In a Socialist Telly first, live questions will be taken from the channel’s Twitter feed
Tory policies have inflicted such hardship and hunger on millions – one in three – of the UK’s children that the UN’s special rapporteur Philip Alston condemned them as a ‘disaster for the poor’ and the UN’s humanitarian agency for children, UNICEF, has been forced to feed UK children for the first time in the organisation’s history.
Tomorrow night’s Skwawk Talk on Left Media TV (Socialist Telly) will feature what Liverpool Labour MP Ian Byrne has described as a ‘mind-blowing’ presentation by professor of paediatric health Ian Sinha on how that poverty and hunger impact poor children’s development and life prospects – even down to a cellular level:
Byrne, who has seen the presentation and will also participate to talk about his ‘Right to Food’ campaign – and in a new step for Socialist Telly, both will take questions that viewers can submit to the Socialist Telly Twitter feed.
Millions of children in the UK are living in poverty and will face a bleak Christmas, so don’t miss the chance on Monday evening to find out more about what they face and how to help them.
