Were you looking forward to summer?
Did you expect lots of lazy days out with the family, sitting picnicking by a lake or hosting a neighbourhood barbecue in the garden?
Did you spend a small fortune stocking up on disposable barbecues and paper plates back in the day?
Don’t despair. Someone’s found a use for them, after all.
Tory MP, Mark Jenkinson represents a constituency with some of the worst poverty in the whole of UK. Many of his constituents are unemployed whilst others, earning only minimum wage to start with, have seen their incomes further reduced through furlough and now worse. Many have lost their jobs altogether. West Cumbrian hardship is as bad as it ever was. For many hard-working people it’s like the 1980s all over again.
So how did Jenky choose to represent the good people of Workington and surrounding towns and villages? He voted not to help feed their kids!
That’s right. He voted not to help feed their kids.
If you’re as disgusted as I am you may approve of the sentiment expressed here by one Marypost resident who put all those extra plates to good use. What an interesting and fun way to get rid of all that unused clutter from the summer that never was.
What will you do with your unwanted disposable paper plates?
Please, Mark… May the kids have something to eat this Christmas?
