Do British consider giving "ostentatious"? London mayor Johnson believes rich should focus on giving more, shoring up inheritances less.

"Boris Johnson launched an extraordinary attack against Britain's super-rich today, saying they ignored philanthropy in favour of buying 'colossal grouse moorland' and 'great schlosses in the Home Counties.' In a speech that will disgruntle Tory grandees - and their grouse-farming, Home Country-dwelling supporters - the Mayor of London said rich Britons were too preoccupied with passing on 'the biggest possible house' to their children to invest in good causes." -- Emily Dugan, the Independent
