The front page Nairnshire Telegraph article on the growing debt crisis affecting many families in the County is disturbing reading and full marks to the Leopold Street news team for bringing this to the public's attention.
Iain Bain writes in his editorial: "There is something shocking to hear that food parcels are being handed out locally on a large scale. We are used to hearing about this in the context of charitable organisations mounting campaigns in the case of disaster or Third World Relief. That the fund-raising efforts might be put to use for families close to home is a real surprise."
Iain goes on to highlight how this is an election issue and, yes indeed, it is something that candidates should be debating. If you do nothing else this week read that front page article and the associated editorial. For those of us with full bellies this lunchtime the shocking revelations are indeed food for thought.
