(not satire – it’s the UK today!)
An 11-year-old boy in Shepton Mallet – found guilty on numerous charges including violence, arson, criminal damage, theft, handing stolen goods, threatening behaviour and exposing himself in public – has told a magistrates court that he wants to be a bank manager when he grows up:
I suspect there may have been a time – admittedly a long, long time ago – when being a banker may have been a good role model for a young person.
Now it seems bankers are only role models for thieves, hooligans and criminals.
Which – considering bankers have persistently stolen, lied and abused people for decades – is not, I suppose, all that surprising.
Please feel free to comment. And share.
