There's more money in Northern Soul than Northern Rock
I know things are (of course) more complex, but rather than the BBC news showing, without comment from the economics editor, NR shareholders whining about the possibility of nationalisation he should be saying, 'OK, what do you think a share is? The clue is in the name you cretins. if you own a share of something worthless that share is itself worthless. Now take your over-developed sense of entitlement and piss off'.
Maybe this could be one of the lessons for 'On The Move - The Next Generation'.
Which reminds me, if our education system used to be so good and has declined so much, why did the BBC have to have basic literacy lessons at tea time on Sundays? Answer of course, good as always means good from the perspective of the entitled middle class.
