I would have said this article was behind the times, because Vox Political mentioned increases in absolute poverty a couple of weeks ago. The difference is that, it seems, the DWP press release claimed disability poverty was down by 100,000 – but am I right in thinking this report is saying that’s RELATIVE poverty, whereas ABSOLUTE poverty was up by the same amount?
In other words, the DWP has been cooking the books YET AGAIN?
How long do we have to endure this continual deceitfulness from an organisation that should be legally bound to produce the facts, in full?
