2015 political manifesto poverty audit

I’m just about to break the promise I made to myself not to write anything here about Thursday’s general election. Therefore my apologies to all reading this, but I’ve just come across the poverty audit of UK political party manifestos produced by the UK representatives of Academics Stand Against Poverty (http://academicsstand.org/). Written by some of the UK’s leading public health academics in a very short space of time it makes for fascinating reading and covers most environmental health related areas. The report can be downloaded via:

Owen Jones recent plea for people to vote is also well worth a few minutes of viewing, via:

With best wishes for Thursday, then Friday, maybe Saturday…,
