Watchdog - Houses In Spain

Recommended Posts

Watchdog this evening. Now actually. Houses in Spain being knocked down.......Its on now

Quite frankly, if the local government gave planning permission then the houses shouldn't be knocked down without compensation, but the people who gave out illegal planning permission should be thrown in jail for a very long time and have their assets seized.

You cannot tell me for one minute that the regional governments didn't know this was going on on the scale that it did.

Because its got lovely weather, a fantastic culture, and beautiful geography?

If corrupt officials are a fantastic culture, then they certainly have it.

Ha ha ha! You're quite right, but you obviously don't know how things work in Spain...not only did local government know what was

happening, so did regional government and, more importantly, so did national government. Spain is an extremely corrupt county,

everybody had their snouts in the property trough for years and years (there are currently 970,000 empty new build properties in Spain and, you know what...thye're still building!) and, trust me, only a very small fraction of Spain's dodgy dealings in property have come to light, Spains banks may have avoided the US subprime crisis, but they have a massive domestic subprime crisis of their own but, up to this point, they have, with government connivance, managed to cover it up. Watch this space!

Not just the regional officials, just what the hell were the government thinking? You have an economy, large parts of which are reliant on tourism, as well as areas developed solely for tourism attracting retirees and money from around Europe and a whole service industry that that involves from intial build onwards.

They let this shit fester, their country's reputation really is in the can for this - well for those who bother to read about it.

we and all others dependent on mortgage lenders have also covered up our own subprime crises. its why state after state has run out of money and the ability to borrow.

It's win:win for the local government. Bungs from the builders and jobs for the locals when they are putting them up, then when the tide turns, you get a bung from the demolition firm who wins the contract, and best of all, your own property (and that of many of your constituents) increases in value each time they demolish a property owned by a foreigner.
