This extraordinary account of ‘luxury lockdown in Kensington’ is really raising hackles
To the Financial Times, which has been getting a lot of attention today with this person’s account of ‘The awkward lessons of my luxury lockdown in Kensington.’
It’s in a section called FT Wealth so that gives you a hint of what to expect. Except, when you read it, it still takes the breath away.
You can read the whole thing here but here’s just a flavour.
And then there was the bit about the challenges of – and solutions to – homeschooling.
Anyway, that’s enough already. Here are just some of the things people were saying about it.

This is astonishing. Thought it was a spoof at first: "The awkward lessons of my luxury lockdown in Kensington" https://t.co/pCi0x7N5Vj

I quite like this as an actual honest portrayal of how utterly disconnected the super wealthy are. Also I read it in a Smita Smitten voice, so that helped https://t.co/pxD0v4Vu1B

This is, by some considerable distance, the best piece I’ve read about the virus in the last four months.
It’s an absolute masterpiece.https://t.co/2rfIRcLOkv
