Re: Article in UK Paper The Guardian

I think for the Brits many including those in the middle class live a very sparse life compared to Americans.

I have been to London several times and even stayed with a few families. I talk to everyone while I am waiting for or on a bus, train etc asking them how their life is. It shocked me that in solid middle class homes (sometimes with 2 levels) you find 1 TV, 1 phone, only a few articles of clothing and few pairs of shoes. Some people I stayed with owned or had leases of 99 years for homes.

I think this is why the article said wealthy Blacks.

Remember a few years ago when the price of silver was high so many Brits were selling silver items that had been in their family for several hundred years.And it was being lamented on the BBC.
