The upsetting reality of modern day poverty
My food budget? About £45 a week. [...] You see, to Jamie Oliver, a £20 shoulder of lamb is "cheap", because it can do two meals and it’s not the leg, so costs less per kilo. Two meals, Jamie? For 20 bloody quid, I want at least four meals. It’s a sad day when I get angry at Jamie Oliver for being a pretentious, arrogant prick. [...] I can’t afford to smoke. I don’t know many people who can. I have bars of soap next to my sinks and I am able to use them to good effect. I am not dirty. I am relatively poor. There is a difference. [...] The reality is eating plain boiled rice and pretending to like it, so the kids don’t know there’s no other food except for what is on their plates. [...] The reality of poverty is the shame of always having to say, “Sorry, I can’t afford it.” [...] I’ll make you a coffee, but only if you don’t have sugar – that’s a luxury we only buy in if we’re going to make a cake.

Iain Duncan Smith sets his sights on mentally ill benefit claimants | News | The National
TOO many people with __“common” mental health problems__ are reliant on the state, [DWP] Iain Duncan Smith claimed yesterday. The Minister was speaking ahead of a major shake-up of the ESA benefit. He claimed the system was too “binary” and argued people with mental health problems would benefit from working. The SNP said his shake-up would force more people into hardship. In the speech, which was behind closed doors, IDS made no policy announcements, rather policy intentions. [...] [ putting it into the light of abuse of the 'system' >> ] Two absolutes equating to one perverse incentive[.] “This needs to change – things are rarely that simplistic. [ he already cut ESA warg ] &! youtu.be/BYAf5DuWaC0 "how much work can u do till u get treatment" - so much abt speech not being policy. never does he mention the stretched NHS&GP system especially mental health services. Will outsource assessment (profiteering) with quotas 2 meet, business as usual. &! bit.ly/1hEFIcS

Study suggests safe alcohol guidance 'unrealistic' - BBC News
But the study found that the guidelines are largely ignored because most people do not drink every day. Instead they drink heavily at the weekend - in order to get drunk.

Porträt ǀ Unten durch — der Freitag
Vor kurzem hat er ein Buch veröffentlicht, das als „Unterschichtenroman“ Aufsehen erregt hat. In einer klaren, nüchternen Sprache schildert er darin seine Erfahrungen als Leiharbeiter, mit prekären Jobs und Beziehungen. Mittlerweile lebt Wall in Berlin-Wedding, nahe der Uferhallen, wo wir uns treffen. Der Ort vereint zwei Welten, das Raue und das Kreative. Passt also. [...] Es geht oft um Fingernägel, Kleidung, Schönheit. Äußerlichkeiten sind wichtig, wenn alles um dich herum hässlich ist.

[ personal differentiation needed because abundance of workers/competition businesses can choose from - that work for the lowest wage possible. creativity is not in abundance. risk takers neither. ] // Jeder fuer sich.
