Food banks now a lifeline for half a million people in Britain
are not the "Big Society" in action. They are a product of decades of
government negligence and are an indictment of the rest of society for
allowing it to happen. It is to our collective eternal shame that
Cameron, Clegg, Osborne, Milliband, Brown and the rest of the self
serving hypocrites of the House of commons remain with their noses in
the trough of expenses, food allowances, subsidised alcohol and other
perks while 500,000 people in this country queue for foodbank charity.
