Re: The Will of the People

Yes. One vote more for the no confidence side compared to the confidence side is enough. The speaker does not vote but I think he has a casting vote in the event of a tie. I think, but don't know for sure, that the convention is that he votes for the status quo so a tie would mean the vote failed a...

Re: Brewery and glamping in crete

Hi guys. Good luck! Confess to having had to look up the term glamping - but then I am an old fuddy duddy. Re your questions (without commenting on your ambitions) the two things you will need to have are a good lawyer and a good accountant. Others on this site can advise better than I, and will pro...

Re: IKA and AMKA

I don't think you can take the renewal date of your IKA book as a certain criterion. When you go to the doctors to get a new prescription the doctor logs onto the online prescription service and enters your AMKA number. Quite often I don't even take my IKA book but just give him the number. The gov...

Re: The Will of the People

Believe me, I do question it, but can't take Rees Mogg's projection seriously. Apparently it was a one-off by some academic, and only one amongst many, many others who have all said a no-deal will be costly. Rees-Mogg is just like the rest of them. Lies, damned lies, and statistics'. The exposure o...

Re: IKA and AMKA

I went to the health centre in Vamos yesterday and was offered (and accepted) 6-months' worth of prescriptions. Doesn't mean they can't refuse to honour them after 31 October, but ................. Bob.

Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

t is all getting confusing about healthcare! Does anyone know exactly where we are at the moment regarding the S1 pensioners who are currently members of the healthcare system here? What is the likelihood of being denied the new 'residency permit' if one or more members of a family does not have pri...
