Yes. So the Daily Mail reader wouldn't see the irony. I actually inherited a property in Tenerife which I still own. I bled myself dry to keep the paperwork in order. The mentality seems to be 'If it's hot there, It'll be fine.'There are of course demographics in the UK that act in a similar manner, mixing only with their own, not adapting local social mores and norms, refusing to eat any of the local muck but instead only their cuisine.
And look down on the UK population as being lower than dogs - and have moved to the UK as their own country is a backwards s***hole.
Funnily enough the typical Guardian reader would not sneer at such behaviours from that sub-culture in the UK as they would at the behaviour of Brits in Spain.
I have the same with people seeking the idyllic life on the canal. Buy an expensive boat. It's still made of steel, and steel rusts.
