A sorry state

Well, here's some cheery news in the run-up to the festive period: a fifth of the UK population is now living in poverty, according to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. As poverty levels increase and the inequality gap widens, the finger of blame is being pointed squarely at the Tories' welfare policies, in conjunction with rising prices. The situation is so severe and concerning that "the entire board of [Theresa May's] social mobility commission quit over the weekend" in frustration and protest.

Reassuring to think that we're cutting ourselves adrift from Europe to be left at the mercy of these utter fuckers, isn't it?
