I feel I should make people who work in the fields of charity, and advertising aware that, in my fifty three years on this planet, I have never seen a newspaper, or television advert that has prompted me to donate to a cause.

Feel free to continue to swamp my existence with these sob stories, although I'd rather you didn't but you should know, I'm not the only person who feels this way.
Having said that, I assume the sob stories work on enough people to continue to finance your industries.

Those people should be aware that many of these issues were issues before I was born, and will remain issues long after I'm gone.

This suggests to me, that this kind of advertising, doesn't solve any issues but does manage to continue to finance begging, charity advertising.

Britain preach endlessly about democracy.
They have destroyed the very structure of countries, all in the name of democracy.
They look down their noses at countries that aren't ruled by a leader who was elected democratically.

I'm not attacking, nor defending the outcome of the vote.
My problem is with the way commentators are being so condescending about the majority of people who took part in the democratic vote.

If you voted to leave Europe, you're a racist, you were mislead by Politician's lies, or you're just plain stupid.

I've never seen the outcome of a vote analysed in such a fashion.
I have however, previously seen Politician's lie, and make promises that weren't kept, for the purposes of winning an election.
In those circumstances, the Politician's were rightly critcised but I don't recall the intelligence of voters ever being judged for believing the lies and promises.
