Many of you will know by now that I'm a regular reader of the Scottish Review and in particular a fan of the journalist Kenneth Roy. My interest in his writings goes way back to the heady days when the Scotland on Sunday was launched, when I thought Scotland would finally have a newspaper which would cover the political contrasts within the country. My dream never materialised.
This post is about Kenneth Roy's latest article in the Scottish Review entitled 'The Silence of the Poor'. Below are a couple of extracts which I'm sure will encourage you to read the whole piece.
