Re: Speculation of royal death at palace

People have different opinions - we are not all robots, brainwashed or trained monkeys in that we cannot think or speak up for ourselves. We all have different ways of saying what we feel too. Some may be more eloquent than others and some may be very blunt. Others may be very passionate about what...

Re: Speculation of royal death at palace

All forums have problems with rough members, Baz and I worked very hard over 16 years to remove some of them, unfortunately, some joined Dominic's new venture, you can't keep them all at bay, they are bored with their little lives they have to inflict this on some of us, take no notice.

Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

If I pay someone to service my car, is that a bung, because I dont have the expertise to do it myself? If I cant read and write Greek and I pay someone to fill a form out is that a bung...not in my book, Im living in a country whos official language is Greek/Turkish, and as I haven't learnt either l...

Re: Filmon no longer free!!

I know alot of people back in the UK who have stopped paying, when someone comes round,( the BBC uses firms on commission to knock on your door), to collect the unpaid fee, just tell them to get lost..They have no right to enter your house..You tube will show you many such cases. a couple of friends...

Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

Out side many Govt places you will find many full time form fillers, I have used them when I Had to register a car, they provided the stamps filled out my forms, which were in Greek... I was pleased they were there to help me.....not a scam, they provide a service, no one has to use them.

Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

Because some things haven't changed in a hundred years it dosnt mean you have to accept them...this isnt a Cypriot v Expat thing,,,,it affects us all.....you could say the way Victorians put kids up chimneys was the way it was, according to your thinking you should accept it and dont change it.....

Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

Agree100% the Cypriots with a relation/friend working in a Government dept will get them to sort things out, the ones without a friend/relation will stay at the back of the line...I dont care how HIC spins it in this day and age its disgusting you have to pay someone to get you what is legally yours.

Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

At the end of the day, the money is legally yours whether it be overpayments or pensions. Nobody should have to pay someone to get it paid out, particularly in the case of a pension! Lack of staff is not an excuse and I still say I don't believe the local people will sit back and wait for it to be ...

Re: Cypriot Pension paid to UK

Please read what I said again....I wasn't berating you personally..I was berating the system that drives people to use agents, I cant see the need for you to bring up Syria/Iraq etc into a discussion, about pensions?.

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...

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...
