    Is it worth leaftleting or canvasing these areas or people do not care whether their windows are clean on council estates?

    Spot on boar. These are the people that stop in the street to pay you rather than try and avoid you.

    Probably a third of our work is on council estates, like everywhere you got to sort the wheat from the chaff as they say.

    In Nottingham I learned a new expression 'The bread and lard crowd' These are the people that are so busy having to live in the big house with the big car and all the latest designer **** that all they are having for dinner is bread and lard as they can't afford a decent food.

    The moral being just cause it's a big private house it doesn't make the people inside any better payers.
