Feed the Children – in modern Britain NOW

“Children are going hungry; yet the Tories are forcing through cuts to remove free school meals for children where the family income is more than £160 a week. When our society has already sunk this low, how can we possibly contemplate a Brexit that would leave the nation 8% poorer?” Christopher Oxford

“My children have grey skin, poor teeth, poor hair;
they are thinner.”

“Children are filling their pockets with food. In some establishments that would be called stealing.

 

We call it SURVIVAL.”

  1. They’re still not listening. They still don’t care. They are creating this preposterous situation for children and thus families. [Rant coming] The whole Brexit mess has been and will continue to make it worse. It should be so obvious even to the not particularly well educated. I suspect that many who voted to leave not only believed the tosh spouted by Boris that there would be 350 million for the NHS (hollow laughter) but also that the shit that had started to destroy their lives was the fault of the EU when it was quite clearly the Coalition onwards with the austerity programme. Racist or not, too many still believe that if we leave the EU, the immigrant situation could be controlled. We’ve always been able to control it while members of the EU; it’s simply that governments have chosen not to avail themselves of this right. Makes me spit that even more children are suffering than when I posted in 2013 about what was happening and asked this question: ‘Is it right that in the sixth-richest country in the world, there will be 80,000 children homeless this Christmas?’ https://firstnightdesign.wordpress.com/2013/12/22/christmas-goodies-and-baddies-on-a-budget/.
