What actually are these £30 food parcels? Are they free donations or are people paying for them (that includes taxpayer)? I haven't read up on this

They are to feed kids provided by the state, previously parents got vouchers to the value of £30 to spend on food (could not be spent on booze, lottery tickets etc - despite what the Mail and Ben Bradley would like people to think), but Bradley and the right wing press posted/published all manner of unsubstantiated bollocks about drug dealers accepting the vouchers hence they were withdrawn and now we are here, with instead of getting £30 worth of food the kids are getting a fivers worth, we are a civilised country apparently.

Let's cut the foreign aid budget.  We need to look after our own.   Hmmm

It's despicable but sadly not a surprise. I hope someone important is held accountable but I won't get my hopes up.

Just for a little bit of balance, Marcus Rashfords Child Food Poverty website has Chartwell as one of its suppliers which does not excuse the lack of food shown one iota but the bread in the picture is dated “best by November”. Something not quite right?

I'm on my one but posted something on Twitter a couple or three weeks back about groceries spends. Asked people how much they thought I'd spent. There was enough for one person for about 10 days to 2 weeks (depending on how much of a greedy cunt you are) but should've done two people and possible a young child for about a week.

There were;
4 x Pork Steaks
8 x Chicken thighs
8 x Bacon Rashers
1kg Rice
500g Pasta
Medium Sliced Loaf
Biscuits
8 x Crisps
2 x tins of toms
1kg Chips
500g Cereal
3 x Bananas
10 x Oranges
300g Mushrooms
500g Butter
4pts Milk
40 Tea Bags

Came to £12.50

I will add I'm pretty skint but I won't plead poverty, of course I will shop thriftly (stingy cunt, call it what you like). Even when it was the ex & I we rarely went over £50 for a weeks shop. I understand larger families of course spending more but you can take advantage of bulk buys/multi buys that won't get wasted so much. Herein I think lies the issue. We generally (as a collective nation) buy way more than we actually consume. Hopefully the trend is happening and becoming common place that any food we don't eat, is sent to a food bank/given to homeless shelters. As long as it's ok. They bloody need it more than us.

We all like a good feed but gluttony in this country is disgusting. The waste it carries with it is the unfortunate friend.

Throwback.

These cunts need to give me their £30 per week per family contract. As was well debated at the time (but importantly genuine), I could get them pretty much enough for a week for about a third of the cost. I reckon for £30 I could get enough to cover a couple and a young kid for about 3weeks.

What a bunch of wankers.

You're assuming they actually give a shit about feeding kids. They don't. It's all about how much of that 30 quid they can claw off into their own pockets.

Somebody (cannot remember who) made a good point about when people complain about the government not doing a good job...

The government are doing a brilliant job of what they're actually there to do - make their mates billionaires and sell off what's left of the country, while blaming marginalised groups and hardworking minorities.

A question that should be put to them; if this country is supposed to be so rich ,prosperous & bountiful, why do so many need food banks and free school meals?

I think it has been out to them several times, and ignored

at least, I've not seen an answer.

All the fucking sensible dads who thought Corbyn was a bit too radical should be having a look at themselves in the mirror right now. All they've done is enable this shower of cunts. And now we've got an opposition leader in Starmer who has so far has been less effective than Marcus Rashford and Les Dennis. Shit state of affairs.
