Re: Direct flights from the UK to Greece from 15th July confirmed.

Considering the USA is total insanity!


Insanity being the operative word. This is the response of some Americans to the idea of having to wear face masks:

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

Worth a read. It would be funny if it hadn't caused the maximum amount of hassle for thousands.

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

t’s a fair bet I am the only one on here who has worked with Stanley Johnson. Hope you washed your hands! Seriously Guy I admire very much the morality behind your and Maud's thinking – the concern that you might unwittingly take the virus into Greece, and sadly I think that is quite rare. Most tou...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

The good news: The European commission has launched an app and website that provide travellers with real-time information about coronavirus rules and the status of infections in each European country. The bad news: The Uk isn't involved. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jun/16/dismay-uk-fai...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

It seems fashionable at the moment to knock various governments for their handling of the pandemic, but these will be decisions that I'm glad I don't have to make. There is only one government on whose handling of the crisis I feel qualified to speak, and since, when I lived in Crete, I castigated ...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

Talking of nasty viruses, ever since I tried to link my PC to my smart phone and gave up in the face of Microsoft gibberish, I have been getting regular notifications from something that calls itself a newspaper popping up at the side of my screen. Weather too lovely to sit and tinker with the setti...

Re: A New Case

It didn't strike me as the most hygienic of places. I think this is a real problem. Having had more experience than I would have wished of three major Cretan hospitals - both inpatient and outpatient facilities - I have nothing but praise for the doctors, particularly the overworked and underpaid j...

I think most of us realise there is no such person as "Saddler". There is just a "Sad"....who is best ignored.

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

As always choose the cock-up theory not the conspiracy theory. It is always possible that it is both. That alongside the mind-boggling, widespread and repetitive incompetence, there is a nasty little undercover scheme to take another tack. Early on in the crisis the government talked about trying t...

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

That's one theory being touted Jean, but I think the truth is, it's just another example of the criminal incompetence with which the crisis is being handled by the British government, Every measure they take is being taken far too late, and they are killing people as a result. The belated lockdown w...
