The Tory Minister made the controversial comment replying to a question from Labour MP Zarah Sultana
In this story the tory minister is praising the efforts of foodbanks in helping folk to not starve.
But we pay taxes to live in a society where people are not going to starve. People should not be at the mercy of charity to put some food on the table.
Everybody pays taxes so they have a right to expect help when they go through bad times. Welfare has a dignity that charity has not got. It is time to move on from Victorian era social policy.
