  1. Is there evidence of this? or is it just fake news......
  2. Much like the IOM - all well but six or so returning foreign students were positive. All in isolation at school accomodation.
  3. Apparently (as the photos on Ebay showed) it was in excellent condition and not many hours use.....
  4. Returning residents ? or maybe returning students.........
  5. It was for sale on Ebay - asking price £5,500.
  6. Similarly our designation for motor vehicles on the Isle of Man (a crown dependency and never in EU) is GBM - and sticker is the three legs of Man. Over many years I have driven in Europe regularly and only once stopped by Police in Spain to query the designation. Incidentally tomorrow the IOM will be in full lockdown for two to three weeks as some further COVID19 positive cases have turned up.
  7. I appreciate there are many different views both positive and negative and this is why I think the next few years after Covid19 will be very interesting.
  8. Yes I have checked various statistics hence my question. 2019 result shows Netherland population only 2% happy and 48% unhappy or very unhappy. Of course the next few years will be interesting.

  9. I do wonder how the EU will control the borders (at some future stage) of any one or two present EU mainland countries who may also wish to follow a similar exit to that of the UK?
  10. Before the introduction of Pet Passports we followed the rules back in the day - i,e a health Certificate from a Vet and proof of Rabies vaccination. When we were travelling back to the UK through Germany we visited a Vet who completed a German (EU) Passport for our dog. Eventually this Passport ran out of pages for the Frontline and worming tablet stamps so we then had a Spanish (EU) Passport completed by the Spanish Vet. There was no problem obtaining an EU Passport for our pet.
  11. Similar procedure over here on Isle of Man. We have only one active case self isolating.
  12. Celtic mythology - and not a really gender neutral name for her
  13. I may have missed something here regarding travel to Spain. Normally we would do Portsmouth/Santander or Bilbao however on many occasions we have done Portsmouth to Northern France then a nice drive down to Southern Spain over two or three days. I wonder if any checks will be done at the France/Spain border ?
  14. I am sure the majority of passengers look for a speedy crossing and not a mini cruise hence the popular Mannanan's two and a half hour crossing
