Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
this is the second time in recent days that I see stories about povery in Germany. The survey of the Economist on France last week also flagged the "worrying" poverty numbers for France.

Who the fuck are they kidding? Not that poverty is not a problem, of course it is, but the point is that it is a MUCH SMALLER problem in France and Germany than in the USA or the UK (precisely, I might add, because of the policies these people are hell bent on "reforming), and yet we now only talk about poverty in France or Germany and people end up thinking - becuase that's essentially what's being stated - that there is no poverty in the USA and the UK.

And yes, this pisses me off to no end.
