Rich Guy Proves Food Poverty Is Just Laziness, Gets Shut Down With Maths

In 2018, a United nations special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights made some shocking encounters in the UK, one of the richest and most developed economies in the world. Almost 14 million people, or a fifth of entire populations, lives in poverty, leaving four million children without be made available to healthy and nutritious food.

According to the Food Ethics Council , countless families in the UK are’ food insecure, ’ facing stark preferences between buying menu, compensating the tariff or heating their home. A compounding of a lack of shops selling fresh nutrient, fast food channels near colleges and veggies that cost three times more than ultra-processed alternatives means that cheap food laden with salt, carbohydrate and saturated paunches are often their alone option. This is known as food poverty.

This tweet by the chairman of Cheltenham Civic Society, whose main aim is to maintain the special architectural excellences of Cheltenham and the human environment, is a prime example of victim-blaming by someone completely out of touch with the reality for countless beings in the UK.

Mr. Booten shared an image of the chicken stir-fry he prepared for his family for PS3. 89, or 97 p each. “Don’t tell me we have food poverty in this country, ” he captioned the epitome. “It’s just idleness.”

See, you’re merely malnourished because you’re lazy, you silly poor person!

There are many reasons why the tweet was in poor taste, as well as being factually mistaken. People were quick to target them out with nearly 5000 responses, most of them negative.

Mr. Booten has since removed his tweet with an defense, saying that he was sorry for “having minimized a serious issue.”

Now, there is a lot of denial about these annoying points about poverty in the UK, and a bent for those who aren’t affected by it to blame the victim for their own drawbacks. Nevermind that many of the jobs in northern, industrial townships have been sold off for short term profit.

Those people most affected by job losses and endless chips to public services are, in turn, encouraged by rabid right-wing newspapers to blame foreign forces like immigration and the EU, whilst the gradual dismantling of the welfare state continues unabated.

Welcome to Brexitland, everybody!

“British compassion for those who are suffering has amended by replacing a punishing, mean-spirited, and often heartless coming apparently designed to instill discipline where it is least useful, to impose a rigid dictate on the living conditions of those least capable of coping with today’s world, and hoisting the goal of enforcing blind compliance over a genuine concern to improve the well-being of those at the lowest levels of British society, ” the UN report states.

“The experience of the United Kingdom, peculiarly since 2010, stress the conclusion that poverty is a political choice.”

“Austerity could easily have given the poorest of the poor if the political will had existed to do so. Resources were available to the Treasury at the last budget that could have changed the situation of millions of people living in poverty, but the political hand-picked was made to fund tax chips for the affluent instead.”

Sound familiar, American books?

What we need in the face of this avariciou, greedy politics is more empathy and compassion for those who are getting was behind , not less.

Resist the calls to blame foreigners for your society’s afflictions and examine closer to home- it is our commanders and their big business cronies that are doing this!
