In the new spirit of everyone getting along. I post this as a back up to my apology.

Sound warning.

I used to give alcoholic drinks to people for the exchange of money. Some of these people may or may not have been under 18. One was a place that advocated gambling, and at least one was a place where people took illegal drugs.

Then I sopent days fobbing people off under the guise of "customer services", for a monopoly.

Then I worked in advertising.

Now I work in football, which is - if the parasitic bottom feeders not on Fleet Street anymore are to be believed - rotten to the core and devoid of any positive aspects at all.

Who did you used to be, Pants On Fire? And which ad agency did you work for?

EDIT: Good on you, Major!

I used to sell advertising space in newspapers, then I went to a specialist Direct response ad agency.

I won't mention their name, because they were the most horrible people to work for, and with. All I'll say is that they are situated in Southgate, North London. And they specialise in travel advertising, in high volumes, and a low margin.

I used to be Kettle.

The company I work for uses street children from Brazil as a base for some of their al forno pasta dishes.

They also exploit Bolivian cash crop farmers. Not for any economic gain, just because they're really nasty.

the sacking wasn't related to my stance on Nessles, unfortunately.

Aye. Lovely neighbourhood. First time I ever saw a gun.

Or a bullet hole in the side of a van come to think of it.

Or a tramp eating a pigeon.

I have always wondered why OTF's sizable Journalistic community are so defensive of their trade and respond pretty aggressively to criticism.

It's only a job.

I imagine because for most of them it's a vocation that pays (badly) rather than 'only a job'.
