    UK: Half of England is owned by less than 1% of the population

    “A few thousand dukes, baronets and country squires own far more land than all of middle England put together.”

    The findings, described as “astonishingly unequal”, suggest that about 25,000 landowners – typically members of the aristocracy and corporations – have control of half of the country.

    I've always heard that the descendants of the Normans own everything. Is that true?

    Did you know guillotines can have wheels, so you can move them from place to place where need be?
    No relation at all to this topic, just a nice fact I felt like sharing, somehow.

    With the increasing disparity between the rich, middle class, and poor, and the continued trend of a top heavy economy where the 1% own more than the 99%, this, unfortunately, might be useful information to know...

    Richest 1% on target to own two-thirds of all wealth by 2030

    Welcome to the UK, half of England belongs to the royal family and Scotlands their holiday home, all so that effete fucking wankers can feel important, thankfully land reform acts are coming into place to take it back.

    Theres actually a Danish guy that owns far too much of Scotland, and whilst I'm sure his conservation efforts are appreciated, I dont condone selling half my country to random rich people.

    A sad, but interesting, coincidence - three of his children were killed in the Sri Lanka bombings.

    I’m willing to bet you no one in the 1% knows MMO Champion exists or has 10,000 posts.

    That is not a coincidence.
