Spain Definitely Possibly Moving To Red List. Expats and travellers left in shock as it’s revealed that Spain may or may not be placed on the UK’s red list.
Spain Definitely Possibly Moving To Red List
Spain is reeling from the news that the country may or may not be placed on the UK’s red list. Despite no evidence whatsoever to suggest that the UK government will place further restrictions on travel to and from Spain, social commentators are predicting the worst. Travel expert Carlos Viaje says “There is no way that Spain will be placed on the UK’s red list. The figures simply do not support such a move. Any suggestion to the contrary is irresponsible and unfounded”.
British expat Cliff Walker, originally from Birmingham, says “Actually I’m not from Birmingham, I’m from Handsworth Wood. On the one hand, you have experts like Carlos saying it won’t happen. On the other hand you have Tracey on Facebook saying it will happen. It’s hard to know who to believe”.
“You Don’t Need Facts”
Not everyone is convinced by the experts suggestion that the figures do not support a move to the red list for Spain. Fernando Falso from the Andalucian Regional Safety Executive says “There is a 75% chance of a 100% likelihood of a move to the red list. It’s definitely happening, probably. Look at the figures, then look at what people are posting. You don’t need facts when you have got Facebook.”
A minority of Brits in Spain are now claiming that the red list doesn’t even exist. Warren Shattalot in Fuengirola says “Open your eyes people, there is no red list. It doesn’t exist. There’s no evidence. Stop being sheep, stand up for your rights. Educate yourself. I know what I’m talking about, I’ve done my research”.
Rumours Causing Distress
Some expats are concerned that the rumours are causing unnecessary distress. Anne Fernandez MBE HOT FUN SXY FIT runs a support group for outraged expats on Facebook. She says “I’m outraged and so are my members. A few people are posting this rubbish, and scaring other people who are too gullible to realise they are gullible. I’m so convinced that we won’t be going on the red list that I’ve actually thrown out all of my red clothes, even my red PVC hotpants which were very popular at our last meeting. It’s important to stand up to these people”.
Stew Pidd believes that this is just fake news. He says “anything I don’t understand is fake news, especially jokes I don’t get or don’t like. This is obviously fake news. They need us more than we need them. Big up Boris”.
