Re: Bercow Stops Third Vote

Lets see if I have this right. Those who are saying the "deal" should be voted on for a 3rd time are saying that parliament should ditch the rules and have the vote because they say it's democratic to do that. They also are against a 2nd referendum because the question has been asked already and to ...

Re: Is S1 redundant ?

The fact of the matter is we just don't know. Nobody (e.g. Cyprus Govt, High Commission) are telling us anything. When you do ask, nobody knows.

However, logic says that the S1 will continue, as without it we would be asked for the full cost of treatment which would be a lot more than 1.7% of income.

Wise words Dominic. I agree that such things should be after the event. PMs could suffice during an absence.

I left Devon 43 years ago, yet it identified my accent as from there.

Re: New Horizon Pub

I went a while back for a beer while waiting for someone. No Leon, no Carlsberg. Keo and Carling were available, neither of which I am fond of. I guess it is geared up for the tourist market.

Re: Imported Japanese cars.

I have had a "band expander" fitted and, as you say, the rest of the audio side of things was fairly intuitive. My difficulty is with the phone and sat nav side of things, plus the clock on the main display. I did think of trying the dealer, but they are generally reluctant to get involved with "gre...

Imported Japanese cars.

I have acquired a secondhand car which has been imported from Japan and, unsurprisingly, the infotainment system and dashboard software is in Japanese. Unfortunately I don't read Japanese and so wish to change it to English. Mr Google has supplied me with a car manual which is the closest to the act...

Re: Medical White Card - Renewal

I need to change the address on my medical card. I assume it can be done at the Citizens Service Centre. Has anyone done this?

Re: Anastasiades will meet Akinci with an 'open attitude'

He may have had an open attitude in the past, supporting the Anan plan etc. But his stance of late shows just the opposite.

Re: Massive landslide blocks Old Theletra road

It's a fascinating place and I often go there when in the area. The church is still in use, as are some of the houses. It seems there is a gradual move of people into the village.

Re: Taking Filipina Domestic Worker to UK

Ah yes, more Daily Mail type nonsense. For those with no right of settlement in the UK the actuality is that the "roof over their head" is likely to be a Detention Centre, complete with guard dogs and razor wire. You will find them at: Brook House, Gatwick Campsfield House, Oxfordshire Colnbrook, Mi...

Re: Ready to resume talks immediately, Anastasiades says

If they did walk away I would force the administrations to talk to each other (police, health service etc).
