But surely there is something wrong with a society where political parties are busy spending millions on their annual conferences, but we cannot find the money needed to give a three-year-old girl a chance of a better future.
MPs claim more than that in a single day's expenses.
I wish Joe-Anne every success in her fund-raising, but we truly live in a sick society that puts a mother in that position in the first place.
I HAVE just booked two seats at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for a concert on December 21.
The two seats cost £32.50 each, a total of £65. To send the tickets the short seven mile journey to Paisley I was charged a £2 booking fee per SEAT.
I was then charged an online booking fee of £1, together with standard postal charges, bringing the extra costs to £5.75, and making my tickets actually cost £70.75, almost 10% more than the ticket price if I had turned up at the box office and taken up a staff member's time.
This is sheer profiteering on an already expensive ticket. If I book online it should cost less, not more, than taking up staff time at the box office.
RECENTLY, responsible dog owners in my area received unnecessary letters from our housing association about a dog fouling problem – even the people who didn't have dogs got letters.
There is no major dog fouling problem in our area. There is, however, a littering problem which is caused by children, some of who don't live here, throwing sweet wrappers, crisp packets and bottles and cans.
Their parents are as bad because they do not encourage their children to use bins in the area.
If parents would teach their children to put their rubbish in the bin then no such litter problem would exist.
