    thunderbirds were made in Britain, team america is more appropriate, or south park, 2 1/2 men is a personal favourite of the mailman

    dont let them in bo$$,they cant do shit if you open the door for them.
    there is only a few characters in 2 1/2 men though,we would look like the 3 stooges lol
    barney from "how i met your mother" rocks,but again theres not many core characters in that either

    i think calling the police might help them gain entry as they will have a warrant,
    but just don't open the door.not even a nudge..
    if they can get even a foothold then they are within there rights to push the rest of the way,
    isnt one of the guys here in uk club a bailiff or something?
    im sure they could pm you the ins and outs of your rights,failing that call citizens advice bureau.

    good luck fella!

    no, someone here (boss or freedom?) is one of those people who takes your car away from you if you don't pay the finance/parking fine

    Luckily they haven't come yet, the thing is their letter has the name of the Landlord not ours....

    I have read only the HMRC people have rights to break in, not these assholes

    if you had a mobo that didnt post,but worked up til the last time you used it,would you consider buying then returning memory from somewhere like maplin,just to be sure your cpu isnt nackered?

    if its maplin then yes, the idiots have caused me so many problems over the years, be warned if its maplins, they will do every single thing possible to prevent you from returning the product

    mm they have caused me a bit of grief with orders and general idiocy so i tend not to shop there unless its for something like caps/resistors and i dont have patience to wait on rs or whatever.

    i was going to send the mrs in there to pick up a stick of ddr2 then return it saying she needed ddr3,i am pretty sure she would get away with it if i wiped the pads so they didnt show the scrapes you get inserting ram.

    Hey we could just go random characters, i was thinking of going Dick Van Dyke from Diagnosis Murder! OR Big Foot from Harry and the Hendersons! Anyone know if Mailman still has a Chewie avvy?

    Yea, I'm the bailify person lol well, I'm just a "Collections Agent".
    Bo$$, the best way out of it is to record the whole thing as you said, and to just lean out the window and tell them "I've paid my Council Tax but my Landlord hasn't". Then give them your landlord's name and address and any contact details you have for him. That will have covered your arse if you have any future problems with them. Trust me, if you give the bailif's that info, they're likely to just follow the cash and move on.

    If the Police get a warrant, just hope that it's in your landlord's name. A warrant is invalid if the wrong person/tenants name is on the paper. In fact, nearly all Police warrants are invalid if there's just a spelling mistake in the name/address. Also, a warrant has to be signed to be valid. If there isn't a hand-written signature on the warrant, it's invalid.

    Let us know how it goes man. And don't relax at 5 o'clock, bailifs will work evenings if they have to, as they're on commission.

    "LOOK MY LIEGE CAMELOT" *dun dun dun dun "We are knights of the round table we dance whenever we're able... we dine well here in Camelot we eat ham and jam and spam a lot!!! I HAVE TO PUSH THE PRAM A LOT..." "On second thoughts, let's not go there. Tis' a silly place."

    "The peoples front of Judea? FUCK OFF!"

    "I want you to chop down a tree with a HERRING"

    YES! Monty Python is the best idea so far, there arnt many epic American sitcoms or movies we could rip avatars from.
