I found this list of the Worlds ten wealthiest politicians, there are a few more interesting “worlds tens mosts”, but having stayed in bed for a while now and not yet fallen asleep i thought ill just let my fingers take control for a while, on the key board of course..
There are a few obvious names, like Silvio Berlusconi of Italy and Micheal Bloomberg of the US.
But a few names in the list and a few names not in the list but what my limited database felt should have been in the list have been omitted.
I didnt think Saad Hariri, son of slain Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri would have made the list. And where the hell is the Sultan of Brunei ? everyone knows he is rich right ? i mean really,,
If the cold war was still on, it may have been quite a point to ponder that of the top ten richest politicians in the world 5/10 are Russian or from a former USSR republic, and only one of them is from the US.
Wonder if a Sri Lankan politician can soon make the list.. I am sure there is no lack of effort on their part, even though i am certain none of them have seen this list yet.
