chazwin what a shame you had to spoil what is a lovely thread by politicising it. I was so enjoying reading what posters were saying until I came to yours. So what have I learned this year.....
That there are people who always have to put forward their political views no matter what and spoil it for other people.
While my political views are not necessarily the same as those of Chazwin, I would not bother with this website/forum if all the posts were sugar coated, inane, small talk. This year, I learned that wealthy footballers need to inform themselves about the complexities of an issue before shouting loud with over simple, sticking plaster solutions to glorify themselves. I brought up two well nourished children on benefits. The issues begin with educating parents about food - when Home Economics/Domestic Science in schools was abolished, a whole generation of new parents was deprived of this crucial part of life skills learning. Telling people 'you must eat 5 a day' does not cut it. Charity is an awful solution, it takes away people's dignity. Food banks should never have been allowed to become a normal part of our society - they started because of the obscene waste of supermarkets - that wasting needs to be addressed and everyone needs to have enough good food to eat - through solutions that enable people to keep their dignity. And as an aside, exactly how much of his fortune did Marcus Rashford donate?
