During the last year there have been many letters in The Star blaming the Tories for this and Labour for that.
During my 75 years two outstanding social issues stick out in my mind.
I was 40 years of age before I saw my first beggar on the streets of Sheffield. This was during the Thatcher Tory government period in office.
I was 70 years of age before I knew of the need for food banks. This was in the Cameron/Clegg Tory-led coalition.
Maybe these are the type of events that we should be considering before casting our votes in May.
