On Friday 18 November the BBC broadcast its annual Children in Need appeal. With this in mind it seems pertinent to reflect on both the charity and broader understandings of children in need. Children in Need the charity has been in existence since 1980 and has raised approximately £650 million pounds (including the £46 million raised so far this year). Terry Wogan (the primary host of the event from 1980 – 2014 inclusive who died in January 2016) and his contribution was remembered during the annual Telephon and online. #ChildrenInNeed trended all evening and alongside tweets referring to the stories told on the night, the celebrity appearances and the growing total there were many others focusing on how life is getting harder in Tory Britain for an increasing number of children. There was also some reference to the government’s announcement, that day, of its support for the 10 year refurbishment of Buckingham Palace. For example:

#ChildrenInNeed has raised over £600 million in 33 years. The Government has pledged £369 million to Buckingham Palace in one afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who raised £46m for #ChildrenInNeed. And those who raised £369m for #RoyaltyInNeed.

“The fake anti-elitism of rich white men like Nigel Farage and Donald Trump is farcical at one level, but in reality it’s no joke. So it is down to Labour to restore hope – and give people the chance to take back real control. The Tories under Theresa May are taking Britain backwards and failing to meet people’s needs and aspirations. Under my leadership, Labour is setting a real alternative for Britain.”

Jeremy Corbyn 19/11/16 in the Guardian

Last week's US Presidential election result was a global wake-up call. Whether in the US or the UK, people are feeling left behind – marginalised by an economic system that makes them work harder for less, while hoovering up ever greater rewards for a small elite.
