And I've just seen a couple of policemen enjoying a beer in the local taverna, before they went out on patrol...
I so love the relaxed atmosphere here.....
How do you know that they were going out on patrol?

It only comes into law if it's reciprocated by the UK government so just clarification of the EU position.

Don't think there's a lot of doubt about that given the number of Cypriots in the UK!

Re: Smoking in Ambulance

Not as bad as the petrol tanker driver smoking whilst delivering petrol at the local petrol station! Petrol attendants in my local station smoke and drink coffee, ten feet away from pumps while petrol is being dispensed, only a matter of time. I was once having a crafty fag in the loo of a ferry bo...

I mean that the only fish left in the sea off Cyprus will be farmed fish due to over fishing.
What has this got to do with a fish restaurant revue?

Re: Smoking in Ambulance

A few days ago I was parked outside Papantoniou Bakery at the Tremithousa junction while my daughter was inside buying something. As she came out she noticed a state run ambulance also parked outside with a male nurse/operative sitting in the passenger seat smoking while the driver was also in the ...

Re: Paphos marina study to look at option to include cruise ship facilities

The original plans of 10 - 12 years ago, included a cruise terminal at Potima. This was then removed due to cost reasons. Potima was chosen as it has the depth to suit cruise ships and is an unsuitable bay for bathing. It is also close enough to Paphos for easy transportation. Tourists on cruise li...

Re: Paphos marina study to look at option to include cruise ship facilities

A cruise ship and Marina facility for Paphos would be excellent. It would bring in huge cash flow. IMHO cruise ships make a big percentage of their cash by selling excursions, so if they dock in Paphos, the ship would be looking to bus people further out Troodos Mountains/ Larnaca/ Nicosia, where t...

In last night's debate Johnson not only reminded us of Peter Sellers' "Party Political Speech", but also what a coward he is in failing to criticise Trump for his despicable tirade against the Ambassador and Theresa May, and refusing to give a yes or no as to whether he would replace the Ambassador...
