Anthony Higginbotham

Post by Pimlico_Claret » Wed Oct 21, 2020 9:29 pm

One of the 322 MP's who voted to help the poorest children in society become even hungrier this winter. Hope all the local Burnley Tory voters are proud of him.

As somebody posted on FB today, MPs get over £8m of subsidised meals per year. Tory ****.

I do think in the current climate this really needs sorting, children will starve, we are not a third world country. Terrible to imagine young children living local to me starving whilst I throw food away every week.

I doubt he actually voted for that.

I think he's saying it should be a short term last resort option, however it's quite clear they are parents out there that expect the state to raise their children for them.

No child should ever go hungry, but also their parents should so everything in their power to make sure that doesnt happen, sadly there are way too many that put themselves before their children.

When does the chain ever break if the plan is to continue to throw money at the parents hoping some trickles down?

Its heartbreaking

To right, churning children out for some is down to a fine art every 9mths as sure as eggs, the practicalities of how to raise a large family responsibly isn’t even a consideration, I’d personally cap all benefits exceeding 2 children to discourage abusing the system. Not the children’s fault I feel sorry for them.

We live in the 21st Century, seriously, nobody in the UK should be going hungry... food and shelter should be a given. No matter what your circumstances, poor, homeless, smackhead or whatever.... especially children, even if you think the parents are to blame, it’s still not the children’s fault.

I don’t know how anyone can justify choosing to see people starve.

I dont think anyone would choose to see a person starve, it's a case of when and where does it stop.

I see the argument is to give childrens parents the money equivalent of what the usual school meal costs, which is a great idea, but what if the parent STILL decides not to buy or fees that child a meal?
Then surely the system wouldn't be working.

In my opinion, I'd open up certain schools / community centres through the holidays to guarantee ANY hungry family can get a meal.

Throwing hundreds of pounds at a person hoping something trickles down to their child(ren) clearly doesnt work, we can see evidence of that already with current benefit system, as houses are still without heating, hot water, food not in cupboards, and children are still walking around with inappropriate or substandard clothing etc.

But politicians or members of the public scoring points by saying there's people out their choosing to watch children starve depending on who you voted for is pretty low.

It tkes a special kind of person to try and points score with serious matters like this.

Talking about blaming the parents for things, have you seen how ugly that Higginbotham fella is. Jesus Christ, he was right at the back when the gene pool was being distributed. Proper munter.

His values match his appearance. Vile.

The proposal was for food vouchers so they’d be hard pressed to spend it on anything else.

But at present there about 3 million people (freelancers and many self-employed), who haven't been able to earn a penny since March and have not been entitled to a penny in support from the govt.
They are getting by on minimal level benefits.
Not their fault that they are prevented from working by a virus.

I wouldn’t wish to prevent anyone, rich or poor, from having a child, who wishes to do so, and no children should be going hungry.

Where I do struggle is with those that choose to have multiple children with no means to care for them, either financially or responsibly as a parent and caring role model.

I can see the argument for not funding above one child but that just won’t help the children that are second, third or fourth, why should they suffer for the parents that they’re saddled with?

It’s a cycle that won’t be resolved. There’s no education programme that will change what has been engrained across generations.

He shares the blame with the other Tory MPs who voted against just as those who voted for him share the blame for putting him a position to do it.

No but its in his and his fellow MPs grasp to make a difference now and help these children in the current crisis.

The criticism isnt that they are responsible for the cause but are rejecting the opportunity to help and when you look at all the money they have wasted over the last 6 months it just adds to the discgrace

Youre falling for the same media tropes that they use for benefits claimants and migrants where they get you to focus on the absolute exceptions of system abuse whist ignoring the majority of good people in genuine need who require the help we are easily in a position to provide

That’s basically how I see things, you bring children into this world you need to provide for them or wear contraception, people can blame the virus but you need to plan & think ahead & prepare yourself for all eventualities being a responsible parent, it’s only the same as being off work on long term sick you cover yourself with insurance or dip into your savings or find alternative employment unaffected by the virus.

Food vouchers or vouchers for supermarkets?

Regardless of what vouchers are given, they can still be sold, and yes I know it's hard to believe but sadly it does happen.
You’re right, we should let all the children in poor families suffer because some might abuse the help given. I notice you’re asking people to sign a petition to help the self employed. Presumably you’re 100% confident no one will abuse that?

I really dont like the idea of attacking Higginbothan for things like his appearance. It is his reprehensible actions we should be focusing on as this vote and what the Tory govt are saying through it is very serious

I don’t know how anyone can justify choosing to see people starve.
Nobody without some kind of eating disorder is going to starve in the UK.

This isn't a black and white case as many here have tried to portray it. It's a case of drawing a line. The line has to go somewhere.

The line has been drawn.

I agree 100% but don’t give me this rubbish that a local MP is to blame for kids going short.
Get the f’in stew pot on , costs very little
I'd pay good money to watch you starve, but thankfully I'm bright enough to realise you are just a thick keyboard warrior. Nice try, but failed miserably.
