Anyhoo. There are figures showing that more people are in need of help than ever in the last 10 years, and it's getting worse. So we can complain about how this information is presented and by whom if we want, but that's what the powers would be would love us to do...
As Keith said though what was labours excuse for not even bothering ?

Isn't this their very core message....

Or was this purely for the few, not the many....

I agree about labour though. They love this type of bollocks and even they canít be arsed. Our elected representative are arseholes in the main.

It helps no one to redefine poverty this way. Concentrate on people in actual poverty and maintain credibility.
Point of order:

Taking into account a commensurate increase in inflation, the povs' buying power would remain relatively low.

We can moan about our MPs for lots of well founded reasons, but ultimately they shouldn't be threatened by neo-Nazi thugs just for doing their job.

There is no commensurate rise in inflation in the scenario. Itís simply to demonstrate the poverty (aha ha ha) of the concept.

Not keen on neo nazis, but very keen on certain MPs being threatened

What do you mean Ďthere would beí? Itís never going to happen. And itís my scenario so I say itís not. In fact, thereís deflation. You should try some deflation you stupid fat pig.

Get your own scenario.

Listen, shit for brains. It's either the way it is or the way it could be. You're describing the way it couldn't be.

I see what you're trying to say, if that helps.

Everyoneís wage being doubled at a stroke isnít meant to be a real world scenario. So, no, it couldnít be. Inflation or not.

The point, you fucking retard, is that when we talk about relative poverty. we're talking about BUYING POWER.

This is inextricably linked to inflation.

Your scenario removes inflation from the picture. So not only is it outlandish, as you freely admit, it is in fact utterly invalid.

We can't even accept it warts and all. It is the reasoning of a fucking child.

CUNT.
