There was only one cheerful soul in the Swiss Alps last week. And we all know who that was. The unflappable Enda, our very own Heidi (Five). As the 1pc gathered at Davos to fret about how to hold onto their 99pc of the money, and to discuss how many jobs they could get rid of with the fourth industrial revolution, the mood was apparently dark.

Some of the super rich were concerned about market turmoil, which is economic speak for Mario Draghi not giving away enough for rich people to keep buying shares and other assets.

Others are worried about China only growing at 6pc this year, when the 1pc need it to grow by double digits every year or else it might knock a few quid off all the money they could never possibly spend.
