Re: Evening everyone! New member to the site with USA ambitions!

That's what I'm thinking as well. Can't be the best way to guarantee people with the highest skills and experience though, can it? I think the US immigration system is rather, ahem, antiquated and...

Re: Possible move to USA (Virginia) ?

If you can buy a place in FL for example, you could let it out to familes on holiday while you were in the UK, and then it's all yours when you need it. I know a few people who have looked into this....

Re: Work in construction Industry Why is it drying up?

The people will not be ready until the point it becomes obvious they would be richer and more stable, then they would dump the pound instantly. That point is approaching, IMO. The political class...

Re: Work in construction Industry Why is it drying up?

Putting the cultural norms of our own time on to Truman et al is a mistake, and we can only judge his decision by looking at this through the values of his own time. Hiroshima was supposed to induce...
