It seems that studying Plato, master of the philosophical analogy has rubbed off on me. In a system in which the interlinking of government and capitalism has created a politically endorsed economy, the original foundations have been oft neglected and I wanted to get back to how, at least in theory, our public and private sectors interlink.
One mention of food banks and we are all supposed to break out the Andrex tissues, wipe away our tears of sympathy and empty our cupboards into the nearest food bank donation box. Unsurprisingly, my eyes are as dry as they were at my mother-in-law's funeral. Gove says food bank users have themselves to blame for being "unable to manage their finances". I agree.
