old people because I had/have respect for them, lets face it, if it wasn’t for them we would all be talking German! If it wasn't for 'old people' you wouldn't even be here :wink: As for the speaking German, a while back I had an email from a Australian veteran and under his name was the signature l...

I don't think so. The section from Hamezi to Sitia has only moved along a few metres in the last two years. Allow at least another 10 at this rate.

Paul, I think you miss the point of what I am saying.

So much for the "one off" increase last year which has been maintained, and increased! The "one off" addition last year was for age. Last year the bill for a 2000cc car was 428E + 150E, a 'one off Green Tax' because of engine size. If the car was over a certain age then a furthe...

I must admit that when I first road it I wondered if I had wasted my money (about 3000E) and it seemed to have a mind of its own. It did not take ...
