    “This ain’t Economics
    This is Genocide”



    And in the death ..

    As the last few corpses lay rotting on the slimy thoroughfare

    The shutters lifted in inches in Tooting Broadway
    High on Hampton Hill
    And red, mutant greedy eyes from Croydon
    gaze down on The City

    No more big bonuses

    Fleas the size of rats
    sucked on rats the size of cats
    And ten thousand Contractoids

    split into small tribes
    coverting the highest of the sterile agencies

    Like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of IR35 Avenue
    Ripping and rewrapping their tax returns
    purple powerpoint presentations


    no more transporters to Solaris

    Any day now
    The Year of the Diamond Dogs


    “This ain’t Rock’n’Roll
    This is Genocide”

    He is right though - he and others got used to making big bucks in ever raising market, that did not require much brains - what required some brains and responsibility was staying away from these speculative bubbles.

    Yes the fools. Why didn't they spend years living in a Northern hovel writing some not so great software for a crowded market instead ?

    Indeed, why would they try something like this when they can just pay themselves huge bonuses when markets are raising and when their strategy falls apart they just screw out people who invested money and even those who did not want to get involved in this carp.

    Silly AtW, you could have lived in one of SASguru's former inner city hovels above a crack den in an "up and comming area". Knife/bullet proof vest included. Soon it will be 'Gentryfied' if you can stay alive that long.
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”
