Re: Enter UK without UK passport

You won't need a visa if it's for leisure - you will be fine.

Back in the UK, it seems to have taken off as perhaps 4 in 10 of my friends back there were doing it!! Hope it takes off here,...

Re: Matched Betting

Completely agree - didn't ignore the cut from Betfair - it looks like Fixtheodds take that into consideration when calculating the odds. They are a matter of pennies off.

Re: Next Cleaning Question....

Re: Matched Betting

Re: Tax, UK House decorating

I don't know how it all works with us expats, etc - but if you were a UK tax payer, you could claim this under capital allowances. See this article that was published in the Daily Mail not that long...

Gaddafi's son killed. Practically next day Bin Laden Killed. Distraction?
