Spot on

That’s right! The Independant has made the audacious claim that The Poor Spend All The Money. I Mean Isn’t it Obvious?

And to be fair I 100% agree with them.

    Wonderful satire. Well worth the read.

    Mark Steel is always worth reading/listening to/watching. I would recommend anyone to seek out his radio & TV series “The Mark Steel Lectures” and “The Mark Steel Revolution” some of which are available on youtube.

    After all, if there were no poor, there wouldn’t be any poverty. Q.E.D.

    Great one, the notion that ‘the poor spend all their money and the rich save X %’ is a standard talking point in the US, which provides the distortion that the difference between the poor and rich are due to spending habits rather than income. (People forget we classify ‘poor’ or ‘rich’ by income and not by expenditure or quantity of consumer goods possessed.)

    So extreme it’s painfully funny to read. Will have to check into more of this guy’s stuff.
