About this deal
It is clear here that Mr Birling is driven by money, he is a capitalist. The fact that he sees his daughter's engagement as a chance to push for 'lower costs and higher prices' shows just how greedy he is. He does not consider the impact 'higher prices' might have on anyone else, he just wants more money.
Some four decades later, Hooker was shooting a fashion television show with Grace Coddington, the model and Vogue editor, at a Mr Chow dining room (Coddington and Chow were married for a year in the 1960s) when the man with the owlish glasses and flair for theatricality showed up. He blew Hooker away with his charisma and aura of mystery. “There were no biographies of Michael Chow,” the director said. “I thought he would be a great subject of a film.”my duty to keep labour costs down" - use of 'my' shows his arrogance, 'duty' suggests he feels an obligation to do this. In the British Armed Forces a subaltern is often referred to by his surname and the prefix Mister by both other ranks and more senior commissioned officers, e.g. "Report to Mister Smythe-Jones" rather than "Report to 2nd Lieutenant Smythe-Jones". clothes mean something quite different to a woman.

Messieurs is the plural of monsieur (originally mon sieur, "my lord"), formed by declining both of its constituent parts separately.  Historical etiquette [ edit ]
Master of the Rolls, the President of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales, Civil Division, and Head of Civil Justice Find sources: "Mr."– news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR ( January 2022) ( Learn how and when to remove this template message) In the United Kingdom, Ireland and in some Commonwealth countries (such as South Africa, New Zealand and some states of Australia), many surgeons use the title Mr (or Miss, Ms, Mrs, as appropriate), rather than Dr ( Doctor). Until the 19th century, earning a medical degree was not required to become a surgeon. Hence, the modern practice of reverting from Dr to Mr after successfully completing qualifying exams in surgery (e.g., Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons or the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons) is a historical reference to the origins of surgery in the United Kingdom as non-medically qualified barber surgeons.
