Interesting ONS report published today about changes in UK income. The Tory government has made some progress in increasing nett disposable income for the poorest fifth of the population, whilst reducing income for the top fifth. Who would have guessed that? Still lots to do, with record numbers of homeless and rough sleepers, insufficient NHS and mental health care funding, and recent cuts in benefits for the very poorest, but despite the impact from enormous headline-grabbing public company CEO pay rises, the overall figures indicate good management of the economy from Osborne and Cameron.
