Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake exposes a truth everyone needs to listen to

I remember living alone at the age of 17, in a flat that I could barely afford the bills for.

Sleeping in two coats and a thick blanket during the depths of winter, because I could not afford heating.

Standing in shops and staying in libraries until they turfed me out, just to feel the warmth.

I am Daniel Blake.
