…When you arrange a photocall at a food bank, or a collection point for a food bank, you don’t stand there grinning like an idiot Chesire cat. You have the grace to look angry and ashamed that in, what purports to be the 6th largest economy on Earth, there are well over a million people who rely on food banks because they can’t afford food for themselves or their kids.
Delighted to support the
#ChristmasFoodCollection today at the @Tesco store in Torry . You can support the UK’s biggest food drive by #donating any canned or long life foods at your local @Tesco store. I was pleased to make my donation #EveryCanHelps
And you hang your head in shame that you are part of what has caused that horror to be a fact of life for so many of our people, including people in work and old folk … while others live in the lap of luxury.
This is what makes me utterly ashamed to be British. It’s what makes me bilious when I see one of your union flags and all it stands for. It is what has, on occasions abroad, made me pretend not to be British.
Good that you got in a wee advertisement for Tesco though. When you lose your seat, maybe they’ll find you a job.
