Re: The Will of the People

You were the one who asked for comments. Now you have them. I just listened to German MEP Hans-Olaf Henkel doing an interview with Sky News. He argues that the EU should go further in trying to satisfy UK demands and has been arguing it for a long time. He is far more articulate and argues in a much...

Re: Looking for Partner/ Partners

In case you weren't aware you can totally delete any post as long as nobody else has posted after it in that thread. Once someone else has posted after it you can only edit it but that could include completely deleting the content. If you do ever totally delete the content I would suggest adding som...

Re: Boxes for packing

A friend has just shipped a lot of small items to Romania and he bought a load of the crates they use for picking oranges. He said that they were much stronger than cardboard boxes and so fragile items were less likely to get damaged. He used KMF, close to the low security prison just off the Omalos...

...The debate, 3 well known staunch remainers and 3 staunch leavers. All get a fair shout to express their views. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYTJGBBjkGo I watched all the opening statements but not the questions. It was a debate during the referendum campaign in 2016 and events have moved on a...

Re: DVLA Code

I can sort of understand why it might. Under EU law you are supposed to have a licence issued by the country where you are permanently resident. Since the DVLA only issues licences to people who are permanently resident in the UK they might expect requests for a DVLA code to come from a UK IP addres...

Re: The Will of the People

Scooby was really replying to Guy's post, Bob. There’s something i’m missing here: a UK citizen wants the U.K. to leave the EU, but wants to carry on living in Crete, which is part of the EU. So, there’s an objection to U.K. being governed (in part) by EU rules, but it’s ok for the individual lo be ...

Re: Looking for Partner/ Partners

I would politely suggest that blitzing 6 different sections of the forum with the same advert isn't likely to endear you to many forum members. I am replying here since it seems the most relevant section. You might consider deleting the posts from the other sections. You might also consider giving j...

Re: Currency Index

I presume you mean that they won't send one to a Greek address? The web site states "Accepted anywhere in the world that accepts Mastercard". Presumably those people who "pretend" to live in the UK, i.e. have accounts registered to a UK address, could open a Borderless Account us...

Re: The Will of the People

...If I watch a debate on anything I usually agree with one or the other, what's the point of anyone debating if no one has an opinion. I gave a link to a good debate but no one commented on it, I wonder why. If I remember correctly, probably because it was rather long so nobody actually watched it...

Re: The Will of the People

I must confess to feeling rather like the farmer, leaning on a gate, who is asked by a tourist for directions to a certain town. After a long think he replies, "If I were you I wouldn't start from here". As far as I can see, from where we are now there is no good outcome. I am sure there m...

Re: Relocating to Crete

...My total monthly bill for landline and internet is 29.50,.. For clarity, the deal Scooby is talking about is one where you have a landline, it can sort of support broadband but it is always slow. I can't find a reference to that particular deal now on the Cosmote web site. You would probably nee...

Re: Property Register declaration

I pay significantly more than that, Mixos, and I don't think I am being fleeced. You can't just look at the fee. My accountant has saved me far more than he ever charged me so I regard it as good value for money. The average Greek accountant does charge about €50 per year, some a bit less. Those spe...

Re: Property Register declaration

Same arrangement, Bob, unless something really out of the ordinary occurs. Obviously such a commitment cannot be totally open ended.

...I hear May and others saying the EU does not want a backstop, well they have been fighting bloody hard for it for the last one and a half years! Actually they haven't. They have been fighting to maintain control of their border. They have only allowed the backstop because they are aware of the c...

Re: The Will of the People

Out of curiosity had the people who wrote the article asked the EU what their opinion was on this "third simple option"? Contrary to how it is presented the EU does not want the backstop. The EU does not want NI in the customs union and the single market with the UK outside it. The EU jeal...
