Goofs

When the VAT man comes in, Arkwright says to him "Why don't you go through to the warehouse Mr O'Reilly and I'll come and see you later". Once inside, the VAT man puts his bag down and as Arkwright is coming through the door he says "Right, here we are Mr O'Connor, there we are". Possibly regarded as a Goof, although knowing Arkwright and his distaste for anything to do with VAT, he probably addressed the VAT man with different names on purpose, especially as he is of Indian extraction.
