Re: Covid Restrictions Andalucia

Anybody got any idea how oftentimes will be reviewed? So say my area goes to 600 tomorrow will I be shut straight away or only from following weekend? Or the opposite if I am 600 now and the numbers drop (as the 14 days pass since 10 people got a positive) are we let out straight away or do we have ...

Re: Coronavirus

It is still like that for arriving passengers in Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. The cost in Singapore is $2,000 SGD, about 1,300 EUR. The hotel is assigned when you arrive. You might get the Ritz or the Pitz and you are inside that room for 2 weeks, no exceptions. They did lockdown got it to ...

Re: Coronavirus

Some on British Social media this morning blaming Spaniards for bringing Covid to the UK in the first place as it appeared in immigrant areas. I love Dr. Facebook. No mention of all the flights at the time coming from China or Italy or indeed of all the British immigrants or holidaymakers returning ...

Re: TV

I would advise to try the Net uptime monitor A speed test is a snapshot from that moment in time. The speed can fluctuate and the connection can cut momentarily. Unless you are testing the speed at exactly that moment you are not getting all the information The monitor measures it for half an hour a...

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

Thanks I had a listen. My takeaway....Banks are just using this as a cover story to get rid of customers. There is an interview with Professor Sarah Hall (I read her profile online, if she doesn't know then nobody does), she comes to the conclusion...call HSBC they will open an account for you. So b...

Re: TV

I second the fibre vote...not really for the speed as if you have 5mbps you can stream anything....but for the reliability. Fibre doesn't drop the signal like my copper did.

Re: Municipal confinement?

Yes you are right only central government can do it....but there is nothing to stop central government ordering it. They are being asked for it and refusing to do it. I can't undertsand why central government refuse to do it.

Re: Municipal confinement?

The crazy thing is the central government devolved power to the regions for Covid....now when some regions want to lockdown they are not permitted to. I struggle to understand why central government would stop them

Re: Travel Covid requirements

The maths is very wrong. There are 31.536 million seconds in a year. So at 5 seconds a pop, that would be 6.307 million vaccine doses a year. At 2 doses per person means 3.15 million people vaccinated in a year. Either way it's fairly irrelevant given the role out numbers we have seen so far! How on...

Re: Municipal confinement?

Looks like municipal confinement will be re-introduced soon. Juanma Moreno will have a meeting this Friday (1 week earlier) than previously scheduled. They won't be meeting won't be to loosen restrictions...so that leaves only 1 alternative. Portugal will re introduce home confinement from Friday,.....

Re: Don't bring meat sandwiches into Spain

It was filmed and broadcast on Dutch TV and the UK media picked up on it. Of course in a way it is staged...all TV is staged as the people know the cameras are there. If you watch the whole report it is about all aspects of Brexit and the Dutch customs, just the UK media picked up on one aspect not ...

Yep so that makes perfect sense. UK payments are not longer SEPA payments so the banks are free to charge what they want.

Re: Don't bring meat sandwiches into Spain

It's not just ham sandwiches that are experiencing problems. Food shortages in Northern Ireland also. Even though Northern Ireland is still in a transition period to the full rules, even under the relaxed rules there are problems
