The UK is the world’s fifth richest country

Truthfullness 3 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


Full Fact says:

“In terms of total GDP, the UK is the sixth- or ninth-richest, depending on which measure you use. It may be more relevant to look at GDP per person, as Mr Corbyn is making a point about inequality, although this also has drawbacks.  On this measure, the UK is 20th or 27th richest.”

Do you agree this deserves 3 / 5 for truthfullness?

In the interest of impartiality, if you disagree please leave a comment below.
No promises to change the rating but it will be considered.
