Might take some time, due to risk assessment, H&S & the EU working time directive. Added to that, the JBTM & SSWU (Jam Butty Treacle Mine & Syrup Shifting Workers Union) are demanding reduced hours, more pay & quarterly Charabanc trips to Blackpool so they can go on the lash, get free Fish & Chips & all paid for by the employers ................. so your tiles may take a while.

When the roof's on they can use some parkin to plug the holes in the walls and cover the rotting floorboards with tripe.

Was thinking more of Doddys gang, Mick the marmalizer, Nigel Ponsonby Smallpiece, Wee Hamish McDiddy, Harry Cott & Dickie Mint. Trade unionists the lot.

Ah well you would being a Scouser. The treacle people have names like Wizzle and Mitton which are more familiar round Accy. And my favourite is the expression "what the Mankinholes is that?" - Mankinholes being a village near Todmorden.

Does this mean that now someone has taken custody of the building you will no longer be able to traipse the light fantastic through the corridors of yesteryear ?

You have to stop with this relentless restless urge to get him on other threads as well as this one. I don't think dissipation will dilute his barmpot dissertations for martyrdom ( I've just given myself a headache )
Less, Retlaw, jaysay and 2 others like this.
