I think that I have been going about things the wrong way.
The things that are happening to me are also happening to other people.
I grew up during the war, my childhood was playing in the sooty Sheffield Streets, where the occasional vehicle would stop until we had cleared away our goal post jackets. The drivers didn't scream at us for being in the way, they joked with us. We would have food parcels sent to us from America and other places, if for some reason anyone didn't get one they were helped out by the neighbours. It was made sure that no-one went without. The poorest people were the best at sharing.
In my street we had refugees from Russia, Poland, Italy etc. An old russian lady who lived on her own used to wait for somone to pass and would indicate that she needed a needle threaded, she had the needle and thread with her. I wonder who she was and what was she sewing? We had municipal restaurants where we could eat a three course meal for pennies
We had doctors that would open a surgery up to 10 o-clock at night.
There were hospitals that were clean and had crisp uniformed nurses who used to smile and filled you with confidence and would sit and hold your hand.
We, by the hundreds, would be evacuated in our beds , by the dedicated nurses, to the cellars almost nightly, when the air raid sirens sounded. This was organised by an even crisper matron, who knew everything. Even doctors had to defer to her.
Now, 70 years later. What improvements we have made! Same words different ending What improvements have we made?
Now, we have greed, inefficiency and the ripping of food out of the neighbours hand, the poverty of children and the closing of the mouth and ears to wrongs that are happening in plain sight and hearing of us.
The, "We can't draw attention to ourselves otherwise we may end up inthe same situation" attitudes.
We have politicians that cheat and steal using the laws that they have made with accidental loopholes. They then mention the holes to close friends so that they can also benefit. We chop benefits from the needy. We have politicians that beg for money.
Recently a politician who will remain nameless asked if I had any questions. My question was,"What will you do about the corruption in our politics" they answered," I'm only one person."
We give money to other nations and we have hungry kids. We don't give money to other nations and we have hungry kids.there and still have starving kids here
Yes we do have nice people
Do we have a comparable and efficient Nhs?
When will we stop killing people to prove that our god is better
We must also keep on blaming the aged, after all they had a good and prosperous trouble free life
I did help the invalided lady today.
