Make Poverty Enjoyable

Our great and good take poverty very seriously, as the following paragraph will show:

Britain’s pensions minister James Plaskitt was among 250 delegates at Villach in Austria. They ate gourmet meals and many visited health spas. Even the chairs for their meeting were flown 200 miles from Vienna — because the originals were judged to be too uncomfortable. The conference was called to discuss the EU’s 32million jobless, and 70million living on the poverty line.
With dedication like that, I feel hopeful for the future of the European Union's poor.
