Both as bad as each other but alas you can say that about most of the party leaders as they really are a poor lot IMO.

I think Mays proposal is reasonable, you still get £100,000 to give away if you have it. which is way more that I got from my deceased parents.

Likewise, it didn't get more pointless, in fact pointless would have been a much better watch.

Re: June 8th General Election

I cannot stand Jamie Oliver, but I do agree with him that this is a very bad change ;

(Removing free school dinners)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-39969155

For many kids, this is the only hot dinner they will get.
They dont want a Breakfast, they want a good hot dinner.

Why not use the incredibly dumb sugar tax to help fund it.

I vaguely remember free school milk in third pint bottles. It was always warm/sour as it had been hanging about for hours. Some spotty kid would always puke it up through their nose ! Didn't miss it when the Govt. took our milk away ...

Re: June 8th General Election

Speaking as an educator children learn better when they aren't combating hunger.How about MPs and the House of Lords give up their subsidised food and alcohol paid for by the taxpayer?

Ah yes but they work hard

Let face it there aren't many cases of Rickets these days. It's the opposite problem of stopping kids eating or to physically do anything ! Getting rid of these meals is going to make them eat more crap.

Re: June 8th General Election

... and here's Corbyn proving that he hasn't got a clue:

What the Conservatives are doing is to put a £100,000 cap on social care which actually goes nowhere near meeting the needs of somebody with extreme conditions can easily spend £50,000 a year on their care. It’s completely unrealistic, what they’re doing. We will make sure social care is properly funded.”
What on Earth is he on about?

Seriously, old age care has to be paid for and safeguarding the last 100K of an estate for the heirs and using the rest of it isn't a bad way of doing it especially as the estate is not realised until after death. Meaning an ageing relative can still live in their home if appropriate until the end.

I disagree. I have been and am working bloody hard for my assets and money. I've speculated (at personal risk) to accumilate. It's taking blood, sweat and tears (literally). I'm being taxed (a lot) on my income before I can accumulate my assets and money and then I am taxed again on my capital gains when I want to sell some assets to realise some profit from them. How is it right to then strip me of more of my wealth if/when I need care in later life? .......especially when someone else who hasn't bothered has that care simply handed to them?!
