Re: Why Did Vote LEave Win?

It's both a task AND an adventure, grana1963. Everyone should do it at least once! 8)

Re: Residency

The sensible part of my answer still stands! Currently you can stay for 6 months in any 12. That rule should pertain until the end of the brexit transition period - currently the end of this year.

Re: Residency

I would say that it depends on how you answered the question on the Cadastral Registration form last year. If you ticked the box to confirm that you're a permanent resident, then I would think you're not restricted as to the time you may spend here. If you ticked the box to state that you are a visi...

Re: Villa Sale

Hi Cruc I've been looking into this myself. You could of course always use Rightmove, where you write your own advert and they host it for you. However, I believe the site tends to be mostly viewed by the British, and if you search for properties on Crete via a search engine in a foreign language, R...

Crete Documentary

There is an ITV documentary series on the Greek Islands that has just aired in the UK called 'The Greek Islands with Julia Bradbury'. Each episode is (somewhat disappointingly) 30 minutes long. In the first episode she visits Crete and takes in the Dikti Mountains, Lassithi Plateau, Rethymno and Spi...

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

Not a Boris fan, as I've said before, but anything other than a Conservative majority in the next parliament will almost certainly kill off Brexit, which may well please the majority of contributors to this forum. However, the thought of Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonell and Diane Abacus getting their gr...

Re: Property purchase costs involved ?

You've got me racking my brains now, Warwick. When I bought my house in 2008, I agreed the purchase price with the estate agent and made one single payment in that amount. I'm 99% sure I made no extra payments for anything after that. Of course I have no way of knowing how much of that payment was p...

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

Not very democratic, I would suggest. Tim I would suggest that not holding a confirmatory referendum is undemocratic in light of the lies told during campaigning, the electoral laws broken and use of what is known as dark money from unknown sources that funded the referendum. The fact that both sid...

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

Reluctant though I am to disagree with my friend Tim, there is nothing undemocratic about the Lib Dem policy, as it represents a return to the fundamental principle of Parliamentary democracy -- that no parliament can bind its successor. After this general election we will have had two since the re...

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

Why are they unelectable in the UK? Liberal Democrats . I think the clue's in the title, Toebs. As Warwick points out, even some Remainers are uncomfortable with a political party which has refused to accept the result of a nationwide democratic exercise and simply wants to cancel it without furthe...
