[ trying to pit the weak and squeezed against the weaker, on the the dole, and bread line and disadvantaged (born into extreme poverty) ] // The budget took us further down a vindictive, regressive path. But we don’t have to toe the government’s line – we need to decide how we want society to look // [ Book owen Jones - The Establishment ] // [ cutting away left and right, even those things which help long-term creating opportunity - eduction policy, vocational education, (Student Maintenance Grant) social services, mental health and well being ... ] [...] To attack first entails retaking the language, so that we aren’t constantly battling on the territory of “common sense” that has already been demarcated and controlled by someone else. Professor Danny Dorling, at the British Library’s weekend conference on London, had this suggestion, in the wake of Osborne’s appropriation of the phrase “living wage”. [ Same with re-appropriating child poverty targets ] [ intellectual scum ]
