    It does mate!

    I threw a 2 ringer out of my flat a few years ago (when i was still an AB)

    My Flat mate let her mate (AB WREN) use her room as a knocking shop...

    He refused to leave at first, but well changed his mind when I told him I was going to ring the reggies and have him run.... At that point I had no idea who he was lol...

    Good luck though mate... let me know how it goes...

    Oh and hows the new found non car ban freedom.. Soph told me she gave you a pass a few days ago.
