Britons Return to Malaga

BRITONS are now returning to the Costa del Sol after numbers fell dramatically in the first quarter of 2009, a study has revealed.

Figures from AENA Spanish airports confirmed that 15.6 per cent fewer British passengers arrived at Malaga during the first three months of this year compared to the same period of 2008.

However, a revival since then has seen the drop cut to 9.5 per cent for the half year.

Overall, 1,068,000 Britons flew to Malaga between January and the end of June.

Meanwhile, German numbers also recovered from a 20.59 per cent first quarter drop to a half year reduction of 9.9 per cent.

British and German passengers have accounted for 70 per cent of all arrivals so far this year.

Don’t get excited I’m not talking about prostitutes, but those fucking idiots who seem to think that because they are on holiday in a holiday resort, walking down the middle of the street is acceptable and all local drivers have got cat like reflexes and can dodge pedestrians coming from the left, right and above at the same time! We can’t! Get of the fucking road or don’t complain if you get clipped by the occasional side mirror (funny seeing them jump).
