Rowenna not a local councillor

Rowenna not a local councillor

Rowenna not a local councillor

First published in Readers' Letters

I AM dismayed to read an article in Southampton News Extra about councillor Rowenna Davis.

I have written to the Daily Echo letters page previously about the fact that she is a Londoner who represents Peckham as a councillor.

Rowenna is not therefore local, having been parachuted in from London and people in Southampton should not be left with the impression that she is in a position to represent our interests.

To now see her being referred to as a councillor here in our fair city is misleading and somewhat disingenuous. I was born here, have lived here all my life and am proud to have represented the people of Harefield for the last six years.

My colleague and good friend Royston Smith is a local chap and was born here too, on Cheriton Avenue no less.

He has represented Harefield residents for 14 years and I would challenge anyone to find a harder working councillor in Southampton.

COUNCILLOR EDWARD DAUNT, Harefield, Southampton.

I think that Southampton's voters showed what they thought of Royston Smith's hard work when they had the opportunity at the last council elections.

Oh dear Councillor Daunt ....... I guess that the pressure is beginning to tell a bit is it.
.
Perhaps the "Good Chap" cllr Smith need the likes of you to fight his corner does he .....
.
But remember ..... Rowenna is not wanting to become a councillor in Southampton but is and candidate in a General Election with the view of becoming an MP ......... this is obviously the bit that confuses you.
.
Still you keep fighting the corner of Cllr Smith ...... he needs all the help he can get ......... only his local party are looking quite shabby at the moment

I'm not a councillor,I'm not a Peckham councillor I'm not a city MP or hoping to be one.
But I have been to three churches where I put forward an idea to help working families from not putting themselves in a financial position where they can't afford food & have to go to food banks.
I've heard arguments where working mothers are upset that a woman who's always on welfare can afford a new PC for her childs school work whilst her family can't afford it.
I this so called heartless Tory put forward an idea for the churches to ask for any PC/laptops no longer wanted by their owners so they could run homework/home study classes so taking the pressure of those parents.
I've also suggested to one church that as it has a huge student group maybe instead of them throwing out PC's with the trash when they finish Uni they give it to the church who then let working families use it until the children have left school & then it can be let out to another family.
I was looking for a solution but hey I'm just a Tory voter!

That's what you expect from a Tory voter.

No. You were making suggestions to other people as to what THEY should be doing, you were doing NOTHING yourself.

If you want to do something practical, volunteer to help out in a Food Bank. That way you may meet up with some of the victims of the actions taken by this Tory-led government that you think is doing such a grand job.

Oh! I offered to help a big issue seller to get IT skills so he could go on the internet & find a permanent job was I telling the vicar who asked me what to do?
Typical socialist you want the government to throw money this country hasn't got at a problem as basic as people of todays priorities & what's now seen as an essential not a luxury.

Let's get it right Loonsman there were people using food banks which numbers were increasing under Labour or don't you want to admit that?

Having seen evidence of your IT skills, or lack of, it must be a case of 'the blind leading the blind.'

How many food banks have you visited?

How many have you helped in and spoken to those who have visited?

Do you know who is entitled to visit a food bank, and who issues them with that entitlement?

There are always people who need assistance, and I am first to ADMIT that there were families that needed it when LABOUR were in power.

Now, perhaps you will admit that those numbers have steadily increased in the more than four years of Tory-led government, as have the number of food banks.

I note that, once again, you have to resort to name calling.

Something to be said for consistency I supposed.

I have passed the first section of a ECDL course do you know what that is?
I don't walk around blinkered I can see where people prioritise & if you a Working class man a Labour party member don't think that if these people looked at what is a luxury & what is essential there would be far less of a need for food banks you're dreaming.
One guy goes to a foods bank to get food for himself as his welfare cheque is spent on buying food for his dogs ? are they not a luxury?
one family need a car to drive to work & ferry kids to school why not buy a bicycle & walk to school?
has anyone checked how many Iphones & consoles they have? All luxuries.
When my dad worked we built up Luxuries when he didn't we sold them as they weren't essential now if you're saying all food bank recipients haven't got any luxuries then I know your talking porkies.

But I have been to three churches where I put forward an idea to help working families from not putting themselves in a financial position where they can't afford food & have to go to food banks.
I've heard arguments where working mothers are upset that a woman who's always on welfare can afford a new PC for her childs school work whilst her family can't afford it.
I this so called heartless Tory put forward an idea for the churches to ask for any PC/laptops no longer wanted by their owners so they could run homework/home study classes so taking the pressure of those parents.
I've also suggested to one church that as it has a huge student group maybe instead of them throwing out PC's with the trash when they finish Uni they give it to the church who then let working families use it until the children have left school & then it can be let out to another family.
I was looking for a solution but hey I'm just a Tory voter!
Telling other people what to do instead of doing something yourself?

That's what you expect from a Tory voter.

No. You were making suggestions to other people as to what THEY should be doing, you were doing NOTHING yourself.

I have a driving licence, but that does not make me a driving instructor.

'Driving' a computer does not make a person a computer instructor.

When did you last visit a Food Bank?

How long did you spend in the Food Bank?

How many of the people using the Food Bank did you question with regard their income, why they needed to use the bank and which agency referred them?

According to previous posts of your, you had no luxuries when you were a kid, so how is it that you are now claiming that you 'built up luxuries' that were sold when times were tough? You change your tune to suit your current story.

You will note that I repeated my question about visits to Food Banks, and I note that you have omitted to answer.

I have criticised South in the past when I have considered that he has been wrong.

I have not criticised his spelling or his grammar, which leaves a lot to be desired, because I understand what he is attempting to communicate.

I criticise you, because you attempt to show that you know a lot about the subject under discussion, but the more you say, the more you show that is not the case.

Not only that, many of the things you say, have a slight variance on things that you have said in the past.

So you had bread and dripping for your evening meal. Lucky you!

I wonder what you would be telling us if, like me and many other older Southampton dwellers, you had your childhood during the war, when there was no NHS, food was on ration and you could not buy clothes or shoes without clothing coupons.

You had you childhood during a post-war Labour government, when the country experienced the biggest house-building programme, the docks were busy, as were other factories in the area.

The fact that you had bread and dripping for your tea, at a time when there was full employment, nothing to do with the Labour government at the time, which also dealt with the resettlement of the service men and women who were returning to civilian life.

Don't come the hard luck story, because there are many families in the area who had it considerably tougher. Check out some old photographs of the city and see how many bomb sites there were, and how many families lost their homes and all their possessions.

AND YOU THINK THAT YOU HAD IT TOUGH!

But I have been to three churches where I put forward an idea to help working families from not putting themselves in a financial position where they can't afford food & have to go to food banks.
I've heard arguments where working mothers are upset that a woman who's always on welfare can afford a new PC for her childs school work whilst her family can't afford it.
I this so called heartless Tory put forward an idea for the churches to ask for any PC/laptops no longer wanted by their owners so they could run homework/home study classes so taking the pressure of those parents.
I've also suggested to one church that as it has a huge student group maybe instead of them throwing out PC's with the trash when they finish Uni they give it to the church who then let working families use it until the children have left school & then it can be let out to another family.
I was looking for a solution but hey I'm just a Tory voter!
Telling other people what to do instead of doing something yourself?

That's what you expect from a Tory voter.

Nice to know that your wife let you out.
What a total moron you are! I was trying to come up with a solution to help working people & you come back with this rubbish?
No. You were making suggestions to other people as to what THEY should be doing, you were doing NOTHING yourself.

If you want to do something practical, volunteer to help out in a Food Bank. That way you may meet up with some of the victims of the actions taken by this Tory-led government that you think is doing such a grand job.
How can a church offering IT services to school children or the unemployed be telling people what to do?
Oh! I offered to help a big issue seller to get IT skills so he could go on the internet & find a permanent job was I telling the vicar who asked me what to do?
Typical socialist you want the government to throw money this country hasn't got at a problem as basic as people of todays priorities & what's now seen as an essential not a luxury.
How many food banks go around & see exactly what these people are spending their money on?
How many offer to see what these peoples out goings are to try to put them in a financial position so they don't have to go to food banks?
Let's get it right Loonsman there were people using food banks which numbers were increasing under Labour or don't you want to admit that?
Having seen evidence of your IT skills, or lack of, it must be a case of 'the blind leading the blind.'

How many food banks have you visited?

How many have you helped in and spoken to those who have visited?

Do you know who is entitled to visit a food bank, and who issues them with that entitlement?

There are always people who need assistance, and I am first to ADMIT that there were families that needed it when LABOUR were in power.

Now, perhaps you will admit that those numbers have steadily increased in the more than four years of Tory-led government, as have the number of food banks.

I note that, once again, you have to resort to name calling.

I don't walk around blinkered I can see where people prioritise & if you a Working class man a Labour party member don't think that if these people looked at what is a luxury & what is essential there would be far less of a need for food banks you're dreaming.

'Driving' a computer does not make a person a computer instructor.

When did you last visit a Food Bank?

How long did you spend in the Food Bank?

How many of the people using the Food Bank did you question with regard their income, why they needed to use the bank and which agency referred them?

According to previous posts of your, you had no luxuries when you were a kid, so how is it that you are now claiming that you 'built up luxuries' that were sold when times were tough? You change your tune to suit your current story.

I have criticised South in the past when I have considered that he has been wrong.

I have not criticised his spelling or his grammar, which leaves a lot to be desired, because I understand what he is attempting to communicate.

I have constantly put how I was brought up on posts & through my up bringing I will help any one who at least tries to help themselves.
If some one was trying to start a company & needed free help I'd help.
If a charity wanted leafletting then it's free.
If I live near a pensioner or disabled person & they needed help with their garden or moving something I'd do it.
But I will not help anyone who thinks it should be done for them.
You don't know a thing about my up bringing & unless I started to name names I can't go into it to much so I've come to the decision not to reply to you as you are too blinkered & I'm getting bored with you.

But I have been to three churches where I put forward an idea to help working families from not putting themselves in a financial position where they can't afford food & have to go to food banks.
I've heard arguments where working mothers are upset that a woman who's always on welfare can afford a new PC for her childs school work whilst her family can't afford it.
I this so called heartless Tory put forward an idea for the churches to ask for any PC/laptops no longer wanted by their owners so they could run homework/home study classes so taking the pressure of those parents.
I've also suggested to one church that as it has a huge student group maybe instead of them throwing out PC's with the trash when they finish Uni they give it to the church who then let working families use it until the children have left school & then it can be let out to another family.
I was looking for a solution but hey I'm just a Tory voter!
Telling other people what to do instead of doing something yourself?

That's what you expect from a Tory voter.

Nice to know that your wife let you out.
What a total moron you are! I was trying to come up with a solution to help working people & you come back with this rubbish?
No. You were making suggestions to other people as to what THEY should be doing, you were doing NOTHING yourself.

If you want to do something practical, volunteer to help out in a Food Bank. That way you may meet up with some of the victims of the actions taken by this Tory-led government that you think is doing such a grand job.
How can a church offering IT services to school children or the unemployed be telling people what to do?
Oh! I offered to help a big issue seller to get IT skills so he could go on the internet & find a permanent job was I telling the vicar who asked me what to do?
Typical socialist you want the government to throw money this country hasn't got at a problem as basic as people of todays priorities & what's now seen as an essential not a luxury.
How many food banks go around & see exactly what these people are spending their money on?
How many offer to see what these peoples out goings are to try to put them in a financial position so they don't have to go to food banks?
Let's get it right Loonsman there were people using food banks which numbers were increasing under Labour or don't you want to admit that?
Having seen evidence of your IT skills, or lack of, it must be a case of 'the blind leading the blind.'

How many food banks have you visited?

How many have you helped in and spoken to those who have visited?

Do you know who is entitled to visit a food bank, and who issues them with that entitlement?

There are always people who need assistance, and I am first to ADMIT that there were families that needed it when LABOUR were in power.

Now, perhaps you will admit that those numbers have steadily increased in the more than four years of Tory-led government, as have the number of food banks.

I note that, once again, you have to resort to name calling.

Something to be said for consistency I supposed.
I have passed the first section of a ECDL course do you know what that is?
I don't walk around blinkered I can see where people prioritise & if you a Working class man a Labour party member don't think that if these people looked at what is a luxury & what is essential there would be far less of a need for food banks you're dreaming.
One guy goes to a foods bank to get food for himself as his welfare cheque is spent on buying food for his dogs ? are they not a luxury?
one family need a car to drive to work & ferry kids to school why not buy a bicycle & walk to school?
has anyone checked how many Iphones & consoles they have? All luxuries.
When my dad worked we built up Luxuries when he didn't we sold them as they weren't essential now if you're saying all food bank recipients haven't got any luxuries then I know your talking porkies.
I have a driving licence, but that does not make me a driving instructor.

'Driving' a computer does not make a person a computer instructor.

When did you last visit a Food Bank?

How long did you spend in the Food Bank?

How many of the people using the Food Bank did you question with regard their income, why they needed to use the bank and which agency referred them?

According to previous posts of your, you had no luxuries when you were a kid, so how is it that you are now claiming that you 'built up luxuries' that were sold when times were tough? You change your tune to suit your current story.

You will note that I repeated my question about visits to Food Banks, and I note that you have omitted to answer.
luxury's ? Records,Tools & such were what we called luxuries.
Bread & dripping was our evening meal now you might think you're a smartarse socialist but no your just a person looking to argue & berate other posters.
Funny though I've never seen you attack Southy ?
I have criticised South in the past when I have considered that he has been wrong.

I have not criticised his spelling or his grammar, which leaves a lot to be desired, because I understand what he is attempting to communicate.

I criticise you, because you attempt to show that you know a lot about the subject under discussion, but the more you say, the more you show that is not the case.

Not only that, many of the things you say, have a slight variance on things that you have said in the past.

So you had bread and dripping for your evening meal. Lucky you!

I wonder what you would be telling us if, like me and many other older Southampton dwellers, you had your childhood during the war, when there was no NHS, food was on ration and you could not buy clothes or shoes without clothing coupons.

You had you childhood during a post-war Labour government, when the country experienced the biggest house-building programme, the docks were busy, as were other factories in the area.

The fact that you had bread and dripping for your tea, at a time when there was full employment, nothing to do with the Labour government at the time, which also dealt with the resettlement of the service men and women who were returning to civilian life.

Don't come the hard luck story, because there are many families in the area who had it considerably tougher. Check out some old photographs of the city and see how many bomb sites there were, and how many families lost their homes and all their possessions.

AND YOU THINK THAT YOU HAD IT TOUGH!
I have constantly put how I was brought up on posts & through my up bringing I will help any one who at least tries to help themselves.
If some one was trying to start a company & needed free help I'd help.
If a charity wanted leafletting then it's free.
If I live near a pensioner or disabled person & they needed help with their garden or moving something I'd do it.
But I will not help anyone who thinks it should be done for them.
You don't know a thing about my up bringing & unless I started to name names I can't go into it to much so I've come to the decision not to reply to you as you are too blinkered & I'm getting bored with you.
You mind you don't dislocate your shoulder.

It could easily happen if you keep patting yourself on the back.

Self praise is not worth much.
What puzzles me is, if you are doing all this good work for your elderly neighbours and various charities, plus leafleting for which there is some doubt over whether or not you get paid. You also claim to make regular visits to the gym, and also coach youngsters to play Rugby.

HOW COME YOU ALWAYS APPEAR TO BE ON HERE?

You can't be in two places at once.

I've also suggested to one church that as it has a huge student group maybe instead of them throwing out PC's with the trash when they finish Uni they give it to the church who then let working families use it until the children have left school & then it can be let out to another family.
I was looking for a solution but hey I'm just a Tory voter!
Telling other people what to do instead of doing something yourself?

That's what you expect from a Tory voter.

Nice to know that your wife let you out.
What a total moron you are! I was trying to come up with a solution to help working people & you come back with this rubbish?
No. You were making suggestions to other people as to what THEY should be doing, you were doing NOTHING yourself.

If you want to do something practical, volunteer to help out in a Food Bank. That way you may meet up with some of the victims of the actions taken by this Tory-led government that you think is doing such a grand job.
How can a church offering IT services to school children or the unemployed be telling people what to do?
Oh! I offered to help a big issue seller to get IT skills so he could go on the internet & find a permanent job was I telling the vicar who asked me what to do?
Typical socialist you want the government to throw money this country hasn't got at a problem as basic as people of todays priorities & what's now seen as an essential not a luxury.
How many food banks go around & see exactly what these people are spending their money on?
How many offer to see what these peoples out goings are to try to put them in a financial position so they don't have to go to food banks?
Let's get it right Loonsman there were people using food banks which numbers were increasing under Labour or don't you want to admit that?
Having seen evidence of your IT skills, or lack of, it must be a case of 'the blind leading the blind.'

How many food banks have you visited?

How many have you helped in and spoken to those who have visited?

Do you know who is entitled to visit a food bank, and who issues them with that entitlement?

There are always people who need assistance, and I am first to ADMIT that there were families that needed it when LABOUR were in power.

Now, perhaps you will admit that those numbers have steadily increased in the more than four years of Tory-led government, as have the number of food banks.

I note that, once again, you have to resort to name calling.

Something to be said for consistency I supposed.
I have passed the first section of a ECDL course do you know what that is?
I don't walk around blinkered I can see where people prioritise & if you a Working class man a Labour party member don't think that if these people looked at what is a luxury & what is essential there would be far less of a need for food banks you're dreaming.
One guy goes to a foods bank to get food for himself as his welfare cheque is spent on buying food for his dogs ? are they not a luxury?
one family need a car to drive to work & ferry kids to school why not buy a bicycle & walk to school?
has anyone checked how many Iphones & consoles they have? All luxuries.
When my dad worked we built up Luxuries when he didn't we sold them as they weren't essential now if you're saying all food bank recipients haven't got any luxuries then I know your talking porkies.
I have a driving licence, but that does not make me a driving instructor.

'Driving' a computer does not make a person a computer instructor.

When did you last visit a Food Bank?

How long did you spend in the Food Bank?

How many of the people using the Food Bank did you question with regard their income, why they needed to use the bank and which agency referred them?

According to previous posts of your, you had no luxuries when you were a kid, so how is it that you are now claiming that you 'built up luxuries' that were sold when times were tough? You change your tune to suit your current story.

You will note that I repeated my question about visits to Food Banks, and I note that you have omitted to answer.
luxury's ? Records,Tools & such were what we called luxuries.
Bread & dripping was our evening meal now you might think you're a smartarse socialist but no your just a person looking to argue & berate other posters.
Funny though I've never seen you attack Southy ?
I have criticised South in the past when I have considered that he has been wrong.

I have not criticised his spelling or his grammar, which leaves a lot to be desired, because I understand what he is attempting to communicate.

I criticise you, because you attempt to show that you know a lot about the subject under discussion, but the more you say, the more you show that is not the case.

Not only that, many of the things you say, have a slight variance on things that you have said in the past.

So you had bread and dripping for your evening meal. Lucky you!

I wonder what you would be telling us if, like me and many other older Southampton dwellers, you had your childhood during the war, when there was no NHS, food was on ration and you could not buy clothes or shoes without clothing coupons.

You had you childhood during a post-war Labour government, when the country experienced the biggest house-building programme, the docks were busy, as were other factories in the area.

The fact that you had bread and dripping for your tea, at a time when there was full employment, nothing to do with the Labour government at the time, which also dealt with the resettlement of the service men and women who were returning to civilian life.

Don't come the hard luck story, because there are many families in the area who had it considerably tougher. Check out some old photographs of the city and see how many bomb sites there were, and how many families lost their homes and all their possessions.

AND YOU THINK THAT YOU HAD IT TOUGH!
I have constantly put how I was brought up on posts & through my up bringing I will help any one who at least tries to help themselves.
If some one was trying to start a company & needed free help I'd help.
If a charity wanted leafletting then it's free.
If I live near a pensioner or disabled person & they needed help with their garden or moving something I'd do it.
But I will not help anyone who thinks it should be done for them.
You don't know a thing about my up bringing & unless I started to name names I can't go into it to much so I've come to the decision not to reply to you as you are too blinkered & I'm getting bored with you.
You mind you don't dislocate your shoulder.

It could easily happen if you keep patting yourself on the back.

Self praise is not worth much.
self praise? surely I was doing something all volunteers & charity workers are doing? helping our fellow man or isn't that the socialist way?

For most it is sufficient to know that a person or persons have been helped, without having to inform everyone what you have done.

I note that you have made no claim to have helped out in a Food Bank.

How many food banks go around & see exactly what these people are spending their money on?
How many offer to see what these peoples out goings are to try to put them in a financial position so they don't have to go to food banks?
Let's get it right Loonsman there were people using food banks which numbers were increasing under Labour or don't you want to admit that?
Having seen evidence of your IT skills, or lack of, it must be a case of 'the blind leading the blind.'

How many food banks have you visited?

How many have you helped in and spoken to those who have visited?

Do you know who is entitled to visit a food bank, and who issues them with that entitlement?

There are always people who need assistance, and I am first to ADMIT that there were families that needed it when LABOUR were in power.

Now, perhaps you will admit that those numbers have steadily increased in the more than four years of Tory-led government, as have the number of food banks.

I note that, once again, you have to resort to name calling.

Something to be said for consistency I supposed.
I have passed the first section of a ECDL course do you know what that is?
I don't walk around blinkered I can see where people prioritise & if you a Working class man a Labour party member don't think that if these people looked at what is a luxury & what is essential there would be far less of a need for food banks you're dreaming.
One guy goes to a foods bank to get food for himself as his welfare cheque is spent on buying food for his dogs ? are they not a luxury?
one family need a car to drive to work & ferry kids to school why not buy a bicycle & walk to school?
has anyone checked how many Iphones & consoles they have? All luxuries.
When my dad worked we built up Luxuries when he didn't we sold them as they weren't essential now if you're saying all food bank recipients haven't got any luxuries then I know your talking porkies.
I have a driving licence, but that does not make me a driving instructor.

'Driving' a computer does not make a person a computer instructor.

When did you last visit a Food Bank?

How long did you spend in the Food Bank?

How many of the people using the Food Bank did you question with regard their income, why they needed to use the bank and which agency referred them?

According to previous posts of your, you had no luxuries when you were a kid, so how is it that you are now claiming that you 'built up luxuries' that were sold when times were tough? You change your tune to suit your current story.

You will note that I repeated my question about visits to Food Banks, and I note that you have omitted to answer.
luxury's ? Records,Tools & such were what we called luxuries.
Bread & dripping was our evening meal now you might think you're a smartarse socialist but no your just a person looking to argue & berate other posters.
Funny though I've never seen you attack Southy ?
I have criticised South in the past when I have considered that he has been wrong.

I have not criticised his spelling or his grammar, which leaves a lot to be desired, because I understand what he is attempting to communicate.

I criticise you, because you attempt to show that you know a lot about the subject under discussion, but the more you say, the more you show that is not the case.

Not only that, many of the things you say, have a slight variance on things that you have said in the past.

So you had bread and dripping for your evening meal. Lucky you!

I wonder what you would be telling us if, like me and many other older Southampton dwellers, you had your childhood during the war, when there was no NHS, food was on ration and you could not buy clothes or shoes without clothing coupons.

You had you childhood during a post-war Labour government, when the country experienced the biggest house-building programme, the docks were busy, as were other factories in the area.

The fact that you had bread and dripping for your tea, at a time when there was full employment, nothing to do with the Labour government at the time, which also dealt with the resettlement of the service men and women who were returning to civilian life.

Don't come the hard luck story, because there are many families in the area who had it considerably tougher. Check out some old photographs of the city and see how many bomb sites there were, and how many families lost their homes and all their possessions.

AND YOU THINK THAT YOU HAD IT TOUGH!
I have constantly put how I was brought up on posts & through my up bringing I will help any one who at least tries to help themselves.
If some one was trying to start a company & needed free help I'd help.
If a charity wanted leafletting then it's free.
If I live near a pensioner or disabled person & they needed help with their garden or moving something I'd do it.
But I will not help anyone who thinks it should be done for them.
You don't know a thing about my up bringing & unless I started to name names I can't go into it to much so I've come to the decision not to reply to you as you are too blinkered & I'm getting bored with you.
You mind you don't dislocate your shoulder.

It could easily happen if you keep patting yourself on the back.

Self praise is not worth much.
What puzzles me is, if you are doing all this good work for your elderly neighbours and various charities, plus leafleting for which there is some doubt over whether or not you get paid. You also claim to make regular visits to the gym, and also coach youngsters to play Rugby.

HOW COME YOU ALWAYS APPEAR TO BE ON HERE?

You can't be in two places at once.
Maybe I can ?
Two faced does not count.

True, but how many come on here boasting about what they do?

For most it is sufficient to know that a person or persons have been helped, without having to inform everyone what you have done.

I note that you have made no claim to have helped out in a Food Bank.
You say I'm boasting I'm saying I'm trying to show you how wrong you are but as I've already said you're just boring me.

Let's get it right Loonsman there were people using food banks which numbers were increasing under Labour or don't you want to admit that?
Having seen evidence of your IT skills, or lack of, it must be a case of 'the blind leading the blind.'

How many food banks have you visited?

How many have you helped in and spoken to those who have visited?

Do you know who is entitled to visit a food bank, and who issues them with that entitlement?

There are always people who need assistance, and I am first to ADMIT that there were families that needed it when LABOUR were in power.

Now, perhaps you will admit that those numbers have steadily increased in the more than four years of Tory-led government, as have the number of food banks.

I note that, once again, you have to resort to name calling.

Something to be said for consistency I supposed.
I have passed the first section of a ECDL course do you know what that is?
I don't walk around blinkered I can see where people prioritise & if you a Working class man a Labour party member don't think that if these people looked at what is a luxury & what is essential there would be far less of a need for food banks you're dreaming.
One guy goes to a foods bank to get food for himself as his welfare cheque is spent on buying food for his dogs ? are they not a luxury?
one family need a car to drive to work & ferry kids to school why not buy a bicycle & walk to school?
has anyone checked how many Iphones & consoles they have? All luxuries.
When my dad worked we built up Luxuries when he didn't we sold them as they weren't essential now if you're saying all food bank recipients haven't got any luxuries then I know your talking porkies.
I have a driving licence, but that does not make me a driving instructor.

'Driving' a computer does not make a person a computer instructor.

When did you last visit a Food Bank?

How long did you spend in the Food Bank?

How many of the people using the Food Bank did you question with regard their income, why they needed to use the bank and which agency referred them?

According to previous posts of your, you had no luxuries when you were a kid, so how is it that you are now claiming that you 'built up luxuries' that were sold when times were tough? You change your tune to suit your current story.

You will note that I repeated my question about visits to Food Banks, and I note that you have omitted to answer.
luxury's ? Records,Tools & such were what we called luxuries.
Bread & dripping was our evening meal now you might think you're a smartarse socialist but no your just a person looking to argue & berate other posters.
Funny though I've never seen you attack Southy ?
I have criticised South in the past when I have considered that he has been wrong.

I have not criticised his spelling or his grammar, which leaves a lot to be desired, because I understand what he is attempting to communicate.

I criticise you, because you attempt to show that you know a lot about the subject under discussion, but the more you say, the more you show that is not the case.

Not only that, many of the things you say, have a slight variance on things that you have said in the past.

So you had bread and dripping for your evening meal. Lucky you!

I wonder what you would be telling us if, like me and many other older Southampton dwellers, you had your childhood during the war, when there was no NHS, food was on ration and you could not buy clothes or shoes without clothing coupons.

You had you childhood during a post-war Labour government, when the country experienced the biggest house-building programme, the docks were busy, as were other factories in the area.

The fact that you had bread and dripping for your tea, at a time when there was full employment, nothing to do with the Labour government at the time, which also dealt with the resettlement of the service men and women who were returning to civilian life.

Don't come the hard luck story, because there are many families in the area who had it considerably tougher. Check out some old photographs of the city and see how many bomb sites there were, and how many families lost their homes and all their possessions.

AND YOU THINK THAT YOU HAD IT TOUGH!
I have constantly put how I was brought up on posts & through my up bringing I will help any one who at least tries to help themselves.
If some one was trying to start a company & needed free help I'd help.
If a charity wanted leafletting then it's free.
If I live near a pensioner or disabled person & they needed help with their garden or moving something I'd do it.
But I will not help anyone who thinks it should be done for them.
You don't know a thing about my up bringing & unless I started to name names I can't go into it to much so I've come to the decision not to reply to you as you are too blinkered & I'm getting bored with you.
You mind you don't dislocate your shoulder.

It could easily happen if you keep patting yourself on the back.

Self praise is not worth much.
self praise? surely I was doing something all volunteers & charity workers are doing? helping our fellow man or isn't that the socialist way?
True, but how many come on here boasting about what they do?

For most it is sufficient to know that a person or persons have been helped, without having to inform everyone what you have done.

I note that you have made no claim to have helped out in a Food Bank.
You say I'm boasting I'm saying I'm trying to show you how wrong you are but as I've already said you're just boring me.
When you have been helping out at a food bank and spoken to a few of its customers to find out who referred them, and the reason why they need to be there, come back and let us know.

Maybe your opinions would change, although I very much doubt it because you would never countenance the fact that you could possibly have got things wrong.

Have a nice trip to Exford.

That's what you expect from a Tory voter.
