"Suicide by tube increases by 74% in 10 years; recession blamed, natch."
The word "natch" in your comment trivialises what has actually occurred -the suicide of individuals.
It is not worthy of a serious news website.

On the contrary, Toffer99: the aim of the observation was to highlight how the recession is used almost as a whitewash to hide a range of social issues and to obviate the need to consider the matter as a collection of individual cases. It has become a social cliche to 'blame the recession', when this is often not the case.
