Re: Marks and Spencer Heraklion

Can anyone familiar with M&S in Heraklion please advise whether they have a good range of men's suits? Plenty on the website, I'm well aware, but want to check quality/fit without the faff of possibly having to return. I have not visited them this year, but last year and on other year visits th...

Re: Mobile phone scam

Alternatively have you tried asking in a Cosmote shop. Ask them to deactivate the automatic package selection for you. Warwick Yes Warwick, this whole thread started following a visit to Germanos in Souda who insisted that we could not avoid the 'free gift'. Once we had topped up the phone in the G...

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

I always maintain that people should be able to do whatever they want in the privacy of their own homes but I wouldn't mention it if you ever have to have a psychiatric evaluation, Jeff.

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: Sitia Closed?

...Avoid Ierapetra on St George's Day (23 April)... Out of curiosity what do the St George churches and the towns/cities with St George's as their main church do when 23 April is within lent? Individuals normally put off their name day celebration until after Pascha, usually to Easter Monday. Does ...

Re: Sitia Closed?

Correct. Everything shut on St Catherine's day. Avoid Ierapetra on St George's Day (23 April) and Ag Nik on 6 December for the same reason!

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

Your last paragraph just goes to emphasise what I have been saying for a long time - admittedly in respect of some of the blatant lies being peddled on all sides: "Say it loud enough, often enough and eventually people will believe it". It reminds me of that chorus from Handel's 'Messiah'...

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

I guess we just look at life differently. Some of us feel that the removal of our rights is something worthy of complaint and we will do what we can to ensure that we can continue to live here. We came here in 2006. We have already survived the Greek crisis, with its fairly drastic effect on our in...

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

The above is my understanding too. But Brexit has ground down the 2 expats in this house so far that we'd almost welcome a poor deal just to avoid a no-deal, if only to allow breathing space to Dec 2020 to sell up and return to the UK. It has ground down the 2 immigrants in this house as well, Glen...

Re: Greek Government website for UK citizens re Brexit

Hi, altohb, just wanted to say huge thanks for postal proxy tip. It’s now all done and dusted and a great weight off my mind. Glad you got it sorted, Kookla! It wasn't my idea originally, but I was certainly pleased to have come across it! Given the tight timetable for this election it is definitel...
