There is an undeniable link between poverty and privilege which some people can feel uncomfortable about. Those who are really struggling to get by in day to day life simply can’t think about flying away on holiday. Those in poverty aren’t unaware of their position, they have seen their more affluent friends go away on trips for summers, work, gap years. Those who have never been on a plane still have to sit through their friends travel stories.
I have friends who have never been on a plane, I have friends who have lived in countless countries around the world. The life chances which are available to both of them are completely different. In the next part looking at poverty and privilege I will focus on Poverty in London.
