How many are in food poverty?

How many are in food poverty?

With the world billiards competition over my attention can once again be fully focused on my blog.

I must say it was a most exciting seventeen days of top class action on the green baize and yours truly was lucky enough to watch most of the action on my neighbours television.

During my visits my trusty neighbour extended their hospitality and my good self tucked in to many hearty meals and snacks over the course of the tournament.

How lucky one is to be able to visit a friend and not only watch their TV but to be given a meal too.

To be honest I was quite glad of my neighbours generosity because in recent weeks one has found it quite difficult getting by due to rising prices in the shops.

It seems a lots of people are struggling to make ends meet indeed only a few days ago an article appeared on a national news site saying that five million families are borrowing to pay for food and general bills.

Dipping into savings to pay for food may satisfy the hunger of today but it is definitely not a strategy that will work in the long term as the day will come when the savings are gone then what will happen?

Just as the term 'energy poverty' recently entered the vocabulary I fear that 'food poverty' is another phrase about to make its was into daily life.

What gets me is all these people who have back gardens but prefer to grass or pave them over rather than using the garden to grow food.

Do people not realise that free food can be grown at home?

Are there some out there who really believe that food only comes from the supermarkets? It would appear so.

Of course those in flats are at a disadvantage when it comes to growing food but those in the older houses with gardens certainly could.

Come to think of it maybe those sponging off state benefits should have the amount of money they are paid reduced if their home has a garden.

Why should the hard working people, like my good self, have to subsidise the laziness of those on benefits who prefer to buy supermarket food rather than growing their own if they are able to?

For those on benefits in flats maybe special allotments should be provided so they too can grown their own rather than relying the the tax payer to subsidise their life of supermarket luxury?

Maybe gardening should be taught in schools then the youngsters would have a flying start on how to feed themselves and their families? After all it used to be a subject taught to children in years gone by.

What do you think?

Sell a car, downsize to a smaller property or rent a room out,
Until then do not dare to moan that you have no money.
You have sponged off your neighbour for the last few days - electricity and food.
What did you contribute or give back?
Have you no shame?

I am not sponging off the state so one will try to carry on with my lifestyle, which some may mistakenly see as opulent, for as long as possible.

As for paying back my neighbour well I may nip round and clean their windows for them in the next few days which will go some way to paying back all their generosity.

What a load of tat cobbled together with dodgy punctuation - billiards, neighbour's food, growing vegetables, the opposite to veg growing: 'supermarket luxury' which could be punished by benefit removal, what to do if someone lives on benefits in a flat et cetera.

Can you think of any bloggers suffering commonsense poverty?

As Demoness says, you no more understand poverty than fly in the air! As for gardening, the equipment, fertiliser, physical ability to do? There are very genuine cases of course, but it does cmd down to priorities and choices! There are many, like you, who feel that two cars, large homes, expensive clothes are essential, just yesterday, oh dear an Ivor moment, we received a photo of a young relative in a full set of cricket whites clutching a new bat, young brother astride an expensive toy tractor, two cars and hair-does, cigarettes and alcohol essential, (stress relief) food? Like you, scrounge wherever possible. I have every sympathy for the genuine cases of food poverty, and there are some, but absolutely no sympathy for case stated and people like you. If you must write, at least make it plausible based on knowledge and factual research. In the meantime, don your gear, on retreat to your games room.
