Re: Visa options - UK lawyer

My cousin used Law as way into the Compliance arena in banking/fund management etc. (I'm not too clued up on the field to be honest). Doing quite well for himself and I am sure would be in a...

Re: Regressive nation

McDonalds in Towns and Cities have a tendency to be owned by a single Franchisee, so it's likely if one decides not to stock a product, all the others in Town will be the same, HQ isn't going to be...

Re: 2020 Election

Re: E2 essential employee visa denied

Re: Is It Wrong To Want To 'Look' For An American Girlfriend

On a return trip to the UK, I attempted to try out my new found ability to tell some America accents apart on a waitress. She played along as I wondered if she was from the Mid West, before finally...

Re: E2 essential employee visa denied

See, I did think Golf, with the retail and Trump bit thrown in to spice up the challenge of guessing, but what on earth would the Brits be hoping to teach the locals?

Re: Is It Wrong To Want To 'Look' For An American Girlfriend

Re: Where to start!? Fact finding for a Future Move to Central Florida

Re: Is It Wrong To Want To 'Look' For An American Girlfriend
