Lets hope the law commission and government dont propose nationwide deregulation......otherwise that £70K will look like an awful waste of money #-o

I heard that the moon is made of cheese.
When you say MAKE, you you mean MAKE or TAKE. There is an auful lot of difference. I have a mate who takes over a grand a week but he makes only about £250 a week after paying all his costs.

If you are taking over a grand a week (I wish) you have long left your fixed costs behind. Profit before tax as an owner-driver paying radio rent should be around the £650 mark.

Nice to meet you Sunday, btw, Grandad. Small world and all that...

When our local council deregulated in the early nineties there were a few who lost thousands on plates that they had paid for in transfers of interest. It is a corrupt, risky business.

OK, so we've established that neither Toots nor Skippy can spell, but where's Skippy's grammatical deficiencies?

He missed the full stop at the end of the sentance.



Should'nt that read "He missed the full stop at the end of the sentence." as a "sentance" is handed out by a court.

If you read the posts after that post you would see that it was a deliberate spelling mistake. In fact there is only one spelling of the word sentence and it means both a collection of words strung together and also a punishment handed down by the courts. The spelling "sentance" is incorrect in both cases. :mrgreen:
