Worked To Death

In the April 21st 1987 issue of Red Rag: a spate of suicides hits defence trade computer experts in the Reading area; a new pressure group encourages councils to enforce the laws concerning estate agents boards advertising houses for sale; the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency has kept secret more than 250 reports of breakdowns at nuclear power stations; it takes twelve people to hold a riot, three for violent disorder, but only one for affray; along with Yuppies, Young Upwardly Mobile Persons and Dinkies, Dual Income No Kids there are now Yummies, the Young Upwardly Mobile Marxists; and Caversham has a plague of rhinoceroses.
