Re: NL - cash or card question

Re: Dougal03's views on UK after returning

Re: 25 Year old moving to Spain advice

How many of those qualified for an Article 50 (pre-Brexit) visa?

It's relevant. How many do you *personally* know who did this since Jan 2021?

Re: COVID measures affecting takeaways

You don't state whether you're in NL, BE or LX: the rules are different for each I'm sure.

In NL, none essential shops must close at 5pm (supermarkets are open as per their normal hours). I don't...
