UK Inequality

Oxfam reports that 634,000 Britons are worth 20 times as much as the poorest 13 million, making the country one of the most unequal in the developed world.

The richest 10 per cent of the UK population own over half of the country's total wealth (54 per cent) with the top one per cent owning nearly a quarter (23 per cent), whilst the poorest 20 per cent share just 0.8 per cent of the country's wealth between them.
