It has been said some mid-ranking bankers have been struggling to keep up their standard of living on salaries as high as £500,000-a-year, and are quite understandably pissed off! Heaven knows how the rest of us manage to survive then on a national average annual income of £26,000? Perhaps casino bankers should finally learn to cut their cloth according to their needs? Meanwhile, mid to high-ranking City folk are spending £50,000 a weekend on prostitutes, gambling, and cocaine. The only thing that surprises me is, how it can take them so long to spend the money!
