Each blog tackles the stark reality of health inequality in modern Britain. The authors examine the socio-economic factors that govern life chances, as UK citizens are increasingly left at the mercy of a ruthless postcode lottery that dictates mortality rates and incidence of low birth-weight. The blogs demonstrate why it is a national disgrace.
BLOG 1 Dr Angela Donkin - Incomes are too low for children to live a healthy life from birth to death
BLOG 2 Carl Walker - The people’s money management skills are good; the State creates problem debts for vulnerable individuals and families, which are linked to the most profound anxiety, anger and suicide.
BLOG 3 Richard Wilkinson & Kate Pickett - Being on wrong end of inequality leads to more depression, mental illness, addiction and imprisonment
BLOG 6 Richard Wilkinson & Kate Pickett - Government enacts policies that make child poverty worse & demonises parents. We tolerate overblown salaries and tax avoidance and shocking childhood deprivation in the UK
BLOG 9 Maddy Power , Kate Pickett & Richard Wilkinson - Food Bank Britain. In austerity politics the state drops responsibility for preventing hunger.
