Hi Bandit, I just did some research for you and this is the bad news:

- Married persons allowance is only applicable to people born before 1935.
- The dependants allowance has to be applied for before the end of the current tax year, i.e by 05 April 2010.
- It is being dropped next financial year! Not sure how true this is or just a rumour. The easiest way to check is to email the Pension Service.


BTW, dependants allowance DOES cover a foreign wife, even if you are living aboraod with her. The pesnion service is notoriously slow taing at least 5 months to turn around applications.

Sorry.

I was in commercial IT for bluechips for over 20 years and can honestly say in all that time I only saw onw programmer touch typing. I used six fingers, but mostly the middle ones on both hands - and I can out type most people with just those two . Its all about geography, knowing where the keys are. Now, when I type in Thai I'm down to a word every minuite or so(and sometimes I can take more than a minute just to locate one letter!)
