This YouGov poll chart is not necessarily as telling as can be inferred at first glance.

The Scots I can understand - they're noted for their parsimoniousness.

For a start, when the above chart is analysed by age group, it's the very young and the old who are the most altruistic, as they are less likely to be encumbered by mortgages that take up most of their earnings and hence they are the most likely to have said they would forgo some of their salary - they generally have none and the question is academic.

Then there's the fact that a lot of people would not be willing to forgo salary for a mistake on the part of their employers, allowing shareholders to get off scot-free.

The split between North/South is equal, but the split between men and women is heavily in favour of women being willing to give up some of their money - which is a bit strange. I would have thought the poll would be targeted solely at men.

Male Kippers are just selfish bastards, as we all know.
