Theresa May defends plan to scrap school dinners: ‘Let them eat cake!’


Critics of the Conservative’s plan to scrap school dinners have raised concerns that hungry children are unlikely to give a flying fidget about the mathematical value of x; the photosynthesis of oxbow lakes during the Norman Conquest; or the spelling of difficult words such as ‘disenfranchised’.

In a follow-up announcement, with her trademark shit-eating grin almost intact, Mrs May insisted that the cake plan isn’t half baked and assured voters the recipe had not changed and will be ‘strong and stable, like a Victoria Sponge’. She also denied it would never be subject to a government consultation, and there may or may not be a cap on some unessential ingredients such as eggs, sugar, flour and butter.

Meanwhile, George Osborne has tweeted a warning that the final recipe could include generous amounts of fox jam and traces of Chancellor Philip Hammond.
