Inequality in UK was growing before recession, even in north

That’s the headline in The Guardian:

A report published by the Institute for Public Policy Research North shows polarisation between rich and poor was rising even before the recession of 2008 took hold…

The greatest disparities are found in London, where the top 20% earn £686 more a week than the bottom 20%.
