Yeah I know, I'm looking at Sevilla which is in Andalucia which is at the lowest level at the moment. There aren't many options sadly other than make a big jump to somewhere like Costa Rica like Owen's decided to do.

Do you have a job, or independent income? Unemployment in Spain has gone up 650,000, now at 3.9 million. Don't go there thinking you'll pick up a job like you will in the UK. The job market is nothing like the UK, sadly.

Some images of today's demonstration in London (not taken by me personally).

Yes I work online thankfully and should be sorted up until the summer, so all I need is a decent internet connection. Financially my plan is to save up invest as well as I can have the minimum in Fiat money and wait for the storm clouds to gather.

 

I partly feel like I should be staying here and standing my ground, but there seems to be very little will to resist in this country so I'm not even sure what I could get involved in other than postering/leafleting and talking to people I know. Feel like for my mental health I need a change of scenery but then there's the danger of being in a foreign country when potentially the shit hits the fan.

Good stuff. Another tip, if you rent a flat, be careful, many flats are poorly built and the noise from neighbours can be extreme, don't expect much help from anyone to stop it. If you can afford it rent a flat built after 2009 or a detached house.

I have a terraced house and I am selling up because of the noise from the neighbours children is too extreme. Constant banging and screaming. This lockdown is just driving me crazy. Feel like going outside and screaming at the top of my lungs.

Deliberately so. They have the power to mock. They get off on it. I think they know that they can speak any lie they like, display any hypocrisy they choose and nobody can do a thing about it.

 

They remind me of serial killers that leave their victims in humiliating poses and taunt the police with notes and phone calls. Only, these serial killers running the scam know that the police, military, courts, most of the public, are cheering them on.

Thanks a lot, and yes I unfortunately learned this the hard way! Lived in Huelva for a year, we ended up in a flat where the pipes burst and we had no running water for a month. We somehow got blamed for it and ended up losing the deposit!

We moved due a absolute ****er and his boom boom TV sound system. Makes me sick to think of it. Got out just before the lockdowns started. Hate to think how many more are suffering.

Latest numbers from the guardian,

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Germany increased by 10,237 to 2,310,233, data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases showed on Thursday. The reported death toll rose by 666 to 63,635, the tally showed.

I see the vermin have slipped a 33 AND a 666 into that one!

These zombie police and council workers need to catch a wake up. 

People need to start taking people's names down including the mutton shunters. Businesses small or large that try to impose any sort of tyranny on yourself. 

 

"You are not essential". Who the f does this trollop think she's talking to in that manner. Absolute filth of the earth these people.

Indeed. Read the list of the poor woman's other conditions and it's not surprising to see this. Diabetics - if their condition is poorly controlled - are prone to losing toes because of neuropathy.

Does anyone believe this ?

 

Motorists flock to drive-through centres to get the Covid-19 vaccine as Boris Johnson urges TWO MILLION vulnerable Britons who are yet to receive jab to step up for the shot

 

DM head lines today

Absurd nonsense......what about the 15 minutes wait after the jab?

This just shows how desperate they are.....I reckon the amount of people they say  have had the vaccine  is about a quarter of what they claim.

I wouldn't be surprised if people they've merely contacted to have the jab are already included in the totals.

I am certain in Dubai you have to wear masks outside. And even in a car when there are passengers.

They probably do need to wear masks, but getting there was no problem.

It's not a place I'd personally like to move to...but I guess each to their own.

I hope so. I know a lot of the time the situation seems hopeless but actually all we need to do is not have the jab. If they get really low numbers they are going to get very desperate and way overplay their hand.
