Re: Greece Referendum

Satcure I'm impressed at your contribution to the Oxford Dictionary "Modern Russia" Is this the modern Russia that masses thousands of troops and tanks on their neighbor's doorstep. That annexes Crimea, that orders fifty new nuclear missiles in an attempt to kick-start the arms race once a...

Re: Greece Referendum

Earlier from the BBC website. "Earlier, European Commission vice-president, Valdis Dombrovskis, the vice-president with responsibility for the euro said that the referendum question on which Greek voters are being asked to vote “is neither factually nor legally correct.” “ The proposals of the ...

Re: Greece Referendum

Come on Kilkis. When you are challenged you start to qualify your statements. I can only deal with what's written. The Russia of today is as deadly as it has ever been. Look at the Baltics they are trembling, look at Ukraine they will be kept destabilized as a minimum. look at Georgia, look at Chech...

Re: Greece Referendum

'I don't see Russia as any more or less evil than the USA or the EU' I was really enjoying your piece, and impressed with the amount of effort you put into it, until I came to the above statement. Needless to say I would have choked on my toast if I was eating toast. If you equate Russia's values an...

Re: Greece Referendum

Ok, let me say it again, It's illegal, it requires a minimum of two weeks lead in before the electorate are ask to vote on it. The substance of the referendum is contained in two lengthy documents that are not before the voter. The consensus of the experts is that the wording must be kept as simple ...

Re: Greece Referendum

The referendum is illegal, the wording or lack of it is incredible. 99% will not know what they are really voting on. As I said the people voted for the regimes over the years, but Tsipras takes the biscuit. The greeks, in general, are a well educated people and they knew what they were doing. They ...

Re: Greece Referendum

Hey come on. Tsipras rides into town in January promising the electorate he would end austerity. He of course became a hostage to fortune with this policy. The fortune is now coming to pass. He can't back down now for obvious reasons. Nevertheless he has brought the country to the brink of ruin. It ...

Re: Varoufakis in Chania for Independence Day

Come on Kilkis you have to be joking. Russia is two thirds of the way back down the road to 'Stalinism' is that what you wish for? No system is perfect and no countries foreign policy is perfect but for all the Yanks faults I would rather them anyday than Putin's Russia and so I suspect would the va...

Re: Varoufakis in Chania for Independence Day

'It's also worth noting that there is some evidence that when Gorbachev introduced his policies of glasnost (openness) and perestroika (restructuring), that resulted in the break up of the Soviet empire, he did a secret deal with the west that NATO would not expand its sphere of influence into the f...

I used Nomad International last year to bring goods back to Ireland. I cannot speak highly enough about their professionalism efficiency and courtesy.
The guy I dealt went by the name of Danny, and he was brilliant.

Yes there will be a new objective value on the latest sale. One thing though, the tax man has made alterations to the objective value zones. What this means is that where Crete had, heretofore, a very generous objective value i.e. a very low valuation compared, for example, with parts of Athens this...

Now now PP I would have thought you knew the 'pen is mightier than the sword'. In any event, just make sure you have sufficient life insurance when you talk that big.
