    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    If the BBC want to spend time pushing this endlessly on their news channels I propose we cancel the licence fee and redistribute the money elsewhere.

    FFS. What a bunch of entitled pricks in this forum.

    These are children we are talking about. I don't give a tulip if their parents blow the cash on weed or large TVs, but this is just a stereotype.

    Let's remember that UC had to be increased as Mr & Mrs Jones could not live on what the impoverished have been expected to for years.

    I am more than happy for children to be fed on my tax contributions. It is a much better use of money than Boris' moonshots, cumshots or whatever his latest plan of the week is.

    I am 100% behind free school meals in school. But that kids have a choice of meals from different suppliers. We force them to go in, the least we can do is give them a choice of good food when they are in there.

    Opening schools to feed kids? Not a chance.

    As for MP salary, we should up it to 250k. There is only a handful of MPs that I can honestly say have capable employment skills. Would anyone in the private sector honestly be willing to give Angela Rayner 80k? Might have to stomach it for a decade but eventually people with some capability would come in.

    Labour and others seem to think the answer is increasing benefits to a level which is more akin to the living wage.

    On the surface the tories have the best idea, it just seems in practice it’s not working
