So I'm watching this programme last night and there's is a segment where it's discussing child labour. Now I don't know much about this subject, if I'm honest .. only really heard about it recently what with easter eggs and Nestle 'n' all that.

So when my friend is telling me why I shouldn't buy a chocolate egg, I was thinking 'Yeah that's terrible' but then last night they are interviewing people in India who are explaining how the regulations on sending there kids out to work is costing them money and increased poverty. Even a kid comes on and says he wants to go to school and go to work.

So now I'm not sure what I think

Eat a choc egg and keep a child and their family alive. That's what it comes down to at the mo, until things change for the better. What more can we do?
