The shock of self-awareness

Margaret Hilda Thatcher, in her pomp, declared that any man over the age of thirty who was still relying on bus services was a loser.

Belatedly I am come to the conclusion that the bitch was right after all.

And she knew all about losers, didn't she? I still loathe her.

As you are known to say, Bollocks. You are not a loser. Stay away from some of the right-wing oiks on Facebook.

Did she really say that? She seemed to have almost no sense of responsibility - astonishing, really.

Jimmy Bastard said...

I'm surprised that she even knew what a bus was.

No No No Kevin.
Not a loser - just 'carbon aware'.

No.

Just no.

She was just very provincial, darling. Anyway I believe the quote is misattributed: I think it was the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire who said it (and she really would have had no reason to know what a bus was).

Surely you have several more years to prove her right Kevin

Does this apply to women over 30 too?

Christ, I thought I was alone in remembering that. I particularly remembered it yesterday as I sat in my first-class railway seat, paid for by someone else, o the bliss. [Flicks cigar ash onto great unwashed staring enviously.]
