Market Forces

'Lizzie' begging, originally uploaded by Colonel Blink.

The news follows my photography! What better epitaph for Milton Friedman the inspiration behind Thatchernomics than a photograph of a heroin addict with severe mental health problems, homeless because her lifestyle is so chaotic, rough sleeping because she is too violent for any hostel to take her, begging on the streets.

Every time I see her and think of the political decisions that have helped her to which ever doorway she is sitting in I am reminded of Nye Bevan's verdict on The Conservative Party; "Less than vermin".

"Hug a hoodie". Don't make me laugh. There are only two sides. Which one are you on?

Don't bother commenting I shall only delete it.
