Blog Action Day: Poverty

This is why it matters. While our government commits hundreds of billions of pounds to bail out a banking system that destroyed itself by pissing about enormous sums of cash like it was nothing more than monopoly money, there are 5.5 million children living in poverty in the UK. Many of the poorest live within walking distance of London’s financial district, where obscene amounts of money are made every day. We can bail out the bankers with seemingly limitless reserves of public money, but we can’t lift our own children off the poverty line? One more reason to be disgusted with it all. http://www.endchildpoverty.org.uk/...
