Human Life First Please.

“It’s a question of us prioritising.” James Bullion was quoted as telling us in the Eastern Daily Press yesterday. Mr Bullion is the Assistant Director of Community Services for Norfolk County Council. He was speaking about the proposed cuts at a meeting of the Norwich Older People’s Forum.

I don’t know exactly what their priorities are; I suspect from their consultation document many are to facilitate financial profit for private agencies.

But surely some of the things that come first in any public services context; in any humanitarian context are:


  • preventing hardship

  • alleviating pain

  • reducing hunger and poverty

  • facilitating and maximising recovery from illness

  • offering disabled people some quality of life




  • and preventing unnecessary deaths.


We live in a society with mainly sick and twisted values.
