Vulnerable adults living alone are the worst off! At least children have access to support. I am a long suffering, vulnerable, lone living, in debt, medically neglected woman with no quality of life. Each GP that I have turned to has viciously dismissed, mocked and neglected me.
I am in my late 20s and I have been suffering increasingly since early teens!
I have a widespread chronic skin disease, a widespread chronic pain disease, and chronic fatigue.
I am suffering mentally and physically, as well as financially, socially, and personally.
I am a chronically ill, long suffering, extremely uncomfortable individual, under a lot of pressure, without any support!
What more can I try?
This is what I am saying to Filipinos wanting to be citizens in rich countries. Prices of their goods are higher than in the Philippines. Just be thankful where God place us in that country and just help our country.
Dont believe too much that those who go abroad had better life.
Where was your concern and sadness when you were killing children all over the world through poverty and starvation your empire created? Your only sorrow is that your empire is gone and you can’t live the good life on blood sweat and labor of enslaved exploited and subjugated people and their starving children. No sympathy for your selective, racist sorrow.
None of this news. British media has been doing reports exactly like this for decades. I find it astonishing that with such appalling publicity (the internet is obviously an international platform) anybody would want to come to Britain without any money to try to make a life for themselves.
1. Free healthcare
2. Free electricity (!)
3. newly wed couple get $50k
4. Even more financial benefits on the birth of a child.
5.one of the highest unemployment benefits of any country.!
the west is poor cos it invested in wars more than anything. Doesn't a bunch of nuclear weapons suffice ? Whats the need of spending billions in crackers and not a penny on their citizens.
What are the parents and guardians doing in these situations? It is meaningless to say children and families are poor without identifying the reasons for the poverty. Is the poverty due to circumstances beyond people's control (e.g., health, family breakdown), or is due to circumstances under people's control (e.g. education, criminality, substance abuse, laziness)? What about the men that have children with several women being forced to fulfill their parental responsibilities? The goal of any government program should not be keep people in poverty and dependent on government handouts, but rather to cause the change required in people's lives so that they can be self-sufficient.
Why do people living in poverty have children? Blaming the government and past government's for child poverty is pointless. Child poverty Will never be eradicated, the human species is too selfish and stupid. Throwing money into poverty only produces more children living in poverty. Amazing work from the charities involved. Heart breaking to see.
The simplest solution would be to give parents £500 per month every month per child to help with the cost of living. In August/ September parents should also receive an additional £350 to help with the cost of providing a school uniform and other equipment children need to attend school. These simple acts would immediately lift every child out of poverty. Every child.
No child should have to live in poverty in the 21st century
This level of suffering is a logistical error, a systemic issue caused by a lack of co ordination to distribute what is needed. The level of suffering caused by not having access to stuff and food, that is being thrown out, daily ! The societal and personal consequences of this, is maddening.
Stop producing children when you have no job, no money and no father around. These people are incapable of taking care of their children and no one wants to hold them accountable when they have child after child after child when they can't take care of those they have. Stop blaming a government that provides free contraception for women. Oddly enough, sales of cigarettes and mobile phones aren't affected in these communities.
We had a real socialist to help us, Jeremy Corbyn, but he was tarnished unjustly by the media and the British public gave in to it - clearly we don’t learn and are too stubborn in our ways. We chose a privatising-happy government, Tories, and Boris Johnson 🤦🏽♂️ and here we are.
These governments spend a ridiculous amount of money on immigration. Yet their own citizens are living without the basic items that they provide for free to a newly arriving individuals whom are breaking the law on day one! When are the citizens going to stand up and say no more?!?!
Our government here in the UK chucks millions (even billions) in foreign aid but neglects its own people In the Uk elderly people are having the choose between putting their heating on and buying food. Pensions remain unchanged but prices are rising at n alarming rate. Not enough cash injected into the NHS or Adult Social Care and Mental Health Care. Yet allowing the population to increase at an alarming rate. Everyone here is suffering because there are not enough resources to cater for the masses that are now here on our tiny island. The government, as everyone knows, uses tax payers money to pay for their comforts, house repairs/decorations (including their second homes!) when so many people are homeless and destitute. The cuts cover many services and the government distributes available funds from taxes inappropriately and irresponsibly.
I grew up in an orphanage, when I turned 18 I was sent out to a city I had never been to before, and taken to a YWCA. I was told where I had to go to work, and to ask someone to show me where the place was the following day. I had 2 of each dresses, panties, bra pyjamas and 1 pair of shoes. My first months rent was paid, but had no money, knew no one. I opened an account for my meals, had to wash my clothes by hand every evening when I got home, so that they were clean to wear. There was no such thing as handouts, it was a case of you have to work for everything you wanted. I am sorry but saying children going to school dirty and smelling because they can’t afford a washing machine is outrageous, pure laziness! there are many countries where people are poor, but wash by hand and make sure their children are clean and not embarrassed at school.
yet the local council got a grant for £ 1 million in the area of the first lady, they didn't want to publicise it , so not to be over subscribed and thus ended up sending 3/4 of the money back to central govt. because they didn't spend it by the end of the year, and consequently reducing the amount of grant in future years...you could not make it up !
I grew up like this and it's because my mother had problems with alcohol. My complacent father gave her money and she would just go and spend it up the pub. My father had problems, too. He didn't really want to help beyond handing my mother money every month knowing exactly how she would spend it.
There is no excuse for a child to be sleeping on the floor without proper bedding. You can buy bedding in charity shops and from eBay. You can buy second hand beds and couches from places like Emmaus for £20. You prioritize this before you pay the water bill or any credit card bill etc. The parents must be buying alcohol and cigarettes or spending money on pets. I have seen it all before. Mom or dad has 5 cats or dogs and they have to smoke and drink. The kids get neglected. Living in the UK is expensive, but you can get by if you avoid certain expenses and don't buy things new when you can get them pre owned.
The UK also has a tremendous problem with taking too many children into care. Many of the children are already adequately looked after. Their hands are in the pockets of the adoption industry. It's a public scandal. There is also little to no therapeutic help for parents who are struggling so families can be preserved. This news clip is sickening. It doesn't tell the whole truth.
Time to bring in Chinese house builders. They can build quality houses at less than half the time taken today and at less than 75% of the cost. That way house prices will come down and give poorer families a chance to buy their own home rather than live at the mercy of local government.
We weren't well off at all growing up. There was 4kids in one house. But my mum worked one job my dad worked two. My eldest brother shared shoes with our neighbours and I never had correct uniform for my school. But we did have a fantastic community in early 90s. If u needed childcare u would get help from neighbours and if they needed sugar u would help them. We were fortunatly never unhappy. I feel awful for these poor souls.
ALL THESE INHUMANE THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO POOR PEOPLE,ALL THE WHILE THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DAY DOES ABSOULETY NOTHING TO ASSIST THEIR PLIGHT...ONCE THEIR POCKETS ARE FILLED AND THEIR CHILDREN ARE WELL TAKEN CARE OF...THIS IS THE MANTRA OF THE ENTIRE WORLD,RICH GETTING RICHER AND THE POOR GETTING POORER...WHEN WILL IT END,GOD HELP US.
I'm someone who grew up in poverty, and my experience was that it is doable to get by on the benefits. Most families who couldn't get by, were usually spending their benefits on booze, drugs, cigarettes, etc... and those were the families who went hungry. Or were sleeping on the floor.
Being in poverty sucks. But, the worse one's are the parents with a terrible upbringing and bad mental health. And their problems are never addressed until they are mistreating their kids or breaking the law.
There really needs to be more in place to break the cycle of poverty and abuse.
The parents need to take responsibility. There is so much help in the UK it's ridiculous how much they give.. this is a load of rubbish, parents are most likely paying off debt, taking drugs, drinking or smoking that they have gotten themselves and unfortunately the kids are a second thought to them.
I worked for most of my life and now on universal credit, pregnant with ny 2nd child and have a small child to care for, plus husband that's self employed. But we managed really well. Tbh I don't feel poor. We have everything we need. Granted we don't smoke, so probably save a lot on that and no alcohol and pubs... probably a massive saving there, not a shopaholic, we were clothes and buy proper clothes that will last at least 6 months to a couple years... we shop for veg, meat fruits, pasta, rice etc to cook healthy meals and I can multitasking ans do them super fast... so rarely get take out... cheapest car abd cheapest insurance. Cheap 1 bed flat, a bit cramped but we have beds to sleep on. Heating always nice and cosy. Thank God we have no problems. We bought 2nd hand furniture wven the mattress... there's nothing wrong with doing that, plus the washing machine. Thr fridge freezer was new though from argos. Somwtimes it comes down to money management and financial knowledge budgeting and life skills...etc
And another reality is, which no one will address, is how many people just keep having children without giving any thought about how they will give those children a good, balanced, loving and structured upbringing. A lot of these children will be from chaotic and unstable backgrounds to begin with. We have been living in an ‘anything’s acceptable’ period and this is the result.
