UK most unequal country in the West

It’s official: the United Kingdom is the most unequal country in the West according to a UN report.

The report shows that the poorest 40 per cent of Britons share a lower proportion of the national wealth – 14.6 per cent – than in any other Western country. This is only marginally better than in Russia, the only industrialised nation, east or west, to have a worse record. Measurements of the gap between rich and poor tell a similar story. The richest fifth of Britons enjoy, on average, incomes 10 times as high as the poorest fifth.

The income gap in Britain and Australia is exactly the same as in Nigeria, much worse than in Jamaica, Ghana or the Ivory Coast and twice as bad as in Sri Lanka or Ethiopia.

And the Tories with the help of their Lib Dem human shields aren’t finished yet. Unless there’s a concerted defence of the British people — whether this comes from leadership from Labour or the TUC (some hope!) — we’re looking forward to feudalism.

Otherwise people are going to have to start doing it for themselves. And, do you know, maybe that’s not such a bad idea.

  1. I've left a smart-arse comment somewhere else on this post..wanna another quote from The Beggar's Opers..??

    how cruel are the traitors..who lie and swear in cheat unguarded creatures of virtue, fame and rest!
    whoever steals a shilling….
    sorry Mme.
    I can't remember much more…hahaHa_

  2. This claim or variants is widely used by "leftist" politicians, the BBC etc.

    It is, of course, a total and deliberate lie as even a little research shows (see Gini coefficient) and thus represents the very highest standard of honesty these wholly corrupt totalitarian parties, broadcasters etc ever aspire to.
