Penny Sweets.

Apparently in this country 50 per cent of the population in this country earn more than £35,000 a year.

Between that 50 per cent, they make up 93 per cent of the income of the United Kingdom.

(Source. UK  Revenue and Customs).

Or put it another way, the other 50 per cent earn just 7 per cent of the country’s income.

Penny sweets anyone?

  1. Dangerously radical thoughts here. Keep it up! 😀


  2. A horrendous thought. But penny sweets are bad for teeth – give ’em sultanas instead!


  3. Our combined household income isn’t even 35 bloody thousand a year.


  4. It could be worse. You could live in the States. Mitt Romney brings in more in an hour than I have in a week. The top 1% have the top 90% of the wealth. The system’s broken, and I fear for our children.
