Re: 2020 car tax

The car tax rate for 2020 seems to be the same as last year, moggieman.

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

No, that's good Jeff. It means you have a strong sense of social justice and are extremely liberal in outlook. Live and let live. You're not, by any chance, an ageing hippie? That would fit!

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

I have just done your Political Compass test, Warwick, and find myself in the quarter marked Libertarian Left -- in almost the exact spot occupied by Mahatma Gandhi... Excuse me if I feel a bit smug and quite surprised.

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

Totally agree with Warwick, Keltz and SueA. What started as a reasonable discussion thread has degenerated into a lot of juvenile point-scoring that has been hijacked by headbangers and effectively shut out the vast majority of forum members. It's very tedious and very boring.

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

Well I knew Rod personally in a previous life, Jeff, and he was certainly never averse to winding people up -- and he still does it very well -- but it makes me smile when he talks about "the establishment" because, of course, he was at the very epicentre of "the establishment" w...

Re: What`s the best way to get rid of Oleander?

I might recommend this to my neighbour as a slightly more eco-friendly way of disposing of his pickup engine oil which, at the moment, he just tips into the storm drain.

Re: Quiet Hours

It's a pity that this law appears to say nothing about people allowing their dogs to bark all night long!

Re: Could this be true?

Our Greek wills, which we did 15 years ago when we bought property here, were in English, but they had to be hand-written and free of any crossing out, amendments or other errors. They were witnessed by a notary and lodged in her files. They are simple mirror wills, leaving all our assets in Greece ...

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

Toebs asks if anyone has seen scooby.

He's not the only gung-ho Brexiteer on this and other threads who's gone rather silent.

Perhaps staring into the abyss has rendered them speechless?

Re: Driving

Yes, Tim's right about the roundabout in Sitia which, after about six? years since it was built, can still be a frightening place for the unwary. Most of the locals have now learnt how to use it, but there are still a few old boys in pick-ups who drive on to it without looking left or reducing speed...

Izal? Is that the paper we used to "play" by putting it next to a comb and humming...? No, that was Bronco I think. Happy days.

Re: Prorogation of Parliament - Petition

You are on the mark there, Tim. Talking of which, a certain "off Crete" poster has gone uncharacteristically quiet. Has he been blocked at last?
