Food bank says children are starving. Rees-Mogg finds that ‘uplifting’

Tory darling Jacob Rees-Mogg has described the increased use of food banks as an “uplifting” example of charity – while food banks are warning that they cannot cater for everybody coming to them and people are starving.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is an ignorant, homicidal fool.

A Cornish food bank has said that some children in Cornwall are literally facing starvation, as it called for a welfare system that does more to help struggling families before they reach crisis point.

The Camborne Pool and Redruth foodbank, which helps low-income households in one of the most deprived regions in the country, hands out 10,000 meals to hard-up households every month.

Donovan Gardner, who works at the foodbank, says he is often struck by the severe plight faced by families who are struggling to afford food for their children.

Mr Gardner said: “We know there are children out there starving and that really does hurt.

    Why anyone in Cornwall votes Tory is a complete mystery to me.
    Food bank premises are being sought for a food bank at the Lizard, Cornwall.
    When that happens (there is no if,) practically every town and large village in Cornwall will have a food bank. Demand can only go up.

    It has always been Tory intentions to take the country back to the 19th century. This is part of the process, which is why the odious and loathsome Rees Mogg is so pleased.

    JR_M is head of the Tory “Neo-Feudalist Think Tank” he wants UK to return to Feudalism, where the Ruler and Robber Barons get everything, everyone is else is forced to do whatever menial work they can get, and if they can’t work any more they are left to starve to death. JR-M has been busy for years, behind the scenes, and much of the division, unfairness and cruelty of the last 3 Tory “governments” have been busily implement JR-M’s theories. Feudalism + Neo-Liberalism, not good, not good at all.

    Not only that he said the reason food bank use increased under Tories is that Tories told people about them and Labour NEGLECTED TO DO SO!!!
