Britain Voted Worst Place for Kids

According to a new report Britain has been voted the worst place in the developed world to bring up children. Rated the lowest of the six countries examined. The list, from best to worst, reads Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates, the U.S. and the UK.

As for the US,about 15 million children - one out of every four -live below the official poverty line and 25% of children under age 12 -- are hungry or at the risk of being hungry every day!

Yes the UK has its problems, but health care and education is free. Freedom of the press is taken for granted and while kids may watch more TV and get less exercise a quarter don't go hungry every day.
