    Brit Expats In Spain Should Boycott Leftist Olive Press! 


    Some of you, expatriate patriots like me, may recall that we exposed what we then described as the

    …leftist garbage penned by some pinko klutz called Tim McNulty…

    Olive Press News Spain - Best Expat Newspaper in Spain

    …in a rag called ‘The Olive Press.’

    That was back in April, but the oleaginous extremist rag has again shown its true colours.

    Most of you will be aware that the Addled Swede Brat has been ‘stranded’ ( except that she isn’t – she could fly like normal people do!) in the Americas and is frothingly desperate to get to Europe, to shrill and scowl on her climate-panic hobby-horse at a conference in Spain.

    A mural on the side of a building depicts the Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg.

    Sure beats going to school and actually learning stuff!

    However, the extremists who run the The Olive Press have ‘stepped in to offer her a lift in an electric car from any of the ports she can make it to on the Iberian Peninsula, that could include Cadiz, Lisbon or A Coruna.’

     https://www.theolivepress.es/spain-news/2019/11/11/olive-press-offers-greta-thunberg-lift-to-key-spain-climate-summit/

    That’s their privilege, as with anybody who’s got more money than sense!

    But do British and other anglophone expats in Spain, who, in my experience, are not notably, in fact not at all, characterised by subversive sympathies or any leftist ideological allegiances, appreciate this pro-panicker generosity?

    Many would more likely agree with me that the Brat best be left to hoof it, then swim all the way to her destination.

    Brits and other sensible expats should boycott The Olive Press and any company that advertises therein.

    Exactly HOW Many Brexit U-Turns Have Happened? 


    My buddies and I are out for a drink in posh Kuningan, or Menteng.

    My round.

    “What’s it to be, guys, Heineken or Bintang?”

    Having decided, like all the rest, to order Bintang, I advise the bar-maid of our order. As she starts pouring, I change my mind.

    “Make that four Bintang and one Heineken, love!”

    Will the local newspaper report this development the next day as

    OldiesButGoodies-1

    ……..

    Market Share Shock – Expats in Jakarta change to Heineken!  

    ….

    Obviously not!

    If a tiny minority of a group change their minds about something, can ANY – even the most partisan –  media be justified in constructing a headline that makes it seem like a massive U-turn?  –

    Brexit-backing British nationals living in Spain told Channel 4 News they feel remorse for their decision as they face an uncertain future…

    Leave-backing expats in Spain regret their decision as Brexit looms …inews.co.ukFeb 11, 2019

    Now that headline is grotesquely, and probably deliberately, misleading…

    lies

    …suggesting that all the patriots who have retired from their UK jobs and decided, like me, that life in a hot sunny climate is a pleasant prospect, me in Jakarta, they to Spanish shores…

    …have u-turned on  their patriotic Leave decision and have now joined the Grovel Gang!

    But when you read the story below the headline, you quickly learn that the hacks have spoken to a mere handful of that expat community.

    No attempt was made to conduct any serious survey of expat opinion.

    It is highly unlikely that there has been any major shift in expat opinion.

    fake

    .

    Of course when  you read the whole ‘i-news’ piece and see that it wasn’t them that created this archetypal ‘Fake News’ but another, notoriously unsound, segment of the UK media…

    …you will NOT be surprised.

    ……

    Speaking of people changing, or not changing, their minds….

    …..whatever can we say about a man who year after year would not be pressured into abandoning his enthusiasm for Blood-Beast Adams the Sinn Fein/IRA terror boss…

    ….but, this month, this week, today, almost within a twinkling of an eye, threw overboard his public pledge to implement the decision of the British people on taking back their sovereignty from the Brussels Empire.

      Your prologue gives us an insight or two into your Jakarta life-style, sounds like you enjoy life, but the point you are making is loud and clear.
      Did Channel 4 bump into any expats there in Spain who have not changed their minds?
      Surely they must have, but they quote not a word from any Brit who has stayed true to the cause of independence.
      So biased reporting, but what else can we expact fom Channel 4?

      By the way, Ross, we just saw on BBC, their Spain reporter saying that he was in a Benidorm expat bar last night, where 6 out of 10 were Leave voters and wanted out – no deal or not.
      Must have been a different bar from Channel Four, yes?
