Geographic Difference Make For Better Choices
We live in some very challenging times. This was brought home to me recently when away on a short continental break. Being amongst folk you’ve never met before and who you don’t know anything about can be exciting and invigorating. There was a really old chap and his lady wife, both in their late 80s. He had a very distinct accent that pin pointed his origins and everyone on the trip seemed to gravitate towards him because of his infectious humour and sense of fun. He did have some tales to tell of the hardships his community suffered whe the pits were closed down and his sense of betrayal towards the government of the time and all successive ones was almost forgiveable. He was a very powerful orator and his views on state housing and the welfare system seemed amazingly outspoken but very true in the way things have actually turned out.
