In it together? As those who don't have a home
WE are all in it together, so we were told by you know who. I am sure there are many homeless people who would love to be in it together, given the same chance as the following:
William and Kate, gifted a 10-bedroom mansion by the Queen on the Sandringham Estate. How many homeless or, come to that, any ordinary young couples would like a gift like that from their grandmother?
Then there's the old Battersea Power Station, where homeless people used to doss before being cleared off. Within two years this will be the new des res of London. Rich buyers have snapped up £600 million worth of the properties in four days – and not a brick laid yet. The highest price paid is for a penthouse, at £6 million.
Who's got that sort of money? Not the folks struggling to pay for their heating and food and certainly not the homeless.
So let's all shout it together, to see if it's true: "We're all in it together." Wow, the silence is deafening.
