House of Lords votes to keep income-related child poverty measures | Society | The Guardian
[ trying to redefine poverty! ] Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, announced the proposals in July, prompting dismay among child poverty charities. He said the government would scrap its measurement of child poverty and the aim to eradicate it by 2020, while replacing it with a new duty to report levels of educational attainment, worklessness and addiction. Under his plans, the old measurement, based on the percentage of households with below-average income, would continue to be published as a government statistic but would no longer be seen as a target. However, peers voted by 290 to 198 to keep the targets, in a move to prompt the House of Commons to think again. [...] [ TRICKLE-DOWN! ] David Freud, the welfare minister, opposed the amendment on behalf of the government, saying “life chances” indicators were a better way of monitoring what was happening and of directing resources most effectively to tackle the problem.

Child poverty measurement set to change - BBC News
"We are all in this together." // "In short - can a [Tory gov] that says it is governing for "One Nation" unpick the rules around measuring & cutting the # of poor children in Britain without being accused of cynicism? // &! bit.ly/1GySqhN "The plan sounds reasonable, but the purpose is to whip up confusion at a time when the poor are about to get poorer. [...] “blue-collar Conservatism”, appealing to working-class Tories who are not much interested in such abstractions as relative poverty, but can certainly be rallied against those who are felt to be living at the expense of hard-pressed taxpayers."
