The Rich Have More Money

I don't get the deification of Clare Hollingsworth, and now I don't get the vilification of Gloria Chor.

Ms. Chor seems like a decent person whose husband happens to have a lot of money. Yes, she spends it, why TF not?, and the YouTube (or ThouTube as is was called in Ulie's day) video linked above tries to send her up with mocking background music, and editing to make her look as superficial as possible. It is obvious that the producers misled her and ended up doing a hatchet job on her. But, aside from having a lot of spondoolies, she is ordinary and unassuming.

Unlike say a braying Hooray Henry (whether the generic UK variety, or the local Tang Dy-Nasty), born with a silver spoon up his arse, she and her hubby have worked their way up. Everything they have is the result of their own work and, as far as we can see, they are not making money either from a rigged market or from exploiting people's misery in finding a roof to put over their heads. And if you jump to 4.59 on the clip, her daughter is seriously racked. Ooh err, Missus Chor!

So, good luck to her, and good luck to her hubby in getting this underhand video removed from the Tube.


  1. Well, Joycey does call Hollinsgworth a supremely good bullshitter. Never heard of the Chor woman, but thanks for the heads-up, as they say. A tad sad perhaps when your best friend is your domestic.

  2. It's hard to see why this was made, but I like the bit in the gym where the trainer appears to be doing the heavy lifting for her!

    As you say, "they are not making money either from a rigged market or from exploiting people's misery in finding a roof to put over their heads" - it appears that the husband is making it from giving people lung cancer instead.

  3. You raise an excellent, or may I say a sensible, point, PB. Oddly enough, I don't think there was a single gasper being smoked in the whole video.
