Many of us tonight sit in our own versions of our Ivory towers… Watching all this unfolding news about the Tory manifesto – or as it may be called – How to lose an election or alienate people.
Not once has the issue of homelessness been raised. I can hear the rain pissing down outside, and my mind thinks to those poor souls camped in shop doorways, graveyards anywhere they can find to hide from the elements.
Whatever dry clothes and belongings they have won’t stay that way for long. It’ll be days before their clothing fully dries out, unless they are lucky enough to receive donations from the many organisations and volunteers in our society.
They are the role models we could and should look up to.
