  2. The snow I think it will be the least of our problems they keep on saying Vesuvio is ready for a big bang
  3. Don't look now - it's the end of the world! http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/752504/nostradamus-italian-prophecy-end-of-world-snow As soon as it warms up I'm out on the bike to find this "resort town of Salento"; I think it's very careless of our Italian hosts to lose it! But, maybe that's because there's been vastly more tectonic plate shift than we feared (see map)? Happens when you live in a highly volcanic area - apparently.
  4. they were right the cold weather it is here
  5. Good job it was supposed to be the Euro to collapse, Sterling is doing a better job of it
  6. are we talking about this "the week" magazine " The Week magazine takes only the best articles from the global online and print media and expertly edits them together, giving you a balanced and concise view of the news from the past seven days. In just one hour," http://subscription.theweek.co.uk/about-the-week/ or is there another one with the same name?
  7. banks shares have been going up and down like a yoyo all week with shares being temporarily suspended because of shares (of various banks) going up or down too much MPS shares today were up.so go figure I love all this doom predicted by the UK press they have been predicting the demise of the Euro etc for donkeys maybe it makes them feel better mind you Lloyd just scraped through and RBS didn't come out smelling of roses either
  8. Italy's UniCredit shares SUSPENDED as banking crisis grows
  9. That's the Remanian-supporting Londonistan Chronicle! Try: House prices defy gloomy post-Brexit forecasts Mind you I think the rest of the UK is willing a collapse in London prices too. But this won't be due to Brexit, it will simply be a return to some marginal sort of sanity.
  10. There have been talks for a while now that a revaluation of properties was going to take place it looks like it is happening indeed I went to the comune last week, finally after 4 years of asking them to recalculate my TARI tax (as they were charging me for a building I don't have) it seems we are getting somewhere with that, however I had a bit of a surprise when they told me last year I underpaid TASI (no longer in place from this year) by 76€. I said it can't be the accountant work it out. So went to the accountant to ask what happened they printed a visura catastale and it now shows my house is gone from A3 to A7. So off I went to see the geometra to see what was going on. he printed out a visura catastale storica and indeed in Nov last year (17/11/15) the catasto revalued my house from A3 to A7 without issueing any notification to the interested party the renable value has gone up from 503€ to 630€ So anyone doing their own IMU calculation make sure your property has not been revalued
  11. as I thought the wonder girl so far has only managed 1 council meeting that she had to have and surprise surprise she has to clear things with the "diretterio" before she does anything. Silly puppet or should it be muppet
  12. that's typical politicians talk things they say and don't mean Mind you if things keep going as it says in this article in 2 years time I might be able to buy back my house in London http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/revealed-how-thousands-of-house-deals-collapsed-in-london-due-to-brexit-a3305526.html
