A conversation that happened:

Me, gazing absently at the abseiling line graphs on the front of the Guardian: Hell in a fucking handcart

Tassos: Yup

Me: We’re all pretty much screwed

Tassos: I’m a freelancer working in the culture industry so you know…

Me: … There’s others that are going to be worse off. Still we’ll be out there picking scraps of gruel of the bloodied streets with the rest of them.
