Here is food for Thought…
Believe it or not in order to cut unnecessary spending it is proposed that free meals for schoolchildren of low income families will be axed in the forthcoming cuts. What have these children done to deserve these cuts, nothing other than the class they were born into? Yet the Government intends to punish them by taking away what is for some the only meal or only hot dinner they have each day.
Last year the Lords and your MPs spent £1.5 billion on their own free dinners which are funded by you – the tax payer, (otherwise known as Free Meals for the Rich!) So you may not be in a position to pay for your own child to have a hot meal each day, but fear not because you will be safe in the knowledge you are paying for a Lord or an MP to enjoy a luxurious lunch.
I dare you all to ask your MPs and Lords to cease their expense claims for free meals and for them all to insist that the annual “MPs and Lords dinner money budget in the UK” is handed over to feed these needy school children instead. It is not as if the Lords and MPs cannot afford to purchase their own lunch, is it?
Picture in your mind the child sat in a classroom, confused and unable to concentrate properly simply because the lunch that child used to rely on is no longer available. Contrast that with the Lords and MPs sat at a table in a five star hotel or restaurant, spending on average £100 per person per sitting. In the right hands, that £100 can feed 40 hungry children in our schools instead. Question, do you feed one adult or 40 children for the same sum of money?
Feed one adult or feed 40 children … please support us – Vote “Feed the Children” – they have committed no crime, please not let’s not make them pay
