Re: Three nine storey buildings to be built near Aquamare Hotel

Hi WHL, Where did I say that I liked antique dunnies!? I was only thinking about such things because they were mentioned on here. Yes, if you ever saw the back to back terraces in the run down parts of towns in the UK, circa early 1960's, you would have seen their 'back yards. Where from the road y...

Re: Three nine storey buildings to be built near Aquamare Hotel

WHL, when we bought our period cottage in 1991, in a village in Glos, the old 'dunny' was sill there, housed in its own stone walled shed, a short but draughty walk from the house! However it was a relic from the past, modern bathrooms having been created inside the house! So there was no need for ...

In the UK, we used to have something similar in the 'out house' in the back yard, way back when.

Slightly off topic but a new school was built in Paphos in the 90’s with a hole in the ground toilet so pretty sure they do still exist!
Im not talking about ceramic squat, type toilets, im talking about a plain good old hole, dug in the ground toilet.

Re: Customs Grab Ham Sandwiches

Incidentally, one of the many reasons that I like Brexit is the very real fact that, since the end of the transition period, one of my portfolios has risen by upwards of £50k. This represents the positivity felt by investors and business people in the long term potential of the UK economy post EU. ...

WHL, Why are you always so negative on issues such as this one? It would be better for everyone living on this island if a fair and mutually beneficial settlement could be made.

He was arguing that there was a real risk to their continued membership if they did not reunite and the RoC could not in practice ...

Re: 3,510 doses of Pfizer Vaccine expected to arrive on January 18

I cannot understand why the RP of Cyprus has given thousands of the vaccination drug to the North? Because the occupied north is ostensibly part of the EU as per the RoC treaty to join the EU. Of course, should talks resume and fail again, then the RoC membership would then slip into dodgy ground. ...
