Re: Thought we'd seen the back of him

Exactly. Blair's opinion is no more likely to be true than anyone else's. Nobody knows His "opinion" re Iraq regime's *weapons of mass destruction* wasn't true ....but *irrevalencies* don't appear to have ever deterred megalomaniacs/despot/psychopath personalities/entities. (For me) Tony ...

Re: More Questions from the newbies

Thank you Warwick for your reply to my enquiry and also thank you Mackie for the link to the Varoufakis interview. I don't see that this amazing person (Varoufakis) has any disernible faults. He says exactly how things are/were without retort to ridiculous emotional nonsense. I hope his movement DiE...

Re: More Questions from the newbies

Kilkis siad: Despite his many faults, everything Varoufakis said about the economics of the bailout programme was correct. For me, he didn't/doesn't have m(any) faults ....I respect your point of view so please elaborate if you have the time I have to ask always, what is the "back story" t...

Re: Capital Control Issues

Good to see the Daily Mail maintaining its usual high standards of accuracy and journalistic excellence: "When Greece was rocked by an almighty financial earthquake in 2007 , the government implemented capital controls on the bank to stop everyone taking out their money all at once and crippli...

Re: Electric Bill

As far as I know, it is the law that a person has their identiy papers on them at all times - for Brits that would be their passport. Just to say regarding the non-smiling people - none of us can ever know what the other person might be going through. The 2 women may have been relatives (sisters/cou...

Re: ENFIA

I said LACK of drinkable water. The Med is badly polluted. Nevertheless, due to the composition of seawater (vital elements etc) there are health benefits to swimming in seawater. There are health dangers to swimming in chlorinated water. I think it is the law that pools should be filled with a bows...

Re: ENFIA

For me that is not the point. The point is that people with swimming pools should be paying to fill their pools via bowser(s) and NOT from the mains water supply. Just possibly that might reduce the amount of swimming pools. You will understand I am a bit anti (what for me) is the absurd idea of swi...

Could this be true?

(British) Person A dies (about 6years ago) and (so far) no heirs have come forward to take possession of the house. (I understand there was a British Will). Person A’s elderly immediate Greek neighbour dies and a Nephew inherits his Uncle’s house, does some work on it and sells it to Belgians. Nephe...

Re: Bank Accounts in Crete

Surely in this day and age of *the electornic paper trail* it should be a piece of cake to understand where any payment has come from? Am I missing something obvious here?

Re: Bank Accounts in Crete

I was in Pireaus bank a little earlier; they confirmed that 30% can be taken if the money has come from outside Greece.

Thank you for the alert - Pireaus have never volunteered this information (nor when earlier it was 10%).

Re: How do you report a doctor?

Kilkis said: The good thing about Greece, unlike the UK, is that you can go to a specialist without referral from a GP. OK, you have to pay but the costs are very low. I could agree that this is a good thing -vs- UK BUT the *specialist* is (most likely) still not looking and/or seeing the TOTALITY. ...
