For infantry also read trading floors. I used to work for an investment bank in the City for about 10 years until being made redundant in 2008. The main thing I noticed on the trading floors was lots of very aggressive men, who had supreme confidence in themselves, and it must be said, very large amounts of arrogance. Most noticeable of all was that you could practically smell the testosterone in there. What that mental midget Morgan fails to notice is that traders do not have much time on the trading floor. These are young men, who work practically non-stop for hours and hours, and then party hard afterwards, it is not something you can do for very long, and after 8 -10 years they are burnt out, and their earning ability plummets.
Curiously they are similar to professional footballers, high in ability, aggression and testosterone, and who also have a limited earning span. I’m sure readers can come up with plenty more instances.
I just wish that politcians would accept what we all know instinctively: that men are women are NOT equal but different, and long may it remain that way.
