Bringing Britain Together

Bringing Britain Together: 1998: Tony Blair....“ We all know the problems of our poorest neighbourhoods - decaying housing, unemployment, street crime and drugs. People who can move out, nightmare neighbours move in, shops, banks and other vital services close.
Over the last two decades the gap between these "worst estates" and the rest of the country has grown. It has left us with a situation that no civilised society should tolerate. It is simply not acceptable that so many children go to school hungry, or not at all, that so many teenagers grow up with no real prospect of a job and that so many pensioners are afraid to go out of their homes. It shames us as a nation, it wastes lives and we all have to pay the costs of dependency and social division. "
