50 SHADES A DAY?

As you may have read, last Friday some of Italy's private beach companies, in what became known as the sciopero degli ombrelloni or "parasol strike", staged a protest against new EU regulations which, from 2016, will allow for licence auctions. 




And this is what Simi the dog had to say about it:

Some of us don't get these news bits. Care to elaborate?

Hi, Rosaria. Well, just that the licences for privater beaches, which up to now have been automatically renewed every six years, will be auctioned when it's time for renewal from 2016. As a lot of these stretches of beach are managed by small, family firms - bar owners, etc - they are afraid of the multinationals moving in and taking away their livelihoods.
Thanks, WW, from Simi and me. xx woof!

O Simi looks so cute. Yesterday I saw too Polish women with a tiny Porkshire that really reminded me of Simi. I so wanted to kidnap it and take it home...
