What do you think would be an adequate monthly income for you and your household?

A tricky question for me as costs are rising and the Gov keep moving the goalposts back regularly on coat of living.

The cost of housing here is high.

To cover basic bills and rent, food , An adequate monthly basic allowance would be £2000.

What is deemed as a necessity?

Food and bills? Paying for after school activities for the children? Owning a car in a rural area?

A holiday once a year?

A taxi to A& E , 15 miles away when needed at £30-£40 each way?

The very fact corrupt wealthy politicians who do very little work for a large sum of money , make decisons on your worth for any type of happiness, is what upsets me.
