Re: Storm Clouds.

Kamisiana, what are you rambling on about? Only for EU subsidies the west of Ireland would be denuded of small farmers with the consequent damage to uplands and mountains through lack of grazing by these small subsidised sheep farmers. I'm sure the same welcome situation pertains in many areas of Sc...

Re: Storm Clouds.

bigbluecheese, I do not wish to diminish the danger you and your colleagues were exposed to in Ulster. But, when I talk of wars I think you and most others on here have a good idea what I am talking about. The two World wars, it has been estimated, were the cause of at least 200,000,000 deaths and t...

Re: Storm Clouds.

For more years than I care to remember 'Paddy the Irish Man ' was the fall guy in all those Paddy Irish Man, Paddy the Englishman and Paddy the Scotsman jokes. But, at last redemption is at hand in the shape of Brexit voting Paddy the English man. No matter how foolish Irish paddy was portrayed in t...

Re: Storm Clouds.

Kamisiana, it has to be a windup! particularly your last paragraph. Europe has been free of war for the past seventy three years. The EU has played a major part in this miraculous development. So you wish to jeopardise this union by the voting to leave - shooting yourself in the foot is an apt analo...

Re: Storm Clouds.

I will make some teeny weeny allowance for any expat who voted leave giving the blatant lies the Leave side promulgated on the lead in to the referendum. But, to continue arguing in favour of leaving in spite of the myriad of serious problems leaving will entail, beggars belief, and leaves open the ...

Re: Storm Clouds.

Poppycock Mixos. The eu, all 27 countries have roughly 3 million people in the UK, one country, the UK have approx one and a half million in EU countries. Needless to say the EU citizens age profile is vastly different than expats living on the continent . The bulk of expats are in the late middle a...

Re: Storm Clouds.

Thank you Mouche for the link, Thank you Warwick for the reasoned response. Fillipos the import of the select committees evidence cannot escape you, is pretty obvious except for those who wish to nit-pick. I accept that I didn't preface my remarks by not including 'in the event of a no deal' - somet...

Storm Clouds.

British state pensions will not be paid into EU bank accounts after Brexit. EU health cards to be withdrawn from non EU citizens. EU Driver licences valid for EU citizens only after Brexit. Many other EU recognised Certificates valid for EU citizens only. And many expats argued for this nightmare! -...

Re: Roman Catholic Easter service in Irareptra

I don't know if this is any help. Although I'm not religious I remember going to a Roman Catholic Mass in Agios Nicolaos with a friend of mine. He explained to me that the Greek Orthodox church loaned their church to the Catholic priest for a service once a week or once a fortnight.

Latest, negotiations will not progress until the Irish border issue is settled satisfactorily - the abyss beckons!

I-BANK

This may be of some help. Just returned from Crete after a great two week holiday. Part of my mission was to open an I-Bank account. My situation was of having a current account in Greece subject to the usual capital controls that are currently in place. This permitted a weekly withdrawal of 420 eur...

Re: Ballot papers

Of course I meant billions Warwick. Yeah, Diane Abbot's maths aren't the best. Very poor form for a potential senior Minister. I see Gove made similar mistakes but escape the wrath of the sycophant newspapers/propaganda sheets. BTW Warwick , your analysis of the the entire Brexit debacle is excellen...

Re: Ballot papers

Excellent contribution Warwick. Of course the opening item on the agenda, £50/60 million divorce bill will scupper the talks. If paid it will scupper May and the Tories, if not paid it will scupper the negotiations and hence the British economy. May and her cronies knows this, hence the outlandish m...

Re: Ballot papers

It's now apparent that May wants to throw the election. The Tory manifesto is possibly the worst I have witnessed in sixty years. Me thinks May knows that Brexit is impossible to deliver on without destroying the British economy, hence the deliberately aggressive and savage manifesto, particularly i...

Re: Thought we'd seen the back of him

For goodness sake wise up and remove the blinkers before you fall into the Brexit abyss. The message is what matters. Blair's argument, for the most part, was irrefutable and brilliantly delivered. Blair knew what to expect from the nay- sayers but for anyone who was prepared to hear him out he made...
