Hmmmmmmm, anyway, I decided to ask a plumber friend if he would do it for me as 'a foreigner' (cash on completion, no pesky VAT or invoices.) It suddenly came to me, where does the term 'a foreigner' come from? Is it common in other countries? Is it a regional UK thing?
I'm a Brit and I live in the north of england (if that makes any differance)
