Election fever has reached is max today and in amongst all this I was drawn back to the reality of what we already have in our society. David Cameron is pleading with us to vote for change and Nick Clegg urging us to do something different.
Sally, our worker in Huddersfield mentioned to me today that one of the people she is supporting has received an Anti-Social Behaviour Order that bans her from a Biffa bin. This is because she was sleeping in it for a while and was causing a few problems for ‘normal people’. I’m feeling very doubtful that either David’s change or Nick’s difference will do much to move us towards a society that doesn’t accept people living in bins. I for one find it embarrasing that not only that but we also use the criminal justice system to somehow blame this individual for the behaviour that a failing society has produced.
Sorry for getting a bit ranty! but politician’s teach us all to point the finger and most of the answers are not about blaming others but taking some responsibility and doing something to create change!
