The New Battlers

Today has been such a hilarious day for me. I find it so thoroughly entertaining to listen to the unfathomably rich talk about how hard their lives are. It seems to have become regular Budget week sport actually. Each year the newspapers take up the fight of empowering the rich, and plaster their hysterical pleas for respite all over the front page. For the first time today I heard the term "mortgage poverty", which describes people who are technically super-rich, but have convinced themselves they are poor. I plan to use this term and its variants regularly.

As funny as I find it all, if any of those poor battlers threatening to move overseas are actually serious, I would support them with all my heart and soul. In fact, I think I would even be willing to sponsor part of the purchase price of a one way ticket to anywhere else.
