Free school meals for primary children

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Primary school children in Scotland are to get free school meals in a pilot scheme costing the English taxpayer £5m.

Parents of English children will still have to pay for their children to have school meals.

School meals in England current cost as little as 37p to produce with the British government pledging to increase this to 50p.  In Scotland in excess of 70p on average is spent on a school meal.

    If we scrap Trident, we’d have no problem in giving kids in England free school meals too. How ’bout it?

    But if we scrap Trident how can we continue supporting the Americans in Operation Kill the Darkies and Steal Their Oil?

    I’m undecided on Trident to be honest. The whole concept of MAD is … mad … but then the way things are going at the moment we need some way of frightening the shit out of mad Jihadi’s in case they get any silly ideas. Then again, it’s the enemy within that we need to worry about.

    There’s no conceivable use for Trident. It hasn’t stopped suicide terror attacks and won’t help against bird flu…

    I’m not entirely sure about Trident myself TBH – but at the end of the day, I think that any fallout (see what I did there?) from not having it could be far greater than the cost of actually building it, so I’d almost certainly vote yay rather than nay, given the chance.

    In any case, sorry, but you’re a fool if you REALLY think that the money saved would be spent on anything worthwhile. Certainly not anything of any real benefit to England or the English. Free Pizza Hut meals for the Scots, most likely.
