Re: Dog walking during the lockdown

The Guardia are probably related to the shop owner. Great for business!

Re: Coronavirus

I appreciate that RT is not part of, and is even demonised by, the main stream media but that is exactly why it, along with Sputnik, is my main source of information. This is another thought provoking article and leads to one asking the question 'Why?' https://www.rt.com/op-ed/484102-raoult-chloroqu...

Re: Coronavirus

Did anyone else watch Telediario at lunchtime today? I am sure they said that the reported deaths in Spain are all deaths that are occurring on a daily basis not just deaths directly attributable to Covid 19. If anyone who saw the programme can confirm or contradict this it would be greatly apprecia...

Re: Guardia and the CV rules.

The Guardia Civil are past masters at making a desultory salute look like an insult. The correct term of address is 'agente' but if I find myself in such a situation I usually address them as señor which, in their little world, means Sir rather than Mister. It is how they address their senior office...

The Vox proposal refers to illegal immigrants not 'non-residents'. I am not sure if this is an incompetent mistranslation or deliberate fake news sensationalism from a left wing gutter press rag: https://elpais.com/espana/2020-03-24/vox-pide-quitar-la-sanidad-gratuita-a-los-inmigrantes-irregulares-d...

Re: UK State Pension

Unless you need it on a month to month basis a better option is to have it paid in sterling into a UK bank account then transfer funds when the rate is favourable.

Be careful of interactive Covid-19 maps especially those distributed on Fakebook, [email protected] and Instacrap:

Please do not post links to interactive maps unless you are confident of their provenance.

Re: Customer service

Try your insurance company. The control panel of my generator was damaged during a thunderstorm a couple of years ago. Endesa denied responsibility but the insurance company paid out and asked us if we would instigate a court case against them using the insurance company's own lawyers and at no expe...
