Servicing Debt:

According to uSwitch Britain is suffering from a bad case of affluenza – “we are caught in the grip of a spiral of conspicuous consumption where it’s no longer enough to keep up with the Joneses, but instead we want to live like our favourite celebrities”. 4.8m adults spend more than they earn and 9m adults just break even at the end of every month.

A quick search revealed this. Not up to date figures though.

For consumers, total repayments (interest plus principal) are around £8bn per month across 12 million mortgages - an average of £670 or so per month for mortgaged households. Was around £1000 per month at the start of 08. Soon to go back there in my opinion. Most of the above stats have not changed. The 1/5th to 2/5th over £100k has increased.
