I have heard and read a lot on the subject of poverty the last few days and am horrified at some of the depiction and measures for judging complete poverty. One was bringing a child up on an income of less than twenty two thousand pounds this is Utter tripe. The twits who make these figures up are stark raving mad! What planet do they live on? I bought up three kids two went to university and yes it's a few years back we were by those reconings living in poverty BALDERDASH. We have never lived high on the hog but never in poverty. Who makes this rubbish up?
