Re: Why Brexit is Right

For clarification, as far as I am aware you can only obtain Greek citizenship if you can prove a Greek bloodline. A law was introduced to allow children of immigrants who are educated in Greece to obtain citzenship but I think it was suspended because it was ruled unconstitutional.

Re: Why Brexit is Right

I don't know of any remainer who has hailed the EU as the second coming. It is an organisation that confers rights and responsibilities. It has advantages and disadvantages. All remainers I know accept the responsibilites and the diasdvantages in order to gain the rights and the advantages. Leavers,...

Re: Skype Update

After the initial problem with the username I haven't had any significant problems. For me Skype is just as good as it always was. I have one very minor problem. When I first start it up, to the first person I connect to I sound as though I am under water. It doesn't seem to matter whether it is ano...

Re: TOPOGRAPHIC REPORT

I am not sure that I understand the concept of an "original" and a "copy"? The civil engineer who prepared a topographical report of my property did everything on computer. I don't see any differerence in the copy he printed off for me, the copy he submitted to the authories and ...

Re: ingrown toenails

I use Foot Expert opposite the fire station in Chania. Not cheap but very good. They use podiatrists rather than pedicurists.

Re: Why Brexit is Right

What people are forgetting is that previously each country had its own regulation which meant exporters had to potentially meet 28 different regulations across Europe. Having a single EU regulation simplifes things and makes them cheaper. Also many EU regulations transfer responsibility back to the ...

Re: Why Brexit is Right

I agree, lets get rid of all the stupid regulations. For example there are rules that electrical products have to be designed to be safe and undergo tests to prove that they are. If we got rid of that electrical prodeucts would be cheaper. The same for cars, medical products, medicines, food, planes...

In winter they want to fly to winter destinations. They have a limited number of planes and they move the...

Although this thread is about getting a residence certificate it contains lots of information on buying a car, including how to do it without a residence certificate.

Re: Surgeon

I can't comment on his skills as a neurosurgeon but I've had consultations with him and he seems a pretty good neurologist. He diagnosed a minor neurological problem I had purely on the basis of the symptoms and an examination in his office. He then sent me off for a range of tests and the results o...

Re: Medical Insurance

I would point out that in my earlier post I make no judgement about what people should or should not do. Everybody must make his/her own decisions. I simply tried to clarify what the rules are and how they may be circumvented.

Re: Medical Insurance

You are correct that it is not intended only for emergency care BUT it is only intended for people who are resident in the UK and are travelling abroad for short periods. It is not really valid for anybody who has moved permanently to Greece and is resident here. Apart for cover for State Pensioners...

Re: Purchasing a house (and paying for it!)

We had actually transferred the money from the UK to the estate agent's bank account* and he had gone and drawn it out in cash so if it was short it was his problem. We were only buying the land at that time and then built the house.

* Not something I would recommend.

Re: Dog Poisoning

It's a good beach for swimming, especially at the western end. The headland between Agios Apostoli and Chrysi Akti seems to provide some protection from the wind. The long straight stretch to the west through Gerani and Maleme is prone to rip tides under some conditions and I have never seen anythin...
