I don't and have never subscribed to the standard view that 'all footballers are thick' because many so obviously are not. But this one, however, seems to be as thick as shit. Nothing to do with 'the...

Well, first a small point: I have no idea whether or not any of the many 'household name' footballers whose names I know are married. I don't think every slapper hanging around wherever slappers hang...

Well, I think I once knew him, only he wasn't going by that name then.

He was using the alias Roy Cox and had a small handyman business in Delabole, North Cornwall. He has obviously since dyed his...

Well, as he is only 17 and still finding his way about, you have already taught him two valuable lessons:

1) When you market, spread your net as far and as wide as possible.

2) Don't be put off if...

One difficulty might be that this gentleman's name was quite often mentioned in connection with Elm Lodge in Barnes and with unsavoury parties thrown by the Krays where all kinds of things went on.

I tend to agree. Cliff is so vehement that he is completely innocent or bang to rights. What will, perhaps temporarily, muddy the waters was that exceptionally stupid 'deal' South Yorkshire police...

In theory yes, in practice no. At least some of them. You can't have it both ways.

Incidentally, I am always rather puzzled be descriptions of new items which state 'this is brand-new, and I just opened it to see whether it works/all the parts are there'.

This is straightforward...

On the face of it your point sounds reasonable, but doesn't bear scrutiny. Some items might well be more or less completely new, others most certainly aren't. The reason I look is because I am hoping...

Quite. And eBay aren't blameless as they allow this practice to go on. I did email them about it asking whether they were aware that some sellers were stretching matters just a bit too much, but...

Again, I agree with you on such items, but all too often when I read descriptions, there's an admission that an item was used for a very short period but is still in very good condition. That does...

Well, if you mean as in 'ex-demo' I agree. But as I say, when you look through the blurb, you often see 'only had it for a few weeks/a month'. That is simply wrong.

Well, that would rule out computers, phones, TVs and many other things. But if you buy on eBay, which I do, you don't really have that choice. The comeback, of course, is that you can invoke the...

' New (other)' items on eBay

Anyone else think it's not right that eBay should allow the category of 'New (other)'?

When you look at the item (I have been looking at the iPhone 5s), it turns out that in any other - more honest...

I can certainly see your point of view, I just find it almost impossible to take seriously. And 'pretentious' just because I seem to have a wider taste in music than you? Who's the big head now?
