But it's all OK.

UK's latest 'Rich List' just been published: our uber rich still increasing their wealth at a phenomenal rate.

Just the remaining 99.99% of you who will have to cut back a bit.

Well, maybe a lot!

Yesterday when I passed the Tesco Extra store in Wigan, motorists were queuing to get petrol which was at £163.9 per litre.

Hardly surprising that there has been an increase in motorists going to the Supermarkets when the small filling stations etc have increased their prices higher than what they normally charge.

The one on Whelley charging £174.9 when they normally only charge around 4p above Tesco.

Rip off on top of rip off!

People are now sitting back and thinking do we need some of the overpriced items in the shops. I used to buy Lucazade at £1 for 1 litre bottle then not only did it go up in price to £1-25 they made the content smaller to 750millilitre. Do we need toffee/chocolate. Crisps have always been a rip off .Never seen has much meat on the shelves, People cannot afford it so are leaving it on the shelves. It only has a certain shelf life will the shops drop the price because it is all going for waste Supermarkets advertise they have dropped100 to500 prices of items and they will stop down in price for the rest of the year. Most shops have 10's of THOUSANDS of prices which have gone UP

Who are the owners of the small convenience stores and filling stations who are the most extra ripping off prices!

How brilliant was that? That song should be recorded, aired on the radio and distributed to the powers that be. A very good family of singers.

When you have people like Elon Musk who is worth around $365 BILLON, Bill Gates worth $133 BILLION, and many others who are so fantastically wealthy that they could never spend their money in their own lifetime, why is there still poverty in this world, and people who are struggling to make ends meet, and that's the point this family were making?

It's obscene, when all those people could band together, create a better life for many who are on the breadline in their own countries and continue a life of luxury. Yes, they've earned their money, but surely they can share a couple of million each to help eliminate the poor and the needy.

No, I'm not jealous of their wealth, but there are wealthy people around the world worth millions and millions - oil barons, sportsmen, recording artists, etc could help, and I know some do, but it's not enough.

I don't think I'd be able to manage a decent manage a decent night's sleep in my million dollar bedroom if I knew there were people starving.

Just my own personal understanding of the song in the video.

The young boy looks ever so much like a juvenile version of Volodymr Zelensky.

To give Bill Gates his due he does give a LOT of money to charity. Last year he gave 15 billion dollars to charity.

$15b was Gates biggest one off donation to date but the total over the years is almost twice that.

Money should be scrapped and go back to bartering instead.

Is somebody winning £140 million on a lottery also not obscene.

Surely, in these hard financial times, it would be better to have more people winning a smaller amount, even140 winning £1 million pounds.

But I supposed those who run the Lottery have to the have the publicity and a carrot to dangle to attract people to buy a ticket!
