There’s about half a dozen shops in the parade at Collier Row boarded up,the old PO and the Nat West buildings amongst them.

We have 6 barbers and several Hair dressers that cut mens hair.
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it.

Have you recovered? You seem quiet of late.
The Stasi are quite active up here in Collier Row at present,may be due to the latest lot of incomers not knowing when or not it’s free to park.

i'm still smarting, have had a few little mini breaks lately, blowing my meager pension on substandard lodgings in the nicer parts of this once great country of ours.

Yes,a change of scenery now and again don’t do no harm.We was up in Sudbury yesterday for a Wowcher Lunch,civilised little town,always somewhere to park in the centre and we was told they don’t have the Stasi coming round,just the DVLA looking for untaxed motors.Its possible to park sensibly on a double yellow at a push,local subbies had their vans on them,oh and they have a our Councils favourite excuse for parking charges,a railway Station.
The Wife is always looking for short break bargains,we was going to have a night in cave central or Brighton as it used to be known, after a trip to the National Seed Bank and Gardens down by the Bluebell Railway,but they want £24 per day to park.
Sometimes you just don’t know what to do with all the riches successive Governments bestow on us,£7,500 a year £2,500 less than our poncing Councillors rinse us for.£54,000 if your Airmiles pet.

Don't use any shop's where you have to pay to park and never will.

Only 9 weeks and I'm off back to Roquetas de Mar. I can park anywhere there and its all free with the added bonus you are warm in winter.

True,they also have yellow post boxes that don’t move about and are not plaqued  by shootings and stabbings caused by immigrant gangs.
We nearly bought a place in Ronda,but it is cold up there in winter.
It’s only the little Grandkids that keep us here now,sadly this once great Country doesn’t hold much attraction now,we will see where we are when the Wife packs up.
Personally I’d be gone tomorrow.

Yes the country will be better off with you two gone. You have both entered the expensive parts of your health life .Please do not come back when you get ill.
I went to my 11 year old grand daughters prize giving and goodbye to year six. They had two of them telling us what would happen during the night. Every one of year six got up and told us how they had grown and learned during their time at the school all of them literate numerate and very well spoken. They explained how they had all worked as a team and the expeditions they had all been on. They were from all ethnicities and types.
My grand daughter got the years sports cup the only girl in the football team .She has run four half marathons and would have done a marathon but was too young. Some of those 11 years olds are now moving on to senior schools already with One or Two O levels Three years younger than I got my first O level. One was going to America his father had a contract to build a sports park in California They are going to lots of Havering schools Emerson park Hall Mead Coopers Coburn etc etc and will be a shining example in those schools .

This post was updated on .
Why would I come back here for healthcare??

Spain has one of the best healthcare systems on the planet and as I have an EHIC so the NHS pays for the vast majority of my healthcare needs in Spain. The expats that live in Roquetas believe the reciprocal EHIC will end after Brexit but at the moment that is unknown.

It won’t affect me as the EHIC doesn’t cover all eventualities. Some of the treatments in Spain are at a reduced cost and some are free and to make sure I am covered for all eventualities I have gap insurance so what the NHS doesn’t pay for, or only pays part of the cost, the insurance does pay.  That insurance costs me 16.50 euros a month and if the EHIC ends I can extend that insurance to cover all my health needs which I will.

The NHS right now has the worst waiting times on record and has one of the worst cancer survival rates of all the EU nations. Nearly three quarters of services are failing to treat cancer patients quickly enough. Hospitals are meant to start treatment within 62 days of an urgent referral by a GP in 85% of cases but 94 out of 131 cancer services in England failed to do that during 2018-19 compared with 36 five years ago.

You only think the NHS is good because you live in the UK – When you use other countries health systems you soon realise the NHS isn’t as good as people like to think it is and its particularly bad in Havering.

There are 129 hospital trusts in England and Barking, Havering & Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust is ranked 84 of 129 putting it in the bottom third of the country’s worst performing trusts.

Spain’s health care efficiency ranks first in Europe and third among the countries with the highest health care efficiency according to Bloomberg’s health care efficiency analysis made in almost 200 economies.

Why on god’s green earth would I pay for flights and hire a car to come back here to use Queens Hospital in Romford, pay god knows how much to park and wait half a day for inferior treatment? In Spain my health insurance pays for a taxi to take me too, and return from, the hospital.

The population of Roquetas is just under 95,000 and you are spoilt for choice for hospitals and medical centres. Havering has 260,000 people using one hospital and one poly clinic and there are 1.4 million in the BHRT area and there is a grand total of two hospitals.

The total population of Almeria City, Agadulce and Roquetas de Mar is 325,000 and there are more hospitals and medical centres than you can shake a stick at. CLICK HERE and count them, they even have a specialist mental health hospital.  You have nearly 1.5 million people using two second rate hospitals.

Some people on here are like dustbins, they accept any crap that is put in them.
