The government says it is “offensive” for the rich to show off their wealth in the face of high levels of inequality and unemployment. I think ...
- Government should spend less time thinking up silly ideas like these, and more time on tackling unemployment (50%, 238 Votes)
- This is very rich coming from the government (38%, 181 Votes)
- I agree. The rich shouldn't rub their wealth in the face of the poor (8%, 37 Votes)
- It's their wealth and they can do whatever they want with it (4%, 22 Votes)
Total Voters: 478
