Isn’t this exactly how Theresa May would react if someone asked her to contribute to her local food bank?

Will she do the decent thing and spend some of her vast prime ministerial salary on supplies for the people her policies have so deliberately driven to destitution?

I think we all know the answer to that.

The Daily Mirror‘s article describes the fact that her local foodbank is begging for help as Mrs May’s shame – but the fact is that she has no shame at all.

That’s why she is still hanging on as prime minister, when she should have handed the country over to Jeremy Corbyn more than a month ago.

Theresa May’s local foodbank is appealing for urgent supplies to stop poorer kids going hungry in the school holidays.

While the Prime Minister presses on with austerity, Maidenhead Foodshare needs locals to “plug the gaps that society leaves”.

Mrs May … became PM after claiming she wanted to help struggling families and those who are “just about managing”.

But she has not deviated from the austerity path.

Her latest move is a £5 billion tax cut for the biggest corporations while refusing to halt welfare cuts for families or scrap the one per cent public sector pay cap.

Let us also bear in mind the fact that Mrs May’s election manifesto included a plan to scrap free school dinners.

Mr Corbyn, of course, has responded to the situation in his own polite way:

It’s polite… but, of course, it’s also devastating.
