Why the 'Homeless Spikes' Deserve the Turner Prize
"On one level, as so much twitter outrage has pointed out, these spikes symbolise the transformation of the homeless into a form of vermin. But their artistic resonance goes further than that.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela: In full, “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice, like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”
