who would have thought that following my tory MP on twitter would lead me into arguments with people who think poor parents should just buy cheap porridge from Lidl if they want their kids to have food



I said to this person that the government has a responsiblity to help people so they can live rather than just survive and she's now on a whole thing about personal responsiblity (cos yeah lack of that is what makes people poor ok then) and then this "For me, the government isn鈥檛 there to provide a lifestyle" yeah housing and food is a "lifestyle"

*breath in and mute*
