drawn into city
sugar and cloth spun to gold
slavery's profits


n.b. It is all beginning to add up, connect, make sense. A country that thrived on dirty money can’t kick the habit. Banking, insurance, property, stocks and shares, exploitation of the workers, whether slaves or those trapped on minimum wages.

The rich get richer, the divide widens; the values of the market predominate, the price of every penny, the value of nothing; it’s always been profits before people; hence the willingness to accept the dodgy money from Russia, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, to name a few places where Premier League football clubs have received financial backing – don’t even ask where estate agents, lawyers, and private schools get their cash.
