A Conversation Piece

‘Correct me if I’m wrong Tod, but if the Chancellor removes the cap on bankers’ bonuses then banks put interest rates up, does that mean that bankers can then take bigger bonuses?’

‘I’m afraid it does Bob.’ Tod could feel the same old anger grip at his neck. He turned so his friend couldn’t see him grit his teeth. ‘I’m afraid it does Bob.’

‘And if that same Chancellor lowers taxes for the top 1% does that mean they’ll pay less tax on those bonuses?’

‘Bob, can we change the subject, please! I’m on remission remember!’
