i'm not sure if this is the style of question that gets asked in a pub quiz, but i thought you might like to have some practice before october.

Question: is it true that the crime of murder, when applied to an estate agent, does not automatically attract the usual mandatory life sentence that would be applicable to all other human beings if it occured in the UK?

Wow - Ok I failed the test.
But what I lack in estate-agent-murder expertise I'll make up for in enthusiasm?!
Definitely up for this in Oct. Count me in.

So one of the new "Cluedo" board game solutions would be:

"Sophie, in the estate agents, with a large sledge hammer"

Yikes - I'll never be able to move house again! Never going to live this down. Go on Chustler - what's the answer?

Surely that's complete b*ll*cks...why are estate agents exempt under any law? They should all have been shot at birth anyway..

I don't think the estate agents are exempt for punishment upon commiting murder. Given the fact that as a matter of course an estate agent commits at least 10 counts of deceit per house sale and in addition manages to cause serious mental aggrevation no one can be held responsible for topping the estate agent. In any case it would be a case of temporary provoked insanity....

Maybe the question was badly phrased - but it was a genuine attempt to find out if I (me), would receive a life sentence for fatally damaging an estate agent or two in my quest to find temporary accomodation.

good to know that i'm not the only one who feels this way though!

Okey dokey the Roebuck says they will be running the quiz from October 2 (next Tues) but seeing as we are meeting for book group the following night what do people think about going on Oct 9?

Oct 9 works for me
