Dining with Cannibals - Primo

It is in the nature of a world of money to punish those who steal from the rich more severely than those who steal from the poor.


Unofficial nick-name: Harry Potter, not-so-much on account of his initials being JK, but by the fact that the phalanx of clapping seals that comprised his middle-management fat-layer endearingly insist on calling him by those initials.
JK, a little man in a position of authority, guilty of ambition, for want of a better word, but a little man nonetheless, suffers further from the fact that he is a gay man in a historically conservative male dominated industry (is there any other kind?) and as such tends to overcompensate decisively by agreeing with the loudest voice in any meeting.
Mr Numbers watches with distaste, partaking only when questioned and then only with the pared-down skills of an obstructionist, employing the rigid financial negations for which he is renown.
The fact that his negations are more often than not negated themselves by those beasts further up the food chain is yet another component that furnishes the precincts of this particular chamber of hell.
JK smiles in response, avoiding the red rims of Mr Numbers’ cold, dead eyes.

All-you-can-eat Capitalism
