EVIDENCE

Submitted by Joe

“As promised, here are some photos of the room, and one of the sort of car I used to have. It should be noted that this is just one room in a larger flat and I do have a large kitchen and living room (with sofa) which I share peacefully with 2 others! Meanwhile Andrea lives alone in a dingy bedsit like a troll.

Also here’s a list of my large possessions if it’s relevant: Office chair, desk, bedside table (nightstand?), damaged TV, banjo, radiator. All these things except the chair and the banjo (and probably the radiator) are things I’d be happy to abandon or sell when I move.”

Submitted by Andrea

“I’ve attached a photo of my flat (prominently displaying sofa, of course).”
