(en) Britain, Aanarchist journal Direct Action #41- Class: Gap between rich and poor 'widest in 40 years'; Stating the bleedin’ obvious

Date Sun, 23 Nov 2008 11:00:33 +0200



Britain is becoming an even more segregated society with the gap between rich
and poor reaching its highest level for more than 40 years. ---- During the past
15 years there has been an increase in the number of households living below the
poverty line, with these households accounting for more than half of all
families in areas of some cities, according to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
At the same time, households in already wealthy areas have tended to become
disproportionately wealthier, with many rich people now living in areas
segregated from the rest of society. ---- Since 1970 levels of poverty and
wealth in different areas of Britain have changed significantly, with the
country now moving back towards levels of inequality last seen more than 40
years ago.

The group, which drew up a poverty and wealth map for Britain, said there was
evidence of increasing polarisation, with rich and poor now living further apart.

Class - Stating the bleedin’ obvious

A recent report by the National Children's Bureau (NCB), Family and Parenting
Institute and the Institute of Education, has examined what happens to children
at home and in school, and explains the complex dynamics of inherited
disadvantage. The report used data from a study that tracked 17,000 people born
in 1970. It may be no surprise to know that a child born to a labourer is six
times more likely to suffer extreme poverty by the age of 30 than a child born
to a lawyer.
