The Brookings Institution in the US found that if you did these 3 things, you will escape poverty and have over 75 per chance of joining the middle class.

1. Finish high school
2. Hold down a job
3. Have children when you are over 21 or married

The poor are better off with the conservative principles of taking individual responsibility and not the socialist model of being dependent on welfare.

Do the brookings institute do a course in rocket science?

It highlights the fact that most people are the victims of their own decision making.
Perhaps most people should focus on improving themselves in small ways rather than spending energy playing the victim, even if they have been the victim of a poor upbringing.

On a note about the nhs and its reason for being.
I beleived it was to make sick people better, not keep people alive.
Bit blunt i know but an absolute shed load must be spent keeping people alive rather than letting nature take its course. This sadly is predominantly older peopke but we all got it coming.

Not just the old; there are probably just as many babies, especially premature ones, kept alive artificially when nature would have taken a different course, and statistics show that these will, in most cases, also be a lifelong drain on the NHS from on-going problems . Can't see that one being popular though.

Raw data doesn't give a clear picture when you have housing cost disparities like we do. A small flat in London rents for more than a three bed house in South Wales.

so why does London still seem to be full of Social Housing and some anti-social types living in it ?

i thought the Tory 'benefits cap' would make a difference.

Oh behave, their answer to poverty in the US is go to school and get a job? Hardly reinventing the wheel

I wasn't thinking of social housing, more the main rental market.

the friction of the deserving poor and the un-deserving poor goes as far back as the Tudor Period. Cardinal Wollsey introducded the law where vagrants could be put in stocks whip or have their noses spit. Some of the unforutnate vagrants were return saliors and soldiers from the wars with france/spain. Not suggesting we go back to those day for a minute only highlighting ever generation deals with problem in thwe way of the period. Clearly the old benefits system was to complicated PIP are an atempt to make for simpler system it will take time for ppl to adjust.

it takes a scumbag just ten seconds to figure out the loopholes in any new regime. And thence he can ride the system with alacrity.

What a pity that is the best you could do.

Agreed.
But those who decide 'the system' always take far far more.
