Rich Follies

Three stories which caught my eye this week - no doubt because they were all placed on the same page on The Metro in an attempt to convey the message that many rich people are, in fact, capable of stupid acts.

The message clearly got through to me. Here are the stories, all involving cars:
  • Ronaldo, aged 23 and earning £120,000 a week, wrote off his brand new Ferrari while driving it for the first time to the Manchester United training ground. He crashed the £200,000 car into a crash barrier.
  • Rugby international Mike Tindall was banned from driving for three years and fined £500 for driving while over the legal limit. Tindall was pulled over in March 2008 as his Range Rover Sport was seen swerving on the M4 near Newbury.
  • Princess Beatrice, fifth in line to the throne, had her £17,000 BMW stolen from central London. Word from the parking space is that the car was left unlocked with the keys in the ignition.
