Representing Welfare in Modern British

Childhood 1948 – 2012 of Childhood
Empty
Fill me up

Fill me up

Milk of human kindness

Sodden with milky hope

Mother love

We must care for the hungry child

Fill me up

We must care for the sick and the
old

Empty breakfast belly
Dreams and possibilities

Fill me up
Brimful of justice
Education, rights

In the give and take
Surely
We can afford
To fill me up
MMR Vaccine
When I was born, everybody feared me.
Last year, lots of people decided they didn’t want me.

One month ago, people debated for and against me.
One hour ago, my needle sunk into a poor toddler’s smooth skin.
One minute ago, all my excess liquid was poured down the drain.

Now, I am in a hospital bin.
I am the dreaded MMR.
However, what I found completely unacceptable was
the blatant left wing bias, almost bordering on
propaganda… As a charity funded organisation I
would not expect for such comments, over and over
again which made out that new Labour was the best
thing since slice bread and did far more for children
than anyone else and prior to 1997. There should be
absolutely no political bias in an exhibition like this…
I found the political element of the exhibition
unpleasant and weird. There was token multi-culture,
Labour's family groups, Tories - the last thing I'd
expect in an exhibition.
Thought-provoking - good explanation/description of
the changes in childhood, parenting, family structure
and welfare provisions.
The exhibits helped explain the history of childhood
to me. As I am only 9 years old I have a lot to learn.
My particular favourites were Blue Peter as I have a
badge and Muffin the Mule.
