Re: The Will of the People

Isn't indicative voting the same instrument that Labour used to get the wrong Milliband as leader?

Re: The Will of the People

The right honourable member for the 18th century is now saying May's deal is better than no Brexit. Could we see another MV tomorrow with the tories united?

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

As an ex smoker who now vapes it's interesting to look at things from both sides as it were. My wife still smokes and at our hotel in Crete I would accompany my wife outside when she went for a smoke, whereas you can vape indoors. The owners of the hotel smoked indoors naturally enough. I get people...

Re: The Storm and the Gorge

It's not much longer of a route and I've been informed by the car rental company that even if Britain crashes out and plague, pestilence and famine ensue, my British licence is still accepted in Greece - result!

We have a week booked in Plakias next month so I take it we will have to take the long way down through Mirthios.

If you run Honda and are currently selling 150,000 cars in the EU and 2 million in China and the USA which market will you go to for your next generation of electric vehicles?

Re: Mosquitos

We have just returned from a holiday in Sissi and the mosquitoes were the worst we have ever encountered in Crete. Both my wife and I were bitten on several occasions and we're not normally bothered by them. Our granddaughter was plagued by them which spoiled things a bit for her. We tried all the u...

Re: Yannis: The Return

I would have thought that Draghi was a lot worse for the Greek economy than someone who told the truth - that Greece could not afford the repayments. Little, if anything has changed in this regard and yet Varoufakis is still scorned by some. I don't think he'd be much use in a political sense as the...

Re: Help. Shotguns not allowed.

Apparently hanging cd's on threads keeps them away as they don't like reflective surfaces.

Re: One Drive on not-so-smart Samsung phone

It's purely a personal choice thing, and I just think that it's disappointing that they went with a company that have used some questionable tactics to get where they are today. The more open source we have the better, but choice is very important too.

Re: One Drive on not-so-smart Samsung phone

Sadly Samsung have recently used Microsoft products as part of a deal which is why you now have excel, word etc available. On my phone (A3) you go into app manager and after selecting the offending article you cannot uninstall it unless you have root permissions. If however, you select disable this ...

Re: Sat Navs

Having worked in breakdown and recovery for about 14 years I bought one as I thought it would be constantly used, but found I only ever used it if I was going somewhere I'd never been or heard of. Maybe it's an age thing but a good map and a bit of common sense works every time. Naturally I exclude ...

Re: Photos (a few more)

The road from Aradena down to Phoenix via Livaniana is a trifle more fear inducing as it is still basically a goat track used mainly by the few hill walkers who holiday down there. I hope they never upgrade the road as it adds to the rural feel although I dare say the locals would disagree.
