This bloody world has gone mad. H&S is dam crazy.
Difference a vent? or is your jerry can vented?

Does NOT apply to Derv as it is not a "spirit" but the numpty behind the counter is unlikely to know that either...

I do. I recently converted the roofspace of my shed into a 7x8m boating operations centre c/w shelving/workbench/wifi/heating/porthole window. I can comfortably live in it...

...I know this because Missus willk says if I'm good, she'll let me back into the house next Tuesday.

This is the same reason why I have a cabin rib And my wife has a Jiggle Syphon without the metal strip

Every one I've seen being used hasn't had one Although I'm glad the Halfords one has one, I think its a Laser branded one?

Trust me, I am not worried......!

I just posed a question, after quickly glancing through the info posted on here. I wouldn't even dream of storing any kind of highly flammable liquid in the house. You would not believe some of the stupid and idiotic things that I have seen or heard of, in my line of work.
I also, along with most people in todays society, come across things where H&S has gone completely pear shaped and causes more harm than good.

It really makes my teeth itch, when you read of some things, just like the 'tie wrap' story above.....!

Unfortunately, common sense, does not come as standard anymore...
