Re­mem­ber it’s not that you don’t know if you are di­a­betic…… it's what you DON’T KNOW your don’t know! ie the con­se­quences! THE COSTA del Sol Free­thinkers next meet­ing is on Novem­ber 17 at Cafe Manila, Paseo Marí­timo, Res de Es­paña 77, Los Boliches from 18.30 to 20.00

New Zealand's new prime min­is­ter has de­scribed cap­i­tal­ism a bla­tant fail­ure, say­ing that lev­els of home­less­ness and low wages are ev­i­dence that the mar­ket has failed her coun­try's poor.

And a for­mer Greek fi­nance min­is­ter and eco­nomics pro­fes­sor claims that cap­i­tal­ism is end­ing be­cause it has made it­self ob­so­lete.

Usu­ally about 15-20 at­tend our meet­ings, mainly ex­pats from the UK and other Euro­pean coun­tries, in­clud­ing Poland, the Nether­lands and Denmark, but Spa­niards have some­times at­tended, and also an Aus­tralian, an Ar­gen­tinian, an Egyp­tian-Canadian and two Ira­ni­ans. At this meet­ing the lan­guage used will be English, but if any­one is in­ter­ested in meet­ings in Span­ish, ei­ther in Málaga or else­where, let me know.
