Some Christmas facts

Merry Christmas to everyone. However, on this day of celebration, I think it's worth remembering some facts about the nation and the society we live in so that, perhaps, in 2013 some more people might try and make things better.

In modern day Great Britain:
  • 4 million live in food poverty
  • 1 in 4 children live in poverty
  • The gap between average male and average female pay is £5,600
  • Black people are 28 times more likely to be stopped and searched by police
  • The unemployment rate for white women is 6.8%
  • The unemployment rate for Pakistani and Bangladeshi women is 20.%
  • Disability hate crime has risen 75% in the past two years

Post a Comment

I'm indebted to Birkdale Focus for the following choice of words:

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
