What is Really Happening to Britain……Summer 2013….
By Anonymous July 28th 2013.
GDP still 3.3% below the peak in 2008.
The longest/ slowest recovery from recession in a century.
Real wages on average 8-9% lower.
Around 500,000 additional children pushed into poverty since the Coalition came to power.
Homelessness at record levels.
Many on benefits having suffered cuts in real income of over 40%.
Public services decimated, leading to real hardship and deaths among the most vulnerable.
And the super-rich have got richer.
Austerity is still failing any anyone who claims otherwise is a fool or a knave and quite probably both.
