There are four frames in which two small boys are chatting about the Live 8 concert and world poverty. They have been made aware of the fact, because of the concert, that there is poverty in the world unlike anything they have seen. They realise that Warehouse bargains are bargains because of the cheap labour that allows the production of cheap goods. The implication is a realisation of the dilemma faced by the comparatively wealthy that eliminating poverty could mean a reduction in the standard of living for themselves.

Historical Notes: Live 8 was a series of concerts that took place in July 2005, in the G8 nations and South Africa. They were timed to precede the G8 Conference and Summit held at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland from July 6-8, 2005; they also coincided with the 20th anniversary of Live Aid. Running parallel with the UK's Make Poverty History campaign, the shows planned to pressure world leaders to drop the debt of the world's poorest nations, increase and improve aid, and negotiate fairer trade rules in the interest of poorer countries.
