I think I have a better comment by looking at what I know about another country that I do not live in.
So this article described decent folks in Great Britain, trying hard to work and make ends meet, but due to whatever changes in their jobs, or outside assistance, they have trouble making ends meet, and sometimes kids are going hungry. it is not people trying to juice the system for free handouts.
I understand the view for austerity, cutting services but we really just have to realize sometimes our good neighbors just need help, so if you can help your neighbor, that is a good thing. then a governnment does not need to do it, because it does it poorly sometimes. maybe not always.
but you really realize how dangerous it is to rely on government, which can change with the fickle winds, and suddenly you find yourself screwd.
