Well done SkyMaster so what you have done here essentially is spammed up half a page by reposting the same 3 photographs twice on the same page only with the added words 'It seems that if the cladding has begun once again and they did quite a lot of work on it today.' Genius post !!

Why don't people think before posting and reposting the same photograph twice or three times on a single page ??

No I won't shut up - it was a constructive comment in attempt to improve the quality of this forum ( something you have failed to do in over 300 posts !).

Think about the people on dial up who don't have high speed broadband - it takes a few minutes to download a single page due to the continuous repeat posting of the same high quality photo's.
