Hypocrisy in Spain, petrol and political interests

Hypocrisy in Spain, petrol and political interests

Fuerteventura

Jose Manuel Soria, the new Minister of Industry in Spain, has stopped the development of renewable energies statewide, suspending bonuses and opting for the development of fossil and nuclear energies… Dangerous? Maybe, and more if we think of REPSOL, a controversial company due to its possible abuses with local populations (South America) when searching for new sources and now, a company supported by Soria to drill off the coast near Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, the most beautiful islands of that paradise called Canaries.

Apart from the unacceptable environmental impact and touristic damage, main activity of these two islands, the major discussion in Spain comes from the hypocrisy of reactivating oil explorations in the Canarias islands while in the Mediterranean Sea, between Valencia and Ibiza, he is doing everything possible to cancel a similar exploration.

The truth seems to be: leaders of his party (PP) in Valencia and Ibiza promised during the elections to stop oil explorations in the Mediterranean Sea (precisely, for their impact on the tourism sector) but the president of the Canaries islands, Paulino Rivero, doesn’t belong to his party and Minister Soria doesn’t pay attention to his claims.

Yesterday, Paulino Rivero met Greenpeace and he has promised to fight against prospections, which are frozen by court order since 2004.

Do you think of hypocrisy?

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
