Re: Will Trump destroy Nato and side with Russia over western Europe?

You should swat up a bit.
It is the Russian Duma that decides whether to admit an applicant nation that wishes to become a subject of the Russian Federation. It is not the Russian President who...

Re: Will Trump destroy Nato and side with Russia over western Europe?

Trump perhaps has a secret agenda of wanting money through peace rather than endless wars.
But he is smart enough to realise that he cannot directly oppose and confront the military-industrial...

Re: Will Trump destroy Nato and side with Russia over western Europe?

Europe is not a trading bloc (or even a trading block), it is a continent.
Moscow is the largest and most important city in Europe.

Re: Best money transfer and UK credit card

If (and only if) you indeed have "excellent credit in the US" you might consider applying, in the UK, for an American Express card. Not exactly a credit card, but near enough for 99% of purposes.

Re: Post EU Referendum

Of course he can't, it'a just opinion.
Opinion that I, for one, agree with.

Common Market - good.
Ever closer political union - bad.

Re: Thoughts on 'move or purge' approach to household items

Keep your handyman tools if you have any. It's not just the money, over the years you will have thrown away tools that "don't fit your hand" or don't work for you in whatever way. And the ones you...

Re: Post EU Referendum

Perhaps the same way that the government of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan did in 1962 when they passed the Education Act 1962, which had the same effect.

Re: What would be a good take-home salary in the UK?

Yep, that's why folks are going on so much about housing.
In UK housing is easily the biggest cost for most folks with transport costs in second place.

Re: Live in UK but work remotely for US Employer

If we are talking six months, an alternative is to not move to the UK but merely visit the UK.
Entering on your US passport and staying up to six months would suggest you were a visitor.

Re: President Trump

Those would both be good things.
The US has the resources, and more than the resources, to be self-sufficient. And doing so would make America great again.

Re: BREXIT...what possibly could go wrong?

That may be true, handcuffs. That is what sadly happens in a de facto police state. But it would be unlawful, on trumped up politically biased charges. In modern Britain.

Re: Whats Hull like, anyone

I tend to agree.
The only reason to choose to live in Hull is because that is where you have a job offer. At that is reason enough right there!

Re: Taking a leap! Moving to UK with kids and bare savings
