Not paying Cummings could have saved some money, not protecting the bully Patel could have saved the  Government some money, not delaying covid response could have save the Government some money (and the country some lives) - what is wrong in that? LOADS. I can't believe that people are being so selfish.

How could we forget?

Stephen Unwin on Twitter: "The House of Commons' subsidised dining room menu.…  "

Not including generous  allowances to cover the costs of running an office and employing staff, and maintaining a constituency residence or a residence in London, MPs salary is C£82,000.  Jacob Rees Mogg's basic salary is about £120,000.

The sauce of Mogg complaining about UNICEF donating a relatively paltry sum of money towards food banks feeding hungry children is just astonishing. 

If this was 1789 France, Mogg would be first to be led to the guillotine.

I stand by my previous comment that:

 

Has the world gone mad that anybody thinks there is a rational explanation of the UK requiring UNICEF aid?

 

It would appear so from some of the comments in here. On the plus side, if mental gymnastics ever became an olympic sport we'd be a shoe in looking at the apologists on here.

UNICEF has been funding different schemes in the UK since at least 1994.

did a quick google and while i cant find a quick and easy way to view these "schemes" theyve been doing since 1994 i did find the following about them in the UK

https://www.unicef.org/infobycountry/uk_5862.html

 

and all the news links state its the FIRST TIME in the organisations More than 70 year HISTORY, theyve stepped in to feed the poorest / hungriest children in the UK

https://news.un.org/en/story/2020/12/1080282

 

so whatever excuses the working class "tories" above spin, charity is now helping the poorest in THIS once great country while their masters that they voted for throw billions hand over fist over to their rich mates to make them even richer

All will be fine.  Boris will ensure the interests of the "Briddish peepoo" and sovereignty will prevail.  Yeah...just like his "oven-ready" Brexit deal.

 

Clown.  He'll be super-rich when he charges thousands to speak at "dinners"...although his autobiography will be on the reduced pile in "The Works" within weeks of publication.

You should tell us more about that. 
 

The U.K. media is claiming that this is the first time ever that UNICEF has funded the feeding of hungry children in the U.K. 

 

Perhaps you could tell us about the other work that they’ve done here. Some decent sources would be nice too.

If's a competition to see who can be the biggest Tory "B" ever.

Thatcher took milk from kids.

Duncan Smith took benefits from disabled people

Boris has taken Christmas from millions.

Much of London is awash with money, it shouldn't require UNICEF to feed children even in a year as exceptional as this one, this is a failure to redistribute wealth by anywhere near enough.

i'm not sure that much of London is awash with money, a few small parts are very awash with money, i'd guess the majority is probably not much different from up here but also on the faced with the additional load which the higher cost of living imposes on them,  

 

though you are quite correct, unicef shouldn't have to fund feeding children in the uk, anyone who has been in governement over the last 20-30 years should feel ashamed that they are having too. Given his professed faith, someone should be pointing Mr Rees-Mogg to Deuteronomy 15:11
