It may come as a shock to many people, but Britain is presently in a food crisis. Britain has many "Food Banks", where the poor can go, and find food. This food has been given away by other people, so that the poor do not starve on the streets of modern Britain. Lots of people are struggling to survive, and many are forced into homelessness, and, borderline starvation. Britain's benefits system is becoming mre selfish and less and less human rights-based.
