Re: BBC take on domestic help and murders

1. I don't find the BBC is particularly biased either to left or right

2. I'm fairly sure that for every mistreatment of an oriental helper, there are a hundred who are treated correctly.

Re: BBC take on domestic help and murders

BBC is probably one of the worst news services out there, their bias on many subjects shines like a beacon, I for one choose other more balanced news services. Can you please give chapter and verse where this article is biassed or otherwise wrong? I found that it presents a situation very well and ...

Re: Cypriot banks - recommendation?

No bank here is good. I prefer the Hellenic that I've used for 22 years as being the best of a bad bunch. I also had an a/c at the Bank of Cyprus but I closed it as being user-unfriendly and a tad greedy.

Varky, I do agree with you that she needs to be simply allowed back in, arrested immediately, without trial, and kept out of society for a long time.
That sounds perilously close to a concentration camp. Personally, I say never let her enter the UK and simply forget she existed.

They have a referendum and follow it up with a second referendum to decide whether to accept or reject what's on offer once the details have been thrashed out. I'm sure Devil can clarify this.

Yes! Terrible, but thank God that a crowded mass was not being celebrated at the outbreak. One fireman has unfortunately been injured but it could have been a lot worse on a human scale.
