Money is democratic

Quote of the week from Chris Trotter:

Strangely, we don’t seem to mind if our leaders are richer than we are. Money, after all, is a wonderfully democratic thing. With sufficient hard work (and just a little bit of luck) just about anybody can become rich.

He was writing about John Key in such a way that I am going to resist the temptation to quote more and suggest you follow the link above to read it all yourself.

Update: The column is now at Bowalley Road too.
