Nicely made point on poverty

So, on the official EU measurements there is “more poverty” in this country than in Poland. That is what happens when you misdescribe inequality as poverty. As Professor Saunders mordantly observes: “The people in Britain who get defined as poor actually enjoy a standard of living far higher than most Poles. Polish workers move to Britain in search of a higher standard of living, but, according to the EU, they make themselves poorer when they do so.”

  1. Yet another reason to get out of the EUSSR.
    You can prove anything with tractor stats.
    Then tax us to sort out”the problem”.

    Either all the Poles in this country are crazy. Or the EU is. My money is on the EU.
