Roger Boaden who has working so very hard on getting this restored. I hope that you will react and send the mail as requested.
I have an urgent appeal from Roger Boaden to our members who registered on the European Parliament’s PETI website to signify support for Roger’s Petition to the Parliament’s Committee on Petitions on the Winter Fuel Payment removal.
It seems as though the EU petitions secretariat are washing their hands of Britain – BUT we are still part of the EU for the next two years+
Dear PETI – Messieurs & Mesdames,
REF: Petition 0085/2015 agenda item 48
I wish to register a complaint
Yesterday the PETI Committee on Petitions of the European Parliament published a draft agenda. Roger’s Petition concerning the Winter Fuel Payment is scheduled for closure by the Committee.Petition 0085/2015 agenda item 48
The agenda item states that this is based on an opinion from the Commission and other documents received. Roger’s most recent submission showed clearly that the Commission’s opinion was wrong and full of errors, and yet someone in this important Committee of the European Parliament has decided not to continue.
Many other Petitions show the number of supporting signatories – there is no such indication for Roger’s Petition. At the latest count, there were 341 signatories supporting this Petition from several countries – not an insignificant number. Why is this not recorded?
Please call for it to be examined in more detail, by allowing Roger, and others, to make a presentation to the Committee.

There is a conflict of interest between employers considering relocating staff to other EU countries and their employees. From an employer’s perspective it is probably best to wait as long as possible before taking action. This is because interim arrangements regarding Brexit may mean moves can be delayed for years or may not need to happen. This avoids costs and disruption. The timing of any move will probably also matter much more to the employee than the employer because of children’s schooling.
For employees affected the opposite is probably the case especially if the move is to a major city such as Paris. The likely timing of the Brexit notice at the end of March 2017 will be particularly unhelpful for moves in the early summer of 2017.
Paris tends to be quieter from late July through until early September. This means the window for any initial transfer of employees is only three and a half months. Anyone seeking to deal with relocation in Paris will is likely to find people on holiday from the middle of July and through August frustrating.
Schools for children will be a high priority. Parents will be reluctant to disrupt their children’s education and French language state schools will in most cases not be appropriate. Places at international schools in the wealthier areas are already very limited and in most cases the planning will involve a move in the summer so children start their new school in September 2017. Competition is already intense for places at the best international schools and applications should really be made in early January 2017.
Despite what the Parisian education authorities say about more places being created, the discerning and cynical may think places and related fees will escalate if a rush starts say in April 2017 once the Brexit notice is served.
Good quality rental accommodation will become an issue if well paid arrivals are all competing for similar flats in the same areas at the same time. This will push up rental prices in the late spring and early summer. Other ancillary removal costs will also escalate.
Prime property prices
Property prices in areas in which foreigners want to live are already moving up and this trend will continue once anecdotal evidence of well off new arrivals spreads. Parisian estate agents think in terms of euros per square metre. They are well aware the price per square metre in prime London areas is much higher than in Paris. Their likely thought process will be that new arrivals from London selling London flats will be in a position to pay more.
Work and residency permits
Work permits may become an issue though these will probably be resolved by the employer. However there will remain issues relating to permits for other members of the employee’s family who also move.

Born into a wealthy family, loving parents, and a beautiful home, Zafferra and Noora have the best of everything, including the chance to be educated in London. What more could they want?
Noora is engaged to Michel, handsome and with good prospects he is everything a girl could want, and he is deeply in love with her.
However, this story is about sibling rivalry, a common problem, however Zaffeera’s jealousy of her sister Noora transcends all reason. Carefully hidden beneath her meek demeanour, Zafferra is harbouring a deep jealousy, it is consuming her! Nobody realises, but as a young girl she had fallen in love with Michel after a chance meeting years before, she should be his wife, and is determined it will be so.
Time is running out, soon the sisters will be leaving London, returning to Egypt for Noora and Michel’s wedding. So, during their last few days in London, Zafferra puts her plan into action…
When they excitedly return home, the reception Noora receives leaves her confused. Then, when she is called to a meeting with her father, her life changes forever. For their father, Farid Fendil is a loyal MOFHAJ member, and having been presented with undeniable evidence of an immoral crime being perpetrated, by a member of his family, he knows what he must do.
Thus Noora finds herself fleeing for her life, travelling across continents, in her pursuit of sanctuary she must take on a new identity.

This gripping novel captures your attention from the very first page. It takes you on a wonderful adventure, yet it is also a beautiful love story, interlaced with jealousy, betrayal and a myriad of other emotions.

In this superb spy thriller, the author has revisited the weeks leading up to the 1995 assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The assassination itself is shrouded in mystery, of course being such a radical leader, Yitzhak Rabin knew that was never going to be popular with everyone, however, he did what he believed to be right in his search for peace, by extending his hand to Yasir Arafat, leader of the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization).
And so the story begins…
It is the 11th October, 1995, and Al-Mazir arrives at Charles De Gaulle airport. He has been sent for a meeting with Abu Yusef, and a rich Saudi prince, their sponsor. The men are eager to show the world the power and strength of the Palestinian resistance as it unites against the Zionist enemy. However, Elie Weiss is head of the Special Operations Division in Europe. Al-Mazir’s arrival has been noticed by his agents Gideon and Bathsheba, and they have other plans…
Soon, readers of this book’s prequel ‘The Jerusalem Inception’ will see ghosts from the past arising. We discover that Lemmy, the thought to be dead son of Rabi Abraham Gerster, (one time leader of the Neturay Karta, an ultra-orthodox sect), is very much alive, and is now married with a son of his own. With a false identity he is living under the name of Herr Wilhelm Horch, and is vice-President of his father-in-law’s Hoffgeitz Bank in Zurich.
Cleverly set in place years before for long term infiltration, Lemmy has been clandestinely working for Special Operations leader Elie Weiss all along. Despite the years not having been kind to him, aged and ill, Elie is determined to lay claim to the billions of dollars in blood money secreted for General Klaus Koenig, by his old school friend and banker Armande Hoffgeitz. The money had come from the selling of the jewels and gold from the WWII holocaust victims, and the amounts had been noted in a ledger. Many years may have passed since that day, but Elie’s memory of that time is still vivid. A survivor of such a terrible war, how could he forget its horrors, or the day, right at its end, when he and a young Abraham Gerster, after killing the general had found the ledger, and a beautiful pregnant girl, now Mossad agent Tanya.
This gripping spy thriller, has a fantastic plot, which, set at such a tremulous time, in such a vehemently religious part of the world makes it enthralling reading. I found the insight into the fanaticism of the members of the PLO, and the acts they commit horrifying. That people such as the characters in this book exist is without doubt true, however, the true depths they are prepared to go to, the taking of lives without a second thought, and the lies they are prepared to tell in pursuit of their goals are incredible.
I loved reading this action packed, exciting, and sexy take on a real event in fairly modern history by this talented author.

This enthralling murder mystery is set in Telluride, Colorado, at Mountain Village, once a sleepy ranch town, it is now the place to live, with many of the rich and famous having homes there.
One of its residents is the favourite leading man of the moment, Mitch Houston, who seems to have it all, however, all this changes when his wife receives a phone call from a reporter, giving her news which will change their lives forever.
For the Western Slope of Colorado Chief Medical Examiner, Jane Wallace, Tuesday June 6th starts very early with a phone call from Sheriff Tom Patterson, there’s been a murder, and of course she must attend.
Five years have passed since the death of her beloved husband John, and Jane has never come to terms with the loss, she is living with it every day. Her other children have flown the nest, and now she lives with her son Ben, finding great comfort in her church, and she enjoys the company of the new young priest Father Matt. It is he who introduces her to Eoin Connor, a true crimes author.
One death is a tragedy, however, as the death toll steadily rises, it soon becomes apparent that the killer must be found, but there is only clue, the killer’s weapon of choice is a .22 rifle. Not much to go on.
Throughout the book there are many small stories giving the reader snapshot insights into the varied lives of its main characters, and building such a depth to the story that it is simply totally enthralling.
I loved reading this very cleverly written murder mystery, which was packed full of suspense, and can’t wait for Book 2 to be released.

Rosie is soon to discover that her destiny lies before her, and that the locket is not the only legacy which is handed down from mother to daughter. Her uncle often fondly tells her that her mother used to see goblins and demons hiding in the grounds, strange creatures, just like she has started seeing. However, it is not until she loses a very special bracelet that her search to find it takes her through a magical portal into another place, Mind Space, and she realises that the creatures really do exist…
Mind Space is a mysterious realm which is inhabited by strange and mythical creatures. She and three friends, (who are transported with her by accident) find themselves trapped there until they can complete their quest. It is a land in torment, torn apart by the fierce angel wars between the Knights of Lousã and the Dark Angel and his demons.
This exciting adventure follows the brave friends’ quest through this strange land, where they find themselves fighting against evil side by side with strange creatures and a fire breathing dragon.
Who will win the angel wars?
Will Rosie find her bracelet, and if she does, how do they return to their time?
The answers all lie within the pages of this fantastic fantasy story which will enthral young adults of both sexes. However, not only is this an exciting story, but it also demonstrates the incredible powers of true friendship and loyalty, and the comradeship which can be shared.
I thoroughly enjoyed this thrilling story and look forward to reading its sequel.

Two aromatic shrubs flowering this week - Rosmarinus ‘Corsican Blue’ and Lavandula dentata. They are happiest planted in full sun with a free draining soil and some shelter from cold winds. They will provide you with evergreen ground cover and scented foliage plus flowers on and off throughout the year in milder weather. The Rosemary has a semi-trailing habit whilst the Lavender is shrubby, both can be trimmed to keep a good shape.
