Theresa "MAY" not build a better Britain.

I reckon the Cameron "we're all in this together" thread doesn't cut the mustard anymore and that TM deserves her very own thread where we can pick the bitch apart on her hollow promise.

A record number of food parcels will be handed out across the UK this financial year, a major food bank charity said.


The Salisbury-based Trussell Trust said it had issued 500,000 in the past six months and was on course for the highest number in its 12-year history.


It blamed benefit changes, which it said "accounted for 44% of referrals".


The Department of Work and Pensions said food bank use was complex and it was "misleading to link to any one issue".


David McAuley, from the Trussell Trust, said: "To stop UK hunger we must make sure the welfare system works fairly and compassionately, stopping people getting to a point where they have no money to eat.


He said the charity had "anecdotal evidence" suggesting food bank managers and volunteers spent a significant amount of time on hold to Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) phone lines on behalf of people in crisis.


'Telephone hotline'

Mr McAuley said: "It feels like we could be seeing a new era at the DWP with a consultation on work capability assessments and willingness to engage in dialogue with charities working on the front line.


"A telephone hotline could build on this and go a long way to improving food banks' ability to help get people out of a crisis faster."


A DWP spokesman said the "the vast majority of benefits are processed on time".


He said: "But for those who need extra support, we provide a strong safety net through the welfare system, including hardship payments, benefit advances and budgeting loans."


But Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Debbie Abrahams said Labour would scrap the "punitive sanctions regime" of the current government and said it was "clear that delays in benefit payments and changes to eligibility are a major cause behind this increase".


"Even more staggering in the run up to Christmas is almost 200,000 children will be relying on a food parcel to get a decent meal," she said.


Between April and September 2016, Trussell Trust food banks across the UK issued 519,342 three-day emergency food packs, compared with 506,369 during the same period last year.

Theresa Mayhem looks like a rabbit in the headlights half the time, I think there maybe a few regrets creeping in, There is no way she will deliver on her promises and several years of bitter conflict both inside and outside her party are in store. On top of that are growing pressures from all parties with interests at stake in Brexit, Then finally there are the Europeans who smell blood if she ever manages to get past the starting gate and trigger C50. I doubt these jaunts to India and other so called potential trading partners are giving her any comfort at all. They all have their agendas and  existing trading arrangements. I bet she wishes she could wind the clock back and hide under the radar in the Home Office again

She will go down as a miserable failure and hopefully drag down that scheming cunt Johnson too,

I have this feeling she is nothing more than a Sacrificial Lamb until the Tories unleash someone like IDS. 

 

IDS is a village idiot and has had his 15 minutes of fame

Like Dennis Thatcher's head got trapped inside his wife's and he's trying to push his way out through her skin.

    • The form of Joel Matip has undoubtedly been one of the most pleasing developments in the second half of this campaign. However, there would have been times when the Cameroon international would have wondered if things were ever going to go his way at Liverpool.

      Just when it seemed he was ready to stamp his authority on the centre back position, an innocuous injury appeared completely out of the blue such as the collarbone injury sustained in the last minute of the final Champions League group game against Napoli in early December.

      Seemingly blessed with the physical attributes to be a impressive central defender, his inability to impose himself in a game sense due to his causal demeanour has consistently frustrated many fans over his time at the club.

      However a real opportunity emerged in the early part of 2019. 

      After making a quicker than expected recovery from his injury, a spot in the back four opened up with Dejan Lovren who had been deputising for both Joe Gomez and Matip, suffering an hamstring strain in the FA Cup tie against Wolves.

      They say good fortune comes in many ways and to the great credit of the 27 year-old, he has taken it with both hands.

      Developing a strong bond with your fellow central defender is crucial, and something that Matip lacked in previous stints in the side.

      However, after linking up with Virgil Van Dijk, he has progressed to the next level.

      There is something a bit special seeing a central defender go on mazy runs up the pitch.

      Matip has always had this aspect to his game, but as his confidence has grown, his roaming trips have become all the more frequent to the great delight of the Anfield crowd.

      The defender explained to the Official site about his love to have the ball at his feet.

      "I'm a defender but I really enjoy to have the ball in all situations.

      "We have the ball quite often and I try to help my teammates and try to do something for the team to create something. 

      "I really enjoy it. I think it's not bad if you enjoy the way you play.

      "When I was young I tried to play from the back. I think that's just the way I am, the way I play. Sometimes it helps and I hope that it will help our team.

      "Maybe I should not do it every few minutes but I think he [Klopp] trusts me.   "If I step in and the risk is not too high and I can help the team then it's helpful."  

      Despite having an adventurous nature, Matip knows putting the ball in the back of the net himself is not one of his strengths and he sticks to the basics in this regard.

      "I know what I can do and shooting is not my favourite part, so I think it's better to leave the shooting for some others.

      "But maybe one day I will be in a better position and also can score with a shot."

      Currently enjoying his most consistent run of games as a Liverpool player, Matip knows every team Liverpool comes up against at this time of the season is a considerable test which continues against Huddersfield on Friday night.

      "No game in the Premier League is easy, it doesn't matter who you play against.

      "They will fight, they will try to earn their respect and they will not come here to give us some points. It will be a tough challenge."

    • If we lift the European Cup - what would have been the jewel in their potential quadruple crown - I'd imagine that would absolutely boil their, and especially Guardiola's piss.   Even should they pip us to the League.   We have to stay positive, twat Huddersfield.   And I have to keep reminding myself we can win the European Cup.   (And maybe the League)        
    • I'm hoping Saruman the White conjures up the 1974 Leighton James to score a last-gasp Burnley winner/equaliser.
    • Amateur side managed by amateur manager. Or damm near close to it. Where would Molde rank in the English league? Are they Championship level, even? Almost certainly not.   Intensely annoying that we played them when we did. City are a top side but by the same token they have been superbly fortunate playing the other decent sides when they have.. Arsenal right at the beginning of Emerys reign, Spurs in joke conditions at Wembley followed by the return fixture right after the CL, United tonight now that the Solskjaer circus is showing its true colours. Shame we couldn't hold them at the Ethiad.  
    • I think it's over.   I hope I'm wrong. We are a wonderful side.   I hope we win our next two League games and make it go down to the last day. We deserve that at the very least.   And if we end up losing it with 97 points, us old cunts can console ourselves emptily with the thought that in the old 2-points-for-a-win days, we'd have won it by a point. I can curse a couple of draws as losses. And yet we might end up "invincibles", but for one game. Oil etc.   The shitness of modern football.   Perhaps we'll win the European Cup.  This team deserves something great.   Perhaps there's a miracle somewhere in the League yet.  A hand of God.  Something.  But it would be a miracle I think.   I'll keep hoping.
