    It's a vicious cycle in the west. Where parents throw their young teenagers out of the house to work and pay rent for themselves. Then when the parents get old their own children, who now are all grown up and have a family of their own won't look after their parents in old age. This issue must first be addressed when looking at loneliness for elderly people.

    What a ridiculous job title ‘minister of loneliness’ more stupid bureaucracy, when actually it take a little bit of humanity, selflessness and community to help each other out, not giving someone a title, a 50% wage increase and to pay a government body to tackle such a problem, when actually it take a bit of common sense! the problem lies within the community, money that was ripped out of local areas has not been reinvested back into the community!
