Australia's richest person, Gina Rinehart, says people need to give up their evil ways. No more smoking, drinking, socialising and gambling. Get out there and work hard and you could be as successful as me.
It rather reminds me of the educated classes of London writing their criticisms of the poor and their fondness for gin. The rich do seem to adore lecturing the working class.
Gina wants us to work harder, to spend more time at work. Fortunately most of society doesn't do that, so we have other things in our lives. Some of us potter in the garden. Some support artistic endeavours. Some go the shops daily. Some read. Some listen to and create music. Some take photos. Some travel. Some visit historic buildings. Some party like there is no tomorrow. Some look after animals. Some work for for free to the betterment of society. It takes all kinds.
Some even spend time bringing up children, moulding them into successful adults, and don't bring up children who have law suits out for their mother.
Methinks said Gina ought to have spent a bit more time with her children and bit less time making vast fortunes. She may well lecture us about our work ethic, but she does rather leave herself open for criticism for her family relationships.
