Re: End of Summer Time 2018

According to the article I read, Bob, all European countries have to do it, or none. Tim Yes Tim, I missed that article, although my reading suggested it might be left to individual countries (chaos!). As to a vote (next post by Kamisiana) we lost the right to vote in the UK after 15 years of livin...

Re: Why Brexit is Right

I was referring to your assumption that I thought the EU was the best thing since the second coming of Christ.... A definite no to that. And no, I don't like the way a lot of things are done in the EU but there are positives as well. Not wishing to be too pedantic, but I don't think the 'second com...

How do know exactly what will happen when we leave?No one knows what will happen when we leave!If we do leave!Your post is just pure speculation NOT fact!

Re: Purchasing a house (and paying for it!)

Ah, the good old days when you simply handed over a wodge of cash in the notary's office and the relevant parties went outside and divvied it up to suit them all. Warwick When that happened to us Warwick, we had a few moments of panic in case someone came in and said they were €5K short! We were to...

Re: UK Govt Refuses to meet Bristish in Europe

The group British in Europe have been complaining for a very long time that nobody senior in UK government is prepared to meet with them while senior people in the EU have met them several times. As it stands at the moment, in the event of a no-deal Brexit UK citizens in the EU will have no legal s...

Re: Temporary Brexit Forum

Interesting points, Bob. Since MPs are supposed to represent the interests of their constituents perhaps the UK government should consider having one MP to represent ex-pats, or perhaps ex-pats who still pay tax there, and for whom only ex-pats vote? Currently each MP represents about 100,000 peopl...

Re: Temporary Brexit Forum

Although I find the whole Brexit situation fascinating/frightening/laughable in turn, there are only three things which really concern me as a Brit expat living in Crete. 1. It would be nice to have a vote in the UK given that I still pay income tax there. Boston Tea Party Syndrome. Although the Pri...
