Opinion: Does Jeremy Hunt Hate Children?
by Edie Miller
The chancellor’s recent budget announcement of 30 hours of free childcare for one and two-year-olds is too little, too late.
Labour has promised free breakfast clubs for primary school children. But fixing Britain’s broken childcare system will take more than a bowl of cornflakes, writes Edie Miller.
The family is often seen as the political territory of the right. But with child poverty skyrocketing and families forced into increasingly abysmal living conditions, it’s right that Starmer wishes to reclaim it. To do so, argues Aaron Bastani, he must move beyond platitudes to a message that puts class politics at its heart.
