Yes, but that is consumption vs wealth. How much money do those middle class Brits have in savings compared to middle class Americans with multiple TVs, phones, cars, etc.? Or it's a lifestyle difference. Perhaps it's that the Brits choose not to have multiple TVs, etc., not that they cannot afford them.
