With the news that £250million has miraculously been found for bins to be emptied on a weekly basis there's been a thing going round twitter about what the money could be better spent on and I pointed out that it would provide a year's worth of weekly music therapy for 500,000 disabled people such as my son.
Music therapy is probably the oldest form of therapy there is, from the first time a caveman started banging bones on rocks no doubt. It's also recognised as one of the best therapies there is as many find it easier to communicate through mediums such as this, not to mention the basic fact that it gets people together. Surely more important than a weekly bin collection you might think?
Well not for some.
One reply I got was that the person wanted their bins collected weekly and people could just listen to the radio.
This is the world we're living in. A world where people simply don't care about anything other than their own comfy lives in suburbia.
And people wonder why I get angry!
