About this book
Paperback edition of Davies' controversial investigation into poverty in Britain. When in 1993 UNICEF announced that children in Britain were poorer that children in Portugal, Albania and the Czech Republic, in fact they were the poorest in Europe, Peter Lilley refused a UN call to fight poverty, saying that it was unnecessary. "A brilliant journalistic investigation... a copy should be sent to every Labour MP to remind them of their responsibilities" "The Observer".
An investigation into poverty, corruption, crime and related issues in Britain including drugs and prostitution amongst children. The investigation moves from the slums and ghettos of our cities, to crack houses and brothels, contacts with street gangs and drug dealers uncovering secret rites and a bizarre and cruel world.
