LIVING IN CORNWALL ON £9000 A YEAR
21 September 2011
We’re all in this together, the government says. It’s tough but we’re all suffering. Hmm.
Maybe. But not equally, of course.
This report (September 2011) by the insurance company Aviva says, among many interesting things, that around a quarter of people in Britain over fifty five are living on about £9000 a year. Out of that comes food, for many rent or mortgage, energy and water bills, council tax …
Extrapolated to Cornwall that’s about 45 000 people here.
Fair funding anyone?
