  1. Let’s see … a corporate chief in the financial sector being wined and dined at Davos, and telling us that the problem with the world is that 6 quid an hour employees are just having it too damn good?

  2. Much better for your soul to be on benefits rather than being ‘exploited’ for a less than minimum wage, even, or especially, if you have no marketeable skills. If you allowed that they might learn something and eventually be worth the minimum wage.

    What the hell, they are only proles. Plenty more where they came from.

    Actually, it is because I care (I do, I swear I do) that I want the minimum wage done away with.

    Then all sorts of poorish types might be able to take on helpers and not do it on the ‘black’.
