    The shit bloke is at it again!

    Millionaire Stuart Broad tells people on minimum wage to stay humble.

    England cricketer Stuart Broad has told people on minimum wage they should remain humble.The millionaire sportsman tweeted that some of the poorest people in England were some of the richest in the world."I've heard if you earn minimum wage in England you're in the top 10% earners in the world. #stay #humble."

    The response on Twitter was predictably harsh."Great irony of Stuart Broad's comment is that he never stayed humble in his life. Makes KP look like Mother Teresa in humility stakes,"[at]Piers Morgan wrote.

    "Your basic salary this year is 44 times what someone in UK earns working full-time on minimum wage #stay #humble,"[at]wrote @AltCricket.

    "StuartBroad8 seems a bit of a prick. Public schoolboy type who has never had a to know the meaning of working class,"[at]@uggy7 Stuart Maguire wrote.

    Broad attended Oakham School - which costs 24,000 ($46,000) a year - and earns more than 500,000 a year in match fees and sponsorship earnings from playing cricket for England.

    In 2011, he[at]told the Financial Times[at]about his wealth and what he liked to spend his money on."I was probably worth 1 million two or three years ago, when I was 23. Like every member of the squad I get to drive a Jaguar XKR free of charge because Jaguar is our sponsor.

    "I do have a weakness for watches, which I tend to buy after a special achievement. When we won the Ashes in 2009, I bought a Franck Muller watch and to celebrate no 1 test status I treated myself to a gold Jean Mairet & Gillman watch.

    "I invest in wine, which I buy from a wine specialist. I've probably spent about 10,000 on various cases of wine in the past year.

    "Broad has since deleted the tweet and tried to explain that he was not telling poor people to stay humble, rather he was telling himself to stay humble because the world is a big place.

    Broad then posted: "No offence meant and sorry if any taken. The hashtag was aimed at myself."
    Yes, Stuart, just reminding yourself how lucky you were to be working a minumum wage eh?


    In an interview with the BBC, the Nottinghamshire seamer tried to explain further the reasons for his tweet.
    "I didn't mean anything by it," he told Test Match Special reporter Charles Dagnall. "It was purely… I was amazed by the size of the world."
    Yeah Barbie. That shit that Chris Gayle gave you to smoke is like wow man yeah?
    Broad is due to face India in the tri-series in Sydney on Friday.

    In another post, he wrote: "Clarifying my earlier tweet, I merely wanted to emphasise my amazement at just how big the world is."
    Yeah we got you the first time Barbie. Stop smoking that shit dude! ..and stop trying to use your brain - it's not a good look

    Cricket in the UK has always been about the school tie.
    Just annoys the members at Lords when a world class player comes from a comprehensive school.

    Imagine how they will feel in years to come when they have to put a portrait of Davey Warner up on the wall...

    well, Warnie is up there and he is at least as much of a bogan as Davie.
    And Davie will end up as good with the bat as Warnie was with the ball is my prediction.
