Re: The right to vote in the UK after 15 years

Historically, the belief that "there should be no taxation without representation" was one of the main reasons for the American Revolution and War of Independence between Britain and America.

I think we all know who won!

Re: Non Resident bank accounts

As a resident for over 20 years, I have never paid any charges at all for maintaining an account. I regularly transfer funds from the UK into my account and pay no extra charges.

Non residents may be treated differently but it is wrong of you to suggest that expat residents are badly treated.

Re: internet technical help needed

If you are using a Smart DNS service sometimes the servers they use get compromised and no longer work. First thing to do is get in touch with them and check the DNS servers they now use.

Re: No tourists until after summer

The vaccination certificate from Andalucia Salud has a QR code and gives your name, NIE, NUHSA number and vaccine date.

What the official EU version will look like I know not.

Re: Paying car tax

You can only pay it to the town hall. The province you live in is irrelevant as it is the town that decided how much you will pay and you have to pay them. Whether you can pay online depends on whether the town hall allows you to do that.

I'm not aware anyone said it was paid to the Junta.

When I moved from Málaga province to Granada province, I went to the town hall to get a new Padron and they sorted out the car tax and a few other things as well.

Re: Renta 2020

The A.coM FAQ is excellent but does not actually tell you how to input the amounts. It was never intended to be a guide to actually making your declaration. I did write one years ago and it ran to about 20 pages as there are so many options unless you have a simple income profile. Add to that the a...

Re: Muddy water circulating in pool

I had this problem years ago when the road outside our house was a dirt track. The very fine dust that blew over into the pool was too fine for the sand filter to remove it. From then on we always vacuumed to waste. Sand filters are not very efficient when it comes to very fine particles. You can tr...

Re: No tourists until after summer

Re: Building options

We built a house in 2002 using Spanish builders - brilliant builders. Trying as hard as we could there was nothing to put on the snagging list. As for foundations, they were huge and contained a massive amount of steel. It took 6 cement lorries to fill them. Far better than in the UK. Smooth plaster...

Re: Pro Innate Immunity or Anti Vax - Adverse reactions, Etc

I looked at one recently. In the 1 in 10 section the top of the list was Heart Attack!

Sometimes if you have two different medical conditions the drugs for one make the other...

The main advantage of a [email protected] is that it is portable and doesn't need to be locked to a particular device, but it can be more complicated to use than a DC.

Re: Covid Restrictions Andalucia

No. If a town has a municipal closure due to over 500 cases no one is allowed in or out. The lifting of the provincial borders does not change that.
