    Do free school meals include the weekends? Why not get rid of all permanent ad-hoc payments like winter fuel and school meals and just ensure there is enough in pensions and benefits

    This has been their plan folks, to impoverish the world while working under cover of a fabricated problem (virus). It's the roll out of perpetual tyranny under the UN's AGENDA 21/30, NEW WORLD ORDER, NEW NORMAL way of life that they've got masquerading as care, wake up!

    Another politician just trying to save her own neck. After this parliament the Tory party will be relegated to the footnote of history.

    This is absolutely ridiculous. I think regardless of your background as a Brit I am sick of seeing this government undermine and ridicule the working class. The whole race card is played to distract us from the war against the working class. The only thing that is exists in this country is the class system and their coming for us!!
