I was surprised to get an email from London’s Royal Opera House warning me that the performance of Salome which I was due to see on Saturday was full of “nudity and violence”.

It’s a bit like that with the long-awaited news as to who will be the buyer of BASF’s styrenics operations. There was a hint at EPL last week that the announcement was imminent and that a top styrenics manager would not be making the move to the new owner.
And on Friday came an insider tip that a major announcement would be made by INEOS in the next few days.
The Blog is breathless with the suspense….
