Not sure if anyone else has posted this video yet (it's only 7 minutes long so it won't take too much of your time). It is a short micro play.


It's basically about a politician who is completely out of touch with the reality of the lives of some of the poorest in Britain doing a "cooking segment" to show why the poorest shouldn't need to use food banks, and shows the attitude many who have never faced such hardship tend to have.

What was your take on this video?

That.....that was...kinda deep, borderline scary. She has a point, but no need to be get so mad and creepy about it. The cooking was soooo creepy, no sounds apart from her talking and the sound of tin opening and dripping soup :/

That was brilliant, thanks for posting it The disgusting thing is I've heard people spouting **** like her a few times in person now. I would love to see how long they would survive in a situation where there is no heating in the middle of December and they've got a tin of beans to last them a few days. They just have no idea.

Aye, it's true the majority can at least always feed themselves (heating...not necessarily, we could never afford it anyway). But there are people who fall through the cracks or are treated unfairly by the system and end up having no choice but to use food banks.

Preaching to the choir means you are trying to make believers out of people who already believe, or convince people who are already convinced. Like I don't need convincing since I already defend food banks users.

It is an actual phrase right? :erm:

Yeah it's an actual phrase, but I don't really think I am preaching to the choir. I have found that a lot of people on here seem to think a life on benefits is a life of luxury.

You'd think so. But I encounter people like that in real life and they seem sincere

Having these 'crack downs' on poor people on benefits ect and food bank users wins votes.

I've not encountered people that verbal about it in real life, but I have encountered a couple of people who in a moment of anger or having watched a programme which is made to basically piss people off (benefits Britain) chime in with something unsavoury and of sheer ignorance.
