Demand for food banks has nothing to do with benefits squeeze, says Work minister Lord Freud

Demand for food banks has nothing to do with benefits squeeze, says Work minister Lord Freud | The United Kingdom's demise | Scoop.it
A wealthy Conservative minister provoked anger last night after questioning the connection between the soaring use of food banks and the Government’s squeeze on benefits.
Thomas Doherty's insight:

This insensitive merchant banker is completely out of touch with reality and should be removed from his position immediately. Where do these morons crawl from, it is an insult to everybody claiming or rather trying to claim their rightful benefits. T he very sight of him makes my flesh creep, Hitler was a sofftie compared to this creep and his deeply flawed associates in the government. The time has come to show this genocidic bastard just what the people can do when they are stripped of their dignity, and the welfare system we have all worked so hard for is systematically destroyed and all our safety nets in case of hardship ripped apart, so when we need them we have nothing and we are left without even the means to buy a loaf of bread. People in this country are going hungry and are sat in homes without gas or electricity, which means no heating or cooking facilities, what sort of life are we showing our children, the next adults and rulers of this once great land. We deserve better than this and we will bloody well get it, this bastard and his millionaire mates will pay dearly for the hurt and suffering imposed on our once proud people. We will become organised properly and united by the hatred of this coalition elitist government, rise up and remove them from power either by the ballot box or preferably by force, and throw every last one of them in jail for acts agains humanity, and for causing massive loss of life by the actions administered by this government.
