And gullible too. What actual evidence (you say nothing but "A
British Study") do you have that those children are malnourished
because of lack of government intervention, and what assumptions
were made in that study?

Secondly, it does not surprise me that a people with a long
history of opposition to individual rights and responsibility
would look at malnourished children and blame the state, rather
than those actually responsible for the chilren: parents. Why
do you not look at this as a moral problem, rather than as a
political one? Are there no /people/ in the UK willing to take
on the responsibility for these children's care that their
parents have shirked? And if there are such people, is the
government getting in the way of their doing it?
