Scottish Poverty

The BBC is today reporting the findings of a study on Scottish poverty that Socialist Courier bloggers reported last Saturday .

Just to re-iterate , more than 900,000 people in Scotland are living in poverty, including 240,000 children .

Dr Gerry Mooney, from the Open University in Scotland, an editor and contributing author of the CPAG report, warned there was a "marked unwillingness" on the part of government to tackle the causes of inequalities in Scottish society.

Yes - since the real solution calls for an end of the exploitative social system that is Capitalism . And i would be very much surprised if Dr Mooney , himself , goes any further than demanding the tickering with a society that fundamentally cannot be reformed in the interests of the majority .

Only the total abolition of Capitalism will suffice .
