Money, money, money.

He was an Able Seaman for 2 years in the Royal Navy, does that help?

The court in Marbella has been waiting 18 months for Sean Connery and

his wife Micheline to respond to questions regarding an alleged money
laundering operation related to sale of the Connery villa.
It has been estimated that Marbella Town Hall lost out to the tune of
€2.7 million because of the deal which has been estimated to have
generated profits of 53 million as 72 luxury apartments were built on
the site of the villa, previously owned by the Connerys.
The actor and his wife face money laundering charges, with reported
transfers of more than 37 million € abroad, to the U.K. and Uruguay
reported to be under investigation.
80 year old Sean Connery claimed reasons of poor health for his lack
of an appearance in October 2010 despite being told, by letter to his
house in Nassau, that ‘all legal measures available, both in national
legislation and international legislation would be used’ to oblige
Connery and his wife to declare. Bail was set at 3.3 million € for the
couple in terms of civil responsibility.

Funny how he is such a good Scottish patriot but rarely goes there. Mine you, neither would I if I was his age. i am not being disparaging, but kerrist on an Emirates flight to Mecca, it is bloody cold and wet there (often).

Can't see the relevance of his so called 'patriotism' to the story but if we're going down that tired old path, I suppose he's no different to the little Englanders who've been living in Spain for the past 30-40 years, running 'Fish & Chip' Shops and doss holes called the 'Red Lion' which are usually full of England top wearing, obnoxious, middle aged fat bastards who "Ain't eating that foreign muck! I'll have the steak and kidney pud' and two veg' please, Norman" I suppose?

Nope Stoorie as an English man I fully concur with Biscuits.

Saw 1 of these creatures in his safari suit towing his missus round to look for a pudding tin so he could have his Sunday dinner.

All the foods of Spain and this tosser wants a Sunday roast

Hi Biscuits AB, I don't know how it got turned into your rant but I thought there were as many tapas dodgers in Third Division North as anywhere else? Certainly here in Spain there are dodgy Tartan Bars and dodgy Irish Bars (there must be some Taff ones, anybody know?). One of my fav Rab C. Nesbitt scenes is where he stands on the roof terrace of the holiday villa and sees his Spanish equivalent on the terrace next door. I can't mind the Latin for it....

Would that have been a Lorne Tin (full of square sausage?) for starters.

Talent? Bit of an ambitious ID don't you think?

the thing is , people at his financial level don't deal with any thing . They have " people " for that so one wonders if his lawyers etc were trying to make a bit on the side . My colleague who was a lawyer for a big London practice told me they had to put 6 solicitors onto buying a place for gazza in spain .
