    About time someone got the name changed- sounds more like a home for those with a new venereal disease. classis name given by an outsider- here for a couple of years then taxfree gratuity in the bank, box ticked and away to never need to think about Falklands again.

    note final decision on appointment due after december exco meeting. milestones: allowing time for mobilization in the event exco approves contract looks like work will not start on site until 2019/20. first residents move in on 2 January 2024. but all this could be delayed by a further 2 years as ramboll uk ltd will need to first advise exco on resource and capacity issues and a new contractors camp like the old lookout lodge or snoozebox will need to be built to accommodate the workers. plenty of time for ian and other youngsters to become vulnerable and qualify for residency!
