The future of Very Indecently Prosperous People VIPP
2016 is only 4 years away. 2020 is 9 years and 2030 only 19 years away. These dates are in the future and could see dramatic changes to our social and political scenes. The day when the ruling party looses its support from the people and an alternative power forms the govt cannot be ruled out. It is only a matter of time, sooner or later.
When that day arrives, they will be many VIPPs among the upper crust of society. They will be laden with so much money and riches but not knowing what to do for a while. There will be no ‘Yes Minister’ ringing in the ears. There will be no full list of daily appointments to meet, no meetings and meetings, no dignitaries or visitors, no gracing events and opening ceremonies.
There will be no more fanciful titles of advisers, chairman, or whatever. The name card will no longer be as big as A4 size paper with 30 directorships, chairmanships or advisers. Just an ordinary name card will do, with the designation VIPP, Very Indecently Prosperous People.
Life will be great, full of time in hand to enjoy the wealth accumulated over the years in office. It will be a life of leisure and pleasure, parties all over the world. There is no need to work unless back side itchy. For those who have been indoctrinated with the mantra of work till death, they could use their wealth to buy over big companies and give themselves fanciful titles once all over again.
Applying for a job in GLCs will be a no go. The new govt will see to it that it will not happen. Being invited as consultants or advisers to private organizations too will not be coming, as the access to the new govt will not be there. The private organizations will not want to be in the bad book of the new govt to invite these VIPPs into their folds.
There will still be the past time of speculating properties with their wealth. Property prices will soar even higher unless the new govt put a stop to it by doing away with the current policies…and reintroduce estate duties. Whatever, the life of VIPPs can only be fun and fun and plenty of time to enjoy the fun. It is a deserving reward for a lifetime of sacrifice to the nation.
