The Eve Of Destruction

Bosses at the FTSE 100 companies saw their pay rise by 49% last year.

They know it's unpopular, they know it's antisocial, but they just can't help themselves. It's sad, really. They're addicts.

This can't go on, can it- the very rich getting very much richer as everybody else gets poorer? 

I know it sounds melodramatic- and I've been trying to avoid saying it for that reason- but I think we're living in pre-revolutionary times.
