Hmmm, so do you know where they operate? How can you have faith in something you aren't supposed to know about?
Because I'm intelligent enough to know that they know whats going on. Same as you have faith in God, you have never met or seen him but you believe he's there.

Did not know there were elections coming up in Egypt, what are they for? Not knowing about Egyptian Politic and not wanting to know either, I do not take a great deal of interest.

The parliamentary elections are being run in two stages in March and April. I do not believe that you were not aware of this.

No not really, I had forgotten in the same way I had forgotten Lucy Beale had been murdered. when things take so long you do have a tendency to forget these things, and especially at my age, and when you have no interest in politics. I had always thought the government had been formed, that is why new laws etc were being passed. Maybe in the same way Lauren had been walking around with a Post It stuck to here shoe for a day!

Do you know what I mean Brian ??? :lol:

Who is or was Lucy Beale?

Don't bother to answer that one - I Googled the answer. I have absolutely zero interest in soap-operas. :zz

If they don't interest you, then why bother asking the question? :P

Living in Egypt, and having so much invested there by way of property, surely it is in your best interest to have some idea about Egyptian politics and policies!

Not really Hepzi, I have never been really interested in Politics throughout my life, I was 22 when I last voted, I found it difficult to see the difference between the parties. My only real interest was which party made me feel A) Secure and B) financially better off. In the UK at the moment when they talk about transparency it really means transparency, you can see through the lot of them. The other thing is i was not educated in Politics so I do not really know enough to vote in the UK, only what the UK politicians tell us, and we all know when a politician is lying because his or her mouth moves.... :lol:

If you feel really threatened or under the cloud of being in danger, you may be able to find a hotel in the UK that will listen to you and take you in until you find your feet back in the UK, you may also be able to get funds from a charity to help you. It is possible, and it can be done. But you need to be a clever sod or a liar!

This morning I saw a headline about a bomb outside a KFC in Helwan. I was vaguely aware there had been a previous KFC attack elsewhere so I looked back for old stories and discovered that there actually have been attacks on at least 6 or 7 KFC outlets throughout Egypt in the last 2 weeks. I think things are heating up already.

They do have their uses when seeking small change from large notes in Egypt... :cg
Buy a 5 LE bottle of water and present a 200 LE note. :cool:
