    The Future's Brighter in Orange Order....... ?

    "Orange has been getting less profitable of late, so with Alexander at the helm we can expect some form of cost cutting, or squeezing more revenue from existing assets"

    You could also expect a Migration of Assets to its Platform Structured Intelligence Vehicle ...... CyberSpace Vessel. ........ Flagship Galactica?

    Me: Hello Orange, esteemed mobile contract provider for the last 8 years.

    Orange: Hi there, loyal and oh-so lucrative customer.

    Me: Virgin have offered me a great deal.

    Orange: Yes, it's very good isn't it, much better than ours.

    Me: PAC code please. Bye bye.
