British, have a look at the link Armed Forces Day | Honouring Britain's Armed Forces - Past, Present and Future.

Sorry Sparky I couldnt disagree more. Lusty jingoism at its worst IMO. Why expats feel the need to express their "Britishness" in foreign countries I have no idea. This along with the "celebration" of the Royal wedding has IMO been an embarassment in a town famed for its "Spanishness". If Britain is so great why move elsewhere?

The argument of "celebrating" an armed force sent into foreign countries by governments to slaughter innocents for economic reasons is indeed an argument for another place but I find it tacky to say the least that this type of thing not only goes on in PP but is supported by people who should IMO know better.

Of course I expect this post to be deleted as my opinion isnt the norm, however I feel that those who would like to retain PP's charm should have a voice and not be drowned out by the clique.

Good work Can Balache, wish I could be there.

Rab, you don't have to support the war, but you must support the warriors.

A town famed for it's "Spanishness" well I'll be, there was silly old me thinking that with EL Burger king,Taj Kebap,The Golden Lion, Pub Imperial, O'haras, Fletchers, Australian Boulavard, Tex Mex, 24 Chinese establishments and a Kareoke bar not to mention Indian, Italian, Japanese, German & Swiss restaurants it was a pretty cosmopolitan town. As for "celebrating" their had been no mention of such just us making a small contribution to those who past, present and future have or will risk their lives, I'm sorry if that offends your SPANISHNESS but tough.

Im not sure if you have deliberately missed the point Graham.

As I said, why people who have left the country feel the need to display their Britishness in their new home I have no idea. This, along with the Royal wedding street party is tacky to the extreme. Magaluf anybody?
