Re: Daily Express

Costs 70p weekdays. I have been buying it for a neighbour during these strange times. £1.10 Saturday ( she gets the Mail Sunday, £1.80 )

Of course, I get a proper newspaper, the Telegraph.

Re: Easyjet

Some people trying to get a refund will just end up giving in and opt for the voucher....knowing they are valid for 12 months will help sway them I still want a full refund, i am not taking any chances on Easyjet still being there when all of this is over so to me a voucher could turn out to be wor...

Re: 1966 WC Final

What was very noticeable was how much more enjoyable the game was without the shirt grabbing, pushing and shoving, rolling around with "injuries", and what a treat to see the respect the players had for their opponents and the referee. Parilla This arrived with the South American players, playing i...

Re: Bank Charges

Still no charge at Unicaja mid November. Hopefully this will continue... La Caixa have now started to moan about monies being paid into accounts over the counter, trying to steer people towards their "cash machines". Maybe in a few more years, they will be able to get rid of half the staff, and just...

Re: Certificado non residente

My bank, La Caixa have never discussed it with me, but I have seen a charge go through for my wife and I, think from memory every two years.

But then, La Caixa like a charge !

Bank Charges

For years, I have being using a Caxton card for holiday spending money, usually using my own Spanish bank, La Caixa to make withdrawls. Back in May, there was no charge at the cash point, however, this October there was a charge of 2 euro. I bit the bullet and went ahead with the withdrawl. A few da...

Re: Financial Advisors...Again.

Yes, avoid financial advisors like the plague.

However, I had an email this week from a "bishop" in Nigeria who had $4.3 million to give away.

It was only to nice, charitable, Christians, who would do good with the money.

Amazed he found me !!

Re: dinero

Looking at exchange rates, my friends "Caxton" are today only quoting 1.0686.

Can it go any lower, is par on the way, or will Boris pull us back from the brink ?

Can't be a lot of joy at the moment for people relying on UK pensions.

Re: Voting in the Spanish election in April

Reminds me of the graffiti I saw years ago, on a wall in Holloway Road at election time...

"Don't vote - VOMIT "...

I believe Jeremy Corbyn is the local MP there days.
