Fix the interviewer with a hard, unblinking stare. Say nothing for several seconds, and then without unclenching your jaw, say "I like reading, and walks in the countryside."

If they ask any questions about your favourite authors or nearby villages, repeat the phrase, "I like reading, and walks in the countryside."

just had my (telephone) interview.

they (more-or-less) asked

"are you a nonce or murderer"

and then i said "no"

and then they said

"when can you start"

That’s a very shrewd move on there part, as if you become a nonce and/or murderer after you start working there they can fire you for lying.

i'm in the palm of their hand during this intermediary stage, for sure.

considering calling them back and reeling off my preprepared facts about my keen eye for detail just to be on the safe side.

If you're a nonce and a murderer, how are you supposed to answer that question?

I hope you said "Well, I can start murdering right away but I might need some training for the noncing."

Is this job at Hampshire Bakery?

I can see why they are looking for some clarification re: nonce/murderer as they've been stung on that before.
