David McWilliams and the Accidental Millionaires

Intensely depressing stuff from David McWilliams in this morning's Indo. In one way, there is nothing new about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer, but somehow, as he stand in the bus shelters and sits still on the M50 day after inderminable day, An Spailpín Fánach gets the feeling he's missing something. Something very significant.

The late Warren Zevon wrote a song once that had the refrain "Send lawyers, guns and money - get me out of this!" Your correspondent knows just how he felt. Sigh.
