It's easy to be philanthropic when you are bringing in millions of pounds per year. Maybe he should start off a PL players fund towards this. If they all donated 5% of their salary to this then let me see:

Say average pay in PL equal £30k per week x 20 teams x 25 players per squad = £780m p.a. x 5% = £39m

Now if the government were to say that is tax deductible from their salaries then the players could afford quite comfortably to provide say up to £40m per annum towards childrens meals. Now that would be philanthropic and worthy.

It staggers me the levels to which people on here will avoid any kind of scrutiny towards the government.

It shouldn't be the job of Man United's striker to feed hungry kids. The fact he's having to pick up the tab just highlights the Victorian attitudes of our government towards the poor.

You have an MP who takes 50k a year in expenses lecturing single mum's that they can't afford to provide free school meals because it will make them dependent on the state.

Pigs is the only word.

...and i'm afraid the majority of posts you make are about the government and how much you hate them. I wasn't making a point about the government I was making a point that its easy for multi millionaires to throw their hat in the ring and support worthy causes, but true generosity comes from providing that support directly and I came up with a way of supporting that cause with a little tax relief.

What government cuts have been made in answer to our present situation? None.

No more adapting to a crisis, modern governments just borrow insane amounts they will not be responsible for repaying.

Like 100 billions plus on a railway line upgrade, at a time like this.

The idea of a 'hard times' Dickensian era has the tories salivating, and the voters have handed it to them on a plate.

So we can get the footballers to pay for hungry kids, maybe pop stars can pay for victims of domestic abuse, cricketers can pay for housing the homeless and the government can spend the savings on giving billionaires another tax break?

A Tory MP has quit her government job after voting for a Labour motion to offer free school meals during holidays until Easter 2021.

Caroline Ansell said vouchers were not a long-term solution - but they helped families struggling with the pandemic.

An honourable resignation I feel.

If it didn’t include Easter and the issue was revisited in February or March then it probably would’ve gone through but the challenge couldn’t be resisted.

Interesting comment about people on Twitter apparently accusing him of being uneducated

I really like ‘we require guidance’ from number 10.

You got that right.

Another naive justice warrior with no grasp of the bigger picture.

We are supposed to take him serously?

Always good to hear your views on the matter Ebenezer.

I am right of centre and make no apology for that but that vote last night made my blood boil!
There are a lot of bad things in this world that we can't do anything about but we have helped multi billion pound businesses by allowing them to abuse the furlough scheme when they already had enough money to take up the slack themselves and yet at the same time we are unable to ensure that the poor children in this country get one hot meal per day.
Last night was a bad one for democracy in my eyes and I am currently penning a letter to my MP to say that if the election was tomorrow then I would vote red - something that I have never done before!
Those men and women should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.

When you consider that the government has claimed to be responsible fiscally, the projected cost of HS2 is now over 400 millions per mile for the first link to Old Oak Common.

And there are 245 miles!!

The cost of the school meals is a pittance, 126 millions the first time round.

Surely it's not the governments job to do everything for the parents?

A schools primary duty is to educate children. Maybe just leave them to focus on that.
