  1. Great news they arrested 10 drug drivers, but they can’t arrest the drug dealers on the streets of Funchal selling the zombie drug bloom to teenagers and anyone else that has money.

  2. Six weeks plus a year, for the last ten years, first visited 1968, out of the hotel every night talking and listening to both visitors and locals and cannot recognise the Madeira portrayed by the few constantly bitter writers here. If just once they were to write a few positive lines on Madeira perhaps I could take them seriously but nothing good to say. At all? If it is so bad why do they choose to remain here. I constantly ask but never receive a reply. It is my constant surprise that they choose to live in Madeira. Please tell us why, there must be a reason.
