that's the way to buy stuff .... the power of the folding beer voucher reigns supreme ..... for now anyway, 'til they manage to do away with 'em.

Apparently there's a region in one of the Scandy countries where they've 'abolished' cash .... cards, etc., only ... it's chaos when the system fails

that'd be some sort of retrograde step, eh !!?

a lot of governments are desperate to stamp out the cash/black economies !
UK Gov is frantically trying to clobber ebay users ... god knows how they'd ever pull that one off though

Aren't portable buildings outside the planning system? So get an old lorry trailer with wheels on it and just use that?

The trouble in this country now is that they want to hold the little man back from moving forward, frustrates the crap out of me, I agree that there needs to be some kind of regulation but common sense from the councils need to prevail, but finding that from them is like finding rocking horse shit!!
