Can’t personally see this happening. I’d think the cost alone would be horrendous. :o

I remember this being mentioned back in the late 80s. But with this lunatic in charge over there, any craziness is possible.

Given how often we seem to hear of the economic struggle going on I’m just thinking of what would be the enormous cost to change all the road signs/traffic lights, etc. Not forgetting replacing a zillion plugs and sockets. :shock:

He will pay for the signs from the money he has stolen from Turkish people. There is no need to change anything for electrical goods, how hard can it be to cut out a 2 pin plug and fit a 3 pin plug on a wire.

The real damage will done by people driving on the wrong side of the road.

Isn’t it 3 pin to 2? Then you have to change all the sockets of course.

All the house sockets are 3 pin and if we wish to connect a two pin plug into a three pin sockets, it really is not that hard. You have to live under embargo situation to work out how to do it. The Cubans can fit any car engine into an other car. Of course you can buy an adapter, how expensive can it be but if the EU has two pin set up, I am all for following the EU rules.

As I said before, all the cars are set up to drive on the left and if that is changed, it wil cause a lot accidents for a very long time till all the cars are changed too. This was the case back in the 80s when al the cars were being bought from Turkey and the steering wheel was on the wrong side. Till they found out they can buy better cars from Japan with the steering wheel on the correct side.

It is a revelation to be in the Paradise Island and be able to work and get paid UK fees. What a way to live?

You make an ass of yourself recommending something when you are not in possession of 99% of the facts. Unlike selfish you I have responsibilities which I take very seriously.

However, it is something I will do more of in the future long after I retire. The balance will gradually weigh towards Paradise Island that's for sure.

Well, that’s not very kind. I’ve lived here for almost 16 years, full time. Which I suspect is a little more, or at least not too different, than your good self. Otherwise, I’ve been a regular visitor for about 47 years.

As for making an ass of myself? You’re being a bit hypocritical in that respect. Selfish? :? How so? I haven’t a clue about your “responsibilities”. Likewise you regarding mine. You make your contempt for “Swineland” clear on a regular basis though. So, naturally, I’ve suggested you would be a much happier Lordo if you came home. And here you are, in a matter of days, confirming that view.

Yes, as I’ve said since we first got engaged, it’s a veritable Paradise Island. Good to see you have picked up on the term. :wink:

I have had a chat with the locals here and they said they have never heard of this conversion and changing which side of the road we drive in will be impossible to implement despite what the crazy Imam thinks across the water.

Secondly we been able to use 2 pin stuff from 10 years ago and here is the solution. Dead cheap.
