Bankers' pay

Right-ists are out in force (links to follow) to defend the rights of the well-paid to keep all their money without nasty state interference.
What I haven't yet seen is the lefties' case.
So i'll come up with one when I have time.
Not that anyone will read it, but that's another issue.
Help appreciated on that one.

Oh, and Southend won tonight. Woot

One reason that inequality matters, is because despite the right-wing argument that only absolute (not relative) wealth matters is because, simply, resources are nt unlimited.

Vast numbers of us, perhaps nearly everyone, would like a quiet secluded house, enough room for one bedroom for each kid, space for workshop, garage, not under a flightpath but close to good transport links and a major city centre. But the simple fact is that if you or a few have that, then I or the rest cannot.

This applies to anything that is not of infinite supply, not just peace and quiet and space but perhaps soon particular life-saving drugs or clean water.

That's one reason why inequality matters.
