Filton & Bradley MP Jack Lopresti seems to have gone for the ‘Fagin 2020‘ approach as he joined most of his Tory MP colleagues to vote against the most vulnerable kids getting free school meals. While we understand that there is no ‘magic money tree’ (except for Brexit, there seems to be a magic money free for Brexit) we wonder if perhaps he might has pressured his South West colleague, Jacob Rees-Mogg to perhaps not have stuffed much of his cash in offshore tax havens, then there might be more money to feed kids in need? Yet for all the voting against kids in need getting food, he seems happy to get the cheap gourmet food that MPs get plus also accepted some nice slap-up meals from donors worth almost two grand. However, we’re sure that he’s ‘earning’ those two grant of meals by… errr.. being a Tory? Perhaps the kids in need can earn from free grub too by cleaning chimneys of the venues for the £330 per meal dinner Jack is going to nosh?
So my MP @JackLopresti is willing to accept 6 meals worth a total of £1920, from donors. Yet isn’t willing to provide meals to the most vulnerable children over winter… During a pandemic. £1920 is the equivalent of 834 meals for Primary age children. #ToryScum #FaBS pic.twitter.com/lTeo2Lz21H

At this point, pause to consider that MPs get their food and drink subsidised. A £31 meal in a parliamentary restaurant costs MPs £3.45. In 2018 this subsidy cost the taxpayer £4.4m. I can’t find any record of Tories like Jack Lopresti voting against this.
