LOOKED at my tyre and it was flat. No big deal - I can phone the grua or change it myself. So I opened the boot of the car to…
Q. My neighbour, a mechanic, offered to repair my car for an hourly rate. He stripped down the piece involved and I bought the necessary parts. He spent seven hours…
“DADDY,” says the little boy, looking enquiringly up at his Father. “Why do we wear these long white robes?” “Well my son,” replies his Dad. ‘That’s to keep the flies away and the mosquitoes from biting our arms and legs.’ ‘Oh I see’, says the boy. ‘And Dad, why do…
PABLO CASADO, the Partido Popular’s wunderkind could turn out to be not so wonderful after all. Like the Madrid Community’s defenestrated regional president, he has a very dubious Master’s degree in Autonomous Law to explain away.

LAST week I got a rather desperate ‘phone call from my dear friend asking me to rescue her son from Puerto Banus. You could hear the panic in her voice:…
Q. I AM President of my urbanisation and I seek your advice on bringing a supply of natural gas into our urbanisation. Some owners want gas and others do not.…
WELL I’ve tried to ignore him - I really have, but unfortunately I can’t. Who am I talking about? I like to call him Stormy Daniels ex-lover, otherwise known as…
