A Scottish council is planning to provide school meals 365 days a year to children from low income families.
North Lanarkshire Council said its proposal would help tackle "holiday hunger".
The "Food 365" programme would cover the 175 days of the year when lunches are not served in school.
two questions (there will be more...)
what are these parents spending all the benefits on, if not on food? what are they doing with all their spare time that they cannot produce healthy, nutritious food from cheap, fresh ingredients? they would be far better spending the money on cooking classes for parents. Sadly though, they will probably not be able to find people with the skills to run them.
So - in a number of threads I see people throw around phrases that infer the US is a hugely dangerous place with a high murder rate from guns. It's often used to counter proposals for UK citizen arming. Also, in my discussions with people around the world gun control is seen as a no brainer. I thought a fresh thread would be of use.
First - the majority of deaths in the US from guns are suicides, not murders.
Once you strip out those, murder rates are down to Canada or European level.
Next, strip out murders by non-whites: very difficult to do on a national level, but in NY and chicago, police stats show that african american suspects in shootings are disproportionately represented, in NY by 7-1 (whereas the population ratios are much more like 1:1.6).
At the national level, I can't see any breakdown by guns alone, but african americans are down for 53% of murders, whilst being less than 20% of the population.
this site is a great example of progressives lying about stats - read it yourself
So - as I say in conversation to a lot of people - if you strip out suicides and black shootings, the US is safer for gun murders than most European countries and Canada. If you want to stop gun deaths in the US, focus on mental health (suicides) and black gun crime. Gun control is not relevant to either.
If we want to arm the citizens of europe, it should be on cultural and ethnic lines based on stats.

Went to buy some lemonade earlier today, massive Tesco's, soft juice aisle...
Schweppes : With sugar and sweeteners
Barr's : With sugar and sweeteners
Tesco's own brand : With sugar and sweeteners
Some cheap shit : With sugar and sweeteners
FFS! If I want artificial sweeteners I'll buy a diet one. Surely one would exist that was just sugar...... yes, but £2.80 for a litre...
Just grabbed the Schweppes one. Pissed off with that though, when did they start putting sweeteners into non diet juice?
Milk I like, mostly in a cup of tea, or with cereal.
Chocolate I love, mostly with a cup of tea.
Yeah, I pretty much just wanted to moan about artificial sweeteners in normal juice and my only option was £2 more for a bottle half the size. If I wanted 2 litres it would have been £5.60 not 75p-£1.50.
Boring myself now, anyway...
