Study finds London has become a city for the elites

The British capital, London, is now prohibitively expensive for people from less affluent backgrounds, a charity claims.

The stunning claim is made by the Sutton Trust, an education charity established in 1997. The claims are based on a study - commissioned by the charity - entitled Elites in the UK: Pulling Away?

The study is mostly based on the collation and analysis of data from the Office for Longitudinal Study, and it is focused on the social mobility patterns of Britons born in the 1970s.

Commenting on the study, Sir Peter Lampl, who is the founder and chairman of the Sutton Trust, said that since the 1980s "London has cemented its position as the epicenrtre of the elites".

Lampl added that the capital is "essentially off-limits to ambitious people from poorer backgrounds who grow up outside the capital".

Global city?

One aspect of the London story which the Sutton Trust study hasnít covered is the long-term impact of consistently trying to brand London as a "global" city, often to the detriment of ordinary Britons.

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, was the most ardent champion of that policy, during the two terms he served as London mayor from 2008 to 2016.

The practical effect of the "global" branding has been the attraction of the worldís super-wealthy to London. This has had multiple negative effects particularly in the London property sector, where the global super-rich have been accused of having an inflationary impact on the market.

Dirty cash

Another issue of concern is the transformation of London into a global centre for money laundering as the worldís super-rich take advantage of the UKís relatively lax attitude to ill-gotten gains.

In a hard-hitting opinion piece for the Guardian (October 11, 2018), the veteran British journalist and broadcaster, Simon Jenkins, argued that London is a "safe haven" for the worldís "dirty cash".
