    So sure that’s a bit of a pisstake my feeling is to put in an offer to secure the house and then to bring the price down once in exclusivity

    Obviously your issue there is you don't really have exclusivity. If you try and do that without good reason then they may just tell you to piss off and go back to the other buyer. The market isn't moving that quick, there's a pretty good chance that the other will still be looking.

    I think in terms of the knife crime there isn't much he can do. There's some rejigging of police priorities but it's a bigger issue than what he can address.

    I think part of the trouble is there's very little you can point to as successful ideas that he's implemented. Whether or not he's struggling with a biased press, his PR team aren't doing a good job or he just hasn't done anything I'm not sure but I'm struggling to think of a handful of things that he's achieved since he came in.

    As such, the knife crime tends to get bundled in with the general perception of him as ineffective.

    Here?

    (Although I believe it's only vegetarian)

    Green Lanes is probably a good bet though.

    I found they varied a lot. In particular if your neighbours employ a third party surveyor they know they can take the piss as you'll be paying for it, not them, and it's really difficult to contest the excessive fees.

    The ones I experienced varied between about £450 and £1,100 (inc VAT).

    Most of them. I've got a few of the TP link ones and a few others which all work fine. You often have to install their app to initially set it up though.

    I was screaming at Pieters to take him out.

    Our defending was shocking today. Too many injuries and not enough strength in depth.

    Can see why Spurs are conceding so many. We had three great chances in the first half. 3-3 would have been a reasonable half time score based on chances but some shocking finishing didn't help when paired with shit defending.

    Yes, Task Scheduler. It's surprisingly powerful with a lot of options. I also sometimes use AutoIt depending on what I want the schedule to do (for instance I have a program that should be running 24/7 but occasionally crashes, Autoit checks that the program is running each hour and, if it's not, starts it up again).

    The output from tree turned out to be a bit unwieldy. Turns out the best solution was dir with a few extra options.

    As you say, how long is a piece of string.

    My view is that if it's something that you could have picked up from the viewings or would expect from a property of that age/state of repair then a post-offer reduction is a bit cheeky. If it it could only be picked up by surveyor/expert and is unexpected then fair enough, try for a reduction.

    People can be strange though, they've agreed a fee and aren't budging or maybe they have a bottom line figure for their next purchase and won't go lower. It's tough to make a call, you can probably push for lower but you may not get it.
