Fu* k off Kevin Watson, ar*ehole! Why don't you write about cruel child slavery of Victorian England, beset by class.
Child labour is in every poor country. In any case the picture does not paint such a cruel fate as English chimney sweep children and the poor souls working in the mines and under the looms.
Readers are advised to research into how cruel England was to English children of the working class in a rich England at the expense of the colonies.
Journalists deliberately ignoring historical facts and economic realities must be condemned. Go to India and Brazil to see how the slum children live there.
Burmese govenment must do more but that is no business of colonist journalists of England.
