Poverty and health

The connection between poverty and ill-health is self-evident. The poor suffer more from chronic disease, and die younger.

So it seems extraordinary that a Labour government lead by Gordon Brown have decided to increase the taxes paid by the poorest, by abolishing the 10% starting rate of income tax; and they always pretend to have the interests of the weakest in society at heart.

The Labour Party has NEVER favoured the working poor.
They will support those that will not work with all sorts of credits and free services.
But once you work, nothing at all.
