Indeed, indeed and you can't have them flogged anymore except on open seas, the last time I was on it would you believe the champagne wasn't chilled enough, my trophy girlfriend fainted with the shock.

Yachts use sails.

Oh I know, me and my Eton chumps treated it like a sport, it was quite the laugh.. alas we had to stop it for a while when one of the staff died, we made it look like a tragic drowning though haha, and anyway we're much too important and he just a pauper boy...

Oh my, good gracious, I just spat out my caviar, how offence, I hope you hit him around for such atrocious and insulting service. Oh one time, I remember it well, one of the servants I caught sneakily sipping my champagne, well the basterd, I showed him, I said hey, you little ****, you want my champagne, and I proceddded to spit it into his face before, me and the fellows threw him overboard. Unfortunately, he tragically drowned too!

Ah Yes Eton memories come flooding back of cricket, cucumber sandwiches dorms and sodomy. Then the recruiters from MI5 and then even more sodomy, by jolly how we ever got to Cambridge MI5 without colonoscopy bags, I will never know.

It used to be €204 a week. €188 for people who are really trying to get work & need it to survive is fine.

Friends of mine have no idea what I do and have no idea what I get paid. One has said a lot about "high earners" and works in a trade. He is always trying to figure out what I make. It kind of funny consider how often he mentions doing cash in hand jobs and doesn't see that as tax evasion
There is good money in them actually.

My God, hyphenate man, hyphenate!
