Rob j1 you observed
" I'm sorry Ads, but I dont have a lot of patience for people who cant get off their butts to solve their own problems. Sure, there are people who genuinely cant (my wife is vision impaired), but I'm not talking about people in genuine need. I'm talking about the lazy who actively chose to sign on to the dole rather than make something of themselves. Every tax payer is carrying these bums."
Whilst I understand your frustration please bear in mind that social mobility and deprivation is quite a complex area to resolve, so generalisations are again not helpful in this regard to be honest Rob J1....
Apparently the Govt are planning a conference
" The ‘Left Behind Britain’ conference, which is hosted by the Social Mobility Commission and University of Bath, brings together 200 political leaders, policy makers, academics, charities, think tanks, civil servants and business leaders to increase understanding, share knowledge and explore new solutions to one of the greatest challenges facing our country today."
Hopefully more reform measures to follow. Apparently the EU are also analysing this subject matter so it appears a cause for concern across Europe not just in the UK.
The more we comprehend these issues and try to eradicate the stigma attached to such, the lack of self belief, the lack of aspiration, mental health issues that can develop as a consequence of economic and social deprivation from a young age, etc, all factors that can lead to false generalisations and perceptions....., the more chance we have to tackle the issue.
Long overdue, yes, but essential to creating a more civilised and caring society. :)
