    Ten million Brits living below the breadline.

    More than 10m Brits living below breadline, new study reveals


    THE number of British families who are scraping by on less than the minimum income needed to live adequately has soared from 3.8million to 4.7million and more than 10million Brits do not enjoy an acceptable standard of living, figures released yesterday show.

    In a damning indictment of the Coalition’s policies, research carried out for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation found next year’s election is likely to be the first since 1931 where living standards will be lower than at the previous election.

    Researcher Donald Hirsch, whose Loughborough University team surveyed 20 million households, said: “People at the bottom of the pile will not be benefiting from the economic recovery in the foreseeable future.




    Well, the Tories keep telling us that things are looking up, but I guess they must be "looking up" for their own kind as the rest of us still do not feel any improvement in living conditions at all.

    And that is an indictment that the Tories should be forever ashamed of.

    If they get back in next year I will eat my hat and my knickers.

    One of their greatest weaknesses is their inability to keep in touch with the people of this country.

    They live in their ivory towers and think that the rest of us do too.

    The torture that they have inflicted on the weakest members of this society is going to be remembered when they come to ask us for our votes next year.
