    I like the mini Dreadnought but I find the issue with a fair few of these small versions is they're a bit thick. The speedbird doesn't wear that big so I'm not sure if a mini version is something I'd go for.

    I was glad to see he won't be going with the NHT branding on the dial for the production models.

    Cheers. That's nearly double what my current estate agent is charging but on the other hand they haven't sold it yet.

    I'm getting a bit bored of the whole thing so the cash advance thing looks tempting but it looks like they take a while to offer that at a high level (and they may not offer the full amount).

    Or, does anyone want to buy my flat?

    I find the issue with a lot of those contraflow routes is drivers don't realise they're two way for cyclists and think it's some cyclist going the wrong way and won't give way as a point of principle.

    Rumours are KS' nickname is shagger and the lawyer in Bridget Jones' Diary was based on him.

    What more do you want?

    What fee did you pay with Nested if you don't mind me asking? Their website says 1.75% which is obviously pretty high compared to others but I know a lot are flexible.

    I mean more that the article presents them all but then seems to not highlight them or draw any conclusions. It would be easy to miss that he owned it given the way it's phrased.

    I haven't done anything so extensive but my experience from similar stuff is that:

    a) It's a bit grim living somewhere that is part building site. There's dust everywhere, various stuff isn't working, if you're home during the day it can be noisy, etc

    b) Things can move quicker if there's less concern about someone living there. A room can be used as a bit of a workshop, the property doesn't need to be made habitable each day (e.g. you can leave the water turned off for a few days), etc

    I'm not sure if you need to go as far as putting stuff into storage but not living there may make it a bit more pleasant. Although whether the cost of an Airbnb is worth it is probably something you need to consider yourself.

    There's some weird contradictions in that article that don't seem to be addressed.

    It appears he simultaneously knew nothing about it and owned the company that controlled it.

    Last time I counted I think I got something like 42 (including pedestrian crossings) in just over 5 miles, N8 to Warren Streetish. Sounds like I should be using Brun's route.

    Of course, we don't know exact figures so it's all its/buts/maybes but it's more about the players surely wondering why 'this' number is your salary and 'this' is a company we've set up (which is just a name MANUPROP, WIGGY9 etc etc) that you're now the owner of and will have 200k deposited into it every year - appreciate that agents/advisors surely have a part to play also.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if bigger players like Farrell didn't already have companies set up which had image rights paid into them as a more tax efficient way of being paid. This is generally what happens with footballers (some transactions being more dubious than others).
