Financial Advisors

Interesting article in the National on supposed new regulations proposed, but will they ever actually be introduced and will it make any difference?

Re: Re applying for UK driving licence when returning perm to UK

Did you manage to sort out this issue with the online system? I'm in the same situation.

I could put the address that was on the old card that expired a few years ago, but haven't lived there for...

Re: Favourite Christmas song

Do they know it's Christmas by Band Aid - the original one, not the sh1tty revamped version done more recently.

Some other great suggestions on here so far though. Except East 17.

Re: Car Batteries

Yep - they suddenly die, no warning whatsoever, has happened to me several times, always in the hot summer months, and of course, generally in the most awkward of situations, not at home.

Re: England v SA Rugby

Thanks, I did watch it on Sky Sports in the end, but had to pay. I was just curious as to what actual legitimate channel over here showed it.

Re: England v SA Rugby

Did anyone manage to watch the (England) match over here? If so, what channel was it on?

I know the other main matches were on BeIn Sports but never found the England one in any of the listings.

Re: Is Abu Dhabi good for family

Indeed, there are certain 'life skills' that they won't get here that I'd like them to learn for themselves. The older they are though, the more difficult it would be, and I think it would make them...

Re: Is Abu Dhabi good for family

I'd agree with this, my kids have grown up here (in Abu Dhabi) but my son is now approaching his teens and my daughter not too far behind, so we're planning our exit strategy for the next year or so....

Re: VPN - fines

Re: England Football Great Resut

Wish they'd had no Hart, a decent goalie would have saved at least that second goal.

And completely agree on the other points, particularly "overpaid bunch of pussies".
