  1. and hopefully, with a bit of luck, it might be a bit easier to book the dog friendly cabins
  2. I buy a lot of things from Amazon and I have found the advance guidance dates they show are normally wrong - My hair clippers arrived last week but had a delivery date of mid July
  3. On the "shortages" issue I see that Yeast can be purchased from Amazon although rather expensive
  4. Think the 3 I have in the glove box expired a long time ago - but I have a supply of toilet rolls in my defence.....
  5. Also I read that flour has become difficult to find in the supermarkets as only 4% is supplied to them and the rest goes to the bread makers. We only have one Tesco and a few Shoprites but the lockdown has encouraged people to do home baking - Maybe have to approach the flour mills for a large supply !
  6. That's good news - Isle of Man similar with no new cases recently and similarly opening up hairdressers and others but no intentions of opening up borders for the foreseeable future.
  7. Nice idea but no doubt at your own expense unfortunately ?
  8. We found the Ibis Bilbao Central adequate for all attractions - the red bus tour is really good.
  9. Lockdown here seems to have been fairly successful with very few new covid19 cases - shops opening on Monday with social distancing in force. No new passenger arrivals by air or sea and if one leaves the Island you cannot return. Seems a logical step.
  10. Yep - I agree with that - maybe it is but as I have said before - time will tell 😎
  11. I see the problem here on reporting is simply that it is assumed (by many) you believe all the different worlds/countries reports and statistics. It is Political - we know that - I don't believe half of what I read.... but hey - it will all come out in the wash ......
  12. Unless your cleaner is a family member 😎
  13. Yes that's great news Nick however no quarantine of 14 days for you guys in C.I travelling into UK - unlike the Brits travelling from Gib to UK .......
  14. Gibraltar allows key workers to enter from Spain with a letter of authority. These are mainly NHS and key workers living in Spain. The problem that Gibraltarians have is that a visit to UK to see family or friends is not a viable proposition as a future two week holiday to the UK would be spent in quarantine which will not apply to the French or Irish 😏 https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/05/10/british-ex-pats-on-spains-costa-del-sol-and-gibraltar-angry-over-uks-decision-to-force-14-day-quarantine-on-arrivals-as-ba-threatens-to-cancel-flights/
  15. At present IOM is in lockdown only allowing key workers and returning residents into the Island. This is similar to Gibraltar at this point in time however I understand that the UK/Ireland/French quarantine agreement is really to apply to tourism ? I can travel to UK without spending 14 days in quarantine - but Gibraltarians cannot
  16. Agreed they should be treated the same but unfortunately have to spend 14 days in quarantine.
  17. Is it strange to think that this agreement between UK and France apparently doesn't apply to (British) Gibraltar where no deaths have yet occurred associated with Covid19 ?
  18. At least for the rest of the year
  19. A lovely pair - and both registered in the Cayman Islands !!👌
  20. I personally don't think that such a threat will achieve a satisfactory result. There is a fine line here and to overstep without any legal basis may result in companies relocating.
  21. but the Conservatives won again?
  22. Fortunately it is not mine or your recommendations or advice that will have any influence of the present Governments strategies or indeed Tax Laws but like my mother used to say "time will tell"
  23. Well I have mentioned this before - the UK is actually a Tax Haven compared to many other countries and it can be a viable proposition to incorporate a Company in the UK but trade elsewhere.
  24. That will be unfortunate for the French employees of those companies if as a consequence they become unemployed
