London man understands almost nothing

A Londoner admitted this week that he understood little of how things really work. David Burns, 41, a Camden lawyer, told reporters he was utterly bewildered by most things. "Despite - or perhaps because of - a good liberal education and a successful career in the law I haven't got a clue about anything that's really important," he said. "I mean, I've got absolutely no idea about science, or medicine, or anything that makes a damn difference to any one's lives." Mr Burns was speaking outside Tufnell Park tube station on his way to his office where he is currently working on a large fraud case. He added: "And don't get me started on helicopters."
