As a result of Gaye's post I just did a quick bit of research on UK child poverty and found this - very worrying:-

"Nearly 4 million children are living in poverty in the UK (after housing costs)
The proportion of children living in poverty grew from 1 in 10 in 1979 to 1 in 3 in 1998. Today, 30 per cent of children in Britain are living in poverty.
The UK has one of the worst rates of child poverty in the industrialised world
The majority (59 per cent) of poor children live in a household where at least one adult works.
40 per cent of poor children live in a household headed by a lone parent. The majority of poor children (57 per cent) live in a household headed by a couple.
38% of children in poverty are from families with 3 or more children.
Since 1999, when the current Government pledged to end child poverty, 550,000 children have been lifted out of poverty."

Then of course there are the UK's pensioners who every winter have to choose between "heat or eat".

Certainly help should be provided to Syrian refugees, but we should also be helping the UK's children and elderly as an equal priority and not shove our heads in the sand and think 'I'm all right jack' and therefore all other UK people are too'!
