Totally true. But my faint hope that there will be another series of @Line_of_duty is now even fainter. This sounds like a valedictory...unless...unless..
My deluded, latest theory/hope: this isn't the final series because (as brilliantly as last week put so many bits of the jigsaw together) there still seem too many loose ends to tie up in one episode (Ted + the Corbetts, Ted and Banks, Ted+ children's home)...And..
....if Osborne is H surely he needed more screen time to help us work out the full extent of his evil.
Well I was wrong, but what a neatly scripted final episode.

Feels like @Keir_Starmer getting excuses in early if Hartlepool goes Tory:
"I don’t think anyone realistically thought it would be possible to turn Labour round from worst general election result since 1935 to a position to win the next gen elxn within a period of one year"
He's been saying this a lot of course in recent weeks.
But citing Biden, he starts to sketch out 2024 vision: long-termism on economy; preventive health + linking public services like crime + housing; skills + education; more devolution; culture change to unity rather than division

Sad to see last of @Line_of_duty but I really liked the way @jed_mercurio linked incompetence and greed with institutional corruption. Add in corporate culture of restructuring and backside covering and it felt all too plausible.
A 'whydunnit' not just a 'whodunnit'.
A much more interesting and aptly unsettling note on which to end. Bravo @jed_mercurio @Vicky_McClure Adrian Dunbar, @martin_compston + all the team 👏 👏 👏

Cttee is told that the Sunday before he became PM, @BorisJohnson was in Cummings' living room asking if he could "come into Downing Street to try and help sort out the huge Brexit ...nightmare"
Cummings says his conditions for joining No.10 were:

- is PM 'deadly serious about actually getting Brexit done and avoiding second referendum'?.
- double the science budget
- support me and try to change how it all works given Whitehall is a 'disaster zone'
"I think there's a tendency to think of the science funding system like as people running the system, but that's not the reality. The reality is, the system runs the people."

See our latest update for extra remarks @DominicRaab made in the Q&A.
He added:"We don’t junk whole relationships because we’ve got issues – we have a conversation because we want to change the behaviour.

“And I think we’re in a much better position to do that if we’re willing to engage.
