It looks like a bromeliad whose name I've long forgotten. I'll do some looking and see if I can find out.
the one I remember has really fierce spines.

Yes, it looks like a Puya -a genus with a number of species native to Chile. Another possibility is Fascicula, also native to Chile.

The two most common Puyas in cultivation are P. chilensis and P. alpestris.

Thankyou very much perlite and euphorbrom for your messages
we agree it is a bromeliad , however I feel that it is an
Ochagavia carnea . You can find it in this site follow the:

But I am still not 100% sure...... I saw the other possibilities and they really don't match.
thanx

Puya carnea was what I had in mind.

However, the ones I've seen are definitely bluer than your plant.
