I reblog this to share and pass on to others who might be interested.
I reblog it because the figures, which speak for themselves, might cause a sane and civilised individual to read it twice, just to be sure they read correctly. The United Kingdom is not (yet) a third world economy; rather one of the wealthiest nations on earth. This appears to be the case on the back of an increasing number of persons dispossessed, homeless, sub nourished or for whom National Insurance, into which the waged and salaried have paid since 1948, has failed. It is shameful.
The shameless architects of this misery continue to skim off the cream.
