Re: Coronavirus

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: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DKh6kJ-RSMI Scary how much power the social media giants have to censor differing ...

Re: Made in China

Don’t know how Companies, get around the regulations but many don’t mention the China connection. Burberry clothes and bags just have a label saying Burberry London.

Yesterday a Chinese Company bought a 13% share in Norwegian Air.

Re: Coronavirus

With Greece announcing it is open for foreign tourists don't think it will be long before Spain and others do the same. Probably hotels will be opening just in time for the July rush. I think the lock downs will end by default with no one wanting to be responsible for ending it completely.

Re: Made in China

I very much doubt if any of you don't have an electrical/ electronic item that wasn't made in China in your home. A quick look at some of my items My Casio watch bought in the UK, made in China. My wife's Kindle, bought in Spain, made in China. Our Beko washer/ spin dryer bought in Spain, made in C...

Re: Made in China

Strange how there are so many of the Chinese tat shops in Spain, wonder if it is because it gets them a visa? So many restaurants too, A block of 6 shops close to us in Elviria had two Chinese restaurants. One was nearly always empty yet seemed to support two young families with young children. I am...

Re: Coronavirus

I can't see the point because the would just take us back 70 or more years. but I would argue against the survival of the fittest. But if it were to happen, my bet would be that the ones who advocate it the loudest , would be first in line to bleat how unfair the world is when it the time came for ...

There were more Police than protesters! Corbyn's brother appeared to be one of the main leaders, he was arrested.

Protests in Madrid too and some riots in Germany,

Re: Coronavirus

Some good sensible posts on here today. Probably a first but I agree with them all. Both Mike and Beachcomber make some good points from differing views. Pamela sums it up well as whatever happens the world cannot live in lockdown like now. We are bombarded with endless statistics, many contradictor...

On Apple desktop it is a real mess, jumbled and unreadable both in google and Safari. Perfect on Apple iPad which I use most. Haven’t checked my phone.

Also half a page gap between some posts. :?

Re: Coronavirus

Very true. Ppl got fed up of been locked up so kinda made a run for it when they could. It will be intresting to see the final numbers between the uk and spain. Uk with a larger pop and less of a shut down should end with higher numbers than spain. Will the strict lockdown have been worth it interm...
