via Surviving austerity: the reality of breadline Britain | new economics foundation.

Personally, I am not entirely surprised by this article because this blog has log been critical of the effectiveness of the policies of David Cameron’s Government. Only yesterday, this blog challenged the UK Government’s business plan for UK public health and the implications for the NHS. 

Any thoughts?

With half a million UK people turning to food banks surely there is no justification for the UK Government to still ring-fence current levels of foreign aid?

Surely, in the case of the UK charity should start at home?
