Sorry more rude words VAT (Value Added Tax, not Vodka and Tonic).

Q: Harold has to pay Frankie Barrow £15 for the insurance premium and 8% VAT, but Frankie settles for a quid. If we say that today Harold still pays £15, what would the amount of VAT be?


Nearly a week and no takers. The UK's VAT is 20%.

A: £3.

Q: How much was the fine that Harold had to pay for striking a Policeman?

Good thing he wasn't the same copper from “Any Old Iron?”, might've held a grudge :o.

Hint: the answer we’re looking for, Albert’s actual weight, won't be found in any episode.

Been nearly a week now so maybe somebody else would like a go.
Albert’s weight is a mere 7.5 stone (Ride Again).
David Kelly would’ve been a good candidate to play Albert, he was short and thin as a nail too :o.

If it's all that funny Nobby I’ll ask a hard question next time :wink:.
Harold often sarcastically referred to Albert’s size and weight.
But as far as I know, only in Ride Again was Albert’s actual weight revealed.
Your go if you like, or anyone else :o.

If nobody else is gonna ask a question, here’s a new one :)...
Harold can’t see Nureyev dance because Albert is watching a horror movie :shock:.
What’s the title of the movie?

Which title the Horror movie or the Nureyev thing on BBC 2? That was according to Albert Les Siffles which should be Les Siffleurs.

I'll have to have another shufti as The Knobs are on his side.

We’re looking for the title of the horror movie Albert is watching, not the ballet.
Hint: there was a Hammer film with a very similar title the previous year, 1971.

Been a week so somebody else should have a go :).
In Divided We Stand the horror movie Albert watches is “Blood of the Ripper”.
The 1971 Hammer picture was titled Hands of the Ripper.

Does your question refer to the two-stories-high Vernons sign on the side of 26a Oil Drum Lane?
In “Ride Again” much of the sign isn’t visible and I don’t gamble, so here’s a wild guess.....
The sum decreased from the first movie, in one year, by 80,000 quid, difficult not to notice that.
