‘The stark health inequalities in Glasgow are demonstrated by the drop in life expectancy of 2 years for men and 1.2 years for women for each station on the railway line between Jordanhill and Bridgeton.’
Yes. This tragically exists. The BBC did a documentary on it… it was based on the ‘Shettleston Man’. When I watched it, the journalist was walking around and visited a pub in the area prior to lunchtime and there were a couple of 50-60 year olds in there. When he asked one man that was drinking his Tennent’s lager what he had to eat that day, the response was “food? Do we look like wummin to you?” Incidentally, the pub had no female toilets.
