Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

I had my first AZ jab yesterday. I was called on Tuesday for appointment Wednesday. I went a bit early, went straight through to a small queue, having been given a number. I did not show any ID, just pointed out my name on the list. In and out in 20 minutes including a 10 minute sit down.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

It is bizarre how people search for loopholes. Why not just tow the line? If you want a real laugh follow the blunders of one Laurence Fox, ex-actor and failed musician. He is now running for London Mayor and he is anti everything. He maintains he has some sort of needle phobia, but seems plastered ...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

I agree that we should stick to reportage on the vaccinations in Spain. Anecdotal evidence from residents in Andalucia is interesting and informative. Anecdotal evidence from other countries is meaningless and not helpful, given the purpose of this particular forum. Perhaps posters could indicate if...

All people who come here benefit from driving on the roads, walking in the street on the pavements, policing, emergency healthcare, garbage collection, street cleaning sewage etc etc all public services.

Re: The 90 day Allowance & Deportations?

Two wrongs do not make a right. At least if Spanish are stopped they probably have documentation and can be pursued. Neither is right, but the British are guests in this country. My understanding is that it is not easy to get an ITV on a UK reg car and so no insurance. It is not done 'by mistake'. I...

CARREFOUR BOUGHT SUPERSOL

We have a Supersol locally and it is very below par. I know many of the others are not, I think this one is the Siberia of Supersols. They are gradually introducing Carrefour products but no-one there seems to know when they will rebrand and completely take over. The staff do not know, but having sa...

Re: TREADING CAREFULLY MIXERS

Wicksey, disdainers who leap in every time I post, whatever I say... not Lidl!!!

The can is very identifiable as it is very pink. I think it was 22 cents per 33cl, making it a Euro a litre. I would say it has a very tonic-ey taste but not anything else I can detect. Quite a strong taste.

Re: IF YOU ARE PROLIFIC CRIMINAL WHY HAVE A TATTOO?

I would like to point out that I was asking why, if you wanted to lead a life of crime why would you have them, a tattoo was quite an identifying feature. I in no way implied that all those that have tattoos are criminals! After all, Cheryl (Cole) has an enormous one on her behind and I do not think...

IF YOU ARE PROLIFIC CRIMINAL WHY HAVE A TATTOO?

This has always confused me, if you are a criminal why have a body identifying tattoo. Just a thought? Is it a way to identify people, it must be. So Why?

I have found a great mixer from Lidl which is Tonica Pink, Baja en calorias. It is great. Wait for the disdainers & disclaimers

Mark, to answer your question about 'woke'. I think they got to 'woke' because 'politically correct' was a bit complicated for them. It appears to be unfashionable in certain quarters to actually care about your fellow human beings, the environment, or anything that does not drum up dosh for the 1% ...

Yes. It does seem particularly English to joke about poor asylum seekers and refugees fleeing from wars primarily caused or certainly helped along by countries like UK and USA. I am sure the illegal Brits from Spain will delight in being slung into an old army camp unfit for human habitation. This i...

Re: Thousands of British expats in Spain remain “exposed and unprotected”

If people keep referring to 'Europe' what continent does UK belong to? It seems EU and Europe are interchangeable, and they are not the same thing. Rather like people confusing the CJEU and ECHR.

All over Twitter today is the stories of woe of British who have not, for reasons various, not obtained residencia and possibly face deportation come Thursday.

Would You Dob Someone in to DHSS/HMtax etc

If you knew someone was doing it would you? Claiming benefits from UK while in Spain.

What would you do? I certainly have heard many even bragging about it, and I do not even know many British people, so I do not know how widespread it is.

So....?
