It began with a BBC Panorama programme in early 2014. It has ended with an All Party Parliamentary report just before Christmas. From start to finish, 2014 became the year in which it has become clear that food banks are far more than a response to a crisis occasioned by the recent recession. Even as the economy grows and employment with it, the number of those presenting with genuine food poverty in Britain continues itself to grow, and rapidly. What's going on?

There is a wall of ignorance standing between victims of domestic violence and the rest of us. The constant question "why doesn't she just leave him?" has such a simple answer: she fears she will be killed.

Last Night's Panorama Wasn't Balanced, It Was Racist

Steve Rose | Posted 16.02.2014 | UK Politics
Steve Rose

This edition of Panorama is merely a symptom of the wider discourse around immigration. A debate so toxic that facts are shouted down in a wave of popular fascism. But it also threatens our relationship with Europe and our right to free movement. On both fronts, we should all be worried about where this debate is heading in 2015.
