I worked on the 14th floor of a building in Moorgate - we used to draw straws for who would go fetch lunch if the power was off........

Granted he married in to the 2000 million, but if thats the kind of money Sir David is talking about, then thats ok with me! Dont mind riki to be fair, probably the next pm when boris disappears to California, but you only have to drive around Kensington and Chelsea to see how much some people have, and others don"t have a pot to pizz in, obviously only the stinking rich, not us workers! Yeah, i remember the 70"s, had a march through Croydon, thousands, what do we want? The right to work! when do we want it? NOW! The way this countrys heading, we better learn the words!

Strange how shortly after we had a CON government under Thatcher. Do you really want a socialist government like callaghans. Gave in to the unions and mags sorted that out. Strangely attenborough's bank account expanded massively in the 80s. Bit ironic hes now bleating about sharing it out!

I just see that something has to give mate, the working man is just borrowing to survive, taxi drivers are anyway, and that was before covid! Going to work just to pay for your tools doesn"t make sense, 7 days a week for a couple of hundred pounds profit , and paying around 5% on every card fare to the boys in the city- who agreed to that? I can see change is coming under these socialist CONS, but its in the future that we are going to have to pay it back, and im not sure how!.We are never going to get a socialist gov in the uk, but a keir/boris , take your pick, but the whole country is moaning and jobs are disappearing faster than dougie at an offer of a pound note!

He's obviously a nice man....if too hippy for my taste. I think he's guilty of encouraging groups like extinction rebellion and he's one of the poster boys for bourgeoisie bolsheviks....which is quite possibly the most ridiculous political ideology in history.

The working man has always borrowed to survive.
That's why they work. Mortgage, credit cards,never never on a car or sofa etc. The unfairness is actually that non working man is better off than working man.that is where there is another wealth gap. Lazy feckless workshy liars never having to worry about the next bill as they just slap it on the counter. Job done. To coin a phrase. Million and billionaires havent taken from me as I would still pay the same tax and NI no matter. The pre sentence people are doing that.
Present and recent unemployed arnt part of my rant.
It's the long term and encompasses women and others too just to stay PC.

I ment borrowing to go to work mate, not borrowing to live. If you are paying 350 a week to rent an electric taxi for example, or buying one for 70k, then paying back the bank, and 5% on every card job, taxi licence, dbs check, doctors check at 140, taxi meter rental, mot, insurance and road tax, (if you aren"t renting obvs), maintainance and normal repairs, then any tax at end of year and accountant, you have to work every day or 16 hours a day over 6 days to make a couple of hundred pounds a week, it just doesn"t add up! So thats just an example, borrowing to go to work, you would be better earning a couple over a few days gardening at 25 a pop local.

Job was still useless mate, you were still working long hours 7 days to make it pay, and probably didn"t so it didn"t pay, you can only do 7 days for so long before wondering what its all about, covid has just put the final nail in the games coffin. I know lots of people have to shell out, like a plumber working for himself needs a van, and tools, but if you buy a new van you can look after it till it falls apart in 20 years, with a 70k taxi they are scrapping it in 14 years, going down to 10 every year, its a lot of dough to shell out for something they wont let you use in 10 years! Even train fares if you get a crap job in the city(cleaning or something other than banking obvs), once you take fares out theres not a lot left, you really need to work local if poss in a crap job.

I wonder if Sir DA still keeps in touch with that nice Gorilla family he met in the late 1970's ?
