"A Briton who hasn't eaten for 3 days is no different to an African who hasn't eaten for 3 days." Simple truths that Conservative MPs and voters are failing (or willfully refusing) to acknowledge. When 'Food banks are expanding faster than Tesco..' any civilised company would take urgent, compassionate steps. Instead, we rely on charities to do the work that government shuld be doing and then we watch as the Conservative idealogues spit in the faces of the poor and needy. Dickens wouldn't have written it because it is too far fetched and too cruel.
