Re: Easyjet

I think this could be looked at from a different perspective. Their cash flow has dried up. Hardly anyone is buying flights so no money coming in and at the same time they are being asked to give back millions of Pounds etc. As I see it if they did start to return money and then after giving back ma...

Re: Coronavirus

During my 22km drive yesterday and then 22km back I saw two trucks, one tractor and three cars. There's more chance of being hit by an asteroid than another vehicle. However, it may be different in Andalucia. Yep, that attitude is rife it seems in countries affected by this plague. F*ck everyone el...

Re: Coronavirus

Sound's like last year, same pattern, Feb 2019/20 both lovely followed by cold and miserable weather during April, last Easter turned out to be a dead loss. The weather is expected to be good this weekend both here in the North of Spain and in the UK. I was going over on Saturday. My wife tells me ...

Re: Easyjet

I actually decided to change my flights with BA and Easyjet and the whole process was quite easy, I decided not to go down the refund route because I did see you had to phone and I thought I'd risk it for early August. The change was very simple, I also got a refund from Watford football club within...

Re: Coronavirus

. I never quite understood why people will only give to charities if someone runs 26 miles, or has their head shaved, or jumps out of an aeroplane et al. If the marathon was to be cancelled why can't people donate the money anyway? It's because many people don't want to be told how to spend their m...

Re: Coronavirus

Micheal Gove says there is a shortage of the relevant chemical reagents to increase tests. The Chemical Industries Association say that's news to us. A few weeks ago Matt Hancock said that the government had been talking to the supermarkets. The supermarkets said they hadn't. Meanwhile the governmen...

Re: Coronavirus

We keep up with the Spanish news first and foremost as we live here. The UK is a side-show but for the family we have there. If everyone comes through in one piece most will be bankrupt as they are self-employed, work for small businesses or rely on savings and investments - as do most pensioners. ...

Re: Coronavirus

One of the problems I have now I'm stuck in the house is that I'm not talking nowhere near as much to the adult Spanish students who usually keep me up to date with Spanish news . Now I'm just reading the basic El Pais English stuff and mostly what's going on back in the UK.

Re: Coronavirus

But you have to be very careful with its content as well. A quick google regarding the anti-malaria drug throws up plenty of experts who also insist that we are not at the stage to be using them. I read a couple but I thought this one was rather more interesting because it develops yours while givin...

The thing is none of us would want to pay 30 euros per day for 4G internet use. Having said that, many of use regularly review the service we have.

Re: Coronavirus

From the start we have been told that Corona virus tends to be fatal with people who have underlying health problem so in effect Coronus virus doesn't actually kill you but complicates other health issues and that is the real cause of death. However in the UK yesterday there were 246 deaths. All but...

Re: Coronavirus

I agree with most of that Peter but I understand why it's only local shopping as many abuse the rules and use it as an excuse.
Better strict clear simple rules that everyone understands than ones with exceptions and nuance, which some don't understand well and others just exploit

Re: Coronavirus

We will have to wait and see how it pans out. The difference in the response from the USA to China might give us a clue.

On a lighter note. Taking the rubbish out is now seen as one of the highlights of the day and the whole household is fighting over who should do it. How things change.

Re: Coronavirus

Interesting no one commented when members of the Spanish government got the virus. Judging by this thread the majority of expats are not aware of Spanish affairs. Quite a few Spanish politician have got it but I can't think of any other country's leader who has. No one pointed out that Nadine Dorri...

I can't be sure if you are correct regarding being refused it or not as my experience has been positive and I've never had problems obtaining healthcare in Spain because I pay social security. However, I have read threads and posts on A. com regarding people's entitlements and until recently just be...

Article in the Olive Press today, Vox has asked for free healthcare to be removed for non residents during the CV outbreak. Typical short sightedness from that bunch trying to make political advantage .This virus is not racist and makes no difference between resident or non-residents/ The last thin...

Re: Coronavirus

Wife phoned me earlier. Spain is heading for the peak. Today cases and fatalities are way up.

Let's hope that all these measures will see the numbers start to go down within a week or so.
