Bananaman, most cars don't do 100+ miles per day. Imo, most don't do 10; just school and the shops. OK there may be some fossil Super Salesmen on the road all day, but the information superhighway has just been demonstrated by lockdown. Weekend in Lake District, yes full charge and another to come home.
I really think the slow ev rollout, and change in habits, will offer a solution.
Adv, I don't find it too much trouble, but then I'm pre-registered. The email arrives, if I like it I click the boxes, they email again to say full allocation or reduced, shares arrive usually on projected date.
Swlc, I don't think it will be possible to buy straight into isa, as PB would need to be signed up as your isa manager. As I guess you know there are ways to move them later.
