If I spent that much, I‘d want to be carried in with the fizz

RICK JACKSON: Our las total eclipse was typically British – cloudy

Have your say

There was plenty of comment in the media this week about the wealthy Brit who blew £330,000 on nine golden bottles of Champagne at the Billionaires’ Club in Monaco.

All the usual comments appeared on social media. People called him selfish and moaned about how many poor people could have benefitted from the money, what charities could have done with it etc. All the usual boring stuff.

Some people were even hoping he lost all his money at the casino.

Why do people always get jealous when others spend money on themselves?

I say he earned it, so let him do what he wants with his money.

Apparently one bottle took four people to carry in. If I’d spent that much on fizz, I’d want to be carried in with it!
