This looks like a tabloid story... I drive to work through Peckham everyday and there are NO good views. It's even worse when I have just returned from Spain.. I look in vain for the lovely pine trees, the cuddling storks and am met with inner city grime. My only consolation is that I don't actually live there. I reckon this is why the elderly Afro-Caribbean lady crossing the road was wearing a fluorescent green curly wig, at least she enlivened the landscape and made me smile.

As is offered in Uk to all .Whilst trying to find a job.

hmmm no chance of that in Spain, my sisters tell me that if you lose your job and end up living in a carboard box then so be it- the goverment wont help.
and that the council houses there (casas de proteccion oficial) are only sold at reduced prices to people who actually work, if you are unemployed you cant even apply to get on the endless list!

You all made me laugh so much with your supermarket vouchers (do they really exist?!!?!?!?!?!!?!?).

Yes Yes and more Yes

To add to this

Our friends have arrived from England , she is an ex primary school teacher, and some mornings goes in to her grandsons school to help with the reading classes. This is not an inner city school, but a very rural Leicestershire village. Her grandson told her very proudly that they had a new little girl in there class who is Polish and he was going to learn her language.
She then went in as usual to help, and she was met by a very large stern looking man, mid 40s, she asked who he was, she was told that he was the full time translator for the 4 year old.

Who is paying his wages ?, I have no problem with help, goodness it is every ones right, but I do think that a full time translator for one 4 year old is going a bit far. Schools in the Uk are run on a very tight budget, and I know that this area gets less per head than any other region in the UK.

I also understand that children in Spain get extra help. Can I ask a question, Has any one in Spain with children been given a full time translator ?

There was a mention of translators on the BBC news yesterday, apparently over four million pounds a year is spent on translators in schools, job centres, hospitals and the like. The Government is having a clampdown now though by announcing no benefits for anyone who doesn't learn English. Wonder how long that will last before someone challenges the ruling as being against human rights! We also have informations leaflets (mainly on how to claim benefits) in quite a few languages. (Not sure if Spanish is included though)
