And yet repossessions are low.

Edit: I don't know why 15 an hour is a record as there more in 2009 according to that.

Bit of a strange way of judging how bad things are.

It says Birmingham had 3700, and is in 1st place. Peterborough had 2300, but is only in 8th place. Birmingham must be ten times the size of Peterborough, so isnt really that high.

Doesnt say its per 100k or anything.

Ranking system used is flawed should be done against population of city. Also where's London on that list. Also figures seem to be better than 2009 so doesn't seem a record year.

Looking at Sheffield, with a population around half a million.

3366 insolvencies in 2010, 3423 in 2009.

Consistently 1 in 150 people in Sheffield are going insolvent each year.

Average life expectancy over 75?

50% chance of going insolvent throughout life?

London for the purposes of this list has a population of 11500. Most people in the Greater London area live in other boroughs.
