UN’s damning verdict on poverty in Britain, released today via Philip Alston:
“British compassion for those who are suffering has been replaced by a punitive, mean-spirited, and often callous approach… The Tory government has created a highly combustible situation that will have dire consequences. Poverty is a political choice. Austerity could easily have spared the poor, if the political will had existed to do so.”
The Conservative government will continue these cruel policies until they are voted out at the next general election.
