Strange brew

In her Four Thought, Kate Smurthwaite told us that donkeys receive more in charity than homeless humans. The acres of newsprint and hours of airtime devoted to phone hacking also reveal eccentric priorities, considering the dearth of coverage devoted to the humans, many of them children, who are killed on our roads every day – not through any fault of their own but because of a traffic control system which imposes inferior rights on the vulnerable road-user – in defiance of common law principles of equal rights and responsibilities – and then inconveniences and makes us pay through the nose for additional controls that fail to address the cancer at the heart of the system. I often pitch articles to the press and pitch programmes on the subject to TV, but they aren’t interested.
