Irrespective of their political persuasion a lot of posters on this site love to inform us how worthy they are.
What do people actually do though ?
Who does vouluntary work? Who contributes significant amounts to charity?
Who works in adult social care or the NHS and if you do , do you do more than your job description?
You are all extremely good at making your views known but do you do more than just waffle?

Hyena, I am extremely rich, I come from a family that has never needed to work and am expecting a substantial inheritance. I was privately educated and, naturally, went on to Oxford to do PPE. I collect fine art, spend a substantal part of the winter somewhere warm and the summer somewhere cool. I have a large staff tendering to my needs, including cook, gardener, butler and chauffeur. And I have, most important of all, a very posh voice. Whatever I say is, therefore, of the greatest import.

Making your views known is not an example of someone trying to show their worthiness. That is just making your views known. Can you provide an example of what you think is someone trying to show how worthy they are.

@Man,I assume if you have views you also have options on how things can can be improved. As an individual you canít make huge changes but you can make small improvements that benefit everyone.
Iím talking about volunteering at food bank, working in a homeless shelter at Christmas that sort of stuff.
Who on this forum does that ?

I am worthy because I don't do any of that crap and leave that to you lesser beings

Clifford, it's "tending" not "tendering".
Anyone who has read Chaucer will know to regard "worthy" with deep distrust.

I hadn't realised I had to do something worthy like volunteer at a foodbank in order to express an opinion.

Yes because doing charity work and helping people makes you a good person. Jimmy Saville did a lot for charity.

I work helping homeless people. Worthy enough for you?
And I help people to get the benefits they're entitled to, on a voluntary basis.
Now, where do I get my "worthy, lefty, do-gooder" badge?

@Man,if you express a strong political opinion , on a subject like homelessness then donít support it practically then yes , in my opinion itís worthless.

On that basis you don't support free speech by the fact you aren't practically supporting it.

I voluntarily pick up litter that other Lewesians and visitors think it's o.k to discard in our streets, open spaces and playgrounds. I couldn't care less about the worthiness or otherwise of the exercise, I just prefer my town to look vaguely nice for everybody to appreciate. P.s. We're doing a litter pick in the High Street down to the Cliffe this Sunday, why not say hello as we go past.......or better still, take your litter home with you so there's less to pick up.

Full marks, Forum Reader. Good to see there are still people in Lewes unable to recognise a joke when they see one.
