    Assuming it is true, and assuming that it would be about the same in the US, that makes 43 million out of our 324 million lonely.

    When you have old people alone at home because the conservative government has cut the NHS to the bone and they cannot get care workers to them this is a good idea much better this than the old being left to die alone and it’s not just the old that are in trouble here

    The idea is actually pretty good. I mean if it is able to make people feel better or even prevent someone from committing suicide it is definitely worth a try

    Starting January 19, 2017 there has been a dramatic emotional shift in the United States. I propose a new cabinet position:
    Secretary of Anger Management. “Does the administration make you want to scream 1-3 times a week, 3-5 times a week, 5-75 times a week? Apply with the Anger Secretary for assistance.”

    Is an American making fun of Britain? Don’t you have enough problems yourself? This isn’t even that funny of an issue, loneliness is a problem, especially for older people.

    I’m from the U.K. I didn’t know about this, it’s quite a sweet idea though. Nice to hear the govt caring about it’s people. I think Stephen is a bit jealous because we all know that under Trump they wouldn’t give a shit about elderly and lonely people. Just like Trump doesn’t give a shit about immigrants, the poor, the environment and on and on

    Loneliness is putting together Ikea furniture by yourself.

    Trump is thinking of setting up a Dept. of Loneliness… Sarah Sanders Huckabee has earned a nice cushy position for when the Press Secretary gig gets too soul crushing.
