Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I just want to add that there is a growing body of opinion that Brexit is incompatible with the continued existence of the UK.

Re: Paying bills - what options?

write them a letter telling them to send a paper bill. You can then send them a cheque? do you still use cheques ( I do ) or pay at a post office ( at their expence )
