Food Banks Debate Shambles.

with 60 comments

Food Banks annoy me, and lots of people, intensely.

So it was with interest that we followed the debate in the House of Commons yesterday.

We cannot do better than cite the Daily Mirror,

It was the day the Nasty Party showed its true-blue colours – by sneering at the plight of hungry families forced to rely on food banks.

Tory MPs laughed and jeered as they were told how some hard-up shoppers were so desperate they fought to snap up discounted items in supermarkets.

Astonishingly, all the Government ministers from the responsible departments – including Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith – sneaked out after just an hour of the crucial Commons debate.

By then a cowardly IDS had already ducked questions, putting forward his deputy instead.

In one of the most shameful episodes ever witnessed in Parliament, Tory backbenchers sniggered and hooted as Labour MP Fiona MacTaggart told of shocking scenes at her local Tesco in Slough, Berks, as people battled over cut-price fruit and veg.

She said the store had now been forced to draft in extra security.

Almost drowned out by mocking Tory MPs, she asked: “Isn’t that a shocking sign in the 21st century?”

Senior Labour politicians later described the Tories’ callous reaction as “shameful” and “a total disgrace”.

Labour MP Jamie Reed said: “I regret to say the laughter from the Government benches says more about this issue than words ever could.”

His colleague Barry Gardiner said it was “extraordinary” to see Mr Duncan Smith smirking as it was pointed out that half a million people are now using food banks.

And The Trussell Trust, the nation’s largest provider of food banks, said it was “disappointed” by the attitude of those who jeered.

Labour had called the debate after nearly 150,000 people signed a petition backed by the Mirror, the Unite union and The Trussell Trust calling for an inquiry into the growing dependence on food aid.

But Mr Duncan Smith refused to answer for the Government, leaving it to his deputy, Esther McVey.

And in an ill-judged speech, she sparked fury by claiming it was a good thing that more people were turning to food banks.

Incredibly she insisted: “It is positive that people are reaching out to support other people.”

She went on: “In the UK it is right that more people are going to food banks because as times are tough, we are all having to pay back this
£1.5trillion debt personally. We are all trying to live within our means, change gear and make sure that we pay back all our debt.” Labour veteran Sir Gerald Kaufman described her speech as the “nastiest” he had heard in his 43 years as an MP.

Labour’s Lilian Greenwood added: “They are the nasty party through and through. She doesn’t get it and won’t take responsibility.”

Shortly after Ms Mcvey’s performance, Mr Duncan Smith scurried from the chamber, followed by an number of other senior Tories.

Speaker John Bercow said he had no power to stop them, but said the view that it was a disgrace there was no minister there “may be widely shared”. Shadow Environment Secretary Maria Eagle said the increasing need for food banks was a damning indictment of Government policy.

She added: “Since April this year more than 500,000 people have relied on assistance from the 400 food banks run by The Trussell Trust charity, double the number of food banks compared to this time last year.” She added: “It’s a scandal which is getting worse and the Government now has the humiliation of the Red Cross helping to collect and distribute food aid in Britain for the first time since the Second World War.”

Former Labour Cabinet minister Paul Murphy told the Commons he had never seen such poverty in his 40 years as a Welsh politician, apart from during the 1984 Miners’ Strike.

Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Rachel Reeves told the House: “It’s a tale of two nations – tax cuts for the rich, food banks for the poor.”

This is also relevant,

In an ill-judged speech, Ms McVey sparked fury after claiming it was “positive” more people were turning to food banks.

She refused to answer Labour’s claims that the Government’s austerity measures, “incompetent” welfare reforms, rising food prices and the bedroom tax had driven more people into poverty.

She said: “It is positive that people are reaching out to support other people – from church groups to community groups, to local supermarkets and other groups.

“In the UK it is right that more people are going to food banks because as times are tough, we are all having to pay back this £1.5 trillion debt personally which spiralled under Labour, we are all trying to live within our means, change the gear and make sure that we pay back all our debt which happened under them.”

  1. Labour are only doing as they are as they seek votes, PLEASE, make NO mistake if they were in power things would be just as they are at this moment in time, it would be them that was still employing Lord Freud!!!. They are not so much politicians,they are also showman/actors playing out a well defined career role. Remember what they did when they were in power, NEVER forget that!!!.

    • John Cruddas MP for Dagenham,

      “Jon works closely with all the foodbanks in the constituency including, Store City – operating out of Bethel Church and the Rainham food bank which is one of the Trussel Trusts 200 nationwide foodbanks. Jon Cruddas MP has previously spoken about the necessity of foodbanks and continues to help raise awareness of the growing problem of food poverty. Over 200,000 people are expected to turn to a foodbank for help this year. The projects operating in Dagenham and Rainham offer a proactive hand up to people who cannot even afford the basic essentials to survive. Rising living costs, job insecurity and benefit changes are making life tough for families.”

  2. If Mc vile is so positive about the use of food banks then why have rejected this
    ” British officials in Brussels said that the UK did not want to use money from a new £2.5bn fund – European Aid to the Most Deprived – to be used to help with the costs of running food banks.”

  3. When a government would rather give funds that should go to services such as the food banks to private sector firms for what we now know was going to fund the back to work scheme. I think it sends a clear sign that the tories will enforce their belief in a NON SOMETHING FOR NOTHING SOCIETY as giving it to a food bank yields no return where as giving it to a private sector ensures they, not you get something for something.

    At least this revelation points out that the tories as yet cant cover the bill regarding this scheme which was much the case with the work programme what with every provider dipping in the EU fund along with others to mask the fact that a single payment of £400 per claimant was never going to be enough to pay staff, rent, etc.

    • Doesn’t matter how many people are turning to food banks. The thing that needs to be addressed is the fact that it is happening in this day and age. Not just unemployed/disabled people are being hit but working people are relying on food banks and benefits to top up their wages. Says something about the way this country is slowly being run into the ground while the elite sit back and watch.

      • We know why it is happening Chris. Its because IDS wants to scrap all welfare support!

        Ed

        December 19, 2013 at 11:55 am

      • Well if you mean scrapping the notion of helping someone out less fortunate than you then yes, but he has no intentions of letting the human stock go to waste as welfare or not, their will always be under employment.

        We have all heard the phrase “the quickest way to a mans heart is through his stomach”, well as any post war Jewish POWs will attest that includes your attention to.

        The total use of food banks is logged by each foodbank so any wishing to know the true figure, merely has to ask them. As for who to believe, well the trussell trust of course as they have currently 400 food banks.

        Less food, more subservient, more malleable.

  6. Off-topic. This from think tank The Resolution Foundation:

    “A £600m reduction in support will leave millions of working families worse off by 2017 by reducing the amount they can earn before their Universal Credit payment is withdrawn…”.

    Any credibility Iain Duncan Smith’s Universal Credit ever had has just flown out of the fucking window.

    Yes, it’s unacceptable for sneering Tories to so indifferent to the plight of the starving. If fighting in supermarkets is happening now, just wait until the food riots start in earnest on the desperate streets of broken and burning Britain. Will the Tories still be sniggering then?

  10. Im constantly told by claimants that DWP cant enter their UJ account all because they didn’t tick a box.

    This is completely UNTRUE.

    You see while your advisor cant a DATA CONTROLLER CAN AS SO CAN A PERSON NOMINATED BY THE SAID DATA CONTROLLER.

    The moment YOU OPEN A UJ ACCOUNT YOU HAVE JUST CONSENTED THAT YOU ALLOW THE DATA CONTROLLER TO PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL AND OR SENSITIVE DATA.

    UJs DATA CONTROLLER IS DWP and this is clearly stated

    IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A UJ ACCOUNT AND HAVE SUBMITTED SUCH DATA YOU CAN STILL SET CONTROLS BUT IT IS HIGHLY LIKELY THAT DWP WILL CLAIM EXEMPTION. IF THIS IS THE CASE SIMPLY INFORM DWP IN WRITING THAT YOU WISH TO CLOSE YOUR ORIGINAL ACCOUNT AS YOU WILL BE OPENING A NEW ONE BUT WILL AS IS BOTH REASONBABLE AND LEGAL DO SO WITHOLDING WHERE YOU SEE FIT ANY PERSONAL AND OR SENSITIVE DATA THAT YOU DESIRE.

  11. Also please remember that during a job interview that besides an overview primarily it is a NEGOTIATION OF CONTRACT so heres one instance of negotiation DWP fear you will have and have even suggested under threat of sanction you cant but as advertised is after all a normal part of business.

    PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IF THE EMPLOYER STATES NO TO AN INCREASE BUT NON THE LESS OFFERS YOU THE POSITION THAT UNDER DWP RULES, IT WILL BE VIEWED AS A FAILURE TO EXCEPT THE OPPORTUNITY OF GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT AND AS SUCH A SANCTIONABLE OFFENCE.

  14. Just how ruthless the draconian sanctions’ regime has become was brought home to me this week when a friend, clinically depressed after the death of his mother through cancer, has had his JSA and Housing Benefit stopped for a month over a minor infringement of jobcentre rules, meaning he will now endure a bleak, cold and hungry Xmas and faces being pushed further into debt from which he’ll probably never be able to extract himself from.

    He certainly won’t be sniggering and guffawing like the Tory and LibDem scum in the commons’ debate.

    As for the jobcentre staff who authorized this sanction, I hope the inhuman bastards choke on their Christmas turkey!
