We always hear about "the vulnerable".
They are always used as a weapon in political wrangling.
So who are they?
I have heard it said over time that the following cohorts are "Most vulnerable" or among the "Most vulnerable"
Mentally Ill people
People in Hospital
Non national minorities
The government obviously think that the elite civil servants, banking overlords and bondholders are the most vulnerable while the opposition think that PAYE workers are.
After all the opposition claim that this budget is hardest on the vulnerable, the government say that the vulnerable are protected.
That is the default argument of every budget.
So who do the vulnerable think they are? and more importantly - who do you think they are?
