I have neither already; perhaps I should boost my income by participating in this thriving and lucrative industry.

If this is the best our public school and Oxbridge-educated leaders can propose, is it any wonder the nation is as it is? What next; a letter to their mums? May I suggest instead removal of their mobile phones for a year and making them read books.

This might even yield a bonus of increasing their intelligence.
