Nicky Morgan said Tories might have agreed to extra school meals if one hadn’t been called “scum”
Of all the reasons to vote down an attempt to make sure children don’t go hungry – and we’ve yet to hear one that wasn’t sociopathic – this one from Nicky Morgan has to be the most pathetic.
Nicky Morgan: Maybe we would have voted to give kids Free School Meals if a labour MP hadn't called us Tory scum.@bphillipsonMP: So kids will go hungry this Christmas because you don't like the parliamentary process?#BBCqt pic.twitter.com/UnOmCkzcHs

This is the incident in question, in case you need the “previously in politics” reel.
"Did the honorable lady just call me scum?"

Who are the snowflakes meant to be, again? As Labour MP Bridget Phillipson said –
“So, kids go hungry this Christmas because you don’t like the parliamentary process.“
What can we say about that? Nothing that these people haven’t covered.
No offence but if you’re willing to punish kids with starvation at Christmas because you got called scum by one MP then maybe you are scumpic.twitter.com/PkZlDweflF

So, let me get this right. Nicky Morgan said that the Tories may have decided not to vote for free school meals because one of them was called ‘scum’?
They reacted to being called scum by behaving like, err, scum?

Nicky Morgan going for “civility” when it comes to feeding kids is…not the winning strategy she thinks it is.

Sticks and stones may break their bones but kids will still go hungry.
