Why we have food banks operating across the country including Rotherham

This from the Independent, pretty well says it all about our current Government’s attitude to the poor, to their eternal shame:

Along with the disabled the latest ‘whipping boys’ seem to be the poor and disadvantaged!

What have we all become?

Tory Councillor and his attitude to food banks?

An interesting article about a very obese Tory Councillor Chris Steward and his views on food banks, I wonder what the users of the food banks in Rotherham would think of his comments?

No doubt if this individual lived in the area controlled by Westminster he would have to get fit.
