    How the hell can £3.00 m2 be s**t. Any spread that's any good should be able to bang 3 , three and a bit gauges on a day ,and be off by 2.30pm.that equates to 100m2 a day = £ 1500, When the recession hit ,we were getting £ 1.60 m2 ,and still making a wage If some of you lot were getting £ 6.00...

    Some S&C

    These were same, full of damp. It's no wonder, gangs used to go in Saturday morning,start from bottom of gable wall ,work up with scratch coat when they got to top ,start dashing into scratch coat, if they were quick enough only bottom lift had two coats Not saying we did that. ( as if )
