Rich list is a bit… rich

The Sunday Times Rich list is something of an annual fixture and no doubt those that think happiness is gauged purely by levels of bank balances will be gawping away at the numbers this morning

But do we really need this? Do we really want to know? I would suspect that Cameron and co would rather not given that the overall tone of the “list’ is that the rich have got richer… again

This blog avoids politics, but any observer could surely see that this is hardly welcome for the present administration coming on the back of the news about the double dip, the politically insensitive cut of top rate tax and the hiking of VAT on cheap sustenance food as well as the slap in the face for Bob Diamond.

I believe the UK as a whole is well past the days of wealth resentment and rightly there is plenty of admiration for enterprise but at the same time, there is a strong belief in “fairness”. It is arguable that Thatcher came to power simply because the tide had turned against an administration that was perceived (possibly unfairly) as being out of touch and unable to engage beyond its natural constituency

History being repeated?
