Britain’s rich get richer even as recession begins to bite

In his new book on international elites David Rothkopf observes, The rise of nation states produced national ruling classes. It would be odd
if the current integration of the world economy did not produce new global elites, business people and financiers who run global companies.

The degree of wealth disparity in the UK is astounding and Beresford is not the only commentator to note the increasing hostility towards the
super-rich. A couple of days after the publication of the list, Dominic Lawson opened his weekly column in the Independent newspaper by stating: If there is a bloody Bolshevik revolution in this country, I think I can guess the inflamatory pamphlet which will be waved by the people
putting the wealthy up against the walls and shooting them. It will notbe the Communist Manifesto. It will be the Sunday Times Rich List.


The planet is being raped of natural resources and a tiny minority owns most of the wealth. Indeed the business people and financiers, as murderers of the Earth, should be taken up against the walls and shot.

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

From William Shakespeare's "Macbeth"
