Chasm

 

So I was working on this guide to getting stuff for kids who already have too much stuff, it was in my drafts folder, when the news broke about the Green Party’s policy of benefit increases. On Twitter, a friend who’s doing her PhD on food insecurity tweeted some quotes from interviews, and it’s grim:

Could there be a more blatant example of inequality than the middle class mother having a problem of toys everywhere, while not far away, another mother has the problem of skipping meals so the kids can eat?

(No prizes for guessing who I’m voting for)
