A lot of people say that the UK Tory government at Westminster have been incompetent, but they have been very competent at making extremely rich people richer and a lot of other people a lot poorer.
In actual fact they have been very successful in achieving their goal.
The UK is a very rich country, but instead of the government tackling inequality and poverty, they have created it.
The truth is constantly hidden, because most of the mainstream media is owned by billionaires.
Saying that poor people only have themselves to blame is ludicrous and disgusting. Living in poverty is not a conscious choice.
“I feel so guilty that my Mum won’t eat so we can. I’m going to work really hard when I’m older, so I can take my mum for a big meal!”
“My teacher gives me extra snacks so that I can take it home. My Mum has no money and
Is usually asleep. So, I usually give them to my little sister. She isn’t old enough to go to school yet, and I have already had some dinner at school.”
“If there isn’t enough food, we’ll get it and sometimes mum will go hungry and starve and
stuff.” Bryony, I3, told researchers. “Even if it is not that much food for me and [brother], it’s enough that we’ve actually had something. My tummy is always rumbling but I’m used to it now.”
“I envy children that get chocolate and sweets whenever they want. They are so lucky. I can’t wait for my birthday, because that’s when I am allowed to have those kinds of treats. We can’t afford them all year round.”
“When I’m hungry I just can’t sleep. It’s really really hard for me to do that, so I just need to relax my mind and know that I will eat in seven hours when I get to school.”
