How many?!! Only 1.5 million?!
Apparently, (according to a quick google search) there are 14 miilion people living in poverty in the U.K.?!!
So thats almost 10 times more people in poverty in the U.K. than Thai people living in near poverty in Thailand.?
Of course though...it all depends on what is classed as "poverty".
I would be amazed though, if only 1.5 million people in Thailand are living in" near poverty".
By the same token, Id also be amazed if 14 million in the U.K. are living in "poverty".
