    £20, but is is likely to cost the council tax payers in your area over £200 to remove it after he fly tips it.

    A score is twenty - it's not slang, or if it is it's very old slang. In the bible "the days of our years are three score years and ten" refers to people living to seventy.
    Not even wrong

    Twenty - or it used to be when I went to school.

    As in 'fourscore years and ten' = 70, a lifetime in Bible terms.

    Doesn't anyone learn these things any more?

    Four score years and ten was 90 when I went to school.
    I used to be indecisive but now I am not sure.

    Back of the class for margaretclare. Four score = 4 x 20 = 80

    80 +10 = 90.

    Ooh yes, freecycle it as bricks for hardcore! Then he can pick it up and you can enjoy your score yourself!

    We cleared someones garden of topsoil using my micra last summer. Poor thing nearly didn't make it home both times. I love my micra

    My local 'man with a trailer' asks for score and ten. As a highly regarded member of the community I do hope he uses the tip...
