Topic - Living on a 5 a week food budget

Blizzard - on 09 May 2013
I live a frugal life, but reading this article was still a surprise.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22345958

The article highlights that there are few people with high incomes on welfare, so the tabloid press can mislead us with their stories.

Having just come back from Nepal and witnessed how poor they are there, I'm surprised people in the UK appear to have it as bad (eating porridge 3 times a day) even on benefits.

I guess we are lucky to have a Welfare system in the UK. There is no help like that in Nepal.
