Can anybody recommend a policy or a broker?

Try Elias Papaevgeniadis - a broker for a few companies including Eurolife, a Cypriot company now expanding into Greece which was giving good deals when we took out our policies. He speaks excellent English and his number is 6973471638.

Cyprus publishes residence rights for British nationals after Brexit

The government of Cyprus has published a paper on how it intends to deal with British nationals after Brexit.

It follows the draft withdrawal guidelines issued by the EU - We can only hope that the Greek government follows in the same vein.

You can see the full (pdf) document here

Re: Flights

P.S. Scooby, are you still here? I thought you were going back to the UK? :lol: ) Oh I'm still here and yes will be going to the UK soon, and when we (and I a mean "we" as in the UK) leave the EU does that mean I need a visa to post on here? :wink: Dunno - your guess is as good as mine - ...

Re: Flights

Seems to you it's obviously not a once in a lifetime vote, we could do best of three. OK - So I meant "once in a lifetime event ", thankfully it's not a criminal offence (unlike electoral fraud :wink: ). I think that this video of Lord Lisvane sums up my feelings about the whole affair ni...

Re: Flights

But after a general election, and you don't like the party who has got in do you then say I want another vote. Yes, you get another chance to vote for your party in a general election a few years later - did I not make that clear above? This is why it's even more important to have another vote for ...

Re: Flights

Warwick,

If you've got a bit of time on your hands, could you just pop into number 10, kick out the current incumbent and take over until, ... oh, say March 2019?

I'd be much obliged.

(Actually, I'm sure you could do what needs to be done in just a few minutes :) )

Re: Temporary Brexit Forum

It may be interesting theatre to some, but it misses the point that as British citizens living in an EU country, our continued ability to live in any EU country may well be impacted. May may have issued her unilateral "commitment" to EU citizens to remain in the UK, but there has been no s...

Re: A Thought for the Day

Good luck with getting people to watch it, Warwick, let alone understand it for what it is. I find, from the general population, that people are not interested in learning about the exponential function. Coming from a working class family, as I did, the desire to understand such information is not t...

Re: Change Of Heart?

This is an interesting philosophical conundrum, isn't it? Should we debate the topic of Brexit on "Living In Crete", when the topic itself challenges the very ability of the British contingent of posters on "Living in Crete" to actually continue living in Crete? Hmmm.... :lol:

Re: Storm Clouds.

Brits may have to jump a couple of hoops to stay but my best guess is it won't be a problem and will be the same for EU members in the UK. Of course, the real problem is that we just don't know yet - More than 2 years after the vote, we still know nothing concrete. Whatever side they're on the peop...
