image for What a Bloody Cheek! Moral Dilemma

Husband: Them Bankers. What a cheek. We help them out when things are bad and what do we get? A kick in the teeth. It shouldn't be allowed.

Wife: You can't blame them. You would be exactly the same if someone offered you a million.

H. No I wouldn't.

W. You bloody well would!

H. It wouldn't be moral.

W. Since when has morality got you anywhere.

H. No. I've got my self-respect. It is like stealing. Bankers are just thieves stealing from the tax payer.

W. So why did you pay that builder in cash?

H. Because he asked to be paid in cash.

W. And why do you think that was?

H. So we don't have to pay VAT.

W. Nor does he have to declare it. You are both fiddling away so nurses have to be sacked and people have to wait years for operations.

H. Hey! That's a bit over the top.

W. So who is moral, the Vat thief or the Bank Chief?

H. Well next time I'll pay the VAT.

W. Over my dead body!
