Where do they all come from?

All the lonely people in the U.K. will soon have someone attempting to minister to their plight. So be it.

It seems that many, many folks are badly affected by solitude - so this is a great initiative for such folks IMO.
As I've gotten older it has become very plain to me that contact with others tends to sort of ebb and fade away; My very closest friend lives thousands of miles away & it is very likely that we will not be able to visit anymore.
(Good thing for phones, yes ?!?)
