    Yes I was wondering the same thing, but I guess Johnny was talking about a straightforward swap.

    I've spent years having to interpret chippies measurements -in fact my old site manager used to quote lengths in feet n inches and section in mms

    What worse is when he used to give me a length "it's 207 long"......which could be 207mm 2007mm 2070mm or something else

    And women - they use cms I don't know why.

    everything is measured in floor tiles where the wife is concerned. floor tiles in our kitchen 600mm .
    or if it’s smaller we measure in rulers (30cm).
    “how many rulers are the blinds on the landing?). “
    or
    “how many tiles are the curtains in the living room?”

    John: A person on average earnings can no longer get a mortgage to buy a house of average cost, like they could when Mottie bought his first house

    Benny: But people not on average earnings can buy homes that are not of average cost

    John: A person of average height is not seven foot tall.

    Benny: But some tall people are six foot six.

    My statement still stands, and is still true.

    Unless you're a carpenter you don't need to understand.
    We go by the tenth of mm, use inches nd figures that don't make sense to anyone but us.
    End result is perfection to everyone surprise.

    Don't tell Wobs; he reckons the world can easily cope with 12 billion - odd.

    A Roller is an "averagely-priced" car in your world then?
