WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH?

Last night I watched the documentary WHAT BRITAIN EARNS
and I was seriously shocked that whilst in a combat situation, a British soldier can earn less than £2.50 an hour! However,during the program the presenter said that he doubted whether a soldier thought about his hourly rate when he went into a battle situation! My reaction was BULLSHIT, that was probably the first thing they thought of, along with I DO NOT GET PAID ENOUGH TO TAKE THIS KIND OF CRAP.
The same as everyone else, I do not agree with war but I certainly believe that we need to support the army when they are doing their job and less than £2.50 an hour is certainly not supporting them. A family cannot live on that when it costs over £1 for a litre of petrol and a loaf of bread costs approximately £1.

Yesterday I went out to Porthkerry to take some photographs to use in my current art project.I am creating the picture in a surrealist format and so I want to include elements in the picture of things and places that mean a lot to me.

People won't even clean toilets for £2.50 an hour - quite rightly. That's absolutely appalling. How much does an MP make per hour I wonder?

Did any one see So You Think You Can Be A Single Parent?
I didn't watch it because I have no desire to see how celebrities would cope in these situations but I would love to see the decision makers in this this country cope with the situation.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
