  1. OK, I didn't realise that. Who is obliged to notify HMRC? One of the banks involved?
  2. Its my intention that when I move out of the property I'm renting to let HRMC know the dates we rented the property, the amount we paid and the landlords details. I've no reason to suspect that our landlord is dodgy, and if they're not, it wont be a problem for them
  3. Under any other circumstances wouldn't we already have some government props for the market by now? The continuing Brexit débâcle seems to have have paralysed the government and pulled their focus from everything else, including housing. My feeling is that they'd have to get any props in before sentiment shifts, otherwise they'll have no effect. Is it already too late for props and if not, will Brexit continue to occupy all government activity?
  4. But then that's nothing you couldn't already do with the American's GPS. Sorry I probably misunderstood your comments. I thought you were worried that they were going to be able to 'track you from space' without your knowledge.
  5. Do you think this means that the satellite could track a car without any requirements on the car itself? Surely this would mean the cars would need to be fitted with GPS receivers and then connect to some sort of radio network?
  6. Can you explain the connection between a passive satellite navigation system and the active tracking of a vehicle?
  7. What I was driving at, and what @HairyOb1seemed unable and unwilling to accept, is that the default position is if nothing is agreed, then all the EU treaties just stop applying to the UK. Yes, with intervention, there could be all sorts of alternative outcomes, but crashing out is the default outcome. If my interpretation of this default outcome is wrong, I'd really appreciate being corrected. Assuming I am correct about this fall-back position, then we can ask what alternatives there are to this default and how likely each one is. As I understand it, getting an extension under article 50 requires agreement of the European council, and I doubt they'd just rubber stamp the UK's request without wanting something in return. @HairyOb1 was arguing that article 50 can just be stopped by the UK parliament. I'd like to see analysis to show the mechanism by which parliament could stop it and where the numbers in parliament come from for a vote. To me it seems that the possibility of a cliff edge brexit is not as as remote as some would have us believe.
  8. Ok, my she's quick, and good too. She tells me in January, the UK will formally apply to either extend Article 50 by 2 years, or rescind it. The EU will meet the following month and support it, meaning we're still in the EU on April 1st. HTHBIDI I wasn't asking you to predict what the UK might do, in fact I tried to that as clear as possible by saying "if the UK takes no further action between now and March 31st". You're quite right to doubt that your answer helped, but I can't see what would make you hopeful that it had. It seems a bit strange that you're being so evasive and unable to address such a simple question, so I wont embarrass you by asking it again.
  9. Well by its definition anything I think will happen is what could and might happen. However, we could have a GE in November, Moog might get into power and will withdraw us immediately. There are a few options open, however, if the government votes before March over a No Deal, one of the options mooted is extending Art 50, or even revoking it. Personally, I believe we'll appeal to extend it, have a GE or Referendum. Either it's moot anyway, as I have never believed we would leave anyway. Sorry if I'm being a bit thick, but I don't feel that you've answered my question. I've done my best to state it as clearly as possible, but I'll try again. Given that article 50 has been triggered, if the UK takes no further action between now and March 31st, what is the relationship between the UK and the EU on April 1st?
  10. Nope, we can go back and say, look, can we extend this please, or at least stay until we sort this mess out.  I'm not quite sure what you're saying 'nope' to. If nothing shifts between now and March 31st, what is your interpretation of what will happen? Not what could happen, not what we might do, but what will happen if we do nothing from now and given article 50 has been triggered.
  11. As article 50 has been invoked, if nothing further happens between now and March 31st, what is your opinion as to what would happen on March 31st? Would the treaties cease to apply? Assuming the UK could unilaterally revoke article 50, how could this come about? Who would put this bill before parliament and where would the numbers come from to vote it though?
  12. Who's other legal opinion? And which body would arbitrate in case of a dispute?
  13. The third paragraph of article 50 is It looks pretty inevitable to me, can you explain why its not? How can we withdraw from the Article 50 process?
  14. Can you explain how you reach your conclusion. As far as I understood Article 50, once triggered then after two years all treaties become void. That is there to 'get through parliament'? If everyone just sat on their hands from this point forward, come March 31 don't we just get a no deal brexit?
  15. Yup, you can either pay the the £13.50, or pay £1.12, the cost of two second class stamps to enter by post, I know which I'd choose. Could torpedo this competition by spreading the free entry option on Twitter.
