What a refreshing change to hear of a winner at long last. I'm sure the tide will eventually change but the reaction we got from the Spanish to those of us who managed to get to the Spanish Property Road Show was not comforting.
I tried to confront Sra Corredor and she just turned and walked away as soon as she realized the way the conversation was going. I then literally grabbed the Spanish Ambassador (which immediately alerted two security guards who stayed there) and made it clear that it was an insult for them to come to the UK and try to convince people that buying property in Spain was completely safe. Three of us there told him of our difficulties and he appeared to be in total denial. He refused to believe we had won court cases and never got our money back. His closing words before he was whisked away by security were. "I'm sorry for you". I bet he lies awake at night worrying and feeling sorry about us..
Marta Andreasen MEP was there and she managed to spoil Sra Corredor's day with a fairly heated discussion in both Spanish and English which I was not able to get close enough to hear. I spoke to her later and she appeared to be interested in the figures I gave her regarding the 'Missing Millions' campaign of this thread. I am sending her more details at her request after giving me her card, so my efforts may not be in vain. There is a full report on the show from Keith Rule on the property show thread.
Sorry Tish back to you. Well done and you keep fighting. Your success is an inspiration to us all. It certainly cheers me up.
