    Knowing then what I know now..gas fitter/heating engineer or whatever it is they call themselves nowadays
    Or maybe a politician..not much work, lots of opportunities to stick my nose in the trough.

    A vet, I love animals, cows included dpelectrical, but anyone who has paid a vet's bill recently will understand that it is more expensive than private healthcare for humans, so you get to work with something you love and get paid a fortune to do it! Last bill paid was £ 1,300 for one day's care.!
