Just watching Tory MPs on Twitter taking issue with Marcus Rashford. Imagine watching a man doing everything he can to feed hungry children and your first thought being "whoa hold on there".
The fact the BBC 10 O'Clock News reports Angela Rayner saying a rude word about a Tory MP, but not Conservative MPs voting to drive hundreds of thousands of children into hunger, says everything you need to know about our broken media.
Some of the quotes from Tory MPs in the free school meals debate are genuinely jaw-dropping - feeding hungry kids is tantamount to ‘nationalising’ them says this one?!
has already committed to funding for free school meals during next Xmas, Feb & Easter hols) https://t.co/fDAF3AokJv
If you don't want to be called Tory Scum maybe during the worst pandemic and recession of our lifetimes you shouldn't vote against making sure vulnerable kids don't fucking starve at christmas
It is good to see someone in the Tory party with moral courage.
I'm disgusted by what's just happened in Parliament.
Tory MPs just voted down extending free school meals over the Christmas holiday.
They know this will mean 1 million kids going hungry. They just don't care.
A sickening display of Tory contempt for people in our communities.
Tory MPs just voted to plunge a million children into hunger.
Britain has the wealth, resources and ability to ensure every single child has enough food. Imposing hunger on them is an act of violence.
Shocking that Tory MPs just voted against continuing free school meals when we know this will be a really tough winter for families.
There are children going hungry in 21st Century Britain and Tory MPs tonight claimed helping them would encourage ‘dependency’. I am just at a total loss to understand how anyone with a shred of humanity could vote against children having food to eat https://t.co/6GhcEP2cQb
Tory MPs repeatedly saying that opposing child hunger is political point scoring.
Well here’s what I think.
We have a nasty, vindictive Tory government which is choosing to let over a million children go hungry.
Is that political enough for you?
Never ever forget the Tory Party voted to starve millions of kids in the midst of the world health crisis in a century, weeks after their leader complained he can't live on 150,000 quid. #ToryScum
Lol the way they left Tory’s live so fast. He started talking about Nigeria and they left in thousands https://t.co/mn1EgKKX9y
There are meetings going on right now in the Tory party over what to do about the Rashford situation. He's becoming more than just a nuisance to them. They will ramp up their efforts to discredit the messenger to distract from the message. They will be desperate to damage him.
Tory MP Brendan Clarke-Smith thinks feeding poor children during school holidays is “nationalising” them
No it’s providing a safety net during a once a century pandemic
If that’s nationalisation, then it’s the morally right thing to do
Did anyone seriously vote Tory in the hope of letting 1 million children go hungry over the holidays?
I just don't believe any Tory voter supports this.
If so, more people need to realise that voting Tory means actively supporting and increasing poverty, hunger and inequality.
Tory MPs have been known to claim £40 for breakfast on their expenses which is more than some parents have to feed their children in a week, but you're offended by the use of the word "scum"?
Criticise Angela Rayner all you like, but it if she did call a Tory “scum”, she was correct.
The fact we are even having to debate feeding hungry children while blowing £12 billion on that test and trace shambles, justifies the use of the word.
Tonight Labour voted to extend free school meals over the holidays until Easter 2021.
322 Tory MPs voted against this meaning thousand of children will go hungry.
I don’t know how the 322 Tory MPs are sleeping tonight. Because I can’t, knowing that 1.4 million children like Cameron will go hungry this Christmas.
This Tory MP claims providing free school meals in the school holidays "increases dependency".
In order to promote some bizarre ideological views about the state, he seems happy for kids to go to bed hungry each night.
They're kids. They need to eat. End of.
It’s astonishing some Tory MPs are self professed Christians isn’t it? #nofoodforyouTinyTim
How come all the gammons who are desperate to save our children from Asian grooming gangs aren't so keen to save our children from Tory starvation? x
Guess which allegedly abusive Tory MP voted by proxy again?
In favour of leaving children hungry, obviously.
#ToryScum So MP's received a £3000 wage rise recently, they were offered it & they accepted. Just a week later the Tory Party vote DOWN a motion to fund Free School Meals through the holidays for the poorest children among us!.
Hard to believe that Tory MP @drcarolinej
, who is a part-time Consultant paediatrician, voted against #FreeSchoolMeals during a pandemic. It’s just so wrong headed and shameful
For years I've heard tory MPs refer to the sick/disabled/poor/vulnerable/migrants with disgusting language, today Angela Rayner is rebuked for calling a tory MP 'scum'
I think that is a fair comment from Angela.
Can you imagine the leftist outrage if a Tory MP called a Labour MP scum in Parliament?
After all, the leftwaffle went into meltdown over girly swat, big girls blouse etc.
It seems the unhinged communists want a free pass to be rancid with no blow back.
