Re: Renewing a UK passport

10 weeks is what the passport office recently quoted when they warned people who were planning to go abroad in the summer, that they should apply now for renewals. I believe the backlogs are caused...

Both Aus and NZ did a smart thing by quickly closing their borders , but didnt think about getting their people vaccinated as fast as possible; illogical. Israel and Chile went out of their way to...

Re: The road to freedom

Chile has reached the 80% and only a 2% positivity rate on PCR tests. I think as far as the UK is concerned, there must be political reasons for Chile to be on the red list, or perhaps those in...

Re: Are you a British expat, living in one of these specific countries?

Re: Kia ora

I understand your thoughts, and my thinking is that as we get older, we have a desire to be closer to those that are left of our family. This is natural, but I think what you need to ponder over, is...

Re: Need your ears and language skills please

There is a history behind the pronunciation of c or z as th. I cant remember the specifics, but it was due to a king many years ago, who had a lisp. So as not to make him feel uncomfortable, people...

Re: Security grill for windows/doors

Over the years, I’ve learned that grills on windows really arent much of a protection. They are embedded in the cement around the frames, and it takes little effort to rip them off. The only way such...

Re: Gibraltar 2

Re: Gibraltar 2

Thanks. That doesnt sound too bad, as I have no problem with spending 10 days in Gib, and it’s a lot better than suffering the quarantine in the UK

Re: Is the quality of this car acceptable?

I also suggest you just get rid of it the best way you can and buy Toyota. We’ve had Toyotas for the padt 14 years, and never ever had any problems. We get them serviced every 10000km and that’s it....

Re: Vaccine - NZ strategy?

I read that NZ hopes to have all vaccinated by the end of the year, ie 5 million in 10 months; pretty lousy in my opinion. Chile, has vaccinatec just under 3 million in 3 weeks.
