Beast from the East 2 Coming Our Way


I sometimes wonder why it is that we can ignore something most of the time, then suddenly get very concerned for just a few days a year. I was thinking this last week, looking at the snow falling over the car park as the “beast from the east” brought snow and freezing conditions to our sheltered southern climes. Predictably, for the first time since Christmas, the news focused on the plight of people who were homeless. Equally predictably, as the weather warmed and the news moved its focus, the homeless again came invisible to most of us.
