What a crazy world we live in when a tragic global event such as this is seen as a wonderful opportunity for those whose only aim in life appears to be grabbing as much money as possible:
From the Daily Mail 5.4.20:
"Jacob Rees-Mogg's investment firm is accused of exploiting worldwide market volatility caused by the coronavirus panic to rake in huge profits.
"The MP owns 15 percent of Somerset Capital Management, whose chiefs appear to be investing in businesses hit hard by falling stocks.
"Executives have told clients the international crisis is providing a 'once in a generation' chance of earning 'super normal returns' the Sunday Mirror says. "
Of course, he and his firm won't be the only ones. But it does make me wonder whether people like this, whose goals appear to be wholly related to the acquisition of wealth are the best people to be MPs.
