Sunday Times Rich List.

It's just as well that all three main political parties are completely relaxed about people getting filthy rich or the publication of the Sunday Times Rich List so close to a General Election might have proved a tad embarrassing. It appears that in spite of all the economic hard times and the pressing need for us all to tighten our belts, that the top 1,000 fat cats are a cool £77.265 billion better off than this time last year. Who will be the first election hopeful to remind us about all that wealth that the mega rich somehow "create"?

'Twas Maggie's Magic which became Tony's Tonic - in reality all versions of the "Trickle Up Theory"... And it looks like we might be in for another dose.
Mind you, £77,265,000,000 doesn't goes far these days, what with all these taxes and eveything.
