The Poverty Tourists

It had to happen – red-eyed Heidi ‘Pass the Onion’ Allen and Frank ‘Foodbank’ Field join forces to patronise the poor in the provinces. The Guardian report tells us that Heidi ‘crocodile tears’ Allen has ‘absolutely had enough’ and has dragged her tut-tutting friend round the country to see just how perfectly dreadful it is for the underclasses.

“This denotes a new offensive…” says Frankenfield

Doesn’t it just!

Allen and Field may think that the endless anecdotes recounting the often tragic circumstances of other people’s lives is ‘blowing the lid’ off an increasingly desperate situation for many more people. It isn’t. We all know it’s a shitshow out there and we don’t need crass and exploitative politicians making political/personal capital out of it.

The absolute nadir of this brand of poverty tourism can be found on Frank Field’s own website from last year where  Wirral Councillor Julie McManus made the following report :

Tawdry and mawkish doesn’t come close…and not forgetting  the cheap plug for Feeding Birkenhead ! Even Charles Dickens would have baulked at writing something like this.

Who in this day and age writes portentous, pseudo-religious sentences as ‘And so it was…” !

Thankfully there are people out there who see the poverty tour stunt for the photo opportunity that it is and regardless of affiliations are just getting on with helping people and not waving a placard proclaiming ‘ I AM A GOOD PERSON, I CARE, HONESTLY’ . Our thanks to Fans Supporting Foodbanks.

  1. They’re all the same even the clowns from the chamber and all its sheep

  2. G’day Leaky

    Its been too cold to write from my little abode this week.

    Just thought I needed to remind people when “Philly “FUCKING” Liar” leaves the shit hole in Brighton Street and crawls back under his rock in west kirby (hopefully under Hilbre Rock to get his arse fracked off) his lies and deceit over the Wirral “Funny” Bizz’s £2,000,000.00 knock off will not go away.

    He will be reminded continually about his fuckin dirty dealings with Tour, Davies, Jones, Jones, Foulkes, Armstrong, Ball, Bradbury, Wilkie, Norman and the stars of the show

    AdderleyDadderleyDooLally and “The Chamber Potty Basnett


    there is a full and proper public apology.



    It won’t go away “Phil the Very Very Very Very Slimy , Elusive, FUCKING LYING and Deluded Dill” just cos you’ve gone off to bury your head and shite in the sand.

    That feels better Lordy just chatting to you XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

  3. “Heidi Allen and Frank Field make an odd partnership…”

    No they don’t. What’s this, more Guardian fakery? They both have much to win, electorally. They stand to be on the receiving end of votes, flooding in from people who think “something MUST be done”, but never think beyond this.

    They see Heidi and Frank “doing something” and their minds are made up.
