It would be a terrible indictment if New Labour left office with child poverty and inequality both rising.
Of course they move in tandem! For they are the same thing!
Child poverty is measured as relative poverty: it\’s a measure of inequality.
It\’s one thing to argue that it\’s terribly important, as I don\’t, or that it\’s not very important, as I do, but for a professor to not note that they are the same thing simply makes that professor a seeming fool.
