As usual, the face of Sir Fred Goodwin, the Enemy of the People, had flashed on to the screen. There were hisses here and there among the audience. The little sandy-haired woman gave a squeak of mingled fear and disgust. Goodwin was the renegade and backslider who once, long ago (how long ago, nobody quite remembered), had been one of the leading figures of the economy, almost on a level with the Prime Minister himself, and then had engaged in counter-economic activities, had been condemned to be pilloried, and had mysteriously escaped and disappeared.
Sir Fred Goodwin has a legal contract of employment and he is entitled to the rewards he negotiated, whether the system should have allowed that sort of contract to be negotiated is a.nother question.
Quote from Eric Blair and George Orwell in 1984.
