Between 1998-2011 child poverty plummeted. Under Clegg and Cameron it’s soaring.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today)

Suffer little children, suffer.

According to figures released by the Child Poverty Action Group:

  • Child poverty reduced dramatically between 1998 and 2011 when 1.1 million children were lifted out of poverty.
  • But under current government austerity policies, child poverty is rising dramatically with an expected 600,000 more children living in poverty by 2016.

Bloody well serves those pesky kids right for f*cking up our economy with their dodgy interbank lending rates, high risk derivatives markets and out of control hedge fund leverages.

A heavy dose of poverty will soon sort them out.
