Succeed in politics and you have many enthusiastic fathers crowding about. Fail and you are that sad, forgotten orphan sitting on the step outside in the rain.
If you’re Kim Dotcom Fairfax will relegate you to, um, Digital Living, in the Technology section.

Oops, sorry, already spotted. Thanks Jonathan :)
The buildings did have that ’World Of Tomorrow’ look about them.
