Cameron and Osborne laughing

With Osborne’s spending review introducing a tough-sounding seven day delay for new benefits claimants, the Spectator’s Isabel Hardman is right about the dangers:

Indeed, when David Cameron finally visited the food bank in his constituency, a desperate newly unemployed mother told Sky News:

“My wages had stopped, so I had to wait for the benefits to kick in. We were desperate. We didn’t have any food. At one point I had a fiver, in my back pocket, to just go and get some food.”

So has the chancellor been to a food bank yet?
