Plenty of smooth criminals
are depicted in the media and often make a life of crime seem like a grand adventure. Kate wanted her audience to know that in real life the risk isn't worth the reward. She told Keyboard
magazine in 1985: "There are lots of films where robberies take place and yet they glorify them, they always make the robbery something very heroic and fun, risky and dangerous, but for me it's something incredibly scary, something that has such a potential of going wrong that it's not worth the risk, and I don't think it's something that should be glorified at all. I think it's something that should be made very real, so that people realize it's not worth the effort - it's not something that's fun, it's something that's just not worth the effort. You'll end up in jail for 30 years!"
