Re: Dream Lives for sale

The Problem with these kind of programmes is that they are not concerned with veracity, their working brief is to lure as many viewers as possible using whatever methods, regardless of wether the so called facts are right or wrong. There will always be low IQ viewers who are glued to this stuff (and...

Re: Can you bring fuel into Spain from Gibraltar?

Alan, sorry I will be shouted down for this but if you seriously need to save 15 cents per litre on fuel then it's time to get a a bike!! Even if you use 100 ltrs per week, which would suggest mileage of 1000 km you will still be saving only 15 euros, sorry I don't get it, no doubt the "little ...

Re: British Registered Car in Spain

In Sweden and Finland they don't mess about, if you are caught on the road without m o t OR tax OR insurance they take away your number plates and immediately impound the car. Following on from that for every day you car is impounded you have to pay rent to the pound plus a release fee when you go t...

Re: 100% mortgage

I agree with Scotty, El Cid and Annphoto, to take out a 100% mortgage under any circumstances is suicidal, the current (and most practical) trend is renting, wait till he has 50 grand in the bank then he can think about buying a 100 grand property. Sorry if this sounds like raining on your (or his) ...
