Wikipedia: Page one of Google UK for 99% of searches

There’s been a lot of questions in blogs for ages wondering why Google loves Wikipedia so much and why it is so dominant in Google and how dominant it actually is. Everything we search for in Google seems to have Wikipedia on at least page one.
Wikipedia is a vast site with millions of pages and thousands of editors offering unique vital content on multitudes of subject matters. But should Wikipedia be the de-facto resource for pretty much all subjects? Surely some pages are riding on the back of other quality pages or perhaps lazy references to the site from businesses and bloggers across the internet. Google obviously loves Wikipedia and still ranks it despite there being next to zero content on some of the pages.
