    Oh,the irony!
    Talking of Irony your quite happy to live in a country that has far less 'diversity' due to its institutionalised racism passed down from the fascist generation that ruled up until the 70's......Do you feel that has benefited Spain?

    How's the protests in Majorca going? You know, the one which saw thousands of people take to the streets to demand that the Spanish Government stopped the high numbers of tourists visiting the island?

    Please supply me with any links you have regarding "institutionalised racism" in Spain (via pm as this is ever so slighly off-topic from Trump's cancelled UK visit).

    There was a widely publicised 5% fall in tourist numbers visiting Catalonia in Q4 last year, as a direct result of the political problems here since October 1st.Which is, of course, ironic in the context you mention and also completely unrelated to this thread on Trump.
    "The British government is free to make a decision about its participation in the World Cup," he said.

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    You don't think Trump should visit Britain because you claim he is racist.....We are just pointing out the Irony of someone living in Spain pointing the finger at Trump.

    I wont send you any PM details...British Black men being dragged down alleyways and beaten by the police for the crime of walking down a Spanish street.

    You should look into the missing 300,000 Spanish children that were stolen by Doctors and the Church and then sold to wealthy 'more suitable' families. It was still going on whilst you worked for Opus Dei, so I can understand why you are in denial of the greatest crime in peace time Western Europe.

    My reasons for being glad that the 45th President has cancelled his scheduled visit to the UK go far beyond his latest offensive outburst.

    (You've mentioned these other two pieces of " information" before.Possibly I lead a sheltered life but I've only ever seen one overt instance of racism towards a black person in all the time I've lived in Spain.

    I mentioned your Opus Dei story to an Irish Catholic colleague at the LFB-another long term resident,like me- some time ago now and he'd never heard anything about it either.

    PS .As a life-long atheist I have ,of course,never worked for Opus Dei).

    The only irony is the fact that you've mentioned Catalonia, when that was totally irrelevant & unrelated to the discriminative protests in MAJORCA

    Perhaps you should speak to some working class black men, they have different stories than that nice professional you met once at a dinner party.

    You did claim to work for a college (or similar) owned by Opus Dei. Panorama did an investigation on the missing babies. If you google 'missing Spanish babies' right at the top is a BBC News report.....Which I'm sure you will post on your next visit....No need to apologise its just prove that governments can and do cover up huge scandals and crimes with surprising ease.

    Actually, there have also been similar (well documented) protests in Barcelona.FYI, Majorca is part of Cataluña.

    Why are you right-wingers deliberately trying to take this thread off topic? We should be talking about the 45th President's cancelled visit to the UK.

    The incident I was referring to happened in a bar in Gracia (very much a working class part of Barna back in the day).FYI,I don't do dinner parties.

    There's obviously a difference between working for a Business School run by Opus and working for Opus Dei directly.

    .
    Lols look at you trying your hardest to ignore & twist the point.

    Catalonians were protesting as they wanted independence. As you well know.

    The inhabitants of Majorca were protesting about the volume of tourists visiting their island.

    Big deal. He is throwing the mob a bone and they will be smugly satisfied whilst his real agenda continues. Like creating a war with North Korea and backing Israeli expansion in the ME

    Whether he cuts a ribbon in London or not makes no difference to us but will gain him further support from the paranoid Americans who vote for him.

    You still denying the 300,000 "ninos robados" ......There you go that should help your research

    Just trying to add some balance to the usual Trump bashing. You shouldn't throw stones in you live in a glass house. Still no condemnation towards those discriminative protesters in Majorca?

    I suggest you have a look at this link from The Torygraph:-http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/ne...protests-grow/

    The perpetrators of this thoughless crime were CUP (Anti-capitalist+pro-independence) activists.

    What you probably don't know is that Majorca residents habitually vote for the PP (People's Party),which is the centre-right government in Madrid and strongly against Catalan nationalism.

    Quite frankly I'm unaware of the protests you're talking about.Got a link?

    You do realise that there can be more than one thing that people protest about in a city?
