Current Affairs

Many current affairs blogs are authored by people ranting and raving (and I'm one of them) about the cost of this or that, and how we should we topple Livingstone and his blasted Congestion Tax? Then we whinge and moan about Lord Levy, gas prices or the failings of Watford Football Club or Mr Timothy Ireland.
Well, let's just reflect for a moment on just how very lucky us UK-based Bloggers really are.
Tomorrow, as I'm sure most of you know by now, I'm off to do a trek in the Foothills of the Maasai on behalf of a breast cancer charity. How many of you aware of the living conditions in Tanzania and Kenya? Well let me tell you, it's not like having a job, a season-ticket at Spurs, a three-bedroomed house in Highgate, a wife and 2.4 children and a set of Tiger Woods golf clubs. Out in Kenya and Tanzania, you'd be lucky to get the .4 of a child.
Every now and again, we need to get off our pompous high-horses and remember those who are considerably worse off than us.

Goodnight.
