Sometimes on days like this when everyone's scrapping around to get heard on the budget it's worth remembering some simple facts.

This is a bit of a thread. #Budget2018
We live in one of the richest nations on earth yet we fail to provide everyone with a roof over their head.

Parents need food banks to put dinner on the table. Most of those parents have a job. #Budget2018
We've gone from being a country of free higher education to one which passes on mountains of debt to the next generation.

A million more kids are set to be in poverty in the coming years. A million. #Budget2018
Sorry to be bleak. But sometimes i just feel the need to shout about how a rich country can be such a cruel, bleak place for so many people. #Budget2018
