CELEBRATING WAGE SLAVERY

In the media led frenzy that will no doubt accompany the Queen's diamond jubilee many workers may imagine that they have something to celebrate. As they raise their cut-price can of cheap lager in celebration they may perhaps reflect that their masters will be celebrating in quite a different fashion. "An ultra-exclusive port, the Graham's Tawny 1952, is being released with royal approval for the Diamond Jubilee. The port is available exclusively through Berry Brothers at £275 a bottle, in three-bottle oak cases at £825, and in five jeroboams (4.5 litres) at £1,800." (Decanter.com, 11 April) We doubt if your local pub will be getting in a stock of jeroboams. RD
