Recommendations & Requests


Clarification: Thank you all for your feedback.
I can only tell you what the immigration/Brexit supervisor told me.
Obviously you should have confidence in your own sources.
The girl I spoke to spoke a little English, as I’m sure all of them do, so no need for an interpreter.
She did say that there are appointments available in their office, so if you’re anxious about it, I would go there, rather then waiting for torre to come through. It’s very easy to find them.
If you need any help, do give me a call. It doesn’t cost anything, and I can tell you how I went about it.

MS Bespoke Joinery: Hi all, we have just had a spare bedroom makeover carried out by Mike Storey aka MS Bespoke Joinery. We had a series of Castilian doored wardrobes which made the bedroom really quite dark , along with a large bed taking all the space up in the bedroom. Mike manufactured a new set of wardrobes along with a pull down double bed thus leaving the room with a lot of space. Mike listened to our requirements and really delivered the goods. He removed the old wardrobes with minimum fuss, and meticulously installed the new bespoke furniture including a full size pull down double bed. His attention to detail is impeccable and its a pleasure to see work carried out by a craftsman, nothing was to much trouble he even fitted a small section of plaster coving. We can’t sing his praises highly enough. He can be found on  https://www.msbespokejoinery.com/

IPTV News- EU Commission Calls For Substantial Law Enforcement Boost to Fight Piracy: Recent actions to tackle unlicensed IPTV providers, resellers and related infrastructure reveal that law enforcement entities are able to pool resources to shut down huge operations. But according to the EU Commission, more needs to be done.
“The capacity of law enforcement authorities has to be substantially strengthened. Counterfeiting and piracy must become a higher priority,” the Commission notes, urging Member States and the European Council to include IP crime among the priorities for the next EU Policy Cycle.

Fast spreading bird flu puts EU poultry industry on edge: A highly contagious and deadly form of avian influenza is spreading rapidly in Europe, putting the poultry industry on alert with previous outbreaks in mind that saw tens of millions of birds culled and significant economic losses.
The disease, commonly called bird flu, has been found in France, the Netherlands, Germany, Britain, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Sweden and, for the first time this week in Croatia, Slovenia and Poland, after severely hitting Russia, Kazakhstan and Israel.
The vast majority of cases are in migrating wild birds but outbreaks have been reported on farms, leading to the death or culling of at least 1.6 million chickens and ducks so far around the region.
In the Netherlands, Europe’s largest exporter of chicken meat and eggs, nearly 500,000 chickens died or were culled due to the virus this autumn, and over 900,000 hens died on one single farm in Poland this week, the countries’ ministries said.
Belgium has confirmed an outbreak of highly pathogenic H5N5 bird flu on a poultry farm, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) said on Friday.
The outbreak, which occurred in the western town of Menen near the border with France, killed 600 birds and led to the destruction of the other 151,000 birds in the flock, the OIE said in a website alert.

Malaga Christmas lights were turned on Friday, with little advance notice to avoid crowds: The decoration which has been chosen for Calle Larios is the same as last year, the fabulous Christmas forest. More than 100 streets in Malaga city centre and important areas such as the main entrances to the city will have Christmas lights. There will be no light and music shows three times a day as there have been in previous years. This is to prevent crowds of people gathering in Calle Larios. There will, however, be Christmas songs played in the street throughout the evening.
The City Council has asked that people not gather in the area. Full article:


Van Morrison & Eric Clapton Announce Controversial Anti-Lockdown Song ‘Stand and Deliver’: Van Morrison has announced the release of another anti-lockdown song. A collaboration with Eric Clapton, “Stand and Deliver” arrives on December 4th and will support Morrison’s Save Live Music campaign. The track was penned by Morrison and performed by Clapton.
Morrison’s “Stand and Deliver” follows three previously released songs he’s written against the worldwide lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19. With “Born to Be Free,” “As I Walked Out” and “No More Lockdown” Morrison accused the U.K. government of “taking our freedom.”
His trio of songs has drawn criticism, including from Northern Ireland’s health minister Robin Swann, who referred to the songs as “dangerous.”As Rolling Stone reported, Morrison has for decades voiced grievances through song.
Per Variety, proceeds from “Stand and Deliver” will benefit Morrison’s Lockdown Financial Hardship Fund, which supports musicians who have suffered financial difficulties during the global pandemic.
“There are many of us who support Van and his endeavors to save live music; he is an inspiration,” Clapton said in a statement via Variety. “We must stand up and be counted because we need to find a way out of this mess. The alternative is not worth thinking about. Live music might never recover.”
“Eric’s recording is fantastic and will clearly resonate with many who share our frustrations,” Morrison said in a statement via Save Live Music. Source: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/van-morrison-eric-clapton-anti-lockdown-song-stand-and-deliver-1095843/
Some social-media users were none-too-pleased with the anti-lockdown song, with many saying it’s dangerous to send that message with COVID-19 infections on the rise almost uniformly around the world. In fact, Clapton and Van Morrison were widely condemned on Twitter, in some quite viscious posts, even bringing up an unfortunate Clapton quote from the 70’s he has long since apologized for, and some notorious Van Morrison pub-talk quotes, making the pair out to be right wing wacko Covid deniers.
