I think someone got their maths wrong here.

Not if you know how dirt fucking poor the majority of the world's population is.

I just looked at the UK, I mean I'm self employed and I don't make loads of greenbacks but according to that load of bollocks I should be a dictator or somethin'.

I don't know about that bit. Their numbers seem a little off for that.

Lady_Castlemaine | March 17, 2006 at 11:23 AM

Ok boys, if you look at how they work the figures out, I think you may find a bit of cock-up! I am conisdered as one of the top 25% of earners which I really AM NOT!! FA and STD, See what statisitcs can do?

Pete | March 17, 2006 at 11:26 AM

Wow! I'm in the 23.45% richest in the UK and the 8.6% richest in the world.

The second figure is quite believeable for reasons that FullAuto mentiones earlier, but the first figure? Did they count people on the dole as earners or something? Fucking bin men get paid more than me (although I will admit that they get paid rather well nowadays!)

FullAuto | March 17, 2006 at 11:29 AM

Bin men get about 8 an hour, don't they? Mind you, I can understand why.

Perhaps all the toffs have buggered off and got themselves citizenship in Monaco or something...

Yeah I had at look at what Lady C said and it's the way they work it out but as they are trying to point out high poverty levels I guess that's the result they want.

Lady_Castlemaine | March 17, 2006 at 12:44 PM

As this is a site based on the worldwide figures with a sub section for the UK, I think that the figures are biased towards showing the amount of people worldwide are below the poverty line, the translation to the UK is definitely flawed, or perhaps FA is right, I know around 1,000 people per week are heading to France, perhaps that's only the tip of the iceberg!! Did anyone hear about Monaco's sea level getting higher? Or perhaps it's the weight of all the affluent (or is it effluent) moving in???

The UK one seems to count every individual who lives in the UK, regardless of whether that individual is supposed to be the breadwinner of the house. It even includes children who are too young to work.

It is not a good indicatior how how your personal income fares against the national average.

Well I'm off down the pub to tell those underpaid, overworked bastards that I'm one of the wealthiest people in the country, as long as I can blag 20 off the girlfriend that is.

silvertongedevil | March 17, 2006 at 07:54 PM

Shit, I hit the button twice....
