    Yeah, it was a cheap way to gain publicity and let the Greens do a few fist-pumps in the air.

    A load of crap.
    All these doom predictions are from people with no idea of the housing market.

    As expected, we now buy plastic bags for bin liners instead of using the free supermarket bags.
    Overall, no change in the number of plastic bags used....

    He shouldn't reduce the rent for the other tenants.
    That would be silly.
    Don't disturb their agreements.
    Just increase it for the naughty tenant.
    This is business.

    Why would your company want to entertain strangers?
    You can be generous to others but that doesn't make it a deductible expense.

    What you report sounds unbelievable.
    Are you searching correctly?

    Me too.
    A door between the lounge and dining/kitchen area has been removed in the past.
    If I get a query about requiring more heat I'll just reinstall that door.

    This is the age of entitlement.
    Things should be provided in Rolls Royce quality - nothing second best for them.
    If there's a fault, ask for compensation.

    Or the French one.
    Or the USA one.
    Or the Welsh one.
    Almost any national anthem but our own.
