    This was about brazil, and not the uk,
    But no doubt a lot of people will get reduced incomes, and possibly further than that, I heard on TV that some Greek families were abandoning their children, I cant believe that, but it may poss. ,

    You will have to give a bit of help on this one,
    1, why have you not put Argentina on the list,
    2, what is [median equivalised household ]]
    As im not sure what you mean here .

    The rest is ok .

    i didn't put Argentina on the list becouse that it is not te rival of UK.

    median equivalised household income = average household income

    MercoP writes under the picture”How many middle class families in Rio’s famous favelas?
    I am not sure but they are doing a little better everyday, remember MercoP a few weeks ago? Brazil has overtaken the UK as the world’s sixth largest economy.

    And if you read the local British news today...well doesn't look very well at all.

    but you have to admit it, we aint doing to bad, for a nation that has flatlined for the past 3 years, argentina and other s/a countries have risen, have they not, the problem seems to be the stupid euro loonys, and that [euro]
    insted of letting the weaker nations drop out, and come back later, the euro loonys are empying out the cuboard to save them, costing billions and billions, and their deluded dream will sink us all, europeans America and south America will all suffer, and you wonder why we want to get out .
