    To get it past HMRC just book it out as a virtual reality experiment where you're charged for physical location but you'll be living and working in virtual space.

    Cloud based hot desking.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    I do it at times by going camping for a few days when its hard for me to concentrate on some work. But generally end up enjoying myself and not doing what I was supposed to do.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I think this one is the most outrageous attempt at evading taxes. Even wants an all inclusive! The cheek of it. I thought the bar was raised with a campervan one of the eejits wanted.

    Can someone beat this guy?
