Good news. It seems Stoke-on-Trent are advertising for a new Chief Executive who plays role-playing fantasy videogames. Oblivion, specifically…

“The good news is… we’re 20 minutes from Oblivion”.

I guess an ability to immerse oneself in gory fantasy-worlds will provide a certain advantage when dealing with the public-sector in this city. Although on second-thoughts, I think they’re actually talking about the Obivion theme-park ride at Alton Towers… heh.
