It's the last day of school for Ronnie Warboys and fellow school leavers, Wally and Rob, who are from the underachieving form 5G1. The boys look upon the Speech Day as a bit of a laugh and are never likely to be included amongst the prize-winners or academically successful. With a future already destined for work in various menial tasks their preparation for the 'prestigious' afternoon includes mowing the lawn, shifting chairs, etc.
As the dignitories arrive the battle lines are drawn up between the haves and have-nots, with senior staff separated from juniors and prizewinning pupils held in distain by the remainder. The main speaker, the mayor, a former steel factory compadre of janitor George, has sold out his Labour roots for a spot of social climbing will be delivering a speech full of the virtues of hard work however for Ronnie and his friends they are already well on the way to the industrial scrap-heap.
