Well.......his pay is equal to roughly 1300 nurses. However, his value to society and his productivity to the UK is SFA. Same as any overpaid footballer, tennis player, F1 driver, golfer....etc...etc. These are not real jobs.


You say that, but these people give the masses a lot of pleasure and entertainment, so to say that their value to society is SFA isn't right IMO.  :)

Ninety minutes once a week (if playing well) ;)

'Value to society' is based on how the country will cope if certain elements are removed. Take away doctors, nurses, teachers, the police. etc...etc... and society will implode. Take away footballers and F1 drivers and the country will function just fine. :)

Its called market forces. A very imperfect system, but the alternative is much much worse.

Is this another way of saying he is 'worth every penny'?

He must be worth every penny to his team. He isn't worth tuppence to me, as I have no interest in football.
And thatís fair enough, Albs. You donít subscribe to a sports channel or buy shirts so he costs you nowt.
Opti doesnít subscribe, either, but youíd think the whole fee was coming out of his pocket. ;D

When Russia invades who will the country need most? Doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, the army, the navy.............or a little lad who kicks a ball around for a ridiculous amount of money. :)

I find the earnings of Premier League players utterly obscene, however the money must come from somewhere, and obviously somehwere down the line there must be some kind of value that can be turned into the cash for this to happen. I don't subscribe to any sports channels, don't go to matches, don't buy the merchandise or whatever, but enough people do do these things for the money to be there.

I have a much bigger problem with BBC salaries  >:(  but that's a slightly diferrent issue as a TV licence is pretty much compulsory, public money. I just don't see how any TV presenter can be worth £400 K or more a year

They can't.

Just a few days pay for the new boy at Man U though. :(

Manchester United have now got their latest player,reportedly they're paying him £14m a year after taxes :o That's got to be totally insane,no-one and I mean no-one is worth paying that much!The player says it's not about the money but that he's always wanted to play for them,so why didn't they offer him £300 a week and call it done? ::)
Another way of looking at it: Heís reputedly on £500,000 a week, making £26,000,000 a year, so the exchequer must be getting £12 million.
Bloody foreigners coming over here and putting £12,000,000 into the tax system. >:(

According to google the PM earns £150,402 each year.

So, to put this in perspective, we have a kid earning more than 3 times that amount  EACH WEEK for kicking a ball around on a muddy piece of grass for 90 minutes. :(

As for tax, I doubt he will pay much. Smart accountants will see to that.

is that better? :)


Mr Albitz for sure. :)

I must have been way ahead of my time as I've had a few 4 pots that'd cut to 3 regularly :D :D I did once-back in the '70s have a 3 pot motor.It was a Wartburg Knight estate 3cyl two stroke with a separate coil for each cylinder and a freewheel device on it :y


That must have been a real crumpet-catcher, Mr Baza. ;)

A haze of 2 stroke smoke must have followed you everywhere. :D

Unmarked Plod got me a few years back on the M3 , clocked at107 MPH: they said it would be an automatic court appearence for anything 100 MPH or higher.
They kindly looked after mu licence for me for 6 months.  >:( :(

Ron.

I must admit I have driven at some ungodly speeds. I try to be aware of unmarked cars but you can never be totally sure. :)

James......I'll see if I can find the results of my liver function tests. That should put your mind at ease. ;)

All three tests are perfectly satisfactory.

I'm not quite sure what your concern is.

I recently had a 'top of the range' blood test where over eighty 'functions' were tested. About forty were in the middle of the normal range, twenty at the top of the normal range. Another twenty were batshit high or abnormally low.

The doctor seemed unconcerned. We all have to die of something. :)

I wonder about the longevity of a small engine with a high specific output.

Great when new but.................. :(
