Cost of living crisis, strikes... class war?

How's that for a sensationalist subject? :angel:

Some associated topics that may remain prominent for awhile... however right now I just wanted to share this rather striking graph.

GB inequality more severe than US and widening... :o

Well nothing really surprising, It seems to be consistent that since Brexit and under this government the UK has been worse of Than most other major countries.
UK productivity was 16% below the average of the rest of the G7 countries, the largest since at least 1995 (when the ONS data series began). More recent evidence from the OECD showed that the UK’s productivity gap with the G7 average is not as great as previously thought, due to the different ways countries measure hours worked.
