    They now buy properties in London, via offshore 'trusts'.

    We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.

    You're contradicting yourself. Spain had a great past and may yet have a great future, but no one would say it's great now.
    Just another European ex-big power, like the UK.
    Past greatness does not imply future greatness, civilisations rise and fall.

    Spain has had some shady moments in its history, but you are right it was, is, and will be a great country.

    Being in or out of the EU doesn't define us. We were, are, and will be the UK (well who knows about that).

    The point is that we are who we are. We are not Switzerland or Spain. Why must we homogenise?

    Are you nuts!!!

    Uk is better than Spain.

    The UK can't be compared with pirates that still invading our waters for fishing, try to steal tonnes of fruits from our farms, maintain an out of date nuclear power plant in Almaraz, planning to construct a nuclear trash near the Tagus river without an environment impact assessment ...

    They were born pirates and they will die as Pirates. Nothing good from there...
