  • Re: "Konsta ... 'll have a clear view on which of the provincial offices should close.". I thought he lived closer to Guildford not Oxford.

  • Is that what Konsta does in the office (watch "Apocalypse Now" with the sound turned down)?

  • As Kilgore put it, you either surf or you fight. Time that the BLG guys came back with a rearguard action. Either that or get some board action - but rumour has it Barlow don't surf.

  • This is what they've all been waiting for. The question is which if the losers will fracture off. Surely the Chairman will have a preferred successor...

  • Burns and Hasson would have to move on if Konsta wins as he is sure to do: their position would be untenable. Maybe Jabba can find a job for them in his new organisation? More realistically Burns would go to a US firm and Hasson go back to being a bean counter for a small firm.

  • The Apocaplyse Now analogy is superb. Payton is Col. Kurtz and Konsta is Captain Willard! I love the smell of napalm in the morning - smells like ... victory

  • The AN analogies are superb. I particularly like the reference to the former Far East offices of BLG and surfing.

  • My money is on MP going to open a Cambodian office. 'Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service ...'

  • There's no one in legacy BLG with international experience to take Clydes to the next level: their skills are in destroying not in creating.
