Poverty in the UK Systematic and Tragic

The report comes after Prof Alston visited UK towns and cities and made preliminary findings last November.
The government said his final report was "barely believable".
The £95bn spent on welfare and the maintenance of the state pension showed the government took tackling poverty "extremely seriously", a spokesman for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) said.

I think we all kind of knew this was probably the case, it seems only that the elite and responsible have been deliberately averting their eyes and believing their own lies.

The Chancellor of the exchequer said austerity was over didn't he ... Well time to put some cash into disability ... Schools ... hospitals and the like...

Siding with the vile and corrupt in a snide way. Who would have thought.

Why are these people spending their time criticising the UK when half the countries in the world are controlled by despotic homicidal maniacs.

Could it be we're the only ones civilised enough to listen to them. Its all bollocks.

In other news the UN have now decided the UK should give the Chagos Islands to Mauritius. There's no logic to it other than UK bashing.


Its become an anti-Semitic organisation that hates the west. We should remind some of these wankers who is sending them money.

Ok. It's the UK, amongst others, that sends money to the UN.

Anti colonialism and the notion of self rule. It's hard to argue that the UK should be independent whilst holding gotten territory. The decision should be the choice of the islanders to make alone

Because were capable of focusing on problems and issues involving more than one conundrum. The problem of poverty in the UK is also of more significance to the UK than Saudi human rights

I doubt it's about making himself famous. If it were all lies and fabrication you'd expect the press to tear it apart. Unfortunately we.do know it to be true. The issue of wages vs costs, the.rise of food banks, the housing crisis and massive reductions in public services are well known and documented.

These all have real world consequences

I saw on the news today the number of people on low wages (whatever that means) is at its lowest since 1980.

No one ever produces a report that says everything is fine and dandy. Theyd never be asked to do another.

Please take your head out of your bottom and actually look at the world around you. This country actively exploits the poor and puts profit before everything else.
Since when did a spreadsheet inspire a true community?
You support Palace because you want to, not because the numbers add up ... or there is a five year plan.
Everything may not be 'fine and dandy' but I still believe.
And it is sharing that belief that enables me as a person, not some arbitrary numbers that says we should be better ... on paper.

What? so everything is in fact fine and dandy and any report that says it isnít only says that because the report writer wants to asked to write another report at some time in the future?

Yes it's all the messengers fault. Oh, and his or her employer's.
