Good old Gordon Brown eh?  And Cardboard Blair, Brains Rayner and Bog-eyed Ed will wave their magic beers and all will be well.

Problem is Labour borrow their way out of trouble. 

Renegadefm, I think the Tories have done a lot of that too.

How the network began

The first food bank in our network was created in a garden shed and garage in Salisbury in 2000. Seeing how many people needed emergency food, we carried out research into the UK-wide need for food banks and discovered that this was a nationwide problem.

In 2004, we founded the Trussell Trust Foodbank Network based on the successful Salisbury Foodbank model. Since then, we’ve partnered with churches and communities across the country to over 440 food banks.


Mass immigration is down to Blair when he destabilised the middle east due to his illegal war.

Iraq.  Afghanistan. Northern Rock.  Brown's Gold.  Knighting Fred Goodwin.  Browns tax bombshell.  Cash for honours.   Bigoted woman.  

No thanks- we remember it all too well.
