How we laughed.

Why bother?
I take your point, bung your cash in Vanguard/Fidelity/M&G and play golf all day.

Only you're still a young man in business terms, remember Arthur Daly "the world is your lobster".

Seems to me an open goal thatís being continually missed by Labour which would play well with city workers and pro Brexit supporters alike.

Imagine being stuck here working for that horrid **** knuckle, on minimum wage in one of his horrid depression pits, serving toothless scumbags who voted against you even being in their *****y. Getting all pissed up and belligerent and scummy. Things would have to be ******* tough back home to sign up for that.

4% pre tax margins are not that uncommon - unless of occurs that is before the wage that the owners draw

In our case the roughly 7% margin was pre wages... and there were two of us.

Obviously there were other perks but reducing below this number seemed pointless.
