Re: Give owner notice of their liability for damage to my land?

I own the "front" of the drive and next door have a right of way over it to get to their own driveway - I can check exact wording if necessary, but the Land Reg plot shows it within my plot.

Check the exact wayleave wording.

Most have a clause relating to maintenance.

Re: Letters printed from iPad

Bit of research on behalf of my partner. She’s looking for a program (app?) to produce letters that can be printed from the iPad. These would normally be single sided sheets and would have her address, etc in the form of a template. I suppose we are looking for a word processing program (app?). Wou...

Re: Would No-Deal be really that bad?

WTO ain’t gonna happen, you may want it, lots of Brexiters want it, but there’s no majority for it in the HoC One more time. The HofC don't have to vote for it for it to happen. It is what happens if they don't vote for anything else. And that is a vital safeguard against MPs being endlessly self-i...

Re: Would No-Deal be really that bad?

In the case of cars, we can apply the maximum tariff of 10% to all imported cars (and car parts). The manufacturers of these cars increase the price by 10% to pay for the tariff. It will not be worthwhile to manufacture cars in the UK, so we would lose that industry. A 10% increase in the price of ...

The bits I saw today were just same-old, same-old with even a mention by a SNP lady of bent bananas.

Also, seen many instances of smart-phone use by MPs during debates and I consider that they should be banned in the chamber.
