Good for him. He's worked so hard for it. But seriously: why? It's not like he'll ever really pay for anything in his life. He doesn't need a watch or a wallet.

Umm. It's an inheritance from his dead mother....leave the guy alone on this one.

I get that it's inheritance he'd rather not have. I just don't get why they need money at all.

I wonder how much of this Kate will get when William dumps her for some she-male who's 10 years his senior?

Like father, like son.

Well as long as its a rich person the left cares about then its OK for them to pass on their wealth, if this was someone on the right they would be screaming to take it all away.

I don't know when we changed the estate tax to "All yo money" but as a liberal I don't agree with that. We should go back to taking a percentage.

So, generations of one family permanently on welfare is fine by those on the right, then? Must be because they're not so, um, how you say?..."socialist"

I'm bad at math, but does that mean you're making $136k a year? That must be after taxes, and you're sobbing??

Or is my math all off? I'm bad at math.

In this country there is not much reason to have generations of families on welfare, it's why immigrants come to this country and laugh at people complaining. Sure sometimes you work long hours but you should have an end goal, people in the inner city complaining and in the Appalachian hills complaining should move. Too much money? Then you save every dime or take the easy way people sometimes move, joining the military. Sucks but I know of two guys who used that route to get a lot of his family out of the areas with no opportunities.

And still you missed my point, Fark people defend this guy getting a dead parents wealth but if this was Murdoch's kid getting an inheritance they would be calling for a 90% tax on the rich. Selective enforcement of guilt I guess.

Maybe because Rupert Murdoch's kids are Americans, and they'll be inheriting BILLIONS of dollars each?

Different than people on Fark and other radio shows calling for estates to be taxed 80-95% when someone dies, that is just farking stupid.

But then any time if I have to choose between giving money to the government or letting someone keep it I am choosing the person.

Hey, his mother earned her money the old fashioned way... whoring herself out.

2012-06-22 10:16:45 PM  
Anyone worth over a certain amount ( say like 100 million) should be taxed half upon their death. Why? Because you can afford to help out the rest of the country as a token of your good fortune arshole. Anyone moving over seas to avoid said tax should have a tarrif on all goods sold in the US by their respective corporate endevers until the balance is paid. So yeah.

his dead whore mother wouldn't have been worth jackshiat if she hadn't married dumbo the prince who wouldn't be jackshiat if it wasn't for the largesse of the British public who obviously have better things to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on these losers that are taking advantage of this ridiculous anachronism. the whole thing is an embarrassment to western civilization.

2012-06-23 01:05:54 AM  
At least we openly mock the Palins, it's kind of sad and super weird that the Brits still act like the "royal" family matters or should be fawned over by anyone.

Imagine if we worshiped the Bush's like that.

Came to say "In before Morans start going on about the Royal Family costing britain money, too late I see.

I shouldn't really respond to this at all but

A: Lady Diana Spencer was a lady before she ever met Charles.

B: The Royal Family make a lot more money for Brittain than they cost.

C: I can think of worse ambasadors for a nation than a family who have taken an active role in many charities and served in our armed forces. I'll take William over any of the vapid famouse for the sake of it celebs out there.

I can't tell from your profile where you're from but I;ll guess it's America, as a Brit would have said pounds, not Dollars.

Perhapse you shouldn't spout off about things that you don't understand and which don't affect you anyway.

Not all of her wealth was from the marital settlement from the Prince of Wales. As a teenaged nanny, she had bought a townhouse in London with an inherited trust fund from her mother or grandfather or such; her girlfiends/roommates paid her rent. Later, I believe her father, the Earl Spencer, Lord Althorp, left her at least a token of his estate; not all of it went to her brother, the current Earl Spencer.
