My dear Rupert,

You said:

"He spoke equality and poverty in the UK today. Equality, what do people want ? do they want the workshy and the lazy to enjoy the same lifestyle as those who worked hard all their lives?"

and then you said

"Many speak of poverty in the UK today. Yes there is poverty, it is among those who work for a living and don't feed off the state for their rent, mortgage and council tax."


So you have answered your own question haven't you.

if there are "those working for a living" in "poverty", then it follows that there is a serious problem of inequality.
