I’ve commented on this before. Life for many people in Mexico is too hard. You don’t have to walk the streets for long to see why – the destitute, crippled and abandoned. Life in the UK can be too easy. You don’t have to walk the streets for long to see why – the welfare funded druggies, bums and chavs. We, as a society, have to find a balance when providing help. Neither UK nor Mexico has it right.
Charity alone is not the answer. Anyone arguing it is, is an idiot. Or evil. One or the other. No middle ground here. Pure and simple. Sorry if you disagree and feel offended. Charity is a good thing, of course. I used to watch parts of the Teleton with Paola. Some of the stories are heartbreaking. I’ve heard a few negative things about what happens to some of the money that is donated at Teleton. It puts me off a bit. But I’m still sure they put a lot of money to people who do a lot of very good work.
