Oh dear. People missing the point, AGAIN...
mikewsmith; it's not that someone buying a tatty old car is a problem, the real issue is that they would spend such an obscene amount of money on it. All I am saying, is that people, as individuals, should maybe think, before they spend £3 million on a tatty old car, or whatever obscene amount, on trivial nonsense.
I think it's just part of the Global sense of insecurity that seems to pervade every aspect of our lives. You are 'nothing' unless you are wealthy, and in order to prove your status, you must display your wealth.
I think SFB, Sodyfarls and mboy have it.
Or is classic jealousy creeping in
You assume that someone is 'jealous', because they question the ethics of wasting money on a tatty old car? Not at all, I just think it's bloody stupid. You could do a sh1t load more with such an amount.
If you've got it, it's yours to do with what you want. If you haven't and want it then it's up to you to do something about it.
That assumes a level playing field.
Something which our wonderful Western governments seem hell bent on preventing...
Course, it must be his fault, he din't get 'on his bike', and make better of himself...
