A rather spectacular moon last night. Sadly, the camera on the phone over exposed it and you can’t see the surface detail.
The guy who set up this crowdfunding campaign- to raise 1.6 billion Euros and bail out Greece- sounds perfectly earnest, and certainly has a more intelligent and realistic take on economics than any of the austerity mad politicians out there.
To help an economy recover we need investment and stimulus, not cuts and austerity.
The proposed new, and (deliberately?) vague, ways of defining child poverty look like yet another attempt to blame the poor for their own plight. There may have been faults in the previous definition- maybe it should have been based upon the Living Wage rather than the moving target of median income- but at least it gave something easily measurable to aim for.
I get the feeling the Tories know they’re failing- even deliberately hurting- the worst off, so they’ll just keep bringing in victim blaming targets and telling us it’s our own fault.
