The Fairytale of New Britain (Lucky Man)
Once upon a time in a land long gone a boy grew up.
After junior and grammar schools he went to the university where the government paid for him to study.
At the end of 4 years he tumbled into a job. He got a mortgage to buy a house, married and started a family.
As his career progressed he enjoyed accompanying salary increases until, one day, he retired and took his company and government pensions.
His parents never did this and nor will his children.
“Oh, what a lucky man he was”.
