    Advice on end of tenancy charges

    In which case you should now be telling them, as they terminated the lease you will not be paying the fees and you will be looking for the tribunal fee from them too, even if it's just to get them to drop the lbf.

    Advice on end of tenancy charges

    Re-reading your posts; did you actually break the lease? From the OP, it looks like you merely informed the agent that you would not be renewing at the end of the lease and said if they found someone you would be agreeable to them breaking the lease. If this was the case you shouldn't actually be liable for the agents fees either.

    Has Serena lost it?

    Self righteous - are you looking in the mirror? When you say I should read more newspapers and articles - what you usually mean is I should read the newspapers and articles that agree with you. Serena also has previous, she's have physically threatened line judges - far worse than any male player has with minimal punishment. The only person who took the limelight away from Osaka was Williams, if she had accepted the first correct warning, then accepted the again correct point penalty for racket abuse, she would have needed to abuse the umpire to get the THIRD correct penalty. It wasn't the umpire who made these sanctimonious comments: "One thing I've never done is cheat, ever", "I have never cheated in my life. I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her and I have never cheated. You owe me an apology." "You are the liar. When are you going to give me my apology. You owe me an apology. Say it! Say you're sorry." Where during THIS game was he not neutral or when was he not doing something consistently. Previously records with other players are irrelevant to YOUR perceived bias in this game. I suspect if she had been winning the rant would never have happened.

    Has Serena lost it?

    It's irrelevant whether she saw the coaching or not, it happened and is a code violation. I'd be interested to see your evidence that "they all do it", other than the tournaments they are allowed to coach ie all WTA events. I didn't see Osaka's coach coaching her, nor did she break a racket, nor did she abuse the umpire without punishment so it wasn't biased umpiring, that's when an umpire favours one player over the other in the same match. Also can you back up your claims that the men get away with it, is that apart from McEnore being disqualified in the Aus Open, Nalbandian being disqualified at the Aegon Open or McEnroe again at the 1987 US Open getting three code violations which actually cost him a set.

    The game penalty was for the third offence, so we should ignore the illegal coaching (admitted by her coach), the racket abuse and the rest of her rant and abuse, but just look at the thief comment in isolation, even though it wasn't in the heat of the moment but well after he gave her the code violation.

    Can you solve it

    G Edit: assuming they're sealed it would the be D&E together before tank C even starts putting water into J, H would never fill as it is blocked but if it wasn't it would fill before F

    Buying a Car etc

    To answer a couple of those: Bank account - as we had opened it in the UK as long as we went into the bank within a certain timescale (1 month of landing??) we didn't need 100 points just our passports. Medicare - we used our temporary (3 week rental) with no problem Insurance isn't compulsory (third party injury is included in the rego), so in theory you can run without it

    Football season starts today.

    Wrong again Atlético Madrid in 2013. Despite PSG winning the French league 5 of the last 6, it traditionally it is far more even than the EPL, with St Etienne and Marseille (I actually missed them winning in 2009 so France actually has 8 different winners in 20 years) being the most successful with 10 championships and three teams tying for the 10th most successful with 5 - in contrast the English league's most successful is Man U with a massive 20 titles followed by Liverpool and Arsenal on 18 and 13, the 10th most successful is on 4. In England more than 50% of the titles have been won by 4 clubs. Realistically the EPL is just like the other leagues with only 3-4 teams capable of winning it, Leicester was an anomaly. MU, MC and Chelsea have dominated for the last 15 years. Anyway none of the leagues are about football anymore, just money.

    Strange query

    I would agree, also your chances of getting back in on an evisitor visa is not certain, you may get turned back at Immigration as your intention is not to visit.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Maybe you should read all of the links you post, it will be up to each individual country to recognise professional qualifications not the EU as a whole: "The recognition of professional qualifications of United Kingdom nationals in an EU-27 Member State will be governed by the national policies and rules of that Member State, irrespective of whether the qualifications of the United Kingdom national were obtained in the United Kingdom, in another third country or in an EU-27 Member State. The temporary or occasional provision of services by United Kingdom nationals in an EU-27 Member State, even if they are already legally established in an EU-27 Member State will be governed by the national policies and rules of that Member State."

    Did you never go to Spain or Portugal before you were 25. Spain and Portugal joined the EU in 1986, and open border travel only started the year before.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    It was you that asked what cities were in the NW of the UK, but since you're now only taking about England, it would be Carlisle and Lancaster. Manchester and Liverpool are in the middle third of England

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    There aren't any cities in the NW of the UK, the two furthest north are Inverness and Aberdeen but they are in the N/NE. Does that help you.
