I am a stockbroker. Many of my clients are plumbers and builders. Many "working class" (and proudly so) people earn far more than the "professionals" who serve them. Those who lack the wit to buy their own tools, van and hire a mate, and instead spend their wages in the pub or the bookies, have only themselves to blame. Before Thatcher, someone like me would only have seen a plumber when a pipe burst. Now, they're my clients.
