The majority of poverty in the UK is like an amazing life in 3rd world countries.......

There are 8 million living in poverty sadly

I don't doubt for one minute that we have real poverty in this country but I do believe we have people that plead poverty but a look into their lifestyles tells a different story.
For those with nothing to do and no structure in their life they may be the type of person who occupies their time by watching Netflix/Sky smoking drinking even possibly betting. They might be the person who's fallen into a rut and can't be bothered to cook anymore and eats unhealthily. Now I'm not for one minute saying this is the case for all people out of work but I know these type of people exist. For them they have never known a life without what I've mentioned and to them they see them as basic everyday needs rather than luxuries. Those type of people mask the figures and take away resources needed for real genuine people in poverty.

Those are valid questions but the answers could be changed.

The area where people live is not beneficial to there future. Leave then.

Lack of jobs. Again, leave.

If there is jobs available in the area, educate yourself to apply for them rather than blaming the system or colour of your skin.

What should we do.......go fishing ......

Sounds like the easiest option to me

Jokes aside. I think itís a valid point though, there is a LOT more for governments to acknowledge and look into, more than just what people alone can influence sadly

It makes for interesting reading.

So were saying the area where people live is not beneficial for their future, I tend to agree

There is a distinct lack of job opportunities. I agree

People do not have the education or skills to fill the jobs that are available?

Black, white and yellow people, all lives matter

There are 8 million living in poverty sadly

What should we do?

Those stats are real. There's a problem and it's not working. Hence a movement for change.

Maybe we should all do a zoom call.

Obviously it isnít and like scozza says, thereís generations of it going on. I mentioned my mums a retired teacher and some of the kids plans were to get pregnant at 15/16 so they can get a council house, etc. Encouraged by their parents.

Removing benefits and implementing some form of stamp system that means you can claim differing amounts depending on what youíve put in via taxes would be a fair way to do it. So if youíve paid 20 years in taxes and need the support whilst looking for a new job you can get a decent amount not a pittance so your bills can be paid or whatever. If you havenít paid any taxes then you get next to nothing, encouraging you to find work.

There's over 8 million working people in poverty in this country after Osbourne's austerity. Great life! Get the 8 millions wages up the dole figure will fall.

So sponging and getting away with it is a perfectly acceptable way of life?
