    The UN 's International Day for the Eradication of Poverty on 17 October will not hit the headlines, which continue to be dominated by the Brexit debate. Will there be a deal or no deal and what will it cost the country? The government's own statistics make clear that in particular a no deal Brexit will have severe economic consequences for the country. Just how bad it could get is a matter of conjecture. What is beyond doubt is that it will spell more misery, on a prolonged basis, for the 14.2 million people living below the poverty line in the UK. This is defined as subsisting on less than 60 % of average earnings : around £16,000 a year.

    There is no pain worse than losing loved ones in a tragic accident. That is what happened to our family when two of my brother's grandchildren died in the sea in Clacton on 8 August, one aged 14 and the other 18.

    The pain is raw and constant. It makes me want to curl up deep inside and never open my eyes again. It's a kind of pain which I had only ever read about in books and seen in movies.
