PM protests over Gibraltar shots David Cameron has protested to his Spanish counterpart after shots were fired at a jet-skier off Gibraltar. The Prime Minister confronted Mariano Rajoy during a Brussels summit and demanded an explanation for the "illegal incursion" into British territorial waters. At a press conference, Mr Cameron said he wanted to make sure a full investigation took place and it was important that countries followed international law. "I did raise this with the Spanish Prime Minister," he said. "I think this is a totally unacceptable episode and I made that clear. "I think it is very important that people on Gibraltar know that we support them, we support their sovereignty." He added: "We need to find out more about what happened but from what I have heard... it is not acceptable." It is understood that Mr Cameron "made a beeline" for Mr Rajoy soon after arriving at the summit on Thursday. In the incident on Sunday, a Spanish police boat pursued Dale Villa while he was on his jet-ski nea ...
From IceCap Asset Management, February 2013, The Worst Is Over The dark ages were an awful time. Considering the brightest days delivered constant warfare, the burning of books, and the fear of barbarians, no one ever looked forward to the darkest days. Fast forward 1,600 years, and the darkest days of the European debt crisis are finally over - not because the bad debt has been written off or due to the consolidation of all debt, but simply because everyone has said so. First up to declare the worst is over was European Commission Vice President Ollie Rehn who announced “the worst is over”. Next up, everyone’s favourite socialist president Francois Hollande of France confirmed “tonight I have the confirmation that the worst is behind us”. The French President was then confidently followed by the meticulous German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble who droned “we have the worst behind us“. And then to leave no doubt whatsoever, the scandal plagued Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy convin ...

Spain doesn’t need financial aid “for now”: At a press conference in Madrid, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajay said ‘We are not thinking of asking the European Central Bank to intervene and buy bonds in the secondary market, but we can’t rule it out in the future”. The comments come after a difficult year for Spain’s financial markets and reflect the tough months the country faces at the start of 2013.

Wed Oct 3, 2012 8:02am EDT * FTSEurofirst 300 down 0.1 pct, Euro STOXX 50 down 0.1 pct * Spanish stocks under pressure on bailout uncertainties * U.S. jobs data seen as potential positive catalyst By Blaise Robinson PARIS, Oct 3 (Reuters) - European stocks edged down on Wednesday, adding to the previous session's losses, weighed down by doubts about whether Spain will soon request a bailout and further signs of a slowdown in China and Europe. At 1126 GMT, the FTSEurofirst 300 index of top European shares was down 0.1 percent at 1,100.73 points in relatively low volumes. Spanish stocks were among the biggest losers, with BBVA down 1 percent and Banco Santander down 0.9 percent. Late on Tuesday, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said a request for a bailout was not imminent, denying reports that the country was set to officially ask for help at the weekend. European stocks have surged since late July, when European Central Bank head Mario Draghi said he was ready to do "whatever it takes" to save the eur ...

Katharine Ainger: Spain's government is right to fear the public reaction to this new round of suffering mandated by the financial markets
[...]Meanwhile, in his heroic denials that a bailout is even necessary, Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy increasingly resembles Saddam Hussein's information minister continuing to insist the Americans were fleeing and killing themselves by the hundreds at the city's gates, even as Baghdad was falling. Rajoy's strategy of denial has form. In June he insisted Spanish banks would not need to be bailed out, two weeks before they were. This paternalistic, old-fashioned attempt to mould public opinion in the face of reality seems to indicate that, as many local commentators have observed, the Spanish administration is operating "as if it didn't know the internet existed".

Spanish Prime Minister: Euro 2012 win was awesome -
the financial situation in the 17-nation eurozone is getting worse. Greek voters narrowly averted disaster 10 days ago when they elected a new government that doesn’t want to ditch the euro, but the news from elsewhere is dire. Spain is now officially asking for a $125 billion bailout of its banks, which have been devastated by real estate loans gone sour, and it’s having serious difficulties in the bond market, where rates for its sovereign debt have hit a peak of about 7%. Mariano Rajoy, the Spanish Prime Minister, told parliament on Wednesday that EU leaders need to come up with urgent mechanisms to enable indebted countries to refinance more easily, warning that, “we can’t finance at current prices for too long.” Italy’s borrowing costs are also rising again, hitting 4.7% this week for two-year bonds. Meanwhile Cyprus became the fifth EU nation to formally request help this week, because its banks, too, are in trouble as a result of the substantial amounts of Greek sovereign bonds that the ...

There's no more Uganda & Kenya, thanks to the Spanish Prime Minister & Korean Air.
How could Mariano Rajoy,the Spanish Prime Minister compare Spain to Uganda.Know people will impute different meanings into what he has said but it is totally unacceptable.
I once posted on how scary Uganda is increasingly portrayed in the west. About how it is used to scare white kids from misbehaving. So they tell them to stop or they'll get banished to the jungles of Uganda in 'central Africa'. With the recent text by the Spanish Prime Minister citing a best-worst case scenario in Spain-Uganda (respectively), I am beginning to think that UGANDA is in the fast track of being the next ZIMBABWE.
In his text message to the Finance minister, the Spanish Prime Minister provoked an outrageous online debate citing that “…Spain is not Uganda”
Most of My Ugandan friends are upset about our country being used as a euphemism for a failed state! - Spanish Prime Minister to Finance Minister- "Spain is not Uganda". I dont understand why. Perhaps truth is bitter!
Politicians, traders and consumers will have their eyes on the markets today, hoping for a sign that the €100bn (£80bn) financial lifeline for Spain's banks would – as the Spanish Prime Minister optimistically predicted – save the credibility of the euro.

Hi guys. Just wan't to share this translation of the speech of Spanish Prime Minister Luis Zapatero when Spain, one of the largest Christian nations in the world, approved *** marriage in 2005. A very enlightening and touching piece. [When the Spanish parliament took its historic vote legalizing both *** marriage and adoption of children by *** couples, Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero -- who put the full prestige of his office and party behind passage of the *** human rights legislation -- made one of the most remarkable speeches in favor of full equality for those with same-sex hearts ever delivered by a head of government anywhere. Here are excerpts from Zapatero's speech ] "We are not legislating, honorable members, for people far away and not known by us. We are enlarging the opportunity for happiness to our neighbors, our co-workers, our friends and, our families: at the same time we are making a more decent society, because a decent society is one that does not humiliate ...
