Sunday Times Rich List:

6 posts in this topic

The 25th edition of the Sunday Times Rich List is due to be published this weekend.

When the first one was published on 2 April 1989, the paper called it an indictment of Thatcherism.

Margaret Thatcher had been in power for a month short of 10 years.

"The very limited success of the Thatcher revolution in transforming British society is graphically and grimly illustrated" by the list, the editorial said.

Old money

"Liberated from red tape, inflation, crippling taxes and the union barons, British businessmen by now should have seized the commanding heights of the economy and society," it said.

In that original list of the country's 200 richest people, only 86 of them had made their fortunes themselves.

The list was spattered with landowners, containing 11 dukes, six marquises, 14 earls and nine viscounts.

And at number one was the Queen (classified in the alphabetical list as "Queen, the") with her £5.2bn, sitting at the top of a tree grown from inherited wealth.

I'm not on it.. maybe next year.

I think that perhaps they should change the title from 'The Rich List' to 'The list of Rich people that want people to know they are rich'

I think you'll find that for every one on the list there are ten richer people that don't want anyone to know (including the Revenue & Customs) that's the reason there are so many celebrities on the list....big egos.

When you notice people like the Rothschilds are missing from the list. You know the actual richest person far trumps the current leader on these lists.
