Re: Opening this Sunday 7 April

Bob, the shops are open on Sunday 21st April, the week before Easter. I'll post all Easter shop hours for Crete on the calendar thread (strikes, disruptions, bank hols) when I get chance to find them (just seen the Athens ones earier) Carol. One of these days I will learn to read properly! I read y...

Carol: Given that Easter Sunday is 28th, I presume you are giving 21st date as the last Sunday (i.e. Palm Sunday) that the shops are open? Bob.

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Thanks for that Bob. If you have hired a car from a UK company in the recent past and they have a photocopy of the licence you are trying to renew on record, you might get away with using the temporary extension licence that Greece is issuing now. No guarantees but perhaps worth asking in writing, ...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Further to my last, we went to the licensing office in Mournies this morning to get an extension to our paper-in-lieu-of-licence, and confirmed that the test for the 74 and over people is all done in the car park behind the building, and is 'Very Easy'. Still no prospect of our having our licences i...

Re: New! Greek Draft law on Brexit

[quote="Carolina"] I would guess that while holding the EU registration or residence card (cards as now stated to be valid to December 2020), then I guess yes you can still get hospital care if you have an AMKA number. Note that that law is for hospital care - inpatients/outpatients - only...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

If anybody is taking it I would love a report back on what is involved, in as much detail as they can manage. Good luck to all who take it. Warwick I have heard, second hand, that it involves driving around the large car park to the rear of the licensing office. Like you, would like to hear more ab...

Excellent. Just about to apply for the first extension to our 'temporary' papers. Maybe we will get the licences before July??? Bob.

Re: The Will of the People

So, have i got this right? 1. May offers to resign soon if her deal passes. 2. Some of those who were implacably opposed to the deal have said 'in that case we will change our minds and support the deal" 3. Which leads me to think that they are not really voting for the deal, but rather to get ...

Re: The Will of the People

1. I may be wrong, but This is just an observation, but it's becoming a bit like 'I have been perfectly clear'. Bob. I may be wrong, but I think you mean to say that I say this quite a bit, and by being said often, it is without meaning. Those two things are not auxiomatically connected. I am consc...

Re: The Will of the People

If the UK wanted to take back sovereignty it should have done so on day one. The government should have started preparing for a final outcome that they could have achieved whatever the EU did or said. They should not have triggered Article 50 until they had reached a position where they realistical...

Re: Revoke Article 50

Sadly, arguments about bias are unwinnable Warwick. In my experience, people hear what they want to hear, whether it is pro or con their own particular views. Far more interested in your assertion (which I have also made several times as well on this forum) that the Home Office in the UK is unfit fo...
