    Not everyone wants to be rich - that's why they voted Labour.
    That's merely accepting you don't have the drive or skills to be rich. They will still put down the lottery/scratch cards.

    Yup, I want to be filthy rich. Rich enough that money isn't an issue.

    like this... but obviously better...
    That looks awesome, I'm adding this to my list of things to have in my home castle

    What people want is financial security as opposed to being rich per say, once you get to a certain point there are diminishing returns.

    Personally my goals are..

    Post tax salary of £3k per month (£45-50k with the current tax system).
    Own 2 properties (one my home and the other a source of income)
    Pension fund after tax of around £1.5m (would give me £3k per month for around 50 years)
    Have enough savings to put my children through a private education (couple of hundred grand needed really)
    This is pretty much what I would be happy with, enough to live comfortably and be able to give my family a good life and have nice things

    Fairly simple, but getting there is a different matter :lol:

    But if we didnt have any money in the first place, what would need to be solved?
    A lot. Because batter simply didn't cut it and won't.

    Not right at this minute, since I want to complete my education first. Deep in my heart, I do only because to pay off my loans.

    inb4 I don't care about money
    inb4 I don't need money
    inb4 there's more to life than money
    inb4 money doesn't buy happiness
    inb4 happiness is more important than money
    ^ This. It's funny that these replies come from middle class school kids and university students who've never lived in the real world and their parents probably pay for everything. :lol:

    You get really wealthy people who genuinely care about those from disadvantaged backgrounds, equally you get poor blue collar Tories who just need to **** off and die

    I want to be rich in happiness and contentment rather than the worry of money which can come and go.

    I want to have enough money to be comfortable. I'll always have worries but I don't want money to be one of them.

    I'd love to be rich, but only so I can buy an island of the coast somewhere and live in peace
