I would agree with you wholeheartedly, Assimilate.

No resource on earth is infinite. The faster we use it the sooner it runs out.

In many cases saving energy is done with no loss of real amenity and often a gain in economy yet people still will not do it. I cannot understand why.

I think Dora is also a possible successor to Karamanlis?

Thanks Carol. I had always assumed he was part of the Venizelos clan. I will write out 500 times, "Must check my facts more carefully before posting".

All my Greek friends, who are all quite well educated, told me that they couldn’t understand a word Venizelos says. Apparently he constructs very convoluted sentences and uses rather archaic phraseology. Another thing to consider is ditching Papandreou for Venizelos would just be switching from one ...

Note also there was a new allocation system this time so seats won and lost in 2004 are not a true reflection of the varience compared against 2007 results But presumably the percentages of votes cast are a good representation. I think these show quite a big movement of votes to minor parties. Warw...

I have no allegiance to any party but if ND are going to be in power I guess it is better that they have an outright majority and don't need to rely on support from LA.OS other wise we might be reinstating the Grand Plan and invading Northern Epirus and Asia Minor.

Quote from the article "Britain's house price growth will be halved next year as the global financial crisis exacerbates the impact of rising mortgage rates, according to Nationwide, the biggest mortgage lender." One Northern Rock analyst is predicting a 30 to 40 % fall in house prices in ...

Well if John's idea is going to take off, someone has to be Compo. It was the recent posts about sweaty feet and dissolving trainers that gave me the idea. Perhaps Blamire would be more fitting? I am sure we could include characters that were not contemporary. As a know-it-all, I thought I would sui...

It does seem to have become used that way but if you look at its etymological roots it only means fear. Χενος – foreign, Φοβια – now translated directly as phobia but related to Φοβος – fear. I was just being frivolous. Warwick

Please don't misunderstand my earlier posts. I was not seeking to defend Northern Rock's business model in any way. I just felt Muttly's original post gave the impression that Northern Rock was in trouble because they were exposed to bad debt from the sub-prime problem. They are not. They had a busi...

I’ll give you two examples from your own post of some of the sort of things that worry me, Ray. Quote “Well over 90% of the Earth's greenhouse gas is water vapour, but we can do nothing about that” Water vapour is indeed the main greenhouse gas and while we do not influence it significantly directly...

Hi Ray Good to see a reply that doesn’t mention governments and taxes anywhere. Firstly let me state my personal position. I believe that human activity IS contributing to climate change. That does not mean that I necessarily believe all the predictions of the short-term consequences of climate chan...

Perhaps still driving round Piraeus trying to follow the very confusing signs.
