Afterall someone has to clean the toilets.

i think fistpate, what you are failing to realise, is that I don't think it is essential for everyones prospects to be raised. yer so the person in poundstretcher is working hard to scrape by, but do I think that they should get the best education/healthcare etc avaliable (more than essential to survive) - no.

So you believe in a class system, where one's future is decided by one's patronage?

As much as I resent Michael Moore's spew, I think he was right when he said the only way certain people will appreciate certain things is if something bad happens to them.

Yes but you don't know their circumstances! I could be working in Poundstretcher if for example I'm struck by a mental illness or an illness or a victim of rape or death. You don't know these people!

The irony is that most people who enjoy privelage nowdays and take views such as emzie's is that they need only to trace back their family two generations and can often find a miner or a mill worker or someone who really struggled to get by.

No i'll express my opinions in a method which suits me, if you fail to understand what I write gramatically wise, don't read it and I wont read yours, using that much used to remark to try and undermine my opinions is old. So get a new one.

and yes fishpaste, to an extent that is what I believe and also down to bloody hard work, luck and intellegance, and **** stuff has happened to me in my life, more than you know and that I would tell anyone and yet my opinions remain the same.

Funnily enough, the girl who works in my local poundstretcher was probably quite an able person before she was raped, something which made her mentally ill.

Yes, and I find it rather unsettling that there's nothing that can knock some people off their horse of illusion, really no concept of reality.

Trace it back further. Behind all privelage is graft. You might not lime to admit it or want to remember it, but it is true. At one time your family was the equivelant of the 'working in pound-stretcher' analogy we are using.

Most don't work in mundane jobs out of choice. You don't realise how much of a brat you sound.
