Re: Any providers of Travel Insurance to Spain despite the FCO advise?

This is only my opinion but I would not trust any insurance company to pay up for any thing any where, any time in the foreseeable future you can be absolutely certain that they will take your money but getting them to pay up will be another matter, as I said only my opinion !

Re: Purchase home with Spanish citizen

You may not like my opinion but ask yourself several very important questions, why is the Spanish citizen not living in Spain but wants a home there, and is he planning to live there, will he be investing in cash the same amount as you ? If You are not a Spanish citizen or planning to live there the...

Re: Anyone read a good book lately ?

The best book I've read in recent years is a Stephen King book the title is 11.22.63. It's not a thriller or a horror book , the best way to describe it would be to say t's a kind of back to the future book for adults who have a good imagination. It was published in 2011 but I only discovered it a c...

Re: Beckhams Law

Did you actually read the article? Nowhere does it say that you don't pay tax in Spain, just that it will be less. Sid Yes, I did read the article and if my interpret it correctly it would allow people who use this loophole to avoid paying some taxes in Spain therefore depriving Spain of some taxes...

Re: Beckhams Law

I think it's safe to say he won't be receiving residency status with his tax position and current economic conditions in Spain, why should we allow him to live and work here but pay his taxes elsewhere, he will fall, and rightly so !

I don't believe that I, Katy or anyone else is trying to "justify" slavery, merely reciting the facts, without the connivence of the many black tribes in Africa it's doubtful that slavery as it existed then would have been so prolific mainly because caucasians were scared of going into the heart of ...
