    He uses a long plastic thing with a handle bit like an oversized float, hold it up to the facings & skirtings
    then spray away, he says he wished he'd got one ages ago.

    Right, I get what you mean!
    When you get to my age you look at stuff and say, will I ever need to do that again and more oftent han not the answer is "No".
    For instance I will never do another kitchen and utility room!
    Nor a bathroom unless one needs repair!
    Only way in which I can imagine it being a possibility would be if we had to move. And then i might even pay for someone to do it. :eek::eek::eek:

    We love rules in this country don't we.. seemingly more and more written up by people who have no real world clue what they're actually ruling.

    If some random someone finds something not to their liking then ban it or at least legislate against it

    Oh no we don't. Frogland has more restrictive regulation than one can possibly imagine, this dating back to the Napoleonic laws. The Frogs appear to demonstrate against/ignore the rules but in reality they always cow-tail to Paris. Have you ever tried buying a new car in France? And don't mention their employment laws and taxation system...they're a nightmare.

    The UK's low regulatory levels are ideal for open/liberal markets...and long may they last.

    I am completely out of 6, 7, 8mm masonry drill bitz. After many years and drilling zillions of holes, all bitz in those sizes are well and truly cattle trucked. Time to bin the old ones and off to wix for some new ones.

    I think you are right. Last time I bought bits in the smaller sizes they were made in Britain. Even the big brand names have them made out of chinesium these days :(

    This is why there are so many Froggies in the UK. So many that French politicos come over here to canvass for votes.
    Starting up a new business over here is an absolute pice of p!ss compared to Frogland, so guess where they go?
    Re rules and regulations, they do have to have something for all their civil servants to do.;):rolleyes:
