'I've got a system to explain why you had the riots,'
he says, pouring another drink. 'It's like the one I use
at the races - the Artillery system - and you get a bunch
of people to give you their reasons for the riots and then it's
simple: you select the one that is repeated the most. That's
the explanation.' He pours another drink. Downs it in one.
Pours another. 'You just have to make sure,' he says, 'that
the people aren't all bankers and other cunts from finance
and any parts of the capitalistic world, because ironically
you won't get anywhere near the truth about winners and
losers, and the system is going to let you down. Then look in
the crapper for your reasons, or try another system. I've got
loads of them and overall I'm running about even at
the races, but not rolling in it like some rich asshole.'
