AskTen - Ten amazing things you may not have known last week
http://askten.co.uk


1. The Social Progress Index, which includes factors other than economic makers such as GDP, ranks Britain 13th – ahead of Japan, France and the US. We come top for education (thanks to our universities), freedom of speech and assembly, and bottom for malnutrition. We rank low on press freedom and fare badly for obesity, too. The Observer

2. Six out of 10 graduates will not earn enough to repay their student loans. In the current system, you start repaying your debt at a rate of £30 per month when you earn at least £16,910 a year. Given that the average debt is £44,000, this means the government could be waiting 122 years to get its money back. Sunday Times

3. Property ownership has fallen to its lowest level since 1987, according to official figures. In 2003, when home ownership in the UK peaked, 71% of Britons lived in homes they owned. However, last year the figure dropped to 65.2%. The number of people renting homes nearly doubled from 2.2m in 2002/03, to 3.9m last year. Daily Express

4. 41% of British 18 to 30-year-olds are “always positive and make the best out of every situation”. 27% say their vision for success is best described by “earning lots of money”; if given €10,000 (£8,240), 22% say they would use the money to start their own business. Daily Telegraph

5. Councils in England and Wales hit motorists with an estimated 7.8m parking tickets last year – the equivalent of one every four seconds. St Edmundsbury borough council in Suffolk issued 9,442 tickets last year, against 1,652 in 2012 – a 472% increase. Sunday Times

6. Tony Blair’s son Euan is planning to stand for parliament and targeting one of Labour’s safest seats for the next general election. He is believed to have his eye on Bootle, Merseyside, which is not far from his mother Cherie’s childhood home. However, a Labour source says it would be a “disaster” if the “heir to Blair” stood. Daily Mail

7. Ukip has received its highest-ever polling position. In a ComRes poll, Nigel Farage’s party is on 20%, up four points from last month. The Tories, hit by the Maria Miller scandal, are down three to 29%, their lowest rating this year. Labour remains unchanged on 35%, with the Liberal Democrats on a lowly 7%. Independent On Sunday

8. The Beverly House off Sunset Boulevard, where they filmed The Godfather scene involving the decapitated head of a horse, is up for sale. The house is priced at £81m. “But a local wit suggests: ‘Make them an offer they can’t refuse’.” Daily Mail

9. The average annual income Britons think they need to be earning in order to experience a happy life is £83,000. The average UK salary is £26,500. BBC

10. The number of credit cards in issue in Britain now stands at 56,000,000, which accounts for 70% of all European credit cards. Financial Times
