(not satire – it’s the UK today)

Here’s a remarkable statistic which seems to have largely gone unnoticed.

A few days ago, Tesco released a press release to coincide with their food collection drive this week which included a survey on food poverty in the UK.

Amazingly, according to the survey, more than a quarter of parents in the UK say they can’t provide food for all the meals their children need during the school holidays.

And almost half of 18-24 year-olds (44%) say they’ve experienced some form of food poverty in the last six months.

While these statistics are astonishing – shocking even – I can’t say I’m much surprised at how these facts have gone largely unreported in the mainstream media.

Welcome to third-world Britain.

One in five parents struggling to feed their children
