What is this "closet tax" you mention Mike? - I'm far from being an expert
on our tax laws, but I don't recall anyone from the Inland Revenue coming
round to count the number of cupboards in my house. Reminds me of an old
tax here based on the number of windows a house had - which inevitably led
to a large number of windows being bricked up. If there is a "closet tax",
I'm sticking a chair in each of them and calling them small lounges :)

Couldn't agree more.
