Radio4 Today doing a report on the ground from Tower Hamlets.

Lists of the problems, first problem

Vitamin D deficiency ...

Stop there. Thats because the kids are black/brown.

Any non white North of Southern Spain needs to take VitD supplements.

Ditto any white South of Southern spain needs to cover up.

But its unhealthy for both skin types to be outside their geographic band.

Then the continue - obesity.

Oh for fcksake .

Perhaps it is an education issue....parents not reading, say how to care and feed baby correctly, not having a family support system around them, not taking their children to health centres regularly, only taking them to the doctor when damage has been done?......;)

There seems to be several versions of that story on the BBC right now. One of them brings up that drivel about relative poverty. But since the whole thing reads as another "need to help people who can't be arsed to help themselves" (none of the articles imply not enough money to get what you need to be healthy) them screw 'em.

If the population of Tower Hamlet  travelled half way across the world, youd think theyd be up for travelling a couple of stops on the bus to get a job ....
