Starve a Kid to Save a Quid

‘Starve a Kid to Save a Quid’ goes viral in the wake of the government’s disastrous attempt to starve poor school kids whilst Tory MPs deservedly get banned from shops and restaurants

Shared on Twitter this morning by @WhatEuroPinion, a poster placed “in a shop window in lovely Lancashire” perfectly sums up public opinion in reaction to the government’s decision to vote to not fund the feeding of poor children.

 

The notice pictured stated:

 

“POLITE NOTICE – David Morris MP is barred from entering this store for voting to starve children.”

 

“Along with 322 other Conservative MPs, he voted against extending free meals for kids.”

 

“He has been listed one of the top ten MPs claiming expenses with £77,676.00 so far.”

 

“He has also voted to give himself a pay rise of nearly £3,400.00.”

 

“Thatcher starved the miners, Morris starved the minors.”

 

Whilst elsewhere even usually amongst the right wing drum bangers Nigel Farage and Sarah Vine – whom condemned the policy stating: “Short of drowning a basket of puppies live on air, I can’t think of a worse communications fail” this morning – shot down the “Marcus Rashford/free school meals debacle,” another image that went viral summed up the policy perfectly.

 

Featuring a shot of the Tory leader and chancellor of in the House of Commons, it was accompanied by Boris Johnson asking: “Rishi, what’s the new slogan to follow ‘Eat Out to Help Out’?” and Sunak replying: “Starve a Kid to Save a Quid.”

 

Shame on the lot of them.

Starve a Kid to Save a Quid – Marcus Rashford/free school meals debacle slammed – ‘Starve a Kid to Save a Quid’ goes viral in the wake of the government’s disastrous attempt to starve poor school kids.
Starve a Kid to Save a Quid – Marcus Rashford’s campaign should have been supported. Instead, the government’s own goal in opposing it has been universally slammed.
Starve a Kid to Save a Quid – The government’s decision to starve poor children has unsurprisingly caused a national uproar at a time when MPs shamelessly voted to award themselves a £3,400 per annum pay rise.

  1. Grow up.
    Everyone has access to social services. There is no need for children to be without.
    It’s about time people who have children took responsibility for their families and stopped expecting the tax payer to bail them out at every turn.
    It is pathetic and lacks consideration for those who have real needs because of no fault of their own

  2. These WORKSHY loser parents should be put in the stocks for not feeding their kids!!!!!!!!!!!!! The government should not have to bail out the losers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Period —- Steeple Times is wrong on this one!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make the losers work on the roads!!!!!!!!!!! Make them clean the pavement stones!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next you’ll be supporting immigrants again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. J Barnuall and Rod – I hope you two end up on the scrap heap and are forced to struggle to feed yourselves. The spectacle would be COMEDY GOLD!

  4. Just like most MP’s they all have their noses in the trough, it’s one rule for them, and another for us.
    In answer to J Barnuall, who obviously has plenty, I would just say, There but for the grace of god.
    As for Rodder’s, no comment, as I know he’s just taking the piss..
