In the process inequality, with all the dire social consequences that can flow from it, is increasing.

Is it? ONS tells us that the Gini is lower now than it was in 2008. Global inequality is obviously decreasing as the absolutely poor – finally – get rich.

So which inequality is increasing?

  1. In the process inequality, with all the dire social consequences that can flow from it, is increasing.

    Translation: The Great Dick Tater’s bank balance is in the shitter.

  2. ‘Inequality’ is meaningless totalist language. You are to accept socialism because you are against ‘inequality.’

    ‘all the dire social consequences that can flow from it’

    Cultural Marxist diarrhea of the mouth.

  3. The inequality that they can see all around them. That isn’t actually backed up by much except anecdata.

    That the implementation of Universal refit has been a bit of a disaster (like pretty much every other large government IT project) has clearly led to increased inequality. That pretty much the same people are on pretty much the same level of benefits doesn’t cut the compassion mustard the same way as horror stories about (always single) mums having to go without food to feed the (usually at least pre-obese) kids in the (stupid to the point of insanity) five week “implementation gap” between the last payment of weekly benefits and the first payment of monthly UC.

    The purported 1000% rise in the use of food banks. Driven by the bureaucratic inflexibility of the UK benefits system (‘cause we all want the government to run more of our lives because it is so great at running the things it already does) to some extent but also by the fact there are far more of them around than there used to be (little platoons, etc).

    I would rant on but I’ve got to go and explain how the world actually works to a Deloittes minion.
