The poor in Britain, including unemployed single mums, are incredibly wealthy by world standards, being in the top 30% of the world by possessions and consumption
    The middle class in Britain are in the top 10% of the worlds most affluent people.
    The rich - the top 1% - are much of a muchness world-wide. (OK, they will now have only 9 times more money than they can sensibly spend, as opposed to the 10 times more they had before the latest crisis.)
