    I doubt it's a joke. The Daily Fail doesn't do jokes.

      Sadly there are people out there who really think like this. Poverty to them means only owning one house. Even more sadly these are roughly the kind of people presently in government.

      I got massively angry when I first read it... it's also exactly like an article she wrote in the summer.

      Hate to do this, but I just wrote about it here:

      I reckon there's a slim chance she's a nice liberal attempting to take down the Mail from the inside by filling it with idiotic articles :p:

      I actually feel sorry for them. Yes, you lot might laugh, but it would be horrible to lose everything. I'd hate it if that happened to me.

      "Another mum, with three grown-up children, told me that five years ago she would go to H&M as a matter of course for cheap and quirky clothes, but now she finds herself baulking at the prices" See this? That's really upsetting.

      PLEASE tell me you're joking. "Lose everything"? Did you see that she has three places to live?

      Not being able to afford to buy your spoilt little kid an iPad for Christmas is not poverty.
