    "-Gina, 23, receives £10k a month from her mother after falling out with her father and losing his £20k allowance
    -She lives at the Savoy while her £1m house in King's Cross, a gift from her mother, is refurbished
    -Five-bed house will have a walk-in wardrobe covering the entire top floor, a swimming pool, jacuzzi and home cinema
    -Spends £1k a month on chauffeurs and taxis, and £600 at the hair salon
    '-I could never date someone who is poor. That would be the worst thing that could ever happen to me'
    "

    Opinions?

    Personally, whilst she doesn't come across as a very nice or appreciative person in the article, I respect that it is her parent's money that they have earned and they can choose what they want to spend it on, and surely that sort of spending can only be good for the economy?

    What she embodies is the typical values of a British female;

    ''It's just me, me and me. I'm so in love for myself, I want to be find the perfect man who treats me like a princess and I don't want to earn anything in life because I'm a woman!''

      Yes, her spending is good for the economy. I'd rather see her hit by a tube train and brutally killed though. These people are human waste. They contribute nothing to nobody. That money is her parent's money, and they are the ones to be commended for their success; although their parenting skills are another thing completely.

      She as a human being has done nothing and has no worth to society. She sits on her big fat ass and leeches from others. What's the point in her?

      What is ironic is OP's justification that 'surely that sort of spending can only be good for the economy'. I can guarantee that if this was a boy/man the response would have been much different.

      Apparently she "earns £2,000 a month as a personal stylist." So it seems like she is doing something.

      I just wonder what she must be like as a person. The article says that she once spent a large sum of money on her father's credit card without permission. If she has a sense of entitlement so great that she feels it acceptable to essentially steal money, I'd be willing to bet that she isn't a particularly nice person.

      What is it with you and your whole "the world is against men" thing? Anyway - the article states that her brother gets spoiled as well.

      Sounds like a bit of a ***** really. But hey, who am I to judge. my only information comes from this article... hopefully she isn't this superficial in real life. Otherwise she'll need to learn to value things soon.

      Meh, it just goes to show that our society having equal opportunities is a bit of a fib. I was dropped from parental financial support before I was 16.


      Her parents of course have every right to spend that money on her, but really they should know that they've failed at parenting. In her 20s, she should be dropped from the bank of mum and dad and start to make her own way in my opinion. It's not like she's asking for investments in her future, through university etc, but just money for handbags

      I said she didn't come across as nice. I didn't say she wasn't nice, I've never met her.

      Capitalism is designed for equal opportunities lol. Its the rich get richer the poor stay poor, but basically the same proportion of the population will be poor. Youre talking about communism
