Ha Ha really? but he has no name, no website, no recommendations...there are plenty of reputable tradies mentioned on this forum who are tried and trusted by SE1-ers

Hmmm, not wishing to be unduly suspicious but this was johnbrox85's first post and his/her grasp of English seems a little shaky. As Boroughpaul says, no website, no name ....

Maybe we should have an SE1 tried and trusted traders list.....there are lots of great recommendations of local tradesmen on here....

Now now, Sputhwarksimon, it seems like perfectly usual south London idiom to me, innit.

Marcusm if he had written:

I wouldn't have a problem with it, and that would be more sarf London.

There is a bigger issue here of unsubstantiated and fabricated recommendations. I'm sure it is not just me who has used this site to verify whether or not a tradesman is any good. Unfortunately the internet allows many unscrupulous tradesman to manipulate online fora for their own gain, sites like ratedpeople etc are far too easy to hijack. I have learnt this through bitter experience.
