That BusinessInsider link is useful, thanks, particularly slides #18 and #19 which show that the financial divide is more pronounced in the USA than the UK (or at least it was when those figures were compiled). However, there's not much I can do about America's problems.
My main concern about the "99%" thing is that it sounds like a conspiracy theory: all our problems come from some shadowy elite who control everything. If the cause is different in the UK then the solution may be different as well.
Thanks for the Google tip too. My initial search was for "99% 1%" but that just used Google calculator to say "99 mod (1%) = 0". It's possible that this reveals some deep philosophical truth about the way that the groups depend on each other, but I decided to ignore it :)
