Shocked and saddened to hear the awful news on the fatal stabbings of the two Big Issue sellers on the streets of Birmingham on Friday night. When busking in Brum I meet lots of these guys and have had some really good laughs and chats with them – and their spirit is always positive despite the bleakness of times, conditions and even the weather. This is a tragic event. My thoughts and condolences to all the friends and any family of these lads and people who knew them. http://www.bigissue.com/features/1843/big-issue-mourning
My small involvement in Ian Northcotts charity Socks n Chocs in 2012 http://handinglove.co.uk/socks-and-chocs-for-the-homeless-2012-2/ brought home to me how vulnerable homeless people are…and how for too many years now this society of ours US in other words fail these people. Sorry if my language offends but it’s in anger and frustration more than anything cos ‘IT’S FUCKIN WRONG’ and this so called BIG SOCIETY of Mr fuckin’ David Cameron and his scheming Tory bastard government is FAILING EVERYBODY…Politicians of all partys ARE FAILING!
WAKE UP AND DEMAND BETTER AND FAIRNESS. GREED AND POWER DOMINATES THIS SOCIETY…IT SICKENS ME!
