Evidence:
'Read all about it chum in the papers, they don't interest me 'cept they don't do anything like for the likes of us, they talk about what we should eat, why don't they see we get it. . . . Vitamins-bread and bloody jam is what we get. . . . They think about more ways of making bloody money for the capitalists. . . . It's all right if they'd keep men in their bloody jobs.'
