Billionaires boom in Britain

Issue No. 2358

As wages are being slashed and austerity forced upon the poorest, the rich are getting richer. 

There are now 11 more billionaires living in Britain than there were last year—88 now live here.

Their collective wealth stands at £449 billion.

They make up just 0.003 percent of the adult population.
