Islington’s budget meeting (where Labour put up our council tax to fund universal free school meals) is now out on YouTube.
It’s shocking to hear Labour calling each other ‘comrade’, a real blast from the past. Don’t they realise their tax rise will hurt far more people -and more vulnerable people – than it will help?
Meanwhile Jamie Oliver has condemned Labour’s free school meals plan. As he says “British law at the moment is: if you are so poor you can’t afford it, the government will pay for your free school meal. That’s more than adequate.” His argument is that it’s better to invest money in better school kitchens or quality ingredients than to subsidise turkey twizzlers for all.
Sadly it seems the comrades aren’t listening.
