I'm sixty seven and I can't remember not living in poverty, the harder you work the more they take off you. Now I don't work and they hammer my pension with their over the top taxes and at the same time raise food and heating prices, whilst giving themselves huge obscene pay rises. The figure has always been one in four, because that's how they want it, as long as the Banksters get their profits from the government they have no interest in the welfare of the working peasantry. It will only change if Britain adopts the Bradbury pound which was first issued at the start of WW1, and was very succesful.No debt no tax.

The money powers promote African and Asian immigration to suppress worker’s wages.
