Thread: A 70,000 salary defines you as rich?

  1. #1

    A 70,000 salary defines you as rich?

    What utter tosh. 70,000 equates to around 4,000 per month, net. Call it 1,000 per week.

    Now let's subtract essentials: Cigarettes and booze, 210 per week. Food, 200 per week.

    So we're left with 590 per week to pay for motoring expenses, eating out, holidays and staff?

    Fck off. Impossible.

    Obviously you can live reasonably comfortably on 70k (assuming you don't have a mortgage, naturally) but 'rich'? Absolute nonsense.

    Shows how out of touch with ordinary people the left is.

    Switch to roll ups, Chief. You'll save a fortune. Asda do a very presentable own brand lager that could save you a couple of bob.

    With the whole Brexit deal you are going to run out of foreigners to exploit so you may have to cut back on the staff and do a bit of hoovering yourself.

    It's definitely not 'Monty Money'

    and if you are on a 70k salary you are going to live in a different way. Therefore you will most likely have a higher mortgage than others as you've perhaps bought a more expensive place and more expensive to run and maintain car.

    roll ups are not nice.

    I switched last year and its fantastic once you find the right tobacco and filters for you.

    I buy mine duty free. I smoke like a chimney but I spent 58 quid on tobacco last November and haven't spent a penny since.

    Best decision I ever made.

    At times of national crisis we must all pull together and tighten our belts out of civic duty for this country that we all love. Some personal sacrifices may be necessary.

    You know, like the ones we ask poor people to make all the time.

    Yes, it's deeply unfait that 1% of the population only pays 27% of income tax receipts. Surely these scavengers who do nothng better than work hard to create employment and wealth should carry every other lazy, feckless victim?

    If you ever accidentally put on channel 5 there is bound to be a benefits programme on.

    They all smoke.

    That 1% work hard to create wealth do they? The people that work for them may well do and it is hardly a badge of honour particularly if you are intent on keeping all of that created wealth for yourself.

    Anyway, I hardly think 70 grand puts you in the top 1%. Lets stay on topic here.....
