    Why is Joan Burton opening a food bank? Is she a poverty denier?

    WTF is Joan Burton up to?

    For a leader of a party in Government to be seen opening, with red tape & scissors, a FOOD BANK, is nothing short of an absolute scandal.

    For this person to be the leader of the LABOUR PARTY. . Seriously - Words fail me.

    Is Joan a poverty denier?

    Well it seems there is clearly a need and, after nearly five years in Government, Joan is applauding the recognition of that need.

    The fact that people have to resort to food banks is an indicator that there's a hell of a lot of people without the minimum adequate income that is necessary to survive on.

    That's how deluded they are lads, detached from reality is an understatement. As a leftie it both saddens me whilst I can't help a wry smile from crossing my lips and their hubris.

    Roll on GE 2016.
