    Share dividends multiply for rich

    Economy: Millions of ordinary people may be struggling with debts and pay cuts, but people wealthy enough to live off their shares have been enjoying a multibillion-pound bonanza.

    Shareholders were handed payouts totalling £19.1 billion in the three months to June – 27 per cent up on a year earlier.

    Tobacco, life insurers and mines were all fashionable choices for the profit-seeking idle rich.

    Capita Registrars chief executive Charles Cryer, whose organisation compiled the figures, boasted: “Shareholders have reason to cheer – dividends are finally flowing freely again.”

    No austerity on Cameron’s holidays

    David Cameron says we’re “all in it together”. But most of us couldn’t afford his holiday.

    He’s currently splashing out on a fortnight at a £10,000‑a‑week Tuscany villa.

    But he has other ways of saving cash. He was caught not leaving a tip in a local cafe.

    £40 million… We can afford it

    Austerity? Not for the super-rich who plan to buy new flats in Chelsea for up to £40 million each.

    The Glebe is set to be the new most expensive address in London. Each resident will get their own swimming pool, games room and a private lift.

    “When one is super-rich, £30 million to £40 million is neither here nor there,” says estate agent Gary Hersham.

    The flats, near the posh King’s Road, are being built by a hedge fund. And there will be a huge wall around the site—a feature “very important to the super-rich”, says Hersham.
