Blimey... this country is in a mess!

These two articles published in the last couple of days show just how hard it is to get by in the UK at the moment. I know times are tough but it shocked me to discover that a third of kids aged between 11 and 16 know someone who has lost their job.
I was also staggered to read the story of the young mum who despite doing most of her weekly shop in the "reduced" section had found that the price of her weekly shop has doubled in a year, and she is considering getting an allotment to grow her own veg.
