Schoolchildren in state schools now get on average some 50p, up from 37p since Jamie Oliver. (Admittedly for only one lunch meal, but it is still nevertheless revealing.) Now compare that with the average spend per day on food for prisoners. £1.87. Those in a Young Offenders' Institute get a budget of £3.81 per day, over double the armed forces. How much do politicians get? £20 per day, no receipts required. 12 times as much as a soldier. Can it be any clearer where their real priorities lie?
