Socialist Worker

Poor Kids

Issue No. 2254

Three and a half million children live in poverty in Britain. This new BBC documentary follows four children to show how having little money affects their everyday life.

Eight year old Courtney in Bradford thinks her friend Holly is “loaded” because she went on holiday last year.

The BBC says that the programme will explore the children’s own understanding and ask them where they think they will be when they are 21.
