This Is the Modern World (2)
Following on from the article I composed on Monday, after the tragic events in Las Vegas and also the fact the airline I`ve been associated with for 40-years crashed into liquidation, something else has caught my attention and made me vent my spleen.
After waving goodbye to several good friends who were made redundant on Monday, many who know that their futures were, until they could find alternative employment, looking bleak, it became obvious that the future wasn`t looking bright for them, that money would be tight and they`d have no money coming in until the government redundancy scheme pays out in 3 to 12 weeks.
And then I surf the internet and find that the Tottenham Hotspur player, Dele Alli, had his barber flown out to Los Angeles to cut his hair.
Staggering and an indication of just how rich the modern players are in this game we all love but a game that has, in my opinion, moved so far away from the working class it`s untrue.
But this is, I`m afraid, the modern world!
