On the news this morning it mentioned the fact that HMRC wonít take credit card payments any more (and I donít think the DVLA will either) thus a cheque book is now a necessity again (EU legislation has made charging for using a credit card illegal - thatís how skinflint the British government is!).

I think the no credit cards thing is something to do with not putting tax payments on credit rather than anything to do with the fees.  I don't know the full reasoning behind it, but basically you have to pay your taxes immediately, rather than the bank paying them and you potentially defaulting on the credit card payments.

The line Cold news for me, for I had hope of France (spoken by the Duke of York) occurs in two locations in Henry VI part 1. Does your simian scholar have any opinion which is correct? The text is obviously corrupt.

Maybe he's trying to introduce it as his catchphrase? A fifteenth century version of Shut that door! or Stupid boy! maybe?

They ('we' 11 years ago) don't want people taking on high interest debt to pay tax.  When I was a Collector we we weren't just debt collectors - our aim was to get you on a stable footing so you could continue to earn, we didn't go for a quick hit.  The best way to treat me was to be honest and co-operative. There was a grey area of what you would offer, what I would take, and the line I couldn't cross. The more honest and co-operative (and that means keeping to promises) you were, the bigger the grey area.

I've got them here to do, just not had chance yet.  I've got the Ancient Greek sculpts and some more WWII painted vehicles to photo as well.

I assume the mounted spearman is the genitor. I canít quite tell whether he has a shield or not.
