    My Dad worked at Butlins.. It was the same attitude there.

    Well away from the bleeding obvious resorts, visitors or mainly welcome because they tend to be less drunk and disorderly and more interested in their surroundings.... I.M.H.O.
    You don't have to go far from the Benidorm type resorts to see a different Spain. I worked for a few weeks in Reus, which is 5 minutes down the road from Salou. The 2 places are totally different, as you say, the British tourists were also totally different to the ones in Salou.

    At the time (1990ish) the double decker buses used to ferry out the idiots on their very cheap holidays. Some of them were unbelievable, they made Orcs look sophisticated.

I don't judge a country's people by the actions and statements of politicians who are seeking re-election. I would be mortified if they judged me by the actions and words of our idiotic government.
    You mean the very people who support the actions and statements of the very politicians and government who slate and harass the Brits?
    Just wandering around and loving it.

    No, I mean the very people who are so welcoming and friendly and who accept that I no more represent the xenophobic government that happens to rule the country I live in any more than they do

    Anyway... Back to the Santander bank thread, whilst in Spain we don't withdraw money from Santander banks as their charges are one of the highest we've come across. This includes using our UK Santander bank card.

    We have used our Santander zero credit card with no problems. Don't get cash out but no fee for euro purchases.

    A grassy arse to the Spanish foreign minister for this very welcome outbreak of common sense.

We used to go to Spain almost every year but since they started making things difficult (Illegally) for the people of Gibralter (Uncensored by the EU) I have not been back to spain and will not be back again. Nor have I for many years bought Spanish goods or produce. There are plenty of decent countries to visit and buy from. Why continuously allow ourselves to be humiliated and denigrated by the Spanish?....Go somewhere else.
    Well all i can say is thank god you dont come to Spain any more,
