    Of course you won't. If the average weekly income goes up, more people will be below the poverty line.

    Let me be the first here to say I don't give flying **** about others whatsoever. Most people are lazy, thick chunts, they reap what they can;t be bothered to sow.

    Try booking an electrician. Wait 3 months and pay £300 per day.

    And yet all the "poor" are sitting at home moaning about their lot.

    Went well back in 1945 when the right wing press attacked Labour.

    “It created the welfare state, including the NHS, rebuilt the ruined economy, nationalised a series of industries, whose record was a great deal better than it has been credited with, gave freedom to India, and played a vital role in the creation of Nato,”

    To see @evoespueblo who, along with a powerful movement, has brought so much social progress forced from office by the military is appalling.

    I condemn this coup against the Bolivian people and stand with them for democracy, social justice and independence. #ElMundoConEvo
