Cameron and food banks
 
I saw him in a clip on the tv, saying "We have made food banks more available to those that need them"; well, he certainly has made more need for food banks by his policies. But what would he know about food for the poor ? After all, he would be quaffing Dom Perignon champagne and eating Beluga caviar, stuff you don't see much of down at the food banks. His mansions will also have lots of spare bedrooms. The rich assigning policies for the poor when they have never experienced such a lifestyle, is distasteful.

So your thread isn't about food banks at all. It is just another opportunity to say spiteful things about Cameron.

And I agree with Petertard

There shouldn't be any need for food banks in this country and their growing need simply highlights the failure of government.

Good thinking. It'll never catch on, though.

Indeed, they mushroomed tenfold under Labour.

Ah the deflection, but off the mark. It was Cameron we were talking about, and his comments

I would not feel so bad about bedroom tax if only they to felt the burden that the poor are feeling e.g 1400.00 per week should cover it for every spare bedroom in the stately homes they own that have no one sleeping in them just think how many homeless would be rehoused?

Delboy219 18-04-2013 17:42

Getting a bit fed up with all the deflection by the mental mob. It's the same shite every day. I'll give the members on the left their due, they seem like real people, and their DS content doesn't look like spambot's in action.

Honestly, if i said i stubbed my toe this morning, some numpty would jump in and blame Labour. :rolleyes:

Have you seen one of the Thatcher Funeral threads? Tories in their are claiming it was Gordon Brown who signed off Maggie's funeral there for his fault it cost ten million lol

They are scrapping the bottom of the barrel now.

I find this astonishing I would have expected foodbanks in a country whos finances had been drained in a world war. WTF is going on. Our Governments who allow this to happen on their watch should be embarrassed, ashamed of themselves, if they are not then we need a revolution to rid us of these people for good.

It's even worse than that, they are actually saying how great it is.

What the hell is going on!!

In case you missed it, there is a 1 trillion debt and a 108 billion deficit to service.

Benefits come way down the list of priorities.

So pay people to supply food banks rather than give the people in need money to buy what they need?. Do try some joined up thinking for a change

BiB, looking at the front benches of the three main parties I would say that none of them have any real idea of what it's like to be poor. Added to that is a large growing number of them that have ate, drank and slept politics from such a young age that they don't have much experience of the world outside their political bubble.

I wonder why you start a thread accusing only one party of being like that when, IMHO they're all like that.

Is he serious? For the most part you have to jump through hoops for some official to issue a voucher to use the foodbank. This will get you 3 days non perishable food. You are limited to using the food bank only 3 times. It's ridiculous.

They will get exactly what they from the food banks and nothing of what they don't need.

I already do joined up thinking thank you very much, that's why I don't need food banks.

Yes thanks to Osborne and his growth stifling plans.

If you really cared about debt you wouldn't be supporting that growth stunting inept buffoon.

Food banks are a way of telling people that they should be grateful for what other people in society give them.
It is the antithesis of charity, it is a way of looking down on people and degrading them. Time to put that thinking into joined up mode.
