With their separate queue, bigger plates, higher cost and different options, who the f*ck do these people think they are? They think they're f*cken better than us?

Turning their nose up at the subsidised hotplate and choosing to put extra money in the bulging pockets of the PFI provider?

Dining with the enemy.

Sorry. Can't hear you over the sound of my steak sizzling on the grill and the cracking of the lobster's shell.

Do they eat a sandwich without a knife and fork, or drink red wine with fish though?

Throw them from the tallest building in camp!

I find this mildly amusing. There are alternatives you might not like. Some years ago I was transcribing the diary of a WW2 officer, who was complaining at having to eat in the mess at prices set by the senior officers, all with private incomes, which the juniors could not afford. Attempts to introduce democracy at a mess meeting and get the rate reduced caused trouble.

What do you mean? PAYD is the very embodiment of an alternative people don't like.

As I understand this you can eat cheap as part of your 'mess bill' or pay extra for better food. You might be forced to eat expensive as part of your mess bill, no options offered.

As a follow up to this I've compared rates of pay at the time to their mess bill. They were being asked to pay between 28 - 36% as a mess bill. For seving subbies today thats ~£9,700 pa by my maths.
