The time for solidarity in the UK couldn’t be more crucial. Yet in a country that unconsciously follows neo-liberal practices that replaces responsibility of the state from organised political assistance with individual beliefs, our system is doing very little to support us.
This revolves around the rising cost of living, from housing to an influx in the market, but also the inequality of the food regime where the instability of the food market is profoundly felt by marginalised groups.
Our attitude to the way we address food is influenced by the neo-liberal regime that encourages self-regulation and believes that our well-being is best achieved if the government doesn't interfere or support those who need it. The food market has widely ignored the inequality set within its prices and the types of food it is offering to different communities.
