open letter to james moore

To the Honourable James Moore, Minister of Industry:

In answer to your recent question, yes, it is your job to feed your neighbour's child. And it's my job, and it's my neighbours' jobs, too. It is all of our jobs to feed every hungry child, because we live in a society, and that's what society is for. It is appalling that anyone in government would ask such a question.

Mr. Moore, you may have been cornered into an apology by public outcry, and of course you tried the old "I was quoted out of context" route, but we know the truth when we hear it. And that comment was the true face of our Conservative government.

I have to say, I really appreciate politicians like Moore, who cut through their parties' PR and spin to let us know what they're really about.

We can only hope they get appropriate gifts in return - Based on what they're really all about, of course . . . .

The Sun ran the letter. Good, that's where people need to read it.
