Re: Transferring Pension

I was with my accountant this morning, doing my annual tax return, and he confirmed that Government bonds, which includes Premium Bonds and other bonds issued by NS&I are not taxable here. I declared my winnings for 2018 plus interest on an NS&I Growth Bond and both were entered as non-taxab...

Re: Cosmote internet router problem

I wired mine in accordance with Figure 1.4 in the "Speedport Entry 2i Maintenance Management Guide", which I downloaded from the internet in English. It is the same as Σκήμα 1 in the booklet that comes with the modem. It has a small passive splitter that plugs directly into the wall socket...

Re: House insurance

I use ERGO , which is a very large multinational insurance company, underwritten by Munich Re, which I think is bigger than Lloyds of London. ERGO took over ATE, which was the insurance arm of the Agricultural Bank. The agent I use in Chania is Stephanos Katsifarakis. You could email him at stephano...

Re: The Will of the People

I'm not criticising anybody, Bob. Maud is expressing her opinion that remaining in the EU is "best for the country". Economically I agree with her. I am simply trying to point out that trying to remain in the EU could have political consequences that turn out to be far worse than the econo...

Re: The Will of the People

But you are viewing it purely from your perspective. A large number of people in the country do not share your perspective. Do the European Parliamentary elections and the Peterborough by election not give you any concern at all that doing what you think is best for the country could have an outcome...

Re: The Will of the People

But what does "putting your country first" mean Maud. If, as I do, I believed leaving the EU would do significant economic damage both to the country and to its citizens I should try to keep the UK inside the EU. But if I recognised, as I do, that trying to remain in the EU could lead to t...

Re: The Will of the People

I agree, Guy. Perhaps the world should stop using steel altogether? Concrete is also bad so perhaps the world should stop using concrete? What exactly do you find sobering about it, Scooby? Some areas voted more leave than the average and some areas voted more remain than the average. That's hardly ...

Re: Tile shops around Chania

...interesting, possibly hand made, glazed tiles. Don’t want to spend a fortune... "Possibly hand made" and "Don't want to spend a fortune" sound mutually exclusive to me? I would try Terzis on the road that runs along the south side of the National Highway between the Omalos Ro...

Re: The Will of the People

Has anybody ever thought about how many things that they use in daily life are made of steel? In 2018 1.8 billion metric tons of steel was produced around the world. Are people aware that 90 % of steel used today is a simple alloy of Iron and Carbon? I wonder where the Carbon comes from? Ooooo what ...

Re: The Will of the People

I have no strong opinion either way. I was simply contrasting the processes in the EU, which is regarded by leave voters as completely undemocratic, and the current processes in the UK that is supposedly the world bastion of democracy. There is no absolute scale by which you can judge democracy. For...

Re: The Will of the People

I am sure that the RTE article must be completely wrong? It suggests that posts such as the President of the Commission, the President of the Council etc are selected by the heads of the 28 member states. Each of those heads is democratically elected by a majority of the entire voting population of ...
