  1. Good luck sir. It sounds like you have nothing to fear but a big dip in your bank balance. Strictly speaking it's your partner who is supposed to be filling out the application form of course... but I found it much easier for me to do that part, and for her to just sign it. There are a couple of good British-Phils forums based in the UK, if you want to chat with those who've recently gone through the process...and pick some brains.

  8. Seems my twitchy face , perfect morning crap, and 6 cups a day are good news then. Cheers. .
  9. Aah, these wicked tax-dodging vloggers. . 'Facebook, Google and Microsoft 'avoiding $3bn in tax in poorer nations' https://www.bbc.com/news/business-54691572
