It was always so, the only saving grace is that though like my forebears I'm somewhere near the bottom of the pile I'm much more asset wealthy the my parents who had little more than the cloths they stood up in.

Why should you be commenting on the fact that my pension has gone up? lol

So we should do. We wish to maintain the standards to which we have become accustomed.

Joking apart it's easier, if you have sufficient of the folding stuff, to make better provision for hanging on to more of it.

Nothing illegal in that - the general view is that you don't pay more tax than you need to.

I would guess that the workers at Rolls Royce and Ferrari are quite happy, as are those that make and supply Fine Wines. They employ huge Staffs at their various Houses and spend vast sums maintaining their way of life.

So long as they spend the money that they make. "What goes around, comes around."

One could be jealous of them, but I have known a few and "If I were you" I wouldn't bother. Life's no easier.

Which would be better 500 millionaires spending their cash and creating work or one multi millionaire worth £500,000,000 spending some of his cash and perhaps creating some work?
I think job wise the former might create more work.
