Hi everyone.

New to posting.. and wanted to thank Alex particularly.. and Mathew and Dario and Jenni and all ... for entertainment during these awesome times. The frequent heated discussions prompted me to send the following Thought for the Day .. John Bell from Iona Community has kindly given me permission to post it to you. Hope you have the patience to read it all !

"I have always been attracted to prophetic figures.. whether they be ancient like Isaiah or contemporary like Martin Luther King or Nelson Mandela.

If you look at the content of what they had to say, you can discern three strands :   they analyse the present predicament.. they offer empathy and solace to the despairing.. they re-imagine the future.

At the moment we have quite a lot of analysis. Indeed we may be suffering from analysis paralysis. And there has been good support and encouragement for many from people close to us and from programmes on the media.

But what about re-imagining the future ? There's a growing clamour to be told when the lockdown is going to be eased. But what will the post-lockdown future hold ? Or what should it hold ? No politician ever imagined they would have to deal with a post-pandemic world. Much in their past manifestos is now redundant.. so what next ?

Some people just want to get back to normal. I desperately hope that we don't. That would mean essential workers, particularly in private care homes, returning to underpaid oblivion. It would mean business, transport and industry re-contributing to high levels of pollution. It would mean a return to underfunded health and social services, with experts only listened to in times of crisis, rather than to prevent crises. It would mean a devaluing of the importance of the arts and of open spaces as essential for public well-being.

There's a moment in the history of the Jewish exodus when, wearied by travelling and uncertain of what was to come, the recently liberated slaves complain to God that they want to go back to Egypt. It was a case of mental myopia ; they forgot that the past was not at all pleasant. So God declined their request and instead let them wander about aimlessly for forty years until they were open to embrace a very different future.

Maybe some of the things we are experiencing at the moment hold clues to the new normal we might aspire to .. time to talk at length rather than in soundbites, the enjoyment of showing consideration for others, neighbourhoods taking initiatives, ecology as a partner rather than the servant of economics, and an awareness of how, unless we help the poor of the world to get through this time, the virus might return to us with a vengeance. Such things are not for political manifestos to determine ... but for us ALL to discuss and discover."

Perhaps this should have been posted under Boris or Brexit discussion topics ? Please take care and stay safe.. and be grateful you are still alive. From Tony in Snowdonia.

Healthcare now I'm resident - 2 replies

Annaleise36 Posted by Annaleise36 in Healthcare and medical advice in Mojacar on Sun Jan 24, 2021 10:48am

I obtained my residencia in November. I went the route of money in the bank and paid up front for private healthcare for a year. So what happens now I'm resident, am I automatically able to register for social healthcare, do I need to wait for my 12 months private cover to expire or do I need to continue with private healthcare until myself and my fiancee are married and I can be named on our business (he is currently named and Autonomo). My healthcare would be up in July.

Residency for an EU resident - 27 replies

Orson Wellies Posted by Orson Wellies in Moving to Vera: tips and advice on Sat Jan 23, 2021 12:36pm


A bit different my scenario.

I'm British and have lived in Greece since March 2002.  Have had residents permit since then.  Decided in summer 2020 with my partner of 31 years that we would like to move to Spain.

Started the process of selling our house in August 2020.  Partner moved to Spain in September 2020 and started residency.  I was due to follow in October after house sale.  October, Greece introduced COVID restrictions and the government buildings were closed to the public and went appointment only.  This delayed the buyer paying the tax on property until late December 2020.  Sale can't be completed without tax payment.

Anyway, I'm now only able to travel to Spain and join my partner. I thought everything would be OK as I had read a document online from the Spanish Embassy Here that stated in the "Brexit Update" paragraph, and I quote "However, UK nationals and their family members who established the residence in other EU Member State before the end of the transition period in accordance with EU free movement law, will maintain their free movements rights after 31st December 2020"

I contacted the Spanish Embassy in London and made them aware of my situation and asked for travel advice, but, they say as a British Citizen I can only enter Spain for a period of 90 days.  If I wish to stay longer or reside there I will have to apply for a visa.

So, it appears they are not honouring the fact I have been resident in an EU country for almost 19 years prior to the Brexit transition period.

I would take any of these "Official" documents with a pinch of salt at the moment as no one seems to know what they are doing.
