    moving back from perth

    Hi There i havent been on for a while so was wondering if i could get some advice from those who have returned. After being here for 4 years work has dried up in construction and i hear its busy in blighty. Is anyone able to tell me how does the new car tax work as its not in your windscreen anymore. Any advice for getting good van insurance without no claims bonus as here in WA insurance is not obligatory. i was getting around to it. Thanks for the help

    if i come back

    im in construction its dead. It took me 10 years to get here so its not been taken lightly about going back. Its so bad that if we leave it any longer we wont have the air fare. Very worrying, iv been offered lots of work back in the UK so hoping to save up and come back later
