    Reynolds is expected to say in a speech in Manchester: “I am pledging today that the next Labour government … will reduce the taper rate when we replace universal credit. Improving our social security system to allow people to have jobs you can raise a family on is part of our new deal for working people.”

    Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.

    Wilkins Micawber, Ch12 David Copperfield
