Thanks to John for sending me these two cuttings from Private Eye.
It makes you laugh when you think just how skint so many people in her majesty’s realm actually are and how they struggle to eat, heat and keep themselves alive.
Of course, if Charles (Brian in PI) used transport the way other people do, it probably wouldn’t make THAT much difference you might argue. After all his 10 day trip to the Caribbean, at nearly half a million for transport alone, wouldn’t have paid for the salaries of THAT many doctors or nurses, would it?
But it might have made a little difference to someone being looked after just a little bit better.
Why do we put us with this farce?
