The various apologists of free market economy and slanderers of the socialist system must get used to a new term: Capitalist queues.
According to an interesting report by The Independent, during rush hour on one of London’s most affluent streets, amid the bustle of the Strand, an orderly queue is forming. Dozens of people stand patiently, and hungrily, waiting for their dinner.
The gathering, near Charing Cross station, comprises people of all ages and ethnicities.
Some look visibly homeless, clutching large carrier bags containing their worldly possessions. Others wear work clothes. Despite having a job, they can’t afford to eat.
