    Frankly anyone who thinks that there is massive poverty in Britain has no idea what they're talking about.

    That wouldn't be so bad if the feeling that some have accumulated their wealth by less than fair means could also be eliminated. There can be little doubt that however relative poverty is framed in this debate, the wealth 'gap' in the UK continues to widen. Take companies involved in supplying premium call rate numbers, car park 'management', payday loans, gambling machines and any number of other less reputable business models. I'm not sure its so easy to justify "wealth" that has been created this way, and either way up, that's not the same as envy.

    I was talking about this on another forum and another poster produced 'research' from some outfit like the Rowntree trust that showed that in 2014 50% of the kids in the UK were living in poverty..

    Do they really expect anyone to believe this?
