Thatcher, Strauss-Kahn’s luxurious lives


This video from England is called Inside Luxury Travel – The Ritz Hotel London.

From weekly Socialist Worker in Britain:

Thatcher takes up residence at the Ritz

Margaret Thatcher has a new pad—the posh Ritz hotel. After hearing she is ill, the up to £4,500-a-night central London hotel invited her “to stay there for the foreseeable future”, says the Daily Mail.

It was always one of her favourite places, the newspaper adds—better even than her four-storey Belgravia home. “She is being pampered by all the staff,” a friend said. It’s good to see that in this time of austerity Thatcher is sharing our pain.

But Thatcher’s not the only one with a hotel hideaway. Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been spotted at a five-star resort in Mauritius. Rooms at the “totally indulgent tropical hideaway”, as the resort calls itself, cost up to £1,200 a night.

Strauss-Kahn, who was accused of raping a hotel cleaner in 2011, has nevertheless continued jetsetting around the world and staying in plush hotels. He was last spotted in Venice on a speedboat.
