Restaurant critic or travel writer.

Round my way, most fire-men are window cleaners and cabbies. The fire job just a nice side line.

Or decoraters, odd-job men etc, and at weekends they cruise the town centre at peak hours for the boozy young girls in the fire engine.

Agree, both very cushy.

I suppose we shouldn't be picking on fire-men but ever since they pitched for a basic £30,000 per year we got a look at their hours.

So fours days on four days off. A legacy of the blitz.

Two days on nights (sleep at the station) if no 'shout' then the following day is yours. Daytime (2 days) go home to sleep.

So only 2 out of 8 days spent at the job. 5% of time doing something.

No chance. All those public engagements you have no choice but to do, pretending to look interested and engaged when you're not, always having to be polite and dressed up to the nines, all that ceremonial claptrap, all that formality and all those rules - no thanks!

Tony Blair. Talk hypocritical phony sanctimonious self-serving bullshit for £12m a year.

yes but that is only for a few hours a day or eveen a week for most of them........and they don't need to worry about so many things...someone else chooses what you have to wear for those occassions and they write what you have to say........

someone makes the meals you want and does the housework and worries about getting the tradesmen in to fix things.......

you can have your own personal trainer and physio qand go straight to the front of the queue for any medical problem without even having to que when you get there.......

Still wouldnt fancy it Seren - you have no say on when your time's your own and would you really want someone running every aspect of your life including choosing your clothes for you?

A prison's still a prison even if it's a very luxurious one.

not only do you just eat for a living - you never have to cook your own tea.
