    10 out of 10 Tony, all the boys that work for me that live in Daggannnamme talk like that,
    Anyone in the building industry will know that essex is the Mecca of ceiling fixers.
    Completely different from the more cultured Souuuth Londoners.

    Sorry can't make Saturday as football and Ferrari on the same day would cause serious wife melt down. Happy to meet to go to silverstone though, plenty of time to sort that, Hopefully we can get out and play before that.
