how people get jobs, I mean the really big jobs paying more in a year than you’ll earn in two decades? 
 [ ... ] 
The reason we have a steadily growing problem with unemployment in this country is that Lord Burns has all the jobs, and there is none left for anyone else. 

Terry Burns has just been named as the successor to Luke Johnson as chairman of Channel 4. However, he is also the chairman of Abbey National and until this year the chairman of Marks & Spencer, as well as being a non-executive director of Banco Santander, non-executive director of the Pearson Group, the president of the National Institute for Economic and Social Research, president of the Society of Business Economists, chairman of the governing board of the Royal Academy of Music, a non-executive chairman of Welsh Water, and he also plays in the centre of midfield for Queens Park Rangers and sells “Digby the dancing trout” novelty gifts from a stall down East Street market. 

Actually, I lied about the last two, but the rest are true."

I've been a little creative in the paragraph order.

Read it all

Burns reminds me of this appalling American woman (in Britain to stay):,_Lady_Judge

Obviously an acquaintance of our very big-headed (literally) local Scots git.

So sue me you misshapen git.
