Re: Lone and ill

As a 68 year old who lives 50/50 in Spain-Gran canaria I have to say that as brutal as this may sound, if I was in this position I would take myself out of the game, I mean seriously at this stage you have nothing to offer society so why bother, this is my personal opinion and if it offends tough !!

Re: Urbanisation squatters

There are, apparently, a couple of lads who label themselves "problem solvers" who work out of Calahonda, Big Tommy and Iron Mick who will apparently "make you an offer you can't refuse" however if you go down this road there's no guarantee that they won't return !!

My position would be that small rural area's can be very attractive to a certain section of society, there is nothing to stop these kind of communities being run on a co-operative basis. A local basic community tax would do i...

Re: Can UK O.A.P'S Survive in Spain On Basic Pensions.?

My own experience is that I live on approximately twice the average basic U K pension, I'm not reliant on that as I have other sources of income.
