Re: London is a great such place to live.

I don't live in London anymore, though I suppose I could find her in the woods on a full moon with her other 12 lady friends.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

You should have ignored the email and waited for her to take you to court.

"I so miss London. Not"

Ah yes, but as the man said, "Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that London can afford"

Samuel Johnson to Boswell 1777.

Mind you, I left my home town forty years ago, so what what do I know? :smiley:

Sadly that wouldn't end well.. no compo.. the courts frown heavily on tactics like the one you've described. They are very principled places and would take the view of "You should have told her you no longer live there". They don't like people messing around and playing games.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Johnson never had to endure the 8:00 train to London Bridge station or he'd change his tune sharpish.

@7up  No law against changing your email address and not telling former neighbours.

Re: London is a great such place to live.

I just find it funny that nobody's pointed out the obvious...

 

She's a solicitor apparently, and for a solicitor to build a case, first they have to observe and gather the facts, speak to the right people and put everything together, can't be a very good solicitor if they didn't even notice a neighbour moved out 4 years ago... :2funny:

She works in a solicitor's practice.

Re: London is a great such place to live.

No excuse, 4 years of not seeing the same people who were there, not a smart person, hell, I'd notice if neighbours round here moved out, usually a dead giveaway is the "For Sale" or "To Let" signs... :2funny:

Or if the solicitor's office she works at does the conveyancing. :laugh:

Re: London is a great such place to live.

I lived in SE London till I was 42. In my twenties I used to say I would never want to leave. Now I would never go back except for the occasional short visit.

Re: London is a great such place to live.

Depends what you want out of it, travelling to work in around London is not much fun I'll grant you that having experienced it myself, but it has more going for it than just about any city in the UK and can give many others in the world a run for their money. I think their is a bit of jealously a few sour grapes here. :wink:

I spent my formative years there and have good memories of the place but, like many others of my generation rising house prices and clogged streets made us move further afield. Sure it has it's rough spots but then what town and city does not - there are parts of Paris for example where only a fool would venture unknown and yet.....
