What areyou trying to prove fillipos apart from being a bore, if someone wants to make a record of what they spend thats fine, why do you have to knock it with your pointless comments ? Or do you think you are above all that ?

In 2012 we spent 16389 Euros, we run a car and eat out at least once or twice a week, we grow most of our own veg and don't struggle to make ends meet

Just checked their web site Jon and it says' full damp course' i'm sure thats very misleading to most people, when we discussed it with them they certainly didn't explain it fully to us and it was only when we mentioned it to the other builder who told us it was not correct that we found out what th...

The damp course issue with Euroland was a cause of concern for us when they quoted us because we assumed it was the same as in the UK, it was only when we took their spec to another builder who told us that you cannot have a real damp proof course on homes with concrete frames. I didn't like the fac...

My house was built by Myridakis who i found excellent, i'd also been quoted by Euroland but their prices were far to high, when we checked on the spec we found little or no difference in the quality of the homes they built

I agree with Brian S, running away from these guys doesn't help, they are the ones who need isolating and you won't do that my running away. We were told that three men supporting Golden Dawn were refused coffee's in one of the bars on the water front at Hania, this is the way to beat them

I see where you are coming from kilkis as one point contradicts the other or could do, but forget that - the point is that in general Greeks cheat the systems en bloc, the majority have no regard for employment law and rules are laughed at, somebody or something must at least try to put an end to th...

Today in the Greek newspapers there are more reports of widespread tax evasions within the tourist industry, an inspection was carried out by tax officials and their report was scathing on business owners. I'd just like to stop reading about these practises and see something done about but it seems ...

I think though Kilkis that the authorities here are pretty lax in many many things from collecting road tax to three people riding a bike , no helmets and so on, tax evasion, corruption, back handers its all in Greece and to some extent seems to be allowed to flourish. The illegal workers used by bu...

I think al when you quote about the post relating to the person who thought Greeks have no social conscience, I feel there is something in whoever said that, Greece's finances are in turmoil, thousands and thousands of Greeks cheat the system, the health service is on the brink of collaspe, some sch...
