From experience ---> never judge someones parking unless you see him/her park with your own eyes.

Because we cant know if the toyota on the right side was there in the first place. The MG owner might have just parked right next to somebody who parked badly. That person might have left and the toyota might have parked properly in that spot. ---> It now looks like the MG didnt park properly in the first place.

Parking in Portugal is not that precise, nor is the process of reversing, last time I was there I parked over a metre away from a scruffy fiat and he still managed to scrape my rear bumper when he left. (It was a 'he' as he was sitting in his car when I parked up!)
You see a few 75's about on the Algarve but not ZT's, Rover's largest export market I believe.

I've been living in C.Portugal since May 2009 and never cease to be appalled by the standard of driving/parking out here... Drive too close and abandon their vehicles where they stop, no real parking techniques at all. The main reason that I reckon is the cost of corrective spectacles - they can't or wont pay the terribly high cost glasses and the way they drive I think that most are nearly blind. The only thing that they do observe is the continuous white lines in the middle of the roads, just never cross them!
