Yes, you heard that right. 47% of children in Glasgow live in poverty, only 25 miles from £100,000,000,000 worth of nuclear weapons whose only purpose appears to be to maintain the likes of Cameron on the permanent membership of the UN Security Council, no matter how inappropriate that membership is.
While children head off to school with empty bellies from cold homes William Hague appears on television looking desperately serious and what he thinks looks "statesman like" to tell Vladimir Putin a thing or two. How they must laugh in the Kremlin.
But seriously, what kind of people are we that allow this obscene level of poverty and suffering all the time pretending an importance the last vestage of which disappeared forever 70 years ago?
