In 1980 an average property in London cost £24,000. Year by year, the price increased in an average rhythm of 7%. The same type of property now costs £223,257. The price multiplied by almost 9.5 times.

In the last decade, median individual annual earnings in Britain rose by 68%, whilst the house prices grew by 259%. The inequity is the real gap between generations.
