Hello everyone, I'm in the process of renewing my british passport. Only problem is, as mentioned on the .gov website, the passport photo needs to be signed by someone who has a british identity.   How, where, who could I approach for signing my passport photo in this part of Belgium (Ghent)?

I'm advised that should the vote for Scottish Independence be a "yes" result, the value of the pound may be affected by as much as 10%. That's a potential devaluation by as much as 10%. So, if anyone is thinking of exchanging an amount of currency, either way, it may be worth doing it before the vote (for sterling to euros), or afterwards, (for euros to sterling).

Can someone advise who I should go to for help in retreiving my deposit from my ex-landlord.  When we paid the deposit we paid two-thirds cash, one-third by cheque.  The landlord is now claiming I only paid with two cheques, and he claims he only banked one of them.  I can show bank statements that show the cash withdrawals for the amount I paid in cash.  The landlord is unable to produce the 2nd cheque that he claims I gave him but that he has not banked. Where do I go next?  Any advice? thanks.

Hello Does anyone know where I can get rid of all my copper coins (I hate them! Australia has the best idea of getting rid of them completely!!). But I have a lot, and don't know if I can just take them into a bank or if there are those dispensers like they have in UK for them? I'd be grateful for any ideas. Thanks.

My brother would like to live here but is self-employed and would like to continue to stay that way as he has a good number of clients throughout Europe.  He seems to think that you can pay his social charges back in the UK for upto a year rather than here - anyone know if that is true?
