So why would AENA agree to close St Javier before they have been awarded the contract to run Corvera? If, in the usual inimitable Spanish style, the tender process for the contract has already been agreed with AENA, pre-tender, what is the point of undertaking a expensive tender operation and wasting the time of other operators (if any are daft enough to get involved with this farce)?

Alberto Garre is guaranteeing the staff at St.Javier employment at Corvera, but they refuse to go and the same politician has said that ‘Corvera will open – but not at any cost’

With the land Corvera is built on still to be paid for, the €182m load to be serviced at €22,000 per day, potentially hundreds of millions of Euro damages being sought under 10 civil cases against Murcia by Aeromur and the compensation to be paid for the closure of St Javier........... what level of debt constitutes ‘any cost’?

Is it because of the impending elections that we have suddenly found a magic solution – if so can we use the same formula for the almost defunct Paramount cock-up?

The Paramount project is at the same stage it was at four years ago, still searching the world for funding, but this is now a stale deal for any lender. It really is incredible that Premursa think that any serious global funder would ever consider investing money in Spain with the world's media entertaining other countries with tales of  the Corvera, Castilleon, Cuidad Real ghost airport farces, the weekly reports of massive corruption, absence of planning rules, red tape and incompetence at every level of government.

Only massive change in attitude and legislation can drag Spain into the 21st century and only then will the rest of the world be prepared to risk investment here. It's a terrible shame as Spain is a wonderful country with so much to offer and could become not only a leader in the EU but also a very wealthy country with the right transparent stewardship.

That's a fair synopsis, Spain is certainly doing themselves no favours currently and is driving some expats away, particularly from Murcia with their Inheritance Tax laws.

I actually went to Corvera today, making a short detour to see if there was on signs of life, but no just an overwhelming aroma of moth balls.  The whole place was "dead" which brings a new meaning to the phrase "terminal building".

Corvera is a pretty boring place, semi rural, but with a few belching chimneys close by - hardly touristy.  Whereas San Javier couldn't be nicer.  It all seems the wrong way round to me, but I know that's being far too simplistic.

Still roll on 2nd April for Corvera...but I forget which year.  As for Paramount, I dunno either, the 2nd of never?


Don't argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
