Treat our own first

Sunderland Echo - - Opinion -

As a na­tion we strug­gle to pro­vide enough hous­ing and do not have the money to re­pair roads.

There are coun­cils that are nearly bank­rupt and there­fore not able to fund so­cial care for the el­derly and chil­dren ser­vices.

So why was it re­vealed last week that we are send­ing aid to the United States and other rich coun­tries?

The NHS, Po­lice, and Fire and Am­bu­lance Ser­vices, as well as all our Armed Forces would ben­e­fit more from the money that is go­ing abroad.

Then there are those pen­sion­ers on low in­comes, who are forced to choose be­tween eat­ing or heat­ing. We should be­come a na­tion that treats its own first. Scott An­drews
