    There may be a lot of countries that have gained independence from the UK, but only one country has ever left the UK.

    I hope he's got some new lies prepared coz the old ones have been found out. I recall one of Nigel's stories that was lambasted as an outright lie at the time was the formation of a European Army https://www.businessinsider.com/eu-countries-agree-mega-army-2017-11?IR=T Perhaps some of Nigel's other lies will come true in time?
  4. That's not true. With a chocolate spanner you can still eat if you get hungry. With a lawyer you can't afford to.

    Notifying ATO when moving overseas

    It sounds as if you are eligible to submit an early tax return. The requirements are that you - are leaving Australia - are ceasing to be an Australian resident for tax purposes - will no longer derive Australian sourced income (other than interest, dividend and royalty income) Note that early tax returns can only done on paper (by using the old forms and writing in big bold numbers the year you are submitting for) because the electronic forms for next year are not available in advance.

    Well of course it's a separate country - that's why we're discussing the border issue! Think it through.

    There's another obvious 'solution' that isn't being mentioned. Ireland leaves the EU.
  8. I know from the Montessori where my wife works that there's always a demand. They're even sponsoring someone because she has Montessori qualifications that they can't find a local applicant with.

    The only problem with your simile is that Suez was a well organised tactical event and it was carried out like clockwork. The British and French (and their Israeli co-conspirators) were not defeated militarily.

    Hopefully a simple question(s)

    If you sold the house before moving to Australia then it is outside the scope of Australian tax (and in any case there is a private residence exemption in Australia too which can be used for up to 6 years after you ceased to live there). You only have to pay tax on money earned after becoming an Australian tax resident (except for Australian sourced income which of course even foreign residents do have to pay tax on). Unless you are a temporary resident you have to pay tax on the interest earned whether or not you move it to Australia so that shouldn't change your calculations at all.
  12. Should the person who lit the fire at The Clarendon Arms be worried?

    In 1969 that would have been a very generous hourly rate.

    No. The UK will not need to apply. The UK is a member of the WTO. The EU is also a member (as are all the members of the EU). The UK will lose it's share of the EU membership of the WTO (whatever benefit that has for anyone) but not it's own membership.

    The UK is a member of the WTO. 'No deal' does mean the UK would cancel its membership.
