    Putting your rudeness to the side, if you need to know what a prospective job entails you ask the person that comes to the house to quote what the options are and how they plan to tackle it.

    Only one cigarette is needed to give you cancer. This is an example of the panic/ignorance I talked about. There are more asbestos fibres in the air around us than the vast majority of people realise, along with other carcinogens, fumes, bacteria, virus etc, virtually every tradesman over the age of twenty has come into contact with asbestos fibres unless they’ve done nothing in their working life, unless you’re stupidly taking lungfuls of dust in a day, you’re no more probable to contract something nasty than any other member of the population.

    Actually he was an Textured Ceiling Specialist but took up plastering when Back to Smooth became fashionable.

    Been some while now since I studied Q-Methodology from what I remember it is a research method used in psychology and social sciences to study peoples "subjectivity"- that is, their viewpoint. "Q" was developed by William (Bill) Stephenson.

    Why is it that 2020 has started with a flurry of new members being rude to those established members trying to help them?

    Have to be a little careful now after last years tragic cull of well established forum colleagues.

    And note the third bullet under notification

    notice is required before the work starts - there is no minimum notice period

    I would presume that as that requirement has not been met the HSE may consider taking enforcement action
