Re: Coronavirus

Spanish friend has just sent me some amazing footage of the military in the centre of Competa in armoured vehicles making their presence felt. Surreal to see. They have been doing a recce in Marbella too. I wonder if they are anticipating social unrest like what is starting in Italy as people get p...

Re: Coronavirus

Every industry wants a bailout now. Charities the latest. Feel sorry for the small genuine ones I sent the money I'm saving by not going out to two of the local animal charities. They must be struggling without their usual fundraising activities and with their shops being shut. There have been arti...

Re: Coronavirus

:Funny there are more support groups than needed in this area. All back to normal except no delivery slots but plenty of volunteers if housebound. I find my money is mounting up as although a bit more expenditure on food no spending on entertainment, restaurant meals etc. Have to call all my obscure...

Re: Coronavirus

Agree Miro. I think this year will be a write off even if the virus dies down. We had already gone off cruises, not what they used to be, but if I hadn't they way infection spreads and how easily ships are stranded would put me off. Every industry wants a bailout now. Charities the latest. Feel sorr...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes it is hard to imagine there are people stuck in grotty apartments with a few kids, thousands lost their jobs...or lives. Wouldn't mind a wander down marbella paseo right now.

Re: Coronavirus

Didn’t know that the FCO has a large centralised call centre in Malaga :? Maybe to take advantage of cheap labour. They would have to be good English speakers I suppose.

Re: Coronavirus

Appears back to normal here. Had an email today from Tesco, says they have employed an extra 35,000 packers and drivers. Wonder how they managed that. Maybe all those baristas and burger flippers?

Re: Easyjet

I had an email from BA asking if I want a voucher as we were due to fly to Nice at Easter. Haven’t done anything yet but is an easy 2 min online process, just asks for name, flight no and date of travel.

Have read that Ryanair have increased prices for those wanting to re book.

Re: Coronavirus

These tragic reports happen a lot when there is no lock down. Unfortunately there has been quite a few similar recently before anyone had heard of the word Coronavirus. Too early to link it, unless you are a tabloid journalist.

Re: Coronavirus

All the whinging re. Madrilenos using their second homes and in UK too but have noticed the woke celebrities are quietly travelling. Elton John has suddenly popped up in LA along with Harry and Markle. Richard and Judy claim to be stuck in Florida and the Queen of green Emma Thompson Quietly tucked ...

Re: Coronavirus

Just said 150,000 British stranded have been brought back from Spain and more to come. Bet it is feeling quiet for those of you living in tourist areas. Where did you see or hear that? That is a lot and tbh not really noticed that kind of mass exodus from Spain in this area on the CDS Read on Tuppe...

Mark Problem is that like the UK most Spanish newspapers have now got a paywall. I can read them free in UK through OHs business club but not the Spanish.

Re: Coronavirus

Closer to home in Spain the crisis in olive farming hasn't been fixed. Why pay a decent rate for food when you can buy abroad for less? I read recently Boris declared farming in the UK was a dead duck (my words not his) and that it was more cost effective to buy from a country with cheaper overhead...

Re: Coronavirus

It is Spanish news, breaking in El Mundo. I thought that's what the thread was about not trivia. Or do you only want to talk about Boris? Can you elighten me as to what is acceptable. May happen in UK and I am sure it will be plastered all over this forum. I am beginning to think you are stalking me...
