Report by joint committee on human rights says worst suffering has been inflicted on children from migrant and low-income families
britishroses's insight:

Our most vulnerable, been children or sick/disabled and those desperate for a job they are NOT the people responsible for the Global mess, that falls to the bankers and the greedy corporations and individuals. 

 

The Tories knew exactly what they intended to do and that attacking our most vulnerable and the poor was the easy way to do it; they stopped  legal aid so the majority would not have any legal recourse and have not given a damn what the consequences would be as long as they didn't lose a penny or a meal.
