Yer gotta larf
The news that the scion of Maggie Thatcher
, the milk snatcher
, has been arrested for alleged involvement in a botched coup attempt
against the government of Equatorial Guinea is just too good to overlook.
I don't hate the rich, well not all of them. My current visa is the result of largesse from a very well known businessman and ex-playboy here whose kid is in the same class as our kid. As I now have a new sponsor, I will shortly be purchasing a very expensive gateau from my very rich friend's very expensive delicatessen in Kemang, Jakarta's very expensive enclave of very rich expats and others, in order not to appear a cheapskate as I say very many thanks for the largesse of the past year.
I digress, but only a little. You see, my very rich friend numbers Tommy Suharto amongst his friends. Tommy, the son of the Smiling General
, is another scion who parlayed his links with s/he-who-would-not-be-criticised or turned
into a personal fortune. Tommy was an untouchable who laughed at due process
, but finally got caught and is now being a good boy in prison. Unfortunately he won't be receiving any more visits
from his busty 39-year-old celebrity ex-model girlfriend Sandy Harun but, no problem, he's just been granted a remission
of three months from his fifteen year sentence being served for ordering the murder of the judge who had sentenced him to 18 months for land fraud.
My very rich friend actually served his time for the same land fraud crime, has been rehabilitated and continues to keep a low profile without, to my knowledge, abusing the privilege which his (inherited) wealth has afforded him. He no longer takes part in motor rallying, a sport which, unlike Mark Thatcher
, he was very successful in.
And Mark? No-one gives a shit
Footnote: type "Maggie Thatcher*Milk Snatcher" into Google and be agreeably pleased by how much she is still hated.
