History repeats itself: "Theresa May took your lunch away"
Tessa has reacted angrily to the Conservative manifesto pledge to scrap free school meals for every young child, an immensely successful and popular policy introduced by the Lib Dems in coalition.
In my day, people would chant, "Thatcher, Thatcher, 'milk snatcher', if Theresa May wins with a landslide next month, there'll be shouts of "Theresa May took your lunch away".
Taking lunches away from schoolchildren gives a flavour of what will happen if you don't vote for decent, and independent minded MPs like me in the House of Commons.
Every parent knew their child sat down at a table to eat a nutritious, hot, midday meal with their classmates. This is a hugely popular policy with busy working parents and those who are less well off, alike.
This just demonstrates Theresa May and her colleagues' cold and mean-spirited vision for Britain’s future.
