Re: Illegally parked cars should be towed away

Even without cars parked on pavements, Cyprus isn't wheelchair friendly, only realised how bad it was when I had to push a relative about, who was over for a visit, Kerbs too high/ trees/ restaurant chairs tables/ kiosk, shop wares on pavement / shop advert boards , in the end I was pushing the whee...

Re: Does David Cameron regret the referendum...

Lloyd name calling has become an unchecked habit, which he continues to 'get away with' it's tedious and childish. He doesn't upset me, but he knows full well it niggles, and he constantly get's away with it. Admin has asked how many times I have complained to him, I have not up to now, but now I h...

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? I dont know about anyone else, but I have l...

Re: Does David Cameron regret the referendum...

If people get their knickers in a twist, because someone calls them a twerp, then really public forums might not be for you, have we really got to the point were people complain to Dominic, over the word twerp, feel free to call me that, I promise I will not need counselling. :roll:

Re: Where have all the frogs gone?

When we came here in 2004, we had numerous Cyprus Tree Frogs not only in our garden but also in the surrounding gardens. Despite being incredibly noisy at mating time, we delighted in seeing them. For the past few years now we have not heard a single frog let alone seen any. Is this just our local ...

Another factor no one has mentioned is, in the UK as well as other countries, bread and milk are used as lost leaders to bring in the customers.

Re: Does David Cameron regret the referendum...

I think Cameron is the last person to lecture any one, considering how the decisions he made regards Syria and Libya, caused thousands of deaths, that should keep him up at night rather then the referendum. https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/libya-civil-war-david-cameron-gaddafi-bombing-brexit-a88...

Re: Cyprus has fifth most expensive bread, cereals in EU28 (table)

I can get a large sliced loaf of white bread for one euro, hardly expensive, or six large pitta breads for 99c, no rip off there, if you want the Uk frozen bread then dont moan if they charge two or three euro, or what ever they charge

Re: Cyprus has fifth most expensive bread, cereals in EU28 (table)

There seem to be all sorts of excuses for this.Ranging from Cyprus is a small market, shipping is expensive etc. Aren't those valid reasons though? Mass market = cheap prices, limited market = higher prices? Do you know how much it costs to bring a container from the UK to Cyprus? It runs into thou...
