Below the poverty line

By 2013 there will be 3.1 million children in poverty in the UK, according to the IFS projections. The slope is getting more and more slippery and the economy doesn't seem to recover. Where and when will it stop?

IFS briefing on child & working age poverty this morning: 1. "almost inconceivable that Gov. child poverty targets are going to be met"

Is there a need to mention the word recession or economic downturn?

We all thought it was over?!

Apparently, the tunnel is stretching and the light is still not visible according to some reports.

Disappointing and depressing news for the year(s) to come.

Some people started to switch bank accounts to find a better deal for their savings.

...The IFS forecasts two years "dominated by a large decline" in incomes, pushing 600,000 more children into poverty... (source: BBC News)

So, better get ready for the rainy days!

Remember this (worrying) interview?
