Sending money in the wrong direction

- Brian Dickinson

JEREMY Beecham’s recent letter was correct.

In this day and age it is an absolute disgrace that we still have child poverty in this country. It seems to me that we have our priorities all wrong.

The Government are currently throwing money at the Green Grants Initiative.

Many of the people who qualify have no need of this money and could easily pay for it themselves – yet because it is free they are queueing up to take what is on offer.

Would it not be better to give this money to the poor – some of whose children cannot afford a breakfast.
