Times are Hard



Once upon a time your city worker would be waving his wadge of multiple sterling notes. Nowadays, it seems all that can be afforded is a tenner.

To quote - "City workers leaned out of windows and waved £10 notes at demonstrators on the streets below, who responded with jeers and shouts."

While I'm on the subject, here's a positive note from the same article -

Sky News security expert Crispin Black said he was very impressed with the way police had defused the situation by refusing to rise to provocation.

"I think the police have been very skilled," he said.

"The way they moved people away from the RBS branch was very clever, and the way the temperature has cooled down there is testament to their skill."

I will be keeping tabs on the happenings down south.

To my colleagues in the Smoke, stay safe and wear a hard hat!

Thanks for that one Noddy - what a hoot from the past! Living proof that the Anglo Saxon male of the species really was at Agincourt, Harfleur, El Alamein etc etc (How else could we have beaten the bastards?)

It's nice to know people were watching.

Very rare to get compliments from the media as well, so I'm happy.

Knackered, mind.

Area, as we both know, behind every media compliment there waits a kick in the bollocks!
