    Martin Tyler mentioning Real Madrid beating City every other breath during the Newcastle match and then claiming how City’s performance stopped him even talking about Madrid, was top trolling.

    Wow. That was astonishing.

    Am I the person walking away with money in their pocket or am I dead in this scenario?

    I thought I’d reached a point where it’s a toss up between an agonising and undignified death from mesothelioma or a sudden ceiling collapse causing an untimely death by suffocation.

    So far all the opinions are from people who are plasterers, they just happen to disagree with each other.

    Thanks for the links. Not really too fussed about having it tested if it can just be skimmed over. It’s a very small space - 2.5m x 2.5m - so the total job cost is only around £200.

    It does seems to be quite a contentious issue though. I’ve had two more quotes from other plasterers - one who says he doesn’t scrape high points because of the asbestos risk, he normally does 3 coats instead. The other though, similar to @Nef thinking above, says he’s done thousands of artex ceilings and adamant that there’s no risk, quote “there’s only 0.08 asbestos in them ceilings”. This fella says the problem with not scraping the high points is the more layers of plaster required to cover puts a lot of weight on the ceiling.

    So it’s 2-1 to the scrapers right now and to be honest I have no idea who’s right.

    Thanks for the advice all. Will get some quotes elsewhere and choose the option least likely to cause harm.

    Not really DIY because I’m going to pay someone else to do it…but an artex question.

    Have a swirly ceiling in the kitchen and had a plasterer come round to give a quote yesterday and he said that the artex is too deep, 3/3.5mm in places, to cover with PVA and then skim plaster over. So he said he’d need to chip off the deeper parts first.

    For some reason I had a mind blank and forgot until today about the whole asbestos artex issue. I would think the best approach is to cover without disturbing/breaking it up. Plasterboard then PVA and plaster? Not sure I fancy someone chipping potential asbestos all over the kitchen.

    Any experience with this here or thoughts?

    There’s plenty of things I’ve never directly experienced but I can comprehend they still happened.

    Slap truthers is what your people are being called on twitter 😉

    If you watch the unedited clip it’s glaringly clear that is was not staged.

    Amazes me that we’re so deep in post truth, that literally every event has a group of people who think said event is fake.
