Might have mentioned this before but . . I once saw a documentary on Las Vegas.
At one point some CEO or other took the reporter to his office window overlooking the city.
'See that?' he said.
'You don't build that on winners.'
All my life I've been looking forward to becoming middle class - just when my goal is in sight they put another tanner on the rates and I'm back where I started! There's no incentive to get on in this country.
