Mother COLLAPSES FROM HUNGER after two mile walk with toddlers to food bank

Last Updated: January 14, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Food bank: Parents who have jobs are being forced to visit food banks because they aren’t being paid enough – at a time when the Conservatives are pushing wage increases well below inflation. The result is that people who are fully-employed are passing out due to lack of food, on the way to the food banks.

The only thing that could make this worse for the Tory government is if the mum was also an NHS nurse.

A mum collapsed of exhaustion and hunger after walking two miles with a pair of toddlers to reach a South Tyneside food bank.

The team from Hospitality and Hope in Hampden Street, South Shields, arranged for the family to be taken home and emergency food support to be provided.

As part of the Household Support Fund administered by South Tyneside Council, the family was also given access to support for gas so they could stay warm.

It turns out that both parents have jobs.

But the cost of paying their bills has now overtaken their collective income. The parents had been going without food in order to keep the children nourished.

All this in the sixth-richest country on the planet, due to Conservative Party government.

And it’s nearly two years until we can change the UK’s direction of travel with a general election.

My only hope is that people take it a little more seriously next time – especially everybody who didn’t think politics had anything to do with them – if they survive the current freeze and don’t starve.

    I realise you need to earn money from posts, but is there any way you can stop the ads from live who feature pics of scantily dressed, Instagram pouty women from, for example, western Europe, appearing on the feed

      The bad news, as I’ve explained to several other readers, is that the ads are selected by Google Adsense to reflect what the readers appear to want to see! Clearly, from what you’re saying, they’ve made a mistake this time.

    ‘Not our problem guv’ say the fascist tories ‘because we aren’t going hungry and we have well paid jobs as fake MPs and ministers! Anyway all those ‘scroungers can just get another job and work 24/7! It’s that simple! We fascist tories aren’t in power to support women, children and men who are failing to earn sufficient money no we corrupt fascist tories are in power to steal all the public money so that our wealthy fascist tory donors can increase their wealth!’

    Shameful that little england is now a country wherein innumerable women, children and men are starving simply because the fascist tory dictatorship refuses to act as a government and instead exists only to increase their individual wealth!
