So, right then, Scooch had secret backing singers off stage and, ohmygod, they were middle-aged. This isn't the authentic, hard-driving, rock 'n' roll combo we thought it was. At the same time, it turns out a McJob is not, in fact, 'poorly paid and menial', but, according to David Fairhurst of McDonald's chief people office in Northern Europe (can this be right?), it is 'stimulating, rewarding and offers genuine opportunities for career progression and skills that last a lifetime.' Stone me, they kept that one quiet. Anyway, CPO(NE) Fairhurst wants to get the dictionary definition changed. Fair enough if he can just tell me about these 'skills that last a lifetime'. It's all in the wrist I gather.
