Foodbanks in NI are the paramilitary wing of social services

https://strabane.foodbank.org.uk/get-help/how-to-get-help/
The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, childrenís centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities.

This system is wrong on so many levels.

Concentrate on your beloved United Kingdom. ;)

Your must recent insult
One jokey comment directed at yourself over your continued dismissal of any concerns or negativity about the "UK's" future after Brexit.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Food banks have nothing to do with brexit, are we clear on that?

Mr Dempsey said SVP provided around 2,500 families in Cork with food every week, in addition to supplying its own hostels, Simon, Cork Penny Diners, womenís shelters, and school breakfast clubs.

How can you say that?? Just because Ireland aren't handling their economy well either doesn't mean that Brexit hasn't been a contributory factor in the increase of people using foodbanks in the UK.

The latest inflation figures have cited the drop in sterling's value against the Euro due to the Brexit result as a major reason for rising prices and sure rising prices along with wage stagnation contribute to more families being on food banks!

Food banks are linked to savage welfare cuts and failed economic policy, both of which drove the Brexit vote.

Because there was food banks before brexit and there are food banks in countries that are part of the EU?

David McWilliams has a programme on RTE1 tonight at 9.35pm. Will be interesting to see what he has to say as he is a well respected economist.

It is extremely difficult to try and put numbers on the size of the shock to output that could occur in the case of no agreement as Brexit occurs. There are basically no precedents we can identify for a shock of this sort acting across sectors simultaneously.
The nearest we can get is research on the potential and actual impact of port closures. Strike action and the potential for disruption via terrorist and other events have generated some research on this issue for the US. Research commissioned by the CBO published in 2006 suggested that a 3-year shutdown of ports on the West Coast and a one-week shutdown of all ports would generate a near 0.45% drop in GDP. A more recent (2014) analysis of the impact of a 20-day closure of West Coast ports put the impact at 0.3% of GDP.
In our view, the impact of Brexit without an agreement would be orders of magnitude larger than these estimates. In addition to the issues created around movement of goods through customs procedures, there would be a broader regulatory shock extending across sectors. Given the breadth of the EUís regulatory reach, it is very likely there would be important impacts which we have missed in the account above. In addition, the share of trade in GDP for the UK is significantly higher than for the US.
