Here’s how it’s being reported in Australia.
Of course, setting the poverty line at 60% of median income is a typical lefty linguistic trick.
Poverty is starvation. Being only 60% as rich as the averge person is envy.
Still, relative to 30 other First World nations, New Zealand’s performance is shameful:
20th for children living in poor households
21st for infant mortality
29th for measles immunisation rates
29th for child health and safety
3oth for teen suicides.
Thanks Ross for sending me this clipping.
