Letter: Short of money? Spend wisely
12:20pm Friday 10th August 2012 in Readers' letters
I have experienced hard times – I have been made redundant four times (Food Bank to be set up in Blackburn, LT, August 7).
The government is not making life easy, but when you see bigger queues at the Lottery counter than the food checkouts, when you see pubs and bookies heaving with customers, when you see Sky dishes going up like mushrooms, when you see folks paying daft prices for fancy coffees, when you see folks jabbering away on their mobiles, when you see folks sending for a taxi or a takeaway, somehow one can’t get one’s head around the fact that people are going hungry.
However little money you have, it is a question of how you manage it.
