Was watching 'This Week' and being incensed by the vile Julia Hartley-Brewers effectively blaming the under-paid people who have to claim tax credits for er... being poor and having to claim tax credits. According to her it's a simple 'life style choice'. So it's nothing to do with businesses taking the piss by not paying their workers a decent enough wage so they don't have to claim benefits, nothing to do with people not being given the chance to take a full time job because, again businesses are finding it easier and a lot cheaper to take on two or three part timers rather than the one full time employee. Which has also been a crafty ruse of the government in keeping unemployment figures down, if it wasn't for the massive increase in zero hour contracts and part time jobs we'd more than likely have unemployment levels running at something like three or even four million. Julia Hartley-Brewers is your typical 'blame the victim' right-wing shill.
Worse - the token lefty Margret Hodge did nothing to shoot her down, instead she was practically agreeing with her. With people like her in opposition who needs door mats?

The power of pink: Men who wear shirts of that colour earn £1,000 a year more than those who don’t
WHY FUTURE IS BRIGHT FOR MEN IN PINK
No doubt there will be other papers covering the same reports findings.
Now why do I have a sneaking suspicion someone in some company somewhere* has an overstock of pink shirts they need to offload? Oh yes... that'll be because I've read 'Propaganda' by Edward Bernays where's there's a whole chapter on who he made velvet a popular fashion choice.
