Does he still charge by the question? Did he get paid with a broon envelope stuffed with cash?

That is a disgraceful allegation. I would not be suprised if the brown envelopes sued you for defamation of character. Sugesting that they are involved in such behaviour! :mrgreen:

The financial markets of London generate more in taxes (private and commercial) than the collective total of all UK taxi drivers since Kitchener was a lad...

With the way things are at the moment I would think that for every one of them that decided to go elsewhere, there would be at least 10 more waiting in the wings capable of taking up the slack for far less money.
When I was an apprentice I remember the chap who was teaching me saying "there is an easy way to check how indispensable you are. You jump into a swimming pool and when you get out you measure the hole that you have left in the water."

Maybe the replacements wouldn't bankrupt the whole fekking country and expect obscene bonuses for their incompetence?

I just like to fecking throw in that today is one troughing scumbag of a day, haha - for in Switzerland there is a vote which could easily be revolutionary, the "Anti-Abzock-Initiative" (anti-rip-off-initiative). People are called to vote upon, as there´s direct democracy in Ch, as we all know (which is as easily controlled and manipulated as representative democracy is, as we all know too) which could be the toughest company law world-wide, a breakthrough for all who hope for justice. There´ll be results tonight!

its not just the persons involved that make the big money, its the institutions based in the golden mile (Londons financial area) including the stock exchange, the London Stock Exchange is a major player with millions of (taxed) transactions each year, you cant remove 1000's of workers and hope the industry keeps running
