Place your choice for the Dogbert characvter in real life……

I think that quite a lot of our real-life (UK) Dogberts aren’t in it for the American dream of a billion or two – that would be too much effort and far too much like work.
A comfortable and non-taxing sinecure, say chief tax polemicist to a tax-empowered EU (you know who) or graphics advisor to the National Statistician (our favourite innumerate Irish feminist historian). On a mere 100k + pension & a K or C-something (not for republican Irish, of course). For a couple of days a week, no more.
So Much For Subtlety

I would be in it just for a chance to reduce some of these people to a tank tread stain.
The babes, the glory, the place in the history books and the money would be purely secondary.
