Feed the Children – in modern Britain NOW

“Children are going hungry; yet the Tories are forcing through cuts to remove free school meals for children where the family income is more than £160 a week.

“My children have grey skin, poor teeth, poor hair;
they are thinner.”

“Children are filling their pockets with food. In some establishments that would be called stealing.

 

We call it SURVIVAL.”

Global Britain, great and free

The nations, not so blest as thee,
Must in their turn, to tyrants fall,
While thou shalt flourish great and free,
The dread and envy of them all.
“Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
“Britons never will be slaves.”
From ‘Rule Britannia!’ by James Thomson, 1740.

“Dread and envy” of other nations? Under Brexit? The first, maybe; the second, not so much….

The latest evidence that Brexit, like Trump, is not supporting the interests of ordinary people is clear from the number of prominent Brexiteers in the list of off-shore investors found in the “Paradise Papers. (Click here to read THE GUARDIAN article).

It is a capitalist movement, preying on fears, prejudices and ideals, just as Thatcherism did in the Eighties, when greed and selfishness were blessed under cover of individualism and private enterprise.

Brexit is not a popular, patriotic revolution, it’s an ugly aberration that anyone who loves Britain and cares about human destiny can still stop, as Lord Kerr clarified yesterday
