Tesco discounts food 90%

Tory Ministers roaring with laughter at poor people having to fight for food and use food banks to survive.

Iain Duncan Smith leaves Commons debate on food banks early.

Tory ministers have been condemned for not taking the plight Britain’s poor seriously after a rowdy Commons debate on food banks during which the Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith refused to answer questions and left early.

As Fiona MacTaggart, the Labour MP for Slough, described how people battled over end of day bargains in her local Tesco, she was almost drowned out by laughter and jeering from the government benches.

TAP – I know someone who drives eighty miles a week to fill up his car with these end of day bargains.  They are not poor but feeding six children!  The prices are amazing, and most of the food is still fine – just past its sell by date.  90% is not uncommon.
Ms MacTaggart could barely be heard over the braying as she described how the supermarket had been forced to draft in extra security and asked “Isn’t that a shocking sign in the 21st century?”

Labour MP for Copeland in Cumbria, Jamie Reed told The Mirror: “I regret to say the laughter from the government benches says more about this issue than words ever could.”

Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, and the remaining government ministers from his department left the debate after an hour, well before its conclusion.

Barry Gardiner, Labour MP for Brent said it was “extraordinary” to see Mr Duncan Smith smirking as it was pointed out that half a million people are now using food banks – and the minister refused to answer any questions directly, instead leaving them to be fielded by his deputy, Esther McVey.

    The Uk Tory government laughed at peoples fears for their health because of chemtrails, they laugh at the poor having to use food banks, it just goes to show what their true intentions are. As the saying goes..’Actions speak louder than words’ and their laughter speaks volumes about them. They really are the scum of the Earth.

    Come senators, congressmen
    Please heed the call
    Don’t stand in the doorway
    Don’t block up the hall
    For he that gets hurt
    Will be he who has stalled
    There’s a battle outside
    And it is ragin’
    It’ll soon shake your windows
    And rattle your walls
    For the times they are a-changin’.

    The line it is drawn
    The curse it is cast
    The slow one now
    Will later be fast
    As the present now
    Will later be past
    The order is
    Rapidly fadin’
    And the first one now
    Will later be last
    For the times they are a-changin’.
    Bob Dylan.

    If Tesco are reducing their produce by up to 90% then it just goes to show that they’re making at least 90% profit on everything they sell.

    Blatant profiteering, but then it’s owned by guess who?

    I no longer shop in Tesco. In fact I don’t shop in any supermarkets.
