    That depends on which biased/manipulated set of statistics you've read best supports your belief system

    The rich are going to get richer at the expense of the poor people.
    Food bank usage is at an all time high, and for the 5th or 6th richest economy in the world, it is pretty shocking.

    I don’t think Corbyn was the best choice for the labour leader, but quite frankly the combination of Trump (an English slang word for a fart) and Johnson (an American slang word for a penis) scares me silly.

    Time will tell if Brexit is a good idea or not, but one of the main reasons of people pushing for Brexit was due to the change in law regarding offshore investment declarations. The rich people in the U.K. are against this, and have managed to convince ce the population that Brexit is a good thing.

    We will see, but if it is not good, then it is too late to go back cap in hand to rejoin the EU.
    I am also wondering where these new trade eats are, as we already have trade deals with the majority of the trading blocks.

    Can we please stop trying to use facts when people are venting anecdotal bias, they just cloud the issue

    I think you will find if you care to look it up that more revenue is collected from Scotland than is paid in.

    Interesting comment about food banks, have you wondered why they are used so much?

    I see from your location you're from Bristol so are probably familiar with Southmead?
    My wife used to work in a school on the estate where a significant proportion of pupils were arriving at school having had no breakfast as there was no food in the house. The really shocking part is that they were picked up from school by parents wearing £100 trainers, lots of tattoos (not cheap) and very often already half pissed at 3pm.

    This is a fact witnessed first hand on a regular basis by my wife not a daily mail headline

    No that's just how you're reading things through the eyes of your entrenched biases, and besides what you're agreeing with is factually wrong.

    Then they're just as bad as fat cats living off the cream, created by the Tory policies of looking after the rich. I'd jail the wankers you describe for 6 months, if I caught them, and then make them work in soup kitchens, throughout the UK, for a year, just so they could see first hand what it's like to be genuinely poor!

    *But* the odious actions of those parasites is not the main reason why food banks have grown in number recently.
