Boy for sale?

I made a throw away joke about the budget a week or two ago and how the cuts to tax credits could lead to Dickensian scenes like “boy for sale”. Well it seems I was a little closer to the truth than I thought, if you believe stories coming out of Manchester!

I recall one of the writers for Judge Dredd once commenting that they would sneak in political jokes from time to time as a parody of the modern day…then find a similar thing happening in the real world, which they found really disturbing.
