Re: Permanent Move to Scotland

I do hope you are right Dunroving. Glad you are no longer 'Undecided' that White Paper is just a farce. I think there would be civil war if people who had voted to stay in UK were forced to give up...

Angry Re: Independence for Scotland

JUST VOTE NOOOOOOO people, on behalf of all the Scottish-born people living in the rest of the UK who are denied a vote.

Re: Jitters

You need to argue your case with the UK school based on the difference in start time of the school years between the 2 countries. One of mine went back a year.

Re: Is it possible to save in NZ?

Yeah...did it 3 times in 5 years in Wellington...locals sometimes said why would you pay to walk around something that is usually free but that's cash-strapped Kiwis for you.

Re: Decided to Return

I think it is a bit extreme to home school just so the parent in USA can have 50-50 access. It would make her very isolated in her new location - school is absolutely the best place to make friends...

Re: What makes Britain Great?

Re: Now it is my turn :)

Re: Can father stop us leaving?

You do not want to be on the same piece of land (let alone stuck on it) with this person. Your solicitor knows what he is talking about and likely giving you good advice. Leave now.
