Re: A blog about moving to Andalucia

From a quick look, including the pictures of the caves, I assume before renovation there seems like a mass of work to be done. I have been interested in seeing cave properties, some conversions look brilliant. The one thing I wonder are they located in regions that have colder winters? I will read t...

Re: Explosion at Brussels Airport.

Welcome to never ending war, One answer to defeat Isis would be a coalition as in the first gulf war and go in and take over Syria and all their territory. There is no appetite for that with western governments, particularly after the fiasco of Afghanistan and Iraq, It probably would not decrease th...

Re: Explosion at Brussels Airport.

Just a note the sniffer dogs at US airports etc, are mainly there to stop imports of fruit and certain food stuffs, also probably drugs, We got caught by a cute little beagle that found a tomato We had forgotten in a cooler we had used the day before. Terrorisms aim is to disrupt free societies and ...

Re: What effect on us if GB leaves the EU?

Girlingfoss, the link you posted above is to an Estate Agency trying to flog houses in Spain. Of course they are going to put their spin on this. So it is all rubbish then? I read the question at the start of the thread was "What effect on us if GB leaves the UK" referring I thought to ex...

Re: What effect on us if GB leaves the EU?

It seems the thread has got somewhat off topic I thin the following from the Viva blog might be of interest as it does show the advantages to Brits in Spain of the EU.

Re: What effect on us if GB leaves the EU?

There is no way of knowing what the effect will be. The out campaign and its followers all say don't worry be happy everything will be fine. There is absolutely nothing to prove that. If the vote goes their way the out side of the Tories will take over the government and would not be interested in h...

Re: What effect on us if GB leaves the EU?

Mainly because I am British and therefore an Expat. More importantly to me we are exploring moving to Spain and are coming for eight weeks beginning May to look at places to live. Being pensioners it is important to us if there is an exit, so for that it is a purely selfish reason. We have always be...

Re: What effect on us if GB leaves the EU?

We just don't know because it's all speculation. Speculation on no known facts, speculation based on times long ago. The loss will be huge, the gain is based on certain angry peoples fantasies. All egged on by a few media moguls to sell papers, and politicians looking for political gain. Whatever h...

Re: What effect on us if GB leaves the EU?

Do not worry be happy, nothing will change, the out campaign assures us, based on facts that are 50 years old, when the world was a very different place. If you are willing to risk that life will not change for expats then you are kidding yourselves. THE EU is not going to roll over and invite us ba...

Except ones thinking of moving here, like myself. And for myself, they don't do anything daft like voting for an exit.
