Green’s testimony to the parliamentary inquiry into the collapse of British Home Stores was a crude, depressing but revealing insight into the psychology and workings of the upper reaches of British society.
There’s no doubt that Green is rich but upper reaches of British society? Didn’t Owen write a book on class? Yes, obviously, Britain is very much better than it used to be but come along laddie, the Jewboy in the schmutter trade might become exceedingly rich but he’s simply not going to become upper class, that’s not how it works. Assuming the fortune stays intact his grandchildren will be and that is the way that it does work.
