Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

My fear is that the Tories get a working majority and then push through a no-deal. You may well be right, Howard. However, to be fair, the HoC has had many opportunites to pass a deal and on every occasion has found one or more reasons to vote it down. If we end up after a General Election leaving ...

"'Betcha we don't leave.' I wrote that on the evening of 24 June 2016, once the euphoria had passed. A lot of us leavers, despite being elderly and thick, knew. The establishment wouldn't let it happen." I think we're as close to not leaving as we have been since June 2016. Although the E...

Re: TENT ONLY BASIC CAMPING SITE

Hi IanL

Is there really a market for a campsite without any basic sanitation? I'm a little surprised the authorities have allowed it given the public health context.

Not having a go - simply interested.

Re: Driving

My father said something similar 45 years ago: 'Always assume every other driver on the road is an idiot'. Good advice, as it turned out he was right.

Re: Could this be true?

My question is simple really – could it be possible to pay 3 years work of property taxes (on any empty and possibly abandoned property) and then be able to get legal title? Μόνο στην Κρήτη! :) I have heard of this from several different sources but have never been able to find out if it's true or ...

Re: UK Food in Supermarkets

Tim, although I've never been inside it myself, I should think you'd find of most of what's on your homesick shopping list at "The English Shop," on the Kritsa Road about 1km outside Agios Nikolaos. (Not sure about the industrial size loo rolls though.) M. Hi Mixos Yes. they do. Just thou...

Re: UK Food in Supermarkets

Would certainly be an improvement on what is currently on offer, kamisiana. Or is it me? Do the indigenous population have a special technique? I wish I'd left some of my furniture in England and loaded up the van with Andrex instead!

Heinz Salad Cream
Colman's Old English Mustard
Branston Pickle (original and small chunk)
Daddie's Brown Sauce

If you could arrange these to be sold in the Sitia area, markatsos, I'd be extremely grateful.

Also, toilet paper with decent sized squares of paper. Just sayin' .....

From the article:

Re: How long should it take to purchase a house?

Generally the sales process is faster than in the UK - just a few weeks from handshake to completion. Is your seller possibly caught in a chain and is unable to complete with you until they complete on their next property? Just a thought.
