Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Would "working a bit harder" get you in to the USA if you desperately wanted to go there? There are lots of Brits there but all I...

Re: UK Bank accounts after Brexit.

Re: UK Bank accounts after Brexit.

That seems to be a rather specific facility, as opposed to a general feature of living in one country and having a legacy account in a previous country of residence, albeit one which might be used...

Re: UK Bank accounts after Brexit.

Are residents of countries outside the EU not currently allowed to retain UK bank accounts then? :unsure:

Re: Water electric waste etc

I'm not particularly well up on building matters but the OP only mentioned interior renovation - that wouldn't require planning permission or an architect, would it (assuming it doesn't also consist...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Not so.

I have posted items on here regarding people who actually campaigned for the illegal and co-ordinated Leave efforts making public their objections to what was so underhandedly done in...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

By repositioning itself more in the sphere of influence of the USA? There is a considerable body of expert opinion which says otherwise.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

I don't recall any Remainers describing the EU as an ideal but no matter.

You can't on the one hand carp constantly about the UK not having had enough influence / not getting everything "in the...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Could the UK have used a veto if it disagreed with a majority of member states?

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

You're tying yourself in knots.

Some things still require unanimity. Crucial stuff, like new member states or the fundamental objectives and rules as set out in the treaties.

Re: Water electric waste etc

Who - the vendor of the property?

Tell me something - does the new UK / Japan FTA contain any rules about state aid?

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Re: Relocating to Lisbon
