School meals through secondary school were fantastic. Only poor meal we got was spam fritters but even then we used to eat them without complaint. No chips ever but Miss Furnell's beef and veg stew was to die for as was her rice pudding with doughnuts

Rice pudding WITH donuts ? 
that is decadent

Thought I would offer an insight into the School Meal Voucher scheme being used to provide vouchers to those parents and children that need it desperately.  The scheme is provided by Edenred a co

This sermon is brought to you by the Daily Mail. Victim-blaming repugnant nonsense. 

You need to completely change your perspective. Do you think they don’t realise how dangerous is?  They don’t have other options. Of course it’s dangerous but the alternative, for most, is l

All very good as a protest group. But as extremists how are you going win over voters in an election? Answer: you won't, in fact you're more likely lose your deposit than win a seat. You can't change anything without power., so you're wasting your time and your vote

School dinners were for wimps. Dinner time was for playing football on a nearby rec. We'd dash across town for a bag of broken biscuits each then it was blazers down for goals. That's probably why I was 5' 8" at 15 and I'm 5' 8" now !

When I was serving my time all the apprentices would dash to the chip shop for a pie and chips and then it was up to an un used car park for more football. Trying to run with the ball and eat a meat pie at the same time helps your balance enormously, I can recommend it !

I'm wasting a vote voting for anyone where I live given the Tories have a 20000 majority in my constituency. Also I'm not a member of the party I just said that politically it is probably the party that I am closest to. I have actually never been a member of a political party.

Someone who will let the Tories in again?

Edit---forget it, just seen your post above. Doesn't matter does it? But if we had plural voting.....

Hancock in his briefing says Johnson has been communicating with Rashford. 

Rashford says they haven't since the summer and Downing Street say they are unaware of any communication between the two. 

They just cannot stop lying. How can people support this lot when they continually lie.

Cannot keep up with the sheer nastiness of this Government.

Dominic Raab was a member of a secret Facebook group called the Ultras that advocated bringing back workhouses for the poor.

It depends where you live. It may be a good wage for you in the North West of England but down here in the South West it is far from a good wage, in fact its well below average.

So you live in the South West of England? 

Its cracking wage in the North West of England imo. That's what I was basing my opinion on since this is where I live. The wage I am on considering how many hours I work and the shift pattern is more than reasonable imo

Johnson has just admitted he hasn’t spoken to Rashford since June.

1) WHY does this minister continually lie to the British public. WHY?

2) WHY do people continue to defend him, or refuse to criticise him? What’s happened to the standards that our politicians used to abide by?

Have to say those are the questions. I've no idea why they are exempt from criticism for repeatedly lying. I don't see how people consider them trustworthy. I mean you wouldn't have a mate or do business or trust a doctor who continually lied and twisted the facts. Why does it not matter in this case. 

As for why they continually lie I suspect it's because we are asking the second question. Simply.they are not held to account even when they do. 

Would love a Tory supporters view on this although am on the ignore list for pointing out Tory failings. (I'm fairly confident it can't be for personal abuse or the like...)

They funding local councils to make sure Children can eat out of school term providing them with 63 million pounds. Given local councils the local responsibility to supply children's parents with foods for them whether its a warm or cold meal. Hopefully warm meal with it's being almost winter time now

Copy and pasted from a Tory Twitter or Facebook page no doubt. And completely misses the point.

No they aren’t.
There is no specific money available for councils to fund school meals outside term times. The money you and they are talking about is for universal credit top up and that’s used for various necessary funding to “some” people with needs other than school meals.

Universal credit has been top up by 1k a year. 

Den, as I posted yesterday the Government has provided money to local council leaders so they can decide what is needed as different towns/areas will have different needs/priorities. My town Hyndburn will have different needs to Skipton or Great Yarmouth or Weymouth. 

Hyndburn got over 650k in unringfenced money so councils leaders can decide how to spend the money.

Do you think that the Tories have done a good job on child poverty? Which decreased from 4 million to 2.6 million under 13 years Labour and under 10 years of the Tories has risen back up to 4.1 Million and is expected to rise to 5.2 million in the next 2 years. It would seem to me clear to me that either the Tories have no idea how to decrease child poverty or simply don't care.

I can tell you one thing Chaddy a 25K a year salary wouldn't get you very far in the Weymouth area.

25 k isn’t much above the minimum wage 

Steady. Minimum wage on a 40hr week is about 18k.

So, it's about 38% higher then. 

Although, I get people work overtime/longer shifts to get above the 18k.
