Re: Made in China

Nail bars and hand car washes in the Uk are a hive for enforced labour.

Re: Coronavirus

The police in the Uk don't even attend burglaries so are they really going to check up on people in quarantine. Arrive at Heathrow, get on the train into central London and then get the tube to your residence, OH and then quarantine yourself. Crazy situation.

Re: Antequera

We left the coast in July to visit Antequera and it was 28 degrees. We got to Antequera and it was 43 degrees. Unbearable heat in summer, a bit like every where else inland Spain.

I wish the Spanish government would watch this video along with everyone else before it is removed by the You Tube Thought Police because it dares to contradict the mainstream narrative:

Re: Coronavirus

Ok so my pet hate is the lazy slobs that have 1 elbow on the table eat with one hand. Excluding Asian, disabled or Muslim.

Re: Made in China

Not everything in the Chinese bazaars are made in China. I've bought a number of glass dishes and cookware that were made in France, and plastic storage containers were made in Spain. As already said, there are different levels of quality of Chinese goods, as they make products for big names like B...

Re: Made in China

I may buy a mop or similar from a Chinese bazaar but not tools and definitely nothing electrical. We bought a beach brolly a few years ago from the shop as you enter Torre del Mar. Absolute crap, lasted less than a summer season. Do you feel the same about your Apple products? Sid I know Apple prod...

Made in China

Ok, On the corona virus thread Lavanda is mentioning about not buying anything made in China. Who is going to stop? I defiantly will carry on because most things we use daily are made in China. I had to point out to a friend the other day that the top quality light bulbs from Phillips of Holland are...

Re: Leroy Merlin, Malaga

Unless it is account holder only which I very much doubt try and blag it by taking your IVA certificate with you in a plastic wallet. If you have that in your hand I bet you walk straight in.

Re: Easyjet

The rules seem to have got knocked on the head, they say they haven't got the staff to cope with demand, many of them are furloughed.. Odd though that they have enough staff to issue vouchers :shifty: :shifty: ! Apparently vouchers are issued automatically but cash refunds have to be processed manu...

Just had email this morning from Ryanair cancelling our June flights, voucher offered again. I am collecting vouchers like green shield stamps.
