Were you working at the Verne, if you don't mind me asking? I used to work in Prison Service HQ and was involved with deporting lots of people from there on release. Jamaican drug mules were, I'd guess, well over half the people deported
Did literally a few days there, I was on the Weare for a few years, did mainly course time at Erlestoke, Dorchester, Exeter and Shaftesbury. More Mr Barraclough than Mr McKay. :wink:

Just a regular guy. A real man of the people. Don't be fooled into thinking he pulled himself up by his bootstraps.

Who is Rishi Sunak, the billionaire banker unexpectedly moving in to 11 Downing Street?

Rishi Sunak has long been tipped for political greatness - but his appointment as Chancellor still represents a startling rise to the top table for the 39-year-old former banker.
Married to the daughter of one of India’s richest men, he has been dubbed the “Maharaja of the Dales”, and is thought to be the richest person in the House of Commons.

Born in Southampton in 1980 to GP father Yashvir and pharmacist mother Usha, the eldest of three siblings went to the prestigious Winchester College boarding school, where he was head boy.

He went on study at Oxford, getting a first from Lincoln College in PPE – the university course favoured by ambitious future politicians, before getting an MBA from as a Fulbright Scholar at Stanford University in California.

Sunak started his career with investment bank Goldman Sachs before moving to the hedge fund sector, eventually setting up his up his own firm Theleme Partners in 2010 with an initial fund of $700million.

Is he actually an automaton? I was under the impression he was a spineless yes man as they all have to be in Cummings' construction of the cabinet.
