Re: staying in cyprus

Maybe not. We came here pre EU and it was simple back then. Who knows post Brexit! Sorry Jim, I must disagree here, it wasn't simple, particularly if you wanted to work.... Perhaps you. were pre EU, but when they were close to joining I will say again, it was simple for us. Far easier than I though...

WHL Please yourself whether you complain or not, I care not. I complained BECAUSE that's what Admin said I should do. And no it doesn't upset me, if I'm upset I cry, Lloyd is the last person to achieve that. You say 'give it back' but as I said that brings us down to playground level. Anchor, what ...

Re: staying in cyprus

You will have to register with immigration if you decide to stay longer. They are very helpful and for us it was a fairly simple process, but we did use an agent. It is easy enough to do on your own though. Might not be so easy after Brexit Maybe not. We came here pre EU and it was simple back then...

Re: Does David Cameron regret the referendum...

Aside from all the pros and cons differences between the 2 differing viewpoints, does anyone on here really believe Blojo is altruistic in his "do or die, I'll break the law if necessary to leave on 31 Oct" because that's delivering the referendum result?

Re: Does David Cameron regret the referendum...

My reaction mirrors that of Jim's, but could I just ask you Outasite if you live permanently here, because for many of us who do the possibility of loss of health care and a weak pound v the euro are big reasons to be against leaving with no deal. Those living in the UK, these are of little conseque...

Re: Changing GP under new Gesy

When you log on to your account there is provision to request a doctor change and it comes up with a list of available ones close to you. It doesn't look like you have to give a reason, but I haven't progressed further than looking so not 100% sure on that

Re: Confused dot com

Looking at all this another way. If you go to your doctor because something is wrong with you, and you then have a prescription for medication, it will have a listing of possible side effects. In the main some will not affect you at all, some lesser ones might, some may make you ill, or rarely even...

If you paid for foodstuff by taste, bread in the UK supermarkets should be 5p a loaf. Fruit and Veg should be free and Pork 50p a Kg.....

Maggie write down the pros and cons for both sides as you see them and how they affect yourself and your family. I find this helps when trying to choose between 2 things where the choice is difficult

Re: Residency/Brexit- From B H C.

Lincoln, Not sure where the message came from or when it was issued, but I know 3 people who have all lived here long term well over 5 years. They all seem adamant that their previous yellow slips, ARC’s or stamps in their passports are sufficient. Is there anywhere that I can get a copy of the abo...

Re: YellowHammer Docs releases

Surely that hedge fund figure is pretty meaningless. Hedge funds, in my fairly limited experience of the city, are used to offset some of the risks that the rest of the bank have taken. So if most of the bank are buying shares on the assumption that there will be a deal, it would make sense to have...

How is he "squirming out of it" He has been forced to seek an extension which he will do. Adding his opinion to it is not, as far as I know illegal. He is saying what many are thinking, end this circus now. I can't for the life of me see how that is "nasty" What is nasty, is that he intends the let...

Re: Hospital specialists, GP’s and Gesy

This happened to my husband yesterday. Has been seeing a specialist at Paphos General for 15 years (originally referred by GP). Went for his appointment yesterday and was told could not be seen without GP referral. Was told needed to pay €30 to register (been registered for 15 years) but was unable...
