer than before as demonstrated by the above article) actually work for a living

Some of us have all ready done our time (51 years in my case) and are now taking a wee rest (until SWMBO says there something else I've got to do, such as saw some more logs, etc.).

BTW can't stand beer especially gnat's urine and paella is not my favourite. Now give me aguardiente and ajiaco santafereño, fríjoles antioqueños, or sancocho Antioquia then that would be a different matter. As far as dishes from Spain are concerned, I very much like sopa de picadillo, jamón iberico and many others.

They should just rename "Spain" to "Titanic".

I'm sure I read that they were building a new ship under the Titanic name
