Welcome to the Tory world of food vouchers instead of welfare payments

Just like the USA that hands out food vouchers, we are now drowning in a sea of rhetoric which attacks and points fingers at welfare recipients. Anyone for handing out the horse hair mattresses or are they also a luxury for those finding themselves out of work? You just couldn’t make it up!

Let’s hope Alec Shelbrooke’s debit card blocks him from buying his magnum of champagne…..after all it’s the MPs who have been on the lash at taxpayers expense for the last two decades. I seem to remember a former minister charging Sky TV to us as well. How short their memories. How vicious their hearts.
