Good article here about GERB's shambolic position on the Euro reinforcement pact. http://www.euinside.eu/en/comments/bulgaria-does-not-give-money-to-the-imf-saying-it-failed-to-tackle-the-crisis I don't think Bulgaria will be welcomed into the Eurozone any time soon. :wink: Italian newspapers appare...

I am not yet in receipt of my State Pension, but that will also be taxed at source in the UK. Are you sure about that? The Double Taxation Agreements (DTA) normally state that the country of residence has the sole right to tax state retirement pensions. Pensions arising from Government service on t...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-16282206 Another near 500bn Euro's pumped into the (failing) system. I cant believe it. The ECB has a nominal capital of 5 billion Euro. Its balance sheet must have expanded vastly. However it says that it can continue indefinitely with a negative value and it has...

The text is agreed but it's not likely to be signed until the kleptocrat/national heroine (depending on your POV) is let out of gaol.

I haven't found the text but it will probably make migration for self employment easier both ways if it follows the normal Europe Agreement model.

Those swine in the European self-styled "Parliament" could save Euro 203m a year simply by keeping their well padded posteriors on their chairs in Brussels all the time, rather than shuttling to Strasbourg and back month in, month out. But they won't. It will have to be "special measures" for them, ...

Definitely Martinique. Cool 8) Yes, you're right. Those foggy islands of St Pierre and Miquelon seem to have ben reclassified or opted out of freedom of movement now, but Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Réunion, Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin seem to be OK for EU Citizens to turn up and s...

IF banks and countries go bankrupt one of the most affected will be the financial center in London and this could be a very painful moment for the UK. Very! I don't know. London would probably benefit from all the restructuring and law cases. Plenty of work :D And nobody will trust a mainland Europ...

Possibly, it depends whether there are any other conventions that guarantee equal treatment. Council of Europe, International Labour Organisation for example. A lot also depends on the attitude of the other state involved. UK pensioners in the US get indexed pensions presumably on the basis of a bil...

You can apparently check your, or any other vehicle's, third party liability insurance here http://eisoukr.guaranteefund.org/ I would have thought that sooner or later seated passenger insurance (which seems to be accident rather than liability insurance) would die out as passengers became included ...
