I wonder how many kids going to school hungry is because their parents (parent) has spent the food money on booze or drugs?

Let's make a clear distinction between poverty and laziness. My school uniform in the 70's was washed by hand -we didn't get a washing machine till the 80's, but I imagine these parents have all other sorts of gadgets like i-pads and expensive sky/mobile contracts. And having a diet of takeaways works out more expensive than nutritious homecooked food with added fruit, it just takes effort which I suspect is the greatest deficiency these parents lack.

People who have come to this country don't think like most of us do, never see the dirt on their clothes, unless they go to church on Sunday's. The more people do things for them, the less they will do for themselves.

The left wing have a strangle hold on the country - and see what a mess they are making of it. The left wing are seeking to control the language so they can control thought and they are starting with the young and the ill. The left destroy the right of the individual.
