Handing the banks the dough...


Alistair Darling dramatically flung another £40 billion bailing-out yet again the banking system yesterday, not that it hasn’t escaped my notice, that’s ten time the amount needed to halve child poverty by 2010.

This say’s a lot about this government and its priority processing and in who's interests, even before the recession there were 4 million children living below the poverty line. Now, many families are falling deeper and deeper into poverty, as unemployment rises and working hours are reduced.

Will we see more children growing up without the basic minimum that they need?

"Will we see more children growing up without the basic minimum that they need?"

And the answer is yes!

Until the bankers and capitalists have ensured the continuation of their comfort and wealth will the lot of the poor be not allowed to rise. And as long as they keep the poor just above the level of poverty required to foment unrest then everything will continue as normal.
