‘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.
