This is my insight using my CEC . I see many more than 20000 innocent victims are going to suffer poverty as a result of George Osborne's attack on the poor and the weak.I see him trying to make youngsters homeless and make the poor familes suffer. I think he is doing this because they have plans to come on top of £120billion. I  wonder how will he himself feel if he has a poor family facing these problems. I wonder why he enjoys to see the poor suffer and i also wonder why is he so evil?

Nowadays, people who living at outskirt of the country are facing shortage of houses and foods.That's why there are a lot of people are living in make-shift houses. Government should help them instead of neglecting.

I agree on Bobby insight on this article that the government is neglecting the poor and their attention is turned to the middle class people. The government should take more precautionary measures before they make any new scheme.

I agree with Jiaxin's insight. Having to cope with enough food or water everyday is worrying enough. Furthermore, when winter kicks in, keeping warm became a problem too. Being so busy in managing their problem, they therefore neglect the possibility of solving it. Non-profit organisation thus can play in a big part in situation like this. This will allow the families/children to have one less problem to worry about.

This s my insight using CEC . I see that many people in this country are suffering because of having not enough money.From the article , i saw that 9 out of 10 people are living off state payouts.I think they dont have money but because maybe they tried to look for jobs to earn money but people arent hiring them because they do not need anymore people.I  wonder why dont the government provide more jobs  to the more needy people who dont have enough money to support their family or themsevles.

Rise in ‘funeral poverty’ means more than 100,000 in UK cannot afford to die

Rise in ‘funeral poverty’ means more than 100,000 in UK cannot afford to die | Poverty Assignment by_Maocai | Scoop.it
Never mind the cost of living crisis – the rise of “funeral poverty” in Britain means more than 100,000 people will be unable to afford the cost of dying this year, researchers have said.

This is my insight using CEC . I see that many people cannot afford to die due to the amount of money they have to pay just to have a funeral. The average price for arraning a funeral, burial is now £7622 and has risen by 7.1 percent since last year alone. I think that there is no need for this kind of prices to soar higher and higher because those people whose family is poor cant afford to have a funeral for someone passing away in their family and will leave financial pressure for the family. I wonder why the government is doing this to torture those poor family while only the rich can afford to have a funeral. I wonder how many people will die without having a proper funeral or burial over the years if the prices keep soaring higher.

Some people in the world have no money because of nautral disaster and many people from rich become poor so many people have no money to have a funeral. As they could not even have a proper 3 meals a day so poverty in the world affected alot of people in the world.

Li Miaozi Lostsoul's curator insight, January 27, 2014 11:15 PM

Its just so outrageous that people cannot afford to die. they can die but not have enough money to hold a funeral. its just so sad. they cant even die peacefully with a proper funeral to send them off. No matter how poor they might be they deserve a proper funeral. 

Lim Theng Shryl's curator insight, January 28, 2014 10:42 PM

The funeral poverty is very sad, the people are so poor they dont even have the money for their funeral, it is very sad because they are still humans, they still need funeral, even if it is simple. I think the government is very ridiculous, they should try to help them.
