CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE…

but not necessarily in Britain! In the recently published Unicef ‘Fairness for Children’ report, Britain has been severely reprimanded by the UN over its record on reducing inequality among children and the lack of parity between rich and poor in the fields of health and education. The report strongly suggested that the British Government should reconsider its cuts to benefits. Bearing in mind we are the 5th richest nation, it beggars belief Britain is ranked 25th out of 37 wealthy countries covered by the UN report-behind Poland, Romania and Slovenia! Perhaps the Government should cut its foreign aid budget (£13 billion a year), and spend some of the money on British children? So much for David Cameron rhetoric; ‘Big Society’ and ‘We’re all in it together!
