Cole Parker Posted May 30, 2010 Report Share Posted May 30, 2010 Why haven't I seen this on the News and Views here? Sunday, May 30 2010 UK - He became the self-proclaimed king of the chavs after turning up to collect his 9.7 million pound lottery win. But eight years on, having blown all that money, Michael Carroll is practising for a return to his old job as a binman. The 26-year-old, who squandered his multi-million fortune on drugs, gambling and thousands of prostitutes, is keen to get back to earning 200 pounds a week collecting rubbish. It boggles the mind how he could run through 10 million pounds in 8 years, no matter how many prosies he paid or how many lines he sucked into his nose. He must have been trying really hard to blow all that in 8 years. I'd say he was a young man of determination and staying power. One question: just how great shape does one have to be to meet the strict qualifications of 'binman'? C Quote Link to comment
