Re: What will you do today?

A complete farce, not recognised by the sport governing bodies. An advertising/marketing stunt. Sorry. Alan The thing is this was run on a flat straight road. Up and down it several times. Not in effect a Marathon. It is not recognized as such by the Guiness book of records. However having said tha...

Re: Encouraging news over Brexit.

I wonder if Boris offered to give NI to Ireland to resolve the border issues, bearing in mind NI voted to remain in the EU.

Re: New handheld devices for Paphos traffic wardens

It's all very well issuing tickets, but will it make any difference to the mindlessness of some who possibly don't care and/or don't pay anyway!? It was my bad that I didn't pay, I knew it was a pay car park but in my defense I have parked there 5 days a week for the last 12 years and never have pa...

Re: Cypriot organisations join forces to demand British woman in Napa rape case is freed

Read this today about a rape case at a UK court, an interesting read about rape case(s) in court. Also written by a woman. Sitting with 11 strangers in the jury box of an English crown court, the story of a girl's rape by a young man she hardly knew in the bedroom of her home one Friday night rang t...

Re: New handheld devices for Paphos traffic wardens

Today I became the proud owner of an €8 parking ticket here in sunny Limassol. No fancy handheld wifi machine, just good old fashioned hand written ticket, also having the wrong address to pay the fine. Speaking to the issuing traffic warden (A sergeant no less) he said that the local communities ha...

Re: Kurds Stabed in the Back

In the BBC article mention by Dominic, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-49966216 part of the read says - The US has some 1,000 troops across Syria, but only about two dozen had been pulled out from the border area, according to a senior state department official.

Hardly a mass retreat!

Re: operated without a licence last year

I wonder what the tour operators make of the hotels that do not have the required licence(s)? And why have they not checked and if not why not? Or if they did check why have they ignored it? I wonder what would happen when an insurance claim was made against the hotel, what would the response be by ...
