    I'll make an effort to post a bit more. Just thought I'd comment on this since apparently HMT gets a good giggle out of unnerving contractors every Autumn, coincidentally just after Halloween.

    Amen. :D

    Who knows, maybe he'll form his own limited company, divert all his income into it and ***** off whilst some other monkey deals with the fallout of his and May's ineptitude.

    Yup! I'd say 2020 at this point. The Consultation and subsequent discussion will run into the 2018 Budget in all likelihood; the private sector is substantially more complex, cost-sensitive and...

    Wasn't hugely impressed by the younger leads, and the renegade storm trooper felt pretty arbitrary, but I enjoyed Kylo Ren and his scenes. I guess like Anakin, he has plenty of time to become ugly.
