Poverty, of course. The UK chose to follow its daughter country’s trickle down theory and deregulate its economy. The result (unsurprisingly to me who has watched the decline of the U.S.) was economic mayhem: the rich get much richer, the poor too poor, and suicides by jumping from balconies have become a plague.
At least Britain has universal healthcare. In the U.S., we don’t even have that. How much longer will anybody but the rich cling on to the insane trickle down theory which has so thoroughly proven itself wrong? All you get, when there is no police, is the bandits taking over. The same happens when government stops enforcing some basic rules of economic decency.
