14 million UK citizens are now in poverty and Rishi Sunak wants to ‘stop the boats’

Need a miracle: but people in poverty won’t get it from the Tories.

When is someone going to tell the prime minister that his priorities are rubbish?

With a million adults unable to afford to eat every day, nine million skipping meals and a record 2.1 million using food banks, Rishi Sunak’s top priority is stopping small boats full of refugees from crossing the English Channel – a problem a Tory government created by botching Brexit.

Feeding the nation – or at least giving us the wherewithal to feed ourselves – is a minor issue for Sunak. He seems to think, like Suella Braverman, that crops have been rotting in our fields because there’s a legion of unemployed people claiming benefits instead of getting up and working.

He’s mistaken. Remember, 40 per cent of people claiming Universal Credit are in work; they have to claim because their employers simply don’t want to pay them enough to cover the cost of living. So those benefit payments are subsidising fatcat businesspeople, not the claimants.

And then Sunak and his cronies complain that people are sponging off the state.

From this, it is easy to deduce that the remuneration for people who would have to relocate – move home somewhere else – in order to pick crops isn’t enough to make it worthwhile and Sunak would do better by allowing EU workers into the UK to do it instead.

But another of his main priorities is to reduce migration, so he’s not going to do that.

All in all, it seems the biggest obstacle to prosperity for people in the UK is… Rishi Sunak and his Tory government.

Here’s Peter Stefanovic to explain it briefly for you:

And by the way, if you’re a middle-class professional, complacently sitting around saying you don’t care because it doesn’t affect you – just remember Sunak will be targeting you next.

    Sunak and his tory criminal Cartel do not work for Britain or the British people. They only work for those who bribe them the most. They continually steal from the tax payers,continually lie, continually committing criminal acts like theft and corruption,abusing public office, cruelty, and social murder….They are above the law, and do what they like! Starmer and his racist, fake labour tory party are just as bad!
