UK or Africa?
This one just had to be passed along, “UK death rate similar to African nations” according to the office of national statistics, that just blew me away! but how surprised am I really, knowing that the whole fucking place is just a dedication to the corporations that really run the country.
The article is from PressTV with a few snippets here for your consideration.
“The rate of mortality in the poorest areas of Britain is reportedly as high as in some crisis-hit African nations, official figures have revealed.”
“According to the records released by Office for National Statistics (ONS), the death rate in the country’s most isolated parts is as high as 1,500 deaths per 100,000 people in one year.”
“However, the rate of mortality in Rwanda, in central and eastern Africa, is 1,427 and in Botswana, in southern Africa, is 1,452, World Health Organization reported.”
“They also declare that poor diet and air pollution affect the lives of people living in the country’s crisis hit areas.”
Its fucking out-bastard-standing to know that some of our own UK folk have it only slightly better than some of the worlds most vulnerable.
What ever the cause of this statistic matters not really, I used to live in some of those areas mentioned and can tell you first hand that a combination of poverty and pollution is to blame, what does matter though is the fact that none of us really know whats hidden buried beneath our feet, it’s all hush-hush, you can bet that our government know though, but add into that social deprivation and you have a vision of our future, good eh!!
