There was definitely heated debate on last night’s question time but then, there usually is isn’t there?!

Now, we all know that Bill Gates is one of the wealthiest people on the planet but, I am wondering what it must be like to have responsibility for the £24bn that he has in his foundation. http://bit.ly/aXbT5s
