THE Tories would have you believe that they are the party of economic management, but the reality is they are the party of foodbanks.

Foodbank use is up year on year, between January and June 2018 Cheshire foodbanks helped 16 per cent more people than in 2017.

You can chart their time in office to the number of foodbanks in the country.

Foodbanks themselves are under so much pressure that they are having to reduce the amount given out per food parcel as they are running out of supplies.

The majority of people using a foodbank are in work and despite doing all they can, are forced to visit a foodbank to feed themselves and their family.

Universal Credit has made things worse, with delays built in to the system forcing people who are already struggling into impossible situations.
