The nonsense factor
Ian Bickle lets off steam about people voting with their wallets
How many times have you been in the pub and heard people complaining about the NHS or been waiting for a ward round and heard patients and their relatives whingeing about the care they are receiving? Probably quite often, but I am sure you have also had to hear and read many people in the United Kingdom having a right old moan about how much tax they pay. Let's have a look into the mind of one of these people - name is Mr Average - more of him later. By the way, Mr Average is married, with one son, and has a pet poodle called Lucky, whom you will also meet.
