The salary question is an interesting one. As I was pointing out to my mum yesterday, £80k won't get you a mortgage to buy somewhere in London though you could get a house in some areas of the country for for cash just saving a few months income. I had a basic of £80k for a (very) short period in 2000. I didn't consider myself "rich", but "comfortable" maybe. As it was I went bankrupt in 2003, so that that status didn't last long.

Between myself and my husband our household earns about £80K before tax. I don't think of ourselves as wealthy but I also understand that by many people's definition we are as we go to London to see plays at least once a month and have disposable income to spend on board games and lego etc

The lack of insight many people who are moderately or very wealthy into the realities of living closer to the poverty line is a difficult problem and one I don't know the best way to solve it
