Re: Merry Christmas

Nothing wrong with the vast majority of scots (prove me right in the referendum). Although some suffer from the "It's everyone elses fault" syndrome. We blame immigrants for every problem in the...

I work for a webhosting company (remotely)

Re: People Going Back To UK

I live near Leeds and could afford a house or apartment if I saved a reasonable deposit for a year. However, I'm unwilling to pay the current prices. A correction is inevitable and it's best to wait...

Re: People Going Back To UK

It's because they convince themselves it's better for the children.

If you struggle to make a living in the UK and have no special skill, you will be even worse off in Spain.

Re: People Going Back To UK

Dunno, I never really had an issue with the UK, For me it was just very expensive for housing. I received an offer which basically doubles my current wage, I think I'll take it. Technically, my...

Re: EasyJet Advanced passenger info - be careful

I had it with RyanAir. They never asked when I booked in November and never sent a reminder. I just happened to be looking on the website when I saw the info.

Re: Spanish Electricity Bill - Iberdrola

I have electric heaters and didn't have a problem. They were new though. Like Lee said though, electric is an inefficient way of heating. Sounds like the wood burner is your best bet!

Re: Entry to the UK

As per the initial post. The German Police had issue with him going via the UK, not to Spain. He can travel around the listed countries as much as he wants.

Yes, he can apply for a single trip...

Re: Entry to the UK

No. His VISA allows him to travel to and via the countries I mentioned ;) It's freely available on the link provided.

The UK is just not one of those countries.

Re: Malaga Economy Doom Predicted.

Sure, but why not release a paper or report. If he's not in it for personal gain, why release a book?

I'm not saying he is wrong or right but you have to admit, he has a vested interest.

Re: Name and Shame

I'm not discussing policy. I already said I can agree with it and would probably do the same myself. The legal argument just makes no sense (despite what your solicitor said). I also said if someone...

Re: Entry to the UK

No he doesn't, hehe. By the sounds of it and the problem with the UK, he has the SCHENGEN VISA. This would fully explain why he isn't allowed to enter the UK.

If he thinks it's because he is...

Re: Housing too expensive in UK?

Agreed. There would be a big crash if it wasn't for one tiny detail.....supply and demand. There aren't enough houses being built and that's why prices have shot up in recent years.

No, he doesn't have a EU VISA. There is no such thing.

He has a Schengen Visa which covers the following countries.

The 15 Schengen countries are: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France,...

Re: Entry to the UK

Erm, Spanish people don't need VISAs to enter England or any other EU country. It's one of the perks of being European and being a member of the EU.

Just like I can jump on a plane tomorrow and go...

Re: Merry Christmas

Bah humbug! More expense. You know, I liked Christmas much more when I didn't have to buy people presents. It's better to receive than to give.

Now it's all about Christmas dinner!

Not as such. I'm sure you have heard of the Black Widow. They are out and about in Valencia and AndalucĂ­a. I don't think they are an every day occurrence though.
