The long-awaited @Alston_UNSR report is finally out. srpoverty.org/country-visits… A strongly evidenced evisceration of the UK's recent record on #poverty covering the disastrous #humanrights impacts of welfare reform & cuts to social protection, w/ a particular focus on #childpoverty
@Alston_UNSR Other issues addressed by @alston_UNSR incl food security, the gendered nature of poverty, privatisation & serious shortcomings in the way that poverty is measured in the UK. Several key recomms echo those of other #UN #HumanRights bodies to the Uk, incl #CRC & #CESCR Committees
@Alston_UNSR Will lessons be learnt in order to address the 'systematic', 'stark' and 'ideological' erosion of the social safety net ? It was depressingly unsurprising to hear the government's trenchant response to the report as 'barely believable' and of apparent plans to complain to the UN
@Alston_UNSR We have seen this kind of response before theguardian.com/society/2013/s… but times move on and much of the #UK public is firmly out of love with #austerity
