    Ignore this lot Deane - it's a serious issue.

    Clearly it wasn't wrapped to an Ideal Standard...

    I'd raise it immediately with ebay, and tell your seller that he can't beat the cistern.

    Do you realise the average life of a WC is 100 years, so not really an antique. Many many houses with an outside privy will have a crapper older than 100 years :D

    I'll probably get panned for saying this, but I think I would have been incistern that he wrapped the crapper a bit better.

    You'll have to take the plunger and tell the seller the crap news, that sending the Doulton and then boltin is just taking the p1ss.

    You're not flush now because of this, and have been driven round the bend, meanwhile he just washers his hands of the hole affair. Someone's trying to pull your chain mate, or perhaps pushing your buttons? What a plonker.

    So, my old china, not flushed with success then eh? Don't go down in the dumps let your whole life go down the pan, we must get to the seat of the problem before it drives you potty and never forget - the job isn't over 'til the paperwork is done.

    We could make a film about his whole escapade.

    We can call it the Armitage Shanks redemption.
