When I was coming down in the lift at the Palma convention centre after a lunch where the British ambassador had been guest speaker, I heard a person say that he wouldn't have stood up in a room full of people and tried to defend Brexit and the government's handling of it. But ambassador Simon Manley did just that and he was most impressive. He said that Britons shouldn't be too concerned about their rights in Spain after Brexit because they had been guaranteed by the Spanish government and there had been no major nosedive in UK holiday bookings to Spain. He underlined the fact that Britain was the largest foreign investor in the Balearics and he also stated that the British economy was on track to grow at the same level as France and Germany.
