The tragic need for food­banks

Uxbridge Gazette - - Your Say -

I feel com­pelled to write this email too you in con­nec­tion with the ar­ti­cle on food­banks.

This coun­try is one of the rich­est coun­tries in the world. And yet, the peo­ple of this coun­try have to de­pend on food­banks to sur­vive. And made to live in the Vic­to­rian age.

All politi­cians are the same, make prom­ises of what they are go­ing too do. But, food­banks were never heard of un­til the Con­ser­va­tives took power – they have tre­bled in num­ber. Ev­ery­one, has suf­fered due to the hor­ren­dous cuts to this coun­try.

And yet in­stead of both Labour and Lib Dems get con­stantly on the backs of Theresa May over what is hap­pen­ing in this coun­try, she will not back down. And will con­tinue to make this coun­try suf­fer.

No mat­ter what ben­e­fit you are on, or on low pay, lots of peo­ple de­pend on food­banks to live. We have fan­tas­tic vol­un­teers who hand out food. And then its re­stricted to how much you can have.

Christ­mas is just round the cor­ner, and many more peo­ple who go to the food­banks, and peo­ple will suf­fer. And yet very soon all MPs will go on a very long break and tuck into lovely food.

MPs of all par­ties should be ashamed of them­selves to al­low this to hap­pen. They should to­tally scrap Uni­ver­sal Credit, Brexit should be axed, as there will be more un­em­ployed due to com­pa­nies mov­ing out of the coun­try over Brexit.

I have cer­tainly changed my mind af­ter the false prom­ises given to us – yes, by MPs

Lets get this coun­try back on its feet, get rid of Theresa May, and Jeremy Cor­byn – and I am a Labour voter. He just doesn’t have the bot­tle to take on Theresa May. Let’s have a leader, who will be strong enough to sort out this coun­try.

Let’s have a gen­eral elec­tion in the new year, and make this coun­try happy again.

As at the mo­ment we are in a right mess thanks to Theresa May.
