  1. If the council ask for a forwarding address make up a foreign address. If they ask for the names of the new tenants make up a fake name. Problem solved. And as a bonus you've wasted their time with extra admin work.

    Brexit Betrayal thread - Part 2

    The riddle of the border is impossible to solve . The DUP will never allow a NI specific backstop and the EU/Ireland will always defend the integrity of the CU. The circle can't be squared and most people north and south are coming to terms with it now. Hard border it is. It will be a nightmare for all the border communities and those who cross the border several times a day but for most it's not a big deal. A bigger worry in the Republic is any loss of trade for the SMEs who export heavily to the UK. I'll also add that a hard border probably won't cause any major violence (except for a bit of petty petrol bombing etc which is par the course for NI). Nationalists will be a majority in NI within 10 years and a significant majority within 20 years. Demographics will unite Ireland faster than any violence ever will.

    Barlows Annual Tenancy Deposit Recovery Charabanc

    All may not be lost. Have you given the LL written notice that you are moving out on such a date? If not you can play hardball with them and say that you've changed your mind about moving and that you won't be paying any further rent and the LL will have to go court to evict. That may give you a bit of leverage with regards to getting the deposit back early.
  4. So are we saying Netflix is a short? I've never used it but watching the stock nearly double since January seems too good to be true.
  5. Did you go to trial? Can't see a jury sending you down for that.

    Because some industries lobby hard enough to get protection from foreign competition

    Over the Border (Brexit thread)

    The UK would also be obliged to enforce a border under whatever new trade deals are done post brexit unless the UK decides to have no trade barriers and anyone can import what they like.

    saudi buyers on huth

    I'm not in favour of foreigners having unrestricted rights to UK property. They bid up prices and have little incentive to be decent landlords. I was only pointing out that pounds never leave the UK since they can't be spent anywhere else.

    Ireland and GB used the same currency at the time. A shilling taken from a farmer on the west coast of Ireland could be spent in London without any kind of currency exchange taking place. Your LL had to swap his pounds with an Australian who wanted pounds for some reason (this is all done in the background by banks but essentially that's how it works) Have a look at how Transferwise operates to see it in action.

    So to extrapolate, anyone with a savings account is siphoning money out of the country? I'm all for restricting and taxing foreign owners to death but arguing that they are removing money from the country isn't correct.

    The rental income never leaves the UK though since pounds are only useful in the UK. Instead the pounds are swapped for currency in their home country pushing down the exchange rate a bit.

    BCC blocks are coming in at one per hour now. We should get to see some proper trading soon as people move their new coins to exchanges.

    Photography - Moments in Time

    Not exactly. It was the roof top of a CIA safe house a few blocks away from the embassy. Helicopter evacuations continued for another few days after that photo.
