I've always liked this 1855 Ford Madox Brown painting, The Last of England.
& I've always liked that passage in one of Douglas Adam's novels where they construct a spaceship to take all the hairdressers, PR people, stylists and so on off planet to allow everyone else to get on with the real business of life.
& now , it seems, there is the prospect of a third thing I like:
" Half of British bankers would consider leaving the country if a cap were put on their cash bonuses, a survey showed on Friday.
The poll by jobs website eFinancialCareers.com found that 49 percent of British-based bankers would consider voting with their feet such a limit to their income were introduced. That figure rose to 71 percent among financiers with six to ten years experience."
