Re: Coronavirus

It reminded me of an TV advert from years ago when all kinds of mayhem was going on in the background and something soft and gentle was being promoted in the foreground. The only problem is that I cannot remember what was being advertised. If I knew who that busker was I would send him a donation. I...

Re: Coronavirus

They are desperate to justify their actions. I would like to know what Sánchez, Johnson, Merkel and all other complicit and corrupt world leaders have been promised in return for perpetuating this scam and deliberately wrecking the economies of their respective countries.

Re: Coronavirus

The higher number of deaths are probably from seasonal flu falsely attributed to covid. The have to keep up the pretence somehow.

Re: Confusion about NIE/Residency

Good! No-one should be afraid of taking them on. We are currently fighting them on someone's behalf because they claim an appeal we made to have some incorrectly deducted tax refunded was submitted outside the time limit when they have already made it quite clear that deadlines would be relaxed due ...

Re: Non Resident bank accounts

I am assuming you will have to do this from the UK given current travel restrictions. If you are using a gestor or suchlike to help you with the purchase of the property the cost of opening the bank account would probably be included in the overall fee but a much greater consideration will be the co...

Re: Frozen bank accounts

Even if they don't it is best to clear out a UK account otherwise the deceased's portion may be taxed as part of his estate. My wife and I have most of our assets in joint accounts but we each have an individual account for this very purpose when it becomes necessary. As far as a joint Spanish bank ...

Re: Getting to airport

I am not sure how representative his thoughts are of the police and guardia civil in general but I have a friend who says that he and his colleagues are sick and fed up with the orders that keep on coming from both the central and regional governments. I am increasingly unable to get 23F out of my m...

Re: Non Resident bank accounts

It is unlikely that you will be able to open an account with any bank remotely. It can be done on your behalf with a power of attorney but you will need to produce UK tax returns or a P60 showing your National Insurance number.

Re: Curfew?

Masks are worn by medical staff under strict rules and guidlines governing their use. I am merely repeating what I have read time and time again. This is only one of dozens of reports on the subject. This one just happened to be at the top of the search list: https://www.globalresearch.ca/face-masks...

Re: Curfew?

There may be no immediate side-effects from wearing a mask but it is the long term damage to the heart, lungs and other bodily organs as well as, probably most importantly, the immune system that is most worrying. I have to wear a mask for barely six hours in a whole month and that is six hours too ...

Re: Certificate of Permanent Residence/T.I.E

This is absolutely unbelievable. They are so particular about the applications being made in such a precise manor and rejecting them if 'an i isn't dotted or a t not crossed' then say that a glaring error on their part doesn't matter. We haven't pick ours up yet but if they are wrongly worded then, ...

Re: Advice needed for log burner install

Please disregard my post. It was an attempt at lavatory humour. I know absolutely nothing about installing log burners. The covid scam seems to have destroyed our sense of humour, along with every other aspect of our lives.

Re: Coronavirus

Yes, the whole thing makes a complete nonsense of having to wear a mask at all. In fact, Tony Fauci of the CDC initially said that masks should not be worn by the public:
