Erm your history is wrong. UKIP were known as patriotic Conservative before rebranding as UKIP then again rebranding to national Conservative. The AFL was never actually a party it was more of a idea for a party it fail to start as it was too similar to Nat cons.
Nat cons were not "anti Muslim" it dissolved due to a lack of members.
I didn't know the history of the Nat Cons so apologies for getting the naming wrong.

I would argue that their positions regarding the burka and Islam contributed to their lack of members, but each to their own.

This is disgusting from the tories... None of this will make it to mainstream news or the front page probably, but this is terrible from the government.
The author of this bill is not a Tory, he's a Libertarian.

Labour aren't just going to take the bulldozer to food banks and leave it like that - any suggestion otherwise is just silly. Obvious opposition to this bill without the correct alternatives to food banks being implemented simultaneously.

It's a joke Bill meant to highlight Labour thinking food banks are a bad thing.

Point of order Mr Speaker but The Rt. Hon. JammyDuel has not been bestowed the privilege of membership from the glorious Conservative and Unionist Party for several years (indeed he's probably top of enemy of the Tory state list). He is in fact a member of the dangerously radical Libertarian Party.

Mr Speaker, I ask that that this poster strikes his act of implied defamation from the record!

...

Mr Speaker, i will be voting against this bill on the grounds that private charity and compassion is something to be encouraged and that allowing job centers to refer people to them (the main reason more people have been able to access them) was a good decision by the RL coalition.

He does have a point though. Labour for example have no way of actually enforcing a 50% reduction in food bank usage even if they solve all poverty. There will always be people who want free food or cannot manage their finances. Something which would have been addressed somewhat by the universal credit bill recently rejected by this House.

This is a very strange bill. The left want to end food banks by ending the reason for food bank usage. I.e ending austerity

dangerously radical Libertarian Party.
With its terroristic ideas of a small state, low taxes and allowing people to put whatever they want into their bodies?

Is the proposer being deliberately dull, or can't he help it?
No, merely applying #LabourLogic to the situation. although I do guess i don't apply it perfectly because if I were doing that it would be the charity I would ban given that is what is driving the supposed problem.

As I've said in the notes, I'm not the one that has a problem with charity, it's Corbyn and Co as seen in the tweet below:

Except that would not end food bank usage, food bank usage pre-dates austerity, in fact the situations leading to a need for food banks predates capitalism and if you look to those countries that have embraced socialism you will find widespread starvation, and I mean real starvation and not just for the worst off.

Well no, Labour won't take the bulldozer to food banks, they won't do anything. Food bank usage won't decrease by 50% in the first year and end after 3, in all likelihood it would continue to rise rapidly because the increased use is driven not by demand but by supply, donations have been increasing 10-20% YoY and that isn't about to stop just because of a different government.

Totally agree, this bill seems as if it would cause far more issues than it solves.

If this is meant to be satire or just to criticise Mr Corbyn, does the author intend to put it to the vote?

No intention whatsoever, although I do expect to see a number of those who ridicule the idea still going on about how bad increased food bank usage is a bad thing. It's also not just about Corbyn, it's about the braindead mob in general who complain about charity and indirectly say it's bad that people should choose to redistribute their wealth.
