Who owns us now?
HAVE you ever wondered how much we are owned by foreign companies, following the relaxation of ownership rules by the Government?
Recently, the Office of National Statistics announced that 53.2 per cent of Britain’s £1.8 trillion market is owned by foreign investors.
Twenty years ago the figure was less than 20 per cent and even in 2010 it was only 43.4 per cent.
So how much will be British-owned in another 20 years?
