Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I know you have personal investment in this guy, but surely even you can admit this disparity of wealth cannot be right?
I don't have personal investment in him at all, but I've always been fascinated by how a socialist society could / should deal with the issue of inherited wealth. I also refuse to apportion any perceived fault and blame on a 26yr old kid whose only role is to maintain, manage and improve upon, what is essentially, the family business, and who has also inherited the responsibility for the livelihood and security of hundreds of people.

It's human nature to bequeath your accumulated assets to your offspring, but how many generations down the line does this become 'unfair'? It's a conundrum.
