No person should starve in a good,
compassionate country (2018)
The words of a seacoaler from Hartlepool, who describes his job collecting the sand-like coal deposits washed up on the beach; and the words of various Conservative Government MPs, who give their views on benefit claimants and the country's need for food banks.
These quotes are played over the sound of sea at Hartlepool, and electronically manipulated sounds of the seacoaler's shovel on the sand.
Draw your own conclusions.
