I hope we can all identify with Tom Hamilton’s lack of pity for young Emily.
Are pressure groups and charities an essential part of a modern democracy?
Probably. But they are also partly a job creation scheme for the kind of people who are unable to dirty their hands with a proper job.
Poor Emily appears to have the career-equivalent of the ‘Not In My Name!’ personal crisis. At least she will be able to strike a blow against Mammon by desk-skiving until she gets the job she deserves.
(Apologies to regular visitors. I know I’ve gone on about this a fair bit already)
