Can I recommend this article from, of all places, the Evening Standard.

Is is a surprising powerful piece on poverty in London - I actually find that the start on the article on pauper's funerals is a bit of a diversion from the main point of the article, so feel free to skip to below the first picture.

I found that one of the most striking points was the person who could not afford the £19 for his UCAS form - it would be weeks of saving for him. Also the way the article has of showing he lives in a different world - he simply does not see all the expensive shops - they are not in his world.
