THIRD WORLD UK COMPARED TO HAITI

‘We’re turning into a third world country’. Child poverty crisis is leaving UK families living a hand-to-mouth existence. It is believed that no one is more than a pay packet away from disaster and is never truer than in Liverpool.
The Maritime City, one known as the Second City of Empire, is far from the thoughts of the political elite squatting in their parliamentary and House of Lords Chambers. As Britain braces for Brexit, the effect on cities like Liverpool could be apocalyptic.
Britain’s exit from the EU might be the top priority for politicians, but for those who exist on the breadline, the big issue is about day to day survival.
‘Sometimes you can be left with £60 to last a month,’ father-of-four Dominic Barber told ITV News. ‘But when that money runs out after a week, the family is left with nothing, it is facing an abyss until the next pay cheque comes through.
‘”My kids don’t ask for nothing, because they know the situation,’ he said. ‘My worst nightmare [is] someone knocking on my door, saying sorry Mr Barber, you can’t feed your children, you can’t clothe your children, I’m going to have to take your kids away.
“Because the minute that happens, I won’t be on this earth.’
Liverpool’s poverty figures are stark. One in three children in Merseyside is living below the poverty line, equivalent to more than 35,000 children. The city has the highest figure for children living in poverty after housing costs have been taken into account.
‘We’re turning into a third world country, that might sound overdramatic, but I don’t think it is. People have got nothing at all, absolutely nothing,’ Shirley Marshall told ITV News.
She runs a store at the heart of the community, providing everything from maternity clothes to baby food and nappies to help families in dire need of a hand-out. The store helps 1,000 people every single week.
More and more families on the breadline are relying on food banks to get by. The Trussell Trust said 1.6 million food parcels were given to people nationally for the financial year 2018/19, up from 1.3 million the year before.
‘Me and my partner have gone days without food, just to make sure the kids have got something in their belly,’ Mr Barber said.
‘Starve or steal’ is the depressing mantra he would have to live by if it wasn’t for the foodbanks. ‘First time I’ve ever been in trouble in my life, was when I was 32 years of age and I had to go into Sainsbury’s to steal food, nappies, wipes, for my children,’ he said. It was the worst thing ever.’
For many families, trying to alleviate the encroaching poverty trap, there is a desperate need for another job. Maureen Delahunty has three part-time jobs, but as soon as the summer holidays start she’s in the red, as the cost of childcare is more than she earns.
More than a million Brits are working two or more jobs to help make ends meet, according to an analysis by the Trades Union Congress (TUC).
‘Even though I’m working full time, I’ve got a nearly £2,000 overdraft what I’m living on,’ she said.
As the outcome of Brexit hangs in the balance, it won’t be MPs who face the real after-effects of the exit from the EU, but the people who have the least.
