As an English man living in Spain I am so proud of the Spanish Government for taking immediate control of this crisis.
As an English Man I am proud of Spain for being Decisive and for enforcing immediate rules that kept me and my friends safe.
I Am proud to watch Thousands of people of all races clapping and cheering from terraces every night and abiding by the rules of the land and STAYING HOME.
I am Proud of all the front line workers, Doctors and nurses and shop staff.
Proud that nobody seems to be hoarding and there is plenty of stock on supermarket shelves.
Proud that when they extended the lock down by another 3 weeks today there was no Uproar….. no protests nobody screaming about human rights.
Three weeks ago i challenged a man on Facebook who called Spain a Third World Country and said “This would NEVER happen in the UK”, He was right to a certain extent. Spain is a lot poorer than the UK but I have never known a nation come together like Spain has. From day One nobody threw tantrums, ignored the rules (With the exception of some British Tourists in Benidorm)
Nobody was out Spitting at Police or Trashing Ambulances
Everybody here is coping and going about their lives as best they can. Community spirit is everywhere
I only wish that my family in the UK were here with me now because we may not live in a country as advanced or politically correct as the UK but when the shit hits the fan the Spanish authorities did what they had to do WHEN they had to do it.
I am both Proud and Lucky to Live here, I only hope that the UK Government takes their head out of their ass and follows suit.
