Re: English Attitudes to Germany

Whether it is good business sense or not, it sounds like a threat to me to try to influence our exit from the EU. I would suggest that Brits north of the border (not just Anglos who scot47 always...

Re: best place to live in the UK

A small town or village in Hampshire are worth considering. Portsmouth and Southampton are nearby which are certainly convenient for the shipping industry.

Re: Why did I not love this country before???????

Do you believe Scotland would be able to survive on its own, and if you’ve lived in Bulgaria for many years, why do you hate being part of the UK? I’ve never hated Scotland, but then, I’ve never...

Re: Over 40's Moving Back and Catching Up

Perhaps a different agent will be more successful. My neighbour has been trying to sell his flat for 6 months, but he’s optmistically and greedily asking £30,000 more than he paid last year, and...

Re: Why did I not love this country before???????

A small seaside town would be better for your lungs. Marvellous to stand on a cliff top, and not only admire the expansive views, but breathe in the fresh air. Even the harbourside is worthwhile,...

Re: Why did I not love this country before???????

When we are young, there is always a big desire to see and experience more than the little world around us. It is our nature to spread our wings and fly to other pastures, and like migratory birds,...

Re: Back 5 years and 3 months today!

Wow, MissBetty herself, welcome back to the forum.

Re: Decision made.

Not just with buying and selling property, Britain is drowning in red tape.

I’m sure the overburdened NHS would also be better served with a massive administrative overhaul, but I feel that...

Re: Post EU Referendum

It is pertinent that only 1466 Sky customers were polled, and we must wonder how they were chosen.

Re: Ten days back...observations.

Not everything is cheap, yesterday I paid 85 pence for a currant bun.

When I was in primary school they were only one penny . . . and that was when there were 240 pennies in the pound!

Joining any kind of club or sporting activity is helpful in Oz. I had played sport in England, so of course looked to do the same within days of arriving in Adelaide. It was all very much easier to...

Re: Melbourne schools and places to live

Beaumaris also has a village feeling and is worth considering.

I enjoyed my time living there, but like Brighton, it can be pricey.

Re: The Irish Times on Brexit

The EU is democratic? I thought this was alien to them.

But then, it seems that certain losers in the UK have no concept of democracy either, it must be a 21st century malady.
