Cornish.. in situ... when we were home last we had trouble with a neighbour...
but come to think... if I had to guess the accent I'd say he was an Essex lad.. and a bit dim as well -- but that was a whole 'nother thread.

I should apologize to any possible council tenants or family of here.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the vast majority of council tenants.


( however the guy I referred to in my post above was a true piece of work, and we are doing our best to have him tossed out on the street, or inflicted upon some other council )

Re: grumpy brits

ok so now we have established that you have no grudge agaînst a name nor council tenants - well that just leaves people from Essex then. Or would you rather close the thread?

as I mentioned in an earlier post... I can not and would not try to paint them all with a same brush ( as you have done with "septics" ) but I only refer to those unfortunate cretins I've had to deal with.

bloody hell..... I needed a translator twice.
