Victory for free school meals campaign in Islington

It looks like the labour party have been successful in introducing free primary school meals , £100 rebate for pensioners and a reduction in councillor allowances. Click here to read an account of what sounds like a very exciting meeting. Well done!

I am amazed that the green party councillor was unwilling to support the free school meals initiative. Collective efforts to feed large groups are always a much greener solution - less transport, less wrapping and most effective use of cooking energy.

I am so fed up with the argument about subsidizing rich people. Last time I checked rich people still get to use the NHS, claim child benefit and take advantage of clean drinking water. Why don't we just tax the rich more rather than deny free school meals for all?
