    A lot of people refer to vans as Transits and a reporter wouldn't want to put he lives in his 'Merc' as it gives the wrong impression.

    He's going out on a night with his mates even though he says he can't drink after 7.00 pm as he's not got a toilet ... both can't be true ... I bet he doesn't want to admit to 'watering' the local vegetation though!

    He's gonna save some money but won't save anything like £24k as he has to buy his meals out (no cooking/food storage facilities that I can see).

    I can't fault the guy for doing it but I think I wouldn't have wanted to have it splashed all over the tabloids etc as it could make him a bit of a target for idiots. The other problems are that his insurance will probably be invalid too and also he won't be paying Council Tax ... yet!

    Why does he have to have a haircut, not everyone likes to, he is free to do what he wants not what you whant.

    toilet facilities? or does he wait to get to work for that as well?
    Why would he want to publicise this, do you think hes hoping someone out there will feel sorry for him and take him in for free?

    Why knock him? Long hair or not, he's in a job and clean. Why pay inflated rent in the City? If he's happy, can't see him doing wrong. :emo:

    Oi some folk like long hair.
    I think some plonker says to me nearly everyday when are you getting a haircut.
    They are usually bald or receding.... I think it's envy :p
