    I'd be interested to know what percentage of those 3 million children have parents that drink and smoke. Give up a couple of packets of fags and a bottle of vodka each week and all of a sudden you've got £35 extra to feed the kids.

    Honestly, I don't believe that. There will be some genuine cases but many will be pure bad parenting.

    I was donig a social service job a while back, taking a young mum to counselling sessions. Initially I felt sorry for her, her dad had passed away suddenly and she was left bringing up her younger siblings as well as her own child. On the way she was on the phone to her social worker trying to sort out a food parcel so she could feed the children that weekend. My sympathy very quickly expired when she finished the call and started moaning that her sky tv was playing up and could I drop her at the shop so she could get 20 smokes!

    Handicap 28>27>25.8>25.4>25.5>24.7>23.7>23.3.>22>20.5>17.6. 17.7>17.8>17.9>18>17.7

    I'm sorry but that's just bad parenting in 99% of the cases

    if responsible adults budget correctly then they can feed their children.

    My thoughts exactly. No matter how you slice and dice it is not the kids fault. And they are the ones that are suffering.
