    For the record that was a typo / slip of the brain. It was a couple of months ago at the start of the financial year that the change in rules took effect.

    Don't know - not necessarily. I am sure that there is no shortage of companies which specialise in investing money in the UK for foreign clients.

    It is very common to respect someone's wishes after they have died, and act accordingly. I am fairly sure that is what I would do in the circumstances described.

    Yes, but that isn't sustainable and doesn't lead to real growth in the economy. Sustained economic growth requires an indefinite exponential increase in the production of goods and provision of...
