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

If we don’t honour our debts a long legal case and no decent trading relationship with Europe awaits.

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

They’re all playing politics for their own ends - some to get into power, some to make money.

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

They’ve shorted the £ and stand to make millions on a No Deal Brexit. Nothing the government or the EU do will change that. The parliamentary arithmetic means no version of any agreement with the EU will pass; it’s not in the ERG’s interests.

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

But it’s not just the hardline tories and labour, don’t forget the SNP , green party and the Liberal democrats who won’t vote for any deal. The size of the majorities in parliament against the withdrawal agreement could only have been overturned by some combination involving one or both of the two ...

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

Labour will not vote for it because they want a sigle market - customs union solution. The parliamentary maths have not changed. Warwick What Labour want, possibly misguidedly given recent opinion polls, is a general election. Both major parties are only interested in saving their own skins. Some o...

For things like this I would use Nomad ..Crete Express..


We used Nomad to deliver an electric keyboard to Western Crete in July. They deliver to John the English butcher in Vamos. We had to get the keyboard to their warehouse outside Peterborough.

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

Have yourself a giggle and go on YouTube. Search for Jonathan Pie Brexit. I would post a link but there is quite a bit of swearing :D just tried to book tickets to see him but none left. You are right about the swearing. I did post the link above - apologies if it offended anyone. We saw Jonathan P...

Indeed. That’s the brutal reality of health care exposed to the private sector: we’re units of profit and if we’re likely to be loss-making we’re of no interest.

Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

A reality check: I think it is wise to disregard anything TMay said - she is history. Where we are now: Priti Patel wanting to cut EU’s right of abode in the UK asap, rather than after a transition period. UK government has much increased spending commitments. UK is right at the Brexit deal/no deal ...

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

This was the position before the Referendum and three years later still no one knows what the consequences will be of leaving.

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

Come on Maud. Blue passports. They’ll be so nice each EU country will set up a separate line at immigration so they can take a long envious look at them each time we try and get into Crete.

The same mystical thing must have happened in Rethymno in time for the summer tourist season.

Cats in Rethymno

Younger daughter loves cats, elder daughter hates them. Walking around Rethymno today elder daughter said ‘the problem is we’ll never get anywhere because we’ll have to stop each time there’s a cat’. So I said, let’s each guess how long it is until we see the next cat; I said 1 minute, she said 2, a...

Re: container home

When I worked in Africa we had a team on assignment in Southern Sudan when the country was first created and they lived in containers in Juba for more than a year when there were no hotels there. Never complained about it

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

Yeah it was leaked last year I think ...I suppose 'cos no deal is imminent it big news again .... Still passing it off as a new leak. Must think we are daft. I am sure leaders of both Remain and Leave sides think we are daft. All the evidence I have seen over the last three years suggests that they...
