"What I see is the failure of society"

Poverty is rife in the UK, but it's even more so across the Atlantic - an embarrassing state of affairs for the country that is supposedly the most developed and wealthiest in the world. You would hope that the observations of Philip Alston - the UN's special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights - would be enough to shame Trump and his cronies. To date, though, they've proven themselves to be utterly shameless and sadly it's hard to see that changing. All that can be hoped for, perhaps, is that Doug Jones' victory over Roy Moore in Alabama is an indication that Trump's days as president are numbered.
