I understood the EHIC Card entitled the holder to local health care at the same rate as the locals got it. That would not always be Free.

Greek History & Culture / Roadside shrines

The ghostly loneliness of Greece's roadside shrines
Sobering shoebox-sized chapels dot the countryside's steepest twists and turns

The shrines — called kandilakia — can be made from wood, stone, metal, concrete, or even marble. Some feature detailed carvings or purposely resemble famous orthodox churches. Behind a glass door or through an elegantly carved opening, there's often a lit candle or oil lamp burning among faded photographs of the deceased, images of saints, and other religious paraphernalia.

Many of these memorials are faithfully maintained — even in the most remote cliffsides.

Weird Wild Wacky / Theresa May and the Holy Grail

'Genius' video shows Theresa May in Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Many have been amused by a new video showing Theresa May as King Arthur in Monty Python's Holy Grail, made by Australia's ABC.

The Insiders team made a supercut of many of the Prime Minister's most stirring soundbites from the general election.

In the clip, Theresa May calls a general election.

However, she is swiftly met with derision as it is revealed a group of dancing knights is her cabinet.

Probably one or two who haven't been amused by it but, hey ho, that's show biz politics

Yes. And (allegedly) one who advised May to hold the snap election.

Of course, tourists should be covered by holiday insurance, anyway.

Don't think so Mike. Isn't David Davis the man in charge of Brexit?

British tourists to be guaranteed free health treatment in Europe, Government to announce

British tourists will be guaranteed free health cover when they are on holiday in the EU, David Davis has disclosed, as the Government prepared to publish its detailed Brexit negotiating position on migrants’ rights.

The Brexit Secretary will ask the EU to continue with the current European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) scheme, and said that if Brussels refuses, the Government will foot the £155 million a year bill.

Andy Parker - is he the bloke from that awful, confusing, TV ad?

Wonder what would've happened if they'd arrived and claimed the absolute bargain price transfer?
