The 80s Never Ended

Shiraz says his business is bigger than his builder's business- and he makes more money than his builder does-  and  he could easily get someone to break his builder's legs. As it is, he prefers to go through the Trading Standards Authority.  I tell him I think he's making the right decision. 

Andrew Marr was talking about the Thatcher years on TV last night- and of course we got footage- the usual footage- of Harry Enfield waving his wad and going "Loadsmoney!". "We are all Thatcher's children now," said Marr in conclusion- and ain't that the truth!

This morning I tracked down my Pet Shop Boys box set and played "Opportunities" at full volume. 

I've got the brains, you've got the looks
Let's make lots of money
You've got the brawn, I've got the brains
Let's make lots of money

I love that song. It makes me want to cry.
