Someone famous once said something like; 'a life without ambition is a life not worth living'. I think. Sod it, I'll claim it. - Scamp 2013.
I wouldn't say that but the peculiarly British attitude of "knowing your station" drives me mental. Why the hell should someone be knocked for being ambitious and wanting to better themselves ? An attitude I firmly believe is only held by those who know themselves that they are incapable of bettering themselves in anyway and thus attack and belittle anyone who does try or god forbid succeed. Utter wankers
