He clearly doesn’t understand just how difficult it is to get the necessary letter to go to a food bank. I was speaking to someone at the community larder I go to (not a food bank but a subscription service making use of food unwanted by supermarkets) and she said it took her numerous attempts before getting permission.
Ive used some of the food I’ve picked up from the community larder to help working people struggling to make ends meet and it’s definitely not budgeting problems. It’s lack of money problems caused by this government pulling the rug out from under people when they transition from benefits to work.
People allow Channel 5 style mockumentaries to influence them too much. It’s not hard to find people who really need help and to who this sort of candidate is condescending and ignorant.
