From a licence perspective.

For clarity, in response to your car tailer post, that 750kg was with respect to the typical unladen weight of a heavy duty twin axle car trailer.  ;)

You would probably struggle to get a three axle trailer much under a ton unladen.

You have lost me there.
I don't recall mentioning anything relative to 750kg and the use of my car transporter ::) which is most definitely in excess of 750kg...
Any unbraked trailer has a gvw of 750kg irrespective of size, axles, weight etc.....whether you have a licence category prior to 1997, Grandfather rights or a licence since 1997. If the trailer is not braked, then that is the largest gvw of any trailer permitted to be towed irrespective of your licence. It's the trailer brakes (or lack of them) that detemines the gross weight limit in this respect. If it has brakes, then the points you mentioned are applicable where the licence conditions must be met i.e. trailers over 750kg gross with a licence issued after 1997 as long as the maw combined is less than 3500kg.

 If you want to start something, take the above post,and put it on TNUK, then runaway and his, because it will start something,as any mention of the above does if you want to make it better mention A-frames and nose weight.

It does rather beg the question as to why you would do that though ???

No.  It begs the question as to WHY this rule has been put in place.  As Andy quite correctly says, his 2,200KG car would be far safer towing a 1500KG trailer than a 1500KG car towing a 1500KG trailer.

The law is an ass!

 Sorry but it's to tempting. My works vehicle weighs 8.0t and tows a 8.5t trailer which in turn loaded weighs 44t... I know different gravey. ;D I'll leave now.

Till death us do part was actually an ironic, anti bigotry programme, but it seemed the irony was lost on most of its viewers.  ::)

Excellent script writing by Johnny Speight....

The views of Alf were balanced by his daughter (Una Stubbs) and her husband (the lazy scouse git)

 Trouble is that Scouse git fathered Chirre Human rights Blair. Who made millions when her Husband signed the HRA, and took us into a fake war, O and whose mate sold all our Gold...

Posh Vectra, passed mot, 1 advisory rear number plate light of 2 not working..

Nice pass!!

I had advisory for that too.  I can't remember what year your is?  If it's pre 2006, good luck with the rusty torx screws and the brittle plastic lens cover.  Later cars tend to have better fixings which don't turn to dust when provoked.

 The first job I did when I bought car was new number plate bulbs, I put some copper slip on the screws, come out real easy,, it's the little brass terminal that the bulb sits in,,  I've given up fixing them.

BACS transfer. Plenty of mechanisms for transferring money from one country to another. Watch the exchange rate offered.

The executor (s) organise it at the Australian end by asking beneficiaries for the bank account details you want it to go into.  There maybe tax implications. There would be here in Spain. Even if you had it sent in-bits to different accounts. Taxman here has access to my Uk bank accounts. They spotted I failed to declare 2.40 of uk interest on my 2016 return.....

 You tax avoiding criminal.. ;D

Interesting conversation yesterday with a friend, he's about to inherite, about $75k Australian, and was asking how to get it into the UK, now I said dunno, maybe transfer some to you and wife's pension, minding how much you can with your own contribution, or put it in an ISA, then pay tax on intrest, not the lump..  Then I thought we have a few wealthy individuals on OOF who might have clue... As it's made curious..
