The return of Dickensian Britain: 90,000 children to face Christmas without a home

Astonishing. “The economy is on the mend”, “We’re all in this together” etc. And yet what’s really booming is homelessness and reliance on foodbanks. Ever get the feeling you’re being lied to?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

The number of homeless families has almost doubled during the last 3 years of our so-called economic recovery.

That means over 90,000 children will spend this Christmas without a home.

Meanwhile, this is what our newspapers are telling us:

Mind you, to be fair, most of our newspapers are owned by billionaire tax exiles who don’t even live in the UK.

So what would they know?


Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks:
