Considering inequality in Britain
The ONS's report makes clear that life expectancy is very much a 'north south' affair in that the data indicates that those in the poorer north tend to live shorter lives than those who live in the more prosperous south.
The Costs of Inequality
makes the point that though relative to past generations we have become Omega Seamaster 50s wealthier, the gap between the rich and poor has 'spiralled [.] like a chasm' in the last forty years to the extent that in this country the richest one hundred people are worth as much as the poorest 30% of all households (approximately 18,900,000 people).

"We used to be as equal as a place like Sweden, but that has changed dramatically in the past few years. You just need to look at cities like London, where few people can afford a house because of a tiny handful of people who can afford to buy three."
suggests that as well as recognising the costs we should demand that our politicians should do more to address the problem and that there is a need to stop the spiral of hopelessness that will continue to increase.

There is a quotation by Bob Dylan that goes along the lines that however much we talk about equality we all end up the same way; dead.
Many argue that inequality is socially destructive and that as we move to short term and so called 'zero hours' contracts there is a sense that even if you are employed you may still experience deprivation.

As Duncan Exley, who is the chief executive of the Equality trust believes that the current rhetoric of gaining employment and working to better oneself is not helpful in the current climate in which, most especially for the young, entry level jobs are so poorly paid and offer low prospects for advancement.
As the latest data published by the Office for National Statistics shows, research carried out by Griffiths and Fitzpatrick (2001) and woods, et al. (2005) demonstrated that where you are born and the prospects you enjoy in terms of education and jobs will strongly influence your health and well being and the time of our death.

Let's face it, accounts of poverty and injustice are included in publications going back millennia and repeated ever since; especially in the works of Charles Dickens.
asserts that poverty and deprivation not only afflicts the poorest but must be borne by all of society.
As always there are anomalies and even in the capital which is regarded as extremely affluent it is not hard to witness poverty and deprivation.

Whilst death (and taxes) are said to be unavoidable, the amount of time we have before the former occurs is shown by research to be hugely influenced by the area in which we live and, more particularly, by the deprivation that exists.

Exley also alludes to the problem that we have where housing is currently increasing at a rate that means those on low and middle income are effectively excluded:
