  1. Good on any company or individual that pays the least tax that is legally allowed.   The economy is being suffocated by government interference (taxation). I have no doubt that the company and its shareholders will put the money to more productive uses than any government department ever will.   The net result is the creation of non jobs that are sold as vital to the economy, and illogical subsidies.   
  2. While I detest all religions and associated practices I do take issue with delusional inferior civilisations comments. I am astounded to learn that I have been classified by fellow forum members as belonging to a wider delusional group, apparently on the basis that I disbelieve that bovines are not inconvenienced by being strung up by their legs and having their throats ritually cut. Hi pachapapa No statement as to your character was made or inferred – I stated the comment of believing that any given civilisation is superior to any other is delusional.  
  3. [quote user="Quillan"]Thats just the UK Braco, much of the same can be applied to most of the 'superior' western culture.[/quote]   Totally agree. Though not wishing to write an essay I just listed a few points.   I strongly believe that every country, city, town and village has the same spread of positive and negative attributes amongst it people.  
  4. [quote user="pachapapa"]Completely agree with Fillon; superior civilisations have moved forward to humane methods of slaughter; it is quite obvious that the barbaric methods associated with the words kosher & halal should be banned. A morally disgusting accoutrement of inferior civilisations.[/quote] While I detest all religions and associated practices I do take issue with delusional inferior civilisations comments.   Lets list just a few things that prove our superiority.   The Daly Star and Jordan’s latest exploits.   Moronic soap operas that have lasted decades and will probably last for centuries.   Drug dependency level.   Sink estates full of welfare dependents.   And finally a political class that can whip up the ignorant with just a wave of a flag.  
  5. I love using Ryan air especially now that you can book the emergency exit seats.   As we have a car in France we have a choice of driving if prices are high.   I personally feel that the 10 kg hand luggage limit is far too high and often abused. I have seen passengers emptying their bag and dressing up as Michelin man to avoid paying, as well as frail passengers trying to lift and remove hand luggage over the heads of others.   Far better comfort and safety wise to reduce to a single item, three or four kg maximum.
  6. My last five cars have been diesel. I prefer the torque, and the high mpg.
  7. To paraphrase the song ‘where ever I light my barbeque (that’s my home)
  8. Help please. Is there any penalty for not using the return leg of a booking. We just want the option of extending a stay by purchasing an additional return ticket.
  9. Things are certainly tough in the UK and not likely to get better any time soon.
  10. Love Bouzigues We pick up oysters and mussels from the seller as you leave the town. Fresh from the aerated tanks. Simply the best mussels we have ever tasted, and only 2.5 euro’s a kilo.
  11. Just log onto the Renault UK web site, and you will find the tab for ordering a certificate on line. Owner Services tab then Customer Relations tab http://www.renault.co.uk/ownerservices/coc.aspx

  13. Certificate of conformity – Renault I applied on line from Renault UK and received a certificate (in English) by recorded delivery without any charge. Nice to receive that level of service.
  14. Thank you both for your replies. Am I right in thinking that the solar cover is just left on the reel. We have a 10x5m lined pool. We have built a small pool house and the pump/sand filter is housed in that.
  15. Hi As we are new to maintaining a pool we would appreciate some guidance to a few questions we have: Do you need to keep the pump running through the winter months. We are about to put the winter cover on and are wondering if it is best to be laid over the summer cover or not. And what is the process of adding chemicals over winter. Thank you
  16. Hi Having checked out LHD car prices and failed to win the Euro millions we have taken the plunge and purchased a four year old UK registered Renault Laguna diesel car. For the foreseeable future we are planning to base it in our house in Pezenas and use it for our, and family visits. I have a few questions and will be very grateful for your experience’s. How long will it roughly take to complete the re-registration? I ask this as I suspect that it will probably require us to use it for a few months as a UK taxed and insured vehicle. I have found German sourced LHD headlamps on Ebay. Are they available in France as grey market (non main dealer supplied). Can anyone please point me in the direction of an English speaking insurance broker/website as my French only extends to ordering food and drink. And finally as I have read on this site a certificate of conformity is required, can this be obtained in the UK. Thank you.
  17. Response to Braco. Eh? I think you have been to different 3rd world countries from me, the ones I've been to have pot holes on main roads that are far far far worse than any I've seen in UK and France on minor roads. Fine if that is all you aspire to - now maybe a good time to let the natural born scum bag a turn at running the county
  18. Because the UK chucks money down the drain on stooopid IT projects, QUANGOS and millions of people who take money from the public purse for doing *** all And not because it insists on building aircraft carriers........ while I have to buy my BBQ from China, my TV from Japan, my cars from Germany......................
