Not sure how many guardian readers in Chelsea eke out a living by punting scrap metal?

I reckon former student now working in a warehouse or call centre is more like it.

Good call on Chuka, but his character in the film wasn't suggesting a milder Death Star as a realistic solution to galactic problems, so not entirely convinced.
