Charity Begging once again

In these times of uncertainty we all look to support our families, communities etc I due to disability watch tv ITV 3 in particular but am, growi g frustrated with Begging Charities every time there is a break.

The one that really is insulting is the middle class women who 'support' girls from Third World to protect them The one says 'my little girl' - the girl in question is NOT your child

These people are your equal not for you to disgustingly claim that you are superior

You were born lucky in a country that is rich Governments need to step up not try to make people feel guilty or like me annoyed by do-gooders whose only aim is to look like a martyr

What is a few pounds every month to them anyway? The egos of these women are sickening

While we pour money into charities the governments of these countries will not take responsibity

By the way, Enoch who has failing eyesight must be a father himself by now not the child the charity portrays

Who do we support? well I for one look after people near and dear to me and this makes me feel I'm helping
