Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

Not only is it not good.... It most certainly cannot be legal either. Is it only non-Cypriot claims that get pushed to the back of the queue or do the local people have to resort to paying a lawyer as well? Something stinks there! There's a scam in there, I can smell it.... I dont think it is a sca...

Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

Great for you guys, but in this day and age its disgusting that you can only get whats rightly yours (pension) by paying someone who has contacts to get you what you are legally entitled to, Not good . :(

Re: Interesting programme on ITV tonight

Thank you Poppy, but there is no partly/slightly in it, since Cyprus joined the EU, they have paid in more then they have received...you are correct that the UK is a major contributor, (unfairly paying too much in my book)

Re: Interesting programme on ITV tonight

Jim B -nothing against Cypriots or anyone else using our Universities and of course I know they pay to do so. I was just making the point that most Cypriots would be against Brexit because they would be worried about losing their University places. I an sure this will be fairly high on the negotiat...

Re: Interesting programme on ITV tonight

Of course Cypriots only see it from their point of view.They are beneficiaries of the EU funds whereas the UK has been a major contributor! They also depend on our Universities to educate their young so I would be surprised to hear any Cypriot support BREXIT. As JEBA said in another post Germany ar...

Re: Interesting programme on ITV tonight

Re: London Marathon

Whilst what the participants do for Charity is tremendous, I think that having ten or more African runners in the "professional" race has turned me off the event. Don't mean to be offensive to African runners but I do like to see Brits in British held events. Alan Oh you have got to be having a lau...

Re: Keo beer survey

Another odd thing, My Cypriot neighbour tells me, Carlsberg is the preferred beer, of right wing/conservative voters, and the left/socialist voting Cypriots prefer to drink KEO.....dont know where that puts me because I drink both.

Re: Keo beer survey

It is indeed. And I note that according to Wikipedia.. Keo beer was awarded a Gold Medal by the Brewing Industry International Awards.[3] In 2010 the appearance of the beer in a pornographic American film sparked a reaction by the largest shareholder in the company, the Orthodox Church of Cyprus.

In 1966 when Keo Beer was analysed the report stated that it was not fit for human consumption but would make an excellent weed killer.
Do you have a link for this amazing statement?
