True - I believe that many roles I have gone up for in the past i have had no problem getting the role, it has sometimes been a case that I took roles that i was unqualified for which got me in to difficulties. This I'm sure was due to the fact I can chat for Britain and have no problem relating to any social strata of life, - King to pauper its a great life :)
