Re: UK car to Crete Import cost?

If you import a car for your personal use at 'very little cost' there used to be a condition imposed as to how long you had to keep the car before you could sell it in Greece. Is this still the case?

Re: Alarming rise in cases on Crete.

If I remember correctly the east of Crete was occupied by Fascists and the rest of Crete by the National Socialist German Workers' Party, (Nazi's). Of the two the Fascists were not as harsh as the Nazi's.

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Crete is an island, Great Britain is an island, but England is not an island. It shares uncontrolled land borders with Wales and Scotland. How are these two countries going to prevent their residents from travelling to English Airports and flying from there? I'm sure Manchester, Newcastle and Bristo...

Re: Cap on university places for medical students

Jean wrote It's expensive enough anyway compared to many other EU countries where universities are essentially free. There seems to be two systems of University Education 1) A system where university places are very restricted and only the very best students can attend. This allows the state to fund...

Re: Any rebates available?

I'm sure jackdaw is more than capable of defending himself, but I found the reactions to his post, although understandable, a little strong. What is the expression, you have to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes to understand them. No one knows anyone else’s circumstances. A person might have a suc...

Re: Car emissions test

When my car passes its MOT the tester tells me any ‘advisories’, highlights the date of the next MOT and the Date of the Emission Test. Two years later when I go back for the next MOT they never ask to see proof of the Emission Test. Is the Emission Test Data held centrally?

Re: Let's alter history

Oh look here's a parapet I'll stick my head over it. 1) I saw an interview on TV with one of the activists in Bristol who said (paraphrased) "We sent a petition to the Council to have it removed, they talked about it but did nothing, so we had to take action" However just the cause can the...

Re: Is long line fishing with multiple hooks from the beach illegal?

Various licences issued by the CoastGuard/Port Police were either abolished or relaxed some years ago. This coincided with a sharp reduction in the number of officers available. If you fished from a boat you needed a boat Licence, a licence to fish from the boat and everyone on board the boat needed...

Re: Green card car insurance.

Remember that the 'Green Card' only provides proof that you have third party insurance. Most Greek insurance companies do not provide comprehensive cover outside of Greece, they think driving outside of Greece is too risky! One even told me it was illegal to do so. It is worth checking with your ins...
