taxi rankIn a bid to smarten up, the Taxi Driver Association have proposed that all their drivers should confirm to a set standard regarding appearance, which has been accepted by Benidorm town hall. Drivers will no longer be allowed to wear jeans or corduroy trousers but instead men will be required to wear black, navy or blue trousers and ladies a suitable length skirt of the same colour.

No t-shirts or sleeveless tops, instead a short or long sleeved shirt – dependent on weather or a polo shirt with collar. Also added to the list are no sweatshirts, sports garments or trainers. Perhaps they will also bring a similar acceptable standard of dress for their passengers?

stagMost shops in Spain already require you to wear a top, predominantly for hygiene purposes – but men still get served at most bars topless. Perhaps the authorities should also take a look at what is deemed acceptable around the resort when it comes to attire worn by visitors, especially from the stag groups!

dancer on beachfrontThe issue of virtually naked podium dancers is also a contentious subject, especialy as the resort is trying to promote itself as a 'family friendly' holiday destination. Even a bar right on the Levante beachfront has them gyrating on a Sunday afternoon. It seems endemic that all the bars now have them as standard in a bid to attract male customers. 

Go Go dancerIt may be acceptable in more of an adult environment, around the square or at least after dark when it is unlikely children and families will be walking about. Yesterday in a bid to be patriotic, even one of the girls covered her modesty with St George stickers - imaginative if nothing else, but the audience she was attempting to attract were all too busy celebrating England's win!

You see a lot of men and women walking through town who have obviously just come from the beach. They really need to cover up those wobbly bellies and fatty areas. Absolutely disgusting to see. Have they no shame? Someone needs to tell them they look disgusting. How about tightening up with the laws.

News Snippets

  • Top Gear +

    Match making comedian Paddy McGuinness and former International cricketer Freddie Flintoff have been confirmed as the new hosts of 'Top Gear'. It has come as a huge surprise to many and the pair are rumoured to have secured a £500K two year deal with Beeb bosses!
  • Olive Oil +

    Prices of olive oil are expected to rocket as crops in Italy and Greece have been hit by bad weather. In some areas harvests are down by 60% and subsequently, wholesale prices have doubled from €3,000 to €6,000 a ton! But the saving grace may be Spain, where they had a bumper olive harvest...
  • That's crackers! +

    The Royal Mint are launching a gift range which will include 58 select items, one of which is a 'gold' six pack of Christmas crackers costing £5,000! But obviously for that price you are getting slightly more than a paper hat and plastic spinning top - you may be lucky to pull open a 1oz gold bar, 24 carat bullion coin or even an 18 carat gold diamond necklace!
  • End of the road +

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.
  • DIY closures +

    DIY store Homebase is set to close approximately 60 stores over the next few weeks, threatening more than 1,000 jobs. The chain currently has 250 UK stores, employing around 12,000 staff.
  • Chewing gum +

    A estimated £60 million a year is spent cleaning chewing gum off pavements - a startling amount. More than 100,000 tons are consumed every year, but many have no idea that it contains plastic. Now supermarket chain Iceland have developed a a new product called 'Simply Gum' - which is made from a sap called chicle, extracted from a tree native to Central America.
