FOR THE FEW: Labour blocks plan to provide free school meals for all Universal Credit households  

LABOUR has blocked an amendment in the House of Lords that would have given free school meals provision for some of Britains poorest families.

Liberal Democrat Lord Storey moved amendment 58, after clause 39, to insert a new clause Provision of free school lunches to all pupils in households in receipt of universal credit.

Labour whipped all its Lords members to abstain from the amendment that led to the plan being shot down. 

Corbynite and Left-wing blogger Aaron Bastani slammed the move branding it “utterly bewildering” due to Labour’s usual stance on the issue. 

He added: “Can’t see any mention of this from journalists at the Mirror or Guardian.”

“But perhaps feeding kids from poor families isn’t that interesting for them.”

“Or they only care when Tories are the ‘baddies’. Amendment here.”

He added: “The people who whine about the Tories taking us to fascism for twitter clout won’t even acknowledge this story. Watch.”
