I was going to write an article on this but haven’t had time. I did want to raise the point that David Cameron loves talking about the rise of food banks under Labour – that their use increased 14-fold in the years up to 2010. What these statistics show is that, under his tenure, food bank use have increased by a massive 109 times the number that were originally using them in 2005-6. In that year, food banks were used by 2,814 people; in 2009-10, the last year of Labour government, they were used by 40,898. This year – under Cameron – that total has rocketed to 346,992.
