Feeding the poor
4:30pm Monday 18th March 2013 in Letters
OVER the past decade, while the Green Party was putting social justice firmly at the heart of its agenda, the other parties, Labour included, were promoting policies designed to make it easier for the most well-off to get richer in the vain hope that some of their wealth would trickle down to the poorest in our community.
Has Labour finally woken up (Letters, March 8) to the fact that expecting the poor to feed from the crumbs of the rich man’s table is no basis for a society based on fairness and equality?
As many of us who have been aware of this truth work hard to alleviate the worst effects of years of financial mismanagement by governments of every persuasion, let us judge Labour by their actions rather than their words.
