    I will, when I qualify. In fact, within a few years (barring malpractice suits and getting struck off) I'll earn more than both of them put together.

    At the moment I'm in a war with Mr. Inland Revenue because he charged me income tax last year when he shouldn't have. Right now I think they owe me about £300 :mad:

    £264!
    Imagine doing that for a whole year!

    In September I'll be earning £18,000p/a. That's a lot less than my dad, but I think it's more than my mum, because she's a teacher and only works part time.

    I dont make my own money, if I want some i ask my dad. I could make it really big teaching these saudis their abc and "where is the cat" "the cat is in here", but my mum wants me to concentrate on my studying. :mad:

    Daniel Beddingfield makes more money than his parents. My parents knew his family in a distant sort of way a few years ago, before he got famous.
    Why knew your family his family, or also Daniel?
