Wow Shocked ... so ban the use of the alphabet completely and that's another 52% saving, which should not only wipe out the deficit completely, but even leave enough money for bobcuts to be taught how to spell 'defecit' - or is that supposed to be a clue that he's talking ****?

And that would save us all from the defecit that the hmtreasury has given us over the last few years Razz Rolling Eyes

But I Thought The Current Vogue Was To Overuse Capital Letters For Every Word Regardless Of Whether It Should Be Or Not. (This Is Much More Effort To Type Than It's Worth Mad ).


My lease has no punctuation which can lead to funny interpretations
