A thoughtful and moving response

Thanks to my old pal Jane Harris for tweeting this blog post.

It’s easy for politicians to pontificate on subjects they have no personal experience of, but when it comes to the day to day nitty gritty of real life, I don’t think many of them would cope with the challenge.

And yet they spout nonsense about extended family and communities on a regular basis. Perhaps some of them still live in the 1950s in their heads. The rest of us live in the real world.

Also a very odd week for this particular example-Simon Hughes to come out with this, when the IPPR in their Strained Generation report, highlight a future with less family to care for an increasing number of older relatives.
