      • Ah the dignity of work.
        As I remember it the son chops wood inside a nuclear submarine finding himself and love through honest and traditional labour.
        Until his father has a heart attack anyway.

        Tom Mcgrath is one of the founder members of the 7:84 theatre company and a famous anecdote concerns an attempt to bring one of his hard-hitting socialist dramas outside of a stale urban scene to proselytise afresh to new audiences around the Highlands and Islands.
        As the advance guard he pulled up at a petrol station somewhere around Inverness in his Landrover and trailer both brightly illustrated with the 7:84 logo.
        The auld bloke filling up his tank eventually had his interest piqued by the aforementioned logo.
        "So, ah" He inquired shyly "Whits the numbers staun fer oan yer boagy?" He gestured at the gleaming trailer. "Why 7:84?"

        "Well" Replied McGrath proudly "It is a simple statement that a mere 7 percent of Britain own 84 percent of it's wealth."

        The petrol pumper eyed him strangely.

        "What do you think of that?" asked Tom thinking of a new convert to the cause.

        "Weel" Replied the man "Thats all very well I suppose but theres nae need for ye tae show aff aboot it"

        With that he replaced the cap on the dumbfounded McGraths vehicle, lifted the bonnet and proceeded to check his black, black oil.
