In one ‘gentle’ comment at Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs), Jeremy Corbyn disgraced every single Conservative MP in the chamber.

The Labour leader focused on issues other than Brexit during the session. And since consecutive Conservative-led governments have decimated many aspects of public life over the last eight years, there’s no shortage of topics for him to choose from.

So Corbyn took a swipe at the government’s failing benefit payment, universal credit. He also raised the recent devastating UN report on austerity and poverty in Britain. Corbyn then spoke about foodbanks, and the recent ‘interest’ they have gained from Conservative MPs. He said:

The Trussell Trust has also pointed out that foodbanks face record demand this December. I just gently say to her and the members behind her, foodbanks are not just a photo opportunity for Conservative MPs who themselves… supported the cuts in benefit that have led to the poverty in this country.

As the Canary previously reported, Conservative MPs have been falling over each other to visit foodbanks of late. Numerous MPs then posted pictures of themselves doing so. That’s why Corbyn called them out in the commons for using foodbanks as a “photo opportunity”. And he also pointed out that those MPs righteously posing for these publicity shots have voted for the very cuts that made foodbanks necessary in the first place.
