Alan the Red, the Brit who makes Bill Gates a pauper

“He came to Britain as an immigrant, fought his way to the top and could not have made it without the help of steel. But the richest-ever man in Britain is not Lakshmi Mittal, the steel tycoon who was born in India and has topped The Sunday Times Rich List three years in a row with a fortune now worth £19.25 billion. He heads a list of 250 people in a new book, The Richest of the Rich, by Philip Beresford, who compiles The Sunday Times Rich List, and Bill Rubinstein, a professor of history at Aberystwyth University. The Richest of the Rich, by Philip Beresford and William D Rubinstein, is published by Harriman House on October 15.”
