The UK has been accused of failing its children, as it comes bottom of a league table for child well-being across 21 industrialised countries.
[...] The Unicef study found Britain had the lowest proportion of children who found their friends kind and helpful - 40%, compared to 80% in Switzerland, he went on.
Professor Bradshaw said that this was an indication of a "dog eat dog society".
Chimney sweeps, powder-monkeys and street urchins, that’s our kids.
(My American friends might like to note that the US came second-bottom of the 24. And that those usual social paradises and teacher’s pets the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark were top. Which tells you all you need to know about this report.)
