The tales of Mitt Romney being a cheap bastard are well known. Well, it seems that if he ever becomes President, he can chat with George Osborne, Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer, about their shared interest in paying for nothing. Mr Osborne travelled in the first class carriage of a train on a "standard" ticket. (It was once known as "second class".)
This was pointed out to him, by the ticket chap but he refused to move. An aide said "he couldn't". Apparently his fat ass, or snobbery, just got in the way! My goodness.
Anyway, after being found out - he kindly agreed to pay the difference and had an aide do it for him.
I wonder if his aides were happy in the "pleb" class?
