I'm more interested in what the remaining 13% were thinking.

13% say it depends on whether their parents voted Leave or Remain.

Respondents maybe referring to hungry conservative kids after a long day hitting the books in Eton, playing cricket or what have you?

"Only if we can make a profit on it" would probably be one of the responses. Gruel being made for pennies and sold at a massive markup to local councils.

I imagine the parents would be made to post on Facebook thanking the Government each time, or no gruel for your kids that day.

The people who matter have spoken. No food for hungry kids is clearly the grown-up opinion and must be enacted at all costs.

The other 13% were probably putting ideas forward to what the hungry kids could be fed to.

13% replied that the poor should eat their own children. After all they keep churning the little fuckers out so there is plenty to go round.

Careful mate, that sort of extremism will land you on a database. You'll probably get some crimes done on you by an undercover restaurant inspector.

47% said no, we should feed hungry children in all countries, not just our own.



Nah, they're cunts. And they've won.

Those 47% will say 'we should help our own' when discussing foreign aid though. Guarantee it.

Why don't these kids get on their bikes and look for work, like Norman Tebbit's da? Or take an IRA bomb to the spine, like Norman Tebbit's wife?

The Thick of It nailed satirising the centrist response to policy which arbitrarily deprives real humans (why is Armando such a centrist when his crowning achievement is a brutal dissection of it?).

'Norwuns tryna fuck over special needs kidzz'

I think much like Guardian journalists, we have to accept it was just a fucking job to them, all grift.

There's a weird thing there, to be so immersed you can pick it apart with ease yet to - deservedly - great acclaim, yet be nearly completely against any reforming force.

Not that I don't think this is an accurate representation of Tory voters' views, but the question was a disgrace. It asked whether schools should have to feed the kids during the holidays. So there was no option to say, of course kids who need it should be fed, but it should be the government's responsibility outside of term time, not the schools'. It can't be a good use of resources to keep school kitchens open during the holidays rather than use other kitchens which would be open anyway.

I still answered "yes," though, because I knew how the results would be used and I didn't want to be on the "don't feed the kids" side of the equation.

It does seem a bit odd, with no context at all.

Maybe lots of the media class are actually just grifters and facilitator but we've been conditioned not to notice; so your Alex Jones', Peterson's and Laurence Fox's are the ones that stick out.

It's not really that different to these journalists pumping out the sordid details about Corbyn's failure, information that they sat on, to make themselves rich and further pursue their political goals, when you think about it. The difference is one of them did it at the time, for laughs, and the other did it later for money.

Should we feed MPs, or should they all be forced to bring packed lunches?
