Not my words, but it’s all about the rising poverty in the UK.
“I predict a RIOT” LBC host Ian Collins warns rising poverty could lead to unrest.
A RADIO presenter has hit out against surging levels of poverty in Britain saying a “dirty national rebellion” was on its way.
So what’s he basing this on?
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation said poverty in the UK had increased by four million to 19 million over the past six years. (That’s coincides exactly with the Tory government’s “Austerity plans”).
They got that right and as for child poverty?
There are currently 3.7 million children living in poverty in the UK. That’s over a quarter of all children. 1.7 million of these children are living in severe poverty. . In the UK 63% of children living in poverty are in a family where someone works. (Barnados)
Add homelessness, rents rising, zero hours contracts being the industry preferred way of hiring people (meaning if you aren’t offered work you don’t get paid), cut backs to welfare and tax relief for the poorly paid, the sick being declared fit ot work then being totally unreasonable by dying before they can start, inflation at 2.3% and rising (but more realistically 4% on the supermarket shelves), public utility bills soaring, local taxation, and fuel prices (despite supermarket petrol wars which do nothing to help people HEAT THEIR HOMES or COOK.
I’d say Ian Collins is bang on.
Even better is it’s coming into Spring and Summer.
What better time to burn the place down!
Let me see, 1 liter bottle, half petrol, third fuel oil, torn up old clothing, and my trusty Zippo. Yep, good to go!
