Cameron finally visits foodbanks

Well the PM finally got around to visiting two foodbanks last week. He didn’t bother to meet any of the public or are being forced to use the service – but that was to be expected really (he would probably have been lynched).
13 million people in the UK live below the poverty line across the UK. Many go hungry after receiving unexpected bills that they cannot pay or losing their jobs. 128,687 people used foodbanks last year and the number is expected to rise to 230,000 this year, due to rising household bills for food and fuel and high unemployment.
Whilst we are ALL going through tough times at the moment it is worth remembering that the use of foodbanks actually went up 10 times in the last labour government so it is not all his fault – just most of it!
