World’s Richest Woman Says Stop Drinking, Smoking, If You Want To Be A Millionaire (Updated)

Here’s some advice from Gina Rinehart, the world’s richest woman.

“There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire.  If you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself — spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working.  Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build, and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others.”

Ms. Rinehart, daughter of Australian mining tycoon Lang Hancock, inherited her multibillion dollar fortune.  A good portion of it resides in a trust fund for her children who are currently suing to have their mother removed as sole trustee.

UPDATE:  Apparently  Gina Rhinehart is a global activist after all.  After exhorting her Australian minions to stop drinking & smoking and being jealous of her, to get out there and “create employment opportunities for others”, she clarifies exactly who the “others” should be.  Africans willing to work for starvation wages:

We must be realistic, not just promote class warfare. Indeed, if we competed at the Olympic games as sluggishly as we compete economically, there would be an outcry.

The evidence is unarguable that Australia is indeed becoming too expensive and too uncompetitive to do export- orientated business. Africans want to work. Its workers are willing to work for less than $2 per day. Such statistics make me worry for this country’s future.

The words “class” and  “Gina Rhinehart” rarely appear together in the same paragraph.  The words “African” and “warfare” however, combine to conjure up apocalyptic images of a ruthless dog-eat-dog world which, I suspect, would reflect Ms Rhinehart’s image of utopia.  I believe it would be unwise to ignore the ominous threat in the Grand Dame’s pronouncements lest we wake one morning to find an army of poorly paid African mercenaries storming Australia’s shores under Rhinehart’s command on a holy mission to restore Australia to its former glory as a penal colony providing cheap labour to aristocratic interests

      I assume your epithets are directed at the inimitable Ms. Rinehart and not your lowly scribe who has never seen a golden spoon much less mouthed one. No, I’m one of those parasites sucking on the government teat simply because I have a fatal lung disease which makes me disinclined to physical labour, e.g., walking, tieing shoelaces, talking. Well, at least I’m not taking jobs from the immigrants. 🙂

      Just to clarify, I’m the poor one, she’s the rich one.I just write about the filthy rich, for which they pay me nothing.
