headlines that Banksy would feature in DismalTimes

Some interesting headlines this week:

Marriage becomes preserve of the rich

Data analysed by the Marriage Foundation shows that wealthier couples are four times more likely to get married than those from poorer backgrounds. Researchers found that of mothers with children under five, 87% with household incomes over £43,000 are married, against only 24% with incomes under £14,000. Campaigners are now warning that poor children risk experiencing ever worsening levels of education, income and poor housing as a result of growing up in single-parent households.The Sunday Telegraph, Page: 9

Solar subsidies face further cuts

Energy secretary Amber Rudd is set to slash solar power subsidies as the government seeks to rein in the costs of feed-in tariffs introduced five years ago. Industry sources fear subsidies could be cut by as much as half. Nearly 100 chief executives, councillors and union leaders signed a letter sent to David Cameron on Friday to warn of the damage being done to a sector. The Sunday Times, Business, Page: 1

This is the most disturbing recent headline from Banksy’s favourite rag:

Border officials could use force to fingerprint migrants

The Home Office has backed the use of force to take fingerprints from migrants to stop them arriving in poor European countries then trying to claim asylum in richer ones. Britain is supporting the tough line proposed by the EU with the hope that fewer migrants will be able to gather in the makeshift camp in Calais if more of their fingerprints are stored on the Europe-wide database.
