I don't know much about the backgrounds of anybody here, so I am not trying to provoke anybody in particular, but I have to say.....

Your dealings with Dibble must have been different to mine over the years. And judging by the news throughout 2014, the law enforcement authorities in the UK have problems with conduct and honesty at every level.

I repeat that I am surprised that someone who spent their career in law enforcement could adopt such a stance. My 'antecedents' - not the correct choice of word in this context, btw, I presume you mean to say 'previous employment' - involved trying to instil into young people decent values such as honesty, a task that often seemed fruitless. But if we all give up and fall back on cynicism, opportunism and downright greed, we cannot complain about the kind of society we live in.


I found it hard to make sense of your post but I would say this: if one is going to brandish the law and knowledge of it like a badge, surely one should show respect and obey it?

Tax evasion, fiddling the benefit system, all are crimes. The former does not rank higher than the latter either. Both are theft from the public purse.

Sorry. Please excuse me for making it so difficult for you to understand my posts, but my lack of education and ability to string a few coherent sentences together, is down entirely to the rubbish teachers I had to tolerate. I hope over the intervening years that teachers now try a little harder to do a professional job.

I will continue to try and overcome that poor start they inflicted on me. and will be duly grateful for all the corrections you make to my posts. Thank you so much Miss.

One of the carpinterias de aluminio in the village will no longer do any work for us because we asked for a receipt (it was for about 1100€) - his loss because we now want four windows changed from wooden to uPVC, so the business goes to one who is above board.

To go off topic a little, when I had my energy certificate done, I was told by the inspector that my wooden windows would help the rating as they are much more thermally efficient than aluminium ones.

They are also much more draughty, thereby negating any improvement in insulation value.
