  • According to a release today from the Reuters news agency the Spanish Government have been in secret talks for some time with North Korea regarding assistance with funding to solve the Spanish financial crisis.

    Fearing a meltdown in the Spanish economy, North Korea have agreed to assist Spain with a substantial  cash injection resulting in the pumping of 4 trillion into the Spanish economy.

    According to Reuters spokesperson Flora Olip the injection of monies is in return for Spain giving up all of the soverienty of the Canary Islands.

    It is feared that the North Koreans wish to establish several nuclear bases across the islands which will give them access to western Europe and to America.

    Certain sites around the Canaries have already been short listed as potential sites to deploy long range missile launch platforms including three in Tenerife.  They are all in the west of the island - whilst no precise area has yet been declared it is feared that one site could be close to Los Gigantes due to it's unique geographical position and climate.

    A spokesman for the North Korean government  is quoted as saying  "Our occupation of the Canary Islands is solely as a defence mechanism, to protect the citizens of North Korea from our enemies in the West - we will only launch our missiles if provoked"

    Reuters said North Korean currently has upward of 1.21 million armed personnel and is the 4th largest military operation in the world.

    With the deployment of several military bases in the Canaries it is estimated that in the short term approximately 100,000 North Korean servicemen/women will stationed here.  Whilst the bases are being built Korea will make use of the empty holiday apartments around the islands.

  • That Flora Olip certainly gets around. I remember reading about something else she was involved in exactly 1 year ago! Good story though.

    Edward, I am sure that a well educated person like yourself would know that Flora Olip is actually a shortened version of Flora Oliphant.  Apparently she didn't like the possible confusion with "Elephant" so shortened her name to "Olip".  If you don't believe me, look up the 1940 US Federal Census (you can Google it) and you will find that Flora was indeed born in Kentucky in 1899 and was residing happily in Mississippi in 1940.  I suspect she is sadly no longer with us.
