|LONDON Nike Air Force 1 Shoes , May 7 (Xinhua) -- The wealth of Britain's 1,000 richest people has been boosted in the past year by 14 percent, fuelled by the country's decision to quit the European Union.
The annual rich list published Sunday revealed the total wealth of the richest people has gone up in the past 12 months by 83 billion pounds (108 billion U.S. dollars) to a record 658 billion pounds (855 billion U.S. dollars).
The list, published by the Sunday Times, revealed that London has 86 billionaires Nike Air Force 1 Ultra , more than any other city in the world.
It also showed that 19 of the country's mega rich have seen their wealth grow in the past year by a billion pounds or more.
"The astonishing strength of this year's Rich List defies expectations that wealth would stall in the lead up to last summer's EU referendum and then crash after the decision to leave the EU," said the newspaper in its editorial.
Instead a buoyant stock market has propelled the fortunes of many business leaders and entrepreneurs, the report added.
The list is headed by the Indian-born brothers Sri and Gopi Hinduja who have seen their wealth from property, oil, plastics and finance surge by 3.2 billion pounds (4.15 billion U.S. dollars) to 16.2 billion pounds (21 billion U.S. dollars).
The Sunday Times said this year the wealthiest people required a record 110 million pounds (143 million U.S.dollars) to break into the elite top 1 Nike Air Force 1 Low ,000.
The list coincided with a poll by YouGov for the newspaper showing that people considered an annual salary of 100,000 pounds (130,000 U.S. dollars) was enough to be considered as rich.
The poll also showed most people believe the super rich should pay higher taxes.

Rowling is one of a record 130 women to reach the top 1,000 rich list.
Alastair McCall Nike Air Force 1 High , who edited the Rich List, said: "While many of us worried about the outcome of the EU referendum, many of Britain's richest people just kept calm and carried on making billions.
"We expected to see a chilling effect in the run-up to the EU referendum, but that simply did not materialize."
All but one of the top 25 in the list has seen massive increases in their wealth.

JINAN, May 19 (Xinhua) -- China will close its only offshore coal mine, which has been in operation for more than 30 years, in October Nike Air Force 1 Lv8 , as the government toughens its efforts to phase out excess production capacity.
The Beizao Coal Mine, owned by the Shandong Energy Longkou Mining Group in eastern Shandong Province, is located about five kilometers from the coast of Longkou City. Its mine shaft reaches 350 meters underwater.
Li Gongjian, the mine's manager, on Friday confirmed the closure Nike Air Force 1 , adding that it is part of a national move to phase out sub-standard production capacity. Sea mining is not efficient as it has a cost three times higher than mining on land.
He said the sea mine, which covers an area of 18 square km, has produced up to 8 million tonnes of raw coal.
The sea mine, with proven reserves of 1.29 billion tonnes of coal, made China the fifth country to boast offshore exploitation technology.
Li said the mine opened at a time when the country was energy thirsty Cheap Air Force 1 , and the group's coal deposits on land were not sufficient to cope with growing market demand.
The mine shaft was not easy to reach. Miners had to take an elevator down 180 meters and a 20-minute tramcar ride to reach the mine face.
The mine's closure will force 1,580 workers to become laid-off. The company has offered them other positions.
Li said that although the mine will be closed, the company will keep and document the offshore mining technology and experience, as sea mining requires sophisticated safety systems, such as technology to prevent flooding.
