Paul excellent pics again mate, How can people call Scaffolders semi-skilled, when jobs like these are done. Any daft **** can lay one brick on top of the other, or if it doesnt fit saw a bit off as its only wood,in a joiners case.

The reason I've been putting some of the photos of my youth on here is I've been browsing through My Autobiography COMMON AS MUCK! And I came across these photo's which I've not seen in ages! And all I can say is.. I'm a fuckin good lookin ****! Haha! This was Dad and me in Blackpool, it cost 2 shillings to sit on a scooter and have yr photo taken!

Crest have done the bulk of the work as MP made such a bad job of it.

Was that your kid? lol

I'd rather do anything than move hop ups personally, 150 a day or not that is one of the worst jobs in scaffolding, very happy working up there, good rates too.
