Re: UK Bank accounts for ex pats

Just spoken to a friend who has so far been on hold for 15 minutes. Maybe lots of us are trying to regularise our existence in foreign parts!

Re: S1 form for healthcare cover

Ok, I should have said. I checked the opening hours, rang several times and waited and waited to no avail. I suppose I was verging on exhausted/fed up, etc., and on the next attempt mumbled to the automated voice message which failed to understand me and put me through to a patient, helpful lady cal...

Another fine mess!

Surely the escort to the hotel should have waited to see the tourist go inside? Not really her fault she had to find another hotel and at that time she did...

Re: Anyone wanting/needing to travel by air to Greece/Crete now.

I think it should have been pointed out that the people arriving in the report at Athens airport were not coming for a holiday. They would have and still will until the 30th of May required an excellent reason for their travel. Friends who have a house here in Greece arrived last Friday via Zürich a...
