Kids think no mobile is a sign of being poor (Sarah Womack, 19/09/2007, Daily Telegraph)

One in five British children thinks not owning a mobile phone is a sign of being poor, according to research. [...]

The research, commissioned by child poverty campaigners and community service volunteers, records some of the judgments made by children aged seven to 16 about poverty in the UK.

Other findings include that 44 per cent of children think that not being able to afford to go on a school trip is a sign of poverty. Two out of five think not having the correct school uniform makes you poor.

...all we have left at the End of History is comparative poverty.
