You can take the donkey to the water but you cannot make it drink.

The new research, conducted by the Transport Research Institute (TRI) at Edinburgh Napier University, in conjunction with Public Health Wales, estimates a new default 20mph speed limit on residential roads across Wales will save around £100m in the first year alone. The estimated cost saving is the direct result of fewer deaths and injuries.


What effect will the speed limit have on journey times?

Journey times on roads in urban areas tend to be determined by junctions and signals, rather than the speed limit. In many cases lowering the speed limit to 20mph will have little or no impact on journey times. Where there is an impact, our analysis showed us that the average journey would only be around 1 minute longer but this would make the roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

Are these the same people that said MUP in Scotland would save thousands of lives but it in fact increased alcohol related deaths...? :lol:

What a Mong... :roll:

By your reasoning (to save just one life) we should extend 20mph limits to all roads!

Hell, why not 1mph limits, that would save even more lives! :roll:

Plus of course banning every other human activity that sometimes results in death, Rugby, Flying, Booze, etc. Don't loads of people die every year when the alarm clock goes off? BAN THEM!

Absolute poverty is a level of poverty where people struggle to meet daily needs, such as food, shelter, sanitation and healthcare. In the UK, absolute poverty is measured by comparing household income to a fixed threshold, which is 60 per cent of the median income in 2010-2011. According to the latest statistics, 2.4 million children were living in absolute poverty in the UK (before housing costs) in 2019-2020.

Yesterday The Swine announced that they are increasing the minimum living wage to just over 11 pounds an hour and also claim at the same time that this will take 2 million people out of absolute poverty.

The only question left is how many people in UK live in absolute poverty?

As of 2021/22, approximately 8.93 million people were living in absolute poverty in the United Kingdom1. This number increases to over 11.4 million when housing costs are considered. Around 13% of people in the UK were in absolute low income before housing costs in 2021/22, and 17% were in absolute low income (absolute poverty) after housing costs.

In 2021/22, approximately:
3.31 million children in the United Kingdom were living in absolute poverty after housing costs were considered.
6.64 million working-age adults were living in absolute poverty after housing costs were considered.
1.44 million pensioners were living in absolute poverty after housing costs were considered.

That isn't absolute poverty is it then you mong, it is relative poverty... :roll:

Absolute poverty refers to when a person or household does not have the minimum amount of income needed to meet the minimum living requirements needed over an extended period of time. In other words, they cannot meet their basic needs.


FFS, get the basics right...

Relative poverty

is a condition where household income is below a certain percentage of the median income. This means that people in relative poverty have some money, but not enough to afford more than the basic necessities. Relative poverty is not fixed, but varies depending on the economic growth of the country. For example, the threshold for relative poverty could be set at 50% or 60% of the median income

Precisely! So why did you refer to it as Absolute Poverty...? :?

Or did you just cut-n-paste it from one of your lefty-media sites that fills your little head with all those silly socialist ideas...? :roll:

Need I say more?

But as thick as these Swine are, they do come up with some good solutions accidently sometimes. For instance, he wants to ban all cars. Well that may well be a good idea but not a practical one. There is a better way to solve the transport problem. After all Transport is a service and just as in NHS, why can't we have an Integrated Transport Service free at the point of use to travel where ever they wish when ever they wish and then let see who wants to use a car. Rather than this chaotic Private transport shit we have now. Given the choice you can select which you prefer, just like NHS or Private as it were.

This will blow our Swine friends' mind out of the water. Here is a new poverty term.

Very deep poverty" and "in-work poverty"

The 490,000 people in very deep poverty account for about one in 10 people in Scotland - an increase of 300,000 since the last report in March.
This is classified as having below 40% of the median household income after housing costs are taken into account.




Shove that up your jagsi and light it up baby.
