    Probably a remainer.

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    she with mobility problems was on the 14th floor, there was no Thomas Cook Rep available. The entertainment was all in Spanish.

    They put her in a local's hotel and didn't supply the usual extras they supply.

    Seems she is entitled to complain about a package holiday without the full package. The papers picked up on the complaint that she had found some of the other guests rude.

    Sadly I find the Spanish a bit rude compared to the French, Italians & even the Germans. Get a few drinks in them though they are much better.

    I've just been on holiday to Benidorm, and yes some of the Spanish were rude. Some Germans and some Welsh. Most Spanish were lovely but they have their own chavs like everyone else.

    Helps that my wife is Spanish and my kids bilingual though. Incidentally, her cousins visited and they all congratulated me on the UK voting leave!

    So they don't like you huh?
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I've found that the Spanish on the whole are lovely people. Now the Chinese and their smoking over the breakfast buffet, well that's another issue.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
