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.
Not really.

Fact is according to most studies and comparisons (there will always be 1 or 2 outliers), the UK consistently scores amongst the very worst developed countries for income or wealth distribution and for social mobility.

Absolute worst is generally the US by the way.
