It appears that data is from 2013. It's anyhow pointless to compare the UK with the rest of Europe, where the difference in Gini coefficient are in any case small enough to be rendered almost meaningless in real terms. It's far more useful to compare to how inequality has progressed in the UKcomparison to what it was in the past.

They key question is would Labour's policies solve inequality? Well if making everyone poor is a solution, then perhaps they might! History tells us though that Labour leave office with debt, unemployment and recession, and this is before Jeremy Corbyn's policies are factored in. The poor will get poorer under Jeremy Corbyn's Labour.
This has been a party political broadcast on behalf of the Conservative Party.

Income inequality is only part of the equation - care to venture some stats on wealth inequality TC?
