    Post The Child Poverty Capital of Europe: London Worst for Deprived Towns

    England has higher child poverty rates than other developed European countries with seven of the top 10 worst places in London, a study revealed today.
    The Campaign to End Child Poverty said its research revealed rates of more than 50 per cent in Bethnal Green and Bow, and Poplar and Canning Town in London and Manchester Central.
    Child poverty is defined as households living on £11 or less per day per family member after housing costs are taken into account.
    The study showed that Tower Hamlets in London had the worst rate of 57 per cent, followed by Islington (46 per cent), Hackney (44 per cent) and Newham (43 per cent), all in London.
    Alison Garnham, the campaign's executive director said: 'David Cameron pledged to make British poverty history and we now have a local map of the child poverty rate in each area at the time he took office and his work towards this goal began.
    'The child poverty map shows a country divided between children born into very different lives, some fortunate, some with much poorer life chances.
    'It reveals that we still have much higher rates of child poverty than in most other wealthy European countries, reaching 57 per cent of children in one London constituency and more than 60 per cent in some wards.

    'The Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister have our full support for the promise they made in the coalition agreement to end child poverty by 2020.
    'The difficult economic circumstances we face mean it is more important than ever to end Britain's child poverty shame.'
    Hugh Thornbery, director of children's services at Action for Children, said: 'Today's report reinforces the fact that millions of children are born into lives blighted by poverty. The Government needs to turn their promises into action.
    'Tragically too many families have lived in severe poverty for generation after generation, unable to break the relentless cycle of deprivation.

    'Support for families at the earliest possible stage is the most successful way to sustainably combat child poverty.'

    Does someone have a chart showing the racial make-up of the districts? In the online census data I found some and found that most of the most poor districts also have a high rate of foreigners. But its complicated to read...
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Indeed, it would be interesting to compare that map with the percentage of immigrants in those areas.

    The best rated comment under that article:
    Shouldn't have imported so many of the poor from abroad.

    The community remains concentrated around Bethnal Green and Whitechapel; and has spread into other east London boroughs. London as a city is home to the single largest number of people of Bangladesi origin outside of Bangladesh, with close to 200,000 individuals being of full Bangladeshi origin in 2007.

    Besides Nigerians, Ghanaians are the largest Black African group in London, with the majority being situated in the boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth, Newham, Hackney, Haringey, Lewisham, Croydon and Brent

    This is unbelievable. I would think this sort of capital would be located somewhere in Draculaland, or in the Balkans. Wow, thanks multiculturalism! They managed to reduce one of Europe's brightest cities into a ghetto hell hole.
