You say: Us and them.
IN response to P Armitage (ECHO Letters,October 9) I have every sympathy with pensioners and anyone else trying to make ends meet.
What I find sad is that some people in this situation will attack another vulnerable group,in this case asylum seekers,in order to make their point. Asylum seekers have fled from countries where they have been tor-tured,had family members killed by their own government or police and where their own lives are in danger. They undertake dangerous journeys to get here.
I am not aware of any money being ``doled out'' to them.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could all have some compassion for these people who have been through so much - and other marginalised groups in our society -and start to see the similarities between ``us'' and ``them'' instead of always seeing the differences.
This is the only way to change the world for the better.
