Agreed. There isn't a need to hide anything, you ARE allowed to be there without a job.

If that is the truth, no harm in saying that.

But your Tier 1 (General) visa gives you the right to come to the UK to seek work, or indeed to start your own business. So no need to give yourself just one month, if you don't want to.
